We had dinner here on a Friday night. Had to sit outside as it was so crowded but luckily it was warm enough. Good to have a reservation. Lots of gf pasta choices and the gf pizza was delicious. Slower service.

We had a great meal but things go wrong in any restaurant. Some don't match our expectations for comping when this happens & I usually won't return.
