Not only are there gluten free options, the shrimp scampi was the tastiest, freshest I have had in my life. The chef performs a labor of love.... the balsamic vinagreta for salad ranks amongst the best I have had, I have had dozens. Treat yourself!!

Yes! We have been taking my son there since he was an infant. Held his baptism party there and it’s his favorite place to have macaroni and dessert.
