Came here for date night with celiac husband. Our waitress was helpful with our questions about allergy safety and claimed that they use separate cookware to make GF pasta meals. Husband did not get sick, so they seem to be safe! Be clear with your server about your allergies, and you’ll probably be just fine.

Food flavor was just OK, but IMO definitely not worth the $38+ $5 GF penne substitute charge.

Not a good experience. Food was decent and the prices are high. But I found a hair in my food and the waiter didn’t seem to concerned. I had not even taken a bite. They offer no insensitive for their poor mistake in the kitchen. On top of that the waiter knew nothing about gluten free and I got sick. Don’t go there if you have celiac.

Had a great experience here! The waiter was knowledgeable about celiac and walked me through the menu on what sauces I could have. There was no gluten free bread but no problem with that. My meal was tasty and the pasta was yummy! Bonus points because their Alfredo was GF!

This restaurant never disappoints. The gluten free penne and pizza is delicious. I’ve never gotten sick and I have celiac. I did not request a separate boiler, my celiac is not as sensitive as others.

SOOOOOOOOOO DELICIOUS!! They offer GF penne pasta and most everything on the menu can be made gluten free. Nothing on the menu is marked GF, but the waiter was extremely accommodating and let me know all of my options. I had an 8oz prime steak with grilled veggies and the gluten free pasta. It was the best gluten free pasta I’ve ever had - cooked perfectly al dente! Highly recommended!

We came to this location for Thanksgiving dinner with our Celiac 6 yo. The location offers penne pasta as a GF option. Our server was knowledgeable about the need for the GF pasta to be cooked separately to avoid cross contamination with wheat based foods. Our daughter very much enjoyed the Alfredo sauce with the GF penne. The rest of us that ordered regular food really enjoyed our meals (classic Thanksgiving plate and Chicken Parm). Definitely recommend this location and we plan to come back.
