My waiter didn't seem to know how to answer gf questions and would say, "Umm, well, yeah, that should be fine." Not exactly inspiring confidence. He also said that the gf pasta is cooked in the same water as regular pasta. I ended up with grilled chicken topped with tomatos and garlic, with veggies on the side, and I had a negative reaction within 20 minutes.

They told me I could have any of the pasta sauces with GF pasta, I had the chicken, mushroom, tomato and cream and it was absolutely delicious. Pasta was cooked well and tasted the same as normal pasta.

All staff was knowledgable about options for gluten free. They haves corn based gluten free pasta. They told me any of their sauces and dishes except the spaghetti and meatballs could be made gluten free. I didn't question them about the lasagna though. The food was AMAZING.

This used to be my favorite Italian place before getting Celiac's disease. I read the previous review about gluten free pasta, and went there today. I can confirm that they have gluen free pasta, and it was as good as I remember it.
