The gnocchi is the only thing on the menu that is gluten free (be careful, it can also be normal). It was tasty; however, it would be nice to have some choices.

I’m updating my review four hours later. Either they gave me regular pasta (it tasted too good) or they have some serious cross contamination issues. I’ve been glutened.

This little gem was attached to the hotel we stayed in so the convenient was a plus. I had the GF gnocchi, you do have to specify. The waiter and staff was knowledgeable of what can be made with GF penne pasta. The deli case even have 3 different GF italian cookies. The staff pulled the book that listed all ingredients. After asking to change gloves to grab a pignoli and macaroon she offer to get them from the back, the untouched. So thoughtful..

Adding my voice to the other reviews — the gluten free gnocchi is amazing! They also have a gluten free penne that they can substitute in some other dishes. Other guests (who aren’t gluten intolerant) also enjoyed it. Don’t be thrown off by the location (in a hotel). The food is top notch!

so so yummy! you need to get the gf gnocchi it tastes delicious and has a lovely ricotta topping :) they also have gf penne pasta if you would prefer that instead of gnocchi. the server was very knowledgeable and made sure to put “severe allergy” for the kitchen to know when preparing the meal. they informed me that the kitchen will make it in a separate area with different pots and utensils :) they brought out my gf meal before my friends meal with gluten. they took all the precautions and i am very very sensitive to gluten and the smallest bit of cross contamination and never got sick! definitely recommend :)

They said the only dish that was truly gluten free was the gnocchi. Since I do not go for Italian to eat that, I asked if there were any other options. She said no. I had to force her to see if they has gluten free pasta. I had penne with Bolognese sauce. It was good but they were skimpy with the sauce. They told me there may be cross contamination with that dish.

Pizza was said to be gluten free although they only had one serving of dough remaining!?! The next day we realized it was NOT gluten free..... I wouldn’t go back.

Delicious GF-safe food (The ONLY place I haven't had an adverse reaction in a week of eating out in OC, MD!). Had the Burrata Antipasto, followed by the Pesto Avellinesi Primi Piatti. They say they always have 1 GF pasta choice that can sub into any of the GF-possible pasta dishes. My whole family was thrilled with their dinners. It's very likely celiac friendly (but I'm not celiac so I can't say for sure).
