    Excellent place to eat. Cleaned the surface before prepping my pizza and kept the toppings in separate containers. Tons of topping choices. Plus, great taste! My family loved the regular pizza too. And...not extra pricey! Will eat here again!

    Very good pizza! That being said, this location, after asking if your dietary needs are allergy or preference, the staff will further press you for more details. As a diagnosed Celiac sufferer for many years, I understand the importance of these details, and I have an such an appreciation for it. However, I feel berated by the interrogation they put you through. There's often a long line and you might as well announce with a megaphone your medical conditions after the line of questioning they impose. The corporate office needs to train the staff to just go ahead and take all the appropriate precautions when someone says yes to the allergy question and no to it just being a matter of preference. I appreciate the diligence they're trying to put forth, but not everyone will feel comfortable putting the nuanced details of their medical diagnoses on display just to order a pizza when they've already expressed they need it to be made free of any cross-contamination.

    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!!!

    Gluten free friendly, the staff seemed knowledgable but there was a disclaimer on the bottom of the menu that Uncle Maddios was not recommended for celiacs. The sauce was kind of bland. Only 3 meats that were gluten free; chicken, steak, jerk chicken. OK, but I'm not sure I'll return again due to the disclaimer and limited meat options.

    Staff very accommodating & knowledgeable .. Best gfree crust in the omaha area!! They changed gloves & wiped down area extra well prior to making my pizza.. They also pulled fresh toppings from cooler to avoid cross continuation.. I asked for my crust to be cooked a bit longer to eliminate the soggy crust that sometimes occurs with rice based crusts & it turned out flipping fantastic!! Finally found my go to pizza place.. Thumbs up guys great service & delicious food ❤️

    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!

    Gluten free menu including pizza and salads. A lot of unique pizza toppings, and the place has you order and watch your pizza being made, so you can clearly see problems if they're going to happen.Employees knew about GF, changed gloves, notified all people behind the counter, and pulled dough and ingredients from the non-contaminated cooler. Cooked on a 2nd rack which appeared to be for GF only. They were extremely careful, well trained, and knowledgeable.Food was delicious.

    GF Pizza and GF breadsticks are unbelievably delicious! Care is taken to share GF items and items they cannot "guarantee" because of distributor. The service is fantastic and the prices are phenomenally reasonable. Have paid 3 times the price at Dominos for a mediocre pizza. This has just become a favorite and regular stop on our way North to the mountains.

    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!!

    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.

    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+++!!

    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.

    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.
