Alfresco's Italian Buffet Delivers Excellent Gluten-Free Meal Sep 01, 2008
reviewer: Barbara from Menifee, Calif, USA

Alfresco's Italian Buffet is a wonderful place to enjoy a family meal. The selections are extensive, the food delicious, the entire restaurant immaculate and staff efficient, attentive and friendly! And the best part is that you can enjoy gluten-free entrees. I phoned owner Kyle ahead of time to ensure that my adult son and I would be able to have a safe meal as we were going to be a party of 11 and this is the best place to accomodate 6 adults and 5 children (under the age of 6) for dinner. Upon our arrival Kyle spent time with us pointing out which selections would be safe for us to eat. The salad bar with all freshly cut on the premises vegetables is extensive, fresh and immaculately presented. There are fish, meat, poulty entrees as well as pizza, vegetables and many side dishes. My son and I had a great variety to choose from. You can imagine our delight and surprise then when Kyle presented to our table platters of freshly cooked quinoa pasta one with grilled vegetables, another with shrimp in garlic sauce. Then came gluten- free pizza which he created especially for us and then came fresh halibut and grilled vegetables! This gracious and thoughtful owner went above and beyond our expectations of a wonderful meal. And all of the food was excellent! Dessert is included in the price of the buffet and includes not only freshly cut delicious fruit for celiacs but a fabulous chocolate fountain. Alfresco's is conveniently located off the 78 and I- 15 freeway. It's worth the trip from anywhere!

Gluten-free dining in Vermont Aug 07, 2008
reviewer: Barbara

This very quaint and lovely restaurant is a definite safe place to dine. Chef and owner Jennifer Lair is very familiar with celiac disease and gluten free meals. We were a party of nine, without reservations, and were all delighted with our individual meals. Prior to being seated I discussed my dietary needs with Jennifer and although she does not offer a specific gf menu she did customize my meal so that I felt like a queen! Most of the entrees are prepared on an outside grill and all are cooked to order, so patience is definitely required. The menu is quite extensive (meat, fish and chicken) and not inexpensive. Homemade ice cream is excellent and a wonderful gf treat. You can bring your own wine as only soft drinks are served and the wait staff is very attentive and accommodating bringing us wine glasses and ice buckets. Jezebels does lunch, dinner and catering and is conveniently located in downtown Wilmington about 20 minutes away from Mount Snow. This is a comfortable and casual restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating.
