    The server specifically suggested that the pizza wasn't 100% celiac safe. Had to risk it and didn't react afterwards. Pizza was good but small.

    I have eaten the GF pizza there twice with no reaction. I like their food and will return. I wish they had GF beer.

    Did not realize they are not celiac friendly and got sick. Great pizza if you just have an allergy though!

    Give them 3 stars for trying to accommodate but BE CAREFUL if you have allergy or intolerance to gluten because there is some serious cross contamination. On all three occasions I tried the gf pizza I had bad reactions that night or the following morning. Lesson learned. After notifying them they have since changed the online menu to say that you shouldn't eat here if you have gf allergy or celiac.

    Very good, but VERY oily. The entire crust was laden with oil which made it sit heavily after eating, but it did taste good.

    excellent tasting pizza! so unique. unfortunately severe reaction...buyer beware. in their defense they do mention that they cannot guarantee cc and people with celiac disease are taking a risk.

    They gave me a # to put in front of me so they could bring my pizza. The waitress came so quickly (wasn't too busy) put down my pizza and said tortellini pizza and grabbed my #and went off. No chance for me to tell her it was wrong. Finally got another waitress and she was confused why I ordered GF pizza with tortellini. I told her I did have a wheat allergy and knew I couldn't eat tortellini so I would never order it. She made another one. I thought it tasted pretty good but after eating it I got sick. Cross contamination.

    Finally GF pizza done right!!! Even tasted great warmed over!! I told them I had a food allergy and they took precaution to clean the area they were making my pizza on. I did not get sick and I can't have any cross contamination. I will get very sick. The crust was thin, crunchy and buttery! I had the mashed potato and bacon. It was great! Will go back!! Definitely a better experience here then there Comm Ave location!!

    Sad face. Cross contamination risk for those with celiac.

    Ate here a few times without incident, and it was tasty, great topping combos. But I got a terrible reaction the last time (when ordering delivery from the BU location). I skip Otto for Stone Hearth Allston now, and haven't had a reaction so far. They have better kitchen prep practices by far.

    Not celiac friendly. The pizza I got wasn't all that great either.

    I love their pizza but it's not a gluten free environment. Not safe for allergies or celiac I'm sure but if you can tolerate cross contamination it is so worth it. Mashed potatoes pizza omg

    I called ahead to check if they could accommodate a celiac diet and was very clear with the waitress about the diet but I still got very sick. Not for celiacs.

    Pre-celiac I loved otto's. I saw the gluten free option and asked...the said the kitchen is full of flour there is now way it is safe for celiacs. I give them kudos for letting people know!

    I saw the disclaimer for celiacs so I called ahead to see whether they could try to keep everything as separate as possible - the manager said they could and would keep it separate. When I placed my order I asked the waitress twice to make sure everything was separate. The food tasted great but I felt pretty sick after. As the menu says Ottos is not suitable for celiacs.

    They do not have a separate prep station for their gluten free pizzas. If you have celiacs I would not recommend getting their gluten free pizza because of cross contamination. Staff did point this out and they state it online.

    I ordered 2 gf pizzas a few weeks ago. One had chicken and roasted pears with fontina. The other had mushrooms and bacon. The toppings and flavor were phenomenal. The crust was just ok. The usual for gf pizza crust. But sick, dear lord!! I would NEVER order again. EVER. Looking back, I wonder if they know what gluten free actually means...

    They have great pizza! But, unfortunately even their GF is not safe for celiac. They actually told me that! Kudos to otto's for the warning.

    LOVE this pizza! Carry-out only but so worth it and it stays hot til you get home! So many topping choices. The white bean spinach and basil is a huge hit! Their crust is the best we have ever had!

    I think the GF crust is awesome - but you have to be into thin-crust pizza. If you are, it's delicious! Flavorful and crispy. They have a warning on the menu for celiacs about possible cross contamination, but I have yet to find a place that offers both GF and regular pizza and doesn't throw out such a disclaimer. I have celiac and had no issues, but it's something to consider. So good!

    Not celiac friendly. Got sick after eating here -- and GF crust is similar to what you find in frozen food section of the grocery store.

    Simply the best gluten free pizza, anywhere. We've traveled from Rome to California and tried it everywhere. None measured up to Otto's Margherita or 4 Cheese. Outstanding!

    The store has a sign at the register that suggests that the pizza is not safe for celiacs. Pizza was small and I did feel slightly ill afterwards.
