I ordered Eggplant Parmesan. The dish was very good. The pasta was enough for 3 people and the marinara sauce was fair. We went on a Tuesday at 6 pm and the place was quite full.

They do have gluten free pasta options. Like most gluten free pasta, it is just okay. There are other menu items that are pasta and gluten free.
