I ordered the gluten free pasta with spicy marinara. I was assured they take every precaution to avoid cross contamination. When I received my meal, there was regular spaghetti mixed into the bottom of my noodles. Unfortunately I had already taken three bites before I saw them. Definitely do not recommend if you have Celiac or a wheat allergy. Their "precautions" clearly didn't do much

Very limited gf options, only 2 entrées on menu. Too pricey for a small bowl of pasta with watery sauce. No gf bread. No choice of noodles.

Only gluten free pasta available was spaghetti. Kinda sad about that, After reading other reviews. Fortunately for myself it's only a sensitivity not allergy. But heads up. Food was good. Service lacking. Maybe cause it a Monday night. Idk

I was very nervous to keep eating because it was “too good to be GF”, but it checked out as SAFE for this Celiac! I think this was called the Sizzler with chicken

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.

4 Celiacs in my family. We go here about once monthly. Great options! Nobody has ever gotten sick. Dedicated kitchen space and utensils, pots and pans. So refreshing!

You'd never know you're eating GF at this place! They have some decent options for pasta, but their Alfredo isn't GF. Their house salad (minus croutons) is crave-worthy. They even had GF chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream last time I went. I never feel limited when I come here. Plenty of vegan & GF options, too!

Way too expensive for what you're getting! But prices aren't listed on gluten free menu. Basically you can substitute pasta for veggies. The kids menu is grilled chicken and veggies. That's it. Not impressed!

This location frustrates me. They “sometimes” have gluten free pasta. It seems to just depend on who’s working. My server this evening went to check and see if they had the gluten free pasta today, and fortunately they did. I asked if there were any sauces or meats or anything else I could have, and he said red sauce, spicy marinara, lemon butter, or meat sauce. But no meats or proteins or anything other than the meat sauce. So I had gluten free pasta with meat sauce. It was fine. Not great, but not terrible either. Meh.

Excellent experience. I had a very knowledgeable and polite staff named Maria. I ate with a group and they brought my food separately. They also communicated to me that they would cook my pasta separately due to my allergy. They had great communication between the waitstaff and the servers. Generous portions and some more unique options than chain Italian style places. I had the artichoke pasta and it was excellent.

So many options and the food was delicious. I told them I was gluten-free and asked if I had an allergy. My plate was a different color than the others in my party, so I assume that was to signal to the kitchen to be careful. No complaints!
