Everything in the menu can be made Gluten Free if you notify them ahead of time.

However! They do have a sign out in front of the register that states they cannot guarantee no cross contamination so if you have Celiacs they want you to be aware.

We came here to eat, my daughter and I both had gluten free Mac and it was Delish! My son did a calzone (not GF) and said it was pretty solid.

We’d come back. I didn’t get sick,l and it doesn’t take much gluten to leave me feeling like death.

Well be coming back!

Ordered a GF calzone, and two regular calzones. The GF was clearly marked on the box. The GF crust was a good texture and flavor, and my daughter said it was just as good as the regular. All were filled with a very generous amount of cheese, and with two flavorful dipping sauces. We ordered a regular size chopped salad which was enough for 3 of us, and it was fantastic. The dressing tastes like Hidden Valley Ranch made fresh with buttermilk.

My only concern is that the GF calzone had a lot of flour on it, ostensibly to roll out the dough. I can tell a difference between regular dough and GF dough, but I can't tell the difference in plain flour. So hope the calzone was rolled in GF flour! I will find out soon enough.

I ate here for the 1st time and the food was good. I had a gluten free pepperoni/mozzarella/green pepper/black olive calzone. I would have enjoyed all of the ingredients to not be in one spot though. I didn’t like biting all green peppers...lol. I had the gluten free apple bacon Mac and cheese. It was delish! I would visit again.

My celiac boys have eaten here happily multiple times with giant grins on their faces. Something about calzones makes them feel like they’re eating like normal teenagers. Highly recommend!

From what I understand, the restaurant’s owner’s father has Celiac.

They can make both calzones and the Mac n cheese gluten free. It’s made in a separate area.

When we picked up our food, we did have to ask which basket was actually gf (we couldn’t tell!)

Love this place! The calzones are delicious, and I love the macaroni there! This is one of my fav places to go because it has yummy bread stuff that’s celiac-friendly. This restaurant is deli-style (which is iffy, I know) order up front, can see them make it down the line, then go and pick it up at the counter. But they have a separate little area in the back of the kitchen with a dedicated oven for the gluten free macaroni & calzones. Again, the food is delicious and I’ve always felt very safe eating it. Would highly recommend this cute local place!

Best calzones ever! I'm one of those celiac people who gets violently ill if even the smallest contamination. This is one place I don't even have to worry about. You might want to call ahead if you have a large gluten free order to check they have enough. I tend to take unbaked ones home since it's a 2.5 hour drive. Yes it's that good!!

This was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. As soon as I walked in, I felt confident that I would be fine. I had the chicken pesto calzone and traditional mac and cheese. Both tasted great and and the expected discomfort from simple transference was not felt. They re-gloved and operated in a controlled environment. My meal took longer than my non-celiac peers, but not by much. I plan on going back after the new year.

So delicious & safe! I have Celiac disease & am very sensitive to cross contamination. I got the mini combo with four cheese mac & cheese & the buffalo chicken calzone. Lots of food for the price, plus the combo comes with a free fountain drink. I will be back!

I had the gluten free Mac daddy calzone and gluten free meat lovers calzone and both were fantastic! Be sure to tell them gluten free. I am highly sensitive and get sick with just a crumb. These guys know what their doing! I will be going back next time I'm in town.

This place rocks! My husband loves the food and I wish we didn't move away from there! Just make sure to call ahead to make sure they have gluten free dough made for your calzone.... Or if it's early enough you can earn them when you will be in and they will get some ready for you! Fantastic options for both calzones and macaroni and they are extremely aware of cross contamination!

I had a bad experience at The Calzone & Macaroni Co. After telling the cashier twice that my calzone needed to be gluten free and have no cheese on top, I was brought a calzone with cheese and gluten! I scraped off the cheese and ate more than half! I thought after the first couple of bites it wasn't gluten free and asked the cashier if it was and she assured me it was gluten free. However she came back after 10 minutes and after I had eaten the majority of it to say it wasn't! They were very kind to me afterwards and completely refunded me, made me a new one that was gluten free and gave me the number of the manager. They were very apologetic of their mistake but mistakes like these at facilities that claim to be celiac friendly are very serious and profound. The gluten free calzone they gave me was very good, and they were very sorry but it was not worth the horrible allergic reaction I got after their mistake that could have easily been avoided if they had just listen to me the first 3 times.

One of my all time favorite gluten free places! Where else can you get gluten free calzones and macaroni? The employees here are fantastic, so friendly, they actually know me by name...maybe that means I come here to often, but I don't think there is any such thing! If you are in the area, come by...it's fantastic!

Gluten free macaroni, pizza, and calzones! It says on the board to pre order 1 hour early, but they had some gf stuff available. Dough is a little crunchy, but the calzone was really good. The cashier said she was celiac and they are very careful if you need them to be.

I've been here many times & have never had a problem. There is a separate gf kitchen space. Lots of gf options, but i think the calzones & macaroni are the best (& they should be since that's their name). Occasionally they're out of gf pasta or dough, but never both at the same time. Staff is very knowledgeable too.
