Quick help... going with family for dinner tonight and hoping to avoid weinstein and gastinko's which is the only place my sister claims she can get gluten free pasta. Any other options with 'no-gluten' friendly menus?

thanks!!

    I know for sure restaurant Lombardi has gluten free pasta. I was there with my wife and some friends on Friday night and one of the women at our table ordered gluten free pasta.

        it's my favorite BYOW place on duluth. It's not a fine dining place but they have fine dinning dishes on top of the popular BYOW place I'd say. I always ask for the giant pork chop with fettuccine Alfredo. Their see food selection is also very good, shrimps, calamari, etc. My wife says their meat sauce has a unique taste that she never had anywhere else ever. I'm not a big fan of meat sauce but like their marinara sauce alot. Above everything it's how the staff make us feel like royalty. The owner is a funny clown. My wife and I are regulars and never had bad service from them. If we had a plate that wasn't to our liking. It was never a problem to fix the issue. Yes I'm bias it's my favorite place.

      Can't vouch for the food as I have never been but I believe that Basi Restaurant offers gluten free options.

      Its located on Shamrock st near St Denis / Jean Talon

        Ottavio. My wife went to the one in Laval and they were very serious about their gluten free option. They even had separate parmesan and cutlery just in case of cross contamination. As for the food, she said it was pretty good.

          I've been to Ottavio in Laval a few years back. It was very good back then. Out of our way but if in the area again will stop for a meal with my wife.

          OliverB - curious to know where you went for gluten-free pasta and how it was.

            Sorry for the late response... I was dragged out to the first place (W&G) despite all my best efforts and it was truly awful. I had some kind of risotto and a seafood starter that tasted like it came from a frozen supermarket box, which it probably did. That place is a factory, not a kitchen. Everything about it was gross. I'll try Lombardi next time if I have my say.
