Cafe Abbracci - AMAZING Gluten Free Pasta with Bolognese Sauce

Cafe Abbracci, in Coral Gables, a popular Italian restaurant, that will always have my business -- because they have the BEST gluten free pasta in the Gables.  I've actually become an addict and have to have my Cafe Abracci gluten free pasta with old School bolognese meat sauce regularly.  For $18, it's not the least expensive pasta - but, it's worth every penny.  Cafe Abbracci carries gluten free pasta on site, and you get to choose your sauce.  There are many pasta options, but I'm hooked on the meat sauce and can't even think of not having it.  I'm always ecstatic when local restaurants step up to the plate and accommodate us Celiac's - I'm thrilled to have Cafe Abbracci as a scrumptious lunch and dinner choice.
