Great option for a quick safe gf pizza. You walk through line as they make your pizza so you are actually watching the whole process. Server changed his gloves, got a gf crust from a safe area, topped with their homemade gf sauce. I picked chicken, onion and banana peppers which were all retrieved from a fresh covered container. The thin crispy pizza was just what I was expecting. I'm pretty sensitive and had no reaction.
Was knowledgable about gluten. They have separate pizza that are gluten free and they get all there toppings from under the cabinet so not to cross contaminate.
In theory, their GF pizza plan might work, but in reality, the are just to many chances of cross contamination. They use the same pizza pans the regular crusts are baked on and only scrape them instead of scrubbing them or having a separate GF pan. The guy slicing the pizza uses the same tray and blade on every pizza. He has no way of knowing if it's GF unless he looks at the order tag. I'd recommend this place for people with gluten intolerance, but not Celiacs. The pizzas are delicious (but not worth the risk).
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.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place! If you ask for Gluten Free, specify if it needs to be "allergy" or "preference". They WILL gladly take it seriously, and their GF pizzas are SO excellent! Can't say enough, I'm very glad I live near this restaurant!!!
Best gluten free pizza I've had yet, and a very well trained and pleasant staff. When we told them we needed our food to be gluten free for allergy reasons (which seems to be the phrasing most likely to be understood by restaurants), the employee immediately changed his gloves, and explained to us about how everyone on the line would be using fresh ingredients and separate utensils to keep our pizza safe for us. What a pleasure that was! And the pizza was so good, with a thin crust that actually crunched, and really fresh tasting toppings, including the option of vegan cheese. If I lived here, I would absolutely be a regular.
These folks really understand gluten-free! Besides a darned good crust, he put on new gloves to make the pizza. He knew which toppings we could eat. We tried to add sausage and he told us it wasn't GF. They even left the little breadstick off of the side salad that went with the GF pie. We arrived at 6:50 on a beautiful Friday evening, and we were sitting in a booth eating by 7:10. AAA+++!!
I really wanted to love this place. We took our kids in while visiting Atlanta. It was awesome that they had gluten free kid sizes. However, the gentleman who was preparing our pizza left much to be desired. He didn't seem at all consistent in the proportions he used from pizza to pizza. It seemed like he used the same amount of toppings on the extra-large pizza as he did on the small pizza. The sauce was spread on really un-evenly (there wasn't even really a layer of sauce on 40% of it), and when our pizzas came out they were so lumpy in spots that those spots were burned black & crisp. The people working didn't seem interested in their customers either. The un-burnt crust itself was good, and the guy did ask if gluten free was allergy or preference. When I told him it was allergy for me he changed his gloves. Maybe they just had an off-day for us.
Although they changed their gloves for me, I had some concerns about cross-contamination (shared toppings, no dedicated prep area). Also, when I ordered gluten-free, the server asked, "Is that because of an intolerance, or a choice?" Which to me sounds like code for "How careful do we need to be?" Not to mention that it's really none of their business and it shouldn't matter to them. The pizza was good, but I have mixed feelings about going back.
I was so surprised when the server asked if I had a preference or an allergy when I ordered. When I stated allergy, she immediately changed her gloves and got my toppings from new containers. What a surprise! if I lived in the Tallahassee area, I would visit here very frequently.
Delicious gluten free pizza crust!
careful and knowledgeable staff and very welcoming
Gluten free menu. Staff well educated. Gluten free crust is pre-made. Does not have a dedicated gluten free area.
Very good GF crust and knowledgable staff! They were extremely kind and took the time to answer all my questions. Separate utensils are used and I felt very confident that my pizza would be prepared in a safe way. My husband also loved his non gf pizza! We'll be coming back. :)
do not have a gluten free area we have had problems with contamination. we no longer eat there.
GF pizza was awesome! Super crispy crust and tasty toppings. Lots of good cheese!
