We went tonight to this establishment. We asked for a gluten free chicken pesto pizza and the anti pasta platter that supposedly had a gluten free option. The staff was not knowledgeable about what they had that gluten free. The pizza was more sauce then cheese or chicken and had no flavor. The anti pasta platter came to the table with a large pile of processed meat on top. The establishment was under the impression that if they do not serve the bread with the platter then it is gluten free.

Harder to eat here as a celiac. Girl at counter really could not comprehend what I was asking about to ensure a gf salad. Chef was knowledgeable. Had the gf pizza but didn't really like it.

Not for celiac! Girl that took my order was very young and didn't even seem to care that I had an allergy. After telling her twice (very nicely) to tell the chef about my allergy, I never saw her walk back to the kitchen and say anything. She just took the next order. Ordered a GF Caprese salad and it came out with a crostini on top and had to send it back. Don't have much confidence here and won't return.

Excellent pizza. Fresh ingredients, made to order. Separate oven, cooked in separate oven as well! Was told the pizza crust is almond based, and will hold an extra 3-4 toppings before it starts to break. AWESOME PIZZA...BEST ONE I'VE FOUND IN BIRMINGHAM!

Not for Celiac. I could see into their kitchen and there was flour everywhere. Cross contamination is a concern.

Ate there today. Explained GF, Celiac Disease & CC issues, girl was so sweet, but they're very new at offering GF, & a bit confused on what food items can contain gluten. Got the margarita pizza (GF), it tasted great, but I got so sick. Been paying for that pizza since! Wouldn't recommend for those sticking to GF diet out of medical necessity.
