If you have Celiac or are very sensitive to gluten…. Be aware that this is not a celiac safe restaurant. Many of the items on the menu state that they are gluten free, but they definitely are not. The gnocchi is labeled as GF, but when I went to order it, the waitress told us it was not gluten free and there was not a GF alternative. I instead ordered spaghetti and meatballs with GF noodles… to have them come back a few minutes later to tell me the meatballs contain gluten. I ended up with a very simplified version of chicken parmesan with no cheese. Only about half of the noodles in both mine and my husband’s dishes were cooked and edible. The chicken and sauce were good and we did not have gluten symptoms, but it overall was a mid-tier experience.

The menu is clearly marked for gluten-free items. Had an excellent gluten-free dessert. Will be back to try some of their entrees. Including some breaded entrees I haven't had in forever!

Be very aware that many menu items are marked as gluten free but are not. I am diligent and study the menu before I arrive to be sure that I don’t ingest gluten. Upon arriving I discovered through a series of questions that multiple menu items were not actually gluten free. I ended up ordering a fish entree after specifying multiple times that I was gluten free and it came out with a side of sauce that contained gluten (after I had to ask again before eating). Don’t eat here if you don’t want to risk it.

I called my order in because I didn’t see gluten free on the online menu. The staff was extremely helpful and immediately provided multiple gluten free pastas. I ordered the angel hair and it was perfect!
