The restaurant itself was pretty good. My friend is celiac and asked for the gluten free pasta. She noticed there were two noodles on her pasta that were not gluten free, which I implied that her pasta may have been cooked with old pasta water from other pasta. Not the safest place for people with celiac.

Love their food, especially their tomato sauce! Our waitress let us know the gluten free options, including the gluten-free pasta. She was knowledgeable about how the food was prepared.

This is one of my few go to restaurants. I have loved the food since I was in my 20’s (I’m now 48) and have been able to eat there both pre and post celiac diagnosis. I always tell them my meal is GF and I warn them I’ll ask when it comes out. I have been served once something that we realized wasn’t the GF version but was saved by doing this. I have never gotten sick from eating there. The staff is super friendly and they remember us when we come in. The owners are attentive and care about the food served. Make sure you double check your food but I do that everywhere unless it’s truly an all GF establishment. Also, this is the only place I’ve found GF veal Parmesan and it’s AMAZING! And no one ever knows if the prime rib Au jus is GF but it is. My daughter gets GF a pasta and they clean everything thoroughly and use a fresh and separate pot to make it in. She tried Alfredo last time and it was delicious. Enjoy!

Staff was not Knowledgeable about Celiac and my shrimp came out with crackers on the palate. They just said not to eat them, I told them why this isn’t safe, I still don’t think they understood.

GF pasta was not very good. I have had it before in other restaurants so I know that it can be good. Also there was an extra $3.50 charge.
