They have gluten free pasta that is great! Menu is not marked gluten free, so you have to inquire. But highly recommend the gf pasta, and the food is great.

The staff were very aware of gluten safety and cross-contamination issues. They have gf pasta and can make any pasta dish with it, amd they understand how to keep the food truly gf. There are things in most of the dishes that have been cooked with gluten-containing ingredients, though, so the actual options for celiacs are very limited. It's nice to have *any* nice restaurant I can go to when people I'm with want to go out, but I felt envious of the much more tantalizing dishes my companions were able to eat (I had to get a sausage pasta because every seafood dish would have gluten in it).

The location can not be beat but the food can!! It's in the harbor and we sat outside with incredible views of the boats and the mountains. The service was good- the owner was there and I was able to ask him lots of questions about ordering gf. I asked if they could make me a pasta of my choosing and he said as long as the item is in their kitchen they will make me whatever I want. (Not sure if the chef would like that but it's what I did!) The server was attentive but the pasta was dry. My friend had a seafood pasta that was mediocre. That said, I would go back for the view again and again!

Knowledgable owner and staff. Great Italian food. We have eaten there twice in the last month, and we will definitely be back again soon. Their gluten free pasta is amazing, and is cooked in fresh water. Beautiful views, and a beautiful restaurant. My top pick for a restaurant in Monterey.
