Disappointment at Facci,

Facci is a pricey Italian restaurant just south of Columbia, MD that offers five Gluten Free entrees priced from $13 (Cheese Ravioli) to $24 (Atlantic Salmon). Most of these GF dishes come with a choice of Gluten Free pasta or vegetable medley.

I had the Pollo alla Toscana for 17 bucks. For that price, I was expecting some flavor, but I was greatly disappointed. The dish was as bland as hospital food, despite ingredients such as "button mushrooms, wood-fired red peppers, pine nuts, and rice wine sauce," to say nothing of the vegetable medley underneath. The two chicken breasts were exactly the same size and shape, suggesting that they had come from a factory. In addition to being flavorless, the chicken was also grainy in texture, hinting that it had been frozen.

My dinner companion's non-GF meal was similarly bland and equally expensive, so I conclude that the problem is with the kitchen as a whole, not merely with their specific handling of GF dishes.

I should mention that the dining area is so dark that my companion and I had a very hard time reading our menus. We also found it odd and unsettling that the music in the dining room was the same techno-club dance music that was playing in the bar.

I've heard great things about Facci Happy Hours from acquaintances and co-workers, so if I ever go back, it will be for that. It won't be for lunch or dinner.

I'm giving them 2 Palms for at least having some Gluten Free entrees on the menu.

Great pizza and italian food. Pizzas are made on Still Riding brand pizza crusts. There is a gluten free section on the regular menu. The wait staff and management was very accomadating and made recommendations for dessert, too! I've been 3 times and each time was great.
