I was to be in Worcestor for a wedding and contacted the restaurant through the website a week beforehand, as I have Celiac, and the online menu wasn’t clear to me, although it had been recommended. Since I couldn’t eat in, I needed to know exactly what was safe. The head chef personally contacted me back within six hours. Although it took three emails and me screenshotting their online menu to send to him to clear up the misunderstanding, once he saw the online menu was not up to date, he corrected it. He did let me know that certain pizza add-ons were more likely to be cross contaminated. Good to know. Only pizza can be made GF. No GF hamburger buns. When our order was picked up, the GF pizza was missing, at first out of a large order. The taste and texture was excellent and I was impressed by the chef’s attentiveness. It should be a lesson to others how important it is to contact a restaurant well ahead if you have Celiac.

Great GF pizza. Yes, they serve a lot of non-GF food but always take great care with pizza. I've never been sick here. Highly recommended. They cook it in a separate pan, separate utensils. I get the Red Hot Chicken pizza every time I go. Hot, cheesy, a little kick from the sauce. Great, now I'm hungry again. If you are at all curious about how they run the kitchen you can go to the take-out area and observe. Plus, beer! They serve Green's GF beer here.

The best GF pizza I've ever had! Many toppings to choose from....but Red Hots and house special are my favorite. Pizza gets 5 stars but gave 4 stars total due to fact that there is no other GF option besides pizza.

I love the Boynt! Never gotten sick from eating there in 20 years of pure Yum. I am very sensitive and vomit from gluten so I’m very driven to always be sure the food will be okay. So, this is the Best Pizza out there made GF!!! And I’ve also ordered fish with baked potato and veggie and never been sick, even tho they don’t “guarantee” those dishes wb GF. I just ask to have it cooked in a separate dish or in the oven. Never has a problem. Salads are awesome too. Their house Italian is GF. LOVE THE BOYNT!!!!!

I have had celiac since 2004 (highly sensitive) and have eaten the pizza at the Boyton hundreds of times and have NEVER gotten sick . The red hot chicken pizza is to die for and all the other pizzas are awesome too. I don't mind if pizza is the only choice ..since it is safe I am happy!

Only pizza GF! I am giving 4 stars based on a pizza place. This is the go to for gluten free. Lots of toppings and the crust is very very good along with the GF white sauce. No kids pizza so that really sucks but we had leftovers. Nothing else is gluten free... only pizza. But there is seafood and steak you could have.

I can't really even give it one star. Extremely disappointed. The only GF item they stand behind is their GF crust. They are NOT celiac friendly at all. I sat and watched everyone else eat. Shameful.

I've had A LOT of gluten free pizza and I can honestly say this is the best gluten free pizza in central mass. The problem with most GF pizza is that is stiff and not porous and the cheese and sauce don't meld together with the crust. Boynton pizza does not have this problem. If you have celiac, just make sure you are very clear with them that it is severe allergy.

I have had gluten free pizza there before and it was delicious-no reaction. This took place in the restaurant area. Buy today I decided to try and order online.When I got there the order did not go through, so I had to give my order to the man behind the counter in the pizza area. I said I wanted a gluten free pizza with pineapples and mushrooms. He said, "onion?" I said, "no, mushroom". After 10-15 minutes I received my pizza and left. When I opened the box on my way home it was a ham and mushroom pizza. I let it go that it was wrong because I was just happy it was gluten free. I ate 2 slices and started to feel like I was glutened. I have had a reaction all day. I called back and told them the order was wrong, which I was ok with but wanted to know if the pizza was still gluten free. The man said that they guarantee it gluten free but after I got off the phone I wondered if maybe I got the wrong pizza.

All of this said, all I have eaten today is a banana and strawberries so I know that it had to be the pizza.

Just be careful. I have come to trust people when they say it's gluten free but they are not the ones dealing with your reaction to gluten.

this place has the BEST gluten free pizza I have ever had. Their broccoli feta & onion pizza is absolutely incredible. The broccoli feta & onion is not only the best gf pizza, but the best pizza in general. I have dreams about this pizza. the toppings may sound weird together at first , but once you try them you will never go back to regular cheese pizzas. nothing compares !

My kids, a neighbor, and I ate lunch here after visiting the Ecotarium. We ordered three different pizzas and they were delicious. My kids' only complaint was low lighting. I was very glad the waitress explained that ONLY the pizzas can be truly GF. The pizzas are made in a separate kitchen entirely and all the pizza ingredients are kept in a separate fridge. So while there is a substantial menu for gluten-eaters, our menu is limited to pizza. Very tasty pizza. Yum. (For out-of-towners, like us, the parking & entrance is on the back. Don't spend your time trying to find on-street parking. Additionally, don't succumb to the temptation to park across the street at Sole Proprietor.)

The Boynton is a great place for a GF diner. I believe one of the chef's relations was diagnosed as celiac a long time ago, and they have had gf crust options for years. Not only do they have the crust, but they have a handful of specialty pizzas to order on the crust as well. They seem to be very safe about cross contamination, although they do make regular pizza there as well. Once I tried to get bacon on my pizza, and the server told me that I could have it, but that they can't certify it as GF so he wouldn't recommend it. I have no idea how bacon wouldn't be GF (unless it was bacon bits or something) but I appreciated the attention to detail.

The Boynton is one of those great places you can go with non-GF people and feel completely at home, and your friends/family will be happy too. They have a huge selection of beer and food for the "normals," and they have a decent number of gf beers and ciders for us. I used to eat here a lot prior to my diagnosis and always enjoyed it, but now it is at the top of my list. A really great choice.
