    Decent pizza. VERY large, which is a change. Obviously inquire about toppings before ordering, as you would anywhere. Our waitress however was very awkward and didn't know anything about gluten. We had to be very firm and double confirm with her on our order.

    I have celiac disease and came across this restaurant as I was there visiting. Worst pizza I have ever had in my life. Pizza was all soggy not to mention the crust wasn't cooked right. I just couldn't eat it. My GF had the lobster Mac. She took two bites and just asked for a box to go. The bill came out too 44.00 dollars. We were like wow!. We could of had a 5 star meal for that price. Please don't go there not worth the money. Not to mention the cross contamination.

    Best gluten free pizza I've had! You can't even tell it's not normal pizza; it just taste like regular thin crust. Also, the service was beyond amazing! My clumsy self knocked my pizza off the stand and onto the floor, the waiter willing got the manager to come ask if we wanted another pizza on them!

    They have gluten free penne pasta, but the chef could not confirm if the red or cream sauce were GF so he did olive oil and garlic with grilled chicken... My daughter loved it! They did have GF pizza crust and said that all the toppings were GF, though we didn't order it this time. We talked to the manager who talked to the chef... Waiter was new, but more than happy to ask the chef questions for us! The rest of us had regular pizza and pasta trio and it was good!

    Food was delicious. The waiter was very helpful. No gluten free menu, he told us what we could have that was gluten free.

    Gluten free pizza is okay although one time it was severely undercooked. Everything is overpriced even for Galveston.

    Pizza ok. They don't carry Bards beer anymore now they have Redbridge and only two of those. Maybe if you stock more the sales would be more

    We ordered a GF pizza as well the GF penne. Both were outstanding!!! I highly recommend this place. To top off the meal we ordered the GF chocolate cake - delicious! Very rich - you can split one. For GF dieters Mario's is a must!

    Best gluten free (and corn free) pizza I've had to date (although just about tied with dominos)!

    Great service - they remembered all of our special requests, no mistake. All pizzas offered with GF crust and GF penne pasta can be prepared. Excellent GF chocolate torte for dessert. Prices were right for the quality and ambiance.

    They do have a GF menu (doesn't show up with the filter). Pasta and pizza--GF options. Oh, and dessert!! Server was knowledgeable and attentive. I don't usually get to really enjoy Italian food out--I'm limited to a salad or some bland chicken dish. This was fab. The fact that they had a dessert ( other than vanilla ice cream) put the icing on my cake. This is my island go-to place.

    Safe gluten-free pizza, a real treat for my kiddos. Everything else was good, too, but pricey relative to quality ... maybe that's just island prices.

    Fantastic meal at the Mario's on Seawall (not the 61st location). I enjoyed gluten-free and dairy-free shrimp pasta pomodora, italian salad, and flourless chocolate cake to finish. All was prepared according to my dietary needs and the service was impeccable. Great, friendly staff, and one particular server named Julian was especially knowledgable regarding gluten-free options. They also can prepare pizza gluten free and dairy free, which I look forward to trying next time around!

    Awful service. Picked this resturant, as from reviews it looked good for gluten free. Checked when we arrived if they had a gluten free menu. Lady said yes sure it's on the original menu. Sat down and ordered. Lady who took our order couldn't understand English. Kept checking with her that it is gluten free. She took our order and went to give it to the kitchen. Next she came back saying no we can't have that. No gluten free only pasta. She took another order from us. And then said no can't do that. She walked out. So I chased after her and asked what is going on. She said the manager is busy. Then 5 minutes later the manager arrived ( 16 year old girl) and said we only have pasta that it is. As it's spring break we don't have anything else. Well one your lady on reception should know what she is going. And two the chefs should know how to order correctly! We ended up walking out! An they still charged us for our drinks. Appalling service... Never again! Does not understand what gluten free means...
