This place is not safe for anyone with celiac disease they throw flour all over the place and it's highly cross contaminated no change of gloves or even wearing gloves they also don't have a separate cutter I ordered and saw them prepare the food and canceled my order right away sad but still no gluten free pizza here

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.

They have Pizza! It's pretty good. That is the only thing I have eaten in here. Be sure to ask them for GF dipping bread when they bring the bread and oil out for the table. I think it is just a pizza crust, but it is still good.

Server was nice and knowledgeable. They brought us GF Focaccia bread ($2) for an appetizer- delicious! We got GF Pizzas: grilled chicken & pepperoni. They were both good- not the best we’ve ever had, but great for our hungry tummies. :)

They have gf crusts, a variety of toppings, and are very accommodating and knowledgeable. The price is somewhat high for the portion size, but otherwise it’s good.

Gluten free options clearly marked on the menu including several kinds of pasta, salad dressings and pizza crust. The server brought our kids GF pasta with regular bread (oops!) so be sure to express your gluten intolerance or Celiac disease very clearly to your server. She said they have dedicated cooking space in the pizza oven. Good vegetarian options as well.

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!
