We have ordered here a few times and always very pleased! I always put “Gluten-free - Celiac” in my order notes and have not had a problem yet! They mark the containers clearly with “GF” which is also a plus. Good family restaurant with very good pizza, pasta, salad, and bread options. Their GF dough is some of the best I’ve had locally. Good portion sizes too! Definitely a local favorite of ours.

The staff member Actually got upset with us when we persisted on asking questions about the gf kitchen they claim on website. Staff member said she understood and promised it would be gf but then sent us regular pizza. Because we had never ordered from here before- we didn’t recognize it as different immediately until I saw the air holes in the crust. Too late for my celiac daughter who is now paying the price for this carelessness and/or severe lack of training.
CAUTION. We were excited to find this restaurant in Kirkland and ordered gf pizza for our kids one of whom has celiacs. When I called I asked multiple times about the claims of gf etc and the lady assured me the pizza was gf. Turns out they made the wrong pizza and sent us pizza with gluten. My daughter is distraught- and I am upset - both due to massive negligence as well as just really sad that a company that claims to be GF can be this careless. We want more gf restaurants and every time this sort of incompetence occurs trust is lost.
Original review from 2016:
Romio's has a great selection of delicious gluten-free dishes, not just pizza and pasta, but also sandwiches and more. I have eaten here many times, and I have been assured that gluten-free dishes are prepared in a separate area with separate utensils, which makes this place safe for celiacs. I recommend!
I'm not sure why the staff kept telling me that cross-contamination was avoided, but the website now contains several disclaimers warning that the food is not safe for celiacs. I am changing my rating to NOT celiac friendly.
Edit 04/2019: It was bugging me that the information on the safety of the food was conflicting, so called and spoke to the manager. Separate utensils are used for GF food, but the pizza is baked together with the regular pizza. The pasta should therefore be safe, but I am still unsure about the pizza.
I want to love this place, I really really do. Their food is delicious. Twice I have ordered to go options, and both times had severe Gluten reactions from "Gluten Free" options. I have Celiacs and it doesn't lie when I'm up all night never leaving the restroom. I thought the first time was a fluke, and here I am a month later with the same horrible reaction to a different menu item. For the non-gluten free, this is a 5 star place, delicious food, great delivery, ok prices. If your medically gluten sensitive, I recommend to proceed with caution. If I brave trying it again and something changes, I will update this review.
This place has the largest gluten free menu I have ever seen by a wide margin. They have gf pizza in 4(?!) sizes. They have hot sandwiches that you can order as a half or whole sandwich. They have GARLIC AND CHEESE BREAD. They also have gluten free pasta. This is THE place to go eat if you are gf. I didn't have a reaction either. I will be back here often.
10 stars, full gluten free menu except desert, however they have lots of delicious pasta and garlic bread!! I would say as good as a lasagna I had in Paris before being diagnosed with celiac. It's hard to find good lasagna any where, let alone gluten free lasagna. This is awesome!
Large selection of GF, but the pasta is much better than the pizza, which I didn't like. But the lasagne was great!
great food! huge selection of gluten free meal options. will defenitaly be coming back
Very big gf menu and I did not get sick. Went with a group and had excellent service.
They used to have the best pizza dough around. I went in recently and found out they changed the gf dough 😞 it was ok but not great. I wish they would bring it back. Overall it has a lot of gf options.
the choices were great for gluten free. the service however was not. they saw my son and immediately assumed he'd be loud and tucked us in the back to be forgotten. then surrounded it's by two very large families with children all under 6. needless to say I'll be ordering to go next time.
Great pizza (like, seriously great. even just the plain old 4 cheese is awesome) but consistently horrible delivery and customer service. Still gonna eat it though!
Yummy pizza and they seemed knowledgable about gf options! Delivery is a PLUS!
Amazing pizza! Their crust is not thin and hard, but fluffy and looks and tastes like a normal pizza! Also they have cheesy bread to eat! yum so good! Staff is very good and sometimes they have gf dessert!
