    If you have Celiac disease, do not go here. My daughter has Celiac, and was participating in a soccer tournament in the Richmond area March 15-17. After her game, we went in search of something gluten free. She was in the mood for pizza, and Fresca came up on google. When we went in, the place smelled great and really got us hungry. My daughter ordered a 3 or 4 cheese gluten free pizza, and the girl behind the counter said OK - waiting for my order. As I have learned, I held up and told the young lady that my daughter has gluten allergies, and that the gluten free pizza she ordered was not just a preference. At this point, the girl said, well "there is a lot of flour in here, and it does get into the air". I had never heard this before, so I asked, what about the preparation areas. To which she responded, "well, since there is so much flour in the air, we can't guarantee the surfaces are clean. If you are going to get sick from gluten, we can't guarantee the pizza will be gluten free." ????? At this point, as hungry as we were - we obviously left. Why does Fresca advertise that they are gluten free??? Why was the girl behind the counter going to take our gluten free order, until I mentioned that my daughter couldn't have gluten in her food??? It appears she would have gladly served my daughter a contaminated "gluten free" meal, accepted the money, without understanding what it could do her. From my experience, Fresca cannot guarantee your food will be gluten free. If you have Celiac Disease - do not dine at Fresca!!!
