Had the gluten-free ravioli, and it was delicious! Didn’t notice any difference between regular ravioli and the GF ravioli they served.

There’s nothing labeled gluten-free on their menu, but you can see it online.

Outstanding! I told the waiter what I was in the mood for and they created a GF heavenly dish! The scallops and shrimp were cooked to perfection and then penne pasta in a pink sauce was the best I have ever tasted! Will make anything on or off the menu for you. Service is outstanding.

Amazing food. Wonderful atmosphere. Extremely knowledgeable staff. My son, who is celiac with multiple other food allergies, was so happy. They brought his food out first and separate from everyone else’s to prevent cross contamination. Our server was very on top of things. Such a fun place to spend an evening. Live music with an accordion player and the owner sang several songs with him (in Italian) also.

I am celiac and have a nearly immediate reaction to gluten. I was unsure where to really go since almost all of the Italian places in that area say they can do GF. I ended up here because the other places were very crowded and loud while this one is more intimate and personal. I was honestly nervous about how they acted like it was no big deal to make something GF, but I think it’s because they are so used to it. The owner is the one seated us and he was very friendly.

THE FOOD WAS SOOO GOOD!!! I will def go back whenever I’m in Boston. I ordered gnocchi with vegetables and marinara sauce. I asked for cheese on top and my sever brought some Parmesan over to the table after my food came out. I meant I wanted shredded cheese melted on top so I should have been more specific, but it still tasted great.

Oh, and the only dessert that is safe is the lemon gelato served in a scooped out lemon shell but it was delicious!

Great food! I am a very sensitive celiac. I had the gluten free gnocchi with the rose sauce. It was Amazing! I haven’t had gnocchi in years. So hard to find gluten free gnocchi. I was VERY skeptical and they didn’t have a separate menu, but no reaction!!! They clearly knew what they were doing. Gluten free gnocchi doesn’t just happen. It was a Monday night non tourist season, so they obviously had time to do it right. So glad I took the risk! Sooooooo worth it.
