|The lovely box- the best part- it's not styrofoam! It's some kind of paper product.|
|YUM! The amazing salad- even stayed nice on the drive! LARGE helpings of dressing too!|
As I was waiting on the bar I questioned the bartender about gluten free. She flagged over the manager who was more knowledgeable than the layperson on gluten free. He told me all the items he could make gluten free and I was very surprised. After talking some more he grabbed my take out menu and offered to circle all the items that were or could be made gluten free. I let him and I am happy to say many items are circled. I will offer the disclaimer he did- not all three DePalma's have the same menu, so I will have to ask at each location. However, at the Timothy Road location all the salads are or can be made GF. The chicken scaloppini can be made GF if you ask, grilled pork dish is GF, grilled steak is GF, and chili glazed salmon. He said the stuffed mushrooms are gluten free, but I would double-check if ordering since there are meatballs in it. The Mozzarella and Pomodori salad is also GF. No it's not a lot, but it is more than you can have at most italian restaurants. The manager also offered to try to alter anything on the menu if I knew what needed to be changed and if it was possible. I am grateful for those restaurants that are open to those of us with dietary restrictions and who are willing to meet us half way!
I will definitely be returning and I encourage everyone to go there. Support those businesses that support our dietary needs!
