The staff was extremely knowledgeable about everything on their gluten friendly menu. Pasta, salad and dessert were delicious. There was even a balloon artist coming around to the tables. The only negative is the parking cost.

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.

I love this place. I'm a celiac and have never gotten the slightest bit sick from here. The manager came out and spoke with me and assured me that they take gluten seriously.

I had the GF pasta with mushrooms & marinara as well as the Italian sausage off the gluten free menu. My meal even came out with a GF flag on it. All was good! I made sure to mention that I have problems with cross contamination....

Although this restaurant was not GIG trained, they did consult with GIG to create their GF menu.

This place made me actually vomit an hour after eating. I have Celiac Disease and I informed the waiter of my dietary restrictions. We ate off of the gluten free menu and the waiter said they were knowledgeable in how to handle this and reassured me that everything would be taken care of. It wasn't. I am not sure what they did or didn't do, but DO NOT EVER EAT THERE!!!!! Not gluten free.

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.
