Bertucci's Gluten-Free Menu

Bertucci’s is a growing restaurant chain with over 90 locations throughout the United States.  Due to this growth, it looks like they got the attention of the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) which helped them to create a gluten-free menu and make it available to the Celiac community on their official website.

If you have a Bertucci’s Italian restaurant in your area and plan to visit, you’ll want to first view their official gluten-free menu here. For your convenience, here is the current version of Bertucci’s gluten-free menu:

    I have eaten in gluten free restaurants and have had attacks because of cross contamination, which there is nothing you can do. Until cooks and places of business prepare an area and dedicated equipment that is gluten free there is no guarantee. A steak put on a rack or pan that just cooked a breaded item can cause an attack. It does happen, because it is still not viewed as a problem.
    People still do not know what celiac sprue is or gluten for that matter. To eat out is taking a chance on your health.
