Good choice of pizzas. Any on the menu can be done with a gluten free base - they add on €4 for this option. I enjoyed mine, the base was light & crispy & not too salty either.

Just went to ask about the gf pizza and they showed me the kitchen. Although the base comes wrapped it is prepared on the same counter as the normal pizza so there’s flour everywhere. Not safe for celiacs

Best pizza in cinque terre!! So many pizza options and you can ask for any of them with a gf base. My friend was also able to ask them to take the cheese off her pizza as she is dairy free. Limoncello spritz was also delicious. Would recommend going here if you are staying in or visiting Monterosso.

Not the most amazing pizza ever, but definitely better than some really dry, thin crusted pizzas I’ve had in Italy. Could get any of their pizzas gluten free and other items on the menu were marked if they contained wheat. Also got a salad and french fries and had no issues!

They had some of the best gf pizza I’ve had in awhile. There were over 30 combinations of toppings, and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I am unsure if it is suitable for celiac because I only have an intolerance. I would ask if you are celiac, just in case.

Not safe for Celiac. They use shared utensils and cook the pizzas on the same surface as regular pizzas. The regular pizzas were good based on opinion of others in our party, but nothing special. Gave them a pizza cutter after they had finished half their pizza using a fork and knife.

Ordered a Pizza from the menu on a gluten free base (all toppings were gf). Great that you were able to choose from an extensive list of pizzas. Also had gf beer and other specific gf menu sections. Informed the bases are bought in from external provider but cooked in the wood fired pizza oven and tasted really good. Am coeliac and had no reaction. Would dine here again. Service was ok.

Abbiamo ordinato la pizza da asporto, che è davvero buona e ben condita. Mi sono sembrati attenti al rischio contaminazione: ho fatto una serie di domande all'arrivo e sono stati esaustivi e competenti nelle risposte. Unico neo il sovrapprezzo di ben 4 euro rispetto alla pizza classica...

I think Pizzeria La Smorfia’s pizzas are as close to what I remember gluteny pizzas being like: they are SO good. The dough tastes and feels like non-GF dough, and although the restaurant serves non-GF pizzas too, mine had been cooked in its own pan and there was no cross-contamination. I wish we had more time here because I’d go back to Pizzeria La Smorfia as many times as I could!

Do not go here if you have celiac disease, it is not worth it. They have no procedures or precautions for cross contamination and unfortunately the town doesn’t have many places to eat so I had to go here. A couple hours later and I am very sick.

The menu says everything can be ordered gluten-free. I ordered a pizza that was good. They burned the crust, but I’ve had so much trouble getting anything gluten-free in Italy that I don’t really care. You might think that’s a contradiction because people claim it’s so easy to GF here. Don’t believe them. I can’t tell you have any restaurants I walked up to who say I’m sorry, madam, we can’t help you.

Best gf pizza I’ve had since being diagnosed with celiac. Very large variety. The staff was knowledgeable. My nephew and I are both celiac but not really sensitive. Neither of us had a reaction and his parents ordered regular pizza and loved it. By the way, the gluten free beer was also very good. It’s a definite must try.
