The pasta was corkscrew with the sauce and was very good. The waiter was good knowing that I needed the salad without croutons.

They have a gluten friendly menu, not gluten free. My server informed me. They cook the pasta and broccoli in the same water as the regular pasta. not good for someone with an allergy or celiac. I was wondering why I was getting sick and couldn't figure it out.

I love eating here. Unlike the Olive Garden closer to me, these guys get it, and the food is worth it. They cook their noodles well and you have access to their great sauces.

baked chicken and broccoli, salad and spumoni! I liked the corkscrew GF pasta with marinara and mizithra sauces with the baked chicken too!

They were great about our GF pasta! They even have a little flag they stick in the GF dishes to tell them apart. On our visit with a very large group it was no big deal to be GF. It felt so nice to be" just like everyone else." as we left I saw several GF flags on tables across the restaurant, so I guess they not only take GF pasta seriously, they do it right.

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.
