The food and service was amazing here!! The manager came out to discuss GF needs and explained that the food was prepared in a separate kitchen. They brought out an entire loaf of GF bread for us as an appetizer! They have a limited menu for GF, but the meals were exquisite. This is highly recommended for anyone looking for an Italian meal while in Epcot!
This was my pre-Celiac favorite. I haven't eaten there since going gf, but here's why: we have spoken to them in person and through Disney and it's not Celiac safe. It is an open air kitchen and they do toss pizza with flour in the air. Flour gets everywhere and they acknowledge there WILL be cross contamination. They do have gf options and if you're only gluten intolerant, you may be fine, but there is way too much of a chance of ingesting gluten for Celiacs. Thought others would want to know!
I'm a picky eater but am a total fan of pasta! Upon being stated our table was asked right away if there were any food allergies and they had a manager come out and explain the menu. pretty much everything apart from a few dishes and the pizza. They offer gluten free pasta and have gluten free bread as well.
I just ate here two days ago and I had a wonderful experience! I had gluten free pasta and it was large, delicious, and very filling. There were many GF options to choose from, but sadly pizza was not able to be made this way. The servers were excellent, and the chef delivered my meal personally. We were told the pasta and the pizza my parents got came from different kitchens, which was great, and the bread they gave me before hand was amazing! It was a little expensive but well worth it!
Worst Disney dining experience. Every other Disney restaurant or snack stand has been so accommodating and reassuring. We stated GF on our reservations (it asks for allergies in the reservation). Stated again at the check. Waiter STILL had NO clue. Manager was dismissive. Said we could order anything that wasn't fried, pizza and one item on the appetizers. So we ordered... And he comes back and says we all ordered wrong and had to order again. Manager did not take our order as in Disney restaurants.... Mom and Dad finally gave up and ordered salad. B & I got a gf rotini pasta with Alfredo and chicken. So very very disappointed.
I always have a good meal here...just wish that they had a larger variety. They offer pasta and on occasion, grilled chicken. They are very mindful of contamination since they prepare pizza in an open kitchen. They do offer GF bread with your meal.
