Very good italian most items can be made gluten free. Ask for the GF bread to start, it's a little extra.

They seemed somewhat knowledgeable but I got my first red flag when they said they couldn’t guarantee that my meal would be completely GF. I asked if they use a separate area, wash the pan, different water, clean utensils ect. The waitress said yes to everything- but my meal was indeed contaminated as I tested it and it came up gluten found.

There was only one item on the whole menu marked GF. That was the $5 GF bread. Which was delicious and thankfully filling. They said they could do any pasta GF. I asked for the shrimp scampi. It looked yummy, but I was not able to eat it as gluten was detected in this dish. I’m so thankful for my Nima device!

I have celiac and my experience here was amazing. The staff was all very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable about my allergy. They made gluten free bread for me, no cross contamination. They also showed me the options on the menu that could be made gluten free. There are plenty of options and it was delicious. The price is also great, we spent $50 between my boyfriend and I, two dinners and sorbet dessert. It was surprising for such a nice restaurant. I suggest making a reservation ahead of time, it’s a very popular place! We waited 45mins without a reservation but it was so worth it!

I’m thankful I ordered the $5 GF bread as it tested GF and tasted great. Everyone in our party of 7 agreed that it was better than their bread too!  However, my main GF dish had gluten! 😣

My daughter and I have Celiac and had a great meal here. When we arrived I asked the horses about GF- she said they definitely could do Gf pasta and some other items, but for celiac not to eat the pizza or GF bread- they are cooked in their pizza oven which is a shared surface. Don was our server and he was fantastic!! When we sat down he checked that we wanted GF pasta, he went to have the kitchen start a fresh pot of water. I also don’t eat dairy, so he was able to help modify the clam appetizer to be GF/DF. Our pasta was fantastic and the other non GF family enjoyed their meal as well. Would definitely go back!!

Great food with lots of gluten free options. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful when choosing menu items. They even had gluten free pizza crust that you can have away the start of your meal with their yummy dipping sauce.

This restaurant does an excellent job accommodating our needs. Separate pots/colanders for gluten free pasta. They made a special cream sauce without flour. The risotto is amazing. Met another Celiac while dining and she loves coming here. I saw another review with unfortunate food quality, but that must have been an exception. The food is wonderful and we have high expectations!

Had a wide selection if gluten free pastas with gluten free sauces as well! The pasta I had tasted like left overs and the chicken was kinda hard and rubbery like they microwaved it.
