Normal people book their hotels near where they need to be. I book mine near restaurants I want to try (within reason). I flew into Pittsburgh two weekends ago and I needed to be in Butler the next afternoon for a meeting. I booked my hotel somewhere between the Pittsburgh Airport and Butler so I could eat at Bella Frutteto, which I found on the Gluten Free Travel Site.
I went to Bella Frutteto on a Saturday night by myself. I was feeling very brave. And hungry. When I finally found Bella Frutteto it reminded me a lot of my parent's restaurant Sarducci's. It was busy so I decided to eat at the bar and pretended to watch the football game. The reason I wanted to try Bella Fruttto was because they have a huge gluten free menu. After much deliberation I ordered the Sausage and Chicken Pasta with a side Spinach Salad. They were both really good. I started with the salad which had granny smith apples, gorgonzola, and walnuts. The pasta had chicken, sausage, mozzarella, and a tomato cream sauce over gluten free pasta. It was amazing. I'm craving it again now as I write this post. If I ever have the opportunity to go back I'd love to try the Harvest Chicken Salad or Balsamic Chicken.
If you ever find yourself within an hour radius of Wexford, PA, I highly suggest you stop by this place.
