I am a celiac and I just discovered this restaurant! When you walk in they ask if you need a gluten free menu which is something I’ve never been asked before. They have an amazing variety of options for gluten free. The service was insanely good and there was nothing but an evening filled with laughs and a great environment. The chef comes out to check up on you during the meal asking if you need anything else and checking in to see how you’re enjoying the meal.

Went there with f...

Went there with friends last night and the meal I ordered had plastic inside. I put it aside thinking it might be just one occasion and took a second and a third bite, it had the same issue. When I brought it to their attention, instead of apologizing, the owner was explaining why the plastic was inside. Apparently, it was in the freezer so they wrap the food and the new cook forgot to remove the plastic wrap before cooking. worst experience. Very argumentative owner..will never eat there.

The Best!

I have to say that this was the best dining experience I've had in a long time. The food was absolutely amazing! Those stuffed mushrooms should win a culinary prize! The pizza with grilled chicken breast, roasted red peppers and goat cheese was a perfect combination on the thin-crust. Then to the tiramisu - WOW! There is nothing like it in this city. So light and refreshing. The portion size was just right to end a beautiful meal. I really must highly recommend this restaurant and will be making it one of my new, regular places. The food was amazing, the service was top-notch and the atmosphere was relaxing and fun. Give this place a try - you will probably see me there.

DO NOT EAT HERE !!!! I USED TO WORK HERE !!! If you dont finish the bread on your plate they reuse it and turn it into croutons. I have seen the cook eat off the plate with his fingers then serve the plate. Pizza dough fell on the dirty floor and was still used. That is just a few examples of the gross stuff they do and trust me there is lots more.

Does catering too

Please know that this restaurant does excellent catering to businesses and events. They provide you not only with excellent food but with excellent service. The lasagna that we had for lunch was fresh, the best. Everything was hot and on time.

The brick and dark wood interior of this restaurant may not be to everyone’s taste, but the food certainly is. As an Italian restaurant, the staples include pasta, which can be made to order with gluten-free alternatives. You can’t even tell the difference with most dishes, and the lasagna is extremely good. The space is a little crowded at times, but the kitchen is always willing to accommodate food allergies.
