The Globe has a piece about North End restaurants going GF: http://www.boston.com/yourtown/news/north_end/2011/11/gluten-free_options_quietly_po.html

Other North End restaurants also order gluten-free items to cook with due to the growing demand. Just a couple streets over from Mother Anna’s, Benevento’s on Salem Street offers such gluten-free items as pizza, pasta and beer. It has recently added gluten-free breads and even gluten-free croutons, atop salads.

“It’s something people need and not many restaurants have,” said Benevento’s owner, Joe Bono.

Bono said he likes to accommodate people even though there are a few minor challenges, such as properly training staff members.

“It’s not that hard that we can’t adapt,” he said.
