I had the best experience. If you go, ask for Armando. He was so kind and took my allergy very seriously. He talked to the staff to assure the food would be safe for me. I’d highly recommend this place. I even ate the pizza for breakfast the next day. No issues.

Armondo was a complete doll! I came on a recommendation (from here) and he did not disappoint! The pizza was amazing!! He went over things I couldn't have to make sure I knew that even if it isn't stated it is likely not ok. When I say above and beyond is an understatement....

I have eaten at many Girodano’s mentioning I have celiac and have gotten sick everytime. That was until I went to Cicero location. I told the waiter I wanted the gluten free pizza bc I have celiac and his response was “yeah that’s pretty much what it’s for” so I was hesitant and figured I would get sick. I ordered the spinach artichoke feta pizza and it was delicious. I also had 0 gluten symptoms. Haven’t tried the gf pasta but it looked very good.

They do NOT have GF DEEP DISH. Only GF pizza is small, thin crust. The staff did not think other locations had deep dish either. Lou Malnati’s does have GF deep dish at multiple locations nearby, if that’s what you’re searching for. :((( Update after eating the pizza: the crust was super burnt and looked like cardboard. Toppings slid right off. Gluten-eating individuals with me enjoyed their pizza but will chose Lou Malnati’s in the future for my sake, and the better service we experienced there!

We called first before ordering delivery. Enjoyed the BEST gluten free pizza (thin crust) with a fresh Greek salad. No issues at all with food.

Caution! Unfortunately I did not have a good experience here and was sick shortly after eating. They expressed caution that they can’t guarantee against cross-contamination, obviously that’s any place that isn’t dedicated to Gf but I saw the great reviews and went with it. Just had a simple pizza with tomatoes and green peppers. The pizza wasn’t even great and the toppings will slide right off. Look for safer options if you have celiac and are super responsive like me.

The pizza was amazing! Probably the best gluten free pizza I’ve had. The portion of pizza was bigger than I anticipated, since gf pizza usually isn’t big. Ordering was easy as all the gluten free items were marked on the menu.

They have a homemade GF pizza crust. It is the best GF pizza I have had in 10 years. The kitchen cannot guarantee there is no cross contamination and I am pretty sensitive and did not get sick. I would definitely go back. They also have GF Pasta and salads.

They have a gluten free thin crust pizza which I ordered and didn't get sick. The crust wasn't really that good but it was still an okay pizza. Pretty expensive for it's quality though ($25) but at least the pizza was big in size.

They do have GF pizza and GF pasta but I was told neither were celiac safe. The pasta is cooked in same water as regular pasta. I had a feeling, coming to a big pizza place like this, that this would be the case so I’m not super disappointed but is still kind of a bummer. I hate when they label everything GF but it’s really not. Ended up getting the Greek salad

Considering my jet picked me up and my African American limo driver who calls me sir drove me to this restaurant after I said "you know the spot" I thought I'd have a better experience. First of all the owner greets us and says my table is ready. Can you say creepy? Then for no reason at all he's lurking between me and my girlfriend, man handling these tomatoes and starts ranting about some 30 year olds fresh ingredients as he holds up his grimey tomatoe like he's the Hamlet of pizza.

Then I got the runs. https://youtu.be/JA5pOoeUQTc here's my experience cought on camera.

Pizza tasted ok but I was ill and the place has massive contamination issues. I had a seat that could see into the kitchen and the gluten free pizzas were cut with the same tools and because the place is so busy, there were pizzas stacked up on top of each other including gluten free

Gluten free pasta and pizza what more can you ask for!! I ordered the bbq bacon chicken pizza and it was amazing!! The bbq sauce is a bit sweet so if you are looking for something more Italian tasting I would go with the regular sauce, but it is still delicious. Thin crust was suggested by the server but they do have deep dish gluten free as well. Everything is made fresh in house every order so our pizza took 45 minutes but well worth the wait!! So yummy!!

FYI I just called about the GF pasta I wanted to confirm that it was cooked in a separate pot. The hostess confirmed with the kitchen that they don't cook the pasta separately, however they would upon request. Be safe out there.

They menu has items labeled GF and it lists a GF thin crust. Though not listed on the menu they have a GF pan crust as well, which I had. The pizza taste was fine, but the crust was so tough that I could barely cut it. Not sure if that is typical or if my pizza was over cooked.
