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!

Loved the Pasta Woozie! It wasn’t soaked in Alfredo sauce - just enough. They could make most of the pasta dishes gluten free. Waiter was very knowledgeable.

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.

The risotto was very good, many GF options, including lobster Mac & cheese. Overall we liked it. However...Prices were a bit high for the portion sizes. Service was S-L-O-W...we were there nearly two hours for a one course meal!

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.

Superb!! They have great checks in place to ensure your pasta is GF. Easily accommodate and educated about GF. Food was exceptional especially for a chain. Doesn't feel like a chain.

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!

When we were seated, my mom asked to speak with the head chef. She explained to him that my celiac son was nervous about eating outside of the house recently and asked if he could assure us that the gluten free food was safe for celiac diners. The chef responded with one word: "yes". I would have felt better if he went on to explain the precautions taken in the kitchen, but I figured 'yes' was better than 'no'. The restaurant was fairly empty, so I was comfortable that they would be able to prevent cross contamination. My son ordered the GF pasta woozie without chicken. When we ordered, the server asked if he had an allergy or if this was a food preference. I took that as a good sign. As my son was eating his meal, he noticed part of a ravioli in his dish. We notified the staff who apologized. The manager (?) personally watched the chef remake the dish and she assured us that it was safe to eat this time. My mom dined there again within the same week. She mentioned the incident to a manager and was told that she did not hear of the gluten incident and she should have been informed. This restaurant handled the situation professionally, and didn't charge us for the dish, but this should not have happened.

I have celiac and my husband and I come here all the time and sit in the bar section. David, one of the managers told me shortly after I was diagnosed that all of their pasta is boiled separately. Any time they have accidentally made my djsh wjth gluten, they have always told me of the mistake and remade it (and given me a free glass of wine for the mistake!) They really care about gluten sensitive people. Plus the food is absolutely amazing. The shrimp scampi, chicken with sun dried tomato goat cheese and creme brûlée are my favorite :) one of my favorite restaurants in the area by far!

Ate here today with my 3 year ole daughter who has celiac. Made waitress aware she cannot have gluten and ordered gf pasta with butter. Double checked with waitress when food came out that the noodles were gf. She assured me they were. Two hours later and my daughter has been vomiting with belly pain all afternoon/night. I will never go back here. Would not suggest anyone with a gluten issue/celiac disease eat here
