As someone who is gluten free, I was very pleased to find Itacate! Gluten free options are plainly listed on the menu. I'd go back again and my parent's who are in their 80's enjoyed the food as well!

Great food - everyone in my party enjoyed our dinner. Looking forward to another visit. I would recommend reservations, although we were there on a Friday and they were able to seat us in only a few minutes without reservations.
