    We did not have a great experience. Two celiacs in our family ended up getting sick.

    We have eaten here several times since we moved to Brighton in February. The restaurant has recently changed owners, and while I really miss the sweet older former owner, I have been told that they are trying to make everything on the menu have a gluten free option. I have not been super impressed with the desserts but everything else is delicious. They even made gluten free bread for us last time!

    very nice gf menu, with dishes i haven't found gf anywhere else! i had gnocci, and it was delicious, especially impressed by the sauce! and as another reviewer stated, so many gf dessert options! i had the flourless cake, shared with my husband (who does not have celiacs). it was one of the best desserts i have had out in a long while. took a star off bc: ambience is sort of dismal, and the soup/salad were not the greatest first impression to make either. chef is adorable and chatted with us, very kind and knowledgeable! service was top notch, and overall yes we will be back! can't wait to try the lasagna, the word is it rocks. :)

    Best GF Italian restaurant I've been to in a long time. The owner's daughter is gluten intolerant so they are always trying new recipes that are gluten free. During the 2 weeks in town, I tried most all of them! The gluten-free lasagna is awesome. The GF gnocchi was great. The chicken marsala and the chicken piccata were tender and flavorful. My friend had the GF spaghetti with grilled chicken and their homemade marinara sauce. the marinara is the best I have ever tasted. To make this restaurant more awesome, they have one of the largest selections of GF desserts I have ever seen at a restaurant. GF desserts I enjoyed are GF tiramisu, GF lemon bars, GF chocolate mousse, GF raspberry pana cotta, GF strawberry cheesecake, GF chocolate flour less cake, GF dump cake, and a GF cream cheese brownie. And...there were still GF desserts I didn't have time to try like their creme Brule and few other items. I can't wait to return! As for cross contamination, they make every effort to prevent the risk of gluten-containing foods from contacting gluten-free foods. they take it very seriously.

    We had a wonderful meal. The owners both came and checked on us. Service was excellent and food was amazing. We will be back!

    Absolutely delicious! Best GF pasta and pizza I've had so far! The GF tiramisu tasted like lemon cake though.

    Food is good, what I got to eat. The owner stood at my table for 45 minutes talking about the kitchen. I really just wanted to take my Dad out to lunch... :-/

    Everything is made fresh. Many options. Everything I ate was delicious. Meat Lasagna and tiramisu was great. 1000% better than other nearby choices for gluten free Italian!

    Large gluten free selection! More than what is printed on their menu. I had a lovely meat lasagna and a cherry coconut desert that was super delicious! They had lots of dishes and deserts to choose from. Friendly staff =]

    The gluten free lasagna was good and they even had gluten free deserts (but I didn't get a chance to try one).
