I felt this restaurant’s reviews needed to be updated because I went in today expecting a positive experience and was disappointed and misled. They DO have gluten free penne. But the server didn’t even know about that or anything being gluten free (like the pasta sauces). She was so unknowledgeable about the food and restaurant she even gave us lunch menus and they only serve the dinner menus on Saturday. Even for someone new (my assumption, giving her the benefit of the doubt) the service was too poor- we were the first party to dine that day (a solid 40min after they opened) and were the only people there to wait on for a good while. I had to go get her to take our order after we were waiting for at least 20 mins and found her in conversation with a couple at the bar without looking like she planned to come over to us any time soon. Also per the waitress there was no soda in the restaurant because the owner was at the store buying more. The bigger problem was that in addition to horrible service the food is not good. The bolognese sauce tasted like tomato soup with unseasoned ground hamburger in it. I hope others will not be misled by the restaurants prior positive reviews. They had better tighten things up or they won’t be in business much longer with food and service so poor.
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.
FANTASTIC! A great date night restaurant with attentive staff and delicious food. Went in toward the end of the evening one time; they were out of gluten free pasta and made more fresh for my family. Caesar salad is deeelish!
Very attentive & knowledgeable staff. GF pasta provided.
Amazing GF pasta dishes!
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.
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.
Ordered the gluten free penne noodle with alfredo sauce as they did not have the gluten free spaghetti noodle. Alfredo sauce was bland. Had to add some salt and pepper so it wasn't so bland. Luckily I am just visiting Nashville because I would not eat there again.
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
— Not Much
Best GF pasta in Nashville. The crab sauce was amazing. You pick from a long list the type of pasta and sauce you would like. We enjoyed the salad and wine. Casual place with very good food.
Wait staff wasn’t helpful. Our waitress made two trips back to the chef to ask questions that she couldn’t answer some answers were actually on the menu. I did order and we will see if I get sick. The food was delicious though.
