    This is absolutely, unequivocally the best experience I have ever had dining out since being diagnosed with a Celiac disease. I walked into this restaurant with my daughter, having gone hours without food because we were traveling and I had had a very difficult time finding someplace to eat at breakfast, and by the time we finished our morning activities and arrived at Pie, I was ready to pass out. The owner took one look at me, handed me a free gf brownie and bottle of water, had me seated and my pizza order in in less than 30 seconds. He sat and chatted with us, and when we finally paid they sent me off with another free water. The pizza was absolutely delicious (as was the brownie), and I left revived and with gratitude. Thank you- we'll be back!!!

    I was so happy to see that my meeting was close enough to have lunch here! I ordered the potato pizza and it was amazing! If you order gluten free, it's made separately from the rest so they really get it. Owner was super friendly as well - had a great chat about college football (Go Dawgs!). Will definitely be my go to for gf pizza when I'm in NYC. Looking forward to the brownie on the plane ride home. :)

    The GF pizza was cooked in a seperate kitchen space because the owner is celiac, and the staff was knowledgeable. The pizza was okay, but not the best I've ever had. They gave us 2 GF cookies and a GF brownie for free, so that was a plus!

    This place is amazing. The owner is extremely knowledgeable about Celiac disease and was friendly and helpful to me as a recently-diagnosed Celiac. I can't wait to come back here for their GF beer fest in October. The pizza was awesome -- it's a cracker crust style. Also of note -- eat the GF brownies. Not sure how they are made, but they are ridiculously delicious. Anyway come here if you want to feel welcomed and safe and eat delicious food. :)

    Absolutely amazing and delicious! The owner came out and spoke to me about being gluten free and how he also is--he assured me I would love the pizza and he was right! The cubed pizza is delicious! I've been here multiple times and have never had an issue--my favorite gf pizza place in the city!

    Very knowledgeable staff, with lots of options. I had a delicious g-free pizza and an apple pie for dessert. If you order dessert then be sure to order when you first go in b/c it takes 30 minutes. I'll definitely be back!

    Place caters to gluten-free patrons pretty well. Most extensive GF beer selection I've seen at a place in NYC (beer gardens included). Not sure about the kitchen in regards to cross-contamination. Pizza was just ok. Similar to Crisp in Chelsea. Very flat, dry, ingredients weren't top notch and the daiya cheese is something to be desired.

    AMAZING! We came based on a recommendation and we're SO happy we gave it a try. The staff was knowledgeable and the owner was a delight to chat with. Having a gluten intolerance himself, he has created a safe place for Celiacs. (Read their website for more information.) As for the pizza, it was so tasty! So many options (we tried 4 different creations) and we loved all of them. We even had brownies, probably the best I've had in years!

    Their pizzas are over priced and they don't have their own dough, they just use the same frozen pizza crust that practically every restaurant uses. If you don't mind paying $20 for a pizza that is made on a frozen crust, it's a good place to visit since the beer selection is the best I've ever seen.

    I've never been to a restaurant with more gluten free beer options than Pie. I was so overwhelmed at all the choices! The owner (can't remember his name) was amazingly accommodating and wonderful. Because I was so overwhelmed by all the beer choices he offered to buy me a beer if I didn't like the first one I tried. I had the GF snow white and it was very tasty. I live in Albany but I am very sure that the next time I go down to NYC, Pie will be one of my stops. Oh, and the owner gave me a GF brownie to take home and it was also delicious. A gluten free haven for sure. And, my Non-Gluten Free boyfriend thought everything we had was delicious as well.

    Participating restaurant in the Gluten Intolerance Group. Super yummy, and love the concept that you can choose exactly how much pizza you want. Also lots of GF hard cider options (the pineapple cider is amazing). GF cookies and brownies available too.

    Quite possibly the best pizza I have ever had and my non-gluten free husband said it first! Reasonably priced, great atmosphere and everything was delicious and so FRESH. We ordered and shared a truffle oil grilled ham and provolone sandwich, a bacon pizza and a salad - between the two of us we were stuffed! The owner came over and talked to us, very friendly and helpful and he even gave us a GF brownie to try. I will be eating that today since I was too full last night! I am pregnant and very careful about where I eat right now - I felt 100% safe here and enjoyed every bite. Can't wait to go back the next time we are in the city.

    What's a visit to NYC without pizza? We decided on Pie thanks to the reviews on this site. I had a 5-cheese gf pizza - yes, I like cheese - and the combination ofcheeses made the mouthwatering taste! My non-gf friends had the Italian Sausage and added the Genoa Salami. Both said it was the best they've had, and they live here. The mudslide cookie was oh-so-chocolatey, and one of the moistest cookies I've ever had. Highly recommend.

    So many gf options! The desserts were amazing and prepared well, loved the cookies. Salad and pizza were also incredibly flavorful and tasty. Crust for the pizza was crisp and not soggy. Largest selection of gf beers/ciders, far surpassing the regular selection! Would come back in a heartbeat!!!

    AMAZING PIZZA! My husband and I split the gluten free crust, it only comes in one size 10.5, and it was enough if your not extremely hungry. We asked if we could do 2 types as we both wanted something different and they had no problem! We did half "brunch"- bacon, cheese scallions and egg.. And "chicken"- chicken, mozzarella, tomatoes, and lettuce. They were both so amazing! They also have gluten free brownies, cookies, marshmallows, and soda! I highly recommend this place!

    This place is awesome! The gluten free pizza had a great crust and is prepared and cooked separately. I met the owner who is unbelievably nice and gluten free himself, so he takes great care with gluten free items. They also offer gluten free cookies, brownies, beer and cider. My new favorite pizza place.

    Amazing! The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. You can get any pizza topping you want! The owner, Jeffery, came out and talked to me (he is gluten-free also) for awhile and then gave me a brownie free of charge (and gluten). Delicious and a very home-y atmosphere, definitely recommend. Very celiac friendly as well.

    Pizza was very tasty and great simple options. GF crust was thin and crispy, fresh toppings and friendly staff. Environment was a little dingy, messy and cafeteria like. There was a dog, assuming the owners, begging at our table. Aside from that, the food was very good...would recommend
