Very accommodating to allergies and aware of cross-contamination concerns. Our server Luca was knowledgeable about what could/could not be made GF on the menu. I had the lobster pasta and they confirmed it would be made in its own water. Generous portion of lobster. We also split the raclette antipasti and the panna cotta dessert. All delicious and did not get sick.

Excellent experience here. We had celiac marked in the reservation and they got a new pot of pasta water heating before coming to the table. I also watched them use a new cutting board when preparing my entree. Was able to have cocktail, salad, entree, and dessert — all delicious.

The gf pasta is fusilli-shaped (corkscrew), and there's a basic red sauce, pesto, and bolognese as far as sauce options to match.

They were busy when I went (7:30pm on a weeknight) so I didn't get to ask in detail about other menu items, but the fusilli with pesto was buttery, balanced with plenty of green basil and garlic, and a perfect portion size. Fresh grated Parmesan from our server gave it granules of perfection. Don't tell the chef but I added a little bit of salt, delicious! Didn't even notice the gf-ness of the pasta, flavor and texture was seamless to me. No adverse reactions and my system is sensitive. I'll be back!

Might want to go when it's slow if you want to ask about menu options in more detail.

Great spot for a date! Warm, cozy, elegant glassware and setting.

They have a glass window all around the kitchen. By chance I sat right by the window and watched my pasta bolognese made. I was very impressed. It's not a dedicated kitchen. They don't have a dedicated menu. But I watched as they had the pan with my bolognese on a separate burner and cooked my pasta in a fresh pot of water. I watched as he carefully twisted up the noodles so they wouldn't touch the underside of the skillet. The plates were away from the other plates. Oh, and it was really great! I make a great bolognese and I would have swallowed it in one gulp if I could!! Now I went late so it wasn't too busy. We'll see if they are so cautious when they are slammed. I'll definitely be back though.
