I had a pleasant experience... menu is slightly misleading. I got excited because the menu shows gluten free ravioli and tortellini available but is actually just the regular gf spaghetti with the sauces and deconstructed. Great gf calamari. Chef is actually gf as well so he is very good with “sneaky gluten” and ensuring all ingredients are actually gf

The appetizers were super yummy!!! Got a breaded mozzarella & ricotta ball app & a mushroom soup. Both were amazing.

Ordered the gluten free grilled ravioli, but was quickly informed that they would need to substitute for spaghetti noodles—- so I still got it and added chicken. It was very heavy pasta sauce. The ingredients were great, but it needed more noodles as they got lost in all the sauce. I think it would have been much better with regular pasta noodles or actual raviolis. Would not order again, but overall a very nice place!! Kinda pricey!

We ordered online during COVID and the process was easy. We devoured the pizzas and also had pasta with bolognese and one with vodka sauce. The GF Caesar salad was phenomenal. They use cheese crisps in lieu of croutons. Everyone was happy with the meal!

The Server was very knowledgeable & helpful. The kitchen was willing to make any dish gluten free & to accommodate as needed. The food was very good.

We were celebrating my husbands birthday & birthdays with others. We ordered 3 shots that cost $42. Very expensive considering we could buy a whole bottle for $27.

Amazing gf options. Almost the whole menu can be made gluten free. We had dinner and then came back the next day for brunch. Gf Nutella stuffed French toast! The maple syrup waffle fries with brunch were incredible!

Very friendly and helpful staff

Menu is clearly labeled with dishes that are or can be made gluten free. Our server was wonderful and one of her first questions was if anyone the table had food allergies or other restrictions. She was knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable and confident. I ordered the eggplant Parmesan with gluten free spaghetti marinara and it was SO GOOD!!! Honestly, they had many options so choosing one dish was difficult. They had gluten free bread and desserts available. We ordered the bread which I enjoyed but were to stuffed to get dessert. Local ciders, wines, and cocktails available. When the servers bring your dishes to the table they always identify that the dish is gluten free which I so appreciate as it gives me an extra level of comfort. We also were seated on their rooftop bar which was so nice. Great views and very comfortable. Would definitely visit again!

While their main restaurant didn’t have a table for two available, their sister restaurant right next door that shares a kitchen sure did! Social Hour, was amazing! The food was fabulous, I had the chicken Piccata and saffron risotto and I almost cried when it was gone. Highly recommend. No wait, fun environment and great food.

Food was AMAZING, service was HORRIBLE. Our waitress was rude and seemed annoyed the whole time and as soon as we finished eating the manager said we had to leave because they had other reservations. We wanted to stay and have a drink & dessert.

BEST PASTA I’VE EVER HAD. Gluten free red lentil penne with the vodka sauce was to die for! The Caesar salad was also one of the best Caesar salads I’ve ever had. The risotto balls seemed a little underwhelming to me, taste-wise, but everything else was absolutely delicious!

Great experience eating gluten free here. The GF arancini (fried in a dedicated fryer) was delicious, and our server was very helpful. I was able to sub in GF pasta for the tortellini alla vodka (our server checked that everything in the sauce including the vodka was GF). And, the ultimate test, I felt totally fine after eating there!

I’ve never reviewed any restaurant anywhere. But then, I’ve never been greeted by a staff that was more rude or dismissive than this one. I did not have a good experience. I left before eating, though. So I can’t speak to whether it is celiac friendly. My sue was that I found it unfriendly in general.

We ate dinner at Strada Italiano on a Thursday evening. Reservations could not have been simpler- we did them online a day in advance. The restaurant is well appointed and warmly decorated, and the mood was calm and well run. Our server, Fallon, was a delight. She knowledgably walked us through the restaurant’s ability to prepare and serve gluten free, Celiac- safe food. There is a gluten free fryer- a rarity at most restaurants, even GF safe ones. My husband ate a regular, non-GF meal, and everything at our table was entirely wonderful. The fried calamari, Papa Fred pizza, house-made cannelloni with spinach and ricotta, and (my word) the peanut butter banana creme brûlée comprised one of the best meals we’ve had. It is obvious the kitchen is thoughtfully run, ingredients are carefully selected, and the final dishes are simply a treat. Please go see for yourself and enjoy an impressive and truly delicious meal.

Waiter was very knowledgeable about my allergy and about cross contamination. They replaced tortellini in the dish I ordered with penne and it was cooked perfectly! The vodka sauce was delicious and the half portion was more than enough. You can also get a slice of gf bread for $2 and it was worth it! Highly recommend!

They are very well trained in safely cooking for celiacs, and the arancini were very good, as is the wine list. My entree was not to my tastes (typical Americanized Italian with too much going on in a way that thoroughly confused Italians), but if you like fried food on top of pasta with lots of highly flavored tomato sauce, you'll love it. And lots of Americans dig this, it just isn't for me. They do have a dedicated fryer, which is awesome and much appreciated.

Charming restaurant with casual European farmhouse feel. We enjoyed the locally sourced focaccia bread with dipping oil. Loved the gluten free fried calamari (yep, dedicated fryer), mussels in a white wine sauce and the lamb entree. They offered creme brûlée, chocolate flourless torte and chocolate covered bacon topped with nuts. We had to pass even though they sounds divine. We also had unique cocktails. We will definitely visit the next time we are in town.

The good: A lot of gluten free options on the menu, all were clearly marked, and the staff was knowledgeable. We made a reservation and were seated right away. The bad: the restaurant was small, noisy and cold. The next table was barely foot away, which contributed to the crowded feeling. We wait one hour for our food and it was mediocre. The antipasti was good and gf. The crust on the personal gf pizza was good but the sauce was BLAND and the toppings were over priced. There was a $2 mark up as usual on the gf pizza. My bf's Stromboli was good, but my friends pasta came out cold and was too salty.
