Great lunch with friends on patio. Cioppino was terrific? Crusty loaf of bread delicious. Easy access on 2nd street. A bit spendy, but worth it for special occasions. Be sure to make reservations.....lunch or dinner.

I don't recall if they had gluten free, but we ate with our son who has multiple food allergies and they were great about working with him to find something safe to eat.
