We would like to remind you all that not only is there street parking, there is parking behind the Merchant’s Block building (the site of the former Freedlander building) to the west of us. This parking lot can be reached from the alley behind the court house or from Walnut Street. There are a few handicapped spaces facing The Parlor and after 5pm on weekdays and Saturdays and Sundays all of the spaces are available for use. Our back door is conveniently close to the east drive of the parking lot so walking around to the front door is not necessary.

We are well stocked with Anise, Chocolate, Citrus (orange/lemon) and Vanilla Pizzelle at $4.50/dozen. We also have a limited supply of GLUTEN-FREE Anise and vanilla pizzelle at $8.00/dozen.

We offer some of the best gluten-free pasta you have ever tasted, imported from Italy and dressed with your choice of gluten- free sauces and can be served with our seafood dishes as well. We also offer polenta and frequently offer risotto as a menu special.

We also make gluten-free pizza. Call ahead (the day before) for a really fresh and tasty gluten-free pizza.

FYI we also stock a premium imported Italian whole wheat pasta in a few different varieties/shapes.
