I’ve loved their food for years, but it seems they’re not doing enough to manage cross-contamination. I had a bad systemic reaction the last time I had one of their GF pizzas (tomato/basil/mozzarella).
Their precautions that I know of: pre-made crust on its own pan. Shared kitchen, shared utensils (e.g. for tomato sauce), shared oven.
— Not very
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
I was comfortable with their cross contamination precautions but it didn’t sound like they have a dedicated gluten free kitchen area. GF pizza crusts are purchased from another vendor.
The reason for low stars is because of the taste. Toppings were decent but the crust is one of the poorest I’ve ever had. Reminds me of a Domino’s cardboard box taste and texture kind of a crust but with a very high price point. Clearly others loved it though so maybe they changed their crust or perhaps it’s just not my kind of pizza.

Staff was very careful to prevent cross contamination. Very tasty... reviewed too soon I guess. Sick as heck. Some kind of significant cross contamination. Sadness. I loved this place.
Returned another time, had no problems on the second visit. So, this place is hit and miss for celiacs.
GF pizza was yummy. I highly recommend the artichoke dip. They offered gf bread to go along with the appetizer(which was just a plain pizza crust). We ordered appetizer and 14” gf pizza. Plenty for two people and left overs. Would definitely visit again.
I am celiac and have ordered gluten free pizza from here. I know gluten free dough is hard but theirs get really hard quickly. I can't say if they have a dedicated space for gluten free pizza. The toppings we're good but didn't love the crust.
Patxi’s Pizza has gf thin crust. Knowledgeable servers reviewed the process and assured us it’s safe (with usual caveats about not being a gluten free kitchen). We had vegan gf thin crust cheese and gf vegan classic veggie thin crust. Tested crust and sauce with Nima tester and it passed. Pizza tastes great too.
I know someone who works here and they told me the gluten free pizzas do not have a separate space. They share the same spot in the oven cooking with the other regular pizzas. Wouldn’t recommend if you are celiac or have a severe gluten allergy
Started of promisingly but my Coeliac wife was served a regular Gluten containing base after ordering GF and telling the server she was Coeliac. If you do eat here double check when your pizza comes out!
I do not recommend this location. I asked several questions, and was not satisfied with their answers. The 3 people I talked to didn't know what celiac was, and they use the same cutter for GF and regular pizzas. They said they wipe it off in between with a rag, but when they held up the rag, it was covered in flour.
Best gluten free pizza I have found. Tastes more like they make it themselves. A lot of pizza places obviously buy the same crusts from somewhere that are..meh. Now if Patxi’s can only make their deep dish GF.... sigh, I can dream.
Great gf pizza and caesar no croutons with anchovies. The bottom of the crust looks like the closest thing to glutened pizza I've seen and it is light, not too chewy and the end bits are tasty. It's a beer and wine place but they have Angry Orchard, so life could be worse.
Keep in mind that you are in San Francisco and things. just. move. more. slowly. here. I asked for a small ramikan of marinara with my pizza. It took 22 minutes to reach me. If I wanted it cold I could have gotten it after about 10 minutes. Apparently, they dont have a large pot of the bubbling goodness in the back. So. Ok. But 22 mins? Not sure why it was that hard and certainly a reasonable ask given it's a pizza joint. That said, the pizza is really good if you are seeking gf pizza in SFO. Def in my top 3 thus far.
The ambiance is laid back and neighborhoody. This is not on a main drag. Come along or with a party. It is a family-friendly establishment.
I called ahead and found out they buy their GF crust pre-made (so its not made in the kitchen with the rest of the gluten pizza) The GF pizza I got was excellent, and I didn’t get sick from eating there.
The gf pizza is delicious! The homemade crust was crunchy and tasted great! I have celiac and have been here several times now with no problems. Gluten free options are clearly marked on the menu and the wait staff is very knowledgeable.
Love Patxis! Delicious gluten-free pizza - now offered in two sizes - and they’ll even serve the artichoke dip with gluten-free pizza crust if requested (to substitute the crostinis). They also have Angry Orchard Cider. Love their food, friendly and prompt service and great place for lunch, dinner or to catch a sports game.
The staff had great knowledge of what is gluten free. What I loved most is that my husband is allergic to dairy and they had dairy free cheese. It’s been a long time since he was able to have cheese on a pizza.
Had a slice of gf pizza delivered to a birthday party. Cherry tomato and spinach pizza was delicious (even when a little cold) and I didn’t get sick! Next time I’ll eat more slices!!
Paxti's actually takes care now to say that they do not prevent cross-contamination. I used to be able to eat here without noticable side effects, but the last two times I became incredibly sick. However, I have increasingly become more sensitive to low amounts of gluten. I wouldn't risk it anymore and would encourage anyone who gets severe symptoms to stay away.
Pizza was great! The waitress told me the gf pizza is cooked on a separate rack from the "normal" pizzas. They can't guarantee no cross-contamination, but basically no restaurant wants to unless they're dedicated gf anyway.
Loved this place! The service was excellent - my daughter forgot to mention that she needed her pizza to be GF and our server could not have been nicer about it. The GF thin crust was the best I've had. Great food, great service, great vibe! Don't miss it!
This is one of the Patxi's locations that has gluten-free options (including an awesome GF pizza crust.) GF options are called out on the menu, but you can also make some things safe with minor alterations (no crutons on salads, ask to get the bread on the Burrata appetizer replaced with a GF pizza crust, etc.) Be aware that the sausage contains wheat but the rest of the meats are fine.
I liked it alot. Expensive for delivery. Tasted like real pizza, for a change. I'd order again, when I can spend $30 a pizza, lol, but that's SF. Still not 5 stars though. I'm still dreaming of finding a great gf pizza here in SF.
The gluten-free crust tastes like the standard one you get in many restaurants, but Paxti's cooks it up right - it's just crispy enough. The toppings are tasty and fresh, and the tangy tomato sauce is the best part. I hope someone creates a good gf deep dish crust, because the deep dish here looks amazing.
If I could give a zero star rating, I would. Despite reassurances that they could flag as an "allergy", change gloves, clean surfaces etc, they carried the GF crust in on top of a flour bin, put the pizza directly in the floury oven, used same cutter, etc. when questioned, the manager said "yeah, well it's not a GF environment." Avoid like the plague if you have celiac disease or NCGS.
Eat here twice a month at least and have never been sick. Please tell them it is an allergy so that they will take special care, but they have always been great.
I don't know who ever called it a "$", a pizza here is like $32 for one big enough to share.
