I feel safe eating here and do not get sick. They can make most of the menu GF, but you’ll have to do some mods to eat most/any of the apps or salads. A lot have breadcrumbs etc

The staff was very knowledgeable about Celiac and very careful about the chicken I added to the salad. The waiter was incredibly helpful. They offer gluten free pasta and pizza but I’d suggest asking more questions about how they prepare those.

The gf bread is a pizza crust the toast but it's good. Salmon was tasty, got it with a risotto. Which was delicious. The staff is knowledgeable about gf options and very pleasant.

I ordered a gluten free pasta online and put in the notes that I can’t have gluten. My body ended up having a strongly negative reaction to it, so there was definitely gluten in the dish. I feel a little anxious about going back there again. Maybe if you order in person they’re more careful to not cross contaminate, but I don’t know for certain.

I loved getting to go out to eat with my friends and be able to enjoy a good similar meal to them! The margarhita pizza on gluten free crust was amazing. I would definitely go back. The waiter seemed confident in the gluten free aspect and was sure to point out every option that I could get, which included pasta and appetizers. (Btw, I went to the one in Austin.)

We walked out before ordering. Our party sat inside, and even though the windows were partially opened, the gluten was overwhelming in the air.
