Very good choice for celiac, esp if you like sea food. Very good quality food, top notch service. Waitress, Veronica, really took care to check ingredients and ask questions to chef to answer all my questions and assuage my doubts. They even had gf desserts (and they really were gf).

I had fresh oysters scampi (choose type of oyster), clams w greens and beans in a white garlic sauce (can add gf penne, but I didn't), mashed sweet potato w pistachios, roasted red beets (really large portion). All delicious. All on gf menu - no modifications needed. Have "shooter" desserts, w several gf flavors - strawberry, key lime, chocolate.

If adding pasta - its properly cooked separately from other pastas.

I would order everything I had again - no problem.

Has indoor or outdoor seating (downstairs w heaters, upstairs without heaters, but great view). Suggest reservations, may be very popular on weekends. We went on a Tuesday night.

I would go again in a heartbeat. Very high quality food, excellent preparation, great attention to detail, excellent service staff, high standards of ownership and managerial staff.

Saw someone put a copy of the GF menu on here. Already a plus. Sat down and asked for the GF menu, they said sure, and asked if it was for allergy reasons. I said yes. Server was knowledgeable and helpful. I got the Fisherman’s Cioppino with a $2 “side” of GF pasta in the dish. It was a lot of pasta. Great meal! Also got an Omissions beer for those who drink that. Highly recommend this place. GF menu is pretty substantial.

Natalia (owner and chef) is constantly learning more and more about her profession. She recently took classes on gut health and knows all about gluten sensitivity/celiac. The staff is very knowledgeable and they’re willing to go above and beyond to make your culinary dreams come true! We will definitely be back!

Service was on point and they can accommodate Gluten free with no problem. We had some oysters to start and then had the Corfu seafood with penne pasta. It was delicious. They also had a few mini GF desserts. Definitely would return and zero negative reaction.

The server was very knowledgeable on gluten allergies. My daughters food came out safe and clean the first time. The GM came out and talked with us. She said they will accommodate other allergies and if you wanted something GF that wasn’t quite on the menu, they would be happy to make it safely for you. The Shrimp Scampi with Penne was delicious!

I had a safe meal and did not get glutened. The caprese salad was excellent as was the shrimp cocktail. Service was great as was atmosphere of the restaurant. I would caution about ordering oysters on the half shell. The ones I was served were past their prime, but I did not get sick on them. Overall positive experience. I would go back.

When our waitress was told of our special allergy requirements she said she’d bring a manager over to make sure everything was handled well. Robert the GM then took special care of my celiac companion’s additional allergies. The Gluten free pasta was fab!
