We had a great experience here for my celiac daughter. Waitress was awesome and very knowledgeable! She let us know that the gf rotini is not even cooked in the kitchen. It comes pre packaged and they simply heat it up in the microwave. My daughter also had the gf soup and loved it! Our waitress told us that when someone has an allergy it shows up as bright red on the order screen. And she went the extra mile to alert everyone in the kitchen that our daughter had celiac.

Be sure to ask that your GF pasta be cooked in separate, fresh boiling water. If not, they cook it in the SAME WATER AS GLUTEN PASTA!!! Seriously, what's the point in a celiac ordering GF pasta if they're going to cover it in gluten water!!!???

As far as the food goes it was good, and the woman up front, Susan, was AMAZING. However, this is probably as far as service goes one of the worst take out experiences I have ever had period. The order wasn't right, the girl who took the order was the rudest person I have ever dealt with period. Firstly the girl barely spoke to me and when she did it was obvious she didn't want to. Secondly, I hand her the cash for the food and she just stared at me. It wasn't until I said something that she even did the cash exchange for me to pay for it. Beyond rediculous.

Waiter was not very knowledgeable, but everything worked out in the end. They only have rotini and then you can choose from a couple different sauces and meat choices that are marked gf. Food was great and no reactions. Update May, 2021: they got my order mixed up and I got glutened.

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).
