    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.

    They don’t have a gluten free menu but the chef came to the table and offered to make my daughter whatever she wanted. She ordered simple pasta but she had no reaction. Staff were all very knowledgeable.

    They have the ability to make many things GF and know what they’re doing. They have GF pasta too. I’ve never gotten sick and been here many times. Very tasty. They also offer “lighter take” items that have fewer calories. This is my go to Italian restaurant. Yum!

    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").

    Best GF pasta I’ve ever had. Waiter was knowledgeable about GF options. There were so many choices! I don’t have celiac, but it seemed to be celiac friendly. I would highly recommend if you are GF by choice. If you have celiac, perhaps call ahead to confirm.

    The last 2 times I've been here, they screwed up my order and had to remake my food. The chef will come out for show and pretty much just nod if the dish can be made gluten free, but they aren't terribly diligent. Take a close look at your dish and make sure they used the GF penne (pointy and grooved) and not the wheat rigatoni (smooth and cylindrical).

    *updated* I initially had fabulous experiences here, but after eating successfully 3-4 times, I got very sick 2 times in a row. The first time I was accidentally served regular pasta and I thought it tasted too good to be gluten free but I ate it and became incredibly sick. The second time I believe it was cross contamination. Both times I called the restaurant. After the first incident, the management was incredibly apologetic. After the second, they blamed me as being too sensitive to eat out because they can't control if a waiter touches bread and then touches my water glass. I thought that was a bit far fetched and insulting. Unfortunately, I no longer feel comfortable eating here.

    Went with 8 other people, so we ordered Family Style. The waiter brought me a Gluten-Free version of the 3 of the items we ordered. The sautéed calamari was good. The Grilled Chicken Piccata was lacking flavor, it just needed a little more lemon sauce. The Braised Beef with Gluten-Free Penne instead of Pappardelle was excellent, I don’t know what brand of gluten-free pasta they used but it was the best I’ve ever had. For dessert, the waiter brought me a dish of strawberries since we ordered Cheesecake and Hit Apple Crostata. The only item I couldn’t eat was the Chef’s Italian Antipasti and I chose not to eat the Salmon.

    I stopped in and ordered takeout for dinner. Had a long conversation with the takeout host about gluten free options. He was great and even checked with the kitchen on salad dressings. I got back to my hotel and my entree was regular spaghetti (easy to tell since it wasn't their GF penne shape). And there was a big hunk of bread in the bag. Called the restaurant and they sent someone to my hotel with a GF entree 40 minutes later. I was super sick later that night. I might dine in at a different location but I'd never do take out again.

    Absolutely delicious. Chef came to table and offered to prepare 80% of the menu gluten free - not just pastas, all the main courses. Only thing couldn't modify to gluten free was desserts. Speaking of desserts- the creme brûlée was gluten free and it was outstanding, probably the best tasting I have EVER had. The food here is fresh, cooked to order, the staff is friendly, GF knowledgeable, and everything we had was so tasty. BTW they will accommodate many food allergies, ie. eggs, milk, nuts etc. Highly recommend this place even if you have to drive a little while to get there because it is so worth it.

    I have to say that this is probably one of the best dining experiences I have had since being diagnosed with Celiac two years ago. My waiter(Abraham) was great and told me that the kitchen was prepared and knowledgeable in preparing gluten free food and had a dedicated workspace. He told me the chef would be right out to discuss my order. Eric the chef and I spoke about what I would be ordering and how it would be prepared. I ordered the Taylor Street Pasta with sausage and it was fantastic. Later on Abraham treated my table with creme brûlée (also gluten free ) for dessert. The manager, Charles was also wonderful and very attentive. Great experience. Will go back.
