Absolutely incredible!!!!! Everything tasted amazing! The praline cheesecake was to die for! Can't not express how exciting it was to have Italian and it taste like real food versus many gluten free options that lack taste or taste like cardboard.

Highly recommend this place! I had the pasta with meatballs, salad and rolls and cheesecake for dessert. (Also, ordered a pizza to go! She makes the pizza dough from scratch 😍) many many options to choose from will be returning very soon.

The staff is wonderful, and they have many Gluten Free options but honestly the food was so horrible. I didn’t even manage to eat half of it. I read all of the negative reviews but gave it hope because of all of the options, that was my mistake. Don’t waste your money.

Are there more stars to give this place? Food was awesome. Plenty of options. The rolls that come with dinner were so good, we bought a dozen to bring home. I had the manicotti, fresh, homemade pasta, like a crepe!! Also, bought two pieces of cake home, german chocolate and carrot cake. The owner has Celiac and gets it. Get here! It was busy and it is a small place, they do take reservations!

Small quaint family diner. Great food a lot of gluten free choices including made from scratch GF cheese raviolis, which is unheard of. Great GF rolls and all their cakes are GF, carrot cake, great! German chocolate cake, wonderful and chocolate cake awesome! All those desserts GF of course I had to take a piece of each home. No problems after eating there and I would most definitely go back and I most definitely recommend you go!

Absolute must do for a celiac. Incredibly great GF food and the best GF bread roll I’ve ever had. The owner totally understands celiacs and carefully prepares each GF meal from scratch, even her homemade GF pizza crust. They a special GF menu full off delicious dishes. The help is well trained in our dietary needs. Everyone there was very friendly and accommodating. Can’t wait to go back.

Absolutely an amazing experience! Their GF choices are amazing! We are down in The Villages visiting in laws and I used the app to find GF pizza... then I ended up ordering GF smothered spinach lasagna. Wow! Many of her pasta noodles are made from scratch.

They were sold out of the carrot cake so I had a peanut butter cheesecake. It was great, but I'm going back for the GF carrot cake and German chocolate cake today.

The owner is Celiac so the staff is VERY conscientious of gluten issues. They do note on the menu that there is wheat flour in the kitchen so cross contamination is possible but I had NO issues.

The wait staff brought complimentary bread & oil to the table right away for my friends. The minute I asked for a GF menu, to my surprise, they brought me a large piece of GF bread so I wasn’t just watching my friends eat. Very friendly, knowledgeable staff. Clean environment, nice atmosphere. Loved my spaghetti & meatballs! All of us liked our food GF or not. I am celiac and had no problem. Will definitely return.

OMG. This restaurant is AMAZING! They have MANY GF dishes to choose from. I had manicotti with meat sauce, a meatball, salad and the MOST DELICIOUS GF bread! My husband wanted the GF carrot cake for dessert and he's not even GF! 😬 The owner is a celiac who converted her own families recipes to GF. I cannot pay enough compliments about this restaurant. I hugged the owner and it was SPECTACULAR! IT'S A MUST for any celiac or a GF intolerant person. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Large gluten free selection. I have been here multiple times and will continue to go back. Fried chicken and fries are my typical goto. Yum! The other is, steak and gf pasta. Both come with a salad and gf roll (which is delicious btw). Dessert is my favorite part! They are so tasty. Momma has Celiac and can relate!

We went there for the first time tonight. We were a party of 7 and they sat us right away. We had 3 kids with us and they were all able to find things they loved. My husband has celiacs and had a great gluten free menu to choose from. He had no issues with cross contamination which is sometimes an issue when we eat out. Highly recommend! Will eat there again!

What a treat! GF pasta! Owner has Celiac and makes things from scratch. I had lasagna which was excellent and let's not forget the soft and delish dinner rolls! I will definitely be back to try the pizza. She said it took her three years to perfect the dough!

Amazing food! The bread was soft and moist. The lasagna was baked perfectly and they even had cheesecake. I bought some bread rolls to freeze and reheat later. If we lived closer we would eat here all the time.

They had an extensive GF menu and were very knowledgeable.

"Mom" has Celiac. I have been there many times and they are one of the few I can say I have never gotten sick at. My favorite is probably their homemade gluten free manicotti. They handmake their own gluten free rolls and they are amazing. Certainly a Celiacs dream.

I can echo all the other reviews about the awesome menu and food! Also want to add that they handle dairy free really well too: the GF rolls, pasta, meatballs, fried chicken, and peanut butter cookies were not only gf but dairy free as well. Quite the find, we will go back next time we are in the area!

The most gluten free options in central Florida. Not to mention how good it tastes. The GF chicken parm is my favorite. Easily the best restaurant for Celiacs around.

Just had dinner here tonight... GF roll was a really nice touch! My gluten free lasagna was amazing, the salad was nice and fresh. Waitress was efficient and personable, for those that care. The others in my party did not order GF entrees, but both said their veal parm and the chicken cacciatore were delicious. Will be back! This place gets busy, so go early! The only negative was that my mom got red sauce on her shirt, which the owner noticed as she was passing by our table, but did not offer any club soda. Other than that.... Yum and no feeling lousy afterward!!
