By your screen name I assume you are in NY. There are a couple really good Italian places in the city that have gluten-free menus if he is not dead set on a particular place. Lumi is amazing, and the perfect date place. (I swear I have no affiliation with this place, but I rave about it so much I think everyone is going to start to think I do. LOL)!

If he is taking you to a particular place that he has in mind, I have ordered Chicken Marsala, but tell them not to coat the chicken in any flour. Just give you naked grilled chicken, and check that the marsala sauce is not thickened with any flour, that it is just the white wine sauce, maybe some butter, etc.

You can also do this with chicken scarpiello (sp?). Basically I find chicken dishes that are generally in a white wine or oil/garlic type sauce are easiest to adjust.

Have fun on your date!!

I just ate at a little italian place up in williamsburg-ordered scallops, shrimp, and fish in old bay, butter, white wine....delicious!

Risotto's and polenta's are usually safe - just double check with the chef to see what he uses in any sauces that may accompany the dish.

Good luck!
