The restaurant is under new ownership. Had the chicken marsala, and as sick as I am, there is no way it was gluten free. The pasta that was served was gluten free and very undercooked. Do not recommend for celiacs.
The service was horrible. Brought me out a regular entree (not gluten free) and said “my bad” absolutely terrible experience overall. Had to walk out after waiting over 45 minutes and my correct entree still had not come out.
The menu is marked with GF items but the waitress literally knew nothing about GF. Even admitted it. Then when the menu was questioned, she said she didn’t know and didn’t even inquire. When my pasta came, it tasted GF so let’s hope it was!!
We had a super nice server and they were more than willing to double check with the kitchen on things for me. My food was so so. The salad was great but the alfredo sauce was very bland. My husband, who isn't gluten free, said his gluten filled meal was really good. So maybe I just got the wrong dish. They did say the only penne pasta they serve is gluten free so be aware of that as a double check. No ill effects afterwards, just not a fan of my meal.
They have gluten free options marked but we had to ask for everything that would be dairy free. The waiter wasn’t that knowledgeable but when asked him to ask the chef, he did so. They asked the chef and he seemed very knowledgeable and just replaced items to accommodate us. We are highly sensitive to gluten/dairy free with celiac. The gluten free pasta was delicious! And cooked perfectly.
Great gluten free menu options. Pine nut salmon was awesome! A must stop if traveling through this area. Waitress understood gluten free options. The only reason I did not rate a five is be cause they do not offer gluten free table bread.
Great place. Totally get celiac and very accommodating. Gluten and soy intolerant and they made it all work easily. More than 1/2 the menu is gf. Enjoy. It's pretty great food.
The hostess explained about 'GF' printed right next to the entrees printed on the menu. The waitress who took our orders, acknowledged my GF request, and even advised me that GF pasta would take a bit longer to cook. When the entree was carried in by a different staff, it looked wonderful. I ate half including pasta as it was delicious. Then I started feel bloated. I asked my daughter to taste my pasta and my mom's regular pasta. She said they both tasted same. I immediately called the waitress and she told me that the pasta was not GF. She apologized and agreed to deduct my dinner from the bill. By then, I already became so upset because I wasn't looking forward to be sick. I decided to talk w/the manager & told him it was no fun for me to miss work by dealing with gluten allergy symptoms. He kept apologizing and asked me if he could do anything. He asked me to email him if I get worse. He gave a full refund. It turned out the cooks or chefs were not reading the orders right.
My husband and I were traveling and chose this restaurant based on the excellent reviews. We often use the Find Me Gluten Free App when we travel. The service we received was incredible! I can say that there was a variety of gluten free options available. I had the chicken Marsala. I will say that this was the best gluten free meal I have had at any restaurant. We will definitely dine here in the future. The staff was very knowledgeable regarding gluten free options and also gave us suggestions. This restaurant is a must try!
This place used to be great for Celiac. But they have lost an understanding. This weekend my gluten free penne pasta had pieces of regular linguini and shells in it. The chef said they stopped using wheat pasta and only use egg pasta so I should be fine.
I've been here twice. They tend to cook the GF pasta Al dente and that's fine for the regular pasta, but not for the GF kind. If you order GF pasta, ask your server to make sure it's well done. otherwise they have the best GF menu selection anywhere.
I ate here twice and had a reaction both times. ( wasn't sure it was the restaurant the first time so treed again). They do have an extensive gf menu, but must cross contamination. My son also reacted.
Great GF options that are clearly labeled on the regular menu. No bread though and food was just okay. Kind of bland. Good to be able to get pasta with Alfredo sauce though! Probably wouldn't go back again.
Food was amazing! Even had my favorite GF desert (creme brûlée) and GF ginger beer. Seemed a little pricey ($15+) until the food came, so well worth it. Even my 2yr old ate my chicken and he eats nothing. The whole family left happy and best of all no reactions. This is on our permanent list of favs.
Amazing food and very knowledgeable staff. Our server was so friendly and helpful! Hard to find in a restaurant here in the midlands. Moving from CA to SC was so discouraging; but I know Travinia will get it right and I will be able to eat without worry of being sick later. Absolutely 5 stars!!
In general, my food has been ok here. I've eaten here several times and never had a reaction. Staff is always great. I usually get gf pasta with Alfredo sauce and ask for veggies to be added. Sometimes the veggies are cooked and other times not. Then I get up-charged for veggies and gf. My dish often costs more than a dish with meat in it. I don't understand that at all but us celiacs are used to it, aren't we?
So many glutenfree options! Some of the best food I've ever eaten out. Got the antipasto platter and the veal piccata (with gluten free pasta). I ate every last bite, and the people I was dining with all enjoyed their food very much too.
I haven't had Italian since learning I have a wheat intolerance & would've never thought to venture into an Italian restaurant for GF. Absolutely fantastic food. Many dishes available as GF. Nice ambiance. Professional, friendly & knowledgeable server. Highly recommend.
DELICIOUS! They have so many options and the waitress was very educated on gluten. I had to stop and make sure that my meal was gluten free because it didn't taste like it! I had a pasta dish and a crème brûlée. My new favorite restaurant for special occasions.
My daughter is strictly Gluten Free so for her birthday we had a party for her in the wine room. This was an amazing treat for her. A party that she did not have to cook and able to enjoy so many great new things is a true treat. Our party had a wonderful time, could not eat all the amazing food and loved the attentive service. The wine list was extensive and the courses just kept coming. We did buy gluten free cupcakes from Cupcakes and the restaurant displayed them beautifully. A memorial night.
We eat here about every two weeks. I usually get some sort of pasta mix. Sometimes the sauces aren't quite what I requested. But the pasta is really good and I've never had a problem. We always eat insides. I've never been sick even when it's busy, if you have a problem tell the manager, they are always there and concerned, to the point that since I have small hands I've started asking for different glasses to drink out of and they said since they've had to many issues with them they're replacing them.
