Of Scelfo’s 3 great restaurants, this one has the second most GF options. Almost every pasta dish and many of the small plates can be made GF. Before going GF, I used to love their small pizzas and bread plate... I do wish they had GF replacements for those! I miss the squid ink bread. Staff is knowledgeable, and there is dedicated kitchen space. I love this restaurant and am glad it’s still safe to eat here! On the pricey side, though. Every time I go here, I seem to spend about $100, even if I don’t order oysters.
Service was great! I had gluten free pasta and lots of the small plates. I shared with someone who was not gluten free and they put some things on the side. The wine was great too.
The food was sooo yummy. We started off with oysters and vodka cocktails and then I had the gluten free tomato leaf and mussel pasta. Our waitress was super friendly and understanding and took the time to walk through what I could eat off the menu. She said that all but one of the pastas could be made gluten free. I made sure to ask about separate water and she it was cooked separate.
This pasta....was amazing. So good. The flavor was unreal. I unfortunately started feeling glutened at the end of my meal...maybe there was big cross contamination or something but I definitely felt it. I’m so sad that dish was amazing!!
This was my first time out dining since my celiac diagnosis. I found this restaurant on Zagats top ten list. It lived up to it. Staff was very friendly and gave us to the waitress that also has celiac. She guided us through the menu, patiently answered my questions and genuinely cared for our well being and enjoyment. We shared oysters, the Chopped Tuna Crudo was fabulous, the Emma casarecci pasta and a leche type ice cream desserts. The GF bread was like cornbread. Yummy but I was hoping for a popover type of bread—maybe that’s hard to make GF?. It was pricey, especially the drinks but well worth it when you don’t get out much. Highly recommend!
