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.
Amazing, they know what they are doing. Go there if you want great servers very knowledgeable about food allergies
Delicious pizza with tons of GF toppings. Staff is trained about cross-contamination. Great lunch spot close to campus.
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!!
Had a horrible experience with gluten free pizza about 5 years ago so I was taking a risk by going here but their pizza was delicious!! really wish I had known about this place sooner!
Our favorite pizza place in Columbia. They are very careful to provide gluten free pizza and they do everything right on front of you (which is a plus in my book).
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.
The pizza here is great. We ordered 3 different pizzas and did not have any reaction by our one family member that is Celiac. Just be sure to let the staff know and they can help you out.
What a great find. All the reviews were spot on. tried the bbq chicken pizza and it was delicious. My non GF family loved the food too. The staff was friendly and so courteous. Wish there was one in PA
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.
The staff was so knowledgeable and explained/showed me every step they take to prevent cross contamination. The pizza was amazing and service was wonderful. Will definitely be back, highly recommend!
Yummy! Loved the BBQ chicken pizza
Best gluten free pizza crust in town! Staff is very knowledgable about gluten free toppings as well. You can even have a "take and bake" pizza prepared. We will definitely be back.
great pizza!! best pizza gluten free pizza around. they ensure for no cross contamination. my husband loves the regular pizza too. great price, not over priced for the gf!
careful and knowledgeable staff and very welcoming
Great GF pizza. Staff used separate containers of toppings. Even have a GF dessert option.
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.
Fantastic pizza! And I mean the gluten free pizza is fantastic!! They ask if gluten free is an allergy or a preference and then proceed with all new ingredients and gloves and work station. They get it!! The flavors of the pizza are fantastic and they have a smaller size gf pizza so that my non celiac hubby can get what he wants too. Best staff Ever and delicious food. We are here two days in a row and will be back!!
They always have a problem with using new sauce and cheese
I have celiac disease and this restaurant was a great find. The staff was professional and knowledgeable. I had a delicious veggie pizza on a gluten free crust and a gluten free Greek salad. Both were incredibly delicious! My server asked if I needed to have gluten free and I said that I did. She immediately went and changed her gloves and took the vegetables that went on my pizza from a different place she also went into the back and got my salad from a different place. I highly recommend this restaurant. I live in Myrtle Beach South Carolina and I wish we had an uncle maddio's by me. I will be making trips to Charleston just for their food.
This location went above and beyond in trying to assure that my child's food was gluten free and suffered no cross contamination. In fact, they went to measureses beyond any restaurant I have encountered in the 2 yrs of GF dining. Counters cleaned, gloves changed, ingredients reviewed, prep utensils changed, fresh closed non cross contaminated ingredients retrieved from the fridge. Tasty safe pizza! Thank you, what a great staff!
Absolutely love this place!! Perfect lunch spot for celiacs or anyone with a gluten intolerance. They get separate toppings, clean down the counter, change gloves, and many more protocols to prevent cross contamination once you say gluten free. Their menu is clearly marked, and the crust is great!! The ingredients taste super fresh! They are consistent and every person who has helped me has been trained to a t.
Food was good and staff was helpful. This is like Chipotle, only it is pizza rather than Mexican. From what I was told this is a franchise out of ATL. It was pricier than Pie Five, which is a competing franchise in this space. @ Uncle Maddio's you get three toppings at no charge and then it is $.50 per topping.
Our pizzas were incredible, not to mention affordable. The staff was amazing and very helpful. They went out of their way to assure there was no cross contamination, and that our allergies were taken seriously. We are HUGE fans. What a relief to have a place to go and not worry about getting sick. Great atmosphere and staff. We will certainly be back soon!
Delicious pizza and no celiac reaction. Great find!
We were passing through the area over the Thanksgiving weekend and were feeling pretty "hangry." Traveling with gluten sensitivity is always so stressful! Grabbed a couple of Uncle Maddio's GF pizzas and and felt great! Even our non-GF daughter loved them! Looks to be our new "go-to" stop when around Cranberry.
They use completely different ingredients and change their plastic gloves for anyone who wants gluten free pizza. They can also make great gluten free pizza with goat cheese if you ask. We eat here regularly and never have a problem. Great pizza and personable staff.
Not only do they have GF pizza, they take it really seriously. Cleaned the prep area, used different topping containers from the back, server changed his gloves. They were not playing. It was awesome. And I was not glutened so it worked...and now I know I can have pizza again every now & then. Pretty cool! Ps - the guy there is the one whole told me about this app! Another win!
These folks are incredible! They scrape and clean the working surfaces before preparing the GF pizza. And, they pull the toppings from a non-contaminated area. When I commented about the thoroughness of their process, the young man in the prep area said, "It's because we care."
Although the effort for gluten free is there, this place does not know what it means for cross contamination. They use the same sauce spoons for all the pizzas and so you watch them touch wheat dough and then use the same one with the same sauce on the gluten free one. All the sides are just laid out and they are not fresh. I understand that to make the food process faster they do it this way, but all the sides were getting into one another. It was messy. For someone who has to be very careful about what they eat (for me I am gluten and dairy free) this is not the place for them. If gluten free is just preference then you will probable be fine. They are short staffed so everyone was stressed and really could not put effort into making the food right. This place was dirty because everyone was so busy trying to keep up with orders. The salad making station was just as messy as the side station. The effort was there, with keeping the allergy gluten free crust in a different place, that was nice. And they did switch gloves so that was good too. This place just isn't there yet with their food prep places. I would suggest to them, to hire more people to keep up with the business and to really make sure that things are being cleaned up. Also to have the gluten free pizzas made in a whole different and separate station. So all your sauces and spoons are separate and the sides what you just touched stuff with wheat hands don't come into contact with the gluten free options.
The pizza is good but you have to carefully watch them. I watched them use the same spoon on my pizza as they used to spread toppings on the wheat pizza. We went back over to ask them to do a new pizza. I think the girl making the pizza was new, the others seemed to understand immediately when we asked. I didn't get sick (since they made a new one) but won't feel comfortable here unless I watch the whole process to ensure mistakes aren't made.
Super tasty crust, crispy and delicious! Ordered the BBQ special pizza, which was amazing. They wiped the counters down and asked if this was for an allergy or preference. I have severe Celiac disease and had no issues at all. It was even good reheated.
