Went for dinner was a little nervous at first. Then the chef came out and took my order separate from the rest of the table. I ordered the gluten free penne with arrabbiata sauce, with chicken and spinach. Had no adverse reaction and food was hot and fresh

Tasty with generous portions. All the sauces are gluten free, and any dish made with smaller noodles can be made with their gluten free penne. So dishes like fettuccini alfredo, spaghetti with meat sauce, yes. Lasagna, no. A lot of the dishes that aren't pasta are also available gluten free too.

When I said I'm gluten free the chef came out to talk to me, which I didn't ask for and was unnecessary but appreciated. Explained their very thorough process to avoid cross contamination which put me at complete ease

Waitress explained that they cater to people with allergies. The chef came out and talked to me: all sauces are gf, they have a gf penne pasta. Most dishes, with the exception of the lasagna, can be modified to be gf! Food was amazing!!!

Twice I've had normal noodles in my gf dish even after the chef came out to speak with me. The waiter and manager were very apologetic and gave my date and I free full size desserts and my meal was free. Luckily I noticed the noodles pretty early on so I was able to get them to make a new one without getting sick.

Delicious food and almost things can be made GF. The chef even came to the table to make sure I was happy with the precautions they were taking against cross contamination. I would recommend this place to anyone in a heartbeat!

Received very good customer service. The Chef came to the table to take the gluten-fee order for our daughter who has celiacs disease. The waitress and staff were excellent and we had no issues with cross contamination.

My wife and I have been here twice both times the cook has vome yo our table explaining what items we could have on the menu and the way they are cooked. Both times we got the 4 meals for $40.00 which is very cheap. I liked the meat pasta and my wife likes Alfredo. I recommend this for those who are looking for a nice meal on a budget.

I was in a large group of people and the server was very attentive to my special requests. He was unsure of the gluten free items, but went and brought the chef out to speak with me. Apparently their GF options are made with corn pasta, which was a fun surprise. I had never had anything like it and it was very tasty.

I had great service and the manager ensured I knew what I could and couldn't have. He gave suggestions on how to best enjoy the GF pasta and made me feel very secure with my meal being GF. I didn't like the food however and it was pretty expensive for what you get.

Really great Italian restaurant - we had an amazing waiter (his sister has coeliac so he was very knowledgeable). He recommended the chicken francese (but chicken parm style and with some spicy chilli pepper sauce) and the lobster carbonara (with GF penne).

Both were amazing, but the lobster carbonara stole the show - highly, highly recommend! My dad said it was the best pasta dish he’d ever had.

The only GF dessert option was the creme brûlée - this was delicious. It comes in a smaller ‘taster’ size or a larger portion to be shared.

We liked it so much we came back the next evening and ordered the same thing. I did no not react to the food on either occasion, felt very safe, and would happily eat there every time we’re in Vegas.

Incredible experience both times we’ve been there. Waiter and manager both went above and beyond explaining the options and answering questions. Manager automatically comes over when an allergy is announced, and he checks in again once your meal has arrived. Everyone was very friendly and fun to talk to. I felt very safe there and the meal was perfection.

I will not eat here. Sat for ten minutes asking for a wait staff to confirm availability of GF and cross contamination. Unless you want to order from the on line menu and trust but not verify, don’t recommend. I left without having even a chance of talking to someone.
