The staff seemed to care about making sure the dishes were made properly and made sure to double check which items were gluten free. We ordered over the phone and the lady who took our order was super friendly and made sure to check the gluten free menu to double check that the sauce on the dish I ordered was safe. I don't know how extensively they train their staff on gluten free protocols, but this experience gave me hope!

They have a whole gluten free menu at the restaurant, but it isn't posted online unfortunately. They can switch out the pasta on most dishes for gluten free pasta and for a lot of dishes that is all that needs to be done to make it gluten free. I got the Chicken Scaloppini with gluten free pasta and I couldn't tell the difference from regular pasta! It was a bit softer, but the taste was the same to me. Very happy with my dish and I can't wait to try more! They also offer a gluten free flourless chocolate lava cake and it was good, but extremely chocolaty! Which is ok if you like that sort of thing!

The staff was very friendly and made sure to help us navigate the gluten free options. We had to call in our order instead of ordering online because the online ordering doesn't list gluten free as an option. The staff we spoke with seemed to be well informed as to what had gluten or how to found out if they didn't know.

Delicious! They can make any of their pasta dishes gluten free, including the sauce! The only downfall is the only gluten free pasta they have is spaghetti

They offer one type of gluten free pasta (penne). The waiter was clueless about gluten free ingredients or cross contamination in their dishes and had to take back two dishes we had ordered. Finally got the manager who knew something. Ended up having a burger with lettuce wrap and a chicken dish with gf pasta. In the end they were very apologetic and comped us the meal.

Ordered the angel hair artichoke pasta, asked server to have it made with the GF spaghetti pasta instead. 15 minutes into the meal had a very bad reaction. Not sure if normal pasta was used or it was cross-contamination. Definitely not eating here again.

Walked in the door and the manager said that they had gf noodles, but he had worked in food service since 1993 and had never heard of cross contamination or that gluten could be in sauces or spices etc. Used to go here a long time ago with no issues, not sure what happened to the staff training lately. Didn't stay due to the lack of knowledge.

They had a very nice gf menu with multiple choices. I opted for a shrimp scampi pasta dish using gf spaghetti. It was wonderful! My waitress was very knowledgeable about my needs, and seemed to communicate that well with the kitchen staff.
