They had three pizzas marked as certified gluten free from which to choose. Pizza came with a gluten free flag. Fun spot.

The team was very attentive to my questions about avoiding cross-contamination in the gluten free pizzas. They clearly explained their practices, separate ingredients and preparation station, and how they cooked gluten free pizzas in a tin to ensure that it was celiac safe. It was a success and I feel confident returning.

I have eaten here (Downtown SF location) a number of times because I work nearby. It has a dedicated GF pizza oven and they use a separate counter for prep. But stick to the GF items on the menu. If you customize your pizza (instead of sticking to those marked as GF on the menu) some of the toppings may come from the same line as the regular pizza. Just be clear with your server that your food must be GF and ask questions, especially if you are unsure. The staff are trained RE celiac, but people anywhere can make mistakes, or may not really understand the issues. The wait staff are nice and will return items to the kitchen when they make a mistake.

Celiac safe for only their Certified Gluten Free pizzas. There are five of them. They are pretty good and I’m happy to have an option.

Safe gf pizza. I wish they also had safe salad, but when I asked, she said only the pizza ordered from the gf certified menu can be guaranteed safe - no salads. Pizza was fine, nothing special. A safe (yet kind of boring) place to go when you’re in the city.

I debated whether or not to leave a review because I didn’t actually chance eating here. I was seated and they did have a “certified GF” pizza menu —although it’s only 3 options of pizza. They also have a cauliflower crust option too. The place was pretty dead as it was a little after 4pm. After more than 15 min the waitress came over and said, “have you been helped yet?” This was very absurd given she was clearly the ONLY waitress. There was one other table besides me dining there. I order the GF pizza. I tell her I have an extreme mushroom allergy. She says she’ll write it down. So things are looking up. Then, she says “would you like bread with your pizza”. Me: “um, I want the gluten free pizza” her: “yeah, but do you want the bread still? It comes with the pizza”. ....Me: umm is it gluten free? Her: no, it just comes with pizza. Me: no, I’m not ordering GF for the fun of it, so I don’t want bread. She walked off to go put the order in. At that point I was too scared of getting mushroomed or glutened so I asked her to cancel the order and I just left. After the first 1/2 hour I wasn’t willing to risk it. If the waitress is that clueless I can’t chance what is communicated to the kitchen.

UPDATE: they are certified

The manager courteously explained the process: the cooks will wash their hands, handle with gloves, and rice flour is used on all (including non GF) cooking pans to stick them.

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
