La Tavernetta, Southampton Review
The restaurant was very easy to find and the staff were friendly and welcoming. They offer gluten free pizza and pasta as mains and were even able to make gluten free garlic bread for my brother and friend who are also gluten free, which wasn’t even on the menu! The service was very good and the food once ordered came relatively quickly. Everyone of my friends said how delicious the food was and in particular all of those eating gluten free were very impressed. I had the Hawaiian gluten free pizza, which I knew would be low FODMAP as it contained mozzarella, ham and pineapple. You may not know this but most cheese is low in lactose so suitable on a low FODMAP diet as it will not trigger an ibs attack. I didn’t realise this myself until recently after a consultation with my NHS dietician, previously I had been strictly dairy free, thinking dairy was the problem. Below is a photo of the Hawaiian gluten free pizza, the photo doesn’t really do the pizza justice as the lighting was very dark to create an ambient mood in the restaurant. Due to the shape of the pizza you can tell it was freshly made and it tasted out of this world, seriously yummy! I would strongly recommend you visit this restaurant for the pizza alone, unfortunately I can’t comment on the pasta as all three of us eating gluten free chose to have the gluten free pizza. I can’t wait to revisit this restaurant and try other things on their menu! They even said they would be happy for us to phone up and collect a pizza for takeaway. We were all very impressed with the food and will definitely be back soon especially to try out some of their themed nights! 2-4-1 pizza & pasta from Sunday to Thursday and Wednesday steak night.
