All of the personal pizzas can be made gluten free. They're so good! The house salad is also delicious!

Love the GF pasta dishes. However, make sure that if, like me, you have another allergy(dairy) you ask for no cheese in your pasta. It comes with it in it already but does not state it on the menu.

The baked ziti is wonderful and they were very knowledgeable about how their food is prepared and how to prevent cross contamination.

Their gf pizza tastes great but after trying twice I got sick both times despite alerting them of an allergy and “minimizing cross-contamination.” Not safe for celiacs

The food was very good. But if you’re concerned about cross contamination, do not eat here. I asked the cook about the gluten free pizza, and he admitted it was NOT a gluten free kitchen. There was flour flying everywhere as I spoke to him. He was very kind and wanted to understand, but he admittedly did not know much about Celiacs. My son devoured the entire pizza and it was delicious. But again, not celiac friendly. Removed 2 stars due to no dedicated kitchen space.

Update. This restaurant does not prepare food in a designated space. The GF pasta is not cooked in separate water. Our waiter assured me that "everything is cooked together." Do not eat here!!
