    I discovered this place on this app while visiting from out of state and looking for a place to eat. They have a separate gluten free menu, knowledgeable staff, and the chef came out to talk to us because we were there at an off time (3:00 pm). The chef has non celiac gluten sensitivity and makes every effort to accommodate to allergens and ensure a safe eating experience. I order the gluten free chicken piccata with gluten free pasta every time I eat here. Not only is it delicious (even better than my Italian grandma’s home made chicken piccata), but I did not get sick after any of the 6 times I have eaten here (and I am very sensitive to cross contamination). I absolutely recommend it, and look forward to eating there again the next time I am in Norfolk.

    Excellent food. The staff is very informed of allergies and the head chef has some allergies himself. They can do gluten free pasta or serve the pasta dish over brocollini which is what I did. Will definitely be back!

    The portion sizes are very small, the kitchen is dirty, and the wait staff are extremely lazy. Not worth your money or your time.

    Chicken marsala (gluten free version) was yummy. Very small amount of pasta with meal though for the price I would think it would be more pasta and a salad too . Salad was extra cost. no gluten free bread option which also is disappointing. Update Feb 2014 - still small portions.

    Nice restaurant and wait staff was accommodating to the needs of a gluten free diner. Portion size was very large and delicious.

    Great pasta options! Amazing gluten free dessert. Definitely a must if you are in the Ghent/Norfolk area.
