La Famiglia Restaraunt In Greenland, Nh

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Just a quick tip, there's an Italian restaraunt in Greenland, NH (between Portsmouth and Hampton) that now offers gluten free rice penne from an Italian company called Beretta, which I had never heard of. It was pretty good, I got it with a regular ole red marinara sauce, and I couldn't even tell the difference between good ole regular penne. The owner's son has food allergies (not sure if gluten/wheat is one of them but I would assume so) and he is very careful about what he serves, everything is fresh and he uses mostly local food with no trans-fats or artificial ingredients etc. It's all in an article that I was reading with an interview for him which is why I went to check this place out, I don't know if posting URL's is ok in posts but here is the article.


Also in the article the owner said he is planning to work on a gluten free (rice based I think he said) bread and pizza crust!! (Note though, he said that in an article in November of '07 so still no luck I guess in coming up with one he feels would be good to serve...or maybe he hasn't had time)

Anyways, just nice to have another new place to go eat in the seacoast area and indulge in my old favorite foods woot! Very exciting stuff, this place will be getting alot of my business in the near future (and unfortunately alot of my $$, it is pretty pricey haha oh well).

Oh, just an FYI the restaurant also has steak and chicken and salad etc. too which can be prepared gluten free, there is no gluten-free menu though you just have to let the server know.

Yeah, this is the closest place to where I live (Seabrook) that I know does the gluten-free pasta so far, I guess there's a place in Merrimack, NH called Ya Mamma's that does it too and then waaaay up in North Conway there's a place called Bellini's, but I haven't been to either of them.

Also if you ever go down to Boston, there's a place in the North End I tried that was really good AND has some great bread called Marco's and I hear (haven't been yet) that Maggianos has gluten-free pasta available, but it's good to call ahead, they are near the South End/Copley.

Anyways, La Famiglia doesn't have the pizza/bread yet, but you could do the penne and a salad. The portions on the penne was great and tasted excellent overall.

Oh and one more (I tend to ramble on my posts, sorry haha) but Flatbread pizza which there are a few of (one in Amesbury and one in downtown Portsmouth) has gluten-free pizza and they are very informed on how to cook it. It's a bit pricey for the size, very small personal-sized one, but hey whose complaining haha.

I was diagnosed in April, so I have been on a mission to find all the places I can around here that are gluten-free-friendly/accomodating. If you check out some of my other posts I have some more information about some of the restaurants in this post and other ones too.



PS: I was born/raised in Portsmouth/North Hampton, but after college I lived on the North Shore for awhile. I still work there now in Ipswich. I haven't had much luck finding anything down that way but I hear that Woodman's in Essex is totally gluten-free. The owner's son I think has Celiac's and he has dedicated friolators for the fries and seafood and gluten-free bread crumbs...the whole nine yards. I haven't checked it out yet cuase I don't head towards Gloucester and that way anymore, I think it's right on 133 heading that way, but I am planning to someday.

Oh Nick!!! Thank you so much!

Bellini's in North Conway has great pizza! If you go to the Cape BZ's in Dennisport, between Yarmouth and Harwich, right off route 28, has the BEST gluten-free pizza I have ever had!

I'm excited to hear about Marco's in the North end having gluten-free. I miss Flatbread Pizza!
