Gluten Free Menu Shines at Siino’s Pizza, Pasta and Grill in Lincoln

A few weeks ago, Andy and I visited a restaurant in Lincoln called Siino’s Pizza, Pasta & Grill. We were originally going to sample the gluten free pizzas as a part of National Pizza Month in October, but instead we decided to go with other items on the gluten free menu. Siino’s story began...

It was an evening that was well overdue. My husband, my good friend and I went out to dinner, and we shared a bottle of Estancia Pinot Grigio from Estancia Winery. Because it was the last of the hot days of summer, a nice white wine seemed very much in...
