Waiter asked about allergies before taking our order. Chef came out and talked to us to cover everything. They got my order confused and piccata came out instead of marsala, but we got it all sorted out in the end.

I was very impressed with this place. The chef came out to speak to us personally after saying I had a gluten allergy. He discussed all of my options and was willing to prepare anything I wanted GF, which was incredible. Food was really, really good. LARGE portions. Not sure about how they handle cross contamination in the kitchen but I'm a sensitive celiac and I did not get sick. Definitely a great option when going out with a large group of non-celiacs.

I was very impressed. The waiter asked if we had any allergies without prompting. The chef came to the table to discuss what we could order. They could make many things gluten free. My girls had spaghetti with meat sauce. I had chix parm with grilled chix. (3 celiacs) They even had gf creme brulee. We loved it.

By far one of the best gluten free experiences we had while in Chicago! They don't have a separate gluten free menu, but they can make almost any menu item with gluten free pasta. The chef came out to our table and helped me plan my meal. It was fantastic!! We actually ate here twice, because it was that wonderful!!

Not only a great place to eat but they also have a dedicated GF area and the chef is very accommodating. They also have live entertainment several nights a week. One of the few Italian restaurants that is celiac friendly.

Awesome! Can adapt almost any pasta dish, subbing a wonderful corn ziti. Good prices and classic dishes are two for one ( one to take home). Huge potions (share) and giant creme brulee. Good for kids.

A very nice setting for a fancy dinner out. The gluten free pre for pasta is seperate and safe. Not many options on the menu- only penne noodles. However they will customize your pasta any way with the sauces and toss ins. We have added chicken/shrimp/mushrooms veggies to Alfredo sauce and loved it. They also let you take home a GF dish for $5! Cheap way to feed a GF family for a 2nd meal. No gf bread . We ordered mussells for an appetizer and salads!

I ate here as a reception after my small wedding. I am a very sensitive celiac and I had no problems eating here! I had chicken Francese, made grilled, with gluten free penne in a lemon herb butter sauce. I am several days out and not sick at all! I will definitely be dining here again.

I have been to this location before but this visit was disappointing. Chef did not come out and talk to me about options. I was told I couldn’t have a few of the salads so I skipped that. I had a bland version of Chicken Marsala and they brought that out with a side of plain GF noodles. Wasn’t exactly what I expected. I asked the waitress to put some red sauce on it, which she did, but when she returned the noodles were cold. I have been to other locations that went above and beyond and had GF bread!
