Lots of gf options, but mixed messages from staff about what was coeliac safe. In the end I went with the pasta, with no ill effect, but it felt like a risk.

Great experience! The maître d’ was able to tell us all of their processes for coeliacs. I felt very safe and the pasta was excellent.

Food was absolutely gorgeous. Pizza bases were handmade and sooo fluffy inside! The staff were very concerned about making sure everything was OK and double checked the order was alright before placing the order.

Cannot recommend this place enough!

The chorizo and goats cheese pasta was delicious. They clarified if I was coeliac and it wasn’t a problem.

Great food, had the veal scallopini, and it was delicious. Staff friendly and knew the difference between gluten free and coeliac. Would eat here again next time I’m in the cbd.
