    Not celiac friendly. I've tried twice and each time, I was so sick.

    they have a decent gluten free section. i am allergic to wheat vs celiac and I did have an allergic reaction. i did not get pasta(bc made with corn flour), but had their seafood appe and a ceasar salad with no croutons as steak. it all tasted great but makes me wary now.

    I am celiac and this is our go to place when we don't want to go far from home. Very celiac friendly, good gluten free options and their filet is the best in Richmond.

    such a good menu! food was delicious and our server was so attentive to ensure I was aware of all of the gluten-free options. good atmosphere as well. If we lived there and weren't just in town for business, it would be a regular date place for us!

    Extremely salty, which I could have dealt with but, I got very sick after eating here. Specifically stated I had celiac, didn't seem to matter. Wish I could give 0 stars

    I wanted to like this place. Really, I did. We went on a Monday. Place was half empty yet it still took over an hour and a half to get out entrees, 45 minutes to get appetizers, etc. son ordered gf spaghetti...they brought penne. Waiter then said penne was the only gf option. Half the items on the gf menu no longer available as they have a "new"menu. Seafood platter was terrible. Chicken Marsala had way way too much pepper. Didn't even taste like Marsala! My non gf son liked his chicken parm. Waiter claimed cook was not acting right so "something must be going on with him". What does that even mean? He then said, "I wish I could give you a discount, but...." 85 dollars and a crappy meal. My son joked they they charged us for the wait. Never ever will we return.

    The Caprese & Chicken alla Griglia were amazing! I personally wasn't a fan of the crème brûlée but other than that we love this place.

    They offered a separate full menu dedicated to gluten free options and our waitress was very knowledgable about their GF items. She instilled a lot of confidence that the kitchen would take every precaution to prevent cross-contamination. What we loved the best was that the food was so delicious it didn't feel like he was missing out in any way. Atmosphere was comfortable and friendly. We will definitely return.

    The staff was very helpful and knowledgable. I ordered the best mozzarella caprese I have ever eaten for an appetizer. One of their soups of the day was GF, tomato bisque. I had the chicken Marsala for an entree. Overall great experience, would come back if I lived here.
