Erica's Ristorante

Spaghetti and Meatballs from the Kid's Menu

In December, we visited Erica's Ristorante in Ashland, Massachusetts. We have visited here before and knew that they had some Gluten Free options for my daughter. We wanted to make sure that my daughter had a safe and enjoyable dining experience. We knew that Erica's was likely to have some options that she would be able to enjoy without the worry of getting sick.

I informed the server about my daughter's gluten-free allergy, and the waiter was able to determine whether or not anything we wanted to order could be prepared gluten-free according to her allergy. The server was knowledgeable about the ingredients in each dish. She was able to tell us which ones were safe for my daughter to eat, based on her dietary restrictions. This made it much easier for us to make informed decisions about what to order.

Furthermore, the server also had the capability of determining whether or not cross-contamination issues might have occurred. The server was able to accurately tell us if a dish was gluten-free and if there was any chance of cross-contamination from other ingredients.

The pasta with meatballs that my daughter had was very enjoyable. She did not eat the whole thing but saved some for later. She ate the leftovers the next day. This is a testament to the quality of the food; it was so delicious that even the leftovers were enjoyable.

The experience we had at Erica's in Ashland, Massachusetts, was pleasant. We look forward to returning sometime in the future in order to try something new and different there. It was a positive experience from the service to the food. The atmosphere was inviting and the staff was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed the food we had and were impressed with the variety of dishes on offer.

This series of posts will cover some tips and tricks that I have learned about my twelve-year-old daughter's gluten-free lifestyle in the Boston area. Gluten-free eating can be challenging in any big city, but especially in Boston due to the high number of restaurants and availability of options. I've been learning what I can to make sure my daughter can still enjoy eating out, and I want to share what I've learned so that other families in the same situation can benefit.
