The reviews were very mixed but we went here based on the most recent great review. I would advise against going here. My son has celiac and I asked our server about cross contamination and boiling in the same water and all those questions. They delivered the food and said it was gluten free when it arrived and my son definitely got glutened.

First off the wait to even get our server to the table was extremely long. Our server was very rude and dismissive towards celiac and was not understanding. The pasta was SUPER good(a little too good for gluten free) i got the gluten free pasta with bolognese sauce. After not even 10 minutes my stomach started to hurt and now 2 hours later I have a heating pad on my stomach and can’t even walk. Great food but not great for da belly.
