Good, have gluten free options clearly indicated on menu. But I'm not sure if they have a dedicated fryer.

I ordered gluten free four cheese pasta. After I had eaten half of the dish, I noticed there was a different shaped noodle mixed in and realized it had been cross contaminated. I was up all night in pain and DO NOT recommend eating here if you have a gluten allergy. I was very disappointed because I loved this restaurant before I found out I had Celiac disease.

The last two times I've ordered from here my salads came with remnants of croutons in them as if they'd been added and then taken out, even after I expressly told them I had an allergy. The most recent time I also got gf pasta and got horribly sick afterwards. Be forewarned ordering gf food here may come at a risk to your health.

Ordered pasta (garlic something) and 2 hours later I was throwing up and NOT FEELING WELL!

I have ordered GF before and I've been fine, so I'm guessing it is a hit and miss.

I won't be back though, not worth the risk :(

I love this place. They change their gloves and have a separate area. They only have like 4 cheesecakes that are gluten free but there are plenty of options on their menu. I’ve never had an allergic reaction there
