    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.

    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.

    Not celiac but I do react to gluten. Nice pizza and safe, but pricey. If you’re using an iPhone, the directions are a block off. Enter the street address in the maps.

    Pizza was good, crust was not as crisp as I like, but great taste. Though I am not celiac, I do react seriously and I had no reactions. I ordered the GF chocolate cake to go, and wished I hadn't. Two very little pieces of cake with some raspberry syrup and it was $10.

    Good gluten free menu. Crust made there, awesome crust. I would get the pizza just because the crust was so good. They have a good five-cheese pizza. It doesn’t have sauce. Many options for salads. Cool atmosphere and nice people.

    My son and I got very sick from the “gluten free” pizza. It really set us back. It was also so expensive for a gf pizza! It wasn’t celiac safe when we had it.

    Last time I ate here, they had taken the shrimp and grits off the menu. It was by far the best thing GF. I ordered a GF pizza and it was mediocre at best. They do have GF beer though.

    *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.

    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.

    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!

    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!!!

    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.

    Last 2 visits seemed better than before. They are improving with gf pizza. Now they have Redbridge beer. It's nasty. (If you're a Celiac, you know.) Nice try, but I would rather them carry local Duckfoot beer.

    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.
