Gluten friendly but absolutely not celiac friendly. There is an extremely high risk of cross contamination as I found out after eating my food. Besides from that, their food is not great.

Items marked GF on menu. I ordered the grilled salmon, along with my another member of my party. They brought the dishes and I asked before eating if I had the GF dish. The server said yes. About 5 minutes into our meal, the server and manager came over to our table and informed me I’d been given the wrong plate. The sweet potatoes seasoning was not GF. Was sick for 10 days. I gave this restaurant another try last night. I thought it would be safe to order same meal since I knew what to look for. Plate came out correctly, however I’m sick again this morning. Not confident with cross contamination here.

I have celiac. Informed servers of allergy. No guarantee of no contamination. Menu isn’t exactly large but it’s more than we get at most places. Has GF noodles! Have ate here several times and no contamination yet.

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.

Location has a few options for gluten free. Menu states “gluten friendly” so still beware of what and how you order.

Placed an order for gluten free pizza and when we drove all the way over to pick it up, we were told they don’t offer it anymore!

Maybe change the online menu so people don’t waste their time driving out for gluten free food? And also alert the person on the phone that you don’t offer gluten free food.

Server and service was fantastic but this place is not celiac friendly. Items on the menu that can be made gluten free are marked. I requested the Fra Diavolo pasta as it is marked that it can be made gluten free but asked to double check with the chef. The chef mentioned that the dish could not be made gluten free as it contains some Alfredo sauce that has flour in it. So use caution even when ordering menu items marked gluten free. I then went with the Caesar salad as I was assured it’s safe but there ended up being cross contamination as I was sick within a hour.

Cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience here! Not only was the food delicious but my server, Teresa, was excellent! She was very knowledgeable about Celiac and ensured me she and everyone in the kitchen would take every precaution to ensure I did not get sick. I had the Gluten Free Pasta Woozie and it was amazing! I definitely would recommend this place; I will be coming back!
