Dined with a friend for lunch. Danny was a great server, made recommendations that were spot on. The owner stopped by the table and very personable. The ravioli and Vodka Penne Pasta are wonderful. The creme brulee cheesecake is to die for!

As long as you advise the waiter and request to speak with the chef to ensure he knows of your allergy, I am certain they will accommodate your need.

I would also suggest calling the restaurant. Going out for dinner on any major holiday is iffy unless you know their schedule and I don't. Have a happy holiday!
