About Me

I was diagnosed in November of 2011. I struggle with the diet because I don't enjoy cooking, but such is life:) I just make the best of it and try to raise awareness to the general public of the seriousness of Celiac Disease and how any little amount will make us very ill.

    Very pricey. No prices on GF menu, no description of menu items, no side dishes or salads come with main dish so you order everything seperate. My steak was $40 alone. They brought out delicious smelling bread and specialty butter that I could only stare at and watch be eaten. I did get sick in the middle of the night so I suspect cross contamination is to blame. I won't go back.... sick all night and all day. Horrible gluten poisoning, especially for a meal that cost so much!

    Great pizza and a safe method of making the pizza. Plus, you can choose whatever topping you want!

    Always dependable for a GF meal. Recently changed their menu and I am not happy what I liked was eliminated, but still a good menu and safe dinning.

    I ordered the breaded calamari which was on the GF menu because it has corn and buttermilk breading but after explaining I have a severe reaction they said they are fried in the same oil as everything else.

    Always dependable for a gluten free meal. They unfortunately recently changed their gluten free menu and it is now more limited. I call it the new and UNIMPROVED menu....but still decent food.

    They are very good and have an exceptional wait staff. On one visit they did accidentally give me normal pasta, I asked because it looked too good. The manager quickly grabbed it away from me and made a new one. He also informed me the gluten free pasta will always be green so its easily recognized as GF.
