A good spot if you're looking for a good meal--Italian or "continental"--in an upscale setting on a quiet block (E. 74th St. off Lex). Prices are reasonable, service was excellent, and tables are spaced apart nicely enough so you can hear yourself and your friends...More

Sorry I do not recall if they did. If you have a dietary restriction you should call the restaurant directly. They seemed very accommodating if possible.

I would call the restaurant and talk to the owner to be on the safe side. He will probably prepare a special dish for you if you let him know when you will be dining there.
