Built near a cliffside, the space this restaurant occupies was first an ancient Etruscan cave. We arrived here for a very late lunch, around 2:40. They typically close between 3-7 pm, so we begged them to stay and feed us! They were a bit grouchy about this, to be honest. We told them we'd be quick, so we quickly ordered pastas all around the table, with some of us opting for the gluten free pasta. Nothing was marked GF on the menu...there was just a notation about the availability of gluten free pasta. Our server said that, of course, their meat entrees were gluten free as well. I ordered an unusual pasta dish because it was something I'd never seen on a menu....fusilli with salmon, lemon, and crushed pistachios. It was very good, although there were just little tiny pieces of salmon, not what I was expecting. One of my gluten free companions did not like her gluten free pasta with shaved truffles, as it did not have any sauce...just pasta with shaved truffles and a bit of parmesan. Apparently the sauce they typically serve with this dish (which another one of our traveling companions ordered, non-GF) has gluten (flour?) in it, so they leave that off if ordering it gluten free. Upon request, they managed to prepare some sort of sauce for my GF friend to add to give her pasta a bit more flavor. I can't rave about this restaurant, but if we had come earlier and had a bit more time to order and try out a variety of different entrees, etc., I'm sure it would have been a better experience. They have pizza, but it is not available gluten free.
