Exciting news- Gluten free Pasta in South Boston

I will be visiting Salvatore's, by the South Boston Waterfront, for dinner with some friends in the near future. So I called ahead (a practice I highly recommend) to make sure they can accommodate my dietary requests and guarantee a gluten free meal. I never expect much when I make these calls. I figure lowering my hopes will alleviate the disappointment. Well much to my surprise, not only to they accommodate people with Celiac Disease, but they also keep gluten free pasta on hand! I cannot wait to try this restaurant. I will let you all know how it goes! Stay tuned....

So that blog was back in the fall. I tried Salvatore's. It was good, but a bit of a let down. They do in fact carry GF pasta so that's all good. I did not order it, however.  I had a craving for haddock. The reason I was disappointed: they made it all sound so great on the phone, but I did not feel as comfortable when I was there. Hard to explain, but I just didn't get the warm and fuzzy. They were all about gluten free this and gluten free that on the phone, but in person it was if the server was not even paying attention, nor did he seem aware of the restrictions the manager had explained to him 5 minutes prior... and attention to detail is something we celiacs take very seriously. Right?

So I would not discourage you from trying it, just don't expect a gluten free paradise. I hope you have a better experience than I did.
