Food was excellent from Caesar Salad, Bread with seasoned olive oil, bruschetta, and entrees. Reasonable pricing and full bar. I walked in without a reservation ( I would definitely suggest), luckily got the last available table. Restaurant was packed by 7pm. Would definitely return.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure. I know they have items on their menu that are gluten free, such as chicken etc, but I would recommend giving them a call to be sure.

They do not have a private party room. They have discrete areas. But depending on the number you could rent the whole restaurant.
