Gluten-Free and DeliciousIt's such a pleasure to find such a good restaurant that also caters to gluten-free.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation 2013We had previously had our orders delivered so we knew the food would be wonderful. But the restaurant itself had a very relaxing atmosphere and made the evening even more enjoyable.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable Meal and food wasEnjoyable Meal and food was quite good. Only downside, over the years price have gone up a bit and thought it was a little expensive for a casual family restaurant.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLimited Gluten Free Posta OptionsFirst let me say the seafood was very delicious as we ordered off the Gluten Free menu. The level of service was excellent.
Our only disappointment was that Sambucca only offers Gluten Free Tinkyada elbow pasta with all their dishes. When you order seafood dishes elbow pasta is not only inappropriate but just doesn't taste good with the meal.
The restaurant says that the elbow pasta is the only style offered. Also, they would NOT allow a customer to bring their own pasta to compensate for their short sidedness.
Seriously management needs to rethink their Gluten Free pasta options.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMY late husband and I haveMY late husband and I have been dining at Sambuca off & on for years.
