    Superb!! They have great checks in place to ensure your pasta is GF. Easily accommodate and educated about GF. Food was exceptional especially for a chain. Doesn't feel like a chain.

    There are many gluten free options on the menu, but they do call out they cannot ensure GF cooking practices. My dish came out littered with bread crumbs. Upon getting it a second time, the pasta (which is just boxed from the store) was extremely over cooked and the sauce has no flavor.

    The staff was very helpful and knew about celiac and cross contamination. I called and they offered to let me talk with Chef Ralph who assured me I would be safe. Upon arrival the shift manager talked with us, then the general manager/owner came to our table to check on us, and chef Ralph came out to our table also.... made sure all was good and gave me a hug! I had pasta woozie which was very good. Excellent and would go again!

    When we were seated, my mom asked to speak with the head chef. She explained to him that my celiac son was nervous about eating outside of the house recently and asked if he could assure us that the gluten free food was safe for celiac diners. The chef responded with one word: "yes". I would have felt better if he went on to explain the precautions taken in the kitchen, but I figured 'yes' was better than 'no'. The restaurant was fairly empty, so I was comfortable that they would be able to prevent cross contamination. My son ordered the GF pasta woozie without chicken. When we ordered, the server asked if he had an allergy or if this was a food preference. I took that as a good sign. As my son was eating his meal, he noticed part of a ravioli in his dish. We notified the staff who apologized. The manager (?) personally watched the chef remake the dish and she assured us that it was safe to eat this time. My mom dined there again within the same week. She mentioned the incident to a manager and was told that she did not hear of the gluten incident and she should have been informed. This restaurant handled the situation professionally, and didn't charge us for the dish, but this should not have happened.

    I have celiac and my husband and I come here all the time and sit in the bar section. David, one of the managers told me shortly after I was diagnosed that all of their pasta is boiled separately. Any time they have accidentally made my djsh wjth gluten, they have always told me of the mistake and remade it (and given me a free glass of wine for the mistake!) They really care about gluten sensitive people. Plus the food is absolutely amazing. The shrimp scampi, chicken with sun dried tomato goat cheese and creme brûlée are my favorite :) one of my favorite restaurants in the area by far!

    Ate here today with my 3 year ole daughter who has celiac. Made waitress aware she cannot have gluten and ordered gf pasta with butter. Double checked with waitress when food came out that the noodles were gf. She assured me they were. Two hours later and my daughter has been vomiting with belly pain all afternoon/night. I will never go back here. Would not suggest anyone with a gluten issue/celiac disease eat here

    The service was very slow and although we spoke to the manager about our needs, my daughter ended up getting sick. Later they told me that the chef who made the salad dressing wasn't in that day so they couldn't be sure it was gluten free. They do not understand and are careless.

    Had GF pasta dish first time. No reaction. Second time (Valentines Day) GF pasta must have been wheat as I had a super bad dermatitis herpeatformis (DH) rash reaction. I'll never order GF pasta, anywhere, because of the risk of unknowingly ingesting a huge amount of wheat.

    Bravo has a menu that indicates which dishes can be made GF. There are only a few--salad and some of the pasta dishes but I ordered a dairy free version of the chicken and spring vegetables pasta that was not even indicated to be GF with GF pasta as a substitute and I had no reaction. It is grilled chicken, pesto (no cheese in pesto) and veggies. Delicious! I am not Celiac so one would need to investigate further about cross contamination etc., if you are.

    So happy I found this place on this app. Today was my fiance's birthday and he wanted Italian. I'm always upset about going to Italian places because of the bread, etc. but this place was incredible. Our server was friendly and accommodating, they do not serve bread (which may sound selfish but I was stoked), and the flavors were fantastic! I had the BRAVO! Chopped Salad, the Pasta Pomodoro with Chicken, and we split a bottle of Reisling. For the first time in a long time my stomach is bigger than normal from being full instead of being glutened. They also offered him a choice of three complimentary desserts for his birthday. Even though it's 30 miles from our house we will definitely be back!

    If you need gluten free stay away from this place. I've eaten here twice and they have brought out gluten containing food/wrong order both times. The sad thing is i ordered off the gluten free menu AND verified with server once food wad brought out. Yet i still ended up with gluten containing food. how do you mess up a salad..Add breaded onion strips. only good thing here is the martinis. Hence the one star. Servers suck because they are liars and the food made me sick. I wont return.

    Just left from the bravo next to the lehigh valley mall, food was quite good, however there was a linguini noodle cooked in with my gf pasta meal. After notifying the manager they were very apologetic and gave us our meal for free, but it seems they were draining all of their pasta in the same strainer. Be very careful if you go. Update** I have stopped back a few times since this occurred and haven't gotten sick and no incidents occurrd :? I think it's a safe go now :)

    Although the menu states "not recommended for those with celiac", the manager came over and explained all of their procedure to minimize cross contamination. Obviously nothing can be guaranteed but they seem to take celiac seriously. We enjoyed the meal and service.

    The waitress place pasta sprinkles, their version of croutons on my salad, it wasn't until I asked to double check we found out they were not gf, I had had a couple of bites of course. Contacted the company and was promised gift cards and was told they would double check everything for me. I did not receive gift cards and have not have them a second chance.
