    GF fried calamari is excellent. Pay the $2 for the GF bread (served with oil & vinegar & herbs). Lots of GF options - pizza, pasta, entrees. We had excellent service.

    Very small menu, shared fryer so not celiac safe, GF pasta was over cooked with watery sauce in a very small bowl, really overpriced for quality of food.

    This place was amazing! Service was great and the food was fantastic. I had fried calimari, risotto balls and a pork chop with mashed potatoes. All fabulous! Would definitely go back.

    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.

    Very very very good Italian food! The gluten free ARANCINI (Breaded, Fried Mozzarella & Risotto Balls), bread, and the gf pasta in a creamy tomato basil vodka sauce over fresh spinach were all amazing.

    Very yummy. We ordered take out. The gluten free bread and pasta was fantastic. The pizza, however, wasn't very good- for gluten free or regular. But it was very celiac friendly, because the owner's wife is celiac.

    Stayed for the night in Asheville and we went to Strada. Very accommodating for celiac!! Wait staff were very knowledgeable and polite. Food was great. I got the GF chicken Parm which came with GF noodles and a GF breading in the chicken. I recommend this place. Gluten free bread was amazing!!

    Amazing gf pizza! Definitely get the bread if they have it. It's from a local gf bakery called "Eat more bread" and was wonderful!

    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.

    They have a nice range of options even desserts! It was all pretty good. The cannoli cheesecake is not too sweet and has a strong orange flavor, I enjoyed it but I don't think everyone would.

    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.
