Stopped here on the way to the Bowers Museum. Needed gluten free and, while there are only 4 choices, they are guaranteed to be safe. I had the GF pepperoni, it was great, and I felt fine. They were definitely understaffed so it took far longer than expected for lunch on a Thursday.

Certified GF pizzas, but a very limited menu. 4 pizzas can be made GF without cross contamination. There are a few salads and a salmon dish, but they can't guarantee it won't be CCed.

Very careful and well trained. Their gf pizzas are made in an entirely separate area. I used to get sick eating here but they've redone their training and are great now!

They have a dedicated GF menu but all items must be ordered without modifications to be considered GF. When I ordered I was asked if it was GF for health reasons (versus just a preference) and I said yes. The pizza was delivered by a manager and flagged with a GF toothpick. Slightly burnt around the edges but solid pizza. I’d worry it was normal thin crust if they didn’t take such precautions.

I ordered the gluten free pizza and it was, in fact, gluten free. I did not have any digestive issues. They are very aware of gluten and cross contamination. I will definitely go back.

This restaurant is always great for celiacs! I requested that the kitchen will change gloves/prevent cross contamination when making my pizza and the waiter told me that he was gonna tell the kitchen that even if I didn’t ask. The pizza was delicious too! Highly recommended
