Very new to being gluten free and still have a lot of anxiety around eating out and risking being glutened. I feel truly safe eating here. They are very careful and their gluten free pizzas are delicious.

They have a dedicated area for GF pizza, which I appreciate, but I will have to say that after paying a premium price ($19) for a 10", the pizza was disappointing. I'll try again, but that's my first experience and impression.

Two positive experiences eating the gf Margherita pizza with two gf people. Kitchen manager came out to introduce himself. They're GIG trained and certified, and take good allergies very seriously. The pizza is very good. Chose the least amount of toppings to lessen the cross contam risk.

They have now been gig trained and I love the pizza they have great options. They also will make any pizza on gluten free crust but those ones have a chance of cross contamination. I wish they made the gig pizza for frozen that would be great to see in store.

I have been diagnosed with Celiacs Disease, so choosing to eat gluten-free isn't a trend for me but rather a medical necessity in order to avoid the negative effects on my intestine and consequent miserable symptoms associated with ingesting gluten. I had visited this restaurant as I was staying in the area for a work-related conference. I had thought this would be a great place as I was made aware of their gluten-free menu. I ordered two items off the menu (both of which were labelled 'gluten-free' and made the server aware of the importance of the items being gluten-free due to my celiacs disease. After eating both so-called 'gluten-free' items at the restaurant.... I immediately started to feel very ill as all my symptoms started to return. This was completely disappointing... Despite the meal I ordered being labeled 'gluten-free', it clearly was not (or had cross-contamination) and I ended up suffering for the next couple of days as a result. I will obviously not return to this restaurant, and will also caution others who require a gluten-free diet to stay away from this place as well.

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.

I have Been here multiple times to eat in and carry out and have never been sick in the past 5 years. Tonight husband and I went to eat in and I told them I have a severe gluten allergy. I watched them make the pizzas and they used all the same ingredients on my pizza as the regular pizzas including the same sauce/sauce spoon! I immediately notified our waiter who had the pizza remade and they used the same ingredients again but prepared the pizza to the side. We took my pizza to go and my husband now has a meal for tomorrow. Cross contamination is no longer understood at this location sadly.
