One of my favorite places to get gluten free pasta. I always order the pasta con broccoli. The GF noodles are penne. They have live music on the patio most weekend nights too.

Got really sick within minutes of eating. Did stress allergy and they must be careful. Had been hit or miss in past if I had a reaction. Will not eat there again.

Celiac friendly?

Before going gluten free, I ate here a lot and it was always good. But the gluten free dishes are horrible. The pasta falls apart and you're left with a bowl of marinara/noodle mush. They used to have good gluten meatballs but got rid of them.

GF pasta was not good.

Please do not go here , found regular pasta noodles in my 'gluten free' entree. When I spoke to the owner about it hoping to educate him and his staff he was clueless about what gluten free really means . He did not know the pasta could not be cooked in the same water as regular pasta. Buyer beware.

Candicci's serves gluten-free penne pasta and has gluten-free pizza crust available. You can also order any of the chicken dishes without the breading. I was informed that the pasta and pizza are prepared in separate water and location than the regular food. I ended up with a chicken dish and GF pasta and enjoyed it! No bad reaction.They also have great house wine!
