Found it while doing a basic online search for a new gluten free place .... Decided to go the same day for a take-out order. My kids both have Celiac Disease and this place advertised gf empanadas! Something I've tried to perfect for years without success. My kids loved them!! We also tried the gf donuts -- also a success with the kids! Will definitely be back to try other items. In the meantime, go try them out! Lovely husband and wife couple will greet you!

All GF restaurant. They have wonderful croissants that taste like the real thing. I hadn’t had one since my celiac diagnosis 4 years ago. It was such a treat! The pizza and empanadas are great, too. Highly recommend this place.

I should have called ahead! Was SO excited for an empanada but they didn’t have any for lunch today. Most baked goods were gone…someone bought them out! Anyway, I opted for pasta with tomato sauce. It could have used some salt and about 50% more sauce but was still very good! I bought a loaf of bread (nearly $20 but worth it!) that’s not on the menu yet but hoping maybe some sandwiches will be coming soon! The restaurant is clean and welcoming, yet hard to find and the family that owns it is wonderful. They’re still a newer establishment so hopefully there are good things to come! Can’t wait to go back for an empanada!!

Ps. Call ahead or order online if taking food to go. Everything is made to order!

This place is wonderful and I wish we lived closer so we could come more often. The food is great! we tried empanadas, pasta bolognese, flan, tres leches, cinnamon rolls, cookies, and we could continue trying but were very full. The menu is wonderful for kids (and adults), they have pasta, pizza, burgers, desserts. Highly recommend.

Val’s is a must go if you’re in the Broward county - palm beach county area. She had amazing lunch, and even better pastries! The croissants are amazing and her tres leches and flan are even better. Val herself has celiac and was very kind to me. She offered me samples of almost everything she had and we traded celiac stories. I will definitely be coming back!

This place is amazing! Admittedly, the first time I went there, I was hesitant to order due to the “hole in the wall” ambiance. I ended up leaving but going back a few weeks later after seeing all the positive reviews. We ordered the GF pizza with vegan cheese, the homemade gnocchi with bolognese, the beef and pork empanadas, and the croissants. EVERYTHING WAS EXCEPTIONAL!! My son and I were literally speechless as we ate. Each of the dishes was obviously homemade and cooked to order. We were sooo pleasantly surprised by this little place. The restaurant is run by Valentina (Val) and her amazing family. They are so incredibly nice and Val is a truly gifted GF chef and baker. You must try this time place!

Came in an hour before closing and had the pizza, pasta, as well as a couple of guava pastries and a croissant. Everything was divine and I will be making the 30 minute drive at least once a week.

100% GF! Diverse menu, food was really good. Just opened less than a month ago, they are learning how to handle lots of customers at once from Facebook Ad. Please be patient, they are worth it!

Amazing new family run gluten free restaurant! Owner is celiac so everything is GF. Bread is made fresh daily. Her burger, fries, Shepard’s pie, homemade gnocci with bolognese sauce, and croissants are yummy (things I’ve had so far). I’m excited to try empanadas next!

This restaurant is brand new and a dream for anyone who eats gf. Everything is 100% gluten free, the restaurant is owned by this family and the wife has Celiac Disease so she understands how important it is that there’s no cross contamination!
