They have gluten free linguine and ziti, cooked in separate water. You cannot get the meatballs, but they do have other proteins available. No lasagna or baked ziti, either.

My bigger challenge was the cheese, because I’m dairy free but still strongly prefer cheeze for my Italian dishes. They did have a large selection of vegetarian offerings that could be made vegan if you hold the cheese. Our server pointed out some dishes that she said worked well for the dairy free crowd.

I settled on a broccolini ziti dish with olive oil, garlic, and hazelnuts and herbs, and added on some grilled chicken. The ziti was soggy and difficult to scoop up because it was covered in oil. The toppings were tasty. The chicken was good.

If your only challenge is gluten, this will probably be fine. I found the experience somewhere between disappointing and acceptable, and probably won’t return.

Had a great experience here! I’ve wanted to try it for a while but was skeptical because there’s always a risk of cross contamination when visiting a restaurant that serves “normal” pasta. But I’m so glad I tried it! The servers are very knowledgeable and ours helped me to find a dish that would be safe. They can make most of their dishes GF. They were very careful and my food was flagged gluten free when it came out. I have not had a reaction and I would have by now if I was going to. So I say it was a successful endeavor!

We are leaving Portland and happened to stop here before heading to the airport. So glad we did! Great service, delicious and unique drinks (blood Orange rosemary soda anyone?) and the best gf pasta I’ve ever eaten. Hands down would eat here again.

I went here two days in a row, it had good reviews for celiac and it was close to my work conference. The first day I was so impressed and not sick. The second day I ordered GF again, it came out with GF flags. But I am up sick from gluten, and I usually am not sensitive to CC, so I am wondering if all of my pasta was not gf.

I got a plain, GF spaghetti dish with butter and cheese, and while I personally did not enjoy the food, the staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. - My favorite part was the little flag stating "GLUTEN FREE" they had on my food when they brought it out. 💕

Wonderful pasta! There's no up charge for gluten free noodles. My daughter and I get sick from the smallest contamination and we were fine after eating here. Knowledgable staff, very friendly, and would definitely come here again. Only thing that would make it better was if there was a replacement for the gluten filled bread.

This place is great! When ordering I mentioned I'm gluten intolerant and the server let me know they have gf ziti noodles. I actually loved them over having regular fettuccine noodles. My husband got gf noodles too, so we could share our meals. I would recommend this place to everyone! We also had a delicious Caesar salad and our daughter loved the spaghetti noodles and marinara.

They always do a wonderful job. I’m celiac and very sensitive to gluten. They have lots of gluten free options, very careful and they label the food as gluten free. I usually get the Bolognese with Gluten Free Ziti.

We ate at Pastini's for the first time a few weeks back. My daughter is celiac. They were very informed and aware of GF sensitivities and also let us now the owners have celiac in the family. My daughter had the Carbonara but we understand they can substitute GF pasta for most any of the dishes. We had a great dinner with no complications and will be back.
