I give this restaurant 1 star for a very friendly waiter, and another star for the availability of GF pasta and pizza. The chicken fettuccine and the chicken piccata were very greasy, not very appealing, the piccata was overloaded with capers, and they were out of artichokes. Being picky, the plastic dinnerware has seen better days. Will not return.

They supposedly have gluten free pasta. Based on my stomach's reaction while I was still there I'd say what I got was not gluten free. I mentioned it to the server who argued with me. Called the manager the next day he argued as well. Given that I had a face rash the next day I'm pretty sure it was regular pasta. I don't think they take it seriously and will not be back.

Found non gluten free pasta mixed in with gluten free. Manager apologized and said it happened because they prepare both gluten free and non gluten free pasta in the same strainer. They have no understanding of what being gluten free is and this should not be considered a gluten free Celiac friendly restaurant.
