This was my first time actually eating in a restaurant since being diagnosed 8 months ago. I was very scared. I asked for the gluten free menu and right away when the waitress got to the table asked if I was gluten free when I notified them I had celiacs. She proceeded to ask if it would be okay if she brought me a gluten free bread roll. My food was FANTASTIC. It was also my anniversary so they brought out a gluten free dessert for us and it was so good. I got home and cried from happiness to feel somewhat normal. I had 0 reaction and felt completely safe.

First time there and definitely will be back. Confirmed that they have a dedicated fryer and prep area for gluten free. Also knowledgeable about gf as well as other food allergies. Best part: tastes great and I didn’t get sick!

Spoke with manager who said they have dedicated fryers, dedicated prep area, dedicated fridge. Their pizza crust is pre made so that it is not contaminated.

Pizza, pasta, sandwiches, desserts, GF bread, and more! Really complete menu.

Amazing! Dedicated kitchen and staff makes sure they clean and minimize the risk of cross contamination. Their menu is huge and the kids menu gives young gluten free kids an opportunity to eat like other kids. Also they have many appetizers and a gluten free bread basket. This restaurant includes everyone and makes sure everyone celiac or not feels safe.

Went here after reading the great reviews. Staff is very friendly and extremely helpful and accommodating. I am GF as well as corn-free, with the latter actually being the more difficult sensitivity when eating out. Our server Karen was awesome, being careful to check with the kitchen regarding any GF menu item that I was interested in. Unfortunately the GF pastas, breads and pizza crusts all contained corn, but Karen helped me come up with a cocktail as well as a custom GF/CF entree combination that worked and was delicious (although the breaded chicken strips were barely seasoned and lacking in flavor.) My husband had the regular pizza and thoroughly enjoyed it. I would not hesitate to recommend Traverso's to someone who has to eat gluten-free; the selection is great, and the staff's attention to detail certainly increases the odds of a good dining experience.

My daughter has multiple food allergies. The waitress and chef were wonderful. They produced a food list with asterisked items that could be substituted in addition to the gluten free menu! The chef seems like an expert on allergens in food ingredients. All of our food was delish. My husband, daughter and I were very pleased.

Very impressed. The GF bruschetta was SO good. I asked where they get their bread, the waitress said the bakery on sells to restaurants. ☹ Will definitely be coming back to try more food off the GF menu.

I ate here after wanting to try a new place and reading about all the gf options people talked about in their comments. Everyone is right- the gf menu is in unbelievable and the food is fantastic. Usually there aren't many options so it's not hard to make a choice, but TrAverso's has a little bit of everything! I had the gf chicken carbonara. It tastes like the real deal and I even got some gf bread to go with it! I went on a Saturday night and I did have to wait quite a while for my food, but they stagger the salad and bread so it's not like you're just waiting with an empty stomach. Highly recommend and will definitely be going back to try more of what they have to offer.

They have FRIED CHICKEN! This is a great place with a huge GF menu and everything is great too. On a busy night my food took longer that expected (which I didn't care about because that usually means they're being cautious in the kitchen) and they gave my wife and I both free dessert! They have a gluten free version of a signature dessert there and it was great. Awesome experience at this place!

I had the most Amazing dinner last night! Ever since I have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease it's been a challenge to go out to dinner and not worry about cross contamination and getting extremely sick and not to mention finding something worthy to eat. Traverso's Restaurant did an amazing job. I felt totally fine after dinner. The GlutenFree Menu was rather large. There were so many options. I felt like I was looking at a regular menu from most restaurants compared to places that give you very limited options. I was so impressed 😊. And to top it all off it was Good. ThankYou Traverso's you have given me a gift that I will never forget. The gift of feeling normal for once!

Tonight's dinner was indicative of all our experiences with Traversos, excellent food with excellent service. We have been regulars of their delivery service for years, always quality pizza, soups, pasta. The house cheeseburger is top notch! However, we were delighted to find they had an unbelievably extensive gluten free menu, including bread, buns, pasta, and pizza. To top it off, we have had great luck with friendly delivery drivers and in house servers. Truly a family favorite.

Having gf bruschetta as an appetizer was such a treat! Amazing gf selection and I did not have any issues with cross-contamination.

Drove two hours to go to this restaurant based off reviews. Did not disappoint. GF menu is extensive. Agree with all GF fried chicken is awesome- and comes with GF bread that actually is decent! Family enjoyed their regular people meals much as well - fettuccine and lasagna. They have several tempting GF dessert options - more extensive than any I'd seen before. Absolutely recommend.
