Spent three days in DC and ate here twice! The homemade pasta and sauce were amazing! Would definitely recommend. Also loved the GF eggplant parmigiana.

There is a limited selection of gluten free and dairy free, since the GF pasta has dairy. I had the whitefish and it was great, definitely was GF.

Excellent service! The waitress made sure to tell the kitchen that I am celiac. I ordered the gluten free pasta and it was so delicious!! I felt very safe eating here and did not get sick at all. 10/10 recommend! Just ask your server about gluten free options and they can answer all questions!

Best GF Italian I've had in the US. They seem to take cross-contamination seriously and I've never gotten sick. The GF eggplant parm and GF short rib bolognese are my go-tos. Both look and taste like the gluten filled versions so it can be a bit of a leap of faith eating their food. I've gotten takeout many times and they're good about labeling the GF items as such. Based on my experience, I'd recommend for those with Celiac and gluten allergies. It's a very nice restaurant (and not cheap) so a good bet when you want a nice night out, perfect for significant celebrations, a nice date night, etc.

BY FAR THE BEST GF ITALIAN FOOD!! The GF pasta tastes amazing. The chicken & eggplant Parmesan are fried separately for the GF orders. Bolognese was also delicious. Staff was very knowledgeable and careful with my order. The entrees are huge but happy to take leftovers from here :).

RPM does have a gluten free menu and the waiter confirmed dishes could be made gluten free, however a few hours after leaving dinner I got so violently ill. I had Brussels sprouts and broccolini as a shared appetizer with coworkers and eggplant Parmesan as an entree. The wait staff also rushed us through the entire night. I definitely don’t trust or recommend that they are safe for celiac.

Waiter assured me all my food was gluten free after explaining to him that I was celiac. He then came to see if my pasta looked gluten free when it came out which left me with a bad feeling. I was violently sick for hours after leaving. I believe it was a wheat bowl of pasta I was given.

Excellent meal- highly suggest the chicken parm. Sadly it has oat flour so they grilled it for me. Still amazing. Did not get sick at all, be clear with the wait staff and they will take you seriously. They knew what celiac was etc

Bartender was helpful; kitchen and staff were not. Served us really bad “GF pasta” but still got very sick. Charged us another tables’ $550 check in addition to our $150 and didn’t return the funds until I went to the CC company.

Excellent carbonara pasta dish. Portion is on the smaller side but still worth it. They assured me the meal was gluten free. I didn't get sick and if was delicious. I will be back!

The food here was outstanding. They have a separate gluten free menu with mostly everything on the main menu. They had gluten free fettuccini and it was clearly homemade and very good! The wait staff was very helpful and understanding.

DO NOT EAT HERE IF YOU ARE CELIAC OR CANNOT EAT GLUTEN! I dined here on Saturday night and ended up not being able to eat anything. I brought my Nima gluten detector device and tested the spaghetti bolognese. The results came back positive for gluten so I talked to my waiter and the chef and they made the dish again with extra precaution. The second plate of spaghetti bolognse also came back positive. I decided to give up on pasta and ordered a plain salmon. That too came back positive for gluten. I ended up leaving hungry and very disappointed. I highly recommend not eating here if you are gluten free because it is not safe!

Server was amazing and so helpful with the GF options (and they had a lot of options)! They have fettuccine that they make in-house that tastes awesome. Food and service was impeccable.

They have an extensive GF menu. I ordered the gluten free lobster fra diavolo and had it delivered via grub hub. $46 plus delivery and tip turned into $64. Value for price, 0 stars. It’s a tiny little meal, the pasta broke when I tried to twirl it around my fork, the lobster was crunchy and didn’t seem properly cooked thru... and it was de-shelled but there was cartilage on/in more than piece. The sauce is NOT spicy, kinda looks and tastes like I imagine chef boyardee would taste? No salt pepper or real spice of any sort. Super disappointing. Safe and gluten free? TBD.
