    Went for lunch because I read they had GF options. The place was empty (should've been a sign.) I was really excited to see that they had GF paninis, so I ordered one. After placing my order, the waitress came back to tell me that they were out of the bread. I ordered a blue cheese salad without croutons and balsamic dressing. The salad came with parmessan and blue cheese dressing. My friend's Greek salad was missing olives. Service was slow, food was ok, and not going back. I was very disappointed and starving by dinner time.

    GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS EVERYWHERE!! Ok.. So there are a few pizza places now with gluten-free pizza, but most are criminally overpriced for what you get. Most Italian places say "ooh... Gluten-free? Sucks to be you. We have salad...and two gluten free options." And they suck. That won't happen to you here. The owner understands GF concerns. Don Vito's has a WIDE variety of selections. Anything with a GF next to it on the menu (which is most of them) has a gluten-free version, and they don't bleed you out the veins for it. The prices are fair and all I can say is WOW. I can't speak for anyone's experience there. It's not fancy, the d├ęcor is bare bones... but we've been there 3 times now and they have really taken care of us. We've had 3 different pizza's there -- all gluten free -- and they have knocked my socks off. The Mambo was piled high with toppings..and was very filling. The Mushroom Mushroom Mushroom had garlic sauce instead of marinara. It was GORGEOUS. We've had the gluten-free antipasti, and I should have remembered the owner is from New York and asked him to cook it a wee bit longer. Al dente is traditional Italian style, but I'm a bit of a wimp. Still, we cleaned the plate. That tells you we enjoyed it! No milky stuff when we went... We've also had the Portobello Toscano.. which is... well... WOW. We got one to go, but it's not nearly as good reheated. It's a must, though. GREAT flavor! I very much appreciate being able to have more than 3 choices (try 30+!!) for gluten-free food, and I like that they "get it" there. Nobody rolls their eyes, or says "gluten free is just a fad", or anything else like that. There are PLENTY of restaurants in Flower Mound that do just that. (Guess they don't want my business). I'm grateful for their attitude -- and their selection.

    Just found out about this restaurant tucked into a shopping center; they indicated it's been open two months. Attentive waitstaff and extensive GF menu of pastas and paninis. For this first visit, i ordered the meatballs appetizer that came in a light marinara sauce with a side of toasted gf bread; very tasty. For my entree, i ordered the gf fettuccine Alfredo w/ chicken. It might have been good but the kitchen didn't adequately drain the noodles which made the sauce basically a milk consistency. It was probably good but too watered down to taste properly. We will be back to try other selections.
