I am not celiac. I do have an intolerance that makes me quite uncomfortable for several days after exposure. We had Thanksgiving dinner here, and I never had a problem. I have to say our server was fantastic. She helped me find dishes that I could eat, and was very attentive to my diet restrictions. It was fantastic. I did not eat the spaghetti because of the reviews on here. I do eat Barilla at home with no problems though. Idk.

We went for a birthday dinner with three gluten allergy people. The chef came out to speak to us and the waitress seemed knowledgeable. We were worried when one of our dishes came out as regular spaghetti instead of gluten-free but they fixed it and apologized. Two of us were very itchy towards the end of the meal and all three of us had to go to the restroom for diarrhea before we could even leave the restaurant. We left three half-eaten meals at the table. So expensive… so very ill. We feel terrible.

The chef came out and went over the menu with me explaining what options I had. The service was great. HOWEVER, I wish I trusted more of the other reviews because unfortunately I got sick after eating here too. I got the gluten free pasta (they use Barilla) with marinara sauce and sausage with a side of broccoli. They did tell me they make everything separately but they must be missing something in the ingredients because I do not feel good.

Before going, I called and asked about how GF food was prepped and served. They told me it was cooked separately in a separate area of the kitchen and they were very careful and allergy safe.

My mom & I (both celiac) ordered 2 GF dishes. Right away, we were both super itchy. Then, we got diarrhea and stomach pain, along with hives/rash. We took Benadryl but my celiac people know that gluten can make us sick for days up to a week. Very unfortunate because they said they were allergy safe and clearly aren’t.

I ordered my Chicken Romano to be gluten free. The Sous chef came out and when I asked if that dish could be made gluten free he said yes. The dish came and had no Parmesan or any type of breading, just a piece of grilled chicken. Why wouldn’t the chef tell me that the chicken would be absolutely plain? I would have ordered something else!

I would not recommend this establishment for take-out. The person taking my order seemed unaware of gluten containing ingredients for pasta dishes (does the sausage contain gluten? I still don't know!) When we went to pick up our meals, we found that my gluten free meal was actually standard pasta- and with the wrong sauce. Without apology, they "corrected" the dish - again with standard pasta. Finally, after 45 minutes of waiting on the correct gluten free meal, we were given a bag full of (gluten containing) bread as an apology ("to apologize").

Just okay. I ordered a pasta alfredo dish and the pasta was quite limp and honestly a bit bland. I used to eat here before I went gluten free and the regular menu is much better than the GF one. Just not impressed with them.

I'm corn free as well as gluten free, so my options are even more limited. The chef comes out and talks through the menu with you. (The first chef was amazing, the second time, the chef spoke little English but understood my issues and his ingredients, so it was fine). All of their sauces are GF, so you do have lots of options. If you can eat the corn pasta, you pay the same price as normal eaters for the classic pasta dishes and get to take one home as well. This is the only restaurant I've been to in a long time that I have had no adverse effects after eating. They understand our needs and do a great job of accommodating!

horrible experience. no gluten free menu, chef comes out and talks to you but my pasta was from a box, i expected homemade, not one i could buy in the store. Chicken was ok..i can do better at home.. nothing to make me want to go back there. There are so many wonderful restuarants to choose from that i choose not to go back to one that was bad.

I have had only excellent experiences here. Always get to speak directly to the chef about my needs. Food is delicious and and I love that they have GF pasta (corn, last I checked). While I've really enjoyed everything I've had here, I would really like to see them expand their options. They only have one type of GF noodle so you can't really have things like spaghetti, angel hair, or varying types of noodles. It's always the same type of pasta, no matter what type the original dish would usually have had. Also not sure why they chose corn pasta since most GF people I know tend to prefer brown rice pasta. Oh well. All-in-all, I don't shy away from going here -- it's just not at the very top of my list since other places around have more options.

Phenomenal! Chef came out and offered gluten-free options. GF pasta us available upon request. Their second day take home option was excellent the next day. Impressed with chef's knowledge and suggestions.

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.

The food was delicious, and they claim to have a bunch of gluten-free options. But most of the food is prepared in the same area, along with cooked in the same place as other foods. I don’t have celiac, but I had a violent reaction after eating here.

My waiter was super knowledgeable on my allergy. (I’m celiac) I enjoy pasta (GF) and even had a salad to start. I would 100% go back.
