Unfortunately, their gluten free food is prepared and cooked right alongside all the gluten food. Not celiac friendly. They use commercial GF pizza crust, and prepare it on floured surfaces and right on the stone in a regular pizza oven. It's a shame, because this place makes great "regular" food.

Great mini torte chocolate brownies and rice pudding! They also have ricotta cheesecake, pizza, buns, and pie crust that we didn’t try. I’m not sure about their preparation safety, but I didn’t feel sick after.

LOVED this place! They had gluten free buns that actually tasted like bread!! They were very friendly and seemed very knowledgeable about which products were “safe”.

The pizza was AMAZING!! All their ingredients are fresh. The owner waited on us and because we were leaving town that day he let us have a fresh out of the oven cheesecake that was gluten free. Told us to just put it in fridge. Super helpful too. We will definitely be going back next year!

Pizza is not gf! Cooked on the same surface as gluten pizzas, so the only truly gf food were the sandwiches and mine was meh. I got some mini chocolate tortes but they ran out of filling so only half of mine had the topping.

This is not a celiac friendly restaurant. They serve gluten free, but do not have a dedicated oven or prepare it in a gluten free dedicated area. But, if you are just intolerant, the pizza is good, although mine came out with half of the crust burnt. I’m not talking about just a little overdone, it was black. Not being able to eat a good pizza for years, I really wanted to eat every bit of that crust. But the rest of it was really yummy! Oh, and that delicious looking gluten free ricotta cheesecake? You have to buy the entire cake! I’m the only gluten free person in my family, so why on earth would I buy a $19 cake for myself? I didn’t, I wish they would sell it by the slice.

I have not been able to have and enjoy pizza in several months! I have a very delicate stomach that cannot handle gluten, dairy and sugars whatsoever. This gf/df pizza was very uplifting and delicious!

Just called and was told pizzas go in the same oven as regular pies without any tray to avoid contamination. Eat at your own risk if you go, but I won't be.
