I originally gave them a good review, but my last experience a few months back changed that. When my GF rotini was brought out, there were other few pieces of regular pasta mixed in. When the manager came out, I questioned how it could happen with what their info says about cooking it in separate kettle. He admitted that it just comes in a bag and they microwave it. If that's what I'm going to eat, and still get cross-contaminated, I will just buy an Udi's frozen meal from the grocery and eliminate the risk. It was pretty disappointing.

They offer a decent selection of gf items. Our waiter at the time had gluten sensitivity and was super, super helpful with the whole process.

I'm surely biased as I now work at this location but I can say with confidence that all gf items automatically trigger the kitchen staff to change gloves and clean the grill (which they actually do). They take great care with all allergies and take this very seriously. All gf items are automatically flagged but other allergies require the server to flag the allergy for the kitchen.

The items marked gf on the menu are accurate but not complete. Look at the gf menu online or in the ziosk to see the other options (the zuppa Toscana and gf chicken parm are very tasty).

This place used to be really good with gluten free pasta ! But as I was eating my dinner I noticed regular pieces of pasta (spaghetti noodles AND shells) they only serve gluten free rotini so I know for a fact that the spaghetti and shells were not gluten free, (not celiac friendly) it’s a shame because the staff is very kind and friendly
