The owners sibling has celiac so they do an amazing job at cross contamination, finding gf options that actually taste good and I also feel safe ordering delivery because the label everything clearly. I feel lucky we have them here!

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. This is some of the best pasta and pizza I’ve ever had. I met the owner, and he assured me that everything is safe and even gave me a free gf dessert when I told him I had celiac. We will definitely be back!!!

This place is amazing! One of the owners has celiac so they have protocols in place for separate gluten free cooking. I got the linguine and clams which came with cheesy garlic bread. I literally had to ask if it was gluten free because it was so good I was worried it wasn’t GF. Also tried the meatball sub and the sub bread was delicious and the meatballs were amazing! 100% would go back for amazing Italian GF good.

Not only the best GF, but some of the best Italian food I have ever had. Incredibly safe- one of the owners has Celiac as well. He even called me to confirm some details on my order and was beyond nice. Can’t recommend enough!

A gluten free Italian paradise 😍!! I’m from out of town and came across this restaurant and it was the best Italian food I have had in years!!! I would be willing to go back to LA just so I can eat here again. We met the owner who also has celiac and he was so nice and gave us the most delicious GF chocolate cake! 100000/10

I had the clam chowder, roasted veggie ravioli in vodka sauce with garlic bread and took some cannolis to go. The chowder was absolutely delicious! The ravioli were great, fresh and cooked to perfection but I wish they were lobster like the regular option they were offering. The garlic bread was awesome and so were the cannolis they had a crisp shell and the ricotta filling wasn’t too sweet! I would love to see some variety with dried cherries, apricot or pistachio. Can’t wait to visit again!

I love this place!!! Best place to eat if you have Celiac’s disease. Food is pretty great and everything can be made GF!! One of the owners have celiac disease and the variety of food like no other place. The only reason to not eat here is because you don’t want Italian.

My daughter is gluten and lactose intolerant. I called ahead before ordering online because my kiddo (14 yo) wanted spaghetti with meatballs — wanted to know if the meatballs had GF breadcrumbs (if any) and/or cheese in them. Turned out they had a choice of turkey and beef meatballs. Both have GF breadcrumbs added; the turkey has a little parmesan cheese (which my kiddo can tolerate and likes) but the beef only has the GF breadcrumbs. Toasted garlic bread comes with this entree as well. I had to check if it was GF (yes, some places give you regular bread with a GF meal). Yes, the bread was GF, but they use a special cheese/butter spread to make the garlic bread. Bummer. However, they were very happy to accommodate my daughter and make her garlic bread with a mixture of olive oil and garlic, instead. How outstanding is that?! The lady I spoke with at the restaurant was SO helpful! She even asked my name so that when I placed my order online, she’d be on the lookout so she’d know who needed the “special bread” (the rest of it can be tailored online). The food was excellent on top of everything! We took it To Go so I can’t say anything about their restaurant (although it looked nice from what I saw). But the food and service were exemplary! :)

As someone with celiac I am ALWAYS anxious about trying places that aren't strictly GF. With that said I got the GZ pizza and had zero adverse reaction and I'm pretty sensitive to cross contamination. The waiter was very helpful and whenever he was unsure about something he went to check in the kitchen. Don't know if there is a dedicated area for preparing GF food but one of the owners does have celiac so it seems like things are taken very seriously (I gave 4 stars for safety just because I don't know precisely how the food is prepared but again as I said no issues after eating). Also the food was fantastic and they have a wonderful promotion where they give free gelato to any new customers! Will for sure be going again!

This might be the best gluten free restaurant I’ve ever been to. Almost everything on their menu is marked gluten free or can be made gluten free. They were super nice and made sure there was no contamination. 10/10 and looking forward to going back. They also gave us free gluten free cookies.

Though this is not a dedicated gluten free facility, almost the entire menu can be prepared gluten free. The owner is celiac so he understands and is careful with preparation. My daughter is celiac and loved the chicken Alfredo pasta. She had it twice in a week while we were in town visiting. She didn’t have any issues. Great find!

I have been diagnosed with celiac for 12 years. First time TBros popped on my radar. We ate on patio, heaters everywhere. menu had so many GF options. Asked about cross contamination…one of the owners has celiac, they know our issues… I had chicken Parm, haven’t had that in forever. And COVID protocols are followed. Bottled water upon seating and sealed dinnerware. We felt very safe. Will definitely be back. Wish i knew about this earlier. 👍🏼

Every time I've been, the owner/ staff have been not only very personable, but over-accommodating to their guests with celiacs. Provided me with gluten free garlic toast and appetizers, the gluten free options are extensive and delicious. Can't recommend a place more, love it.
