    Worse dinning out experience ever! Had to wait for the pot to boil before the cook used the same tongs on my gf pasta as he did on my husband's gluten pasta. After an hour and fifteen minutes we left with his food in a bag and nothing for me.

    Ordered a pasta dish from the gluten free menu and half way through eating my pasta I found a normal pasta noodle in my food. Not safe

    Menu is not clearly marked on all GF options. I spoke to a manager who gave me confidence that they take good precautions to avoid cross contamination. When ordering, my server had no idea what contained gluten, he was unsure on meatballs and salad dressings and would say “I think” which doesn’t fly with a Celiac so I confirmed with a manager that what I got was safe to consume. (The meatballs do contain bread crumbs so don’t get them). I got the sizzler and it was VERY good, I was nervous that it wasn’t GF, I made my husband taste test against his and he couldn’t tell the difference in the GF noodles, the flavor was outstanding. I wish they had GF bread, even for a small fee, watching everyone else eat fresh bread before the meal was torture.

    Every time we had poor service and crummy food even before we were diagnosed as celiacs. So I'd never go there now.

    NOT celiac friendly. The waiter and kitchen were great but their menu is not true GF. I trusted reviews here and their menu and got sick immediately I had to leave my kids with their dad to finish eating so I could be home and be miserable. Later my husband checked the online allergy list and the items they gave me ( Caesar salad no croutons and Alfredo with Pene noodles that were in gf menu) both clearly say contain wheat but “not other gluten” I completely blame management and whoever does the menu, they need to be more aware and educated on what gluten is.

    RJ is a very knowledgeable server/manager. You do have to speak with a member of the management team to talk about the available options but this is definitely a great place to eat. I have eaten there at least 4 times from February 2018-March 2018 and have not gotten sick once. They even make a from scratch Alfredo sauce for gluten free. 👍

    They’ve changed their menu and don’t have a gluten free menu any longer. they are willing to prepare gluten free pasta or take gluten items off. however cross contamination is a possibility and they lack of knowledge about ingredients.

    Ate the gluten free pasta twice. Very good! But even after talking to waitresses each time and making sure that my food would be completely safe, I still got unsafe food. 1st day the kitchen staff brought a full gluten meal, then after eating 3 spoon fulls the waitress noticed it was the wrong pasta and took it from me. The manager came and offered me cake to say sorry... and still charged me full price... 2nd day, I told them what happened the 1st time and they said they would make sure that never happened again. I ate a great tasting meal, and half way through the bowl of pasta... I found 2 gluten noodles! I was so upset, and they just said sorry and felt bad, still chartered me full price, didn’t offer me anything to make it up to me. Later that day I puked for 6 hours. Will never eat there again, even though they have the only gluten free Alfredo I have found. And it’s good. It’s not worth it!

    Really good food. Good selection in gluten free menu. Wish they had more options that didn't include pasta edit. unfortunately the second time I went there they screwed my order three times. they included croutons in the salad and bread sticks in the order. I didn't even eat the food afraid they had screwed it also.

    Warning! No gluten free menu at this location (unlike others). Waitress clarified they are "gluten friendly" then she goes, "we have a gluten free penne pasta that can be subbed for any of our pasta dishes and that's about it" with an attitude that didn't make me feel too good about not getting glutened... we left.

    Wonderful food! They have a handful of options, most offered with pasta. Initially I was told they ran out of gf pasta earlier in the evening but my waiter (Casey) ran back to check and thankfully they had some! He offered to have the chicken scallopini over red potatoes if they didn’t have the pasta. Also had the Gf bread offering prior to main course which was their gf pizza crust with a garlic-cheese on top. I was a little saddened the online menu states they have a flourless chocolate cake but they do not. As an extremely sensitive celiac, I haven’t had any issues and even ate leftovers the next day.

    We ate at Carinos in Pigeon Forge this month while on vacation. I had a good GF experience two years ago at this same restaurant so we decided to go back again. They have a gluten free menu with several GF pasta dishes to choose from along with several other GF items. They also have a GF kid's menu. My GF pasta was delicious and my husband said his gluten-filled pasta was great too. Nice atmosphere - unless they sit you back by the kitchen which is very noisy with servers, cooks, and pots and pans.

    The chicken caesar salad was great! I was at a restaurant that was supposed to have a gluten-free menu but did not. While my party enjoyed their food, I ordered and went to pick up the aforementioned salad. A lovely smelling loaf of bread (not GF) came with the order which justified the price. Quality taste

    Ate off the gluten free menu. Potato Soup, gluten free pasta, marinara, and Italian sausage (which I was assured was gluten free). Became very ill shortly after eating. I am sure something contained gluten or came in contact with gluten. Be careful eating!

    Zero stars for this place. Poorly staffed. Coffee machine broken for days but no effort to fix it. GlutenFree salad came out of the kitchen with croutons. Wait staff was sure "all our bread is gluten free" which of course was completely inaccurate. In fact they have no gluten free bread. Stay away.

    I'm super thankful for their huge GF selection (and my pasta tasted so good that I actually thought I was going to be glutened until I ended up having no bad reactions!). The bar couldn't make the first few drinks I tried to order (they even said margaritas can't be gluten free...definitely not true) so DEFINITELY ASK before you assume your drink is safe! They must use mixes or swap with cheaper liquor?
