    Awesome experience, wonderful food! I have celiac and am so happy to have found this gem! So many choices, staff and kitchen very aware of cross contamination issues! And most importantly I did not get sick after eating there! Definitely going back!!

    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.
