So the adults are not celiac... might have been limited options if we were. My kids are celiac though and they just wanted the gf pasta. One got pesto and the others got red sauce. I confirmed that it was fresh pasta water and the server said something like- oh yeah all the gluten free is totally separate. No issues in my kids and I tried their dishes and they were quite good.

While the staff sounded knowledgeable, they did not double check the order when it came out and fed me regular pasta. Yikes!! I am a very sensitive Celiac and this did not end well for me.

Well, my 11 year-old celiac says this is the best food she has ever eaten. Not cheap, but if you're able to splurge on vacation, you should do it. Cocktails are oh so good, too😉

My daughter wanted a shrimp and pasta dish and they were able to create her something delicious and safe. Many of their pasta dishes can be made gluten free. They were knowledgeable and very willing to accommodate. The food was excellent!

The BEST celiac friendly place we have ever been to. From the manager to the waitstaff to the amazing food. Best meal we have had on our trip by far. I only wish they were in our home town. Class act all the way. Would recommend this place to anyone. WOW!!

Wow. Can't believe the first to review this place. Plenty of GF options on the menu and very knowledgeable servers. Their GF pasta is one of the best I've had, and they seem quite proud of it. (They had to source a good one to match their homemade regular pastas). It is so good I ordered a second entree. The duck sugo pasta is highly recommended. Honestly this is the best restaurant we ate at on our trip to San Diego.
