    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!

    I always get the gluten free pasta with browned butter and Mizithra cheese (if you cant do dairy there are other options) with an added GF sauted (seasoned) chicken breast. Sooo good. Haven't gotten ill and I've eaten here several times. They have a gluten free menu and wait-staff are well- informed.

    It's a corn and rice based spiral pasta which costs $.99 more and can be had with 4 or 5 different sauce choices. Our pasta came out with a little flag in the middle indicating the GF pasta. We had the browned butter and mizithra cheese sauce, and were quite pleased.

    I work here. I got a breaded chicken breast with sauce to eat(breaded with rice flour only) and I got horribly sick. They do cook their GF noodles in a safe manner, but sauce comes from the same bins they use for their non gf noodles. Possible cross contamination there. Be careful.

    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.

    The dessert is ice cream, the GF menu is not extensive. There is gluten free pasta you can substitute. Flavor was ok. This was not a bad experience but NOT great! Do not think your going to get a great option. Side note I got the breast of chicken Alfredo but I had 7 small cubes of chicken.

    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.

    They have their own gluten free menu and options include gluten free noodles as well as other items. I don't know how strict they are in terms of how close together everything is cooked but they seem to be conscious of people's sensitivities just let your waiter know.

    They have a "gluten friendly" menu where certain dishes can be made with gf pasta or modified to not contain gluten ingredients. Got sick after eating the gf cheese and brown butter pasta with a side salad without croutons. They do disclaim that they cannot avoid cross contamination.

    The pasta here is wonderful, and the portions are huge. I have celiac disease and I enjoy eating here. The only thing is that the cheese sauce pasta I get always makes me very full very quickly...I can never tell if it's bloating because of contamination or if it is just filling. Would still recommend for celiacs.

    I have had the gluten free pasta at this particular Spaghetti factory. I ordered it with the alfredo sauce which they say is a gluten free option. All they do is throw extra cheese onto the pasta with no alfredo sauce. This is the only Spaghetti factory I have gone to that does this. Highly disappointing..the gluten free with alfredo sauce is kind of expensive to only have cheese and no sauce. I will never eat at this particular Spaghetti factory again!

    I was really excited to eat here, but I got so sick from cross contamination. I ordered the chicken Alfredo off of the gluten free menu. It was so delicious & I about died over their Alfredo sauce. Maybe I just went on a bad day, but it was around 3 on a Wednesday when there was no crowd.

    Celiac friendly but meals for children not adults. Was supposed to get "baked" mac and cheese for adults and it was not baked, was just noodles and cheese just like from a box. I could've done that at home instead of spending $80 for dinner :-/

    Both myself and my 9 year old daughter are gluten intolerant and we found the staff knowledgeable. We did not get sick. The food was pleasant, not incredible, but pleasant. I had noodles, sauce and italian sausage. She had alfredo with chicken in it. We also had the ice cream for dessert. Overall, a nice experience and we would eat there again.

    The menu is gluten friendly not gluten free. You can order gluten free items but the restaurant makes it clear that it is not a gluten free facility and cross contamination and/or errors are possible. I wish I had know this before I arrived.

    Although they have a GF menu, the meal seems incomplete without a nice crusty bread (there are many great options they could stock, especially from Mariposa Bakery). The same problem with the pasta, only corkscrew pasta, no matter the dish, which makes the clam's linguine somehow not work. Again there are multiple GF pastas available on the market that they could stock. The atmosphere is festive and the service very good, if they update to a fuller GF menu they are all set. For now, too limited and GF seems like an afterthought.

    I was really disappointed by the service, the gal who seated us said I had to go to the front desk to get a gluten free menu, it is already on the menu... Then, it specifically says that cross contamination may occur. Fortunately I don't have celiac's so I just gambled that I would feel ok. So far so good. Service was terrible and I would not recommend if you have celiac's!

    I'm always afraid to have gf pasta in a restaurant because of cross-contamination possibilities, but we ate here last week anyway, and it was delicious! The menu is clearly marked and my server and the hostess were both very knowledgeable about what was gf. My server even verified the cooking process to ease my mind. I was on vacation and did not want to get sick. It was simple, but yummy food. Best of all, no sickness later. And they give you ice cream for dessert. GF of course!
