    1. There are some gluten free options in the menu right now ,but no pasta yet... mussels in a white sauce without flour,the red or fradiavolo sauce are safe...salads are safe... marsala without flour...the tenderloin is safe...the grilled fish is safe... without potato cake...you can usually ask your server for a gluten free dish and I am positive they can work something out for you... pasta wise...I will ask the owners and chef to see what the future can offer...
