Happy 70th Birthday La Cantina
Every now and again we seek some good Italian food. This is challenging when you have to eat Gluten-Free as many fine Italian restaurants don't have much to offer.
La Cantina in Framingham does offer a good selection of Gluten-Free foods, include a tasty Gluten-Free Pizza that my daughter loves to eat every time we eat in or use their take out. It's a 10' Gluten-Free thin Crust pizza, a perfect size for one person. When my daughter orders it, we have some leftovers for her to enjoy another time.
My daughter is also into Mac & Cheese. Do you know of a 5-year-old doesn't want to eat that every day? At La Cantina, a good alternative is the Alfredo Gluten-Free penne. She tells me at its the best Mac & Cheese treat when she eats out. She likes it that she has a choice between yummy Pizza and Mac & Cheese.
Other dishes that can be made Gluten-free include Chopped Sirloin, Veal Cacciatore, Veal Saltimbocca, Baked Penne Parmigiana, Penne Oil Garlic & Broccoli, Pasta Deyve, Grill Chicken Tenders, Roast half Chicken, Seafood Saute, Risotto con Frutti di Mare,
Today is the 70th birthday of La Cantina. It opened its doors back in 1946. Back then, Waverly Street was a busy Italian district with restaurants and grocery stores. They have a special rollback menu for today, unfortunately, they are not offering any gluten-free dishes.
Check out the menu that I posted on July 22, 2008. The day after our first visit to La Cantina.
La Cantina is located at 911 Waverly Street in Framingham Massachusetts. You can reach them at (508) 879-7874.
