As a local, Il Vecchio is one of my favorite go-to places. Warm, convivial and comfortable, nicely appointed tho not fancy. They seem knowledgeable about gluten and the menu has many GF options. Everything I've tried here has been wonderful - soups, polenta, meats, veggies, desserts. Prices are very moderate and the wine is affordable. Service is attentive and leisurely (i.e., they don't rush you). This place was a hit with locals from the start and lives up to the accolades. Warning: the daily Workers Lunch menu consists of salad and pasta dishes only, and certain evenings are "chefs choice" with no substitutions, so call ahead to be sure the GF menu is available, if you go.
