    I’m basing my “celiac friendly” status on previous posts as well as the fact that the general manager has celiac. The food was amazing and the gluten-free menu was a whole menu front AND back!! It was so good I ordered a second meal to take home with me.

    We were passing through Chattanooga and found this little gem of a restaurant. It was amazing to say the least! Most restaurants offer bread with a meal but never offer GF bread! This one did, and it was the best GF flatbread we've ever had! We asked our server if we could purchase one to take with us and we were so pleased that we were able to. My husband had the GF chicken tetrazzini and enjoyed every bite of it.

    This is my favorite gluten free place in Chattanooga! They have a separate menu for gluten free including starters, dinners and deserts. Generous portions and helpful staff. For the rest of your dining party, I have heard nothing but complements about the food, (except my grumpy dad who is never pleased with anything).

    I wish I lived closer to this restaurant because I would eat there every day! The menu was huge for gluten safe, the food is fresh and amazing. Get the chicken tetrazzini and another one to go! It was so nice to have bread with everyone else and the oil and cheese was delightful. Go!

    Wonderful!!! I was so happy. GF flatbread and pasta. It was fabulous and no reaction at all. They automatically gave us a gluten free menu. There are a lot more items that you can eat then you can't eat!

    I just had the best alfredo I've ever had in my life, and that includes before my Celiac diagnosis! A very impressive gf menu & knowledgeable staff who "specialize" in providing safe gf options. Delicious flatbread appetizer, and I ordered from the extensive make your own pasta section, getting penne pasta in alfredo with grilled shrimp and mushrooms. I thought I was going to die it was so amazing! All this and a beautiful view of the river in the Bluff View Arts District - can't recommend highly enough!

    Soooooo good! Dedicated gluten free menu with tons of options and even desserts! The grilled eggplant was the best I've ever had and my husband (who is not celiac) agreed that it was the best Italian food he's had in years. I suggest arriving early though because this restaurant was packed tight and the wait was really long.... And for good reason!

    Alot of options. My pasta had chicken, mushrooms, red pepper sauce and cheese. It was very good and i didnt get sick from cross contamination either. The gluen free bread tasted good as well. I recommend calling ahead and making reservations. The wait would have been two hours had we not chosen to sit outside.

    Extensive gluten free menu, including make your own pizza, create your own pasta bowl, salads and specialties. Very fresh ingredients and the meals we had were delicious. They understand Celiac requirements as one of the managers has the disease. Highly Recommend this restaurant for those Celiac's looking for great Italian!

    So good! I went for my second time today and it was just as good, even better actually! They have an entire gf menu and do not bat an eye when I request it. They have gf flatbread that's really yummy and brought it out separately and with my own oil they serve for "dipping" I build my own pasta and it was delicious. I had the pesto cream sauce with mushrooms and bacon all baked with mozzarella on top. It is surely becoming a staple for us when we come to town!

    We visited on our recent trip to Chattanooga and heard they had gluten free pasta so we decided to try it. It was bland and pretty tasteless. The pasta was not very good. I got very ill after our visit which leads me to believe they should not state they are gluten free. Also, later found out they use store bought gluten free pasta which they cook in the same water as their regular pasta. That would explain why I got sick. Would NOT recommend anyone with celiac disease or gluten intolerance eat here.

    This restaurant is amazing!!! Great gluten free menu! They offer gluten free pastas with a variety of sauces to choose from (all the ones I've had have been delicious...I especially like the pastas with baked mozzarella on top), a gluten free flat bread (tastes great), and gluten free pizza. I love this restaurant, it is my favorite!

    I was so excited to eat here because they offer a gluten-free bruschetta which I could enjoy while my Mom was eating her bread. I ordered from their "gluten-free menu. I had the create your own pasta dish with their gluten-free fusilli, chicken, and roasted red pepper Alfredo sauce. So delicious!!!!

    Before discovering our need to go gf, my wife and I had eaten at Tony's a couple times. Both times, we left stuffed. This time, my wife ordered gf spaghetti. The portion size was too small. When we left, she was still hungry and we had to go elsewhere for more food.

    Tony's has a pretty extensive and impressive GF menu. I had the GF build your own pizza which was delicious. The crust was cooked perfectly and the toppings were fresh. The staff were friendly and patient & helpful with all my questions. Peaceful and scenic location as well. The only downside is if you go with others that are not GF. Tony's serves this amazing bread selection and olive oil dip with all meals. It's almost uncomfortable how much will power it takes to not eat any :/ On the other hand, they do have a GF flatbread for $2. I didn't order this so I can't judge.

    Best gluten-free restaurant in Chattanooga I've found so far. The staff was very kind and knowledgeable. The food was delicious, except my gf bruschetta was very hard. It is a little on the pricey side though.

    wow! Loved our GF experience at Tony's Pasta Shop a few weeks ago when we drove through Chattanooga after spending the weekend in the Smoky Mountains. They reassured me that they have a system in the kitchen to avoid cross contamination and the waiter was knowledgeable when I asked questions about their gluten free options. The GF flatbread was a treat. The GF chicken tetrazinni was so creamy & tender. My GF dining companion had the GF Lower Country pasta with cajun seasonings. He said it was not too spicy and was full of flavor. Definitely worth getting off the interstate for before heading to Ruby Falls.

    Excellent GF menu for my daughter. There were so many choices and for 2$ extra you can get GF flat bread. They are very aware of cross contamination and are very celiac friendly. Everything we ate GF and not GF was EXCELLENT!! Will definitely go back there again.

    Prepare to wait, but worth it! GF flat bread is worth the $2, but they don't tell you that it cost extra. I got the GF low country pasta. It was good, but had a lot of liquid in it. Save some of the bread for the pasta. The waitress made it longer with poor service. Giving it 4 stars because of the bread. It took us an hour to get a table and an hour and a half to eat. Most of that was waiting. We really are fast when we finally got our food.

    separate gluten free menu was nice. They brought out bread and I asked if they had Gfree bread. .. She said yes...it was flatbread. ... like pizza bread. .. but the price was $2 extra unlike the huge fluffy slices of the free regular bread. odd I thought... we ordered Gfree pasta dishes ... also an up charge for that. .. and were satisfied with the taste. It was a nice location and atmosphere. ..

    Omg! The best chicken parmesan I've ever had (GF or not)! I cleaned my plate. Great staff, delicious food, and tons of GF options. The GF chocolate cake for dessert was heavenly!

    I have eaten here at least 20 times. LOVE it!! I have never gotten sick. Their flatbread is delicious. I do wish it came to the table automatically like the wheat bread and you didn't have to pay for it though.

    First I would like to thank the restaurant for attempting a gluten free menu. Unfortunately much work is needed to bring flavor to the plate. I ordered the grilled chicken parmesan and it was two very thin cutlets stacked together with tomato sauce and cheese. I never realized that bread crumbs & frying added so much flavor, these wafer thin cutlets had no taste at all, my pasta wasn't drained properly & I had a puddle of diluted sauce around my plate. The $2 extra flatbread was pretty good. No complaints about the service as the waitress was good. I have eaten at other Italian gluten free restaurants and I know it can be good.I hope this serves as notice that the bar needs to be raised.

    Very disappointed overall. We were there 90 minutes just to try to eat lunch. The server came to our table 3 times total. My daughter and I both are celiac. The food was mediocre at best and service was pathetic with a mandatory 18% gratuity added to every check! I ordered gf pizza and it was served to me burned , of course I sent it back to kitchen. After talking to mgr, he informed me that we had his best server taking care of us!!! Uhmmmm we eat at a lot of gf resturants nationally and this was by far overall the worst!
