Do not recommend for celiacs. Asked if they could do the seafood dish gluten free was just steamed seafood in garlicky tomato broth… and was assured that they could. It came with bread on the side of the plate and what I thought was garlic in the broth turned out to be bread crumbs used to thicken the sauce. Highly recommend for non-celiacs though. My husband loves the place.

Worst experience I’ve EVER had at a restaurant. Extremely unaccomodating. Tried to tell me the risotto should be okay because it only has a “little” gluten in it 😒 Then our whole table ordered meals, I ordered the shrimp scampi, my meal turned up with bread across it. I ask them to take it back and remake. Then the manager comes out to tell me I can’t be served because the whole kitchen is a risk and the chef doesn’t want to serve me… but this is after everyone else I’m with has already been served their meals. Absolutely ridiculous and unfortunate experience.

Do not go here with celiacs! They do have salads on the menu that could probably be gluten free but our server was honest with us and told us do not eat here with celiacs. There is no safe place in the kitchen to prepare a celiac safe meal and salads most likely would have cross contamination. She said there is flour everywhere from the pizzas. Appreciate the honestly!
