    My mother and I ate here 2 weeks ago. When we were seated I told the hostess that I have celiac disease and would need a gluten free menu. She didn't act like she cared. Then they brought out glasses of water which were caked in crumbs from the dishwasher. My gut told me to run right then, but we had been traveling all day and were starving. I politely sent the water back because the glass really was disgusting. I ordered a glass of wine as well, that glass was caked in crumbs too. I ordered the chicken alfredo with broccoli. It was good but I started swelling before we even left the restaurant. I dealt with the effects of the gluten contamination for the next 10 days or so. I'm finally beginning to feel better. I don't feel like my food had gluten in it but it was definitely contaminated from the environment.

    I was so excited to find this place when stopped over in Salina! They seemed to know about Celiac & at there with no problem. They bring (gluten) bread to the table, so be prepared to ward off cross-contamination. I had spaghetti with Italian sausage. The sausage was good, the pasts just average. I'd go back!

    so disappointed in this restaurant. my gluten free pasta came out with non gluten free pasta in it. only way that could happen is cook in the same water.. cross contamination!

    The service was exceptional and they were very knowledgeable about their gf options. They had a gluten free menu and could make many items gf. I will definitely go again.

    Just about all of their pasta dishes can be substituted with gluten free pasta. There is a slight up charge, but the prices are so reasonable, you won't see the difference from the comparable chains. All of their sauces are gluten free, so you can mix and match to your hearts content. This place its a definite must for gluten freers who miss their pasta fix!
