    Disappointed would be an understatement. I was excited to try The Owl House because of their supposed knowledge of Celiac Disease and the gluten-free diet. When I placed my order I double checked with the waiter that my order was, in fact, gluten-free, because I am always leery even if it says it is gluten-free on the menu. He said yes. Not even two hours after eating there I became terribly ill. The next day I called and asked to speak with the manager, then asked again if what I ate was gluten-free. I was told no. They took down my email address and phone number, stating they would send me a $20 gift certificate for the "inconvenience". I never received the gift certificate, nor will I ever go back. It is completely unacceptable for a restaurant that claims to be so specialized in the gluten-free diet to have a wait staff so unknowing and unskilled in the meaning and definition of "gluten-free". Eat at your own risk.

    I was so excited when I saw that Biaggi's had a full spread gluten-free menu and such a large selection of foods to choose from. They started off by asking if I wanted gluten-free bread. Bread?! Like what "normal" customers get to start their meals off with? Yes, please! I've never had a restaurant offer me bread before. It was delicious! I ordered the alfredo dish with grilled chicken, which was just as yummy as the bread and came in a normal sized serving (my experience has been that gluten-free dishes tend to arrive in smaller portions). This is my new favorite place to eat and I will return to try more of their menu options. I would highly recommend Biaggi's to anyone with Celiac Disease. You won't be disappointed!
