Chef came out to customize my pasta order. I am both gluten and dairy-free, and ordered marinara sauce with mushrooms, spinach and herbs. The pasta is 100% corn. It's great that they do not upcharge for GF, and the pasta portion is big and delicious.

We were here while vacationing in FL. Our celiac son ordered a gluten free chicken entree. When it came out, there was pasta on his plate. (Not a whole serving, just a couple stray pieces.) We called a server over and they dealt with it appropriately. They took it back to the kitchen and eventually brought him a new dish. We were fairly sure they didn't just remove the pasta from the same plate because it took them a while, presumably to re-make it. They also took his dish off the bill and gave him a free dessert. The manager came to our table and apologized multiple times. He had no adverse reaction to the meal. Overall, they handled it appropriately but could have been a different experience if our son hadn't noticed the pasta.
Our celiac son has had the pizza many times, and has also had the stuffed shells. It's our go-to local pizza place. He's never had a problem with either. These are their only gluten free options. We've eaten there and also done take-out. On-line ordering is also convenient. 4 out of 5 stars due to the limited menu.
I know why the last two reviewers got sick. I used to eat here often because their menu is so well labeled, and their chips were gluten free. But now they are cooking churros in the fryers with the chips. It is still safe to eat here if you avoid the chips.
My son had three steak tacos on corn tortillas. When ordering, staff had to be reminded several times about cross contamination and seemed a bit confused. Are they trained or not? Their website says they are. Overall, not a bad dining experience... meaning no one got sick.
My son always gets a gluten free pizza, though they have said he can nibble from the safe foods in the buffet if he ever wanted to. His pizza is delivered in its own box by a server wearing gloves. His only complaint is that the pizza is often stuck to the aluminum that they cook it on, but otherwise, everything has always been great.
My Celiac son got sick from their gluten free cupcakes. While they warn people that they cannot guarantee no cross contamination, we were hoping for the best. Our mistake, but Celiacs should use caution.
I am a pastry chef with a gluten intolerance, specializing in gluten free treats, so I love to try GF desserts everywhere I go.
Very excited to find this place in Downtown Disney! I ordered a cupcake and a donut, which was the workers favorite flavors. So I was very excited to try!
Got back to my hotel and had the donut for breakfast.... I was EXTREMELY disappointed. The taste was NOTHING like what the flavor stated (coffee cake donut) and the texture was oily and crumbly. Tasteless donut. I forcefully ate it thinking about how much I paid for it but it was not to my liking.
Personally not the tastiest GF treats I've tasted, won't be returning here ever again.
