I specifically came here because they have a gluten free menu and was intrigued by the "Spaghettini" on the menu. Most restaurants don't even bother to serve up gluten free spaghetti so I was like "YES". We were seated by the window overlooking 5th ave. The restaurant was not busy (only 4 tables present).
