    They are not kidding when they say they take gluten free seriously! Upon hearing I was celiac, they immediately took away my napkin, utensils, and water glass. They replaced them with a different type of glass and a new set of utensils wrapped in a color-coded napkin (red is for celiacs and for allergies they use blue). I ordered garlic bread (which I haven’t seen anywhere else), pasta and the beignets. The garlic bread tasted pretty good and I got the real garlicky taste from it. The pasta (alfredo) was decent and the real winner was the beignets. They were denser than I thought they would be but they were delicious and I have wanted gluten free fried dough since I was diagnosed with celiac and now I can say I have had some! Everything came out on a red plate and when they brought the pasta out they even brought a red container of cheese so they could sprinkle some on my pasta. They have red clear water pitchers for celiacs and regular clear ones for non-celiacs and they make sure to only fill up the correct glasses with their pitchers. I am pretty sure I even saw they have a red pizza oven as well as a regular pizza oven and they have gluten free soap in the restroom. They also carry their ultra dedication over to leftover containers, as the container (and bag!) I was given for my leftovers both had “celiac” stickers on them. Literally anything you could think of (and some you might not have thought of) was accounted for. It was truly an amazing experience just seeing how all of the staff are trained to take celiacs seriously and ensure all they can in order to make sure we can eat out safely. We are only in the area for a few days but you can bet I would be a regular if I had one near me!

    L’équipe est bien formé face à la maladie cœliaque. Il y a un menu exclusivement dans gluten. Ils se lavent les mains régulièrement et utilisent des couverts d’une couleur différente afin de signifier la condition. De plus, les serveurs sont très sympathiques et prennent le temps bien expliquer ce que l’on peut consommer sans avoir de problème. Exemple je désirais un extra champignon et on m’a averti qu’il pourrait y avoir de la contamination croisée avec ceux-ci. Vraiment un service hors pair. Je recommande a tous sans aucune hésitation.

    Offers GF pizza and some other options. AMAZING salad, fantastic GF bread appetizer. pizza was good, they also offer vegan cheese (daiya). They were exceptional about cross-contamination. Our table even had a separate water pitcher that the servers were only allowed to use if they washed their hands first. And even if a nearby table asked for water, they had to wait for the servers to go get a different pitcher. Excellent service!

    Delicious garlic bread and pasta for a great lunch! My only complaint was that it took a few minutes to get a refill on my water but otherwise very celiac friendly.

    Super endroit pour les personnes souffrant de la maladie cœliaque. On prend soin de vous dès votre arrivée avec des ustensiles et une section du menu spécialement pour vous. Le personnel est au fait de la maladie cœliaque et vous pouvez observer le chef préparer votre assiette dans un coin de la cuisine dédié sans gluten. En plus, c'est très bon!

    Best gluten free friendly restaurant. The real deal, the only place that my daughter can eat fries. (Fryer dedicated to GF) they have bread, pasta, pizza all cooked in a Gf environment. Don't miss the Churro' s for desert!

    Great gluten-free pasta, they even bring you dedicated gluten-free plates and cutlery. Possibly the best gluten free restaurant in Montreal. Also they have gluten free cinnamon bread with icing dipping that's delicious, it's sort if like dominos cinna stix

    This lively restaurant had a dedicated service, not only a gluten free menu. Dishes and flatware were separate. There was a warm gluten free roll and croutons for the salad. The food was wonderful. It was easy to spot the gf diners because of the red plates, so I looked around to see how many of us were enjoying this service. I was the only one at that time but the waiter said that many come for the gf food. THERE IS EVEN GF SOAP inthe bathroom! Be sure to visit this place when you are in Montreal.
