Ate there one dinner. Took quite a while for the wait staff to determine what was GF. They recommended a yellowfin tuna for the GF party, and other dishes were blackened drum and red snapper. After a long wait, meal arrived. Tuna, OK, redfish great, drum, fair. Appeared to be GF, though, and no reaction. Mediocre service, fair food.

No gluten free menu, but they were able to point out the gluten free items on the salad bar (the gluten items are in a separate section than the veggies and dressings) and the kitchen made one of their fish specials gluten free for me (I got the veggies instead of rice for some reason, but it looked like it was a wild rice mix that may have contained barley or be cooked with gluten containing stock). They do have a flourless chocolate cake that even the gluten eaters at the table loved. I didn't get sick so I will call it a win. I am NCGS though, so I probably wouldn't have taken the chance otherwise.

You have three options here to eat: grilled fish, grilled shrimp, and grilled chicken. That's it. There is a soup and salad bar but the soup is thickened so it isn't gluten free. You can make a salad with ranch dressing and the croutons and bread are separated. I had the gigantic grilled shrimp or something like that. It was good but for $25.99 I was expecting more shrimp. The rice was good. The vegetables were okay.

Noodles are not good. Yes it’s gluten free but this is not actual pasta it’s rice mush with sub par sauce.

Never ever been sick and I’ve been here so many times. I love how they signify it’s gluten free so when it comes to the table I don’t have to ask. They also know NOT to put bread on your bowl!

Decided to give them another shot after our horrible experience a few months ago. Nothing has changed. They refuse to make you a salad in the back. Crazy since they charge you for a salad. It’s hard because other people cross contaminate it with pasta salad and other things... this used to be one of my favorite places until they started refusing to make my salad in the back.

Gluten-free pasta! Unlimited! All salad dressings are gluten-free. I’d definitely go back!

Spaghetti Works has a great gluten-free menu for pasta options. I frequently dine. They serve all pastas with rice noodles and have a couple different sauces and additions to choose from. I add sausage to my pasta. The portions are not large. If your waiter/waitress doesn't inform you, make sure to ask for all you can eat pasta. It is included. I ate from the salad bar and was just fine - obviously use your best judgement on things like croutons, cheese, and bacon bits. All salad dressings are GF. I have Celiac Disease and had no problems eating at Spaghetti Works. Definitely good option for gluten free!

Our go to for a celiac safe dinner. Rice pasta is always a safe option. But they just added a new option of 4 cheese ravioli...best gluten free ravioli ever. Staff are all very well trained in allergies. If you are sensitive I would avoid the salad bar but my daughter is very sensitive and always eats salad bar safely here.

Normally have a decent dinning experience. I have eaten here multiple times and once I was glutened... but I also ate from the salad bar so I'm pretty sure it was my fault. Will go there again.

only options are the salad bar...which could have cross contamination....or angel hair pasta with sauce...no meats...no breads and the pasta looks like sprouts. I ate there 3 hours ago and I feel sick.

The salad bar was just ok but the pasta was really good and unlimited as stated in other reviews. I would definitely go back.

This restaurant gives you great value for the price. My GF spaghetti was bottomless, and the meals (even kids) included salad bar.

Great spaghetti. Meal was very good, did not have any problems and waitress seemed educated. Not super fond of the salad bar concept because of cross-contact, but felt very confident of my pasta.

As someone who used to work here I am extremely disappointed. Back then I can say with 100% certainty they followed extremely strict protocols to avoid cross-contamination but I have eaten there 3 times recently and each time have been sick. I'm not sure what exactly is going on back there but following a major shift in management someone has dropped the ball big time. I will certainly be calling GREAT Kitchens and alerting them to the fact they need to be checking up on this kitchen.

The GF menu has shrunk since a year ago when I was there, a couple options only. The only salad offered (included with the meal) is at the salad bar, so CC is highly likely. Even without eating from the salad bar, was still glutened. It seems this section of the menu has lost priority.

I went here tonight and had watery gluten free pasta with a lump of sauce on it. Even my friend who was with me said it looked very unappetizing. They used to have gf chicken strips and pizza and now only have pasta with sauce and very little protein. I would rather a restaurant have no gluten free menu (so I would just know to skip it) than a gluten free menu with bad food. It makes me sad to write a bad review but the meal was so rough I couldn't even finish it.

Had a great experience here for my sons birthday. Good pasta dishes and sauces. This place seems to know their stuff about safely serving gluten free. Knowledgable staff. Each time my food came out someone separate brought it and clearly stated it was gf. The salad bar is a bit of a gamble. It would be nice to see them come up with another option, maybe a salad from the kitchen. I have Celiac and felt comfortable here and had no reaction. Great place.

Easy downtown location. Great food. Waitress knew to tell the kitchen we were GF so they could set up to avoid cross contamination. Also the price was good. We will return when in Des Moines.

Both greeter and server were aware of gluten free options. Food was fresh and delivered in a reasonable time.

There is a gf menu but there is either a lack of knowledge or some serious cross contamination going on. Both my daughter and I got very sick.

Great GF section on the menu with Pizza, pasta and chicken nuggets. I didn't try the pasta, but the pizza was good.

They have a GF menu with pizza, pasta, and chicken tenders. The pasta is angel hair made from rice and it is the greatest. You're able to get up to three different sauces on it and the GF ones are labeled. Portions are small but you get free pasta refills! The meal also comes with a salad bar. All their dressings are GF. They also make Italian sodas with 20+ different flavors. It has a very cute location in the downtown area next to the capital building, which is great for travelers who don't know the area. AND THEY ARE OPEN ON SUNDAYS, which I guess is rare in this area since nothing else was. I highly recommend!
