Almost all of their dishes can be made gluten free, and the food is delicious. I feel totally safe here and look forward to my next visit!

Excellent service, delicious food, and wheat-sensitive waitress who recommended the salmon cakes after asking if I was allergic or celiac - they were delicious!

Just an amazing place. I’ve been here 4 or 5 times, never any issue! The creamy pesto is the most amazing thing I’ve ever eaten- highly recommend. Sometimes they have gf bread, sometimes they don’t, but I’d recommend you ask your waiter and not the man who brings the bread, because although he is extremely kind, he doesn’t speak English very well. Go here!!!!!!

Super delicious- 98% of menu can be made gluten free. Had caprese and mussels and gnocchi- delicious! Note: their GF bread company went under, so no GF bread rolls for dinner. Update 6months later: they no longer have GF gnocchi, but they have GF pasta and GF butternut squash ravioli. The waiter was knowledgeable and kind. Also be careful- their default straw is a pasta straw.

Basil leaf has new owners. They no longer have GF bread, GF breading (so no chicken parm), the pasta used to be rice based, now it’s corn (so we celiacs who are intolerant to corn are out of luck), and they no longer have GF ravioli. Waitress said she “totally gets it and has a cousin who has celiac,” then said, “so what does celiac mean you need to stay away from? Are you vegan?” I was told, after she talked to her manager, and I quote, “you can have angel hair pasta without the pasta.” We left. It’s so disappointing that an amazing, consistently safe restaurant completely changed.

Very gluten-free friendly. Nice salads. They have a rice based GF pasta that makes most of the menu choices options. They take food allergy seriously.

SO many gluten free options including ravioli!! Staff was wonderful, they bring you gf bread if you ask and they even brought me my own olive oil for dipping without me saying anything! Got fried calamari and pesto gnocchi. We got two glasses of wine, two entrees, and an appetizer for under $70. Great place!

I didn’t have a great experience here. But I did have a GF meal without sickness. Came on NYE so it was a special menu. They do have GF bread but were unable to provide me with the ingredients (I’m allergic to other things too) so I could not eat it. Same with the GF noodles. They throw away packages so there’s no way to know. Waitress was impatient. Another place catering to the GF fad dieters. Upsetting since I chose this place for the GF food on a special night yet ended up with plain chicken again. A lot of people w Celiac are sensitive to other ingredients too. Knowledgeable restaurants keep ingredients lists.

Wonderful dining experience. Lots of menu choices and large portions! Had fried calamari appetizer which was plenty for 3 of us. Ravioli and meatballs was very good. Even g-free bread with my own dipping oil. Never had an empty glass and used dishes were quickly cleared. Definitely coming here again!

Wonderful gnocchi, which was GF. More, it was better than the glutenful gnocchi at Da Luciano's.

I wouldn't exactly call this a gluten free restaurant. We had to double check each item. I believe that they use corn products to substitute because I also react to that. I had to ask for gf bread. The dessert list just has two items. They describe their salads as gluten free, which I think is ridiculous because that's obvious. The main courses are incredibly rush that we ordered.
