I usually avoid Italian completely, but based off the reviews here, we went. My whole family enjoyed gf meals and I felt safe. Polenta fries were a delicious indulgence. My son loved the gf pizza. Lamb shank and risotto was great. Beet and steak salad with polenta croutons was delicious. Perfect location before a game or concert. Hoping to visit again for live jazz.

Atmosphere is inviting and modern. The food was delicious. Server was aware of celiac. They have a separate frier for the polenta fries.

Nothing but wonderful things to say about this place! The servers were extremely knowledgeable and were able to answer all of my questions. The spaghetti carbonara and the polenta fries are heavenly!

Menu online shows items that are gluten friendly. The polenta croutons are made in a shared fryer and therefore not celiac safe. Salmon salad without the croutons was delicious. The chocolate torte was great!

Good selection of gluten free items. GF pasta or pizza does have an up charge. I personally a celiac and 2 others at our table had the risotto, It was fabulous. As an appetizer we had fried polenta fries~ delicious. Incredible atmosphere and great food. No issues~

One of the best salads I have had in a long time. Probably in the top 10. It was balanced and very fresh tasting. The gorgonzola dressing wasn’t too heavy and complimented the salad well. The presentation was beautiful and the chicken was surprisingly great. I had a side of honey dill to dip the chicken in and it was perfect. I would say you have to add parmesan, cracked black pepper, and the chili flakes for a full amazing effect. They were friendly and took allergies seriously. I wish I tried the steak salad too, as it sounded amazing. Beware they will tell you the fryer is safe, but it is not. They fry everything in the same fryer, but gluten free in a section of it. Do not order fried food.

We have been going here since it first opened but now am trying the gluten free options. I had the spaghetti carbonara with gf pasta. The noodles were rotini. It was fantastic. I also had the Ceasar salad with the polenta croutons and they were also excellent. Great atmosphere and great dining.

One of my favourite places to eat! Awesome GF options, including pizza, polenta fries and croutons, and various pastas and standard Italian dishes.
