Gluten friendly but absolutely not celiac friendly. There is an extremely high risk of cross contamination as I found out after eating my food. Besides from that, their food is not great.

Placed an order for gluten free pizza and when we drove all the way over to pick it up, we were told they don’t offer it anymore!

Maybe change the online menu so people don’t waste their time driving out for gluten free food? And also alert the person on the phone that you don’t offer gluten free food.

Server and service was fantastic but this place is not celiac friendly. Items on the menu that can be made gluten free are marked. I requested the Fra Diavolo pasta as it is marked that it can be made gluten free but asked to double check with the chef. The chef mentioned that the dish could not be made gluten free as it contains some Alfredo sauce that has flour in it. So use caution even when ordering menu items marked gluten free. I then went with the Caesar salad as I was assured it’s safe but there ended up being cross contamination as I was sick within a hour.

Items marked GF on menu. I ordered the grilled salmon, along with my another member of my party. They brought the dishes and I asked before eating if I had the GF dish. The server said yes. About 5 minutes into our meal, the server and manager came over to our table and informed me I’d been given the wrong plate. The sweet potatoes seasoning was not GF. Was sick for 10 days. I gave this restaurant another try last night. I thought it would be safe to order same meal since I knew what to look for. Plate came out correctly, however I’m sick again this morning. Not confident with cross contamination here.

Cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience here! Not only was the food delicious but my server, Teresa, was excellent! She was very knowledgeable about Celiac and ensured me she and everyone in the kitchen would take every precaution to ensure I did not get sick. I had the Gluten Free Pasta Woozie and it was amazing! I definitely would recommend this place; I will be coming back!

I started going here based on the reviews on this app and input from the local Celiac support group. I've gone twice. The first time was great. The female server was very thoughtful and careful. We got our food and didn't have any Celiac reactions. The second time we went, the server was flippant about it and even brought a salad with gluten containing croutons despite telling us that it was gluten free. I actually ate two bites before I saw the croutons underneath the lettuce. We had been very clear to the him about the seriousness of our condition. He comped the salad but that doesn't matter if i get sick. I will call the manager. I will note that the food is not great. It's not bad but not great.

No dedicated menu in restaurant. I did find one online. Staff had minimal knowledge on GF. Ordered pasta woozie GF and my friend had regular pasta wookie. They gave me an identical plate as my friend. The staff was apologetic and switched out my dish. Thankful I pointed out the noodles matched. Not sure if the sauce is gf. I did have a mild reaction. Won't go again

Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. As soon as I told my waiter that I had Celiac, he took note and assured me that the gluten free pasta was prepared separately. I ordered the Pasta Bravo, and after my order was placed, the waiter came back and informed me he talked to the chef too. My food came out by the manager, and was very good. When it came to dessert, I asked if there were any options since the menu listed none. The waiter went and checked, and the Creme Brulee was actually gf - it was amazing. All in all, great experience, and no adverse reactions. I'll definitely dine here again!

Not safe they got our order wrong twice and said the pasta was gluten free and it was not. So they either have no idea or don’t care and put me daughter at risk so waste of money and time and not safe.

It’s easy to tell their gluten free pasta apart because it’s spirals. I ended up with part of a regular fettuccini noodle in my gluten free pasta :-/ the manager assured me he’d talk to the kitchen staff about it but I was very disappointed because I have previously had very good experiences at other Brio and Bravo restaurants

They have changed their menu. Only a few pasta dishes and steak or salmon. I ordered a pasta dish but the waiter realized it was not gf noodles. They made the dish again but it wasn’t anything great. I didn’t get sick but it will be awhile before I go back.

Me and my grandmother both order a gluten free pasta. The cooks messed it up the first time but before even bringing the food out they corrected it. And they gave us a free salad and free dessert. It was delicious and a little high but worth it!!!!

I had one of the worst meals eating out here. My dinner took over an hour to be served. I ordered my steak medium and it was rare. My mashed potatoes were gummy. I didn't get sick, however, I will never go back to this location. Not sure if celiac friendly.

I ate at this location on August 23rd, 2018. Their menu has several items which are clearly marked 'GF' including gluten-free pastas which they prepare in a separate area from all other pastas. I had a salmon salad and found it to be really tasty and did not get sick. My one complaint was that I wish they actually offered a separate gluten free menu so that I wouldn't have to see all their other pasta dishes that I can't eat. :-(

My wife has been a celiac for 14 years. She is very careful and rarely has a reaction. She recently ate at this Bravo location and was violently sick for 3 days. She was obviously served wheat pasta instead of GF pasta. Do not trust the staff at this location. By far the worst reaction she has ever had eating at a restaurant.

I have celiac. Informed servers of allergy. No guarantee of no contamination. Menu isn’t exactly large but it’s more than we get at most places. Has GF noodles! Have ate here several times and no contamination yet.

GF selections are a few fewer than what the photo from a previous post shows. They had a strip steak, filet and 3-4 pasta dishes. They have a few salads too. They answered questions correctly. Was thrown off a bit because the previous GF pasta was a penne pasta. When we received our food it was rotini. We asked to confirm that it was GF - they double checked and said yes. No one got sick. Delicious food!

They have markings on the regular menu for items that can be made gluten free. There is no way to prevent some cross contamination but she told me they use fresh pans and utensils to make the food if you tell them it’s an allergy. I’m very, very sensitive (Celiac)so of course I had a minor reaction but I think this place would be ok for gluten sensitive or someone who isn’t very reactive.

There are many gluten free options on the menu, but they do call out they cannot ensure GF cooking practices. My dish came out littered with bread crumbs. Upon getting it a second time, the pasta (which is just boxed from the store) was extremely over cooked and the sauce has no flavor.

The staff was very helpful and knew about celiac and cross contamination. I called and they offered to let me talk with Chef Ralph who assured me I would be safe. Upon arrival the shift manager talked with us, then the general manager/owner came to our table to check on us, and chef Ralph came out to our table also.... made sure all was good and gave me a hug! I had pasta woozie which was very good. Excellent and would go again!
