Ordered a gluten free pizza, they sent me a gluten one because the chef “didn’t notice”. It looked too nice to be gluten free and didn’t have a sticker on it so I rang to check. They also put the gluten free dips in the same box as a a gluten pizza. They were apologetic but I wouldn’t trust them.

One of the most humiliating experiences I've ever had as a coeliac. I went here with friends but was ASKED TO LEAVE because it wasn't safe and they were very nervous that I would get sick because of the flour IN THE AIR and coating all surfaces, plates, glassed etc. I wouldn't eat here if you paid me. They did have a salad on the menu that seemed marginally safe but I was told it would have cross contamination. Their GF pizza bases aren't recommended for coeliacs because they use the same ovens and utensils.

Got a take away GF pizza. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable. Separate prep area and baking trays. Can't say 100% free from CC ad always but staff really on it and had no problem. lovely pizza no CC and I'm very sensitive to Gluten. definitely going back using again or going to another Franco Manca.

2nd time trying Franco Manca and same result- lovely GF pizza no CC They can't guarantee 100% no CC as always but have separate prep area and use separate trays etc... I'm very sensitive and again no problems at all.

Will be going back - excellent pizza and also had the garlic dip!

Staff very helpful and knowledgeable-can adapt most things on menu to GF.

Not able to accommodate GF. Their dough is ‘gluten free’ but prepped in the same areas as regular dough with no space for prep elsewhere. Might be okay for an intolerance but hard for coeliacs

Though their gluten free bases are fine, you should not eat here if you have coeliac disease. All pizza, gluten free or no, is cooked on the floor of the same oven.

They distinguish between celiacy and intolerance. For intolerance best pizza in two countries, both gluten and gluten-free. Base is made elsewhere, but cannot guarantee contamination. All pizzas can be made with this base

I have celiac and they could not accommodate me at all. They don’t have a separate area to make the pizza, even though they have a GF crust option. And there’s so much flour everywhere, so there would be so much cross-contamination. I am really thankful they were up front and honest about that though.

The menu said the dough was 100% gluten free but they couldn’t guarantee a flour free environment, then when I asked they said that they do everything in the same environment, even baking the gf pizza in the non gf oven. I don’t even understand why they put gf in the menu if they cook everything in the same oven. That is not gluten free

Terrific experience. Gluten-free bases are close to their sourdough cousins. Our whole family was able to enjoy delicious pizza, and our son could enjoy a good dairy-free cheese too. Staff to great care to check if our son was celiac or intolerant.

They recommended I eat somewhere else as a celiac. They cook everything in the same oven and only clean it once a week. They don’t have separate trays for GF pizzas to be cooked on. Soooo they have GF dough but not a way to make it safely for celiacs.

They have bases from Bocconicini Bakery gluten free bakery here. They have a cross contamination warning in the menu so this is not good for coeliacs but ok for gluten intolerant people. They supervisor came to double check the order when I mentioned the gluten free base. They also came back to advise a specific topping (truffle pesto) has gluten in it. After that they did actually accidentally bring to the table a gluten pizza but the waiter swooped before I ate it (I actually said to my friend 'this looks too puffy to be a gluten free pizza'!) and brought us our gluten free pizzas shortly after. Base was good, bit dry on the edges but they have chilli and olive oil on the table you can douse it with. Other toppings were great, I had the Cantabrian anchovy pizza with capers and olives. Wouldn't trust these folks with your life but fine for intolerant and if you are vigilant. Would return and eat this pizza again.

I tried to order a gluten free pizza but they informed me that they would not be confident in serving it to me as I am a coeliac and they told me cross contamination was highly likely.

After speaking with the manager, she informed me that my only options were the salads. My colleague then asked if I could have any of the starters, to which she said yes, and gave me the allergen book.

I saw a couple of starter that were gluten free, one of which had bread on the side, which I asked for it to be left out.

Once ordered, I watched the waiter dump the bread off the plate before serving the dish to me. I explained this to the manager and asked for a new one, which they did provide.

Overall, the experience made me feel like a burden and the staff felt rather unwelcoming towards my requests.

As a coeliac you should avoid. They do have a gluten free pizza base, that according to my boyfriend tastes amazing, but they cook everything in the same pizza oven without any protection for the gf pizza. They even use the same spatula and everything, so there will be wheat flour all over your base. Maybe something for people that can have traces, but otherwise definitely not.

All pizzas can be made gluten free for an extra £2.25. All pizzas are very reasonably priced so paying the extra money isn’t too annoying.

The pizza was delicious and a very good size.

Any pizza can be put on a gf base - from Antonella Bocconcini Bakery - costs £2.25

Cheese can be replaced with VioLife vegan cheese

Had to ask for list of allergens but it only gave details for complete pizzas and not individual toppings - so had to use common sense.

No gf beer but did have cider

We were going to eat here, so checked how they are preparing the pizza. When we heard that it is not baked on a separate tray but just like the normal pizza in the oven, we didn’t stay.

I’d say it’s probably not suitable for coeliacs.

Definitely not celiac friendly. Pizzas are made in the same oven. The gf crust is incredible, but on both pizzas I got the toppings were nasty and the sauce was weird. One of my friends (not gluten free) with severe allergies to dairy and eggs also got really sick here, despite being assured it was safe, so it doesn't seem like they understand food allergies in any form.

Although gluten-free bases are available for any pizza, the waitress was very explicit in explaining that the kitchen has wheat flour everywhere so cross contamination is inevitable in all dishes, even salads. The chef is basically covered in wheat flour.

This place is amazing! We have been here twice in the past 3 days. They offer THE BEST gluten free pizza crust I have ever had. And their pizza sauce, YUM. It’s not a dedicated gluten free place, but I never got sick. The waitresses seemed to know what they were talking about and understood the seriousness of a gluten allergy.
