LOVED IT!!!

Because it was my first time here, I was cautious at first since I am extremely sensitive and it was an Italian restaurant (gluten overload). BUT it was pleasantly surprised!!! Their gluten free menu was huge and had tons of options. My penne vodka was delicious and I did not get sick! I will definitely be returning here ASAP!

I only have a sensitivity so can’t speak on how well it would be for full celiacs. Had the truffle fries, gluten free penne vodka & the flourless chocolate cake. Made it back home feeling fine. They definitely increased some GF options since I was there last.

Mercato has a separate GF menu online so despite the previous reviews from a couple of years ago, I thought I’d give it a try. On arrival, the server brought me a GF menu (you have to ask, its not marked on the normal menu). There was a good selection of apps and entrees to choose from!

When the server came over I explained I was celiac and asked if there was anything to avoid cross contamination wise. She was pretty distracted as it was busy, and she said it was all good, however I queried if the tortillas were fried separately or in a shared fryer, and it turns out they were fried with everything else, so I opted for a different app. She said my entree would be prepared in a separate pan etc.. but to be honest she didn’t seem super reassuring.

I don’t get any GI symptoms so its hard to confirm if there was gluten exposure- I would use caution and ask lots of questions about the preparation of your food choices if you’re celiac or very sensitive.

They say straight up when you call to ask that there is “flour flying all around the kitchen so nothing is gluten free”. They do offer gluten free pasta but for a celiac human of course this is pointless.
