They have a gluten-free pizza crust which was okay. Fortunately, I did not get any adverse reaction from gluten so I feel safe to say it's okay for celiacs. Unfortunately, I got horrific heartburn from it so I won't be going back.

DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU HAVE CELIAC DISEASE.

Asked my server if they have a gluten free menu, he says no but they have GF bread and pasta and some options. He brings out bread. My mistake was eating it without confirming if this is GF bread. Spoiler, it was regular bread. I order my meal GF and specify it's an allergy, my date orders his regular meal containing gluten. The server brings out another round of bread and I ask if its GF bread because now my date is here and he does not have a food allergy. He says no its regular bread, and I notice it looks exactly the same as the bread I just ate. Now I am nervous and ask if the bread I just finished eating was GF? He says no it was also regular bread.

On my way running to the restroom to empty my stomach, I got stopped on my way over by 2 staff members who would not let me through without a mask. I had to go back across the restaurant just to go get my mask to go back again to be able to vomit.

I will never be coming here again and do not recommend going if you have any food allergies or sensitivities. I would give zero stars if I could.

The staff was very knowledgeable on taking good care of the food, and delivered it perfectly safe. The food is also delicious, and gluten-free Italian is at its best here. I continue to go back all the time, as it is one of my favorite restaurants. Five stars!

This just might be my favorite restaurant of all time!! Majority of the menu can be made gluten free - including fried mozzarella, pizza, pasta, and favorites like chicken parmesan! They also have gluten free rolls! They are truly understanding of cross contamination, and I have always felt safe eating here - and I have eaten here MANY times (and never have gotten sick!). This is for sure a must try for anyone in the area!!

Excellent Italian food and superb care taken towards those with all food allergies. GF-specific, they can adapt about 85% of their menu which is pretty astounding for Italian food. Manager came and separately served both dishes to assure they were GF. Spectacular every time!

We took my son here who has celiac. The waiter was very nice and although I don’t think he really knew what celiac or gluten was, he assured us the pizza was gluten free and precautions were taken to prevent cross contamination. My kids enjoyed the pizza and had no issues. Note that the GF pizza crust only comes in 1 size, so it can’t be subbed out as part of the kids meal.

I am vegan gluten free. I was blown away by the service, professionalism, atmosphere. I asked the waiter to have the chef make anything VGF. He knew immediately what I meant. Came back with some suggestions and i ended up w a delicious GF pasta, mushroom, tomato, spinach and garlic dish. They have a good GF menu. The table settings were beautiful -cloth table cloths, good china, high quality utensils. The manager and the chef himself came to the table to make sure i was satisfied. Everyone was fabulous. i can not give enough stars.

One of our go-to places to eat a special meal. Plenty to choose from on the menu including appetizers (mozzarella frittata and antipasto are our favorites). We've never been disappointed and never had any issues. Highly recommended!

I had a fantastic salad and risotto with no reaction. The GF bread was a packaged roll and not so goid, but I was happy for the safe meal and nice surroundings.

All of the food is amazing and they make everything to order so anything can be modified. My best friend works at this branch. She says it is considered as important to be allergy trained as it is to learn the menu for servers and hosts alike at this place. Have never gotten sick here.

Our go-to area restaurant for dinner because they handle gluten free and celiac requests very well and the food is delicious! Ask for the GF dinner rolls at the start of the meal and they’ll bring out for you with your own dipping oil! Gf pasta can be subbed into most pasta dishes, gf pizza is made separately and is very good. Usually a manager will bring out my dish to assure that it’s been prepared without cross contamination and for celiac requirements.

Pizza was extremely undercooked, to the point that we couldn’t really eat it. We used to frequent their location on Newbury Street and always had great experiences, but we were disappointed with the takeout meal we got from this one.
