    Good gluten free menu. They even have gluten free crackers to serve with the cheese and meat plates. Pasta was tastey!

    Absolutely fantastic. So, so yummy and tons of gf options. Our waitress had the head chef make my gf things to be completely sure there was no cross contamination. They can make any pasta gluten free!

    We enjoyed a delicious Italian meal here, family style. They brought out rice crackers instead of bread and the server was really on top of our celiac needs and checked a number of times with the kitchen. He ensured they boiled the pasta in separate water although I think this is standard protocol. Unfortunately none of the desserts are gf although they have sorbet. Overall a safe and great experience!

    Gluten free fettuccini Alfredo was amazing. Cypress salad and chicken soup also yummy. Super loud inside so grab a patio seat.

    I have crohn's and I've found that gluten free food eases my symptoms. The food here was very tasty. I ordered the ribs, sautéed spinach, and chocolate gelato. The chocolate gelato wasn't on the gluten free menu, but the waiter said that it didn't have gluten. I'm not sure which of the foods I ate caused it, but I had a stomach ache afterwards.

    I went here based off of reviews from another site. I am so glad I did!!! The gf fusilli was perfectly cooked and the vodka sauce made me want to lick the plate. I tried the duck prosciutto and another type of salami and again it was awesome!!! The manager checked on is three times to make sure we were happy. My 6 year olds were happy!

    sauces were really good, gluten free pasta is the same as most places. hard to eat family style with one person doing gluten free.... but still pretty good.

    Great place! We just had wine and got a plate with cheese, meat, and little sides. They have a GF menu and it looked like they had good options for meals too. Everything was great and we were able to sit outside and people watch while enjoying the beautiful weather! Hope to go back for a meal next time we're in town!

    We liked it so much the first time that we went back again two days later. I have celiac and safely enjoyed two fabulous meals. The first visit was a snack, so we ordered a meat/cheese tray, which turned out to be enough for a meal. They put my gluten free crackers on the huge tray of delicious meats and brought my husband a plate of delicious bread on a separate plate. It was all simply perfect. Be sure and ask what other meats are available besides the ones on the extensive gluten free menu. There are several! The next visit was gluten free pasta. The bartender/servers are crazy knowledgable about cross-contamination and assured me there was separate water and procedures for gluten free orders. My husband had the non-gf ravioli, and although it was his view of "traditional" ravioli smothered in red sauce, he said it was very good. I used the regular menu as inspiration for my gluten free pasta creation. Deeeelish! No problems for two meals. We almost never eat at the same restaurant twice on a a trip. We just couldn't say no!!

    Celiac family had a great experience here. The kids had pasta, while we had a diverse array of tapas. I loved the clams and vodka sauce. We had fondu and sorbet. The food was reasonably priced, but the wine I had was ok. The waiter was knowledgable, but the staff brought out gluten bread on our food twice. They took it back without complaint and appear to have gone through the trouble to remake each dish as requested. They comped our dessert, which was unnecessary. We were just happy they took us seriously.

    Great food and knowledgeable staff. The menu had lots of options to choose from. The server ran an ingredient past me just to double check everything was GF. My food was so good and I felt good after eating here, would definitely go back.

    In my pre-diagnosis days, I used to love making my own pasta and this was my favorite place to eat. I had the gluten free pasta, and I literally shed a tear because I felt like I got a part of myself back. It tasted so good that I didn't feel like it was only great for being gluten free. Food is amazing and the large amount of options made me feel like a "normal" person going out to eat.

    Yes. Yes. A million times yes! I am extremely sensitive to gluten and cross contamination with gluten (not to mention my list of other food issues) and they were so amazing. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff went above and beyond. If you want the best environment possible (for any mood), best customer service, best food, and a stress free night this is the place for you! The manager Alysia is also incredible. She will definitely make you come back time and time again!

    Wow!! Not only could they accommodate my family who has celiac plus dairy and soy allergies but the food was phenomenal. Additionally, they squeezed us in for a reservation when I called to check about allergens. They were totally booked but found us a spot at the time we wanted since our dining options are so limited. Yes, it is noisy but what bustling restaurant in Chicago isn't? Outside seating takes care of that... We took our 4 and 8 year olds and they loved every bite. Fantastic service. Highly recommend!!!

    This is a must visit when I'm in town. Beet salad, caprese, shrimp risotto, pancetta wrapped stuffed dates drizzled in honey...you can't go wrong. No gfree bread but with all the great options, you won't be missing it :-)

    I went for lunch on a Monday, and was able to try a few different plates from their tapas style menu. It was really good especially the scallops and the stuffed dates. It was a little pricey, but I'd go back again.

    My husband and I went at 8pm on a Saturday night. It was so loud, i had to shout standing next to my husband or else we couldn't hear each other. We had higher expectations, since they have such a large gluten free menu. We were seated and given menus. We requested their gluten free menus; several minutes later she brings us only one menu. We had baskets of bread dumped onto our table twice (lots of back waiters and expediters). We placed our order with our server: prosciutto, fontina cheese, capresse salad, and shrimp risotto. Various expediters brought various courses at different times. The prosciutto and cheese selections were plated together with a stack of bruschetta (gluten) on the plate. It was so loud, the expediter couldn't hear us. When he finally heard us, he indicated that the server didn't specify gluten free on the ticket. The risotto was good, but they brought us sausage instead of shrimp (bill said shrimp risotto). We ended up eating it anyhow, since it was a long time before server ever checked up on us. Food was tasty, but service was terrible. The loud room made communication difficult. When you could talk with an expediter, they were helpful. I can't believe that they have such a large gluten free menu, yet no way to code the ticket so that the chef/expediter knows it is gluten free. That may have prevented them from trying to serve us gluten so many times, if the expediters checked tickets before delivering plates. We won't be back again. Oh--and there are no gluten free crackers/bread, so bring your own or go without. :-(
