I ordered a gluten-free pizza for take out. Someone called me back a few minutes later to see if I wanted to sub out the cheese on the specialty pizza I ordered because it contained gluten!
Very knowledgable about gluten free and the gluten free pizza was delicious. Our daughter loved it. It is getting 4 stars because we went on a random and empty Monday night and it took a really long time to get our food and the gluten eaters in our group thought the food was extremely average. But as far as having a safe place to eat, this place fits the bill!
This is one of my absolute favorite places in Charlottesville ❤ the Funghitown pizza will change your life. Gluten free crust is sometimes a little dark on the edges, but very satisfying and perfect in the middle. Have been here many times and have never experienced cross contamination, but have only ever had pizza. Always have leftovers. Note: be sure to check about the meats on some of the pizzas, some of them have wheat in them (like meatball, obviously).
Maybe it’s too soon to tell if I got cross-contamination, but my husband called before we stopped in since we were traveling. The staff was very knowledgeable and would even do special order GF wings if you call ahead. And GF items are marked on the menu. Pizza was delicious! For now, 5 stars. If the other reviews were right I’ll update my rating ;)
Once upon a time, this place was very celiac friendly and gluten conscious. HOWEVER, it changed ownership a couple years ago and is NO LONGER CELIAC SAFE. Just to warn everyone. They don't offer any gluten free options on their menu, and there is potentially massive cross contamination in the kitchen. (When I asked the waiter he didn't know what celiac disease meant or what cross contamination was — not a good sign for celiacs. They might be able to make changes for the less gluten sensitive people, but not safe for celiacs.) The place seems nice and great for normal people, as restaurants go. But as for gluten free, I have to give it a very low rating. They do have ciders on draft or Bold Rock in cans if you want to go with your friends, but I didn't feel safe about any food.
Called restaurant recently to see if I could eat here. Turns out that Fry's Spring Station is NOT SAFE FOR CELIAC!!!! Massive cross contamination and menu even states that there is trace gluten due to prep in all "gluten free" options. Avoid if you have celiac!
Really good. The gluten free crust is really good and they take time to cook it all the way through. Lots of options with pasta, pizza, and appetizers! Fun atmosphere!! Just be sure to let the staff know you have an allergy so they are super diligent about keeping your stuff separated from your party's other food.
Pros: Very attentive service, fantastic salads, tasty GF pasta, and a wide selection of beverages! I live nearby and go fairly frequently.
Cons: $3 extra / crust for a personal pizza is steep, especially because it's *always* undercooked/doughy (I guess they don't take into account extra time needed for being cooked in the tins and having different crust?). Too bad since aside from Mellow, they were my favorite pizza place before diagnosis last year.
Loved it! This restaurant is beautiful inside and out and the food... Was ahhhh-maaaaa-zing! I'd go again and again and over again if I lived closer!
GF pizza crust fairly good. Server very attentive to GF needs.
