One of the best waiters we have ever had. Great restaurant for a big group. They have a basement area and rooftop area. Food was phenomenal. We had 8 dishes and all were excellent.

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

I'm not sure, as no one in our group asked that question. I'd call ahead & ask.
Do you have gluten-free options?
