While I myself don’t have gluten allergies, my girlfriend is celiac, and if you are reading this and have similar dietary needs then stay away from anything containing their roast beef for the sandwiches. When they dip the sandwiches they use the same tray of ajus and beef as they use to put on the sandwiches which means all of the beef is contaminated with gluten. They are not knowledgeable about this as I told them there was a severe gluten allergy. Stay safe !

The naked bowls are amazing! Love the beef and sausage combo. Only time I've had a problem here is with the gf pitas. They absolutely do not consider cross contamination with those - beware!

I’ve always craved the food at Buona. Within the past few months, I noticed that they now offer a GF pita bread. I get it with the grilled chicken breast. It does need a bit of sauce like Mayo or Ranch, etc. So good.

I ordered a hot Italian beef sandwich and a hot dog. They were both served on a pita not on bread. I didn't ask if they dip in the same sauce as they do the glutinous bread. It was good but the pita doesn't absorb the au jous like bread would. If I got it again I would order the "gravy" on the side so I could dip it.
