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. 👍

Horrible gluten-free menu, and not child-friendly at all. They only offer one gluten-free soup and they were out of it. if If you have Celiac disease or are gluten intolerant, I would strongly discourage you from going to this restaurant. 2013, and they STILL don't offer a gluten free pasta. Ridiculous.

It depends on the time of day you go here if you can trust it :/.. I've had the chicken Marsala and had no problems, it was amazing. When I went during a busy night the waiter brought both gluten free meals with noodles. I reiterated that we were gluten free and the noodles were gluten. The waitress had no idea what I was talking about So I had to explain it. They then rushed our meals to make them again and they tasted horrible. We refused to pay for the meals, paid for our salad and drinks and sent the food back. I have mixed emotions towards this resturaunt now.

Absolutely the best gf pasta I've ever had. Kiddo had spaghetti, I had a grilled chicken thing with lemon/olive oil and veggies... OMG. Fantastic.

Previous review: I ate here twice for lunch in past 6 months with no problems. Had spicy ramano chicken and shrimp with GF pasta and house salad no croutons. Chicken shrimp dish is very flavorful. Took my own GF bread. Update: visited again a year later and got same thing with no problems.

Ordered the gluten free pasta and got sick. The restaurant was understaffed and we waited over an hour for the food. The food came out mixed up which is a problem because only certain items were ordered gluten free.

I told the girl on the phone I had to have gluten free wings. Gluten allergy. I get home already took a bite and realize they are wingless and look breaded. I called to ask the manager and they have gluten. I’m sick for three days. And when I ordered I told him I had two separate orders on two separate cards and I get there and they are charged on one card. I think three different people make mistakes here. The manager was nice and said she would remove the cost of one of my orders. That’s simply not enough when you’re sick for days. My throat actually swells from it. Gluten could kill some people

All pasta dishes (except for things like ravioli), can be prepared with gluten free penne. They also have a gluten free pizza which is placed on a separate tray in the oven. I had the pizza with no adverse reactions.
