I like this chain and have eaten at many locations, this was my first experience at this location. I explained that I have Celiac and a Dairy Allergy. The server took my order and communicated with the Kitchen. The rest of my party received their pizza first.

The waitress and manager came to my table to tell me that there was an accident in the kitchen and that they would remake it. This care and caution is worth the wait x3 times over. Not getting sick? I'll wait all evening. I didn't have to send it back myself? They proved they are knowledgable and will hold themselves accountable.

My pizza came out safe and I had an amazing birthday dinner with my friends. I did not feel any cross contamination after eating. The vegan cheese was very good and they took good care of my vegan friend. They took my allergy very seriously.

Food is good, seemed to avoid cross contamination, but the absolute slowest service. Even take out is double the time you are told. Be prepared to spend hours waiting!

Waitress brought out order, looked "weird" to me. I asked if it was for sure gluten free, she stated "yes". Ate a slice, came back 5 minutes later saying she brought us the wrong pizza from the back. Needless to say, I'm extremely sick a few hours later and won't be back.

Not safe for Celiac. EVERY TIME I’ve eaten here I have ended up having a very negative body reaction. Cross contamination is extremely high and I do not feel proper safety measures are taken even after informing the waiter/waitress of the severity of my concerns about food safety.

Pizza was ok. Crust was cardboard like. It is safe but there's definitely better gf pizza options out there. Angelo's in Lakewood now has gf pizza, cooked and made separately and so does pelicanos in rocky river.

Awesome pizza. Went with the gourmet white. Asked about their process and they assured me the have a separate oven used for GF and handled with all different utensils etc for safety. I would definitely recommend trying out this place. It's my new favorite pizza place!

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.

(Review from a local) We eat here and get delivery regularly. They’ve never gotten us sick. Best celiac experience we’ve had at a restaurant ever! They are as good as some Disney restaurants when it comes to allergies!! They have a separate prep space and allergy oven. They use corn masa to roll their regular pizzas instead of flour so airborne gluten isnt too much of an issue. We were able to speak directly with the manager and he made the pizzas himself to ensure no cross contamination and myself and my celiac son felt great after. Also, they carry glutenberg beers for those that like to enjoy a certified gluten free beer with their pizza.

We always have a good dining experience with Mellow mushroom But today was great! Our server was on top If it my son’s pizza came Out separately and was cooked/prepared safely.....he enjoyed it! The rest of us enjoyed our meal, as well! Thank you for going the extra steps to create a separate area for gluten free pizzas to be prepped and cooked!
