Dietary Needs near Franklin Square

I'm planning on going to Franklin Square on 7/25 (Saturday) and need to find a restaurant somewhat close by if possible for dinner. My wife has a food intolerance (Candida) and therefore any place that is good with GF foods is ideal. It will be 4 adults and a 2 yr old. We are trying to find something not too pricey ($10 apps; $15-$20 entrees) if possible. We are trying to stay away from Mexican/Spanish.
yeah i look at that blog alot. stephen starr could be a strong possibility. let me know if there are any other reasonable spots to go that could cater to a special diet.
also, lemme clarify about location. it would be preferrable if it was close to FS, but anywhere in the philly area will be fine, as long as there is somewhat decent parking.
I second Giorgio on Pine, especially for the price and if you want to keep it reasonable. For some reason, even when plan to go light at Starr restaurants, always seem to have a bit of sticker shock!
The chef at Giorgio has really seemed to come into his own over the last year. Having said that, the two lesser dishes I had last year were the risotto and lingine with shrimp but i suspect that they have worked out the kinks and is better.(I know the owner and know he was going to take off if didn't get it right). I have been there many times recently, just haven't tried these two lately.
