I am not celiac but gf, df. The gf pasta(no extra charge) had perfect texture. Many gf options like zoodles, cauliflower crust. Staff was very knowledgeable and assisted me to create my excellent gf meal.

I specifically said to the waiter several times that I could not have gluten; even discussed the possibility of gluten in certain sauces. He said he wasn't very knowledge about the sauces, so I decided to stick with a gluten free pizza. It wasn't. The reaction was so bad I almost went to the hospital. I probably should have but didn't want to ruin my friends trip.

They have gluten free penne that is really good! A lot of sauce options- have to ask if specific ones are GF or not. They may have other menu items but I never ask bc I love the penne!

Zoodles were a good option tonight when the server told me they were out of gf pasta. No croutons in salad, server seemed knowlegable and trained. Server was happy to confirm Italian sausage was gf. Still... came home feeling "glutoned".

I love their food here. They are good about taking care of a gluten allergy, as well as other food restrictions if needed. They will customize dishes for you if you ask. They lost stars for poor variety of gf options when they clearly have the ingredients on hand to make more of their dishes gf, being too expensive when you need to make substitutions with things that actually cost much less (especially when it appears as if they make everything from the bottom up for each individual order), and for not educating all of their staff about food allergies. I have learned to stress the importance of my needs because about 5% of the time I'll get someone working there who has no idea, and I have gotten sick twice due to crossover. One time they even left croutons on a dish after clearly emphasizing that it was gf! Normally they do take great care to prepare foods appropriately, even taking explicit precautions in the kitchen. And bend over backwards to make sure it's gf! But there is that periodical off person you'll get who has no idea. We eat here about once a month.

there is no specific gluten-free menu, but many salads and pasta dishes are available.

They offer a gluten free pasta substitute, but the pasta chef claims that none off their sauces are gluten free. Not safe for Celiacs!!!

They are trained and have some nice options. Wish they would make a GF bread when everyone else is dipping....

They do not have a gluten free menu, but if you ask your server what's gluten free they'll tell you just about everything and ask specifically what you're interested in and ask the chef to make sure. They offer gluten free pasta, corn, that's really good. always very good food. always friendly service.

The gluten free pasta dishes have flavor but the sauce is always watery.

One of my go to places for a gluten free meal, have never had an issue with getting sick due to cross contamination.

The pasta was great... The only thing I was not happy about was the $2.75 up charge because of gluten free pasta. On a lunch special with barely half a cup of pasta. Not too happy about that! But hey, the pasta was good. The fact that I just paid $11.75 for a lunch special because I have an intolerance really isn't cool.

Ok food - GF pasta was a bit under cooked so it detracted from the yummy sauce

I went to Babbo's for their gluten free pasta. I ordered the 3-cheese mac and cheese and it was brought to my table with croutons on top. This exact issue occurred also at a Babbo's location in Sun City a few weeks prior. Not the end of the world, I simply sent it back to the kitchen and expected a new dish to be prepared. The SAME dish was brought back to me ~10 minutes later with *SOME* of the croutons picked off, however they mistakenly left 2 behind. Busted. 100% unacceptable. While my meal was paid for, I will not be returning. To top it off, the manager apologized but it seemed to lack sincerity. If a restaurant wants to provide gluten free items on their menu, the staff needs to be better educated.

I took the last reviewers advice and tried the spicy 3 cheese mac and cheese and it was fantastic! it was brought to my table with croutons on top, but they immediately fixed it and the manager came over to apologize and check if everything was okay once I had eaten. I was happy with a meal and very happy with service!
