- The awards involved a host of leading restaurants being put to the test, as a panel of expert judges from the monthly magazine blind tasted a range of dishes from the shortlisted restaurants’ menus
- La Tasca pipped its competitors to the post as it scooped ‘Best for Gluten’ for its main menu, which features over 34 gluten-free dishes
- La Tasca, which has 64 restaurants throughout the UK, launched its gluten-free friendly menu in February 2012 in a bid to make its offering more inclusive for people with varying dietary needs. The restaurant’s main menu also features 24 vegetarian dishes and a range of vegan dishes

Here at La Tasca we are passionate about offering our customers a variety of dishes, so the launch of our gluten free offering has been a great way to make our menu more accessible to more people. The award win follows a period of significant change for the business and we’re thrilled to see this is being well received by both our customers and the media.
