Authentic Italian food with GREAT Gluten Free options. Amazing Food! It was well worth the drive to this somewhat remote rural location. Take out or outdoor dining options.

We chose this because of good FMGF reviews but when we got there the chef threw up her hands to gesture at the open kitchen when the order-taker asked about Celiac, to say that she couldn’t guarantee anything. It was super-hot out and we were ravenous, so we risked it. Sat outside on a cute patio. But then a server brought me out normal bread “because it comes with the ravioli,” so I had to give it to my husband, which really destroyed my confidence (and made me question “the white sauce,” too. Guess we were living dangerously, so I ate it, with no bad results, but I certainly wouldn’t go there again.

Absolutely delicious! Fresh, hot out of the kitchen and perfectly balanced sauces. It was so good! The owner is celiac and completely understands. I enjoyed the spaghetti and meatballs. The entree comes with a salad and grilled flatbread. My husband is anaphylactic to all nuts and tree nuts and it was completely safe for him too with his entree, cheese tortellini with alfredo that was not gluten free. They have something for everyone! Entire staff there is terrific, welcoming, friendly and work as a team for a wonderful customer experience. They also have gluten free pasta and house marinara for sale and other imported items. We look forward to going there again!

When you see the staff step outside to cut the fresh herbs, you know it's got to be good! We took our Italian exchange student here and he was impressed! One of the owners or workers is GF herself and is very conciensious of the food. I had GF Butternut Squash Ravioli! SERIOUSLY!!!! I was pleasantly amazed! Hubby had flatbread topped with meat and veggies. YES, the flatbread is GF! My kids had panini's. I am celiac and I had no problems eating here. All their sandwiches can be made GF. And this is NOT just a "grab some commercial mass produced GF Bread from a package" stuff. I don't know if it is homemade, but it tastes like it. GF Pastas available, too.
