Several gf pasta options. They don't use the best GF pasta, but it's passable. There's an extra fee.

EDIT: My mom ate here and there was a piece of regular spaghetti in her Gluten Free fusilli dish. Celiac eaters beware!

Waitress was very helpful and asked the chef all of my questions to confirm which items could be made gluten free.

I ordered the gluten free flatbread. I ate three bites and started to feel ill. It was obvious that the kitchen provided the regular gluten version. I wouldn’t go back again.

This place was awful, the food felt like it had been heated instead of cooked. The gluten free pizza was the worst pizza I’ve ever had and I felt un-well after. I’ve eaten pizza at pizza my heart and even with their pizza I didn’t feel as uneasy as I did here. Save yourself the time and don’t eat here.

Talked to staff about pizza and cross contamination. The G/F pizza is cooked in the same oven as the wheat four pizza and the flour is all over. They couldn’t guarantee it would be G/F. That said I tried it and did not get sick.
