Nothing gluten free. Staff was inattentive took 10 min to acknowledge us after waiting at the greeting counter. They never heard of gluten free, that person asked another worker they never heard of it then they went asked the manager took 10 min and said they might be able to do a grilled chicken with veggies. I did not feel safe to eat anything.

The staff and manager know absolutely nothing about gluten, which sauces contain it, or how much risk there is of cross-contamination. We left without ordering.

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.

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
