My daughter is celiac and extremely sensitive. We weren't planning on buying food for her, but the owner was very knowledgeable about celiac. He prepared a special cut of meat just for her along with sealed gf bread. No problems. There is also gf pasta, although we didn't try it.

I spoke to the owner of this Italian Market. He was extremely accommodating and helpful. They have many gluten free pasta options as well as 2 dessert options! They also made an off-menu entree for my husband who was on an elimination diet for other health related issues.

Overall, very helpful staff and yummy food plus gluten free dessert! Yay!

This was hands down the best Italian on the island and the owner Vinnie is the sweetest most accommodating man! We got take out 3 times while on vacation! All the pasta dishes are wonderful however I will warn you that the pizza was not “edible” to me (sorry Vinnie... I still love you!). I think maybe it was a store bought crust?But I really appreciate the effort of this restaurant to offer GF dishes. I would just avoid the pizza but there is a large menu of gf pasta dishes to choose from! And don’t forget the desserts!!!! I would give this place 10 stars if I could for variety and customer service!

I went here due to the fact that I found a GF review of this establishment. I must say that I am disappointed. When we arrived, we inquired about the process for their GF pizzas. To their credit, the owner/operators immediately asked if I was celiac- which is a yes- and advised me not to order anything.

You see, they make their own dough on site, and they are concerned about flour dispersal in the air (it's a TINY establishment). Given the frequent batches made, they pretty much assured me that everything would have a fine coating of gluten.

This place has knowledgeable staff, but is only OK if you're a casual GF diner. For the staff knowledge, I am rating this a 3. For fellow Celiacs in the area, I recommend Vertoris, who have yet to gluten me.
