I ordered the house salad and GF pepperoni pizza. I didn’t get sick but the pizza had little flavor. I’d try another place.

I asked and was told Information different than some of the other reviews by person at front, who went to ask someone in back to check and confirm. I was told that they don’t have dedicated gluten free space. They do have gluten free pizza for which I was told they change gloves when handling, cook on separate gf pan and seem careful about BUT cook gf pizza uncovered in the same oven as the regular pizzas at the same time those regular pizzas are cooking uncovered, etc. Not safe for my daughters with celiac due to potential cross contamination with airborne flour but others can make their own decisions. No dedicated gf fryer and no gf bread or buns for sandwiches or burgers.

The owner came out to speak to us. He has celiacs in his family. Pizza was made in a separate location and is certified. They have a GF brownie for dessert.

First time here. We had a wonderful server who clearly understood our gluten needs. She was reassuring and knowledgeable. The gluten free pizza was delicious and so was all the other food the rest of the family had, especially the mushroom soup! Would highly recommend.

This place makes great pizza (and I’m from NJ). They have standard and unique toppings deliciously executed. All of their pizzas can be made with a GF crust, but they can only assure no cross contamination on 4 or 5 of them. I had the Holy Shitake which was delicious! Their gf crust was nice and thin and leaned toward crispy (so many gf pizza crusts have that unappealing sponginess) and actually had flavor. The regular crusts (my family had both thin and traditional) were reported to be tasty as well, but the big star were the wings. I do not know if there’s a dedicated GF fryer, but my family declared them the best ever!

GF pizza with a couple toppings, maybe the meaty or something like that.

Our server was knowledgeable and confident in their gf food and procedures. We’ll return.

I asked to speak to a manager and the owner actually came to the table. He was very familiar with celiac as he has a family member with the disease. He talked me through available GF options and the pizza I ordered was delicious!! Would highly recommend this establishment!!!

The nice waiter asked the restaurant manager to come speak to my table about the gluten free precautions they take. I was informed that if I have celiac, to not order the oven baked wings because they are baked in the same oven as the normal pizzas. I am glad that they were honest! She said that the only menu items that they will 100% guarantee are gluten free are their 4 gluten free pizzas (listed in small font at the bottom of the pizza section of the menu). These pizzas are made in a gluten free designated section of the kitchen. I appreciate that the manager took the time to speak with me.

I had the Kosmic Karma with the pesto swirl and it was delicious. There are 3 other gluten free certified pizza options. Their gluten free crust was very good and cooked well. I enjoyed my meal and will be back!

This place went above and beyond to make our meal safe for our son with celiac disease. When they ran out of gluten free pizza dough, they went to another restaurant who uses the same gf dough and bought some just to make our pizza. This general manager went above and beyond to make sure that we got a certified gluten free meal. My son did not get sick and we would go back again in a heartbeat.

Waiter was very good about letting us know which food was "no gluten ingredients" and which were properly gluten free. Annoyingly GF on menu is not the marking for "free of any gluten".

GF pizza was very good and would happily go back.

After halfway through eating my calvone I started seeing blue elastic inside my food. They took it off my bill but needless to say my wife stopped enjoying her gluten free pizza. We have ate there many times but we're not driving 20 miles again to have to worry about having latex gloves ground up in our meal.

Had an absolutely amazing gluten-free (house special) pizza with no reaction! Wonderful experience all around. Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a place to eat pizza at (cool atmosphere included) with dietary or allergy restrictions.
