    yesterday

    I have eaten here and ordered take out many times, it is our go to pizza place. Last night was the first time that I had an issue. I ordered the gluten free vegetable pizza. When it was delivered the crust looked a little different but I thought it was just well done. When I took a bite, it tasted different so I used my Nima to test it. Gluten found! :( So I called the restaurant and spoke to the manager, he was very apologetic and offered to send me another. Because I have had such good experiences here I figured why not get another and I’ll just test that one too. The second pizza arrived, and automatically I noticed a difference in the crust, it looked lighter the way it usually does. I tested it just to be on the safe side, gluten free :) ! The manager called back to check on my order. He apologized again. He also mentioned that they have a separate kitchen space for their gluten free pizza and use a separate oven. The only gluten free items that are not celiac safe are the fried ones, make sure you tell them that you have celiac because they will explain which gluten free items are safe. I’ve eaten the pizza dozens of times and it’s the best gluten free pizza I’ve ever had! This was the first issue I had so I would still recommend it.

    I read the reviews and had to try because they all said best gluten free pizza crust ever and let me tell you that is the BEST gluten free pizza crust I’ve ever had. Tasted like real pizza. And they’re very allergy aware. Must try!!!!

    The best gluten free pizza we’ve ever had. They hand make their gluten free dough and it’s incredible. It makes us feel like we’re back in Italy.

    We stopped in for a gluten free pizza today based on the positive reviews posted. I am a very sensitive celiac. I will say it was a great tasting pizza but unfortunately I was glutened. I’m not sure if it was cross contamination or a reaction to ingredients but if you’re a sensitive celiac I would advise against this place.

    Delicious GF pizza! They also have vegetarian and vegan options as well. We got there as they opened and were able to be seated right away but it was packed by the time we left so expect to wait a bit.

    The upside: hostess lovely. Gluten free pizza DELICIOUS. Had gf pizza dough w/Nutella for dessert/ excellent. Downside: won’t seat you until entire party is present...loud and crowded are understatements. We were seated closest to bar... and one guy kept banging coffee grinds, and steamed milk container (for cappuccinos) on counter... every 5 seconds for entire lunch... SO LOUD...our heads were splitting by meals end. Food would probably get me to go back- but only if seated in back of restaurant.

    OMG - I would never have guessed this was gluten free pizza crust!! I'm pretty sure it was though, as it looked different from my dining companion and the other table that was right next to us (and I mean about 10 inches from us!). Restaurant was super busy, but we only waited about 10 minutes for a table and then our service was SUPER fast. Pricy for a pizza dinner ($65 for two of us including only one cocktail) but worth it to get really fantastic pizza - and a little bit leftover for breakfast :0)

    This WAS my FAVORITE gluten free pizza, EVER! You can be in and out of this place quickly and the service is also fantastic. However, just read the review below mine about the change in their dough. Not cool! I won't be returning unfortunately.

    Do not eat here if you have celiac disease. They recently switched from soy to “gluten free wheat starch” as their primary ingredient for gf pizza. Very unfortunate as I used to LOVE their actual-gf pizza.

    BEST gluten free pizza crust we’ve ever had. They continue to perfect it. No one would EVER guess it’s gluten free. Great atmosphere and service. They handle GF in a separate area of the kitchen.

    Pizzas were delicious. There is a review complaining about the price. Yes it’s expensive but the personal pizzas are HUGE they can easily be shared by two people. The staff was amazing. We went on a Friday night and they don’t take reservations. They told us they’d be on a wait by 6:30 and they weren’t lying, we got the last table and after that they stayed on a wait. Place is super small, we were practically having dinner with the table next to us. Not sure it’s safe because the flour is made of gluten free wheat starch. I did have a reaction but it wasn’t intestinal like it often is with a gluten reaction. It was the best pizza I’ve had in a really long time.

    Dined on 6 October 2017 for dinner. Had gluten-free potato croquet and pizza -- no issues. Generous portion. Best gluten-free pizza we've had. People who eat gluten-containing pizza say the gf pizza is as good or better than most gluten-containing pizzas. Authentic Neapolitan pizza.

    Gf pizzas were great and SAFE! Shame we paid 90 dollars for two pizzas and two glasses of wine - not worth that money! Very small venue but worth it if you want to eat safely.

    Food was amazing!! Best GF pizza we have ever had. Separate side of the kitchen and separate oven for GF. They even had us switch our seats to be away from the regular prep kitchen to avoid any possible contamination. Staff was incredibly knowledgeable!

    I looked at the package of their gf flour (as we have other allergies) for the pizza crust and the first ingredient is “gluten free wheat starch”. It’s not made in the US. We left because we don’t eat any type of wheat starch and we’re super sensitive. Told the manager that.

    I am VERY new to the GF world & this was probably the best pizza I've ever had! The crust was so good that I check my receipt a couple times to make sure it said gluten free. Then I noticed the box is clearly marked too LOL. They had several gf options - I had the KESTÉ. If it weren't for this app, I probably never would've gone there. I will definitely come back next time I'm in NYC

    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.
