I just got my blood results back and I'm a no for Celiacs! I am so grateful! However, I am still intolerant and to a pretty sensitive level. Also, I do a decent job of deciphering which restaurants are celiac friendly and which ones are not.

Didn't see gluten-free buns at this location so I got a wrap. A stupidly expensive wrap. Which was only okay. Plus they were stingy with expensive additional toppings and the service was awful. She was nice but she just never came around our table. I would come here again to try a salad, but I know we're all super tired of salads being our only gluten-free restaurant options. I didn't get sick or anything, but I can make a better and cheaper wrap at home.

I always tell them my issue and ask them to change their gloves. I've had an issue at one location, but this one was fine for me.

Nice staff but no designated ovens for gluten free crust. Didn't eat here.

Literally had 3 balls of what was supposed to be gluten-free oatmeal raisin cookies and one gluten-free orange poppyseed cake that looked hard as a rock. I just got a latte and left.

Super yummy burger, gf buns and the fries have their own fryer, but this location was so hard to find. I lived in the area for a good few years and never bothered with this mall. As it turns out, there are no signs or maps anywhere and it's too much of a guessing game (especially for the craziness that is a sd Saturday night). I had to call and ask (inside the mall, across from AMC 20, park in the parking structure). Service was nice and friendly.

Very small gluten-free menu, but everything looked good. My husband ordered the regular mixed meat dish (gf version available) and I ordered gf pasta (they only have penne with tomato sauce, optional add of shrimp or chicken). My husband's food was awesome (but expensive). My food.... mushy and falling apart. I hate sending stuff back, but my husband was basically like "we're not paying for that inedible meal" haha. The waitress was really nice about it and asked if I wanted it remade or something different, but I opted for canceling it. I wasn't that hungry anyway. The manager came out to apologize and explained that they microwave their noodles in water to avoid contamination. They took my food off the bill and we had a gift card so my husband's food didn't cost anything. I got some salad in my system beforehand so I wasn't too disappointed. The wait staff was awesome about it all. Unfortunately, my husband and I won't be returning simply because it's expensive to eat the things on the gluten-free menu that actually taste good and we can easily grill our own meat and vegetables at home.

For a place called "pasta cafe", they had very few pasta options. Also, they came out to tell me they had no gluten-free fettuccini noodles left and if I wanted whole wheat instead. I just stared at him. I asked if they had any other noodles left for gluten-free and he said yeah so I asked him to sub them. 10 minutes later they came out and said there were no gluten-free noodles left at all. I asked if he knew if any other meals on the menu were gluten-free and he said he didn't know. Clearly the staff has no knowledge of gluten-free lifestyles. It was unfortunate to head out to this place after driving 8 hours and looking forward to finally getting to eat something and then coming up empty handed. I'm now at Wendy's eating chili for the second time today. I've never liked Wendy's haha Edit: my husband just told me that when he asked the waitress if they had a gluten-free menu, she said she didn't know what that meant. Clearly the staff has no knowledge about the subject.

Absolutely AMAZING gluten-free experience. Not only did they have delicious, free bread before our meals, but the gluten-free bruschetta was amazing!! They had a lot more appetizers that all looked good. They had pizza, pasta, sandwiches, and so much more good stuff on their menu. I got lump crab in a cream sauce over penne (amazing) and my husband got the Bolognese (also amazing). We were so stuffed that we had no room for dessert, but they actually had cookies, brownies, cheesecake, etc. Not to mention the most EXCELLENT service. They always made sure to verify that the food was gluten-free and they were so awesome about it. It didn't feel like I had to make them go out of their way to make things special. I felt no stress at all. I've missed that!

So many gluten free options and it was delicious! I got the Italian pizza (subbed out the gluteny ham for gf Italian sausage) in a small size (they offer small and large) and ate half of it to myself. The crust was thin, crunchy, and perfect (most places usually make it kind of chewy). Also, I don't think they charged extra for the gf option (California restaurants do). I was super happy to find this place. I was worried about the options I'd have in Texas, but the state seems pretty good with helping us gluten free people. Loved this place!
