As time goes on, Celiac awareness is rising. The best part: this includes restaurants. Here are a few places with gluten-free menus I've tried:

1. Uno's Pizzeria: Their only gluten-free specific item is their gluten-free pizza. I have tried it at three different Uno's, and at all places, I've been pleasantly surprised. Mind you, it is not the BEST GF pizza I've tasted, but I really like it. The crust is thin and flakey, and the sauce is really good. They have a separate GF menu which is very helpful. My picks- pepperoni pizza and Caesar salad

2. PF Changs: I.LOVE.PF.CHANGS. Enough said. Their food is always delicious, and their separate GF menu is amazing. My picks- Cha.ngs spicy chicken or chicken fried rice.

3. Bertucci's: Not the best GF menu. I mean, the rolls at the table are already torture. Although they do have a separate menu, they do not offer GF pasta, which would be nice considering it is an Italian restaurant. There is nothing really worth mentioning on the menu. Just chicken, steak, etc. My pick-Something not on the menu that I asked for- chicken parmesan (with grilled chicken, of course)

4. Maggiano's: By far, my favorite. They offer GF pasta on every pasta dish they make. 3 of the many times I have gone, the chef personally came to my table, discussed my gluten allergy, and gave me his card. He even made my previous favorite, the fried mozzarella, with corn meal. I hardly noticed a difference! My picks- fried mozzarella and the pesto chicken pasta. SO GOOD

Until next time....
