Separate menu. Knowledgeable staff. Kitchen staff was alerted to my Celiac. Fantastic shrimp with pesto and a side of zucchini spirals.

Went last night for happy hour. Sat at the bar. Bartender, Eric, was fantastic! I had the fish dip, shrimp cocktail and Oysters Rockefeller. Eric cut cucumbers for the fish dip and I got the oysters without bread crumbs. Everything was delicious! I also had the cannoli and Rabi side and ate it like soup.

They had numerous GF options. I had the steamed clams as an appetizer which were delicious! I also had a small house salad and the baked penne pasta dish for my main course and both were great as well! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I’ll definitely be back.

Amazing gluten free options! I got the house salad which was great and the baked penne. Nice to have a menu option unavailable to other guests, so I knew for sure it was gluten free. Service was great as well and non celiac family enjoyed their food

Been eating here since they opened. Even my mom, an incredibly sensitive person with celiac who can’t have soy or dairy has never gotten sick here. It’s the only restaurant she hasn’t. We always sit at the bar. Great food and great service.

We enjoyed a safe and delicious meal at our lovely outdoor table. Hostess was very kind and accommodating as she provided their GF menu. Our waitress, Julia, was very knowledgeable and took extra steps to keep us safe from both gluten and soy. She was a delight and took very good care of us, right down to getting the bar to make me an awesome Kahlua and coffee. We both had the NY strip , mashed potatoes and salad with no issues.

Delicious! My daughter had the gf vodka penne pasta with grilled chicken, and asweet potato with rum sauce as a starter. She loved it all. I had the fruit del mar seafood red sauce on gf noodles. It was delicious and it had shrimp, fish calamari, etc in it. We had a wonderful time and did not get sick. My daughter is sensitive so the fact she had no symptoms says a lot. Noodles were cooked perfectly.

They have a seperate gf menu that had a lot of options.

Outstanding seafood restaurant with an extensive cocktail menu. The GF menu offers a lot of interesting options. I did not try the pasta, but the mussels with marinara and shrimp bowl were to die for. My friends loved their non-GF homemade pasta and sauces. We will definitely revisit and take our out-of-town guests.

Separate gluten free menu which offered several options. The waitress said that she would note gluten free and that they had an allergy protocol. The oysters were delicious!!! They did come with wrapped crackers. The waitress said that she specified gluten free. This made me a little weary for my meal but it was tasty and I didn’t get sick!

They have a separate gf menu with many options. Their marinara sauce for the drunken mussels was one of the best I’ve ever had! I ordered the frutti di mare with vodka sauce and the pasta was cooked perfectly. They also had two gluten free dessert options the night I was there. It was one of the best dinners I’ve had out since going gf!!

Awesome! This place is only 9 minutes from our house but we never thought to go here because it’s in a shopping center. Separate gluten free menu with a lot of choices. Our waitress was awesome! And gluten free key lime pie! Will definitely be back!
