We were looking for gluten free pizza AND a dog friendly place and they fit the bill. Lady greeted us with a friendly attitude and directed us to outdoor seating. There were only 2 other customers in the place. Apparently they were short staffed because waitress was doing several jobs. The cook messed up our non gf pizza order and brought us dirty plates. She claimed it was stained but they were dirty. The gf pizza crust looked made from scratch and was thin and crunchy. The sauce wasn't all that great. It was just ok. We were starving so first two pieces were good and then the 3rd was not so great. Husband said he enjoyed the gluten pizza. I would not go back to this place or recommend them until they get more employees.

Pizza was great. Ordered both gf and non-gf items. My daughter with celiac did not get sick, so confident that there was not cross contamination. Person taking order was knowledgeable and honest about options. We plan to try some of the pasta items later in the week. They are doing carryout and delivery during Covid. Calling your order in saves a lot of time.

You definitely get everything you pay for. The portions are very generous and the food is absolutely delicious. The noodles were cooked perfectly and the sauce was pure perfection!

Pizza was very disappointing - very mushy/gummy except for the outer 1 inch. I cut off this edge and pushed the ingredients onto this edge to eat. Then very tasty. Left 1/2 the pizza - it wasn't worth taking home. Next day tried the fettuccine alfredo with chicken. I asked for extra sauce since this was a take-out order and GF pasta tends to suck up sauce. This dish was great! They have lots of other options to try. Service was great!

I went based on other reviews by now I see most are over 2 years old, and apparently the place has gone downhill. I called about 45 min before arriving to see what Gluten free options they had. At first they said water . ... just joking I thought, but in reality that was about it. When I ordered my gluten free pasta dish the waiter said oh think we are out of gluten free pasta 😳. He went to check and they were indeed out. Then we asked about gluten free pizza., again he was not sure they had that. He came back after checking and said yes we do. But it was a big disappointment for . The pizza crust was burned and mediocre at best. Have had much better gluten free pizza out of a box. Also the tea was horrible. We traded it in for water. Other patrons were sending there teas back as well.

This place was amazing. The food was delicious and the atmosphere relaxing and Italian. I had a thin crust gluten free pizza and living all of my life having gluten free Philadelphia or New York pizza this was by far the best I ever had. I can't wait to go back and try the pasta. The server was very knowledgable and had so many great suggestions. My kids are not gluten free and they loved they pasta.

Great place for safe Gluten Free pizza. One of the best crusts I've had and the toppings rocked! The service was fabulous and the atmosphere was great. It is a small place so go early or be prepared to wait. But it is worth it. They prepare the GF pizza is a separate area.

Gave them a 3 star. First visit in May was great. Got GF pizza to go. It was awesome! Went twice this week to eat in, first time they said they were out but would have some the next day so we left. Came back next day and was told it would be a few weeks but they had gf pasta so decided to stay. GF pasta was under cooked, sauce was bland and to make it worse, the waiter was NOT friendly. Will Probs try another place next time.

One of the best gluten free pizzas I've ever had! Service there sucks though so I would get it to go and when they say 20-25 minutes, they mean 45 minutes. I'm a local here and this happens almost every time I either eat there or get the food to go!

Was great to find a place with gluten free pasta. The pasta was really good, but they were out of the gluten free dough for pizza. Wait was long, but it was at 5 on a Friday night. Want to go back and try the pizza.

By far the best GF pizza I have ever had! Only part of our take out order was ready when we arrived, so we were offered a drink while we waited. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend!

Wow, pretty amazingly good gluten free pizza! We ate here while vacationing at the beach because we read that they have gf pizza. It was sooo yummy! The crust was very tasty. We got the veggie pizzas and they had plenty of toppings as well. Salad was good too. And the service was excellent! We'll definitely be back here next time we're in the area!

We've eaten here several times this summer on our weekend beach getaways. The pizza sauce and toppings were the best we've had GF. The pasta and sauce were also very flavorful. Prices were reasonable. The restaurant is very plain but service was great and they were very GF knowledgeable. My son is a Celiac and T1D. I am now GF by choice for 3 months.

As far as I can tell, all the pasta and all the pizza is available in GF. The prices weren't cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but the pizza I ordered was AMAZING. Friendly staff, but the restaurant itself is actually pretty small. They also weren't open when I first stopped by at 11 am, even though it claims they are open by then. Normally, I would rate this restaurant a 2-3 star, but the quality of the food more than made up for it.
