Idk why people don’t talk about this place more, out of all the pizza places in Santa Barbara this one is by far the best. They were very knowledgeable about everything gluten free and put in a lot of effort to make sure I felt safe eating there. They contacted the chef and let the kitchen know about the “allergy” and for anyone wondering it is COMPLETELY separate from all the other gluten. They offer many options for pizza types as well as 2 different sizes of pizza crust which was great. And not to mention the food was amazing gluten and gluten free. All around great restaurant and highly recommend visiting. P.S price point is a little high

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.

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.

BEWARE!!! I ordered a gluten free take out and they sent me home with a normal pizza and I got glutened with one accidental bite and got very sick. Make sure to double triple check that they are being careful. I don’t trust them at this point and can’t even imagine about their cross contamination.

It is a really good pizza! I tried the margherita. The only bad thing is it took a while to be brought to our table. I read here there is cross contamination, I did not check that. I actually read it after I had eaten.

The gluten free crust isn’t well marked on the menu, but I knew it was there and I asked (I couldn’t even find it on the menu actually). The pizza was good, tasted like gluten free crust (not amazing but not bad), and the pizza is very customizable which is fun. Good location and many other non-gluten options for my fellow diners. I would go again!

I have eaten here many times and never gotten sick (note: i am an extremely sensitive celiac). If you are clear with them, they will ensure the space is clean and no cross contamination. They use their oven too cook the GF pizza (not in fire oven) on a pan dedicated for their gluten free crust. I will note that the only pizzas that can be made on GF crust are the thin crust. These are the only items i have guaranteed to be safe for celiac. This is one of my favorite pizzas EVER!!!
