Review of La Villa Italian Restaurant

8109 Timberlake Rd, Lynchburg, VA 24502

Overall Rating


Although the food tastes great, I did have a reaction, which surprised me given the other reviews. Bottom line is, no restaurant that is not dedicated gluten free is completely safe, period. Did these folks do a good job of trying? Absolutely! Is there room for improvement? Yes.

If you are in Lynchburg and have Celiac, this may still be your safest choice. The family is Italian. Generally, Europeans "get" Celiac better than 'Mericanos. I think with a few extra precautions maybe they would be ok. Separate GF dishes washed in a separate sink would be good. And, maybe not bringing all the food out together. Of mine really comes from a different part of the kitchen, why take a chance on putting regular food in close proximity. These are the little details that can cause a fail.

Celiac friendly?
