It was good food, definitely chain restaurant food, but very good in a gf comfort food sort of way. They had a very good selection of gf menu items. I will return!

The staff did an awesome job.

They have a great gluten free menu and the staff is more than happy to oblige. Ask for the gluten free menu at the hostess desk.

I basically had a chicken parm. (it had a different name)with grilled chicken This was the worst gluten free paste. They had lots of choices on the gluten free menu. I felt fine after eating what little I ate.

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

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!
