1. The (only) good- We loved that the restaurant could accommodate my daughter who has Celiac Disease. They told her they could make anything gluten free for her. We went to this restaurant for this reason. My daughter enjoyed her pasta dish very much.
2. HOWEVER, we waited over an hour to get our food. Then, when it came, my mother's pasta side and my husband's dinner was missing. They finally brought my husband's food out about 7 minutes later. They had completely forgotten to put in the order for my mother's pasta, so that didn't come out for another 5-10 minutes or so, and by that time, she had already finished her entree!
3. It was also the most EXPENSIVE meal we've had in years! THEY CHARGED $14 FOR A SIDE OF PASTA! We were never told a side of pasta in plain marina would cost that much! It probably cost them $1 to make- it wasn't even homemade pasta. Completely outrageous. Our bill came to $200 for 4 basic entrees and 2 pasta sides! Crazy expensive!
4. Our waiter and several other staff members at this restaurant had ill-fitting masks, worn below their noses, or chins, even when greeting us upon arrival and talking closely with us. This place is NOT COVID SAFE!
We cannot recommend this place. It was A HUGE RIP-OFF! The food was good but not great, and the service was awful. We are so mad we spent so much money here
— No gluten-free information on the menu
My family and I ate there last night. My daughter had GF pasta and it was excellent! I tried it and could not taste the difference! The staff and waiter were extremely knowledgeable about Celiac. We will definitely be back!
Safe spot with great food , service and familiarity with Celiac as the owners son has it.
This is an absolute hidden gem THE BEST ITALIAN FOOD WE HAVE EVER HAD! The food literally melts in your mouth! We both cleaned our plates even though the portion size was huge! The waiter gave me gluten free crackers since I couldn’t have the gluten free bread which was so very nice. I loved the crackers so much I asked if they made them in house he said no and then came back with a piece of paper with the brand of the cracker and where to buy it from as well as there pasta!! This place is dedicated to gluten free since there chefs son has celiac! They also have gluten free deserts that are to die for! From ice cream to ricotta cheesecake ❤
I don’t even know where to start.. Marco (the chef and owner) has multiple family members that are celiac and he knows how to cook safely. Both him and his staff were attentive, kind, and knowledgeable. The food was some of the best I’ve had since diagnosis! Please get the Sapori rigatoni ... I cant wait to come back every time I’m in Fort Lauderdale.
The meal was amazing! Max was our waiter and he made great recommendations. We had the Snapper and a pasta dish that he recommended. He suggested we have the Octopus as an appetizer and then split the two meals and have it all served in courses. What a wonderful recommendation that was! Then he chose a dessert for us to share! I haven’t mentioned gluten free until now, because I forgot the meal was, as it sacrificed nothing in flavor or texture. This was an absolutely dazzling eating experience!! Amazing food, Fantastic Service and a definite must if you have Celiac!! Thank you Max!!
An AMAZING experience!!!! Tons of GF food options and the entire staff was well educated. The chef stopped by the make certain our food was made to our liking. I can’t say enough good things and 100% recommend
Good good and a lot of GF options but expensive and service not the best
One of the best meals I've ever had - gluten free or not. All five of our meals were amazing! The Chef came out and was so nice. He understood Celiac and told us several of his family members were Celiac. The waitress said there are locals who eat here 3-4x a week. If you have a chance stop here! It's so good!
Fantastic choices...great service. Extremely knowledgeable about Celiac. They have been around for 25 years and there is a reason why. Can't say enough good things.
Our waiter was knowledgeable about celiac and eating gf. after letting him know we needed something gf for my son he recommended shrimp scampi type dish for him. he then brought out some gf crackers to go with the flavored butter they brought out with our bread. we used it after he did of course not to contaminate. great dinner for my son's 18th birthday.
This is a great Italian restaurant. great service, staff, and chef. Chef Marco is very knowledgeable on celiac. His son has it and so he understands the severity. He has a dedicated space for gluten free. They have Brown rice flour and corn flour pasta... his corn for spaghetti is to die for. I had his award winning dish. So delicious and I felt great after. instead of bread, all for gluten free bread sticks and sweet potato dipping for it.
Best GF pasta ever. Chef and son Celiac. Went two nights in a row. Very large menu and really accommodative. A must if in Boca
AMAZING restaurant with lots of gluten free PASTA options as well as a menu that was almost entirely naturally gluten free with lots of proteins and vegetables! Also, almost all the desserts were gluten free as well!
Great food, amazing service and very knowledgeable about gluten free besides endless options of food and desserts
This delicious Italian restaurant offers both brown rice pasta and corn pasta.
