The staff was more than knowledgeable about gluten free options including cross contamination concerns. Several people working at the restaurant have allergies, sensitivities, or celiac. I have an intolerance/sensitivity and my friend has a severe allergy (vomits for days). We both ate the delicious food with no reaction. Bonus: great atmosphere and a lot of gf choices!
Family owned and so very warm and inviting. Fantastic experience!! Staff was very knowledgeable and they had gluten free warm bread served before dinner!! So nice to finally enjoy the bread and oil too! Great wine list! The food tasted very good! Husband said it was the best steak he has ever had.
I live 2 hours away from this place, and have made trips around dining here! Love love love love LOVE this place. I'm celiac but not overly sensitive. I'm of Italian descent, from NY, and miss this cuisine like crazy. They will give you GF bread with an upcharge. Not bad, but it's worth being able to finally share bread with the other non-GF people at the table! The staff is extremely knowledgable and very polite. It's an old building so it is densely packed and loud, but I enjoy that atmosphere. I love the cacciatore. It's outstanding. The mussels are also a delight. My partner says their martinis are excellent. :) One thing to note - if you have leftovers, ask if you can box it yourself. My partner had a non-GF meal and regular bread to box up. I had my GF meal to box up. They put his bread on my GF meal. We didn't know until we went to have leftovers the next day. I was able to pluck off the bread and crumbs with zero reaction. That's fine for me, but might cause others an issue. Be careful if you have leftovers!
We were visiting from out of town with our dog and needed a place with outdoor seating. I'm also gluten-free. We found this unbelievable gem. We called and they made us a reservation. Upon arrival, the staff was very inviting and brought us a large gluten-free menu and water for our dog. I chose chicken abruzzo. It was absolutely the best sauce I've ever had. The garlic pasta side was cooked to perfection which is difficult with gf pasta. We ended the meal with locally made spumoni. The whole meal was so delicious affordable and the service was top notch!
They baked us fresh GF bread (for all 5 of us) and even provided a GF dessert which was so wonderful, we ordered a second round (GF yellow cake with vanilla bean glaze, coconut and sliced almonds). Our service was superb and they were so accommodating. It is a very nice restaurant but they welcomed our younger children with coloring books and toys. This place is beyond awesome!
