    Great food. The only place nearby that I can get good gluten free chicken strips with bacon cheese fries. Highly recommend.

    I’m celiac and eat here all the time. I’ve only ever tried their chicken fingers and fries and their chicken parmigiana. They’re tasty enough but too pricey for the quality. Haven’t gotten sick here.

    Second time I had a gluten free meal there. Each time very disappointed with flavor and quality. Had the pizza this time - crust like a saltine, undercooked peppers and overcooked/ burnt dried tomato, bacon was good. Very little sauce. Some pieces had lots of toppings others had almost none. Dried tomatoes were in big hunks-not sliced and I couldn't have pepperoni (my favorite) because they buy a brand that has wheat flour in it?!?. My conclusion is that this is not a very tasty place to eat if you must be gluten free, others in the area do a much better job. Gluten free by medical necessity, not by choice.

    Decent gluten free menu, especially for an Italian/pizza restaurant! Got great gluten free pizza and also gluten free cheese ravioli! Delicious too! Service was great. My son is also dairy free so we brought our own Daiya dairy free cheese to top his pizza and they were happy to accommodate and make his pizza with that. Will definitely be back.

    I have eaten here twice and both times the staff was very knowledgeable about eating gluten free. The pizza was hot, fresh and tasty. The chicken strips and fries were also very good.

    Nice GF options. Separate fryer for fries, which is a nice option. Owners do understand CC. Very good GF buns & burgers. Chicken club is very good also. Nice to have a safe place to eat at SML!

    Went today for first time and had a really good experience. The atmosphere is nice, staff was al friendly and helpful. I am celiac so it's important to not just have gluten ingredients. I asked for the gluten free menu and there was a decent variety (Italian and sandwiches). I was surprised to see french fries on it so I asked if they were made in a dedicated frier.... Nope. So I avoided the fries. I ordered the chicken sandwich and it was very good. When it first came out it was obvious the chips on the plate (which weren't listed on the menu as a side) were homemade and fried so I asked about them and the waitress apologized that she didn't think about them not fitting my needs. Due to my celiac I kindly requested a new sandwich to be made and they were understanding. I was told the manager is gluten free so he/she was making the second one for me. When I go back again I will clarify if a side comes with a dish and make sure it's one I can eat. The sandwich was about $9.50 (supposed to come with a side, but mine didn't) so I would ask if there is something I could get in place of the fried sides. She said most of their gf customers aren't sensitive so they eat the fries. I wish their menu had a disclaimer about the non dedicated frier. I also probably should have asked about their cooking method of the grilled chicken and to make sure their pasta isn't made in same water as regular. But 2 hours later no effects of cross contamination so I think they did well. I look forward to trying other things. One thing to note is that they do upcharge for the gluten free items. What was about $10 on reg menu was about $14 on GF. Thankful for a place that offers GF. Side note my son is dairy and egg free and the only thing on kids menu I felt comfortable with was the burger and fries with no bun.

    Small gluten free menu with pizza, pasta, chicken fingers and some breads. The Pizza was good. Came out with a separate pizza cutter still wrapped and labeled gluten free. They have a disclaimer on the bottom of the menu stating small amount of cross contamination may occur, that is the reason for the 3 star rating. The were very accommodating so may take the extra precautions.
