    I called ahead shortly before arriving and the manager I spoke with assured me that they could accommodate Celiac. As soon as we got seated a manager came over and explained what I could have. I ordered pasta with meat sauce and got a salad with the house vinaigrette. The manager personally took my order and worked with the kitchen to make sure it was safe. The GF pasta wasn’t amazing (but I figure good GF pasta is hard to come by in that setting without additional cross contamination risks and for it being corn based pasta they cooked it really well), but the meat sauce was great! My husband got a risotto that was gluten free as well. We would definitely come back!

    Good food. They can do gf pasta noodles. The gf chocolate mousse it the best but you do have to ask about gf for desserts. Overall, very good experience!

    They offer a few gf options. Our server was great and explained how they avoid CC. I had gf pasta with Bolenaise sauce, it was very bland and not worth the money. However, I didn't get sick so that's a Huge plus!

    Extremely good food flavor wise. No gf pasta options, but plenty of choices especially with desert. The waiter was kind of.. Unhelpful? When I asked about whether the asterisk indicates completely gf dishes- or ones that can be prepared that way. I got a little sick after dinner but that could have been due to a family member giving me a spoon for desert that they didn't "use" hence 3/5

    The restaurant was extremely good about accommodating the member of our party with Celiac Disease. The waiter was knowledgeable about what items were gluten-free and what adjustments the kitchen could make to prepare other items custom to be gluten-free. Because of this, there was a wide variety of available. items.

    I had a late lunch so I had to eat up stairs. It was decorated very cute. I had basic pasta, sausage and red sauce. It was good not great. They served me a basket of bread. Not gluten free. One down side, it smelled nasty and my tablecloth was dirty.

    I came across this restaurant while research GF options in Chicago. When I made our reservation the woman asked about any food allergies. I loved the place as soon as we arrived. It was so cute and authentic Italian. A chef came to the table to talk to me about my options, which were a lot. The menu also designated GF items. I got minestrone soup and chicken Alfredo. It was a great meal. I also got to try my dad's risotto, which was one of the specials and delicious. I have celiac and am extremely sensitive to cross contamination. While I did take enzymes just in case, I had no adverse reaction to my meal. It was a great experience and we will definitely go back next time we're in Chicago. I'm also interested in trying their other two restaurants that are in the same building.

    They had gluten free pasta. I asked them to make Baked Ziti even though it wasn't on the menu and it was perfect! Very happy!
