I got a gf crust pizza last night with high expectations because I have had it in the past and it was pretty good. I ordered the goat cheese and it was so disappointing, especially for the price . The crust was tasteless and fairly gross , I ended up throwing away all but 2 pieces .

Great pizza! Also have pasta but we didn't try it. Pizzas are wood fired and not sure about the over but our celiac had no issues.

Thin-crust individual-sized gluten free pizzas. They cook them in a separate area than the wheat dough pizzas. We shared the margherita and burrata pesto. Delicious.

I hosted my rehearsal dinner for my wedding here with 30 people. We set the menu ahead of time and everything was delicious! The GF pizza crust was thin, but surprisingly flavorful! Everyone's favorite pizza was the BBQ chicken, and the BBQ sauce was also GF. The salads were excellent. Service was attentive, but they did make a small mistake with checks that we managed to sort out. Would definitely go back!

French fries are made in a dedicated frier. They made our son a special meal of chicken breast and rice and were very careful and helpful with cross contamination. Super helpful, very safe, and good food

NOT CELIAC SAFE!! They make and cook the pizza on all shared surfaces so that is immediately out. They didn’t take me seriously when I told them I was celiac and needed them to change gloves/clean workstation/use non-gluten utensils. In fact, the waiter rolled his eyes. But I was there for a work lunch, so I just got one of the gf salads. And I am SO sick. I still have stomach cramps and diarrhea days later. It feels like I just straight up ate gluten. Would not recommend.

They do prevent cross contamination multiple different ways. Crust is pretty thin. We modified the BBQ pizza on the menu a bit. It was super yummy. They have several other options on the menu now that are GG besides the pizza, but we only had the pizza. They made us a gf version of the apple pie pizza. I do not recommend that. It was difficult to eat. All the staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Nice, slightly upscale, elegant, but relaxed ambience. I would come again, and do recommend it.

They take Celiac seriously!!! Items are clearly marked on the menu. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable. The kitchen has appropriate procedures in place for cross contact.

The girls ate a Cobb salad and a gf cheese pizza. They said it was delicious! It must have been, because not a single piece was left and that is unusual. Their salad didn't come out as quickly as we had hoped, but the manager came to us and said that she is remaking it because the prosciutto that was in the salad was fried in a shared fryer and therefore wasn't safe. She caught it before it left the kitchen! So very appreciative!
