A separate pot is used for the GF pasta! The food was amazing and the staff understood cross contamination and answered all of our questions. We’ll be back!

The woman taking our order was great! She's gluten intolerant and so she was very knowledgeable about gf. They have gluten free pasta cooked in its own dedicated boiling water pot so it can take a little extra time but it's worth it. The tomato basil meat sauce was bright and delicious. They can alter most menu items to make them gf. We were so impressed here.

Food was good. Service was nice. Did not get sick. Will go back. Had a separate area to prepare, and they only have one shape of gluten free pasta, so no mix ups.

They also worked with my dairy allergy.

Excellent service. Our server was very attentive and consulted with the chef several times about sauces and such. They had a great understanding about GF needs. There was GF rotini and ravioli (chicken or cheese) in addition to many naturally GF dishes.

Chef personally came out to explain how everything is cooked and how she can modify the food to make it safe for celiacs. Very educated about Celiac disease, cross contamination, etc. Delicious and did not get sick!
