    Had a lot GF pizza in our time and aside from Nicli Antica Pizzeria in Vancouver BC this is one of the best we've had. Light, crispy crust but still enough chew. Toppings (tomato, mozz) were fresh. GF Arancini and flash fried calamari were also great. Didn't try pasta. Friendly service.

    The best gluten-free pizza we've ever had. Beautiful crisp wood-fired crust! Plenty of vegan options too (a whole dedicated page).

    I'm a sensitive celiac--I've been eating here for years and have never gotten I'll. Excellent gourmet pizza done in a dedicated oven. Baby lamb chops are to die for. Great meatballs. Wine selection is good too.

    The GF pizza was AMAZING! The best we've had. Atmosphere is very nice - it was perfect for a date, although we were made very comfortable when we brought our three children (two of whom have Celiac). We would definitely return. The food and service were excellent and the staff was very knowledgeable about GF.

    So good. I had the arrancini and gluten free calamari, along with the cheese pizza. Everything was so good. Very celiac friendly.

    Very delicious. A bit strict with making substitutions for their pizza toppings but mainly because of the amount of volume they are cranking out. Had the fried calamari which was awesome to be able to have again and also a pizza with fresh prosciutto, arugula and extra virgin olive oil- dough was really good. Espresso was good too. They did note that GF dough does have soy lecithin in it, for anyone sensitive to that. Will definitely return.

    Forget f limsy slices. Pala's owners learned to make authentic Italian-style dough in rome before bringing their technique to the lower east Side. the industrial-style cafe offers separate gluten-free and vegan menus that include a range of antipasto and some unique pizza choices like "Zucca" with butternut squash puree and the "inferno" topped with spicy soppressata.

    Hands down a great place. The first time I are here my pasta was really undercooked and they gave me a hard time saying it was the nature off gf pasta, but once I sent it back and they cooked it some more, it was heavenly. Every time since has been awesome.

    A regular for me - I am never disappointed. Great options for gluten free, lactose free, vegetarian, vegan, the like. Really great staff and a wonderful dining experience that I don't have to worry about! Note - make a reservation if you can. Fills up at night, especially on weekends.

    Happiness galore! Safe, fun and feeling super normal. Got the meatballs, triple checked they were GF, had the zucchini pizza, light and excellent tomato sauce waiting on my apple tart which I expect to to be excellent! Waiter was perfect. When I wrote this review it was before I had gotten the Apple Tart. I do not recommend it, try the flourless chocolate cake or go somewhere else for desert.

    Beyond incredible. Best pizza I've had since I stopped eating gluten. And you would never know it didn't have dairy. My friend loved hers as well with regular crust, meat and cheese. Takes reservations on OpenTable

    I would agree with the rave reviews of this place. But, the pizza, although nice, wasn't the best gluten free item on the menu. I tried both the quinoa appetizer and meatballs and both were very impressive. The pizza was a tad dry and salty (my husband said the same about his, which wasn't GF) but we both agreed that other items on the menu were better than average. Service was excellent.

    One is the best GF places I've been to, the pizza is the best hands down. Many great appetizers to choose from. A top ten NYC GF restaurant that everyone should try at least once.

    Extraordinary care to ensure the MOST delicious pizza (and everything else) and salads and also very careful about keeping all gluten free orders and ingredients separated (avoiding cross-contamination!) Delicious cocktails and dessert too-all gluten":

    For years, Rissotoria with the place that we always went to New York. From now on we come here. This is, without a doubt, the best gluten-free crust I have ever had on a pizza anywhere. That counts New York, Chicago, Washington DC, and on the West Coast. They also have Green's beer and fantastic gluten free appetizers. It's a tiny little place, and it's on the Lower East Side, so it's not the easiest place in the world to get to, but I can't say enough about this place. It is fantastic!
