My go to place for gluten-free pizza! Amazing gluten-free crust and wicked good salad for the appetizer! Very cautious - uses tin foil on pizza plates and seperate brick oven to prevent contamination! I also love how they try to source as locally as possible.
Great gf pizza and beer
The crust is some of the best GF crust I've had, and the kitchen and staff are aware of Celiac and food preparation. They have a separate station for making the GF flatbreads, and they wrap the crust in tin foil before putting it in the brick oven. They are as cautious as can be. That being said, this place is not safe for anyone with Celiac. There is flour everywhere, the brick oven is small and shared with regular flatbreads/pizzas. It's just not possible to avoid. The staff is great and they have the knowledge and commitment, but if you have Celiac you shouldn't eat here.
Flatbreads always my go-to regardless of location. It's not an Udi's shell which most cop-out places use because it's easy--don't get me wrong I use it at home but that defeats the purpose of going out. Always prepped in a separate location to not cross contaminate. Cooked on foil but still get that wood fired flavor. And cut with a separate cutter. Love it there!!
The "flatbread" is ok. Would not go out of my way to get it again. Went only because folks in my group wanted Pizza. There are a lot of very good restaurants in Portsmouth that are accommodating and have a more interesting menu selections. But if you have concerns about cross contamination, they do control that very carefully.
I have celiac and have eaten here several times with no ill-effects. Each time I go I explain that I have celiac and tell them I need them to be very careful when prepping my pizza. The crust comes in its own pan already so the crust doesn't actually ever touch the oven or the counter. They also use separate utensils. And they even have Green's Amber Ale GF beer (best tasting GF beer IMO)!
Too much flour in the air apparently as we got sick from the GF pizza. Bummer, since it tastes good!
Expensive, but good food. Some of the better gf crust in the area.
I agree with the reviewer who said there is too much flour flying in the air to be safe. Even though they prepare the pizza in a separate room, I've seen them carry the uncovered pizza by the area where they are flipping dough on the way to the oven. It tastes good, but too often is burnt.
The best gluten free pizza I have ever had. The service was great and the atmosphere was awesome.
I love their GF pizza!!! They have really good salads as well.
Delicious pizza with awesome crust, but an extra $4.50 for gluten free crust hikes the price up quite a bit! Worth a stop if you're craving normal tasting pizza!
while they do make an effort to avoid cross-contact, there is simply too much flour in the air to be safe for Celiac. visiting when it first opens so that there is less flour in the air may help.
Love Flatbread in Portland & this place is also very great about being gluten free! Amazing pizza & the goat cheese salad is my absolute favorite!
THIS PLACE WAS AWESOME! Their pizza was the best gluten free pizza I have ever had. Both the server and the manager made sure they went through the whole process with us. Everything is local, homemade, or organic and every pizza can be made gluten free. They prep everything in a separate area. They have a decent selection of ciders and gf beers. For dessert, they had gluten free brownies and maple whoopie pies. It is pricey, but I would pay for a lot for such great service.
Definitely not gluten free. My wife has celiac to the extreme. 2 emergency surgeries from it before being diagnosed. She threw up within 30 minutes of eating. My youngest daughter had green, loose stools the following day. I should have suspected a problem when the order taker asked if the reason for gluten free was a food allergy, or a fad diet. BTW. On top of not being gluten free, this was the worst pizza that I, my wife, or my children have ever had. We ordered 2 different GF pizzas and one that was not GF. I don't know where all of the 5 star ratings are from. ??? I did notice that some of the eaters said that they had celiacs. A true celiac knows that there is no s in celiac disease.
I've been a loyal flat bread fan for almost a decade and just discovered this new location while in town for business. service was great...manager came to see how my meal was and they even served the gluten free pizza on a special tray to denote the allergen. five star amazing organic restaurant.
Fast! Texture is amazing, taste homemade. Best Pizza period!
The gf crust was very soft and larger than most gf pizza. The selection of nitrate free meats and organic ingredients is impressive. My pizza was not hot and there was no crisp on the crust except for browned edges. I sent it back to be cooked longer with little improvement. The manger and wait staff were very friendly and apologetic. I might return, and would try ordering it well done, but I've had better GF pizza other places.
I can't say enough about how wonderful my experience was at Flatbread Co. last night. I am seriously allergic to gluten, dairy, and eggs so pizza has not been a meal for me in years and it's the one food I miss the most since my diagnosis. I am pleased to say that the vegan, gluten free pizza I had last night was phenomenal - so much flavor! What impressed me most was the extra precautions they took to make sure there was no cross contamination. My pizza was specially prepared on foil in the brick oven to be certain it didn't touch the other pies. I have not seen such care and precaution taken at any other restaurant. The best part was when the manager, Myles, came over and told me that he was going to specially prepare me a vegan/gf dessert...and I had options! I went with the gingerbread whoopie pie with apple pie sorbet and wow...it was heavenly. While Avon is quite a trek from where I live in Glastonbury, I will definitely be coming back again and again. Thanks for a superb dining experience!
Great pizza and gluten free beer. Staff is knowledgeable.
I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant! Though it was difficult to find, and parking was awkward and difficult, the food was incredible! We did take out and I'm glad because the entire place was packed!! The integrity of their food is clear from the moment you read their menu and the GF crust was surprisingly moist and doughy, very much unlike MOST GF crusts out there. Highly recommend!
I visited while on vacation from the UK in September 2013. The restaurant was initially hard to find as it's inside the main entrance of the Eastern Slope Inn Resort, but when we did we were delighted. My gluten free pizza was delicious, and the staff were very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. I would recommend.
Their gluten free pizza crust is the best I've had anywhere. They were very careful during food preparation and prepared the GF pizza in a separate area from where their regular pizzas are made. They also use a separate pizza cutter for GF pizzas. For dessert, they offer a warm, GF brownie sundae. They use natural, local ingredients. I had no worries about cross contamination.
My husband had the regular cheese pizza which was swimming in grease. My salad was ok but very pricey by the time I added chicken and I left unsatisfied. It was more expensive than most meals we had out and the most disappointing. Staff was too busy to give good service.
The best gf pizza. Everything is fresh, local and tastes amazing! My daughter and I frequent Flatbread and everything from the salad to the dessert truly is spectacular. Live band Thursday nights and very family friendly. Highly recommend trying it!
The pizza dough is very mushy and seems uncooked in the middle. I have tried them several times hoping they would get better but it's the same each time I go. This was one of my favorite pizza places to go to before I was diagnosed.
Delicious GF pizza, salads, desserts, and even beer. GF knowledgable.
This was my favorite pizza before Celiac and GF. However GF pizza is not up to standard with a few other GF crusts available. Good, not great like other pizza. I would like it if they changed their crust. They are a great restaurant though. Very aware and avoid cross contamination.
It was the worst gluten free pizza I've had. Pizza crust was soggy & not crispy which you would think in a brick oven would be great. Plus the topping (just cheese & herbs) had no flavor at all. The cheese was barely melted. if you picked up a slice the entire topping would fall off. Disappointment since I paid $5 extra for mine. Total $15 for terrible pizza!
Pizza crust is ok, toppings are great! Salads and dressings are also very good. Gluten Free Whoopie Pies are the best! Atmosphere is great but it can be very loud at times. Call ahead or go on weekday evenings to avoid long waits.
Always a great experience with delicious food. Often a wait for a table, but I prefer the bar anyway. Great options for GF pizza, delicious, fresh ingredients, and the specials are always interesting and worth trying. Good selection of GF beer and cider. The staff is always friendly.
