Most of the time this location is great with allergies. They have a good selection for meals and the staff is friendly. There’s always a manager who checks in and makes sure everything is ok. DO NOT get the steak tips! Like the other review I got glutened from eating the steak tip dinner. Must be in the marinade. First and only time getting sick here.

A manager came over to tell us exactly how they were going to prepare the pizza safely.

Also the whole atmosphere is so homey. It reminds me of how all restaurants used to be in the 90s.

Yikes! About six months ago got to bottom of chicken Parmesan and saw several long spaghetti strands! Went today and they served my "gf" buffalo chicken sandwich on a regular bun. On both occasions I stressed celiac I asked upon ordering reiterating upon being delivered and in the case of the bun even before I bit into it...only to find out in both cases neither were actually gluten-free! People make mistakes but this place seems to have fundamental and persistant ignorance about celiac and apparently process.

My daughter and I, both Celiac, were in Andover for a dance competition and saw a good review so we decided to try it. The first night we were pleasantly surprised. Manager came out and assured us they were on it. The second night we decided to go back but it was much busier. My daughter ordered the GF kids pizza. When I questioned it, because it didn't look like any GF pizza I've ever had, the server said yes and assured me it was. My daughter is now vomiting. I will not be going back!

Gf chicken broccoli ziti. It can be great. The issue is really with consistency. I've never gotten sick, but I've also never had this meal served the same way any time I've ever ordered it. The kitchen staff appear to be vigilant in avoiding cross contamination.

I felt safe after talking to the manager, but the food wasn't worth the experience. The waitress didn't know much about the food - couldn't tell me what was in the various salads. The broccoli was tasteless mush. I asked for a medium rare burger, and got it on the third try. The first two were well done. The roll was Udi's, wrapped separately, but barely toasted, so it tasted bad. I won't be going here again.

They were really accommodating with my gluten allergy. I had chicken, veggies, and pasta with marinara sauce. Everything tastes very fresh, the chicken was perfectly marinated and grilled. One of the better Italian places I've been to for gluten free food

9/1/13 I've upped my rating. We've had take out a few more times without issue.

12/26/12 I've had takeout 2x. They have a GF Sauteed chicken penne & broccoli that my 4yr old daughter likes. The pasta is Heartland - the best GF pasta we've found so far. The low rating is because they mixed up my GF veggies with my wife's non-GF rice. It was busy when we ordered.

They have gluten free and yeast free pizza crust that is really really good and one of the only pizza that can say this.

I am not sure what their protocols are but they barely care about their customers as it is, never mind those with allergies.

The pasta and sauce is bland and watery. You might as well make it at home, because there is literally no flavor.

Their options are weak, and they are not at all knowledgeable. Go somewhere else.

I came here the very first night I was going fully gluten free after learning of my diagnosis, so I was a bit nervous. They immediately put me at ease with their clear knowledge and number of gluten free options. I got the chicken parm, which also came with gluten free pasta and was delicious. They also, without my asking, offered me a gluten free roll since they typically provide free bread to guests (which I appreciated since I used to take full advantage of free bread). The manager also came out to explain their methods and clarify that the chicken parm would still be gluten free even though it would “look like there’s real breadcrumbs on it.” Very accommodating and made me free very safe!

Edit: I’ve since gotten delivery multiple times and not only haven’t gotten sick but can also confirm the meal is always clearly marked with an allergy sticker. I’ve still only eaten the chicken parm but it’s just so good I can’t resist getting it every time!

The manager took my daughters order and delivered each item himself.

This is a family style italian restaurant, nothing fancy.

We attended a sports banquet here and the staff was very helpful to the event organizer in offering up GF kid friendly options.

This was a favorite place to eat before I was diagnosed with Celiac, and it continues to be a favorite. They recently introduced a new menu with all the options for gluten free marked with a symbol. Shortly after ordering, the manager came over to chat about our food. They reportedly have a separate prep area for gluten free meals, and it was served separately. The Sausage Abruzzi with GF penne was amazing! I can't wait to try their GF Chicken Parmesan (with GF breading) next time.
