I decided to take my children to get pizza for Valentine's Day... I was extremely pleased with how I was treated!! The staff was very knowledgeable about celiac disorder and the pizza was delicious!!

I did not have any crossover symptkns and I will definitely be back to try some more of their gluten free items...

This is a restaurant I went to weekly, I stopped going after two incidents happened, back to back.

1. I advised my waiter I was celiac, went thru all the precautions- I was served a salad with croutons, I returned explaining that a new one would need to be made. I was then served a regular pizza, NOT gluten free, which I also returned, and I was offered no apology, and no refund (not that this is what I was looking for, but really? You tried to get me twice and I was a regular!).

2. I waited about a month, but my son really wanted pizza, so we went back. I went thru my celiac protocol, I ordered a salad and a pasta dish. The exact same thing happened - again with no apology, etc., except this time I ate the pasta and got very sick, my face and hands started swelling almost immediately. I paid my bill and left. I loved this restaruant, but I will not return and would advise any celiac to avoid, their management changed and they are not familiar with how to prepare and protect someone with celiac.

Items are not using gluten free protocol, wait staff is very unfamiliar or unconcerned with protecting from contamination.

Wife and I saw that this place had gluten free pasta and pizza so we decided to give it a try. We arrived on a Friday evening and it was super packed! Which is a good thing. We ordered to go. Portion, honestly, was a little small on both orders for $30. We’ve gotten double the portion at other places for less than $30. Flavor was really good though. I’d totally recommend this place. We did not try the pizza so can’t comment on that. Also, we were wondering if the portion was bigger if you wait and eat there (shouldn’t be but idk).

sick, sick, sick. :o(

They assured me that it was a carefully made gluten free pizza, so if I wasn't contaminated I guess that means I got food poisoning. Up all night sick after eating it.

And how did they get good reviews? The ingredients lacked taste and were not fresh, even the mushrooms were canned.

Wow! I had to ask the waitress to confirm my pizza was actually gluten free. Just .... wow! They were out of the chocolate GF cake. I'll try again next time. This crust was the closest I've had to gluten crust. Thick, chewy, and wonderful! Next time we visit San Antonio, this will be our first stop.

Love. Love. Love. Gluten free pasta and pizza on offer. Good service. Fantastic food. Cheap and cheerful as advertised. Soooooo happy this is only 5 miles from my house!!! Oh, and for the love of God, get the gluten free chocolate cake even if you are a normal non-celiac person. AMAZING.

GF pizza with chicken, sun dried tomatoes, spinach, and Gorgonzola is amazing! GF chocolate cake is a great way to top off the night (it's fresh so when they run out, they run out). Very friendly owner and staff. Huge clean sandbox for kids to play for hours while parents eat/drink wine. Outdoor patio is covered so it's not so hot.
