Monday night I went out to Mamma Lucia's in Reston with some girlfriends. I'm happy to report that it was a fabulous experience! They have an extensive menu of delicious offerings. And everything is clearly labeled for dietary restrictions. So you don't even have to rely on any guesswork or servers asking the kitchen. Just look for the little GF on the menu. There are gluten free pizzas and tons of gluten free pastas. They even have gluten free desserts!
I got the penne vodka. Although, the pancetta was a little salty, the pasta was great. We decided to linger for awhile after dinner over some dessert and cappuccino. The cappuccino had the perfect amount of foam and was served with a sprinkling of cinnamon on top. The chocolate hazelnut cake melted in your mouth and even my girlfriends could not tell that it was gluten free. So if you're looking for a nicer Italian dining experience, I highly recommend checking out Mamma Lucia's.
