La Focaccia can always be counted on to serve good hearty Italian food at fairly reasonable prices. It's a favorite with the locals.

Jacket and tie not required, but you may be more comfortable with a jacket only. Women are usually comfortable in a nice dress but not formal. Jeans are out.

Yes, La Foccacia does offer gluten free pasta and they have plenty of dishes that don't contain shellfish. I'm sure that they can suggest options or modify recipes to acommodate any other dietary restrictions you may have.
