Description: A local pizzeria with a focus on organic, fresh, healthy and delicious meals. Renee's is not a gluten free restaurant. Please feel free to contact them with any questions or concerns you may have. The kitchen provides a gluten free station. This station is staffed by a team educated on meeting the needs of gluten free diners. While this is not a gluten free kitchen items are sourced from gluten free facilities and all that can be done is done to keep it that way. The top right side of our oven has dedicated gluten free cooking stones and is used only for GF pizza, sandwiches, and tostadas. All salads, dressings, tostadas and sandwiches are gluten free. Gluten free desserts are sourced from a gluten-free bakery in town.
Comments: Feb 13, 2012: I've had Renee's a number of times, mostly within the past year, and I've never had an issue. The pizzas are more expensive than I'd like to pay, but the ingredients are organic and high quality, and incredibly tasty, and the chicken sandwich is fantastic. If I made more money I'd be here 3x/week.
There are a handful of people who had bad experiences- I notice they are mostly from a while back. Maybe there\'s been a change in staff or a re-education? The staff has always seemed informed and caring when I was there. It's one of my favorite places in town (if on the pricey side.)

Jul 10, 2011: I've had Renee's pizza many times and never had any problems, so I thought it was about time to tell everyone how great I think they really are. Tonight I have the gluten free BBQ chicken pizza. It was the best so far. I love the combination of the red peppers, cilantro and onions with their BBQ sauce and chicken. It was cheesy and delicious. The crust was perfect, soft and a little chewy in the middle and crispy around the edges. I really like eating GF and organic even though it's a little more expensive. I always feel a little better after eating organic, it seems to agree more with my digestive system.
I frequently take advantage of their gf special, half a gf cheese pizza and a salad for only $10 is a great deal. Commentor's sensitivity: Digestive Symptoms (gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, etc) and can usually (but not always) be certain if they've eaten gluten
Jun 29, 2011: I have had pizza at the former Eclectic Pizza twice. The first time, I was in heaven and had no problems. Could not believe my good fortune to find such a place. The 2nd time, in late 2010, the pizza was OK and I took the rest home. I did develop symptoms that night and for the next several days. Tossed the remaining pizza out and have not returned.

Jun 23, 2011: This is a wonderful place to eat GF! The staff is well versed in avoiding cross contamination. The food is fresh and delicious. Price is driven by the direct cost to the establishment for these wholesome ingredients. As anyone who eats GF and organic knows, GF food is not inexpensive and neither is organic produce. I have personally met with the owners and they take great pride and care in what they do. I would definitely eat there again and suggest this place to those missing yummy GF pizza!

Apr 25, 2011: I ordered this for my birthday last year and had no problem digesting the Pizza, but the playdough texture of the crust was very disappointing as was the $23 we paid for an 8" pizza. I would not recommend it again. I now make my own pizza with Bob's Red Mill pizza mix which I think is much better.

Apr 22, 2010: I've eaten here many times and the pizza is always good and never affects me. The owner even told me where they get their crusts--Dad's. The $16 for the pizza sounds expensive, but if you order the crusts online from Dad's they are $8 and you still need to put all the ingredients on them and bake them, so I guess the $16 isn't so bad.
