We dined here last week, right after Christmas. While a gluten free (Celiac) member of our family has dined here several times without incident, I'm not sure it's the best bet for Celiacs. While they do offer gluten free pizza (homemade crust) and pasta, they state right on the menu that it isn't prepared in a gluten free environment. While that is often a statement made by restaurants to cover themselves in case of cross contamination, in this case, the preparation is very questionable. We were seated next to the pizza prep area. When I asked our server if the gluten free pizza was prepared in a separate area, he said no. I asked if they could please prepare it in an area that has been wiped off so that there was no regular flour around. I went through all the special instructions about prep and using a separate pizza cutter, etc., but to be honest, I was nervous since they don't typically take these precautions. Our son didn't get sick from it, thank God, but I think there are safer places to eat, especially if you are Celiac. If you're gluten free by choice and aren't affected by cross contamination (not Celiac), it's a great place, because the pizza is good and cooked in an 800 degree brick oven. The restaurant is in an old church, so the ambiance is really cool -- soaring ceiling, two levels. They also have gluten free pasta, but I'd make sure to request that they cook it in a separate fresh pot of water and that they use a separate colander and serving spoon. There should be plenty of salads on the menu that are safe, too. There are two other locations: Jersey City and the Bronx. See their website for details.
