La Bottega, groceteria and take out, is a gem in the market. It is full of amazing Italian products--love the olive oil! Service and food are good--it has a good customer base with satisfied returning customers.

I don't recall seeing gluten free as an option. But I wasn't looking. There is a vegan restaurant down Elgin Street closer to Maclaren that is vegan called Pure Kitchen that will definately have gluten free.
