The place looks amazing, but multiple staff members told me their two gluten free pizza options are guaranteed to have cross contamination. NOT SAFE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE ALLERGY. I decided to stick with their salad, and I was surprised that I was delicious. It’s a big salad too, so check it out if you’re in the mood for a cool atmosphere and a salad.

The pizza is overpriced but good. It’s not at all celiac friendly and I’ve stopped going.

After being recommended by a friend, I called to see if Satchel's had a gluten free pizza option. They said yes, there was a millet and flax seed crust. After looking at the menu, the pizza was labeled as "contains trace amounts of gluten" and the server said this was because of possible cross contamination in their kitchen or the bakery where they get the crust. After deciding to try it, I had one slice and was violently sick for several hours. Come to find out, glutenfreewatchdog.org says the Sami's Bakery crust they use contains 25-50% gluten, according to testing done on the product. In no way should this be considered "trace amounts", so if you have Celiac or are gluten sensitive definitely DO NOT eat the pizza. Very disappointed in the lack of information about what the crust actually contains and will not be going back.

I was pretty pleased with the gluten free option, though don't believe that it is celiac friendly. It is a good option for gluten sensitive people.

I recently went to Satchel's with my family. We saw the menu said the GF pizza wasn't fully GF ("trace gluten"). I was so sad, I spoke with the owner. (We didn't want to eat just salad for dinner, even though it was super delish.) He told me they had to put that on the menu because the kitchen definitely has wheat flour, and he'd hate for anyone be surprised. However, he told me they are VERY careful about the GF prep. His mother-in-law is celiac, and she eats there often, without any trouble. So I decided to take a chance. So glad I did! I can't handle even a tiny bit of gluten, and I was totally fine. I can't wait to eat there again. My advice is, be sure to notify your server about your needs, and they will take care of you. Yum!

Clearly Satchels is a "pizza joint" and the menu and staff are up front about the possibility of cross contamination. This was my first visit since my celiac diagnosis, and while I missed eating the pizza with the rest of my family, the staff took precautions (hand washing/clean gloves) to make sure my FABULOUS salad was not contaminated. I appreciated dealing with staff who understood my situation and who were well versed in proper protocol to reduce the possibility of contamination. I miss pizza but I will return because of the food I can have and the care the staff took. I did not get sick after eating there!

Salad was YUMMY but stop with that if your Celiac or sensitive to gluten. I was told by a friend their pizza was GF free. I should not have listened and read the menu instead. Menu does list traces of Gluten in their description of millet/flax pizza. I spent most of the night violently ill! Not worth the taste!

There is literally only one truly gluten free option. It's a salad, the only salad they have. I couldn't eat more than a few bites as the dressing was just way too sweet for me. Would not go back or recommend.

Three star rating for salad only. For non-GF folks, this place is awesome. The GF crust isn't actually GF (made in a local bakery, all of their supposedly GF products make me sick, even at home with no CC), so don't get that if you have Celiac or are highly sensitive. But they so have a pretty damn good salad, as far as salads go, if you can stand being around the sights and smells of so much deliciousness without indulging; for me it's torture but I do go with my husband sometimes. They also do have a really yummy GF cider (with alcohol ).

Would not recommend for someone with gluten intolerance/celiac disease. I ordered the "gluten free" crust - which although was delicious, was either not totally gluten free or was cross contaminated. Extremely sick all night. Will not be going back.
