The taste of the gluten free deep wish was ok, but I immediately got sick within the hour. They use the same tong to grab onto the pans while slicing for you and I doubt they clean it between each table. I think that’s what made me sick since I only had 1 slice from that corner. The person who took our pizzas after to be wrapped up to go also didn’t know what gluten was, so I just threw the entire thing away. Definitely stay away if you’re sensitive.

gluten free, thin crust is our favorite and it’s celiac friendly. You just have to tell them you have an allergy my daughter and my husband have never had a problem and now they have a deep dish gluten-free. We would like to try.

The salad was super yummy and gluten-free (Malnatis Salad). We got the gluten-free deep dish. The crust was a little skqeaky and chewy but overall not bad. The staff was all super knowledgeable and helpful in navigating through the menu and making recommendations!

Got the gf deep dish. Did not get sick but the flavor was terrible. I would go back & try the thin crust but their deep dish has scarred me.

I have had a gluten free pizza here it’s not worth the money it made me sick. The pizza is made out of some hard crust it tasted like eating a cookie. Pretty nasty. Their salads are gluten free and yummy especially the lumanatis salad with salami pieces. That’s all I can have there. I won’t ever eat their pizza again. It’s just disgusting.

Yes they do have gluten free pizza, but I don't understand why so many people are so excited about it. The crust tasted like a butter cracker, not appealing to me in a pizza crust. The Chicago-style pepperoni topping was nothing special. The only alternative to this was a crust made of Italian sausage, which was greasy and just plain nauseating. The best part of the meal was the bone-in chicken wing appetizers. Not worth the hour and a half wait to get in.

I know this review is the minority but we did not care for the gf pizza. The price was reasonable but neither my son nor myself cared for the crust. For me also, the crust left a unfavorable aftertaste.

I had the thin rice crust pizza and it was great! I've resolved that I will never have a pizza experience like I did before I had to go gf so my expectations are different.

I couldn't eat the cheese bc I'm also dairy free, so I loaded up with good toppings. I had sausage, garlic, spinach, black olives and mushrooms. It was literally the best gf pizza I've had since eating gf. Obviously, pizza with no cheese is lacking so I got some olive oil, sprinkled salt in it and dipped my pizza in and it was perfect!

This restaurant is also highly recommend def by locals. The non-gf pizza is incredible says my pizza deprived husband! It is made deep dish and the sauce is on top of the impossibly long and tantalizing cheese. They may make the gf pizza like this too, I just don't know since I can't have dairy.
