Their menu has zero gluten free substitutes/options. I asked our server for gluten free options and she ended up bringing me an allergy menu after we asked multiple times. When I ordered my dish she just seemed very bothered by the fact that I had an allergy and she had to deal with it. Granted I know it’s a pasta establishment but still. I ended up ordering the create your own pasta with the pomodorino sauce, their gluten free pasta, and some chicken and spinach. It was pretty good, it’s just the service and attitude that was subpar.
— Not very
— Separate gluten-free menu
— Not Much
— Below Average
Super knowledgeable staff. A little pricey but definitely worth it.
— Separate gluten-free menu
If you have Celiac Disease this is not the restaurant for you. Even the non gluten items like steak and fish are still grilled on the same surface as the bread. Our waitress was very helpful, but this establishment is not set up for gluten free.
— Not at all
— No gluten-free information on the menu
The gluten-free pasta was the best! Great waiter. She said she could make pasta dish on the menu gluten-free and she stuck to her word
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
So they only really offer a pasta substitute that is gluten free, which isn’t bad and if you have cooked gluten free pasta you know it’s temperamental, which in my case they did a great wonderful job. I was told only 2 sauces were considered gluten free which is a olive oil garlic one, & normal red sauce. I am sure both would be great but not ideal for things like fettuccine Alfredo, or other dishes. But I did opt for their garlic cream sauce since i am gluten intolerant not celiac but it’s been a hour and so far no issues. So i would just say for celiac it’s extremely limited, for gluten intolerance i would say at your own risk. But i very much enjoyed my meal, they made sure to let me know when it came out it was gluten free and if there were any issues they would take it back ASAP. Also they do offer to add sauce on the side if you want to try the sauce out before pouring it over your entire meal.
I asked the waiter about gluten free options and he said “We have pasta, but it is really bad. You don’t want it.” Then proceeded to tell me I should get the regular pasta instead. We walked out. Not gluten friendly at all!
Create your own pasta... very knowledgeable staff!!!
Gluten free menu is limited but good. Get the create your pasta bowl and they have gluten free pasta and sauce. They said they rest of the food on the menu can made to be gluten free but is cross contaminated.
My server was very rude about giving me a gluten free menu until I mentioned I had celiac. He said the only safe options was the gf noodles with oil and butter but that he would watch them make it. I still got very sick and won’t ever be back
Went yesterday and the waiter said they no longer had nutritional/allergy info available. He was also uneducated and told me a sauce was GF that was not (based on the corporate website). I had the GF pasta with pesto. It was vile. I couldn’t even pretend to eat the pasta.
2 stars because there was something for me to eat, but only 2 because it was gross and the wait staff was misleading.
Not a good experience here tonight. The waiter seemed cavalier with my concerns about the food and gluten. I ordered GF spaghetti with meatballs. He assured me there was no gluten in the meatballs, but I got sick shortly after eating. I don’t recommend if you have celiac.
The staff was super knowledgeable and helpful with my allergy! The restaurant offers a gluten free noodle, so nearly any dish could be modified as gluten free. I got the pollo caprese, and it was amazing! The only thing that could make this restaurant better would be more gluten free variety, such as a pizza crust. Other than that, absolutely fantastic!
Great place with nice people and good food. Two of our family members need to be gluten free; not only did they have gluten free options but they were delicious! Our waiter, Nicholas, was very kind, friendly, and knowledgeable! It was so nice to eat at a place and feel safe about our allergies.
While they do not have a separate gluten-free menu, they do offer gluten-free pasta and will tell you which sauces are gf. Not one to test the theory, I chose the Chicken Under a Brick entree. Kaiti, our waitress, was very knowledgeable and also spoke with the chef. I had a delicious, tender, moist and flavorful half chicken served with grilled red potatoes seasoned with fresh rosemary as well as broccolini spears. I would definitely go back.
The waiter was very knowledgeable and super helpful. He went to double check with the chef on which sauces we could do with the gluten free pasta. There was lots of options! I did the spicy arrabiata with shrimp. Kids did mac and cheese, butter sauce with chicken and a meat sauce. Loved it all and so happy we can eat here since the celiac diagnosis.
Do not eat here if you have celiac disease. They do offer gluten-free pasta which is cooked in the same water as the regular pasta so it is been cross contaminated. My daughter was able to eat a Caesar salad and a piece of chicken anything else was likely not safe for her to eat.
This was great. I was skeptical because of the reviews on here but I'm happy I gave it a shot. I'm not only gluten free, but also dairy free, and my waiter made sure every time he came over with a serving that he mentioned my food didn't have any gluten or dairy in it.
I ordered the gluten free pasta and it was so delicious I almost didn't believe it was gluten free! So I asked where it was from and my waiter sent over the manager. He came over and assured me they use separate pots of water as well as separate pots in general specifically set aside for gluten free pasta. (Even though I didn't ask) He also wasn't sure exactly how I could buy the pasta despite telling me the brand because they buy in bulk, but told me I can buy it through them if I give them notice, and gave me a great price. It was a great experience and I will definitely be returning!
Although The menu refutes any liability for allergies, the order taker assured us that every action would be taken to ensure no cross-contamination. When I arrived to pick up my to go order I checked with the waiter and he double checked with the whole staff that handled my food that gloves were changed separate utensil separate pots were used. I haven't been this ill from "GF" food in months. I will NEVER go back there.
Ordered gluten free noodles and received regular noodles! Had to ask for it to be re-made. Server didn't care or recognize they weren't gluten free. Service wasn't great. They don't guarantee the noodles and dishes are safe and they aren't knowledgeable or safe when it comes to making and serving the dishes.
The North Olmstead (Ohio) location is excellent for celiacs if you can forego the bread offered to everyone else. They have a true gf pasta dish every day, and you can add chicken or vegetables. The red sauce is gf but they have to make you gf white sauce, which takes some extra time, so tell them as soon as you get there if you will want white sauce. They have always made it for me. The staff is very knowledgeable about cross contamination and honest if they need to find out the answer to a question for you. I have never been sick from eating there and the food is amazing.
I called ahead and spoke with a manager about their gluten free options. He was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. He told me all about their gluten free pasta which is made and transported from Italy! When I got to the restaurant, the hard part was watching my husband eat the delicious bread without me. By far the worst part of gluten free Italian eating. :( I placed the order with the waiter and she seemed competent in preventing cross contamination. Then came the pasta. It changes from time to time but currently they have a thin fettuccine type noodle that's not actually fettuccine. I ordered the chicken "fettuccine" alfredo plate. It was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Seriously, I cannot stop thinking about it a month later. You could not tell if was gluten free pasta! I have no idea how they managed this but it is truly a miracle. And I didn't get sick so it passed the test. The manager that I had spoken with on the phone even came out and pulled up a chair while we were eating, just to tell me a little more about the pasta and the company that makes it. Service was above and beyond excellent. This will be our go-to for Italian food. If you can just get past the bread portion of the evening without losing your mind! :(
Ask for Gary... Very well knowledgeable on GF. I always get their Carmen's Chicken with GF fettucine. So good!! Must must try!!
Gluten free pasta is back and the staff is knowledgable and careful. Have celiac and did not get sick after eating create your own pasta with chicken and veggies and Caesar salad minus the croutons. Only downside is it's not on the menu so be prepared to talk to waiter/waitress for a bit.
They changed their menus & no longer offer anything. Gluten free.
I ordered a 2 kid sized gf Mac n cheese on one plate. I got almost what I ordered I got 2 kid sized mac n cheese but it was not gluten free. I got trebly sick and my father called the restaurant and it was the waiters fault and he did not write or punch in gluten free. The waiter was also fired right after the phone call but I found out right away well not right away after few bites of pasta I was told and left instantly and got sick 3-5 hours later for 10 hours straight!!!
