    If you have celiac this restaurant is not for you. I took my family there and I am the only one with celiac. I was so excited to have a large GF menu and had the "allegedly" GF fried calmari (split with my family); and the GF chicken parmigiana with a side of GF penne. I usually only have mild symptoms due to cross contamination; but if I ingest substantial quantities of gluten my symptoms are harsh and severe. Last night I got horribly ill. I was essentially poisoned. Within 2 hours of getting home I was feeling ill and had horrible flatulence. This was followed within an hour by bloating; severe cramping; stomach pain and intermittent night sweats. Finally I had diarrea followed by intermittent (for about an hour) PROJECTILE vomiting. I will NEVER go back (this was my first visit after seeing they had a GF menu online) and strongly advise anyone with celiac to avoid this place at all cost. I have not been this sick since, several years back, a restaurant swore their bread was GF; and after my daughter (protector) got suspicious and asked to see the label; we realized it was sprout bread! Unfortunately by then I had ate 2 slices and got horribly ill that evening. My point is this had to be more than cross contamination. This was someone clueless who essentially poisoned me! Avoid!!

    Used to love this place for gluten free meals. Recently I went there and my chicken parm was raw chicken covered in sauce. Such a disappointment.

    Oh my oh my oh my. An amazing GF calamari. Is there any other reason you might need to try this place out? Awesome service, too.

    Awesome Resturant. They have a full separate gluten free menu, not just a couple of items. I had the gnocchi and they were excellent. I would have given 5 stars for the food except when they brought out my food, it wasn't gluten free. Good thing I asked to be sure. They apologized and got me the new plate, and it was delicious. I guess the moral of the story is always ask, just to be sure. I also had the chocolate cake for dessert, and you couldn't tell it was gluten free, it was that good. I highly recommend this Resturant, but recommend you verify your food is gluten free.

    So nice to have a FULL gluten free menu to look at instead of asking a million questions! Had Gluten free calamari (made with corn meal) very good! And gluten free veal parm, came with garlic mash potatoes and veggies. I was so stuffed could have just had the calamari for dinner! Can't wait to go back!
