Since we had had a wonderful meal at AL Boccalino's when it was on Yesler near Pioneer Best Western Hotel, we were looking forward to a similar experience. This was an odd experience. First an older man, maybe AL Boccalino?, sat at a large table...More

We had a poor experience at their cooking class. I would not recommend attending. The food was scant and not high quality. For a $35 per person plus a mandatory 20% gratiuity - you should spending you time elsewhere.

You can always call and asked. However I don't think they would have gluten free. I say this because I tried buying and cooking gluten free pasta before and the texture is not even close to the regular pasta.
