They are really fantastic with GF. They have labeled menu items that are gf or can be made gf with easier changes. They have GF pasta and GF veal dishes. They are very nice and good about being careful. They understand needing to wash pans/cook pasta in fresh water (this can be a dangerous thing in Italian places). I love this place.

They were very nice when I walked in, however I asked about cross contamination because I am super sensitive with Celiac. The host/server state that he would love for us to stay and dine, but it would most likely not be in my best interest to eat there. He said that the nature of the kitchen would make the possibility of cross contamination extremely high and that he gluten free options are best for gluten sensitive people. He said it was not a good option for those with Celiac. I was very pleased with his candor.

Celiac friendly?

Very friendly owners who are extremely accommodating and knowledgable, and delicious food make this a family favorite of ours. Prices are on the higher side of Italian chain joints, but you can totally see why on the first bite of food.
