Excellent food and no reaction for me. A decent GF menu with options for every taste. Waiter was very good about communication and understanding.

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.

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.

BEST GLUTEN FREE PASTA OF MY LIFE! I mean truly to die for - the best! Super considerate with allergies as my waitress asked before I even told her. Love this place. Separate gluten free menu

Gluten free menu. Open at strange hours of the day. Zero issues over the years.

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.
