The head chef spent nearly ten minutes in the phone and in person going over ingredients for making a steak salad gluten and dairy free including dressings. My girlfriend is gluten, dairy and has multiple other allergies. He was so kind and never once made me feel like an inconvenience. We will definitely be going here again.

The menu was clearly marked with what can be made gluten free- but the waitress said they are getting updated menus soon as they have more available. They were very accommodating.

I ate at this location on August 23rd, 2018. Their menu has several items which are clearly marked 'GF' including gluten-free pastas which they prepare in a separate area from all other pastas. I had a salmon salad and found it to be really tasty and did not get sick. My one complaint was that I wish they actually offered a separate gluten free menu so that I wouldn't have to see all their other pasta dishes that I can't eat. :-(

They had a section of all gluten free. I needed lactose free as well and they easily accommodated my needs. I'll be back!!

NOT CELIAC FRIENDLY. DON'T TRUST THEM. NO GLUTEN FREE PASTA!

We went specifically because our daughter (celiac) wanted pasta. The server, and then the manager, confirmed that they cook the gluten-free pasta in the same water as the traditional pasta! Crazy but true. The manager then rudely and defiantly fed us some b.s. that the water temp keeps the pasta gluten free and they did not have room for a pot of dedicated water. Smaller restaurants are capable of doing it, why not them? "Gluten transfers to gluten-free pasta when cooked in shared pasta cooking water." - ScienceDirect

I ate there last evening. They did not have a gf menu, but a few items were marked that they could prepare gf. I chose the shrimp scampi. It was prepared with gf rotini, the only gf pasta they had. It was delicious. The dish came out with 2 pieces of non-gf garlic crostini. If you're concerned about cross contamination, I'd avoid this place. The only dessert they had that could be prepared gf was vanilla Gelato!

AWFUL! I got the chopped salad which I was told would be gluten free. Not only did I find a bug in my food but had an awful stomach ache after. the staff and chef were rude as well. Quality has gone down tremendously lately.

If I could give it a 0, I would, but I can't, so I give it a 1. They forgot to even give me my food after over an hour of waiting as the rest of my table ate :( the pasta is bland and worse than some of the box pastas I buy from the store. Could not accommodate for an egg allergy and made us pay $8 for lettuce and Parmesan cheese.

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.
