    Don’t be fooled gluten free pizza is coated in flour. Pasta was horrible. Don’t eat here!

    We asked if they had anything gluten free for me daughter. They said yes! We have a gluten free pizza. But, they said , we sprinkle it with a little bit of flour so it doesn’t stick. I said, so it’s no longer gluten free. They said the only thing that is gluten free is our pasta and red sauce. So, my daughter got that and I’m hoping she will be okay. I can not recommend this restaurant as they didn’t seem to understand having celiac disease.

    They have GF pizza but it is not made in a GF environment and we were told they dust with flour before putting in the oven so it doesn’t stick. Not celiac safe! Only GF pasta is penne with marinara or garlic and oil. Waiter said all cooked in same pots with other pasta but when he asked the chef was told they will cook in a separate pot of water. Have to talk to the manager if you have Celiac.

    The pizza was good! But if you are more sensitive be aware, like most pizza places it is not made in an entirely gluten free facility.

    Waiter said the GF pizza was 10” and kinda small. I found it a great personal size however it’s priced like a whole pizza ($19). It was very good though.

    My friends loved their pizza. That looked so good. I ordered a salad, which tasted great Unfortunately I tried to have a conversation with the waiter about cross contamination and he didn't seem to care. So I crossed my fingers and did my best (on very small table) not to get my salad anywhere near the pizza or the pizza rolls. All-in-all, we had a nice time, but I won't go again.

    Awful. I have celiac. They spend the money to have gluten free crust and pasta but don't even try to cook without cross contamination. They were not kind or courteous, I got so frustrated I eventually said "so if I eat here I will be poisoned" and the waiter said yes. I ate a plate of sad veggies that I am sure they spat in. Avoid this place at all costs if you have a gluten issue.

    Disclaimer: I am NOT celiac. The waiter specifically said the pizza is made in the same oven as the regular pizzas. I did ask him to wipe out the oven and he said they could absolutely do that. He was very knowledgable and patient with me. I got a gfree pizza with sausage. When it came out, I actually had to ask the waiter to assure me that it was gluten free because it looked SO GOOD. He said it was and I took a bite. And, let's just say there were many happy tears. I have missed New York pizza since I stopped eating gluten but this gave me that taste back. I am SO happy with my experience here. Now I have to see if they deliver to Orlando, FL!

    Honestly the best gluten free pizza I have had. I did a simple Pepperoni, Garlic, and Basil pizza. It was one of the most flavorful pizzas I've had in my 5 years of being gluten free. Wish they had a John's pizza in Raleigh, NC just so uncoils have some solid option!

    This is NOT a celiac friendly restaurant. I went here with my family because of the great reviews it has, I have celiac and because it has a gluten-free menu I thought it would be a good place to go. They have two gluten free options, pizza and pasta. I asked about the pizza and the waitress told me that everything is cross contaminated, so I didn't go with that. She said the better option would be to go with pasta instead so I ordered gf penne with marinara. After taking a few bites of my pasta I was horribly surprised to find a spaghetti noodle mixed in. My waitress said they usually put it in a whole separate pot of water but I am not convinced! I would absolutely not recommend this restaurant to anybody with celiac.

    The GF pizza is great: authentic, airy brick oven crust. The best GF pizza crust we've had. Highly recommended!

    Two GF options on menu - penne with your choice of sauce and a personal pizza. Go for the pizza. By far, the best gf pizza I have had in almost a year of being gf! I feel like I've had a real NY pizza!!!

    Pizza had a pretty good amount of topping and crust had good texture. The edges was a bit burnt and olives were canned. I liked it a lot, but it wasn't amazing. I would eat there again. My husband also liked his non-gluten-free pizza. Nice ambiance.
