I have tried 4 different times to eat here and 3/4 I have gotten sick! If you are sensitive don't do it. I'm very sad because it tastes great and I miss pizza!

I feel like this place is pretty hit or miss with getting glutened for me. I’ve been previously and ordered pizza and been okay but today I got the gluten free pasta with bolognese sauce and was sick within the hour. I double checked with the waiter about the pasta being boiled in clean water (because sometimes Italian restaurants reuse water) and he assured me they did. Only other thing I had was white wine so it had to have been the pasta/sauce.

Very good gluten free pizza dough and pasta. Many dishes can be made gluten free. The staff is very knowledgeable about what's gluten free and what's not.

Best gluten free pizza I’ve had outside Italy!! Crust is not just crackery but soft and sooo good. They also have vegan pizzas that my sister who is dairy-free says is very good. I have Celiac and have eaten there many times with no reaction and staff seems very knowledgeable about cross-contamination.

I agree with previous reviews about GF pizza. It really is quite good. I asked lots of questions and got the sense that they take GF seriously. However, don’t go on a Friday night as it is super crowded and with the poor acoustics, like eating dinner in a bus station. Service was sluggish too. We will return on a slower day.

This was by far the best GF pizza I have ever had. Service was great. I also ordered the Amalfi salad, fresh and delicious. I will return often. My family who are not GF thought the crust was delicious too!

Their gluten free pizza is excellent . they do cook it in the clay oven but have never had any issues with getting sick after eating it. Tastes almost like the regular crust yummy!

When I called they told me they take precautions and cook the gluten free pizza separately but after eating it the manager told me it just goes into the clay oven like the regular ones and that the high heat kills the gluten. That is not true! I got so sick! If you react to gluten do not eat here!!

Best GF pizza I've had in my life and I've been GF for 10 years. Hands down. Like the other person said, it's doughy and delicious just like non-gf pizza. You will not regret eating here.
