Had neither the GF pizza crust or pasta advertised. The waitress informed me I could just eat the regular kind it wouldn’t have gluten. We left.

I had the GF Pizza and it wasn’t cooked completely thru. Very doughy. Server not very knowledgeable on what GF was.

AVIOD AT ALL COSTS - This review is being written from the bathroom… and certainly not a reflection on our waiter, Eric, who was great. After specifically requesting gluten free pasta twice & being told when it arrived to the table that it was gluten free (3 assurances)- … move forward 5 minutes of eating the meal & half way finished, another waitstaff snatched it off the table and said, “sorry, this isn’t gluten free”….. A gluten free meal then arrives with apologies. By that point I’m trying to enjoy what I can before I know what’s about to follow.

To top it off, the cheque comes for payment & there’s no adjustment whatsoever for their huge error. Needless to say, a terrible experience & hopefully the flight back to Australia tomorrow isn’t on the toilet…

They were under staffed so I was a little worried and our waiter was new so we asked to talk to the chef and he was very understanding and took us to him. The chef assured us that they would do everything to prevent cross contamination. They said their pizzas are prepared somewhere else. I got the Caesar salad(no croutons) and the margarita pizza. I didn’t feel or get sick and would go back.

I had gf pasta carbonara. It was good, but I’ve had much better at home for a lot less $. Acceptable spot for gf tourists but I wouldn’t return if I were a local. Nice atmosphere.

Food was really good. All the pastas (and sauces) can be gluten free and they have GF pizza! It is expensive, so be aware of that. Great atmosphere

We have come here multiple times because it’s delicious and they’d do great with gluten and dairy allergy. They have a GF menu and offer vegan cheese. We’ve ordered various things over our visits, the bolognese is so good. And the lamb chops. Highly recommend. Ask for Jeremy as a waiter because he has food restrictions too and understands!

Amazing experience, my boyfriend (significant gluten intolerance) and I ate here 4 times and while on vacation due to their amazing food and great service and handling of gluten. They were able to tell us what items could be done gluten free and what couldn’t and what would have cross contamination vs not. Overall, we had an amazing experience every time!! Would highly recommend!

Atrocious!!! Called ahead and asked about gluten free and was assured that they can accommodate. Arrived to a less than 50% capacity restaurant and told that they had NO GLUTEN FREE PASTAS LEFT. Whaaat? Only 2 menus given to the 5 of us and when I asked they said they were “trying to conserve menus”. But the place was half empty! One drink never came nor did one entree and to top it all off, the waiter must have been having as bad a day as our experience.

Fantastic gluten free pizza! Reminded me of regular pizza more than anything I’ve had since being Celiac.

Great pizza! I had the calamari pizza and it was amazing. The crust doesn’t look remarkable when you see it but it was actually really great. Didn’t get sick and they even have their pizzas on happy hour.

GF pizza and pasta is available all made while taking precautions against cross contamination. I had the margarita pizza which was honestly fantastic! One of the best gf pizzas I have had! Would most definitely go back in the future.

Our dinner was excellent! They have both gluten free pasta and pizza. Hands down one of the best GF pizzas I’ve ever had. I had the prosciutto and arugula. Highly recommend if you seek Italian.
