I went to this place and after eating GF pizza I really got symptomatic and sick. I got a piece of pizza home just to check and it was positive on Nima tester. Will definitely not recommend this place for people with Celiac Disease.

My daughter ordered a gf pizza since so many reviewers raved about it. Twenty minutes after she took the first bite, she was rush to nearby Hoag emergency room. I have contacted the owner from his website and haven’t heard back yet.

Staff is extremely helpful & knowledgeable about GF/Celiac concerns. Owner is a dietician/nutritionist. Everything was delicious. My son with Celiac was able to enjoy the truffle fries, prosciutto board (without pita), salad, & Margarita pizza without any reactions. Most pastas & pizzas can be made Gf. Dedicated GF cooking area. Outstanding! Wish more options like this place.

My favorite pizza is the gf patata. I’ve had their salad (can’t remember which one). Their truffle fries are great. The have a separate fryer. They are knowledgeable and I’ve never had a reaction there.

Absolutely delicious pizza. In fact, the best gluten free pizza I’ve ever had. The crust was thick and delicious with those air pockets that you never see on gf pizza. They also had gf pasta, but my celiac son and I (NCGS) both chose the pizza with the GF crust.

The gluten free pizza is amazing..... It's even got great texture the next day. It's the best gf pizza I've had. They understand gf, and prepare it separately to prevent cross contamination. Service is friendly and knowledgeable. It will be a regular place for me!

The best gluten free pizza I’ve ever had. The dough is soft and fluffy unlike most GF pizzas which are usually on the crispier side.

The best gluten free pizza I’ve ever had!!! Thick crust, and delicious toppings. Any pasta, pizza, or salad can be made gluten free, and they have a dedicated kitchen area. My new go-to Italian restaurant.

Most amazing GF pizza crust I have ever had...Their pizza is absolutely amazing and they make their own GF pizza crusts. Never had a reaction from their food. They do make "regular" pizza as well, but they seem to be pretty careful and knowledgeable about gluten issues.
