While staff were knowledgeable And the rest of my party enjoyed their meal, both my starter salad and roast chicken dishes failed my Nima gluten test. Can’t recommend for Celiacs.

Outstanding service. They have a gluten free penne pasta that can be substituted in their pasta dishes. They also have gluten free crackers. The waitress was knowledgable and made recommendations for appetizers and also suggested things they would omit for the salads. It was a great dining experience and a fun place for dinner/drinks.

Had the braised short ribs with gluten free pasta twice now. So tasty and I haven't gotten sick!

Server was knowledgeable and even warned me they didn’t have a dedicated GF frier before I asked. Food was delicious as well! I got one of their GF pastas :)

The food is good, and the waitstaff is friendly.

Unfortunately, due to...who knows what....they put breadcrumbs all over my gluten free pasta. Their breadcrumbs are not immediately identifiable as such, so I thought it was crunchy stuff. Halfway through the dish I asked (I had a feeling) and the horrified waitress whisked away my dish.

A great Italian rustic restaurant. They do not have a separate gf menu but the staff is very knowledgeable. They double check with the kitchen if you order a particular dish. House made gf flatbreads, and polenta is MADD in house from scratch - it's gf and delicious. Aioli made with gf soy sauce. The put on a separate pot of oil to fry my croquettes. I'm a fan of the grilled octopus and date salad appetizers. My favorite entrees are the chicken and the osso buco. And a great wine selection.
