While the food is delicious, my gluten free pasta dish came with a piece of regular gluten pasta mixed in. Absolutely not celiac safe

They do have gf pasta which they will charge extra for. They also have a decent gf crust for their pizza. However, they are not careful about cross contamination. If you are celiac stay away!

The waitstaff seemed somewhat knowledgable- and the pizza was pretty good- at the time- until my reaction that caused me to be sick for days.

An extra charge for gluten-free pasta is not right. What the owner needs to realize is the "picky" people who must follow a gluten-free diet are the people who determine where the dinner party or family will eat. If the establishment does not take care of the gluten-free diner, they get nothing at all. The owner needs to look at the big picture, the check amout of the whole party including drinks and dessert, instead of the added cost and work of accomodating the needs of the gluten-free diner. I would like the owner to post when they have eliminated the up-charge for being gluten-free.

Once owners realize this simple fact that gluten-free diners bring in business we will beat a path to their door. The other benefit is all the free advertising that forums like this provide.

All owners can learn from Burton's Grill in South Windsor, who do gluten-free right, not as an afterthought.
