They have a “gluten friendly” menu only. If you have an gluten allergy the only thing you can eat is the salad with no croutons and idk about the dressing. I brought my own dressing. I asked the server do they cook the GF pasta in the same water as the other pasta and they do. Overall not a good experience.

One of my go to pasta places! Their salads and pesto dressing are amazing! I enjoy their GF pasta every time! Have eaten here numerous times with no issues at all. Knowledgable staff!

they don’t have a ‘gluten free’ menu, they have a ‘gluten friendly’ menu. the waiter told me that all the noodles are cooked in a shared pot and my best friend working there confirmed that they don’t make a well enough effort at making sure there is a true non-contaminated spot. if you’re on a gluten free diet without celiac you should be okay but it’s not a celiac safe place.

I eat here often and have never gotten sick. The manager confirmed that they cook the gluten free pasta in separate water.

We had dinner here last night and it was awesome. Entire section of the menu is all GF options and server was super knowledgeable and cautious. Definitely recommend!

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!!!!

The food was alright. Our server didn't know much about gluten free and when we asked about gluten free appetizers she offered us the bread. The menu says to speak to a manager, when we asked she assured us it was okay. Then after explaining how I need gluten free and have celiac she brought my salad out with croutons, she fixed it but made me uneasy about the rest of the meal. The manager wasn't very helpful either. Wouldn't recommend.
