Very nice GF dining experience. Separate Gluten Free menu with appetizers, pasta, salads, entrees (chicken, pork, fish), and pizza. Everything is well prepared. Knowledge staff and the outdoor dining area is pleasant.

The service was excellent, the food-delicious! But my husband, a celiac,had a full reaction to the meal. They assured him they had careful preparation, he ordered from a gf menu, but something went wrong. To answer the question that pops in my head, “what did he eat the rest of the day?” He is actually extremely cautious and had eaten only his tried and true packaged food the rest of the day.

This is one of my favorite restaurants and I was very pleased to know that they have a gluten-free menu. I recently found out that I am intolerant to gluten and it has been hard to find good menus to choose from. They have a really good gluten-free bread that looks like a pita bread. And a big selection in the gluten-free menu.

I’m surprised by the bad reviews- our server was excellent and very knowledgeable. They had a good gf menu. He brought out separate gf bread and even poured separate dipping oil so I wouldn’t have to share. He was just very careful which was refreshing.
