    Unfortunately, as a Celiac, I cannot recommend this specific Mellow. First time I ate here, I was sick before leaving the restaurant. Second time around, sick halfway home. Both times, I specified that I had Celiac, and asked if it would be prepped and cooked safely. I was assured it would be. My digestive tract says otherwise. The Raleigh MM, however, I've had zero issue with (to date).

    The best Celiac-safe pizza out there, but a bit pricey. Not too bad if you split a pepperoni with a friend though! I eat it regularly and have never gotten sick. They train their staff for Celiac.

    GF menu, told server of celiac, confirmed separate cooking area. Ordered meat pizza with all the crisp edges and pepperoni grease pools. So delicious. No reaction.

    Love 'em! Consistent quality GF pizza that never makes me sick, and when a server recently waved a wheat pizza over mine, they re-made my GF pizza without a single complaint. New sauces are intesting and different, and they just got Crispin cider on tap - yay!

    Best gf pizza you can get, but I agree with Katie that it is quite expensive for the size. I'm the only one of the family who can eat gluten so I get pretzels to help keep the total bill down.

    i've always been a fan of their pizza and the GF one is good. i think they also have GF beer. however, be warned- the 12" GF pizza is $18, at least in Durham. i don't think it used to be that pricey and the GF pizza at other places like Brixx and Lilly's is cheaper, i think. mellow mushroom is safe and good quality but be prepared to spend a lot.

    If you let the greeter and/or server know you have celiac, your table should be wiped down and your food will come on distinct plates. They're done a good job training their folks, it seems. The pizza crust is really good, though it's a shame it doesn't come in more than one size.

    Great pizza. Great service. The host even wiped down our table and brought out special gf safe plates. I've never gotten sick here, and I am super sensitive.
