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!

Definitely not gluten free. The food comes out tagged “gluten friendly”, but it definitely contains gluten or has cross contamination.

I ordered the gluten free Alfredo and salad. I was okay after eating the salad, but once I got partially through the pasta, I felt like I wanted to throw up. I did share with the server I had Celiac Disease and she confirmed that they could accommodate and it was made separately. It tasted like they used the pasta water for the Alfredo sauce. I do not recommend this to anyone even if you call and ask which I did.

Don’t trust the GF claims. Either they don’t monitor cross contamination or just flat messed up our order.
