Used the app to find Russo’s while visiting Galveston Island from out of town. Our family of four (3 with Celiac and 1 with an additional peanut/tree nut allergy) had the GF pepperoni pizza, chicken Alfredo pasta, and pasta Primavera. All were absolutely delicious! So good we went back for a second time the following night!! Confirmed they cook their GF penne pasta in separate water and have a separate prep area in the kitchen for GF. Our bill was around $80 (before tip) for food, 3 pops, and a glass of wine. Would highly recommend this location!

Had no symptoms after eating a whole gf pizza and am a sensitive celiac

I’m celiac and ordered a gf pizza for delivery to my hotel. The Bianca pizza was delicious! Celiac-friendly as I had no symptoms. Highly recommend!

The Mediterranean salad is absolutely delish, they also have a truffle mushroom sauce if you don't want standard pasta sauce with your pizza for pesto and gluten-free medium size. My understanding from the counter waitresses that they prepare the pizza in a separate oven for celiac friendly as well as prepackaged cheese's

My daughter and I are Celiac. Split the Mediterranean GF pizza and chicken GF pasta kale salad. No reactions that either of us notices over 2 days. Staff not real knowledgeable about GF on the phone and has to speak with a manager who seamed somewhat knowledgeable. I would probably have it again but would go at an odd time just to be safe.

Ordered their pizza to my hotel room after 10 hours of redeye air travel with no food. It was pricey, but man it hit the spot! They told me upfront that delivery would take an hour, it was worth the wait. Non-celiac gluten intolerant.

Service wasn’t terrible, but wasn’t great. When I asked about gluten free she exclaimed that they offered gluten free noodles and pizza crust. I informed her that it was an allergy and that I needed her to be 100% sure. She came back and told me she read the ingredients of everything and that it “should” be ok although she wasn’t really sure what gluten was. I ordered the chicken pesto pasta and the tomato soup. The soup was amazing. My noodles were not fully cooked. We also had issues ordering drinks during happy hour and my friend was brought lemons for her dos when she specifically asked for limes and for her beer to be dressed which it wasn’t. I won’t be returning, although I heard really good things about it. I’m pretty sure I did get cross contamination.
