Our server arrived. This is one of those rare guys who exudes passion for his job, and his job is your satisfaction. We repeated our Gluten Free message after a good look at Violino’s full menu – and when he told us that everything but two items on the menu could and would be made without gluten, our celiacs were rendered speechless. When he went on to ask if they would like some Gluten Free bread to start – which would take about 12 minutes, as it is fresh-baked to order (!) – they actually teared up. Much, much later, after lobster risotto, black and white linguine with shrimp, chicken breast with crab and goat cheese stuffing, and veal and pork meatballs with herbed goat cheese on fusilli, we fell silent. This food monopolized any conversation. And we eavesdropped on other tables – that one with the socialite ladies out from their own Glenora mansions for the evening, with a celiac among them too…and this one, with the East Indian couple whose meal left them totally relaxed, totally full, and totally happy.
