Service was good, server was knowledgeable. i called ahead, and they confimed that they have (one shape of) GF pasta, and can substitute in any pasta dish. Other dishes can be made GF. We had caprese salad and 2 GF penne pastas, both tasty. Not sure about cross contamination, we're not very sensitive but it was fine. Update: 2nd visit, had sole, polenta, and mixed veggies, everything tasted great and felt good after!

Food looked delicious, but I didn’t wind up eating anything. Was in a bit of a rush to begin with, ordered polenta and filet mignon thinking that those should be fine. Explained that I had Celiac to the waiter. Tested the food when it came out, and it tested positive for gluten on the Nima. Can’t be sure what the source of cross-contamination was, but was an extremely disappointing experience.
