All fresh made ingredients!
Ate here a few days ago and got sick. Thought their procedures were pretty good - supposedly separate utensils, pasta boiled in a clean pot with fresh water, prepped in a separate area. At least this is what I was told. Am about 99.9% positive it was this meal because I ate every other meal at home that day and hadn't eaten out for a while before. The manager was nice and seemed concerned when I called to tell him the next day. Other reviews have been good so maybe I just had a bad experience, but I won't be back.
Their gluten free pasta has a great taste and texture. It was quite yummy. Server was a little unsure of certain things, but did know to warn about dairy in certain dishes in case that was an issue as well. Does not have a kid's menu. I'm very sensitive to cross contamination and I did not get sick.
This place is AWESOME! We featured them with our Nashville Gluten Free Dinner Club. They cook pasta in separate water and use clean pans and utensils to make sauces or your main entree. Call In advance so they can get the water boiling for your noodles. Also try the mussels! Delish!
You're better off going to Olive Garden if you're looking for flavor. I was hoping for a very nice, classy Italian dining experience. This place is in a strip mall and the food was SO VERY BLAND. I should have listened to the yelp review that said "if you're looking for an $11 plate with pasta sauce you can make at home, go here." Except that most homemade pasta sauces I've had are better than this. They were nice when I asked for gluten free pasta though. No rolling eyes or anything, so that was nice.
I enjoyed dinner at Mirko. I started with the mussels in white wine, had the house salad and then gluten free pasta with spicy pancetta tomato sauce. Everything tasted great. I double checked with the waitress that the gf pasta is cooked in a separate pot of fresh water. I gave four stars because my gf pasta was kind of broken up into short pieces, and the portion was much smaller than all the other entrees I saw. Overall good.
We had a wonderful time dining here. Great quality food, service, & price. They have both Penne & Spaghetti GF pasta options! Both are equally good. Every sauce I've had has been great. They will give you celery and carrots to dip in their bean & oil dip before the meal. Highly recommend!
So excited to find another option for dining out in Mobile! After seeing a positive, gluten free review on Urbanspoon and another on Trip Advisor, I called and spoke to their general manager Dale. He did a great job explaining how they avoid cross contamination by preparing the gluten free pasta at the beginning of each day, separate from the wheat-based pastas. He also said they have people request gluten-free accommodations through out the week, which was reassuring. As for the actual food experience, the meal was delicious! I had the gluten free pasta with the Santa Rosa sauce, topped with grilled chicken (yes, they cleaned the grill off before preparing our food). My dining companion also eats on a gluten-free diet, and had the GF pasta with alfredo sauce, topped with grilled salmon. We were told all of the sauces are GF but the Norma, which has a breaded eggplant. As they look to expand their gluten-free knowledge and offerings, I dirercted them to the GIG website to learn about their gluten-free restaurant program. I highly recommend supporting such a business that is willing to look into providing such tastey, safe dining options for we who must eat gluten-free.
