The Mediterranean salad is absolutely delish, they also have a truffle mushroom sauce if you don't want standard pasta sauce with your pizza for pesto and gluten-free medium size. My understanding from the counter waitresses that they prepare the pizza in a separate oven for celiac friendly as well as prepackaged cheese's

They have Pizza! It's pretty good. That is the only thing I have eaten in here. Be sure to ask them for GF dipping bread when they bring the bread and oil out for the table. I think it is just a pizza crust, but it is still good.

My daughter and I are Celiac. Split the Mediterranean GF pizza and chicken GF pasta kale salad. No reactions that either of us notices over 2 days. Staff not real knowledgeable about GF on the phone and has to speak with a manager who seamed somewhat knowledgeable. I would probably have it again but would go at an odd time just to be safe.

Server was nice and knowledgeable. They brought us GF Focaccia bread ($2) for an appetizer- delicious! We got GF Pizzas: grilled chicken & pepperoni. They were both good- not the best we’ve ever had, but great for our hungry tummies. :)

Ordered their pizza to my hotel room after 10 hours of redeye air travel with no food. It was pricey, but man it hit the spot! They told me upfront that delivery would take an hour, it was worth the wait. Non-celiac gluten intolerant.

They have gf crusts, a variety of toppings, and are very accommodating and knowledgeable. The price is somewhat high for the portion size, but otherwise it’s good.

Gluten free options clearly marked on the menu including several kinds of pasta, salad dressings and pizza crust. The server brought our kids GF pasta with regular bread (oops!) so be sure to express your gluten intolerance or Celiac disease very clearly to your server. She said they have dedicated cooking space in the pizza oven. Good vegetarian options as well.

Great GF pizza...it’s a thin crust that has a nice crunch to the crust while it is soft, but not chewy, under the toppings. Team at the Myerland (Houston) location seem knowledgeable enough about GF offerings — both the crust and the toppings.

Has a special place for cooking GF noodles and pizza. Checked items before putting them into the salad or pizza to make sure that they where GF. Also they serve alcohol. The sample of wine is enough to lessen a reaction from cross contamination if their are any accidents.

Yes, they have gluten-free pizza crust and pasta... but the staff doesn't have gluten free knowledge. When I asked for a pasta dish to be made with gf pasta, and tried to confirm that the rest of the dish would be gf, the manager wasn't sure and went back to check with the cooks. When he came back, he said they weren't sure either. He then tried to explain that they don't know anything about gluten free diets or how to be gluten-friendly, and that they need training. He then asked me if I knew how he would go about getting educated in gluten-free menu items. So... I spent a bit of my meal looking online for websites for him to look at. Other than the lack of knowledge (which is most important), the food was delicious...

Had pizza twice at Russo's, once at this location. Overall pizza is very delicious although it gives me heartburn. The GF crust comes in medium size and can build it however you want. Will def come here for my pizza nights.

Unfortunately, our visit was not good. I ordered the GF baked ziti first. Waiter came back and said that they were out of GF pasta due to a power outage. True... that was not their fault, however, I ordered a GF pizza ... crust was chewy. Not good. Also, food was served at three different times. (Kids' pizzas first, mine 5-10 minutes later, and my husband finally got his food when the rest of us were done eating.) Then, the waiter told us he took the ziti off the tab ... so we thought they comp'd a meal. But we were still charged for the four pizzas. ??? I would certainly hope we wouldn't have to pay for the ziti we never got!!

Meh, not the best. If you want good gluten-free pizza in Memphis, try Pyro's instead. I've had better frozen pizza than this. The crust was burnt, and the center was so soft it felt like it was going to fall apart. They also messed up my order with the toppings (not a big deal), but the service was a little slow and it just wasn't worth the price for pizza.

That said, they do offer a huge, and I mean HUGE menu, (read online before going in) so I would go back again, I would maybe just try a pasta dish instead next time though! (Their food did not give me any sort of reaction.)

Tasty pizza and pasta dishes. I have been to the 290 and 6 location several times and have never been glutened. They use separate dishes, utensils, strainers, etc for the gluten free food. The pizza is a good size and the pasta dishes come with a generous portion. No extra charge for gluten free pizza! Each time I have gone the waiters/waitresses have been friendly and knowledgeable.

Great customer service! Knowledge servers. Apparently Mr Russo himself dedicated 6 months to creating the perfect GF crust. Ordered the Greek pizza and it was so delicious. I wanted more. They said Medium pizzas are GF and get whatever toppings you want. Also have spaghetti and penne dishes GF.

GF Pizza is decent. My son seems to really enjoy it, but I usually stick to the GF Caesar salad when I am there now. I react worse than he does and I just don't see how they are keeping things from getting cross contaminated in their kitchen. It's a lil iffy, esp when they are slammed with customers at lunch time. If you are super sensitive to gluten and/or wheat I would say avoid at times when they are really busy.

As a general rule it's much safer to eat out at slightly odd times...esp at places with small kitchens where it's hard (if not impossible) to have an allergen free area. At least they are nice and do seem to be trying here.

Had the gf pizza a year or so ago, and it was wonderful. Today, however, I barely made it home after eating 2 slices of my gf pizza. I'm now sick from cross contamination. I should've not eaten it at all after having to send back the plate that was brought to me for being dirty. I don't know if they have become too relaxed concerning their gf foods or if staff is not trained properly anymore. If I would've been asked if cross contamination was an issue for me, I would've gladly sat and enjoyed a drink. Now, I will have my life, as well as my children's lives, interrupted while being sick/reacting for 3 days to six weeks. Please Russo's either make changes or don't offer gluten free.
