Gluten free items are not clearly marked on the menu, although it does mention the gluten free pizza crust being cooked in individual pans. Our server seemed knowledgeable about gluten issues in general but was not thorough in explaining the options, and seemed somewhat uncertain about which items were safe other than there broadly being GF pizza and pasta available.

There was a minor thing that suggested to me they're not especially conscious of cross-contamination. When bringing out my pizza, the server carrying it was also carrying two gluten-containing dishes with loose pasta and breadcrumbs, and had anything been jostled off those full-to-the-edge dishes it would have immediately fallen on my pizza below. This didn't happen that I could see, and I felt fine after eating, but it's the kind of detail in food handling that suggests to me they're not taking cross-contamination risks overly seriously. (Also they're doing gluten pizzas in the same place so the individual pans are only protecting you so much.)

Anyway, the worst thing was that the pizza was terrible. I'd genuinely rather have Oggi out of the freezer; the crust was basically the same.

The food was delicious. We started off with half a dozen oysters and ended up ordering half a dozen more. They do not have a separate gluten free menu, so I’m not sure why it’s advertised that they do. They were able to make the pizza gluten free for those of you who are not celiac. I was able to order the pasta and it was delicious. The portions will be smaller than what you might be used to for a typical “American” portion size but I found it just right. I had some room leftover for gelato. They are a bit on the pricier side but I recommend regardless due to the great service and delicious food.

We were told in the way in that all pizzas and pasta could be made gluten free, however after asking a few more questions I learned about the modifications. Make sure to ask questions. We were pleased overall and no issues with the food at all.

Any pizza on the menu can be made GF, any pasta except lasagna can be made GF and they have two dessert options! My 12 year old Celiac son was pumped and said it was the best pizza he’s ever had

Had a gluten free pizza and the crust didn’t just taste like it was out of a box, really good. Waitress asked if the reason for GF was because of celiac, great service!
