I was informed that they use the utmost precautions and had not had complaints. I tested my pizza with my NIMA sensor and it was found to have gluten. When the manager was made aware, the response was, “So?” I would definitely not eat here unless you have a Nima and I was not impressed with their willingness to learn and prevent mistakes in the future. Furthermore, their lack of basic costumer service and contrition was also a problem.

This may have been the worst pizza I’ve ever had, gluten-free or not. Typical mass produced pizza crust that’s like cardboard, mozzarella was fine, but the toppings for the “meat eaters” special? Bacon bits, tiny diced ham cubes like you’d get cheaply from a grocery store, Italian sausage that was more like brown hot dog cut at a slant and some pepperoni. Fortunately I’m in town for business so I won’t even have to ever consider this place again. And I’m already starting to itch, so it’s going to be an awful night thanks to this dinner.

Started with the 'chopped salad' which consisted of dark green and black pieces of lettuce. Four green olives cut in half and one piece of tomato and a container of balsamic dressing. Not a 'side salad' but a large dinner salad . . 9.99.

After reading the other reviews, I was hopeful that the 'spinach pizza supreme' would be better than the salad. It's on one of those cracker crusts with the holes in it so it will cook through. Surprised to see that the cheese didn't cover the holes because it was plopped on the middle of the crust with a large margin of only crust on the outside. Four pieces of spinach and four plops of garlic on top. Very disappointing after all that wasn't present during the meal to get the stabbing pains of being glutened before the meal was over.

I called ahead and confirmed again while there that this location has a separate kitchen space for the GF items (no shared skillets, colanders, etc.), and the food is made to order. I'm not sure what the kitchen situation is like at the other locations, though. I had a delicious shrimp penne alfredo & can't wait to go back to try the pizza. For the celiacs, I'm very sensitive & didn't have a bit of trouble here.

I told them my daughter was Celiac and they have a separate prepping station for allergies. Even the chicken on our salad was in a different area to help reduce cross contamination. The pizza was ok, but the GF penne Alfredo was absolutely delicious! My kids devoured it. Will def return!

Love the pizza and pasta just wish they had a bigger GF menu. They prep food in a separate area and appear to be very careful. We have even had good luck with takeout.

I called the restaurant to confirm that their GF items were made in a separate area and do not co-mingle with traditional items and was told “yes”. No real explanation other than that. My daughter has Celiac’s and got sick within 10min of eating 4 bites of GF pizza.

GF pizza tasted fine, quality was fine but obviously it made its way to touch other non GF items or gloves were not changed.

Staff was knowledgeable and double checked everything with the kitchen. They do have a separate Gf menu and also let you know some dishes can be made gf if you want. I can’t speak to how the kitchen prepares gf food. The Alfredo was delicious! I cannot say enough good things about the staff. I completely enjoyed my meal and felt like they genuinely cares about my celiacs.

While I didn't get sick, I did find this place forgettable. Crust is heavy, dry and a strange consistency. Almost no sauce on the pie, making it hard to eat. Won't be back. 3 stars simply for preparing safely.

This is my go-to spot when I want pizza! They have one of the best GF crusts in town and I have yet to experience cross contamination/get sick after eating here dozens of times!

They did mess up my order at first by accidentally giving me croutons on my salad and my pizza was the wrong kind but gluten free. The manager and waitress were really nice about it and gave us a free pizza and brought me the right order.

Preface- this is about the pasta only! We have not tried the pizza. Have eaten there 2x without any issue. The 3rd time the GF pasta was served with 2 big pieces of garlic bread on the side of the bowl. I asked the server and she said it was GF bread. I had my doubts and asked her to ask the kitchen. It wasn't. Even after the pasta had been remade, I got sick. Gave it one more try after that and was glutened again. Unfortunate. They need better training for the servers.
