    Pala has a separate gluten free pizza menu that features crust which doesn't taste like cardboard. A vegan menu offers toppings that could easily go head to head with any well-respected dairy pie. Read more

    Vastly overrated. Don't order the Inferno -- they cook everything BUT the meat (which tastes like room temp lunch meat). Flabbergasted as to why this is so highly rated... ?

    Go here if you absolutely need gluten free pizza in the les. It's really good. The service is shit and the atmosphere will make you feel like you're sitting in a very uncomfortable chair.

    Since Viva Herbal closed, this is the best downtown vegan pizza alternative. More pricey than a by-the-slice pizza joint, but totally worth it.

    Turn the menu over and order from the vegan side. You will not be sorry. (Especially If you get the funghi e salaiccia pie)

    Love the taste of good traditional NYC Pizza like Lombardi or even the relatively new Nicoletta ? Stay away, this place is not for you.
