    Went recently - Not sure if new owners but no more gluten free bread basket Instead got broken breadsticks in a cellophane bag No butter - hummus in a little bowl in an Italian restaurant. Got gluten free fried mozzarella Was 2 thick round breaded circles that were not melted & cold Ordered gluten free linguini alfredo Only had gluten free penne or spaghetti I got the spaghetti It was very yellow- like a butter sauce Not bad but not alfredo Gluten free plates had an orange sticker circle to mark them which was great Leftovers were also well packaged & marked w orange circle. I did not get sick but not sure I will go back

    Overall good dinning experience. Server was very attentive & food was good. We'll be back to try some other items on the menu. Tip. Let the sever know right away about GF. Ours was great, but she placed regular bread basket on table right away.

    This was by far our most favorite Italian GF restaurant! Lovely ambiance, felt pampered. Fantastic selection of GF pasta, chicken, seafood. Topped off with homemade GF cheesecake. Great care taken to prevent cross contamination, GF plates labeled clearly. Everyone should eat here! Also quite reasonably priced.

    Great option if you need celiac safe. Kitchen for gluten free is downstairs. Lots of options, very well informed and brought my daughter out her own breadsticks and dip so no one would cross contaminate. Everyone enjoyed, gf and non gf.

    Excellent GF Certified Italian! I have 2 children with Celiac and the whole family can have a delicious safe meal here. Ask for Dominic, his daughter has Celiac. This is a gem.

    Food here is excellent as is the service. The best part is that they have gluten free on their menu for my celiac wife. They mark the dishes with a yellow dot when they come out. It helps to know that the kitchen was aware. They have a separate area in the kitchen for gluten free food prep so my wife feels safe. Spoke to the owners last time and they told us their daughter has celiac so they understand.

    Have safely eaten here 3+ times even though I'm a Celiac who is very sensitive to cross contamination. GIG certified, they have dedicated GF kitchen space. Will return many more times without worry since GF meals are served with yellow stickers to label plates. Besides, who can turn down a GF cannoli?!

    Amazing food! They ask who is the celiac and that I love. The owners kid has Celiac. I even had a canoli. They have a full menu for us!

    Wonderful meal here - the owner and waitress both took care of us, and were very understanding of concerns about cross-contamination. We had GF cannoli to finish the meal off!

    Tried this restaurant after finding it on findmeglutenfree. Was greeted by the owner when I arrived. Service was excellent and food was delicious. Owner explained that his daughter is celiac and that's why he provides such an extensive gluten free menu. He went into detail about how they prevent cross contamination and was very considerate. Will visit again!

    Delicious italian food! Gluten free options marked on menu, they can do most of their menu, for an extra $2.00. I didn't get sick! Will definitely be going back!

    I love papazzio! Had my son's 1st birthday party here. The gluten free food is really great. A good place for celiacs if they need to have a private party. They will shut down the restaurant if you have at least 30 people.

    Love this place! Almost the entire menu can be made gluten free & they are excellent at avoiding cross contamination. They even put a sticker dot on the side of your plate so you are reassured it's gluten free. I've eaten there a bunch of times and never been glutenized. And the food is delicious! It's so nice to feel like a normal person and be able to eat almost anything on the menu again!

    Upscale Italian with a very extensive GF menu. Without asking, the owner came over and explained the CC procedures in detail. They have a GIG certified kitchen. Most importantly, the food was awesome!
