Gf options but I have a secondary food allergy that was also acknowledged by the server and then ignored by the kitchen - the item showed up on my plate. Manager and server were very apologetic and remade the dish but imo if one allergy warning is missed it may not be safe to order expecting gf here either.

Small GF menu, but celiac friendly. Wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

Simple GF menu- 3 salad options, 3 pasta options, 3 grilled entrées (steak, chicken and salmon). Cross contamination issues are evident and are disclosed on the menu. Waitress stated the crème brûlée was GF but went to double check. When she came back she did say it the crème brûlée was stored next to chocolate cake (and she did not recommend ordering it for that purpose). The restaurant is upfront and honest about CC. This is why they got 2 stars still not great.I had a horrible reaction to the "GF" Brio pasta. The worst part was it didn't even taste that great to begin with. Mediocre at best. I would not recommend this to Celiacs, it maybe OK for people who are not super sensitive and or gluten intolerant.

Sorry, but can’t recommend!! The menu marked things that could be made gluten free, but my stomach begs to differ. I confirmed three times that the pasta I was eating was GF, but maybe it was cross contaminated at the LEAST. My stomach and heart are throbbing!! At least avoid their pasta!

My friend is one of the managers here and he has told me all the steps they take to ensure there is no cross contamination. They offer salads, entree & pasta dishes. I had pasta brio and a Caesar salad for dinner. We started with a caprese salad app & finished with gelato for dessert. I wasn’t even slightly sick afterwards.

My daughter Ordered a salad with no Croutons and informed the waiter she is celiac. Waiter understood her condition, but didn’t write the order down. Salad came out with croutons. The waiter had the salad remade and my daughter believes they used the same chicken that was on the first salad. She has been sick the last few days after eating at Brio.

The food was outstanding but the service was a joke. We had Miranda and she came super infrequently, couldn’t answer any questions- I had to get the host to ask the kitchen questions that I had....but they have GF pasta and it’s delicious.

Maybe it’s due to COVID-19 that they had 90% of the gluten free menu crossed out...so I had a grand total of 4 options for food on the entire menu. I got the pasta brio and it wasn’t bad but wasn’t great. The waiter was awful though. Took forever to get to order and on top of that he kept looking around in a panic even though they weren’t very busy at all? 😂
