We arrived short of time before a show at the Hexagon. It was a busy evening for the restaurant but they made space for us and prepared delicious meals for us quickly. Thank you for being so accommodating- our meals were perfect.

Yes, there are gluten-free options and most other dishes can be adjusted to be gluten-free if not already. We usually have a couple of gluten-free pastas to substitute in the non gluten-free pastas that we make.
