    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.

    By far the very best GF pizza crust I have ever had. It wasn't flat as a board. It was chewy and fluffy in all the right ways.

    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.

    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.

    This is my favorite pizza restaurant in midtown. Have always had a good meal -no gluten concerns- and great service. Tables move quickly so don't let a wait scare you. It's worth it.
