knowledgeable servers but the pizza crust was a bit soft for my preference. this is due to putting the pizza on a pan in the wood-fired oven instead of directly in with gluten-pizzas.
Unfortunately another "pizza specialty restaurant" that uses a frozen gluten free crust and charges an additional $3 for it. The pizza arrived cold in the center. Over priced.
I was so disappointed. The food was really good, but it made me sick! I don't usually get sick right away, so I ate the leftovers to be sure. I got sick again :( If you aren't very sensitive, the food tastes good.
I had been starving for pizza since going gluten free and I was very pleased with the pizza here.
Food? 4/5 stars. Great food - delicious gf crust. Also had the edamame which was sadly over cooked so much that some pods were close to mush.. Otherwise, 5/5 if it weren't for the edamame being over cooked. Service? 3/5. Slow, non-attentive service when it was not busy. We stood waiting to be seated for quite awhile before we figured it must have been a seat yourself restaurant (since there was no sign and we were not acknowledged by anyone). It wasn't. we were not acknowledged until quite some time after we sat down. Sat for quite some time before receiving our appetizer.. No wonder it was close to mush. Sat without drinks which were never refilled. We never were asked how our food was. Even getting our bill and receiving our card after took longer than it should have. The food was worth it even with the service.
Really nice place. Friendly wait staff and no problems ordering gf foods items already listed as gf on menu.
Knowledgeable kitchen staff and great gluten free crust, had the goat cheese pizza with sausage and the burrata basil pesto, amazing!
They note gluten-free on their menu and the server that we had seemed educated. They offer plenty of things that are GF including pizza, but we were too full to eat it! I would recommend this as a safe place to eat in SD that isn't some massive chain (it's a local chain).
Good thin crust pizza. Numerous options for toppings, all very good. Staff was knowledgeable and professional and most importantly, no cross contamination.
Good pizza and wine!
Crust was decent and they had a dedicated menu with lots of topping options for their pizza, instead of the few that most places have. They even had a vegan cheese option for those who are dairy free. I enjoyed it
I liked my pizza and my friends liked their food very much. We enjoyed the patio area on a quiet Sunday evening. Waitress was nice and helpful in telling me which pizzas to avoid (Thai, for example). But nearly all can be done on a gluten free thin crispy crust... For an extra $4! Seems a little high, but it was tasty. I would've never known it was gluten free! I had goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes & pine nuts which was mild but very good. Not bland like some other pizzas. Seems there's only one size of pizza which is enough for two. I'll be enjoying my leftovers tomorrow! They brew their iced tea (no mix) but not the lemonade so I skipped that. I think they can handle celiac needs for the most part. I try to avoid peak times at any restaurant and that usually helps.
I really like Sammys and have been to three locations. All are consistent with service and good food. Wish they would use the gf pizza crust for hummus plate. I'm giving 5 stars bc safe. They did forget the pepperoni in the pizza, and steak was slightly overdone. But overall very good.
Worth the trip. Great GF pizza for a tourist from Texas. Thanks.
Knowledgeable staff, lots of GF choices, and awesome pizza. Very nice, yet casual, decor. I highly recommend putting this on your list!
There were a lot of GF choices clearly labeled. Pizza was good and service was great.
Have eaten here DOZENS of times and never gotten sick. LOVE this place!! Incredible staff, very knowledgeable regrading gluten-free and keeping it safe for Celiacs. Definitely recommend!
Really good pizza. The crust is better than most I've tried
Really delicious gluten-free pizza crust. It's corn-free too (if you're like me and also allergic to corn). Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Great place.
They have a ton of gluten free options. I heard once that the owner's daughter is gluten intolerant so he changed the menu for her. (great little story and I hope it's true!) their food is wonderful, and all the servers I've ever had are lovely and pleasant. Highly recommend.
Great GF pizza. Vegan cheese available too. Lots of GF options and great, helpful staff!!!
Lots of GF choices and very clearly marked in menu (and togo menu!) - pizzas are great. The penne pasta and Greek salad were good. They also have huge portions (except the pizza) If ur looking for a yummy drink - don't get the watermelon or cucumber coolers, they were both not sweet.
This place is great. I told our waitress up front when ordering I was GF and requested that they are aware to not cross contaminate. I dont do dairy either so she helped me with choices to accommodate my allergies. The manager came over after order was placed to explain that they had specialty pizzas in oven so mine would go with theirs and would come out before they started rest of the order.(which was no bother) Pizza was delicious, Gf fresh veggie (no mozzarella) was delicious. it felt great to eat out. No issues afterwards :)) They cared and went to great lengths to ensure proper handling. This is definitely a great restaurant for us!
The GF Kobe beef chill is outstanding & pizza is great too
My son had the gluten free pepperoni kids pizza and the server was great. What she didn't know, she immediately went to find out for us and was so friendly and willing to help. She was very nice as we had to ask a lot of questions due to the many allergies my son has including wheat.
Got the gluten free pizza. Delicious! Didn't get sick afterword either
They have very good gluten free pizza! I would definitely go back again.
Tried the New York style gluten free pizza. While it tasted better than the average gluten free pizza (which isn't saying much), I believe it is because the crust was super thin and the taste was dominated by the numerous toppings that comes with the New York style. In general, not bad but $17.28 (13 for the pizza +3 for the crust +tax) for what was at most a 10" pizza is very expensive. This doesn't include any tips or drinks. That said, there is a gluten free menu and the taste/environment seemed pleasant.
