With (hopefully) the worst behind us, it’s time to regroup and refocus on the upcoming year. As a fresh start for many, dietary and fitness goals are often top on the list. And, going gluten free in Manchester, NH, has never been easier than now!

Believe it or not, making the decision to incorporate less or eliminate all gluten from your diet isn’t as painful as some think. Even as authentic Italian chefs, we offer various gluten free options that leave you just as satisfied as lasagna accompanied by freshly baked white bread.


Cooked to order

If you’re going gluten free in Manchester, NH, and looking for a restaurant that accommodates, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, don’t be afraid to ask what precautions are taken to ensure your meal is truly free of all gluten. A restaurant that cooks to order is always the best choice. By doing so, the chefs are awarded the opportunity to change kitchen utensils, bowls, and even workspaces to ensure a clean palate.

Often, kitchens will prepare “gluten free” meals but use the same cutting boards or mixing bowls that prepared a meal containing gluten. From changing the oil to sanitizing the prep space, every detail matters.

A vast selection of flours

Gluten is found in several varieties of flour. So, when craving an authentic Italian meal, choosing a restaurant with various options regarding the flour used is a must. While the Italian community has been quick to adjust to dietary sensitivities, they’ve embraced this reality and experimented. For years, Italian chefs have incorporated alternative means with corn, chestnuts, and chickpeas to appease those with a gluten allergy or sensitivity.

With decades of experience, adjusting a menu to gluten free is anything but new for our chefs.
