I went to OSF with my family tonight for my son’s birthday (he really wanted to go)… I will say that two hostesses warned me that they are not a GF establishment and have a high risk for contamination. The server warned me as well. I tried the GF pasta with marinara sauce and chicken breast - and now I’m paying the price. I definitely do not recommend for people with celiac. They do have a gluten “friendly” menu, but it’s clearly for people with gluten sensitivity, not celiac.

limited gf menu, but good for dining with mixed non-gf company. GF noodles are the shorter curly ones. nothing can be special ordered (e.g. broccoli side). It is a pretty basic menu, but I have never gotten sick when I have stuck to it.

Celiac friendly?

Yes

Got sick after eating what was supposed to be gluten free Alfredo. Waiter wasn't able to say what went into the sauce and I shouldn't have taken his word for it.

Celiac friendly?

No

I WILL GIVE IT A BIG ZERO!!! We went for a family dinner with our two kids. We were asked to wait for 30-45 minutes and we ended up waiting for over an hour until we checked again. Finally, we entered the girl asked what do you need

As of we were there to clean the floors. After all the garbage we finally sat down after one and a half hour. My wife and I both wanted Chicken Marsala and we were told they are out of chicken. Even a mom and pop place do not run out of chicken on Friday night. I walked out and my wife decided to stay with the kids since they were hungry. We were trying to surprise our kids and before they go to school and they ruined our dinner and overall experience. Never going back to this place and this restaurant is cut off from our family list FOREVER!!!!

On 2 trips, the first I ordered gluten free noodles with mizithra and then ordered the same thing on my second trip, and when they gave me curly pasta instead of spaghetti, I asked for the spaghetti that I had the first time and they told me that they don't have nor have they ever had gluten free spaghetti, gluten free only comes in the curly noodles. Therefore the first pasta caused a reaction two days later, which I thought was from something else, but couldn't figure out what it was. Thus if your noodles aren't curly don't eat them!

Edit: 2023 I no longer go here. They switched from “gluten free” to “gluten friendly.” A food server told me that nothing is really gluten free any more. So apparently cross contamination is rampant. If cross contact to gluten doesn’t bother you, then this is a good place to eat.

I’ve always loved the taste of the food.

They have gluten free pasta and meat sauce. They also have gluten free salad dressing options and will happily give you salad without croutons. Their sausages are also gluten free. My husband and daughter both have celiac and have no issues after eating here. Servers are usually pretty knowledgeable about Celiac/gluten intolerance.

When you arrive there they give you a menu. Ok that menu you can look at see there’s a place that says gluten friendly menu with a bar code to scan. It takes you to a website with the gf items. They have more than I thought they would. The food was really good too. They did say some cross contamination but I didn’t get sick.

Gluten free (they call it “gluten friendly”) menu. Was straightforward, delicious and didn’t feel sick later!
