    I had two great experiences here! I found the restaurant to be very celiac-friendly. First time, our waitress was very knowledgeable. Chef came out to speak with me, took my order, explained the steps they take to prevent cross-contamination - which definitely put my mind at ease. They brought me gluten-free rolls (warm!) with a separate dish with oil/herbs for dipping - delicious! I ordered the caprese salad, GF penne alla vodka, and the flourless chocolate cake (with a scoop of vanilla gelato). It was very good, and I did not get sick! I ordered it again the second time we came. :) I did feel a bit nervous the second time around - waiter was less knowledgeable (I told him I had celiac, and he said, "Allergy?")...and they were busy, and I could tell the chef was rushed when he took my order. But I didn't get sick, so thumbs up for that!

    We went here for dinner yesterday and had an overall good experience even though it started out bumpy. We have 4 kids but they never eat all of their food so we told our waitress that we wanted to use 2 adult and 2 kids dining plan meals. She said "No! that is not how this works." After explaining to her that we do not want to see the dinner show we figured out that she is actually very nice, just very abrupt. she brought me my own basket of gluten free rolls and a seperate dish of oil. yum. I ordered the Strip Steak and it was really good. It came with a side of gf penne with white cheese sauce that my kids kept stealing from my plate. I ordered the cheesecake for dessert. it was just ok. it was pretty good with the strawberry sauce but there was very little of the sauce. I left half of it on the plate. Overall a good experience.

    GF options were good. I had jumbo shrimp with cheese pasta sauce which was very good. I would order it again, but ask for less cheese sauce as it was swimming in cheese sauce. GF roll was tasty, but wish they had venice baking bread like disneyland. Chef was great. Waitress was terrible and ruined our dining experience. It was clear we were bothering her when we asked for anything.

    We ate dinner here tonight. We had a great experience here a few years ago so after reading the other reviews I was a little concerned. However, we had a fantastic experience. The server was wonderful and the food was excellent. My 11 yo celiac daughter had the chicken pasta, I had the pasta alla vodka and my husband had he saltimbocca. Everything was delicious. The server brought a basket of gf rolls before our entrees came and then we had some more with dinner. For dessert, we shared the cheesecake and the flourless chocolate cake. They were both good. If I were to compare this to Tony's at the Magic Kingdom, I would say the entrees are much better here but the creme brûlée at Tony's beat the desserts here....just because creme brûlée is not an ordinary dessert. I have uploaded pics of our food and the current allergy menu. We will be eating here again!

    Food was standard GF pasta, but something was cross contaminated because I got sick soon after. I won't be eating there again.

    Good GF options to choose from. Segregated area for GF pasta, good GF meat/cheese antipasto appetizer, and GF rolls. Chef comes out to greet.

    GF pasta, savory marinera sauce. The chicken was average. The tuna was good with a great risotto
