*this location specifically* (others have been fine) after clearly stating "I am gluten free...the bad kind...celiac...please let the kitchen know, bc I get very sick"... Waiter didn't note it on the ticket, didn't recognize my pizza crust was what, dropped pizza off, and disappeared. We had to flag down a manager to ask of the crust was really GF (nope). No understanding from waiter OR manager about what celiac or GF is. Manager suggested we order the flourless chocolate cake, which is NOT gluten free.
Maria was awesome, she knew which options were gluten free and the food was fantastic. Glad we went, good food and AMAZING service from Maria.
Food was fine. Staff were friendly but it was SLOW. They were out of the Brown Rice Bolognese so I settled for a salad.
LAX terminal 4 location has limited menu but they have brown rice pasta and it is the only pasta they serve so reduced cross-contamination issues. Pasta hit the spot and actually quite good for airport food.
They think they understand Celiac, but don't. Their protocol for pizzas is all wrong. They use shared space, the same sauce and toppings as regular pizza. They swore by their technique so we tried it. Thankfully, Nima tested positive for gluten so it wasn't eaten. The chilli tested safe. The restaurant staff was not terribly understanding. We won't be back.
Items marked on the menu- salads and pasta. Staff seemed well informed. Yes
We stopped here for a late lunch on a trip to southern California. They certainly DO have gluten free options and I ordered a gluten free pepperoni pizza. I specifically asked for a gluten free crust and the server repeated back my order correctly. I'll also add that we were one of a small handful of tables on a Sunday afternoon, so being too busy should not have been an issue. When the server brought out the pizza, she again, specifically mentioned that it was gluten free. After having some of it, however, I realized that a gluten free crust is not this good :-) Needless to say, it was too late and I had enough of it that I knew I would be struggling to get over it for a few days. Ugh! These guys have gotten some pretty good reviews as far as being a decent place to get a gluten free meal. Not so in my case - either the server purposely misled me or was lacking in training in what gluten free meant. I looked at my receipt as I paid and noticed no charge for a gluten free crust, so I am sure the kitchen staff never knew what I needed. Proceed with caution on this one!
Couldn't have been more accommodating for my daughter with celiac. Pizza, pasta....excellent.
Overpriced small gf pizza with bland flavor. Minimal toppings. $18.00 rip off
I ordered 1 gf Hawaiian pizza( they only come in personal size). I was charged $18.00. I Obviously wanted top try this pizza as it seems gourmet for such a high price. When I recieved the pizza, it had 6 pieces of Canadian ham and 5 micro slivers of pineapples on top a lot of cheese. The taste was very bland. Nothing special. I took a picture of it to post, but I'm trying to figure out how to post it. Seem as though we get charged 3x's the amount for gluten free crust. What a rip off!!!
Great food but not celiac friendly I got sick from this food the first time I ate it
Gluten & dairy free place. I love it here!
I liked my pizza and my friends liked their food very much. We enjoyed the patio area on a quiet Sunday evening. Waitress was nice and helpful in telling me which pizzas to avoid (Thai, for example). But nearly all can be done on a gluten free thin crispy crust... For an extra $4! Seems a little high, but it was tasty. I would've never known it was gluten free! I had goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes & pine nuts which was mild but very good. Not bland like some other pizzas. Seems there's only one size of pizza which is enough for two. I'll be enjoying my leftovers tomorrow! They brew their iced tea (no mix) but not the lemonade so I skipped that. I think they can handle celiac needs for the most part. I try to avoid peak times at any restaurant and that usually helps.
I really like Sammys and have been to three locations. All are consistent with service and good food. Wish they would use the gf pizza crust for hummus plate. I'm giving 5 stars bc safe. They did forget the pepperoni in the pizza, and steak was slightly overdone. But overall very good.
Worth the trip. Great GF pizza for a tourist from Texas. Thanks.
Knowledgeable staff, lots of GF choices, and awesome pizza. Very nice, yet casual, decor. I highly recommend putting this on your list!
Have eaten here DOZENS of times and never gotten sick. LOVE this place!! Incredible staff, very knowledgeable regrading gluten-free and keeping it safe for Celiacs. Definitely recommend!
Really good pizza. The crust is better than most I've tried
Really delicious gluten-free pizza crust. It's corn-free too (if you're like me and also allergic to corn). Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Great place.
They have a ton of gluten free options. I heard once that the owner's daughter is gluten intolerant so he changed the menu for her. (great little story and I hope it's true!) their food is wonderful, and all the servers I've ever had are lovely and pleasant. Highly recommend.
Lots of GF choices and very clearly marked in menu (and togo menu!) - pizzas are great. The penne pasta and Greek salad were good. They also have huge portions (except the pizza) If ur looking for a yummy drink - don't get the watermelon or cucumber coolers, they were both not sweet.
This place is great. I told our waitress up front when ordering I was GF and requested that they are aware to not cross contaminate. I dont do dairy either so she helped me with choices to accommodate my allergies. The manager came over after order was placed to explain that they had specialty pizzas in oven so mine would go with theirs and would come out before they started rest of the order.(which was no bother) Pizza was delicious, Gf fresh veggie (no mozzarella) was delicious. it felt great to eat out. No issues afterwards :)) They cared and went to great lengths to ensure proper handling. This is definitely a great restaurant for us!
