Westborough, MA restaurant has fantastic Gluten Free Menu Aug 10, 2017
reviewer: Chrisbroussard from South Riding, VA

It's always a good thing, at least usually, when you sit down and ask for the gluten free menu and the waitress says everything is marked on the main menu. In this case, it was a good thing. I actually sat at the bar and ordered a Ceasar salad, and the gluten free linguine and meatballs. Looks like all their meatballs are gluten free so it wasn't really a special order except for the pasta. After a while, the bartender apologized for the wait on the salad, but she had to send it back because it had croutons on it. Ding Ding — second sign they know what they are doing! It was great that they caught this before serving it to me. The salad was great, and then the pasta showed up and it was perfectly cooked . The sauce and meatballs were fantastic. They had a ton of other gluten free stuff on the menu as well, including many gluten free pizzas. It's always great when you go to a restaurant and the staff knows what they're doing. Tavolino also has a location in Foxborough right next to Gillette Stadium and then a sister restaurant called Siena in Mashpee, MA.

Naked Pizza -- two of my favorite things Apr 07, 2014
reviewer: Chrisbroussard from Virginia

I had never eaten at a Naked Pizza, but I heard they had gluten free pizza crust so I went in to try it out. It's not like any other pizza place I've been in -- it's a lot like a Pinkberry yogurt store as everything is white and modern. The gluten free pizza crust only comes in a 12" version, which is nice, except if you're eating by yourself. But I ordered it anyway just to try it out, and it was fantastic! They do give the disclaimer that there could be cross contamination in the kitchen, but they take every precaution they can -- separate prep area, separate ingredients, separate utensils, and so on.
And the pizza was awesome! Ended up sharing it with someone and didn't tell them it was gluten free until after they had two pieces. They were shocked.

Wonderful gluten free dining at restaurant in Reston, Virginia Jan 29, 2014
reviewer: Chrisbroussard

Gregorio's Trattoria used to be part of the Mamma Lucia's local chain. Mamma Lucia's is still around, but this location, and another in Potomac, MD are now Gregorio's. As I had eaten at Mama Lucia's in the past, I knew they would have gluten-free pasta; but what I didn't know was they had gluten-free ravioli! They also had penne and spaghetti, but I went with the ravioli with a spicy arribiatta sauce. It was cooked perfectly (not too mushy) and the sauce was a good as ever.

A possibility for gluten free dining in Laguna Beach Feb 09, 2013
reviewer: Chrisbroussard

This is a very cool place right in downtown Laguna Beach. While they don't have a gluten free menu, they do have marked a dozen or so items that can be prepared gluten free. Unfortunately for me, I ordered a steak salad, and they brought it out with croutons. But after sending it back and explaining, they quickly brought out a new one and everything was fine. Made me wonder a little about how knowledgable they really were about preparations, but I didn't have a problem. The wine list was great, too. Just be extra vigilant when ordering here -- and check your food when you receive it. It would probably help to talk with the chef or manager before ordering, too.

Gluten free at restaurant in Fashion Island Newport Beach CA Feb 09, 2013
reviewer: Chrisbroussard

I was meeting a doctor that specializes in alternative medicine and her husband for dinner in Newport Beach and they suggested meeting at Flemings. I was happy because I knew they had a gluten free menu. When we sat down and I asked for the gluten free menu, the doctor was surprised, and thrilled to learn that they had a gluten free menu! Once the menu request was made, the manager came over to personally deliver the menu and let us know that the staff was all trained on how to handle and prepare our food and he was personally familiar with it because his mother had Celiac. The dinner was great, and the service was impeccable!
