Virgilio’s Wine Bar
Dine-In or Take-Out
Can I tell you how happy I was to see lasagna on the gluten-free menu? It was a complete double take. The SO had found Virgilio’s on Reddit for the best pizza in the Denver area. As a bonus, it also had a gluten-free pizza option. I didn’t research the place and just went in knowing I could get a GF pizza. Well, what a surprise when I saw their GF menu. Lasagna! I couldn’t get past that on the menu. I had to have it.
It took all my will power to stop and take a photo of it before I dived in. It was delicious. It tasted how I remembered lasagna tasting. The edges of the lasagna noodles were slightly crunchy (yumm) with all the cheese, meat and sauce mixed with every bite. The lasagna noodles were excellent. I didn’t taste any gritty texture or rubbery-ness, just heaven in a oven-proof dish. I only ate half, which was perfect for lunch and ate the rest for lunch the next day. It did not disappoint. I only wished I was patient enough to wait for it to be heated all the way through.
Virgilio’s doesn’t make their gluten-free noodles or pizza crust there, but ship it in from a gluten-free bakery in Minnesota. I definitely would go back and try their pizza or get the lasagna again. It may take a few times to get to the other gluten-free items; zucchini pasta or chicken parmigiana. They also offer gluten-free desserts. I definitely need to save room for those.
