Living around the block I've tried everything on the menu.... - Any pasta you get, you will be safe. They change the water / pot when you order. - I've had the pizza / bread sticks 3 times and got sick all 3 times. If you're celiac I would stay away from those.
Not Celiac friendly. I called ahead to check on their kitchen practices and they assured me they were very safe. Our server seemed very cavalier about notifying the kitchen of the allergy. I was sick before I even left the restaurant. Would not recommend. Also, GF breadsticks are just the GF pizza crust with nothing on them. Not worth it.
Despite reading numerous positive reviews of Tony’s Pizza, I have gotten extremely ill after eating a supposedly ‘gluten free’ pizza at this restaurant. I have not been this sick from gluten in a long time. While this restaurant is of high quality in general, I would definitely not be recommending it for people with celiac disease.
First clerk I worked with was clueless, so I almost left. But the girl with black hair and glasses was terrific. She told me they just started making a GF Detroit style pizza, so I got that. Extremely expensive (~$40), but man, it was good. Like others have said, look for the white box with no logo.
Ordered takeout from here tonight while on vacation. They must have given me the wrong pizza even though I put multiple notes about being celiac/gluten issues. I am not overly sensitive to small amounts but have severe reactions to regular gluten items (obviously). Horrible night!
So delicious! I got just a plain old pepperoni pizza (I’m boring) but it was so yummy. The crust was cooked perfectly. Only issue was that they were super busy. Glad we waited though-well worth it. You can also order to go at their place next door.
Best pizza we’ve ever had! Highly recommend coming here. Must try the artichoke joe gf pizza, it was by far the greatest tasting pizza we’ve ever tasted. A bit of a long wait, waited 40 minutes for table then almost another 40 for pizza, but was well worth it!
One of the best gf crusts I’ve ever had!!!!! We had the Cal Italia pizza on the gf crust. Amazing!!! Not sure about cross contamination because we aren’t that sensitive but the menu does state it’s a shared kitchen and there can be so if you are extremely sensitive, I’d ask further questions.
We ordered using Uber eats and our order arrived correct to our hotel room with two gluten free pizzas, gluten free breadsticks, and a regular pizza. One pizza we needed goat cheese instead of regular cheese. Seemed expensive as there were add on fees but then again we didn’t have to find parking in the rain and wait. The gluten free pizzas had limited items that could be put on them - use the Uber eats app not the menu online to order correctly. All was excellent. We were just glad they got the complicated order correct.
If you order a gluten free pizza for delivery, make sure it comes in a solid white box with no branding or anything on it. Otherwise you may eat a full slice before realizing the texture does not seem gluten free. When I called the restaurant to confirm, they were not very helpful or apologetic but did confirm if the box says Tony's on top, it is NOT gluten free. So now I'm waiting to get sick, have no dinner, and am out $30.
I very nearly skipped this place, feeling so over GF pizza and pasta...thank heavens I didn't. Totally incredible food, GF or otherwise. Ideal menu for four people to share: Italy salad, Jersey GF pizza, GF breadsticks, and the pesto GF pasta. Heaven!
They Make every effort to avoid cross contamination. Had GF pizza and GF bread sticks. Some of the best GF I have had. Did not get sick. Ask the waiter about your options. Very knowledgeable staff about celiac . Will go there again . Approximately 1 hour wait to be seated. Worth the wait. Second review, came back , pizza was amazing, did not get sick. Will come here every visit to the city. Was a Wednesday night 730 pm. Place was packed . One hour wait. Worth it!
Screw Chicago! Born and raised and still live there, but this is the BEST pizza gluten free or not! WOW! We live in the suburbs of Chicago and I think our pizza is better than the city of Chicago. But this was fantastic, something I'd make homeade myself. Don't miss this if you are gluten free and miss pizza!!!! Classic American with sausage is what I ordered.
Great pizza at a legendary spot. They cook the GF pizza in its own oven and state on the menu that they take cross contamination seriously. That said there is always a risk dining anywhere but this place has quality food and the GF Pies are right on the menu along with the rest for all to try.
Wow! LOVE the gf pizza with super tasty Italian Sausage. Our friend, a native SF, says this is the best ever and it is! I would decline the gf breadsticks next time- seemed liked jazzed up pizza crust. Great service, great food. Definitely going back!
