Great Italian restaurant. Although there is no gluten-free menu per se, the menu states that all pasta dishes can be made with GF penne pasta. It points out dishes that cannot be made gluten-free such as lasagna. I have celiac and I have done there with no problems and greatly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The waitress is knowledgeable and reassuring. the food is fantastic. We will be visiting again soon.

I hate to leave a bad review but their gf pasta is horrible. It just crumbled to pieces. I couldn’t finish my dish. They really could do better on the quality. The soup special when I was there was gazpacho and it was very good. If you have friends or family wanting to go it’s doable, but I’d never choose to go here.

I LOVE this place! I went for the first time on a romantic date with my husband, it is always packed, but worth the wait. I had the chicken picatta and the prosciutto and melon as a starter! I can have dairy or gluten so I was able to sub any butter for olive oil and it was so delicious! Please stop in if you want some delicious Italian food. (Most everything can be made gluten free)

It’s a beautiful restaurant. Tucked away in a neighborhood it is cozy with twinkling lights. It feels like you stumbled on a hidden gem. The staff was so welcoming and friendly. They do not have a GF menu, but the waiter was very knowledgeable and explained anything can be made GF except the premade items (ie lasagna and ravioli).

The food was wonderful and I did not get sick. I’m sensitive to cross contamination and didn’t have any issues. I look forward to going back.

I asked for a gluten free menu and never got one. The waiter said that it’s all gluten free and I could just substitute the gf pasta for any meal. I should’ve known this wasn’t true, but he was kind of rushing us so I just went with it. He also brought us salads before the meal when we ordered soup. Messed up our order and told us he had to have the chef remake everything. Once we got our food, it was absolutely amazing, but I did end up getting super sick from it. Ask for an actual gf menu and make sure you get one if you go! Didn’t appreciate this as it was my birthday meal :/

The website listed that most all the pasta offerings could be made with GF pasta, and we found it to be true. The staff was very accommodating and helped us find an appetizer, main entree, and dessert that was GF. Each dish is made to order, so we felt good knowing our preferences were taken into account. The atmosphere is nice too. Dark, intimate and romantic interior seating. They have a very nice outdoor seating area too. Def coming back for our anniversary:)
