I ordered a gluten free pizza and had no issues after eating. The crust was chewy... but being new to Gluten Free that may be the standard. 🤷🏻‍♀

Other than the crust the food was good, the service was fast!

Ordered gluten free pizza for delivery while at a hotel in the area. Pizza was good (not the best gluten free pizza we have had, but good). Was able to choose from a few of their “legendary” pizzas or create your own. No issues after eating. Would order from them again.

I assume it’s mostly kids doing the cooking who don’t understand the consequences of cross contamination. But I’m the kinda person that 1 doesn’t care 2 knows I’m taking a risk eating anywhere but home loll

Pizza is okay. Udis crust and they usually over cook it lol but pizza is pizza

It seems like the locations are all different on their gluten free protocols, but we won’t be going to our local one for gluten free pizza as my husband got sick after eating there

They are very knowledgeable on cross contamination. They can’t guarantee it won’t occur, but we have not gotten sick yet. The pizza is great! A little pricey, but thankful to know they are educated and take proper precautions.

Had a GF pizza delivered with a non-GF pizza. They told me over the phone that they keep everything separate. My sensitive celiac daughter liked the pizza and didn’t get sick. Automatic 5 stars from me!

Davannis pizza is delicious for sure. However, it is not a good option for celiacs. A disclaimer note is included with a gf order, so they aren't promising no CC. I have eaten here many times, but since stopping eating here, I don't feel sick anymore. I recommend for those who can handle cross-contamination, but not celiac friendly.

The GF pizza is one of the better ones out at restaurants. And it won't break the bank. My favorite is Pizza Luche, but it's spends.

Udi's GF crust. A nice, flavorful sauce on an Udi's crust. Nothing spectacular, but good.

I overheard two staff people talking as our pizzas came out of the oven. "No, don't put those pizzas on the rack. The gluten free pizzas go straight to the customers. That's the whole point... to avoid cross contamination." Well, somebody gets it!

I've ordered at least a dozen GF pizzas from here and have never had an issue. The pizza tastes amazing, just as good as any "normal" pizza, if not better! The crust tends to get a little too crunchy for my taste, but none the less a great pizza!

After pick up a new glasses for my daughter, then we have a dinner at Davanni's pizza at Arden Hills. After finished dinner, we went home, then my daughter realize that she left her new glasses at the restaurant. I went back to Davanni right away to check with the cashier, then he looks so quick at the drawer and he said that he didn't see the glasses. He even didn't check with the waitress who clean up the table that we just left about 20 minutes. My daughter so sad because she lot the new glasses that she just get 2 hours ago.

The pizza was good but not the best I've ever had. A nice amount of toppings. Would order again when we are back in town.

It is a very expensive gf option and is only Udi's crust. It isn't bad, but it's not very good either. I'm not sure how good their cross-contamination efforts are.

According to their website, it is just an Udi's 10 inch pizza.

Best GF pizza I've found anywhere. I wish it was less expensive as they don't actually make their own GF crust, but toppings are always generous and perfectly cooked.

Davanni's uses Udi's pizza crust. They have a separate preparation area and cook the pizza on a piece of foil to avoid cross contamination. Although it is a flour rich environment and they can't 100% guarantee there won't be any, they take reasonable precautions. I've not had a problem so far. The GF pizza is significantly more expensive, but GF crusts ARE 3 or 4 times as expensive even in the grocery store and every GF pizza I've seen in a restaurant has been pretty pricy. I do wish they'd carry some GF salad dressings, though. They have a couple good salads that are GF, but no dressings. You have to bring your own or take it home.

My family eats here often. As far as gf pizza goes, this is our FAVORITE! Delicious toppings, sauce and a crispy/chewy gf crust. It's also dairy free so my children can enjoy it (sans cheese on top). My only complaint is the workers are often slow and don't bring pizza out right away.

Thank you, Davanni's for offering a gluten-free crust! Yes it was expensive but it was delicious. It was a real treat for me to be able to have pizza. Other pizza places and sandwich shops will follow suit but it will serve you well to have been one of the gluten free pioneers!

Although Davanni's offers a gluten free crust, it is pretty unremarkable. They use a Udi's crust, the same one I can buy for a fraction of the cost at the co-op. Overall the GF pizza is nothing to rave about and the cost does not match the quality.

My understanding is that the dough for the gluten free pizzas is not made fresh. Which is why you can only get it in 10" pies. Good because it cuts down on cross contamination but bad because your paying more for pre-frozen premade pizza dough.

It comes in thin crust only, but all that aside the pizza itself was pretty tasty and its nice to sit and eat pizza at a restaurant with everyone else that is not GF.

Great pizza made in a dedicated area. Only available in one size and slightly more expensive than non GF pizza but it tastes just as good. Worth the extra cost and you can eat as a family all in one place.

Gluten free pizza made on seperate table and place in oven on foil to keep from cross contamination in the ovens, also seperate knives and untensils for cutting and moving the pizza. really tastey!

Ridiculous pricing. $14 for a 6" pizza. WILL NEVER GO BACK. THAT IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF MY SITUATION. No salad dressings for GF salads
