Our visit to Trattoria Bella Mia in Beverly began simply as a way to see the entertainment scheduled for the night ( Just The Two of Us), but it quickly turned into a meal when we were told gluten-free linguini was available to substitute in most of the pasta dishes!
Our meal began with the tasty Roasted Pear and Gorgonzola Salad (a mesculin mix with an orange vinaigrette topped with roasted pears, gorgonzola cheese and walnuts. Next, however, we did not end up choosing pasta for our entree! Once we saw the words ’white chocolate’ on the menu, we decided to go with the Jumbo Sea Scallops which were served with asparagus, white chocolate risotto (yum!) and drizzled with a Limoncello sauce. Our server was great to check with the chef regarding our choices and made note on the check to avoid flouring our scallops before searing.
There are plently of other modifiable entrees to choose from. Most items are made to order and, as already mentioned, most of the pasta dishes can be served with gluten-free pasta (with the exception of the lobster ravioli and tortellini). If you’re planning on the gluten-free pasta, I suggest you call ahead to be sure they have it available.
Opps! Sorry we didn’t ask about dessert. Our meal was so satisfying that something sweet wasn’t desired (the white chocolate risotto took care of that matter)!
