Delicious GF free pizza. They can make almost any pizza or pasta GF ($4 up charge). My pizza came on its own foil pan (though it is a shared oven), hours later no symptoms of contamination. Highly recommend.

Sausage GF pizza
Bencotto has a really good pasta GF. They said me that the GF pasta is made in different pans.

The gf penne was fine, but overcooked like most places do unfortunately. I had it with the bolognese which was so hot it clearly continued to cook the pasta in the bowl. I ate it all because gf pasta never reheats well, but it was definitely pricey for a pretty average meal. I have a wheat allergy and am not sensitive to cross contamination.

I ordered the GF pesto pasta and it was delicious. I was assured by my waitress that for gluten allergies they use separate pans and utensils. I didn’t get sick so I will be going back!

Ordered take out from Bencotto the other night and it was great!! When I called in the order, the person answering the phone was super friendly and very helpful. I asked if the chicken penne broccoli could be made gluten free and he said yes so I went with that (but will be going back to try the pesto gnocchi that others have suggested). I thought the food tasted amazing and was enough for two portions - love having a second helping for lunch the next day! The service was great going to pick up the food as well and actively did not give bread with the order knowing it was not gf. Would definitely recommend!

My vegetarian boyfriend and I shared two GF and vegetarian pasta dishes. As another reviewer mentioned, the pesto gnocchi was absolutely amazing! Our other dish, however, came to the table with sausage in it even though that wasn’t one of the listed ingredients. We didn’t realize until my boyfriend took a bite. The staff was apologetic and remade the dish properly. I didn’t get sick, so it seems as though they were careful about it being GF, but it is concerning that a dish came out altered, even after confirming that it was vegetarian when ordering. They did not take any amount off of the bill, which was upsetting.

The staff was just ok they seemed uninterested and quite frankly bothered when I confirmed one of their appitizers was gluten free. The food and atmosphere was just fine, would not return.
