Absolutely do not eat here if you are celiac. Kitchen staff has said they do not clean pizza pans between the regular and gluten free pizzas, even if asked. Guaranteed to be cross contaminated :(

Absolute MUST for celiacs. Best pizza I've ever eaten. Never made me feel sick. Not cheap, but worth every penny.

Ask lots of questions! Emmy Squared is delicious. Celiac child did not react- vomit. The first time we ate there we noticed the pizza is served on these screens, and not dedicated screens. I expressed my concern before leaving. When we went back they were still using the contaminated screens to serve the gf pizza. I requested a piece of parchment be used in between and that is how it was served. The server understood why I was requesting this, but I have no idea if this is being consistently implemented there. I suspect there is not a lot of follow though here. And if this screen is their practice I do wonder how many other unsafe things are happening.

I have had this twice and would not go back. The second time I was terribly cross contaminated and sick for days. We loved the pizza, but it was not worth the risk as a celiac

You can tell they’re paying attention to the details here—my mom has self-diagnosed issues with gluten, so she ordered the gf crust for her meatball pizza. Server went to put in the order and came back because someone in the kitchen flagged that the meatballs were not gf and wanted to confirm. She ended up changing her order to a different topping and was probably happier for it 😊

Definitely recommend eating here if you are gluten free! The pizza was amazing and the service was wonderful too!!! The gluten free crust was just as delicious as the regular!! We ordered both because not everyone in our party is gluten free. Our server Darwin did a fantastic job!

New to the GF community as we just learned our young son has celiac. This place set the bar HIGH for GF pizza…it was excellent. Little pricy for a smaller pizza but very much worth it!

I had a great experience! I informed the waiter I couldn’t have gluten and he understood. The gluten free MVP pizza was delicious! This was my second time eating here and I felt totally fine after both visits.

Editing my review, just to warn people. Pizza is sooooo delicious and I’ve eaten there maybe 15 or so times over the past 2 years, but definitely got pretty sick from it twice. I think it just depends on who’s in the kitchen that day! Definitely a tasty (though expensive) option, just beware if you’re really sensitive…

THE BEST gluten free pizza I've had. Amazing customer service. Gorgeous views on the roof and quality atmosphere indoors. It was good enough we got it for dinner two nights in a row (we're just visiting) Definitely check this place out.

Our 2 favorites was the Bad Paulie pizza and The Colony pizza.

Literally phenomenal, the pizza is amazing and so thick, the only thing i don’t like is they put the sauce on top of the cheese and sometimes to much sauce but it’s easy to take off! It also is so filling and tastes good reheated too!

I have waited until eating here 3 times to write this review. I didn’t want it to be true, because there are very limited gf pizza options in Philly. Despite this gf pizza tasting amazingggg, it has made me sick 2/3 times after eating there. I mean, full blown glutened. So so sad!

Best gluten free pizza I have ever had. I called and spoke with the owner about ordering options and learned that she had celiac disease herself. She walked me through everything on the menu to watch out for. She told me that they have a shared fryer, but they have a separate space In the same kitchen for GF pizzas, and a separate mixer and all utensils, pans, etc.

Visited Emmy Squared for the grand opening and am VERY impressed! We drove over an hour to try the gf pizza and it was well worth it. The gf pizza has a THICK crust and is Detroit style!
