I came here the very first night I was going fully gluten free after learning of my diagnosis, so I was a bit nervous. They immediately put me at ease with their clear knowledge and number of gluten free options. I got the chicken parm, which also came with gluten free pasta and was delicious. They also, without my asking, offered me a gluten free roll since they typically provide free bread to guests (which I appreciated since I used to take full advantage of free bread). The manager also came out to explain their methods and clarify that the chicken parm would still be gluten free even though it would “look like there’s real breadcrumbs on it.” Very accommodating and made me free very safe!

Edit: I’ve since gotten delivery multiple times and not only haven’t gotten sick but can also confirm the meal is always clearly marked with an allergy sticker. I’ve still only eaten the chicken parm but it’s just so good I can’t resist getting it every time!

Manager came out to talk about the precautions taken and the waitress was very kind, patient, and understanding of the importance of having a GF pizza for us.

I’ve been coming to Chateau for years. It’s not fine dining. It’s red sauce Italian comfort food. Christenings, funerals, birthdays, this is where you go. The bread and toasted ravs are no longer an option for me, but I’ve had good experiences with their gluten free options. Takeout has been clearly labeled as gluten free / allergy. In the restaurant, a manager came over to explain that he would oversee the meal and that my chicken parm used gluten free breadcrumbs. These could be left off as well. Food was good and hit the spot. My meal had a cover over it with a label (assume it indicated allergy) and was opened once it was placed in front of me. No crumbs jumping into my dish from my gluten eating kids. They seem to have a good system in place and take this seriously.

I acknowledge that they have a gf pizza on their menu. And you can always order a salad. But the gf pizza was a soggy, floppy mess that only barely qualified as edible. It sustained life, but it did not rise even to the level of a decent dish.

Had a pretty large gluten free menu. Staff was really knowledgeable about how the dish would be made gluten free. Got the gluten free chicken parm and the roasted wings. Both were great.

This was a great experience for all of my family especially my son who has celiac. Gluten free mac and cheese made his day as did the complimentary GF bread. The rest of us also thought the traditional menu items were delicious!

When I told the waitress that I have a gluten allergy (celiac), they sent over a manager. They evidently do this for all allergies. There was a GF roll, and delicious GF chicken parm (no breading) with GF penne. Delicious sauce too - you can see why this place is a Boston institution. Very old world Boston Italian. And best of all - no gluten reaction!

Pretty decent selection of GF foods. I have several other food allergies as well and waitress brought the manager over to discuss my allergies. Manager spoke to the chef directly. No problems accommodating. Food was just okay but totally appreciate the extra care to make sure we were safe. I would go back again.

This place is fantastic! I enjoyed the rolls, and when the server saw the GF menu, she was quick to bring over the manager. They assured me that they use separate utensils, cookware, everything in the back. My food even came out covered with another plate to ensure no contamination.

Was here visiting from Rochester for the Needham Soccer Tournament and absolutely loved my GF sautéed broccoli and chicken pasta. Service was great and I got a bonus of a nice GF roll as I watched my wife and kids destroy 2 baskets of Italian bread. They loved their meals too!!

AMAZING! Several Options. A little bland, but most chefs are scared when you list allergies. They use Heartland GF Pasta products. The meal comes out with server (in leu of manager) but has another plate on top with a purple sticker! BRILLIANT! I now have a weekly staple in my dinners!

I ordered the gluten free chicken parm. Usually it comes breaded with gluten free bread crumbs but all I got was a boiled piece of chicken with a handful of breadcrumbs thrown on top that were all soggy and mush. There were also some penne in my pasta that had lines on them while the rest did not. I asked the waitress about this and she brought it back to the kitchen and the manager went in the kitchen and was yelling and then came back with a new plate and apologized. Not careful at all about food allergies

I am not sure what their protocols are but they barely care about their customers as it is, never mind those with allergies.

The pasta and sauce is bland and watery. You might as well make it at home, because there is literally no flavor.

Their options are weak, and they are not at all knowledgeable. Go somewhere else.

The manager took my daughters order and delivered each item himself.

This is a family style italian restaurant, nothing fancy.

We attended a sports banquet here and the staff was very helpful to the event organizer in offering up GF kid friendly options.

This was a favorite place to eat before I was diagnosed with Celiac, and it continues to be a favorite. They recently introduced a new menu with all the options for gluten free marked with a symbol. Shortly after ordering, the manager came over to chat about our food. They reportedly have a separate prep area for gluten free meals, and it was served separately. The Sausage Abruzzi with GF penne was amazing! I can't wait to try their GF Chicken Parmesan (with GF breading) next time.
