Most CPK are great with allergy precautions . The manager here gave me a NON GF pizza. When I realized it wasn’t GF she didn’t take my allergy seriously and didn’t take responsibility for the awful mess up.

The manager came over to personally deliver my meal separately and assure me it’s 100% gluten free. The pepperoni pizza was delicious! Super fresh tasting and the crust was the best I’ve ever had.

Wanted a veggie pizza on GF crust but because it wasn’t on their limited “certified” GF pizza menu, waitress gave a hassle over ordering it. Ended up with a salad (old standy). It was OK but overpriced. Won’t be going back.

Awesome gluten free pizza. They offer pizzas made in a dedicated facility or can be made on the spot. Pizza always brought out by manager who is not handling food. They make a very good effort and I've never had a problem despite being very sensitive

Great experience! When I asked for the gf menu they even asked if I had celiac. They prepare and cook the gluten free pizzas in a separate part of the kitchen. I got the BBQ chicken pizza which was amazing and the crust was one of the best gf crusts I've had so far.

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

I was so hesitant to try this restaurant because the reviews are not very good, and my daughter is a VERY sensitive Celiac. Finally, I decided to roll the dice and give it a try. Five stars!!! First of all, the staff was VERY kind and happily dealt with all of my obsessive questioning about how the pizza was prepared. Second, they actually had a kids’ portion of gf pizza! So we only paid about $7 for a normal portion instead of paying $35 for a huge pizza that my young daughter can’t possibly finish. Third, my daughter finished every bite of her pepperoni pizza and loved it. Fourth, and most importantly, she did not get sick! Hooray!!!

They have several pizza options for gluten allergies. I let the waitress know that I have a gluten allergy. They brought my food out separately and there was a stick in my pizza that said “gluten allergy”.

Waitress was knowledgeable about GF pizzas/options and took the allergy seriously. Both GF kids cheese pizza and the California Cobb salad were very good— no belly aches or sickness afterwards. Double checked on GF salad dressings for me, as well. Appreciated the diligence and we will return!
