A beautiful old fashion Italian. Enormous menu minestrone and squid followed by seafood spaghetti and wife had duck in honey and red wine washed down with pecorino wine. In deed a treat as we don’t have anything near this quality in our area.

yes... they're limited to pasta options but there are gluten free choices. you'd be best off asking a waiter for a specific walk through on what is gluten free on the menu...
