Very safe establishment and tons of options for gluten free. The pizza was good, but the other food we ordered was not good. I don’t know if it was an off day or what, but chicken wings were soaked with oil that tasted old-like it hadn’t been changed in years, other food was mushy and didn’t taste fresh. I don’t think I would go back again.

They have dedicated gluten-free kitchen. The owner is celiac himself. Little to no possibility for cross-contamination. The only restaurant I’ve eaten from and never had a reaction.

My favorite, best tasting gluten-free establishment I’ve ever tried.

Staff is very friendly and their award winning white pizza is delicious (available regular or gluten-free)

Amazing super safe food!
French fries were half frozen, and it was tiny pieces like the bottom of the bag. Chicken strip were extremely salty and cold. Meal was supposed to be GF. Horrible..
There "famous" GF mozz sticks were completely hollow, breading was horrible and extremely salty. Never again.
GF mozz sticks.   Amazing.
Love to eat here when we are in Florida after walking on the white sandy beach!!  Had the fish this

I have to write a review for this place because its selection of Gluten Free food is amazing. I am celiac, travel a lot and this is the only place I've found to get fried mozzarella! And they have a dedicated fryer AND kitchen space. I admit, I was skeptical, so I used my Nima to test both the mozz sticks and garlic bread and they came back 100% great! Gluten-free people rejoice! Staff is also super friendly.

I go to Vertoris every time I come to Florida. This time I tried the GF eggplant Parmesan which was to die for. We also had the New England clam chowder. My mother and brother are not celiac and they said it was the best pizza they’ve ever had. They also have a full showcase of gluten free desserts!

Lots of gf choices and a dedicated gf fryer. I’ve been coming here off and on for several years while visiting Sarasota. Never had a problem until a couple of days ago. Had french fries and quesadillas which I get all the time. I always stress gf and allergy. Unfortunately, I was severely sick within 3 hours! I even called the next day to see if a mistake was made using the wrong items or fryer. The person who got my call had no answer for me. New people working there and unfortunately a mistake was made. Sad.

The best gluten free options in the area. I highly recommend this place to anyone who has to be GF. The cheese sticks and garlic bread were delicious. Not to mention she has alot of dessert options that she has made. We met the owner and she is so sweet. I wish I could give her 10 stars! Thank you for having all of these options so I can feel like I am able to eat like the rest of my family.

I visit this place every time I go to the beach! It’s delicious food and I’ve never gotten sick! They immediately asked if anyone was Gluten Free or Vegan. Good service and amazing food!!! The meatball marinara was amazing! Meatballs were huge! And the fried mozzarella..to die for! We also got the three cheese pizza crust and it was the fluffiest GF pizza I’ve ever had! Try this little hole in the wall Pizza Place if you have the opportunity!

The service was fantastic and the food was incredibly delicious.

Being sandwiched between two large brand names stores in a shopping district, it blended in and was a little difficult to pick out from the road. But that’s the only nitpick I have from our experience.

Once we stepped inside, the waitress was quick to warmly greet and seat us at a table. She was patient and greatly accommodating; both in our orders and my father’s request to turn the music down.

The food was some of the best I’ve had; especially in the gluten free department. From appetizers to desserts, the menu has a whole page dedicated to GF. My mother got to have mozzarella sticks for the first time in 15 years, and for being GF they were awesome.

We will definitely be returning in the future to try more of their various desserts and pizza.

Oh my goodness we drove an hour to try this and we weren't disappointed. Friendly atmosphere was nice but the food was to die for. Hubby hasn't had eggplant parm in a decade since turning gf but tonight oh gosh, we'll be coming back for more, and often. The pizza crust was soooooo good, far better than the frozen stuff in the store and dominoes attempt at gf. Stop here and eat, you won't be sorry.

What a great experience! Don’t let the outside appearance sway you from going in. A total gem! They have a plethora of gluten free options - the most I have ever seen at any restaurant. Pizza, pasta, bread, desserts, etc. The owner, Nicole, took my order and confirmed that they take all the necessary precautions in the kitchen to avoid cross contamination and also have a dedicated fryer. She shared that she has family members who require gluten free options so this is near and dear to their heart. ❤ I had the fried mozzarella sticks, a meatball and mushroom pizza, and the peanut butter pie. I also took a seven layer bar home with me for another day. I felt great afterwards. I’ll definitely be going back. Thank you!

As we prepare for our upcoming vacation to Siesta Key, our entire family is looking forward to visiting our new favorite place to eat! We discovered this place last year and we could not be more satisfied. The family staff are very personable and friendly, and the gluten free options are incredible. We enjoyed several meals there with our family and everything was great, including the deserts. Our family of seven eat a STRICT gluten free diet and two of our group are highly sensitive to cross contamination. Not one issue! This is a quaint, unassuming pizza place, but what an absolute gem for anyone looking for great food from great people. Hint: Chicken Parmigiana Alfredo and Buffalo Chicken Pizza!

Ah.maz.ing!!!!! The food options, Esp for gluten free, are out of this world (vegan also). Full dessert case of awesome gluten free desserts (cupcakes bars and pies) and a FULL gluten free menu including stuffed pastas, fried food (separate fryer), bread, pizza and pasta. Food was very tasty and reasonably priced. Space inside is limited and it's in a strip mall area, but WELL worth having a meal here.

The GF Pizza is ridiculously expensive, especially when you realize they are using Udi's and Against The Grain pre-bought crusts. When my husband asked the owner if they were homemade or bought, he lied straight to our faces and said his wife made them and didn't know what was in them. I love the Against the Grain crust and I know without a doubt, that's what I was served. Don't get me wrong.. I'm fine with pre-bought crusts at restaurants, which BTW, explains the exorbitant upcharge, but I'm not OK with being lied to. How am I supposed to trust that you take the necessary precautions for cross contamination? Also the owner was extremely unprofessional and even though he was trying to make conversation with us, he used foul language the entire time and talked about how he steals cable with some box he has. I will never go back to this place! Sorry, not sorry!
