    When I asked the server for gluten-free options, he said they had gluten-free pasta and pizza crust (although the standard menu looked like many things could have been prepared gf). When I asked about the handling of the crust and whether it was prepped and cooked on a separate surface from gluten foods, he looked like he’d never considered this. He later returned to the table saying only that the cook wouldn't guarantee anything (which nobody can of course), but didn't offer any information about taking any precautions at all. I chose not to order any food, but the other diner’s stuff looked delicious. I would love to hear if there are any positive experiences from other gluten-sensitive people here. I'm hoping it was a server issue & not a restaurant one.

    The staff is happy to make substitutions on your order to accommodate your allergies. My waitress told me that just about anything on the menu can be made gluten free. She said that if I would like additional toppings on the gluten free pizza I ordered, they would be happy to add those as well. I had the Caesar salad and a pizza. Both were delicious! The only reason I'm giving 4 instead of 5 stars is because the place was loud and a little cramped, but honestly, it's hard to find delicious food that's safe, so I didn't mind! I am a celiac and I approve this message :)

    I happened upon this place by accident while working in Alpine. Really good, different, reasonably priced, and nice atmosphere too! They have several different pizzas on the menu, but will substitute toppings too. Oh, and the pizzas are closer to a large size than other place I've been. Today we fed a family of five for $50. Two pizzas, one dinner - chicken marsala, caesar salad, and pasta with meat sauce. But we could have easily made it cheaper by just sticking to pizzas. My only complaint is that the menu could be more clear. The staff is really good at telling you what to eat though so that helps. Were happy to have a reason to take a drive to alpine. :)
