Got glutened. Found a regular pasta noodle in my GF pasta :(. Very disappointing after being reassured the chefs knew their stuff. Another GF friend also got glutened here on a different occasion. Never going back.

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.

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.

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.
