I'm asymptomatic Celiac, so all I have to go on is their word, but I'm on vacation and pregnant with morning sickness. I elected to stay in while everyone was gone and had a huge pasta craving. I called in to see in advance if I'd be able to order GF on the app. There isn't a place to do it on the app, and he walked me through the whole thing, had me call him back when my order was in, and made sure it was totally gluten free. He was very knowledgeable and eager to help me. I got the Penne Sinatra, which is a rose sauce with chicken and it was exactly what I needed. Shout-out to Ben for going above and beyond. Very happy with my order.

Symptomatic Celiac

This restaurant is family owned and run, and they will make sure your food comes out exactly the way you want it - including taking all of the precautions needed for allergies/intolerances/Celiac. I asked them to use fresh water and cookware to prepare my GF pasta, and they did so. I (a very sensitive Celiac) did not get sick.

GF penne pasta is available with almost any of their sauces. I had the marinara dish, and it was out of this world. They also have GF spumoni ice cream for dessert. Overall, the food is fantastic!
