I called in advance and talked to the manager, Matt about the menu and precautions. He was careful to express that because they make their own pizza dough that it was impossible to completely eliminate the risk of cross contamination, but they take care to maintain separation. His honesty and care about this actually made me more comfortable. He indicated that they cook the gluten free pizza in a separate oven and provide gluten free flatbread. There is no indication of GF on the menu, although about 50% seems to be available that way.

When we later called to order, the person taking the order did not seem knowledgeable at all about what the gluten free options were. We placed the order with some hesitation. When we picked it up, we asked Matt, the manager, to double check the order, and he did.

I’m not someone who gets immediate symptoms, so I can’t speak to whether or not we were safe, but I felt good about the choice. Food was great!

Great gluten free options from flatbread, hummus, pizza, and meat entrees. For dinner, I have ordered both the meat and Mediterranean pizza numerous times - it is a huge and thick crust. Expensive pizza ($16) but worth it for the taste and thick crust. For brunch, I’ve had the steak hash and mimosas. Staff is knowledgeable about menu items that are gluten free!

Prior to diagnosis, I frequented Eatery A often. I was so happy to find out all of their pizzas can be made gluten-free. Their staff is very knowledgeable and nothing can beat their happy hour!

I'm not usually very sensitive but the GF pizza here really messed me up something fierce. Plus, the crust isn't very good at all. It's dry and very bland. They should reformulate their GF crust and make it safe.

Delicious gluten free pizza. Crust made in house. Separate space for allergy prep. Favorite place to eat in town, as I am very sensitive.
