The waiter was totally unaware of gluten-free protocol. When we asked the manager, she was aware and well informed. However when the waiter brought food out, he continued to be unaware and put gluten-free food down on top of bread, for example, despite repeated reminders. I brought it to his attention, and he was sort of dismissive. ...It may have been just a bad waiter, but they clearly aren’t doing thorough training here.

I am gluten sensitive and I didn't have any issues. I love their GF pasta with mizithra cheese. Their salads are also very good! I absolutely love the old spaghetti factory!

the food is sub par in taste and worse still in that I didn't enjoy the meal and got sick afterwards to boot. if you are truly gluten sensitive save your money and go somewhere else. you shouldn't waste your money when you could probably cook something better in a camp kitchen.

My gluten-free pasta with the mushroom marinara sauce was delicious. Cooked to perfection. The salad came with a tasty basalmic vinaigrette. The service was very good and quick, even on a busy Saturday night. They even surprised us with a birthday song for one of our party. We'll be back!

Many GF options, printed right on regular menu. Server was very aware and attentive to GF needs, which is refreshing.

Had lunch of GF pasta with marinara and a sausage,which was very good. They use Heartland pasta, first time I've tried it and I thought it had good texture and was quite tasty. My GF meal came out with a little GF flag on it, which I thought was very funny, but it is effective since the GF pasta looks very similar to regular.

The prices are very inexpensive and even include coffee or tea, and spumoni ice cream which is GF also--yum! I will definitely return. A hassle-free, nice GF lunch.

They are not celiac friendly at all. The waitress told me whwn i ordered that it is celiac friendly and her friend is celiac so she knows. But after eating and feeling the pain 10 minutes later i asked her about how it was cooked and she said they use the same water as the regular noodles to cook their GF pasta. Big no no

I asked the waiter to see a gluten free menu and they brought me one that said gluten friendly and has a disclaimer that there may be cross contamination. I ordered Alfredo pasta which came with a salad. I didn’t get sick. The waiter was aware when I asked about salad dressings and was nice about my requests. They brought out my dish with a toothpick specifying it was a gluten free meal. I won’t frequent, but I would consider it an option next time I am in slc

I am also dairy free and have been doing keto. I ordered chicken breast and steamed broccoli. The waitress came back and said they boil the broccoli in the regular pasta water, so it would not be gf. This made me wonder if they cook the gf pasta in the same water. The only thing I could have was chicken breast and I got cross contaminated with it.

They were very nice, but don’t think I will visit again.
