best gf pizza I've had so far!
It has a great taste, and when we have tried to get a cheaper pizza that is gf we are always disappointed so then we come back and don't mind the upcharge as much. I wouldn't say they are a 100% safe for celiac but I think they are trying. Some staff are more knowledgeable than others.
Do not order the "gluten free" pasta, I made that mistake after repeatedly asking if it was really gluten free. I was literally the only person in the restaurant at the time so it wasn't a case of them mixing up an order or getting things wrong due to being busy
We've eaten here a few times and it's either hit or miss for my daughter and I. We both have Celiac so we know when we've had gluten. We definitely had gluten in the GF pizza we ate here today. Cross contamination is often misunderstood and when I asked the owner to explain the practice they used to ensure the pizza would be GF, he got uppity about how they prepare the dough in a separate location off site. Apparently, there staff isn't trained appropriately. Why go through all the effort of having it off-site when you're not going to keep it GF? There's also a sign in the front that states "Gluten Free Pizza A Healthy Alternative". Not everyone eats GF to be healthy. They eat GF because they have an autoimmune this order. Don't eat here unless you want to take your chances.
This is the second time we have eaten here with no issues. With both my Celiac husband and son very sensitive to any cross contamination they have never had any issues. Being from out of town we are always very leery of trying new places but Palio's staff are very knowledgable and have a completely separate table and prep area for their gluten free pizza. What's equally impressive is you don't just get the small personal size pizza with the Udi's crust but a full size pizza for not a bad price! We will definitely be visiting there again.
The Flower Mound location has a GF crust that is prepped on dedicated pans and cut with clean cutters, but their condiments and toppings are reached into with bare hands by the same cook who is prepping gluten-dough. I was told that "microparticles of flour" are in the toppings. I think this one might be for the fad dieters. With a little celiac kiddo, I'll be skipping this place until they can promise the toppings are clean.
OMG ... Eating the chicken cashew gf pizza and it is absolutely delicious! I use this app because I travel to many places around the country and it has never steered me wrong. Trust in these reviews. The pizza is absolutely delicious and the staff was wonderful!
I just ordered a luncheon to be sent to one of our meetings, and it was so delicious that our VP who is not a big pizza eater had to join the meeting and have some. The King pizza and Italian specialty pizza, were a big hit and made us look good to our guests. I will make sure Palio's are added to our corporate catering list.
