    Some of the best pizza I have ever had in my life, and definitely the best this side of Naples! The GF crust is yeasty and chewy, just like a classic crust, but without the unfortunate side effect of making me sick. I could've sworn it was wheat! I'm always happy and very full when I leave. Can't recommend enough.

    The best gluten free pizza I have ever had. I made my husband taste it to make sure it tasted different than his. The restaurant was very clean and they were very careful. I did not get sick.

    Hands down the best gluten free pizza I've ever had. They also served us gluten-free bread with our salad and homemade truffle burrata.

    Ate the pizza here w my daughter. No reactions. Tested it w my Nima Sensor and it came back GF. One of the best gf pizzas I have had. Based on other reviews I would say to make sure you are always clear when you order. Authentic Italian/Naples style.

    Something goes wrong. It ridiculous to pay 70 dollars for a dinner and get contaminated in a place that tells that there are separated kitchens and prepared staff. My wife stays really bad now, and the symptoms are 100% like she enters in contact with gluten, this is doubtless. We asked for two pizzas, and one of the two arrived in a wood instead of in a plate. When we ask if the wood was used only for gluten-free pizzas the busboy tells us that wasn't, and he seems not knowledgeable about the cross contamination (he tell us that, if we want, he can move the pizza to a normal plate). We eat really paranoid, that's not absolutely fair in a person's birthday, and after that the start to feel very bad and we can do nothing more than going home. Now she feels horrible like she has bitten a bread. 70 dollars thrown in the garbage. The pizza dough was pretty good, but the ingredients were nothing special.

    Amazing! I've had their regular pizza before I learned that I was gluten intolerant, so I have a great comparison to know that their GF pizza tastes almost exactly the same. Was ordering takeout with a friend and mentioned to the manager I needed a GF pizza, she immediately recommended her favorites and without asking made both our dessert and salad bread GF as well! I'm used to having to skip out on the other dishes and only eat what I specifically ordered as GF but I didn't have to worry about it. The dessert (essentially fried dough sticks with Nutella) was AMAZING and reminded me that I can, in fact, do this whole GF thing while still indulging my sweet tooth from time to time.

    While the gf pizza crust was good, the rest of our experience was full of disappointments. Be warned, this place has nothing but pizza and calzone, you can't customize your pie - only ordering from pricey specialty pies ...and they don't have Parmesan cheese. All of this information was delivered in non-apologetic style and we left after our meal I satisfied and $110 poorer for me and three boys. Also, my marguerite pizza was an overpriced cheese pizza with three tiny leaves of basil in the middle....not a very good marguerite in my opinion.

    Wow!! Gf pizza crust is terrific, but the *fried* gf pizza crust (house special montanara starita) is indistinguishable from regular crust!!! Also, entire staff knows how to handle gf. When the busboy asked if we wanted our leftovers wrapped up, I said yes and started to ask for separate boxes, and the busboy (not our waiter, but the busboy!) said, yes, I know that one is gf. Terrific experience.

    Best pizza I have ever eaten! And it was Gluten Free! I had The Butcher which is 4 different types of meat. It was heaven ! Lovely place. A bit expensive but that's typical for NY standards. I paid 25 for my pizza.. Prices ranged from 17-26 I believe. It was worth EVERY penny.

    We are visiting New York City and were looking for a gluten free pizza place as my sister had already eaten gluten pizza. We ordered from this place and they were very knowledgable. When we received the pizza, the crust didn't even look like it was gluten free. It tastes just like regular crust even though it was gluten free. Best pizza I have ever had and highly recommend this place. Also, it is very good if you have celiac disease. I visited again this past weekend and went two days in a row. I was very satisfied and the pizzas were delicious once again. They have a whole swept are kitchen and oven just for the gf pizza!

    Went there this past weekend with my family. Ordered two gf pies for my wife and I and one non gf for our kids. Kids loved it. My wife and I loved ours as well, especially the one with proccuito, mushrooms and truffle oil. Best gf pizza we have ever had. Everything was fresh. Extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff. We'll definitely be back next time we're in the city.

    Excellent Restaurant!!! They have delicious GF pizza made in a dedicated Gf oven. Some of their GF pizza options uses fried dough (very tasty) - they use a dedicated fryer for their GF dough. The pizza was among some of the best GF pizza I've ever had!

    Most amazing gluten free pizza you will ever have. I first ordered delivery, and had to come consult this website to see if my pizza was actually gluten free because I couldn't believe it. The crust is so fluffy and soft (not at all the hard/cardboard GF style you get used to). They have many options for gluten free as well, which is a huge plus!

    Probably the best gf pizza I've had! The restaurant is small, crowded, noisy and the staff work really hard. It's a fun atmosphere but not slow and relaxed. They have a gf menu and a totally separate prep area for their gf pizzas. The restaurant is a bit off of Times Square and I only found it because of find me GFree. They don't take reservations. The gf pizza crust is made of soy, rice and potato flours. I highly recommend you check this place out. They generally offer fried dough with Nutella for dessert and one other option but they were sold out tonight.

    Did I just eat the best pizza ever? Possibly! I think the only way to be sure is to put this side by side with Pala and do a true taste test. Either way, this is by far the best GF pizza in midtown, possibly NYC and maybe the best in the world.

    We started with the gluten free Montanarine (their lightly fried dough topped with their sauce). Incredible! For main course we enjoyed the Montanara Starita and Margherita. Equally incredible! We ended up ordering a Margherita with Salami as well. Best pizza we have ever had, even before going gluten free! Keste was our favorite before, but now it's Don Antonio!
