    Really good gluten free pizza. Only disappointment was no gluten free sausage or pepperoni. They are very conscientious about contamination.

    Great tasting pizza and fun place to eat. Only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 is because many of their toppings are not GF. For example the pepperoni is not GF. So just be warned to check topping GF list before building your pizza. Flagged as not celiac friendly because they did not appear to use different pizza trays or cooking space.

    Went to Uncle Maddio's after seeing it on this app! I have not had pizza since being gluten free. Wow! Not only was the pizza delicious, but the staff was friendly and knowledgeable about food allergies. Will be returning often!

    We stopped here on a road trip through the area. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about their policies for avoiding cross contamination. My celiac three year old loved her pizza. It was one of the best gf crusts we've tried. This place was very family friendly. We would stop here again if back in the area.

    This place is amazing. We don't live in Cola but have to be at the children's hospital often with my little boy. My husband has to run and find me gluten free food daily which is difficult. This pizza was amazing and they even sent me a free gluten free dessert when they learned we were in the hospital. Most importantly, it tasted great and I didn't get sick. They are very knowledgeable and careful. I will eat there again for sure!

    The gentleman who waited on us explained to me how they do things (they change their gloves, different pans, utensils, etc). When I told him I also have a dairy allergy he was able to let me know what else I couldn't have on my pizza. This is one of the few places I have been that I felt confident in the abilities of those who made my food. We live over an hour away but we will be back again!!

    New favorite pizza place!!!! They have very gluten educated and friendly staff, and their food is delicious. They have their menu marked with gluten free options- they have gluten free pizza dough, most of their salad dressings and pizza sauces are gluten free, they have gluten free meats marked, and they have a gluten free dessert! They even had a separate spinach bag so that there isn't cross-contamination. Also, they have a take and bake option, which is great.

    There are so many unknowledgeable restaurant staff out there when it comes to gluten free, but not at Uncle Maddio's Pizza. I was so impressed! Staff were very knowledgeable and explained to us every step they take to prevent cross-contamination with wheat. They are very thorough. The pizza was completely gluten free. Will definitely go back.

    Pizza was pretty good. Decent selection of toppings. I hesitate to call it celiac friendly since GF pizza was made right next to regular pizzas. They do use a separate container of sauce though.

    Love this place!!! Lots of gluten free options. Staff is highly knowledgable, accommodating, and friendly! Thank you!!! Be sure to alert them to any medical concerns regarding cross-contamination. They have a separate preparation area with safe ingredients. The only change that I would recommend would be clearly labeled take out boxes, though it is shown on the receipt, and they told us which boxes were the gluten free pizzas in our order. We will certainly be ordering again. Delicious! Highly recommended!!!

    I have celiac disease and am quite sensitive and have been here at least 10 times with never a problem. They take care to wash hands, use clean gloves and don't put your Pizza in with the gluten ones. Not only that but their pizzas are positively delish! Not super expensive either.

    Great place! My husband was diagnosed with Celiacs @ a month ago. We have gone to Maddios for a year, and have eaten gf, preference, off and on. Since diagnosis, responding "allergy" kicks them into alert and they take great care of my man. And now, they remember him every time too! Seriously. They see him coming and kick into gear. Our fav place since diagnosis.

Kids meal with gf pizza with one topping and a drink cost $5. Menu clearly marks what is gf. Great customer service and the pizza was relish! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Gloves are always replaced if specified allergen and counter tops are wiped they make sure to not place it in the oven next to any gluten filled items. I eat here often and have never had a reaction however keep in mind that the gluten filled pizza crust is made in the kitchen.

    What a treat to find this place while traveling up the East Coast. So many gluten free toppings to choose from. The gluten free crusts are kept separate and staff is very knowledgeable. We also like that the pizzas can all be considered Personal pan so you can get what you like and get the toppings you desire and not have to share with anyone.

    Good pizza, and they are very careful with GF. If you request GF they will ask you TWICE if it is "allergy or preference", and if you say "allergy", they have a special process that involves using gloves, taking the ingredients from special containers kept under the counter, and cleaning the grill. They ask you that question when you order GF in the cafeteria line, and they ask you again when you pay at the register, to make sure they got it right. When they bring it to your table, it arrives separately from any other pizza -- at least it has for us both times. My wife is the celiac and she says it tastes good. I can vouch for their non-GF pizza, it is good too.

    I read several reviews for this restaurant regarding their gluten free crust. It seemed as if there was something special about this crust, but in reality it is the standard crust from the Food Service that everyone uses. The pizza was okay, but it certainly wasn't worth the drive to get to this place because it was just an average experience.

    The food is delicious but the service is disappointing. When I alerted the staff to my allergy he rolled his eyes. On a previous visit they made sure to use new ingredients and avoid the ones that has cross contamination. He obviously did not want to make the extra effort to grab the fresh ingredients from behind the counter. He became short and rude. I apologized for the inconvenience but it didn't make a difference. I was obviously upset about how he was acting so other staff was very friendly to me. However, in the end he left ingredients off of my pizza and they put a cracker in my salad... After he made a huge deal about it being an inconvenience to make things gluten free. I left before I checked and now I can't eat half of my meal. I would not trust the gluten free status of this location.

    Awesome! My daughter has Celiac Disease and they are very diligent in preparing gluten free food. Here's the thing. Our food was excellent, but on this Friday night (Easter Weekend), five of their employees did not show up for work, and they only had the Manager and an outstanding pizza maker. These two have restored my hope in America. They were working like crazy and smiling the entire time. Seriously, I hope everyone who reads this will give them a visit. Great place, and I never give higher than three stars.
