Gluten-free Restaurant Review: Via, Worcester MA

March 24, 2011

Via Restaurant Worcester MA

Gluten-free Spit-Roasted Sirloin of Beef

If you find yourself in Worcester, MA, looking for lunch or dinner, look no further. Via, Italian table is a fabulous option for gluten-free dining. Friendly waitstaff, comfortable seating and delicious food all at an affordable price. What more could you ask for? For those of us who are gluten-free, being overwhelmed by choice is not usually an issue. Even at restaurants that claim to have a gluten-free menu, the options are often still pretty limited. This is not the case here. Via’ gluten-free menu is pages long filled with salads, soups, gluten-free pasta options, entrees and desserts. I had a very hard time making a decision.

I decided to go with the Gluten-free spit-roasted sirloin of beef with Tuscan herb rub and butternut squash risotto with pancetta. The lunch option was only $12.99 so I wasn’t sure if this was going to be a tiny plate but it sounded delicious. They were so accommodating to all of my allergies and prepared the dish without the pancetta. The dish arrived and as you can see the portion was not small. My mouth began to water. The beef was cooked to perfection. Perfectly browned on the outside, rare on the inside, with a heavenly aromatic gluten-free glaze. The butternut squash risotto was out of this world. As I type, I can’t stop salivating! It was like warm macaroni and cheese in a risotto. Each bite was like a fork full of heaven. The meal was so rich but so delicious. It took all my will power to stop eating. I decided to be nice and bring mark home the remaining half. Even reheated for dinner, he agreed, the meal was amazing and that this would be well worth a trip out to Worcester.

Make sure if you are planning to dine at Via, that you make a reservation. This restaurant is not a secret and they are always packed.
