This place is great!! I have celiac disease and went to USC. Having Maddios across the street from my dorm was my saving grace (I got gluten the 3rd day I was in college from the dining hall!). They are very knowledgeable and incredibly safe. There's a lot of transparency because you can watch them make it. I'm extremely sensitive and this is one of the only pizza places I still trust!
Celiac here! I was eating here with a colleague and I requested the gluten free crust and my colleague got a regular crust. The employee behind the counter said he was going to prep mine first to avoid CC as much as possible and immediately changed his gloves. He prepped my pizza on a newly sanitized tray rather than directly on the counter and used "allergy" toppings, which are kept under the counter in sealed containers so that flour particles don't get in them. The pizza was also baked on a separate tray. As an added benefit, this was easily the best gluten free pizza I've ever had - and I've tried them all! 10/10 highly recommend.- just wish there were one closer to home!
The pizza was excellent and the staff was incredibly attentive to GF needs. They even took the trouble to come outside and save us from paying for parking meters on a weekend afternoon (nothing to do with gluten, but a great indication of caring for customers as people--kudos for that). Separate GF stores of toppings for the pizza too.
Very very good Gluten free pizza. Highly recommend!
Very knowledgable staff. Most toppings are not gluten free but I could still get a pizza with gluten free chicken and buffalo sauce on top.
Really good gluten free pizza. Only disappointment was no gluten free sausage or pepperoni. They are very conscientious about contamination.
Great tasting pizza and fun place to eat. Only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 is because many of their toppings are not GF. For example the pepperoni is not GF. So just be warned to check topping GF list before building your pizza. Flagged as not celiac friendly because they did not appear to use different pizza trays or cooking space.
Went to Uncle Maddio's after seeing it on this app! I have not had pizza since being gluten free. Wow! Not only was the pizza delicious, but the staff was friendly and knowledgeable about food allergies. Will be returning often!
We stopped here on a road trip through the area. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about their policies for avoiding cross contamination. My celiac three year old loved her pizza. It was one of the best gf crusts we've tried. This place was very family friendly. We would stop here again if back in the area.
Amazing, they know what they are doing. Go there if you want great servers very knowledgeable about food allergies
Delicious pizza with tons of GF toppings. Staff is trained about cross-contamination. Great lunch spot close to campus.
This place is amazing. We don't live in Cola but have to be at the children's hospital often with my little boy. My husband has to run and find me gluten free food daily which is difficult. This pizza was amazing and they even sent me a free gluten free dessert when they learned we were in the hospital. Most importantly, it tasted great and I didn't get sick. They are very knowledgeable and careful. I will eat there again for sure!
The gentleman who waited on us explained to me how they do things (they change their gloves, different pans, utensils, etc). When I told him I also have a dairy allergy he was able to let me know what else I couldn't have on my pizza. This is one of the few places I have been that I felt confident in the abilities of those who made my food. We live over an hour away but we will be back again!!
Had a horrible experience with gluten free pizza about 5 years ago so I was taking a risk by going here but their pizza was delicious!! really wish I had known about this place sooner!
Our favorite pizza place in Columbia. They are very careful to provide gluten free pizza and they do everything right on front of you (which is a plus in my book).
New favorite pizza place!!!! They have very gluten educated and friendly staff, and their food is delicious. They have their menu marked with gluten free options- they have gluten free pizza dough, most of their salad dressings and pizza sauces are gluten free, they have gluten free meats marked, and they have a gluten free dessert! They even had a separate spinach bag so that there isn't cross-contamination. Also, they have a take and bake option, which is great.
The pizza here is great. We ordered 3 different pizzas and did not have any reaction by our one family member that is Celiac. Just be sure to let the staff know and they can help you out.
What a great find. All the reviews were spot on. tried the bbq chicken pizza and it was delicious. My non GF family loved the food too. The staff was friendly and so courteous. Wish there was one in PA
There are so many unknowledgeable restaurant staff out there when it comes to gluten free, but not at Uncle Maddio's Pizza. I was so impressed! Staff were very knowledgeable and explained to us every step they take to prevent cross-contamination with wheat. They are very thorough. The pizza was completely gluten free. Will definitely go back.
The staff was so knowledgeable and explained/showed me every step they take to prevent cross contamination. The pizza was amazing and service was wonderful. Will definitely be back, highly recommend!
Yummy! Loved the BBQ chicken pizza
Best gluten free pizza crust in town! Staff is very knowledgable about gluten free toppings as well. You can even have a "take and bake" pizza prepared. We will definitely be back.
great pizza!! best pizza gluten free pizza around. they ensure for no cross contamination. my husband loves the regular pizza too. great price, not over priced for the gf!
careful and knowledgeable staff and very welcoming
Great GF pizza. Staff used separate containers of toppings. Even have a GF dessert option.
Pizza was really good with a wide variety of toppings to choose from. The staff took our need for gluten free seriously and changed gloves and used separate utensils. Very impressed!
Amazing experience. Staff super knowledgeable. Cleaned off everything and prepped separate, cooked separately...love the care they took. *went back bbn in today and didnt hear them call for an allergy and I said something. The manager said he heard my order and was going to take care of it. Trust them!
Wow! So impressed! I told them gluten free crust and he immediately changed his gloves and asked me to come over to the allergy end of the counter. They have a completely separate gluten free surface and gluten free toppings. He didn't leave my pizza from start to finish so it was sure to be safe. I didn't even have to ask, he just did it. On top of that, the pizza was definitely one of the best GF pizzas I've ever had! I think I'm in love! Be sure to sign up for rewards, you get a free pizza when you do.
I’d give 10 stars if I could. Every time I go, I make sure to thank the workers because out of all of the restaurants I’ve been to since being diagnosed, they make sure the food is 100% GF. They’re amazing at cleaning the prep area (there is not a designated GF area, but the shared space is cleaned very well), the gloves are changed, new toppings are used from the back, the GF pizza is placed in the oven by itself and all of the workers are in communication that the pizza is GF. It’s the protocol that should be used every where, but rarely is. These people do it with a smile. I’ve eaten here several times and have never been ill. We love this place and will continue to go back!
I have only ordered online, but they have the best gf pizza I have ever had.
Great place. They changed their gloves and had a dedicated gluten free place to make the pizza. It was delicious! Soooo delicious! Staff was delightful and showed me all that they do to make the gf pizza!
Andre’ is amazing. Entire staff took the time to take our allergy seriously! Pulled ingredients from the bottom. When she realized she made a mistake, she made it right! Great staff, great product, can’t wait to come back!! Thank you!!!
They had gluten free crust that was awesome! They changed gloves when making it. I will note that they didn’t pull ingredients from a separate area so I would caution if you are celiac due to cross contamination. Overall, we were very happy with this restaurant!
They use the same Pizza Peel to get the GF crust out of the oven as all of the other pizzas, and use the same cutter to slice the pizza as all of the others. Do unfortunately if you are very allergic to wheat/gluten or have Celiac, this may be risky.
My son and I are both GF. They let me read the label for the GF flour they use for the crust and it fit our restrictions. Great pepperoni pizza!
Okay, St Pete, let's keep this place around! Delicious pizza, incredible topping choices, extensive sauce options. This is the first time I've not missed regular pizza! They are very careful with prep in a separate area and the two individual GF pizzas we got were amazing. Give them lots of business so they never leave us!
Best pizza I've had since going gluten free! Clearly labeled menu so I could easily tell which toppings were safe. Once I told them I had an allergy they prepped it in a completely different section, did gloves changes and unlike the previous post said.. they did have all the toppings separated. They actually opened a brand new package of prosciutto for me too. I'm one happy camper!
It's nice to have a place that we can go to with friends or family where everyone can order their own individual pizzas..... and that my kids with celiac can NOT feel any different! Pizzas are good.... have nice variety of toppings! My kids haven't gotten sick here.... yet..... but BIG chance for cross contamination.
Absolutely delicious! I'm from out of state and it's hard to find gluten free options at times - great find!!
