    The 2 existing reviews for this restaurant are contradictory. Do they have gluten-free or don't they? I declined to go until a friend confirmed that they do indeed have gluten-free pasta. Absolutely. I had a great meal of salad, gluten-free pasta, and gelato for dessert. The staff is very aware of gluten-free needs, and they were knowledgeable and helpful. Osteria La Buca is now on my short list of restaurants for when I visit LA. Note that just down the street there is another restaurant with a similar name. I have no idea about that place. Maybe that's where the confusion comes from. Make sure you go to Osteria La Buca. Great place, friendly people, outstanding food and service. (I'm allergic but not celiac, do I don't know if they are celiac friendly.)

    I came to this restaurant simply because I saw it on this ap with a good review. The waiter had no clue about a dedicated kitchen space not what hluten free even meant. He said someone must have confused this restaurant with another restaurant when they wrote their review.
