    The GF menu has shrunk since a year ago when I was there, a couple options only. The only salad offered (included with the meal) is at the salad bar, so CC is highly likely. Even without eating from the salad bar, was still glutened. It seems this section of the menu has lost priority.

    Spaghetti Works has a great gluten-free menu. They serve all pastas with rice noodles and have a couple different sauces and additions to choose from. I added sausage to my pasta. The portions are not large. If your waiter/waitress doesn't inform you, make sure to ask for all you can eat pasta. It is included. I also chose not to risk the salad bar. I have Celiac Disease and had no problems eating at Spaghetti Works. Definitely good option for gluten free!

    Had a great experience here for my sons birthday. Good pasta dishes and sauces. This place seems to know their stuff about safely serving gluten free. Knowledgable staff. Each time my food came out someone separate brought it and clearly stated it was gf. The salad bar is a bit of a gamble. It would be nice to see them come up with another option, maybe a salad from the kitchen. I have Celiac and felt comfortable here and had no reaction. Great place.

    Easy downtown location. Great food. Waitress knew to tell the kitchen we were GF so they could set up to avoid cross contamination. Also the price was good. We will return when in Des Moines.

    Great GF section on the menu with Pizza, pasta and chicken nuggets. I didn't try the pasta, but the pizza was good.

    They have a GF menu with pizza, pasta, and chicken tenders. The pasta is angel hair made from rice and it is the greatest. You're able to get up to three different sauces on it and the GF ones are labeled. Portions are small but you get free pasta refills! The meal also comes with a salad bar. All their dressings are GF. They also make Italian sodas with 20+ different flavors. It has a very cute location in the downtown area next to the capital building, which is great for travelers who don't know the area. AND THEY ARE OPEN ON SUNDAYS, which I guess is rare in this area since nothing else was. I highly recommend!
