Unsure how to rate this. It’s delicious, and I’ve eaten here safely once. The second time I visited was for my birthday and I got very sick afterwards. I ordered the same things both times, polenta appetizer, pesto chicken pasta (gf) entree, and caramel bundino (kind of a caramel custard) dessert. My waitress marked my allergy and said she’d have the kitchen not use any pasta water in my polenta, and use separate water for my pasta. Nonetheless I still got sick the second time around.

Gluten free pizza and bread here are definitely not celiac safe. Our server told us pizza is cooked on the same grill as the regular pizza. "It's too small back there for a separate gluten free area." Gluten free bread is just their gf pizza crust. Which is also cooked on the regular grill. Our celiac family member got gf pasta and said it was good. Just a bummer because we read reviews here and chose North for a celebration meal, because we mistakenly thought celiac safe pizza and bread were an option. I even asked about it when I made the reservation and was assured pizza and bread were celiac safe.

The food was delicious! GF options are all marked on the menu and GF pasta can be substituted in any of their pasta dishes. The Chicken Pesto was great, and the pasta was so good I had to ask the server to double-check that it was in fact gluten-free. I'm new to being a Celiac, so did not ask questions about separate kitchen space or changing gloves, etc. On the menu, they do explicitly say something along the lines of "while we offer gluten-free options, our kitchen is not gluten-free". Cross-contamination is certainly a risk but based on talking with our server, I have confidence that they would be accommodating and handle GF items carefully if asked.

I emailed the restaurant before we traveled to Denver. They list some gf on the menu, but I wanted to see what else was there. I was emailed back by the head regional chef for multiple locations. He told me everything that was safe. He also said the staff was very knowledgeable and would help me as well. I felt great going there. We went for our anniversary and it was one of the best meals I ever had! I felt so taken care of! It was so good that we went back a few days later with friends and family for pizza!

I had dinner here last night and it was an amazing experience! The entire staff is so knowledgeable about the gluten free options and great about double checking for cross contamination with each dish. We had a salad, pizza and pasta and everything was delicious. I felt completely safe eating here and will definitely be coming back!

We ate dinner here as a family in September. My teenagers loved the food as much as I did. The Waiter went above and beyond, in fact all the staff was impressive. The staff was Very knowledgeable about celiac and eager to make our dining experience positive. I would without hesitation eat here again.

Server (Emily) was knowledgeable about GF options and pointed out everything on the menu that was GF or could be made GF. GF pizza was outstanding!

I had one of the best meals I’ve experienced since having to go GF! They have GF pasta and I honestly couldn’t tell the difference. Would recommend and would go again for sure.

Had options for GF pasta and pizza. There was 3 of us all that were gluten free with different sensitivities. By half way through I could tell it wasn’t gluten free and had issues. And by the time the other two got home they also had issues

Ordered a salad without bread as the GF options were only penne pasta and premade cauliflower crust pizza. Kale salad was good with salmon atop. Server was good to point out where cross contamination might be possibe.

BEWARE! I ordered a gluten free pizza from them to be delivered and called to confirm it would be GF before even placing my order. When the pizza arrived I suspected it looked too good to be true. I called again and they said "oh we actually ran out of the gluten free crust". They clearly do NOT understand the severity of allergens and offered no compensation for the lie/mistake. I can’t speak for their dine in experience, but I can’t imagine why they would think it was okay to do that. I wish they had been honest about being out of the crust during my first phone call and I would have ordered elsewhere.
