Went here on a date and they were able to seat us immediately on a Saturday evening! They asked about allergies at the start of the meal and brought me GF bread separate from my partner who had her gluten filled bread. I felt good after and even ate leftovers the next day no problem!

This was some months ago but I called to confirm they had GF fried calamari, the day before my birthday. The lady on the phone said they did. I called the day of my birthday to place the order and, as we know to do when dealing with dietary restrictions, I double checked, I asked the man on the phone to confirm the fried calamari breading was gluten-free. He said it was not. I don’t know which of them was telling the truth for sure but I did not want to take that chance with my money and my stomach.

They do not have a dedicated fryer but do make an in-house GF fresh pasta.

The staff was amazing. Very knowledgeable and accommodating. No separate menu but they know what can be modified, which is a lot. Ate dinner there for restaurant week and will definitely go back. Props to the chef who not only made an excellent meal but was willing to alter anything.
