    As a GF student at Cornell, I can confidently say this is the best and safest gluten free food I have ever had. The entire facility is gluten-free, so there is no fear of cross contamination and I have never gotten sick! The variety of food is huge, and they have items GF people usually can't eat - cupcakes, stir fry, grilled cheese, tostadas. Much of the food is also healthy and unique, and there are plenty of vegetarian, vegan and other allergen-free foods. They also have fun theme dinner nights! Risley is the place to go for GF food in Ithaca.

    I work on campus and eat here frequently. Multiple hot options, including soup and an omelet station. Cold stations include a salad bar and fruit. Around $12 for lunch. I would say it is probably one of the only truly safe GF options in Ithaca, since most restaurants around here can't seem to figure out the cross-contamination issue.

    I am so impressed with this dining hall! They recently became gf certified and are also peanut- and tree nut-free. The chef takes things very seriously and makes everything taste so good! Worth the trip if you are in Ithaca. Easier to park on campus at night.
