If I could give a zero star rating, I would. Despite reassurances that they could flag as an "allergy", change gloves, clean surfaces etc, they carried the GF crust in on top of a flour bin, put the pizza directly in the floury oven, used same cutter, etc. when questioned, the manager said "yeah, well it's not a GF environment." Avoid like the plague if you have celiac disease or NCGS.

Hands down, my favorite pizza in the Bay Area. Despite a severe gluten allergy, I've never had a problem at this location.

(A footnote to Dan's one-star review: the staff does wash their hands before starting a GF pie.)

We ordered a GF pizza and emphasizes our sensitivity. When they brought the pizza my 7 year old facing the kitchen noticed nobody is wearing gloves... I asked if this was prepared separately and was answered they will remake it. Waiting impatiently we see our remade pizza is ready and right before being taken out we see a kitchen worker take it back and with bare hands tops it with arugula or spices... So they went back to remake it for the 3rd time. It tasted very good but this was no fun, and I wonder what would have happened if my alert child wasn't facing the kitchen.

This Patxi's is fantastic: consistently good service, no cross-contamination issues. They'll even make a gluten-free version of the Burrata appetizer by cooking up a GF crust brushed with olive oil in ace of Foccacia.

The only thing I have to watch out for is that some of the meats aren't GF (e.g. the sausage, and I have doubts about the coppa.) The Proscuitto is fine, as is the bacon.

This has become a regular haunt for my sweetie and myself (and I'm seriously allergic to wheat.)

Well, it was gluten free pizza. My issues are more with the service than anything else.

Name is actually "Paxti's". FABULOUS GF crust, tasty, nicely risen, tastes you don't think it's GF. Greats cheeses, unusual combinations. GF pizza is not an oxymoron here

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!!!

The service was very good,. We order what was supposed to be a gluten-free, vegan pizza. We both got sick.
