In Italian, the word “senza” means without. Senza Gluten is an Italian restaurant in the Village that is completely gluten free. This restaurant is a great concept because Italian food, with its myriad of pasta dishes, is often hard to find gluten free. It is nice for people with celiac disease and those with gluten sensitivity or intolerance to have a night out senza worry.
For starters, we had cauliflower parmesan, cauliflower breaded with cheese and tomato sauce. A nice way to eat cauliflower.
My friend ordered a Cesare, or Caesar salad.
My entree was a vegetable lasagna, so the restaurant is vegetarian friendly as well.
My friend got the risotto ai funghi, risotto with mushroom, parmesan and truffle oil.
Finally, one is lucky to find a gluten-free entree at the average restaurant, let alone a dessert. Here, there are a number to choose from of Italian classics like tiramisu and panna cotta as well as a chocolate torte and biscotti.
One good thing to keep in mind while dining here is that Senza Gluten is cash and American Express only, so come prepared.
