Called ahead to make sure the pasta was cooked in separate water but was very disappointed when waitress informed us that they couldn’t accommodate.

The service was super chill, the atmosphere is very relaxing, and my boyfriend (Celiac) had absolutely no problems asking our server about gluten free options. She was very knowledgeable and did not hesitate to offer gf penne pasta in place of ANY pasta dishes. He for the gf ravioli and loved it! No tummy problems!

We tried the GF Parpardelle and GF Ravioli and both were delicious! The texture of the noodles was outstanding. Would definitely eat here again!

One of my favorite spots in OC. Their gluten free pasta with braised lamb is amazing. They also recently added a gluten free ravioli that was incredible.

They have gf pasta, but that still doesn't leave very many options. The pasta with meat sauce, however, was simple, yet amazing!
