I will say that when told our server we were Celiac, he literally said "...but you're at an Italian restaurant. Are you really Celiac?" He was trying to protect us from his contaminated kitchen, but it was the weirdest conversation. There were options that were gluten free (server was pushing the meats hard). There was gluten free pasta. There was no pizza on the menu, and that's what I came for, so I was sad. Overall, though, kind servers and decent options!

Offers gluten free pizza dough that is unique and seems to be handmade. The staff was super friendly and they were quick to make our pizzas. The GF pizza itself was good; not the best we've ever had, but definitely not the worst!

Staff seems knowledgeable in gluten free foods. Gluten free pasta available. I was able to order straight off menu and they made it gluten free. My girls and I have celiac. They had shrimp scampi gluten free of course, 1 gave 5 stars the other gave it 4. I had chicken piccata, I gave it a 4. It was nice to be able to pick from the menu and they accommodated by making it gluten free. Friendly staff.
