The staff here is so knowledgeable about celiac and their various gf options. My pasta was delicious and they even brought me gf bread out to the table! I will definitely be back here.

This place used to be amazing about taking care of gluten issues, but there have been some major red flags during my last two visits. The first one, my gluten-free grandmother ordered minestrone soup. They have two minestrone options, one with pasta and a GF soup. My grandma received the wrong one, and only found out after a few spoonfuls. Tonight, my “celiac” chicken paillard had a little glutenous angel hair noodle sitting under the arugula. I’m beyond disappointed as this was one of my favorite places to eat. Won’t be coming back.

Unbelievably delicious food. They have many options and all looked amazing, it took us forever to decide. You get bread, dessert, and appetizers which is rare. The Minestrone soup was amazing as were our entrees. I can't say enough about this place.

Went here with my husband. I looked all over Ann Arbor for a great place to have dinner AND dessert. This place checked both boxes and then some. I was so excited to get my own bread basket. We ordered GF pizza for an app and t was delicious. I had a seasonal spaghetti dinner that was Greek inspired. Perfection. And I had GF tiramisu for dessert! I would go back just for that dessert. It was so incredibly delicious. Our server was phenomenal. Can’t say enough about how great an experience it was. Oh and the moscato wine was wonderful too. I’m a sweet wine gal and I had to have a second glass.

PERFECT. The staff is wildly knowledgeable, and knows exactly what is necessary without any prompting or handholding. I had a pasta dish (pasta made in a dedicated water pot) which was absolutely wonderful. 5 stars, no question.

I cannot recommend this place more. Absolutely terrific meal, no reaction. So thankful to have some in-house pasta again since getting the celiac diagnosis. Tasted wonderful.

Edit: They just revamped their GF bread and it's terrific!

Gluten free pasta at a restaurant that doesn’t taste like cardboard? Amazing! “Allergy” precautions are taken, servers are knowledgeable & gluten free options are quite extensive. I had the Bolognese & would absolutely recommend!

Paesano's is amazing! Many pasta meals are easily made gluten free! This is the first place I have ever been offered a gluten free bread basket! It is different (more like little toasts) but a great option! The overall price is worth it!

incredible! worth the money. the waiter was very knowledgeable about gluten free dining accommodations. they even brought the amazing gluten free bread in a warm paper bag. the manager said they have been doing gluten-free for 25 years because the chef has a family member with Celiac disease

I had a bowl of gluten-free minestrone (make sure to tell them to not add the pasta to the soup). the gluten free tuna tartare appetizer was delicious. the maple glazed hen was awesome! I had it with gluten free pasta and marinara sauce. my friend had the gluten free pork tenderloin with spinach and red potatoes. it was delicious. they have a gluten free Tiramisu also.

look forward to returning

I appreciate that they have a gluten free option, but for the price I expected better. I have had much better gluten free pasta at Pallios and at Gratzi, their competition down town, and it was cheaper!

Very good GF food. We've been there about 5 times and have never had a problem. They have GF bread they will bring to the table (there might be a charge for it though). They offer several items on their menu gf.
