Sometimes you are just in the mood for pasta and there are very few gluten-free pasta options out there so I am glad that the Old Spaghetti Factory has a national gluten-free menu. I had the gluten-free pasta with the Mizithra Cheese & Browned Butter. It was really good and there was enough that I could take home half for another meal. Your meal comes with a side salad (kind of lame iceberg lettuce salad) and a scoop of ice cream for $10, which is good value these days. And the miracle is that the they DO NOT charge extra for gluten-free pasta! Where else have you seen that? To be honest, I wasn't that crazy about the Old Spaghetti Factory before I become gluten-free but now that they have a good selection of GF items, I will definitely be back.
Finally Bucca di Beppo has a gluten free menu! This restaurant is a fave for many people and it was always frustrating that all I could eat was a lame salad. Although they still don't have gluten-free pasta, at least you can order chicken or fish entrees prepared in a gluten-free fashion. Hopefully GF pasta will come soon!

I have been wanting to try Roy's Hawaiian Fusion Restaurant for some time and now that I know they have a gluten-free menu, I'm more likely to try it soon. They currently have a $35 prix fixe menu.
Last night I saw these single-serving cheesecakes at Henry's. They are made by Pamela's Products and are gluten free! They come in several flavors and I tried the New York Cheesecake one. It was so good. The cheesecake was good and the crust was good too - with a cinnamon flavor. I don't think anyone would know it was gluten-free! They are on sale right now at Henry's for 2 for $6.
