Offers a thin crust made of rice flower, potato starch, and tapioca starch. You can only order medium or small. The crust is very hard but still delicious. Waiter was really kind and helpful. Very easy to order just add your own toppings

They do offer gluten free crust with your choice of toppings. I had pepperoni, black olives and mozzarella. Great taste and no reaction. Definitely worth a visit.

The waiter was helpful when asked about GF options.

The only pizza choice was a thin crust medium GF pizza base with cheese, extra toppings can be added. The pizza tasted great!

Horrible service and not very good gluten free pizza. My family ordered a large pizza and they brought out a medium and the waitress didn’t take any ownership. I would not recommend.

There is one option for gluten free pizza. It's frozen and overpriced.

This pizza restaurant is extremely unaccommodating for people with food allergies. There’s an allergy menu- but only for toppings. There are no gluten free pasta options, despite being told that there were on the phone when we called. In person, the server was friendly and tried to find answers for me, but couldn’t tell me about ingredients inside the frozen pre-made pizza crust- just a brand name: “Mama Francesca’s” which I found nothing about online. I’ve read on here it’s not that great, but I’d be happy to eat it if that’s my only option to be able to go out and have a meal with my family and friends. I have secondary allergies as serious as my wheat allergy- to both chicken eggs and corn- so I opted out of the pizza option. I was forced to order yet another salad... at the best pizza restaurant in Chicago! It can’t be that hard to put a little effort into making a great allergy-friendly pizza made entirely by the restaurant as they do for all their other costumers.

0 out of 10 would go here. We waited in line for over 30 min and as soon as we were sat at our table the waiter said they no longer have gluten free anything. Such a disappointment when all you're craving is good ole Chicago pizza.

Still frozen pizzas with only options being cheese, pepperoni or sausage. Staff was not knowledgeable but at least investigated with the kitchen.

All previous reviews still apply...GF pizza is still frozen and pre-made. Extremely dry crust with gritty after taste. Staff was sketchy on whether or not fried items were cooked in separate fryers or not, but did make the effort to ask management. Don't waste your time here, get the GF pizza from UNOs.

I read the reviews before I went so I knew what I was getting into but it was still disappointing. My boyfriend loves their deep dish pizza so because he isn't gluten free I took one for the team. :-) But before you go to Gino's know that for gluten free you have only 3 choices and it tastes like it is a frozen pizza.

Very disappointing. You may only choose from a cheese, sausage or pepperoni pizza with no other toppings. Extremely dry crust as well as little to no sauce. Much better pizza at local chains near my home in grand rapids Michigan!

I've had better GF pizza that I made at home with a premade crust. I was so excited because I love Gino's deep dish pizza. It was a major letdown. It looked and tasted exactly like a cheap frozen pizza, which I'm convinced it was because you only have a choice of two toppings. There was hardly any sauce. On a positive note, the crust was crispy. Overall it had little flavor. For a well-known Chicago pizzeria, they could do much better. I will stick with Aurelio's.

Very good pizza if you're staying in downtown. The crust is much better than most, but definitely not anywhere close to the awesome crust that Chicago's Pizza has (much further north though, but worth it).

Pizza was good, crust wasn't life changing... But overall a great, easy gfree option. Kind staff and Great location while downtown. We called ahead and they cooked the pizza while we walked over.

My husband and I walked in, got seated, and ordered drinks. Then we were told they were out of their gluten free pizza crust. Disappointed! Word to the wise: if you decide to go here, call first to make sure they have their gluten free pizza crust before you go.

The GF pizza was nothing more than a frozen pizza that you could have made at home yourself! So many better tasting options out there! HOWEVER, if you are going out with the family at least you do have the option to eat here and that is always appreciated! A little pricey as well.

Very disappointing. They have 3 pizza choices - cheese, sausage & pepperoni. You can't make any changes.
