We ordered the Caprese and the Insalata DI Bietole directly from the chef and they were prepared by the. Eft who guaranteed that would be gluten free. Both tested positive for gluten using the Nima tester. If salads aren’t safe here I can’t imagine anything is.

Asked all the right questions. Server was knowledgeable. Said they cook separate and do everything they can to avoid cross. 3/4 of the way through I find a regular pasta noodle. The server immediately went to the manager who seemed genuinely upset. She said she brings them out personally to ensure its correct. They didn’t give us a bill at all for either meal and asked if we wanted anything else. Obviously passed. They gave us two free coupons also and left me with her card Incase I needed her for anything after. Didn’t seem like it happens often but I wanted everyone to know that it did.

2 kids with Celiac, hesitant with eating anywhere but home. Staff very knowledgeable. Waiter takes the order and the manager delivers it. Manager also discusses their safety practices before the food arrives. The meals were spectacular! No reaction whatsoever. Loved it and highly recommend it!!

Called ahead and got transferred straight to the head chef that went through their entire allergen protocol. The entire dish gets handled by one person in a separate kitchen area with separate pots and utensils and the gluten free food is expedited by the manager personally. Obviously it’s a bread heavy environment, but they were very cautious with what they could control and I kept the rest of my family a good arms length from my Celiac daughter and she didn’t have any reactions, plus she loved her pasta!

Although our server wasn't super proactive or knowledgeable about celiac, when I called ahead the hostess was very knowledgeable and walked me through options and ingredients. The tomato mozzarella appetizer and chicken entree was fantastic! Best part: I didn't get sick. (Their GF pasta is quinoa, corn, rice based... I didn't want to deal with asking for fresh water for cooking the noodles.).

Have eaten here several times with no illness or reaction. Just tell your server you’re gluten free, and the server will let the chef know. Ask for recommendations, as they will accommodate your request. I recommend the risotto with chicken (you can choose beef or shrimp) and asparagus, and the spumoni for dessert. Delicious food and great service!

Though it says “gluten free menu available” on the menu, I was told there this was not the case, but that GF pasta was available. I though the pasta was overcooked and over priced.

Separate gluten free menu that indicates which dishes are naturally gluten free and which ingredients need to be removed from other dishes to make them gluten free. The GF menu has lots of options from appetizers thru to 3-4 desserts (hello gelato!). Server said they use a separate area to prep food if you are Celiac (vs a dietary preference). Great food and great experience!

Great gluten free menu and definitely celiac friendly. I ordered a caprese appetizer and they knew to leave off the vinegar. I ordered the gluten free pasta, it was delicious. Will definitely come back.

My wife got really sick after eating here. I am fairly sure it was just an inattentive waiter, rather than capabilities of the kitchen. She was fine when she ate the same order once before.

Grown ups loved this place. The food was amazing. Kids were hoping for GF pizza, which was not on the menu. There are many many cheaper GF options within a block, and really good bubble tea and board games across the street.

I specified that I had celiac disease and would get severely ill if I ate gluten. Both the minestrone soup and the gluten free pasta came up as containing gluten on the Nima. The manager ignored the problem and charged me for both dishes even though I couldn't eat them.

They have a gluten-free menu with quite a few options, but the waiter made a comment about how the have a special kitchen protocol for people who *actually* have celiac disease, so I wonder how safe the kitchen really is. I didn't get sick, but I also ordered chicken and vegetables, so the risk of contamination was probably low to begin with.

Went here for a late lunch (3pm) while waiting to check into our room at the Westin Hotel. Verified that gf pasta is cokes in separate water from pasta containing gluten but was told they don't use separate/newly cleaned utensils. Because they were slow (we were one of three parties in the place) & we wanted to bring this food into the SAP Center so my celiac daughter could eat safely during the US Olympic Gymnastic Trials, I asked that they freshly cleans all tool/pots that would come into contact with her meal. Waiter agreed to this but I don't think we'll be back as I had the impression this would not happen & doesn't routinely happen during busier times.

They have a gf menu, and the food tasted okay. It made me sick. Walking out we noticed only one pot for pasta on stove. It's possible they boiled in the same water as regular pasta? Not sure, I'd ask if I ever go back.

I couldn't be happier that the restaurant has a gluten free menu and the service was excellent but my meal was a little lacking something. The minestrone soup flavors just weren't there for me and half of my pasta wasn't cooked. My husband, however, had the roasted chicken and enjoyed it. Chicken next time.

I had a wonderful meal here. They have a seperate GF menu but they also had a seasonal menu that didn't indicate whether items were GF. I asked the waiter about a particular dish on the seasonal menu and he checked with the chef. It was nice to have not only a delicious GF pasta starter but the seasonal menu item as well. They were both delicious!! The waiter also said that the company (Corner Bakery) is working on their own recipe for GF bread that will hopefully be available soon.

Delicious!! Very accommodating for my celiac and many other allergies. Wait staff was knowledgable and offered excellent suggestions. They don't have gluten free bread available so I looked longingly at my husband and he ate his gluten filled bread dipped in oil. I will definitely be going back soon.

Really unimpressed with the food, we had the peppercorn chicken and pasta bolognese, the chicken was dry and bland and the pasta was that tough gluten free type pasta that has that waxy consistency. Service and ambience is great, but the food just isn't worth the reality high prices.
