Went and asked for gluten free and waitress was unsure and ended up getting extremely sick from gluten.

Was handed an alergen menu at the door, but it was 7 years old. Found no mention in either menu of their GF pizza or pasta. However, the waiter knew, knew how to treat a celiac order, and was very helpful and accommodating.

Food is good, staff is well trained. We like to eat here a lot. Weekends has a cheap lunch deal 11 to 4 where you get soup and an entree.

I loved going here! they had so many fun drinks (I had a cream soda, which was refillable once). I had a pasta skillet, which wasn't my favorite, but there are still a lot of pastas and pizzas to try... and then I had an amazing chocolate molten cake with ice cream for dessert! it was so nice to have so many courses available (and tasty!)

Gluten-free spaghetti sauce is way too oily. Noodles were extremely grainy and tasted like eating uncooked wheat. Gluten-free desert also very grainy and they add way too much sweetness to try and cover up the texture.

I was happy to see they now have a gluten free menu with gluten free pasta and pizza dishes. I opted for the pizza because I was told they don't always change out the water when they do gluten free pasta so there could be some cross contamination with the regular pasta, not sure how this is ok. When the MANAGER brought out the food he just called it pizza so I asked if it was gluten free just to be safe. He said "uh, yeah." Unfortunately, I ate it and it was definitely not gluten free! It made me so sick! I won't be back since even the manager doesn't care enough to double check food safety.

The restaurant does have a gluten free menu including pizza and 2 types of pasta. We haven't had any issues with food preparation.

The only downside is that they start every meal by delivering a loaf of bread wrapped in a wax paper bag. Even if you ask for a GF menu. Hasn't caused problems so far but unnecessary.

The GF menu available online is not all the same as at the Fargo Location. They said all they can do is substitute vegetables for pasta on a dish... but I cannot understand why two pieces of broccoli and a handful of mushrooms was considered a substitute for a full plate of pasta... I didn't get sick, but then again I barely got food at all : (

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.
