Waitress said she didn’t think bread contained wheat. I asked her to verify GF items available and she came back and said meat and eggs. I should have known better. Got sick before I left on bacon, eggs, and grits.

After explaining that we had allergies at the table and ordering our food very carefully, a hostess brought over regular pizza dough for my daughter to make an art project...it was awkward and the hostess would not let up on the "art". Our food came (after our waitress told us GF would cost more). Twelve noodles (regular GF noodles- that I can purchase at similarly Aldi's)and three shrimp- for seriously inflated prices. Honestly I will pay whatever it takes to keep us safe, but compared to the "cheaper" non-GF that actually contained food, we were shocked. This would have been a paltry kid's plate. Needless we were left hungry with a $78 bill.

The restaurant DOES use separate water for the gf pasta. They are in the process of finding a gf pizza crust. Talked to the manager, Jennifer and she is very interested in supporting gf clientele.

If you have Celiacs, be aware that the GF pasta is cooked in shared water. Avoid it! Otherwise there are a number of gluten free items that will be a pleasure! Ask for Victoria. She understands and will guide you.

Sorrentos is a great little Italian restaurant that has been open for 5 months. They have gluten free pasta and are all very knowledgeable about gluten allergies. Especially the Server Victoria. She has a child with celiac disease and understands cross contamination. They can make a lot of their entrees gluten free. The owner Jennifer was amazing, she is very friendly and outgoing. Jennifer said she is currently working on establishing a gluten free menu. I ordered chicken franseca and it was great. Didn't feel sick either.
