We had a nice outdoor dinner with wonderful flounder and the special red snapper. Side of penne and good sauce. Just be aware a commuter train runs by it. Service wasn't great but good made up for that .

Fratello's offers gluten free pasta. Linguini and penne. And both are very good. We did a lot of sampling to get this correct. We also have a few salads and many seafood dishes that are gluten free.
