There is not a separate prep area and flour is flying everywhere in this place. I watched them prepare my pizza and the staff do not change gloves or use separate utensils even though the manager told me they are supposed to. I had high hopes for this place because a friend told me their gluten free pizza was decent but I wasn’t even able to try it due to the obvious cross contamination.

I came here and was shocked to see gluten free pasta AND gluten free pizza. I had the gluten free penne pasta with the ziti as my meal. The pasta was great and the dinner was delicious. I have celiac disease and can get cross contamination from food easily. This was a safe meal and I had no issues. I’ll definitely be back again!

I don't know if the pizza was celiac "safe" since I'm not extremely sensitive, but the gf pizza was one of the best I've ever had! I ordered the Villagio - chicken, mushrooms, etc., excellent crust. I had to make sure it was gf because it was so good - crispy, not chewy. A little pricey, but well worth it in my opinion. They chef said they have just undergone a change from being franchised to corporately owned. I will definitely be returning.

Wanted to love this place, but several things went wrong. No lemonade, no Sprite. They got my son's order wrong. My GF pasta was contaminated with a non GF noodle. Nice surroundings and friendly staff. What a shame.

Worst experience I've ever had with food that was labeled gf, but clearly wasn't. I became extremely ill that evening after eating the food here.

Uninspired food. The balsamic vinegar on Caprese salad tasted like karo syrup. Very bland Alfredo sauce. GF kids complained of stomach aches after we left. They ate pizza and pasta.

They do a great job with the gluten free pizza! I did get sick from the pasta which they got confused and gave me regular pasta instead of gluten free so would only have pizza there going forward!

We called in to order pizza for pickup. The gentleman I spoke with was extremely helpful and the restaurant was happy to take extra precautions to ensure our little girl wasn’t “glutened.” The pizza was tasty and safe!
