    I had the thin rice crust pizza and it was great! I've resolved that I will never have a pizza experience like I did before I had to go gf so my expectations are different. I couldn't eat the cheese bc I'm also dairy free, so I loaded up with good toppings. I had sausage, garlic, spinach, black olives and mushrooms. It was literally the best gf pizza I've had since eating gf. Obviously, pizza with no cheese is lacking so I got some olive oil, sprinkled salt in it and dipped my pizza in and it was perfect! This restaurant is also highly recommend def by locals. The non-gf pizza is incredible says my pizza deprived husband! It is made deep dish and the sauce is on top of the impossibly long and tantalizing cheese. They may make the gf pizza like this too, I just don't know since I can't have dairy.

    First of all, the rumors are true! They indeed WILL bring you gf bread when you tell them you are gf. That, to me, was such a huge thing!! In my FIVE years of gluten intolerance I have never experienced that! Our waitress was WONDERFUL, very patient and knowledgeable and willing to ask the kitchen a million things. Her name is Vera. Both these things would have been great alone but I had the penne bolognese and it blew my mind away!!!!! IT WAS TEN DOLLARS and there was so much that I have dinner for tonight. Since when does that happen when you eat gf at a restaurant!? They have a dedicated frier, gf buns for burgers or Chicken sandwiches, the aforementioned bread, a chocolate moose I couldn't enjoy bc it was to dairy free, and 2 or 3 pasta options. It was maybe the best gf dining experience I've had. This is a MUST if you are in Schaumburg or Chicago.
