One of my favorites! Good gluten free menu, and never had any issues getting sick from anything I’ve tried!

Save yourself a trip. This is the worst Italian meal that I have ever had.

The pasta was overcooked, the veal tasteless and drowning in sauce. My husband had the chicken vesuvio and it was barely edible.

I truly wished that I stayed home and cooked.

Horrible experience. Rude treatment. Zero stars. Absolutely no help from server or hostess/owner regarding ingredients so I could safely choose something. If you want a lecture on having celiac, if you want to be yelled at and if you want nothing to eat, this is your place. I was told I should have called ahead and asked, and I HAD done that.

I am a severe celiac. I came to this restaurant because it seemed to understand what that means. sadly, they do not. I was told I was given gluten-free penne with gluten-free meat sauce. I began swelling up within 5 minutes of eating. the waitress did state before I ate that the noodles were boiled in the same pot that the regular noodles were however given my reaction, both my husband and I doubt I even received gluten-free noodles at all. I simply can't risk being exposed to gluten so I can't afford to give them a second chance.
