    Great options, but the gluten free pasta is gummy and just wasn't a good texture. I wasn't impressed with the sauce either, it just wasn't worth the price in my opinion. If we try it again I may update, but right now I wouldn't choose to go there.

    Super knowledgeable staff, was able to direct me to amazing GF options and checked in throughout meal to ensure everything was to my liking - the chef even came out to recommend future options for me! It was awesome and SO YUMMY.

    We ordered the GF Ravioli and the 4 Cheese Pasta, both were GF and I didn't get sick. Food was good, not a huge GF menu but enough variety.

    The bread was amazing but I ordered the gf ravioli and I’m relatively certain it was not gluten free. I was so sick for over 24 hours. Maybe it was just the extras, but I have not gotten that sick in a very long time.

    Great place for folks with celiac. Separate GF menu, warm loaf of GF bread. Chef Vince comes to the table to make sure all is okay with the GF order. Can't tell you last time I had ravioli, it was delicious! Large servings, you won't leave hungry. Bar staff is also knowledgeable about GF drinks.

    My son got sick after notifying the reception staff and having an extensive conversation about cross contamination and celiac disease with waitress. Disappointed.

    WOW! Great food, not often we go a place there are too many options and I can't decide what I want. Dipping bread w/cheese and oil. Tasted like Against The Grad french bread. Older crowd, felt very young tonight.

    The GF bread and dipping sauce is amazing. One of the things my partner and I miss most about eating out. Staff very knowledgeable and friend. The GF chicken parm was some of the best I ever had! We will be visiting again. Fabulous!

    First of all, the rumors are true! They indeed WILL bring you gf bread when you tell them you are gf. That, to me, was such a huge thing!! In my FIVE years of gluten intolerance I have never experienced that! Our waitress was WONDERFUL, very patient and knowledgeable and willing to ask the kitchen a million things. Her name is Vera. Both these things would have been great alone but I had the penne bolognese and it blew my mind away!!!!! IT WAS TEN DOLLARS and there was so much that I have dinner for tonight. Since when does that happen when you eat gf at a restaurant!? They have a dedicated frier, gf buns for burgers or Chicken sandwiches, the aforementioned bread, a chocolate moose I couldn't enjoy bc it was to dairy free, and 2 or 3 pasta options. It was maybe the best gf dining experience I've had. This is a MUST if you are in Schaumburg or Chicago.

    We have eaten at Zeal's 5 times and each time Chef Vince, Chef Lauren and their staff have offered amazing service and concerns for our allergies. The Gluten-free and Vegan menus offers a variety of options including to-die-for pasta sauces. Recommend the Lollipop Lambchops, Cheeseburger with Gf Bun, and new fave Ravioli. Having warm bread with dipping oil and Gf Chocolate Cake are rare, wonderful treats. Love the restaurant ambiance.
