Gluten Free/North End/Inexpensive - Possible?

My sister's boyfriend is in town from Las Vegas and really wants to have dinner in the North End on Monday 3/29. We will be meeting them there around 6:30pm. My sister has a gluten allergy and, while it's not mandatory, we would love to find a restaurant with GF pasta. I know Marco has some GF offerings, and we will go here if it it the only choice, but I was hoping to find something a bit less pricey. Any suggestions? I know there are some great choices outside of the NE (Erbaluce, Burton's Grill, etc), but with the way everyone's schedule worked out, we are only looking for options in this area.

    Having worked for years in the North End, I would never recommend dining in the North End, but, that being as it may, if you are going to eat in the North End, I suggest you call Jose Duarte at Taranta. He is the owner, and has put a lot of his restaurant's food emphasis on organic and fresh food cooking. If he doesn't already have gluten- free pasta, I'm sure he will get some for you. (And you might want to ask him for some rice crackers to have instead of bread as well.) Carmen might be another alternative, but I'm not sure of that. I hope that helps.

    1. Nebo ( has a gluten-free menu. I've never eaten there but it gets pretty good reviews.
