We were laughed at when we asked about the gluten-free options they are "known for". The waiter literally told us to go somewhere else because everything is cross contaminated. When I said I would settle for a plain salad since everyone else was ready to order, he actually seemed disappointed that we opted to stay. After 45 minutes, he came out to tell us that the kitchen had lost our order and he had put a rush on the food. Once our food did arrive, everyone seemed happy with their meal. My salad was, well, lettuce with a few artichoke hearts, cheese slices and peppers. In the end, he dropped off our tickets (which were incorrect), said C-Ya then walked away. The hostess helped us pay our tabs so we could leave. Bottom line, I'm not sure how their gluten free options taste. I was really disappointed to find that the reviews were either inaccurate or this particular waiter simply did not want to serve me.

I am ecstatic we stumbled upon this place! We were driving through and a local told us about their massive gluten free offerings. I can’t remember the name of what I got, but it was a creamy tomato sauce with sausage crumbles and fresh parmigiana shredded on top of gluten free noodles. I will say their gluten free bread is subpar. Pass on that but enjoy the huge heaping helping of hearty delicious pasta. It’s been a long time since I’ve been really satisfied with a gluten free meal out on the town. I will be back!

This place is amazing. So many gluten-free options but it was hard to decide. I even have a gluten-free garlic bread. They do have a gluten-free menu and our server was amazing. He helped with every question we had.

Most of the pasta here can be made gluten free and they offer a gluten free bread. I had the Alfredo with chicken and broccoli that was very good and the staff said the sauce does not have a flour thickener. They also offer marinara (my mom said it was a little spicy) and a pesto (my brother-in-law said it was very creamy. It is not dedicated gf but I did not get glutened.

We eat here all the time when visiting Moab. My son has celiac and he gets the GF pizza. We’ve never had a problem, and it’s a really delicious crust! They have a big gf menu offering. We were there on Memorial Day so it was extremely busy but they were very knowledgeable about cross contamination, and I wasn’t concerned at all.

I told the waiter that I had Celiacs and I’m also dairy free atm. They put down the order as a gluten allergy and was very happy with how the pizza came out. Although about 20 later I was in a horrible state. Definitely had some kind of cross contamination or had unseen gluten on it. Felt horrible.

This was a miss for me personally. I tried the Neapolitan pasta with chicken. It comes with their Alfredo, pesto and marinara sauces side by side on a bed of gf noodles. The chicken was horribly dry and at $7 was not worth it at all. The pesto is a very strange flavor and doesn’t seem like a normal pesto. The Alfredo was bland and completely forgettable. The marinara was delicious! The waitress did mention that they had to boil separate water for my noodles so it took a little longer for my food but I was completely fine with that. As usual there is no bread to go with it :(

When I asked to speak with someone who could help me, someone came out right away and say they use the same oven for pizza (which I can’t eat anyways bc dairy) but they do clean the oven before they use it each time! And they have separate pasta that is gf!

They have a separate gf menu that is awesome! Most of the same things from the main menu but made gf. I got the margarita pasta and it was delicious! I am a super sensitive celiac and it didn’t make me sick at all! Just make sure you let them know you have celiacs before you order

Great food, gluten free pasta was cooked perfectly and the gluten free menu which has a lot of options. Very, very clean restaurant, every server was cleaning in between waiting on their tables. Our server wasn't the best (we waited a while to get water and our food came out and we had to ask for silverware and napkins and waited about 5 minutes until we asked another server that brought it) and then had to ask for the check. After watching the other servers I believe it was just ours that was possibly having an off day. Would definitely go back!

Went to Pasta Jay's for dinner. They have a separate GF menu. We had the balsamic Brussels sprouts as an appetizer, which was really good. I'm not keen on GF pasta, so I avoided those dinners. Instead I had the dinner salad with shrimp, which was pretty good. They also offer GF pizzas. I didn't get sick! I'd recommend this place.

Plain pasta with Alfredo sauce was very bland, and I would pass on the GF flat bread - it’s just the GF pizza crust and very plain. If I came again I would recommend paying a few dollars more for better tasting food. However they were very knowledgeable about Celiac and I did not get sick.

There were many gluten free options since they have gluten free pasta. Most of the sauces (pesto alfredo and marinara) were gluten free. The waiter was knowledgeable about gluten sensitivity. I had chicken and broccoli with alfredo sauce which I thought was excellent.

They can make gluten free penne. Be warned, however, it took them 55 minutes to cook it and serve it. It is freezing inside in the summer. All in all a more grueling ordeal than the morning hike through desert canyons.

Went here because it had multiple 5 star ratings and was extremely disappointed! Waited more than 45 minutes for food with one other table in the restaurant (it was mid-afternoon on a weekday), was given non-GF garlic bread to "hold me over" for free, when we got our food the GF pasta was stuck together and had not been stirred when cooking, other pasta meal was burnt, was given attitude when complained, also this place was more expensive than I expected, about $15 a person for lunch

My husband ordered the chicken fettucine alfredo, which comes with penne noodles if you're gluten-free. The noodles were cooked to perfection, and the sauce was absolutely delicious.

I ordered the gluten-free pizza with sausage and roasted bell peppers, which was delicious too.

The portion sizes were on the bigger side, so next time we'll probably split a dish, but we went away with happy tummies and leftovers for later!

Amazing food! Menu contains a great deal of options, a bit pricy, but no more than most of the areas offerings. Gluten free ravioli in Alfredo sauce is to die for. We came at an odd time, one of their ovens was down so unfortunately no gluten free bread for us, but it’s a comfort to know they have it. Other potential dishes include seafood based Mac and cheese, pizza, many soup/salad offerings etc.
