    Really unimpressed with the food, we had the peppercorn chicken and pasta bolognese, the chicken was dry and bland and the pasta was that tough gluten free type pasta that has that waxy consistency. Service and ambience is great, but the food just isn't worth the reality high prices.

    Great GF Menu- nice staff that checked in with me a lot. I will be back here for sure when I need my pasta fix!

    Big gluten free menu. Went here with a group (all gluten eaters except for me) and everyone enjoyed.

    Went here for a late lunch (3pm) while waiting to check into our room at the Westin Hotel. Verified that gf pasta is cokes in separate water from pasta containing gluten but was told they don't use separate/newly cleaned utensils. Because they were slow (we were one of three parties in the place) & we wanted to bring this food into the SAP Center so my celiac daughter could eat safely during the US Olympic Gymnastic Trials, I asked that they freshly cleans all tool/pots that would come into contact with her meal. Waiter agreed to this but I don't think we'll be back as I had the impression this would not happen & doesn't routinely happen during busier times.

    They have a gf menu, and the food tasted okay. It made me sick. Walking out we noticed only one pot for pasta on stove. It's possible they boiled in the same water as regular pasta? Not sure, I'd ask if I ever go back.

    I couldn't be happier that the restaurant has a gluten free menu and the service was excellent but my meal was a little lacking something. The minestrone soup flavors just weren't there for me and half of my pasta wasn't cooked. My husband, however, had the roasted chicken and enjoyed it. Chicken next time.

    Nice GF menu with plenty of items: starters, soups, salads, pasta, meat, fish and deserts. Pasta was under cooked and not great tasting. No GF pizzas available.

    I had a wonderful meal here. They have a seperate GF menu but they also had a seasonal menu that didn't indicate whether items were GF. I asked the waiter about a particular dish on the seasonal menu and he checked with the chef. It was nice to have not only a delicious GF pasta starter but the seasonal menu item as well. They were both delicious!! The waiter also said that the company (Corner Bakery) is working on their own recipe for GF bread that will hopefully be available soon.

    Delicious!! Very accommodating for my celiac and many other allergies. Wait staff was knowledgable and offered excellent suggestions. They don't have gluten free bread available so I looked longingly at my husband and he ate his gluten filled bread dipped in oil. I will definitely be going back soon.

    Well trained wait staff, GF menu, extremely knowledgeable about celiac disease--NOT what you'd expect to find at an Italian restaurant! If you have celiac disease, you can relax and enjoy a wonderful meal here. We love this place!

    The restaurant is great. I wish they brought gd bread to the table when the regular bread was brought out, but other than that, it's great.
