    The BEST GF pizza I have ever eaten! It most certainly not a frozen crust as some other reviewer claimed. I order their pizza about once a week, and I've also eaten at the small, yet adorable restaurant.

    This may be a great restaurant for people who are not gluten free, but for those who cannot eat gluten: BEWARE! Although we expected a gluten free surcharge, even though it was not mentioned on menu, $10 ($5 per person for two of us) seemed excessive; especially so because my portion of pasta (broccoli cavetelli made with penne, their only gluten free pasta) was appetizer size. My daughter, ordered penne with vodka sauce and received an acceptable quantity of food--more than double the amount served on my plate. Our friend who is also gluten free ordered an antipasto as a dinner, a wise choice! Salads were not included and of course we did not have bread. The Coke my friend ordered brought our bill to $46.44 ($55 with tip). I left hungry and disappointed. I have had so many positive experiences at great Italian restaurants in New Jersey--Russilo's in West Caldwell and Scallopini's in Whippany to name just two of our favorites--that I caution the GF community to avoid being left with the bad taste of having been exploited at Francesca's in your mouth.

    The gluten pizza shell is frozen and prepackaged, not made on premise. It's not a great pie. The restaurant however is okay. The non gluten stuff looks really good though.
