    Food was amazing. First time I was able to order chicken Parmesan in years. Generous portions, plenty of leftovers for an additional meal. Staff is friendly and well informed.

    The gluten free food here was wonderful! So many entree options, including hard to find chicken parm, ravioli, and stuffed shells! They offered perfectly cooked pasta and wonderful dessert options! So good and the staff was very knowledgeable.

    Amazing. I haven’t had chicken parm this good in probably 10 years. So good I was a little apprehensive. I opted for the cheese ravioli side option, also great. I’ll bet there was 3/4 of a pound of chicken if not more. Not “cheap” but an excellent value. Easily two decent meals worth of chicken. Closer to four “responsible” portions.

    The owner (older man) is sooo nice and accomodating.He said he can make anything on the menu gluten free including ravioli and stuffed shells. I ended up getting a gluten free cheese steak pizza and it was really good! I will definitely be going back soon!

    Service was spectacular. Place looks small and dark but worth it. Semi separate prep areas. Arturo will venture to make anything GF...even if not on menu. We ordered GF calamari and he made it with rice flour fried in separate pot. Just specify the severity to avoid cc as much as possible. Will def. go again.

    The food was amazing! Super celiac friendly! The staff was off the charts friendly and accommodating. I asked many questions and they were very friendly answering every question. They also asked questions to my questions to help make sure I had a safe visit! Such a fun place to eat at while on vacation.

    Wow! I felt so normal eating here! Amazing bruschetta topping (served with no bread) chicken and rice soup and eggplant parmigiana with a side of ziti. It was delicious!!! The owner is Arturo and he is from Italy and so nice and made sure that I had a great dining experience. The waitress was so nice, too. What a pleasure to eat out and feel normal. I will be back!!!! Awesome g free choices and I had no reaction whatsoever. 5 stars!!!

    So, so great! The chicken parm was delicious. The people there are so friendly and kind. We only come once a year, but the 3 1/2 hour drive is worth it!

    I had gf cheese ravioli and salad with their house balsamic dressing. Both were delicious. It is hard to find gluten free cheese ravioli, and theirs was delicious. I didn't have a reaction at all. I plan on eating there again.

    You people are nuts. This guy invented gluten free and has a dedicated kitchen to make gluten free meals. My wife has celiac disease and eats here regularly we never had a problem and the food is excellent!

    I ordered the gluten free pizza and it was like eating cardboard covered with sandpaper. I have had much better gluten free crusts at other places.

    We have been coming here for a few years now and never had a problem. Food was always good and my bf who is gluten free never had any bad reactions. We went there last week and he got a gluten free pizza...next day he was sick as a dog. It's been almost a week and he's still suffering. This place is good but be careful. Not sure if going during the lunch rush had something to do with it.

    Not a dedicated gluten-free facility, but very celiac friendly. Both the owner and the wait staff are very knowledgeable and accommodating. Lots of options. I had turkey chili followed by chicken Parmesan and spinach raviolis. They were delicious. I didn't get the least bit sick, and I get sick from very small amounts of cross-contamination. I also had the gluten-free dessert, some kind of layer cake. It was pretty dry, but everything else was spectacular!

    This was the first time I was able to enjoy ravioli since I was first diagnosed with CD 8 months ago! The raviolis accompanied my chicken Parmesan meal and the entire dish was fabulous! The chicken was perfectly breaded and cooked. It tasted just as good as gluten filled chicken Parmesan if not better!! I would recommend this place and am planning on going back the next time I'm in the area!

    Absolutely the best GF Italian restaurant I have been to. My sister gets sick everyplace that "claims" to have GF. No issues and so delicious :) & for the rest of the family, delicious glutinous options. We will be going back.

    The owner is very knowledgable about gluten free and the gf menu is huge. They cook everything separately in the kitchen. I've had eggplant Parm, spinach raviolis, gf pizza, and penne in a vegetable Alfredo sauce. All amazing!!
