    I wish I could give this zero stars. This restaurant is NOT Celiac friendly. I went to Tennessee during the hurricane Irma evacuation, and was pleased to find Franklin and the surrounding areas had a plethora of safe places for me to eat. I checked all the reviews and only ate at celiac friendly places. I went to Pasta & Cream and ordered my gluten free bowl of pasta, and when they brought it out, it was linguine. CLEARLY, I knew this wasn't gluten free because they only had gluten free penne. When the server took it back, I heard the chef start complaining about it and he said "It ain't gonna hurt her." I should have run... They came back with penne and the server assured me it was safe. I'd like everyone to know that I had the worst gluten reaction of my life, and I've been diagnosed celiac for over 5 yrs. Twenty minutes after eating it, I was sick from both ends so severely that I was vomiting blood, passed out and the ambulance had to be called. This is a BAD place for celiacs, PLEASE do not go there. I know it wasn't food poisoning because my husband ate out of my bowl (he's not celiac or gluten sensitive) and he was fine. I realize my reactions to gluten are more severe than some, but they clearly do not have safe practices for celiacs here.

    I ate here a few times and was fine but I'm changing my rating unfortunately because I got glutened awful here. I'm pretty sure they made the gluten free pasta in the same water as regular or something. The owner was busy so another employee took our order and didn't seem to know about the gf options even when I double specified I had celiac. I didn't think anything of it cause usually they are good about cross contamination but by the time we got home I was violently ill and had to miss a very important event that day because I couldn't leave the house. Not sure if I will be going back after that.

    Great pasta restaurant!! I'm gluten sensitive and the staff took time to ensure I understood cooking preparations and options. The rest of my family enjoyed it as well.

    Been here several times, won't be going back. On my last visit, they made my pasta with meatballs instead of chicken. I took it up to the counter to ask for my order to be corrected. Instead of making a new dish, they took the meatballs off and replaced it with the chicken. I then asked the owner if the pasta was the same as before (meatballs contained gluten, big cross contamination). He told me that it was fine and I wouldn't get sick because he knows all about celiac. Extremely rude and then tried to lie about the whole situation. Also, owner said he doesn't know if salad dressings contain gluten, but he bases his business around serving gluten free food. Stay away if you are sensitive to gluten, owner doesn't care at all if food makes you sick- he even rolled his eyes at me when I asked about cross contamination.

    In Franklin for a conference. tried this place based on this app. the food was great and was made while we waited. the gluten free pasta is penned only. I had the vegetarian and added chicken to get the veggies. It has either garlic and oil or marinara. I had the oil and it was great, not heavy. Would like to try cream based.

    The gluten free pasta was wonderful, all the sauces are gluten free, the staff was quick to point out any non-gf items, and each meal is prepared separately so there were no cross-contamination worries. Very kid friendly too!

    The food was excellent, and prepared fast even though it is freshly cooked for your order. Please check this place out it was very good experience. The staff was beyond friendly as I expressed my concern that it had to be gluten free. 10/10

    Every sauce is gluten free, tons of options. But I have to say that was The Best Alfredo sauce I've ever had! Each meal is freshly made while you wait. Highly recommend this place!

    I was out with my friend who has celiac, and it was just so nice to see her be able to choose ANYTHING from the menu with confidence that she would not get I'll. The Cajun shrimp was creamy and perfectly spiced. The Ivan blackened chicken was delicious!

    Had a great meal here a couple of weeks back. I went after seeing it listed on this app and I felt like I needed to go try it. Eating pasta at a restaurant? Crazy talk, but sure lets try it out! I was a little nervous because we were going here for lunch before heading into franklin to shop and wander for the day. God knows when you're out walking around in a small town, the last thing you want is stomach trouble, but the reviews convinced me. I believe it was the owner who was there. He cooked for us and was super knowledgable. He was great and friendly and cooked our food for us fresh to order. I got the Alfredo and my boyfriend got the red sauce. Both dishes were tasty, maybe a little salty for my liking, but still really good. Plus I enjoy the novelty of eating a bowl of pasta outside of my own home enough that I will go back! It was really good. I was out and walking around the franklin shops and then that galleria mall for hours and felt just fine. I was so glad!

    The owner was great. And all of their sauces are gluten free and absolutely delicious. Right off of I-65, if you are traveling south of Nashville. Next to Dollar General behind McDonalds.

    Amazing freshly made gluten free pasta. Fast service, reasonable prices. Wish there was a restaurant like this in Murray, KY. I think the owners have really found a niche (or bigger ) market. But also serve really tasty, well prepared food, gluten free or not.
