This is a must eat!!! They have a decent GF menu and our server Kyler was very knowledgeable and accommodating. For a small charge you can get GF "bread" which is more like flat bread but yummy. I had GF pasta with seafood and hubby had GF chicken alfredo and we were both very happy. Best GF pasta ever!!!

Ok, so um. I really hate giving bad reviews. But I called the restaurant prior to visiting to ensure that when you lovely people said they could make practically anything gluten free, that they really could. The woman on the phone assured me this was the case. So imagine my surprise when we got there (by the way, the atmosphere is nice, but I also didn't feel too out of place in my traveling sweatpants) and our waitress told us that they'd recently changed sauce providers, so the only thing we could have was the marinara. Which should have been a red flag, because if you have a sauce provider, then the sauce is clearly not made in-house. And you can definitely taste the difference. So...yeah. A bit disappointing.

Zio's has an amazing gluten free menu, with pastas, pizza, and flatbread! By far, my favorite restaurant in Springfield.

This was a great experience and the food was yummy! The waiter, Thomas, was very attentive to the need of GF. He offered flat bread and even left the croutons off of my salad even though I forgot to ask. He also offered a separate plate for the herbs so there would be no contamination. The fact that he mentioned "contamination" was a big plus.

I had pasta which was very good. They also have gf flat bread you can have with the meal at a slight charge. I made sure they used new water and pans for the pasta. I did not have a stomach ache or any bad feelings after :-) The waitress was very uneducated however about the gf menu and I basically had to give her a little education...I would say cross contamination could happen fairly easy but during this visit I was fine. The menu was also nice with many options.

Excellent meal. I ordered the pepperoni and chicken pasta. The pasta was great. I had to take a box home because the serving was enough for two. When I heated up the leftovers it was still tasty, some gluten free pasta is terrible heated up, this was just as good as the first time.

Disappointed but I didn't get sick. The "gluten free bread option", for which there is an extra charge, is their gluten free pizza dough. It's not even reshaped. You are served a salty, pizza dough. The gluten free pasta tasted like a microwave dinner and was poorly seasoned. However, I did not get c glutened. It's not the best option but it's not the worst.

My husband found out had gluten free and took me there . They had a variety of gluten free options. The even brought out gluten free bread and dipping sauce prior to the meal! I felt like everyone else being able to eat bread prior to the meal.

Excellent gluten-free menu options. They even have a gluten free flatbread that they can substitute in place of the regular bread. The food is good and the service has been good as well.
