    New chef - way fewer options and I returned my dish and did not order anything else because of how gross it tasted. Salad and drinks were good but I would not go back for dinner.

    I am only giving three stars for now. They just went from 95% gluten free to very limited. However, after Justin took the time to speak with us, we are hoping to give five stars upon return. He explained that the new menu is a work in progress, and that many things can still be ordered gf. Please bring back gf bread too! Thanks to Justin, we shall return.

    Be careful about the food you are served. i got a cruton hidden in my Cesar salad. They do have GF pasta and pizza, but the pizza crust sucks. You would be better off with Domino's. If I go back, I will only order GF pasta dishes, and skip the bad pizza.

    After years of enjoying such an awesome restaurant I am sad to say that they made the unfortunate choice to make their menu less GF friendly. They updated their menu as of today and chose to eliminate a significant amount of their gf options. This was my favorite , go to, celiac friendly restaurant and now they have decided to add wheat to their fettuccine Alfredo rather than continue to not include it. So so disappointing. Can't figure out why they would go backwards in their GFAF progress. I would not recommend eating here anymore unless you want pizza.

    The food was great- and they have Many Gf options and pasta. Three stars is only because while their menu was marked with what WASNT gf, it was actually printed incorrectly... like it said their meatballs could be made GF. Luckily our waitress was helpful and answered my questions, and went and asked the kitchen what she didn't know. I got chicken parm and it was good!

    Many gluten-free options on the menu and a knowledgeable staff. They also carry Omission, a very good gluten-free beer.

    Really delicious food. I couldn't even tell that the pasta was gluten free. They even brought me gluten free bread! And their dessert menu had a few gluten free options

    Good options and great food. They have GF pizza but won't make it for Celiacs which says a lot about their knowledge and attention to food prep and cross contamination (they are outstanding and very attentive).

    Excellent! Drove up from Boston and it was definitely worth it. Best gluten free menu I have come across! The chicken Milanese was incredible! As were the polenta fries and stuffed mushrooms! I even had a piece of gluten free strawberry shortcake that was yummy. My new favorite place to eat in New England!

    The food is consistently good, and the staff is aware of what it means to have Celiac and takes precautions against cross-contamination. I've eaten here several times and I'm always happy with the food and experience.

    Had a wonderful dinner here with my Celiac and allergy burdened wife. Waitress very knowledgable about ingredients. Food was delicious. Was our favorite dinner in Portsmouth on our trip.

    This place is amazing!! The crab cakes, arancini, veal piccata and pesto chicken all were excellent and rave worthy. On top of that the atmosphere is great. If you're in the area do yourself a favor and stop by.

    Everything was delicious. My husband had the steak with extra spinach because the Parmesan fries were not gluten(but they told us) and I had the seafood fra Diavlo with gluten free pasta. It was all great!

    Good gluten free pasta with tasty sauce. We had gluten free calamari from the dedicated fryer to start, and I had a pasta primavera for dinner. The chocolate almond cake made a good dessert to go, and included a dense almond layer, a chocolate mousse layer, and a ganache layer.

    Most important! The owner's wife is a Celiac. Everyone here understands! Lots of variety. They advertise 70% GF and I believe that is accurate. Delicious. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that this newly remodeled restaurant is very, very noisy. Still worth it!
