GF pizza was yummy. I highly recommend the artichoke dip. They offered gf bread to go along with the appetizer(which was just a plain pizza crust). We ordered appetizer and 14” gf pizza. Plenty for two people and left overs. Would definitely visit again.

Patxi’s Pizza has gf thin crust. Knowledgeable servers reviewed the process and assured us it’s safe (with usual caveats about not being a gluten free kitchen). We had vegan gf thin crust cheese and gf vegan classic veggie thin crust. Tested crust and sauce with Nima tester and it passed. Pizza tastes great too.

Started of promisingly but my Coeliac wife was served a regular Gluten containing base after ordering GF and telling the server she was Coeliac. If you do eat here double check when your pizza comes out!

The gf pizza is delicious! The homemade crust was crunchy and tasted great! I have celiac and have been here several times now with no problems. Gluten free options are clearly marked on the menu and the wait staff is very knowledgeable.

The staff had great knowledge of what is gluten free. What I loved most is that my husband is allergic to dairy and they had dairy free cheese. It’s been a long time since he was able to have cheese on a pizza.

Ordered 2, 10 inch gluten free pizzas. One pepperoni and the spinach pizza. Both tasted fine. Wait time wasn’t too long.

Pizza was great! The waitress told me the gf pizza is cooked on a separate rack from the "normal" pizzas. They can't guarantee no cross-contamination, but basically no restaurant wants to unless they're dedicated gf anyway.

Celiac here. They have a great GF pizza with super fresh ingredients. Friendly staff as well, which matters to me. Never felt bad after eating.

Very pricey but definitely a delicious meal! Bartender was excellent and menu was clearly marked... GF crust was one of the better ones we have had and quite good.

Celiac disease and am pretty sensitive & didn't get sick after.

This place is always good but must say the SB location was the best Patxi's pizza we have had so far.

I’ve loved their food for years, but it seems they’re not doing enough to manage cross-contamination. I had a bad systemic reaction the last time I had one of their GF pizzas (tomato/basil/mozzarella).

Their precautions that I know of: pre-made crust on its own pan. Shared kitchen, shared utensils (e.g. for tomato sauce), shared oven.

I was comfortable with their cross contamination precautions but it didn’t sound like they have a dedicated gluten free kitchen area. GF pizza crusts are purchased from another vendor.

The reason for low stars is because of the taste. Toppings were decent but the crust is one of the poorest I’ve ever had. Reminds me of a Domino’s cardboard box taste and texture kind of a crust but with a very high price point. Clearly others loved it though so maybe they changed their crust or perhaps it’s just not my kind of pizza.

Staff was very careful to prevent cross contamination. Very tasty... reviewed too soon I guess. Sick as heck. Some kind of significant cross contamination. Sadness. I loved this place.

Returned another time, had no problems on the second visit. So, this place is hit and miss for celiacs.

I am celiac and have ordered gluten free pizza from here. I know gluten free dough is hard but theirs get really hard quickly. I can't say if they have a dedicated space for gluten free pizza. The toppings we're good but didn't love the crust.

I know someone who works here and they told me the gluten free pizzas do not have a separate space. They share the same spot in the oven cooking with the other regular pizzas. Wouldn’t recommend if you are celiac or have a severe gluten allergy
