We ate here during our vacation to Universal Studios. Our server was very knowledgeable. Our daughter had gluten free penne pasta with meat sauce. There is not a dedicated gluten free menu, but I think they can make just about any menu item gluten free. My only suggestion would be to have gluten free bread. The restaurant serves a basket of bread with olive oil before the meal but there was no gluten free bread.

Great meal! My server double checked with the chefs if the chicken piccata pasta could be made gluten free and it could. She said most of the pasta and pizza dishes could be made GF. It was reasonably sized and very tasty! Be sure to make a reservation for this gem as it gets very busy at prime meal times. My whole family enjoyed their dinner and it was nice to have a good sit down meal after going all day.

My celiac daughter was able to order a gluten free pizza cooked and prepared separately. It was delicious! Highly recommend. They could also prepare gluten free pasta

Amazing! Definitely reserve a spot ahead of time if you can- you can call or reserve online. SO MUCH GF FOOD. The menu is labeled but they also have GF dough for pizzas and GF pasta. Pretty much anything can be made GF. Lots of vegetarian options as well. I had an incredible vegetarian risotto. Highly recommend! Waitress very knowledgable!

Jason the Manager was confident in that this establishment uses minimal soy and offers gluten free pasta and pizza. He delivered my food as well. Andrew was our waiter and he was great. I had the Sausage Ragu. It was delicious, filling and not over priced.

Manager came to table to talk through options and assure me of proper separate handling. She delivered my food to table separate. Did separate the Crostinis from group charcuterie plate. Not a lot of gf options but did take special care.

Warm GF bread with olive oil was delicious. My celiac son ate two loaves. Then had a GF penne pasta dish. Delish! Lots of the menu items can be made GF and the kitchen manager came out to talk to us before she personally brought out our meals. The only complaint was our waiter was a little slow. We were t sure if it was him or the GF order. Food was wonderful.

We came in, asked about gluten free meals. They said absolutely, about 80 percent of the menu can be made for celiac. They started me with my own gluten free bread, the chef actually was brought to my table to discuss what I would like or if I wanted anything custom made for me being a celiac . Went out of their way to make sure I was 100% safe. My Food was delivered by a manager. 100% the place to go ! Great job by the entire staff!

I very rarely eat out because of nerves about getting sick. But I was completely amazed!!!! Fresh gluten free bread made on arrival, with olive oil. Very rare to find that! For dinner I had grilled chicken parm with penne pasta (which is the only GF noodle they have). Portions were huge, I had dinner for the next night. Chef comes out to table. Only downside is there is no specific gluten free menu, the chef discusses what you can have.

The staff and food was amazing! I was only recently diagnosed with celiac and they were able to help tremendously. The manager or a cook comes out and helps you build a meal you would like around their gluten free pasta and the possibilities are endless. They make a loaf of GF bread in house if you ask for one, and you feel like your eating the best bread in the world. Five stars is not enough to show my appreciation for the staff and the experience I had here.

What a great meal! The waiter was very nice and got the chef out for me. We discussed what I could & liked to eat & he made me a great meal of all seafood and vegetables (instead of gluten free pasta or rice, because I don’t eat pasta or rice). The brought 2 loaves of gf bread, which even my family liked. I also got a best salad without the cheese, nuts, or balsamic because of dairy, nut, & soy sensitivity. The whole family enjoyed the meal and I did too!

Felt safe for celiac but options were limited to pasta (chef didn't rec. pizza due to contamination). Dessert limited to vanilla ice cream. Went back 3/18 and only additional comment is that the pasta was hard and not good. Downgraded to 3 stars

I honestly had the worst reaction I've experienced in 15 years. I ordered the gluten free penne pasta. The chef even came out to verify. As I was eating the pasta I found a regular spaghetti noodle in my dish. I thought uh-oh..but didn't want to make a fuss because I was with a group of 18 work associates. I then found a second regular spaghetti noodle buried within the dish. My best guess is that they either cooked the gf pasta in a pot of regular pasta water or they used shared utensils. I don't know for sure, but I can tell you that within a couple of hours I was a tremendous mess.

our waiter, Brandon was gluten-free and took excellent care of us. He was the conductor of the whole evening being careful to get our gf meals to us hot. Chef Luca even came out and helped me design my own pasta primavera dish. Be sure and order 2 loaves of bread, its amazing!

Our waiter was very friendly. Staff was great and very nice dining area. My family and I our gluten free and we were very happy to find out they had starting gluten free bread. Sadly it took 22 minutes for our bread to come out and it was very cold. Good but cold. Then we ordered the pasta. There were 5 tables in the restaurant at the time. It took 49 minutes after our bread came out for the pasta to come out. We ordered the alfredo. Alfredo sauce not good super liquidy, not think and more milk then any other ingredient. The pasta was super hard my mom and I couldn't even eat it. Thankfully they took it off our checks. That was one bad experience but they were very knowledgeable about gluten free.

Three of the six of us are Celiac. They brought out gf baguettes (pretty tasty and I don't like bread). Chef came out to talk with us. Shared the antipasto and they brought gluten components separately. Our gf meals were penne with bolognese (sp), the brick chicken, and white gf pizza. Overall great experience...and then there was the Toothsome Chocolate Factory 😒

The have a really good gf bread baguette. Ask for it right at the beginning to have it on time with your meal as it is done on a make-to-order

I had the salmon. Loved it. Reasonable portion meaning not too big. Nice waitress.

A bit noisy at evening
