    Really, really good. Upscale without being prissy, staff is fluent in safe food. Entire menu can be made gluten-free, and they have bread even! I had the spinach ravioli and it was amazing. Actually al dente--not undercooked, truly al dente. It was unreal. Desserts are all gluten-free, too. Cheesecake, lava cake, carrot cake, gelatos, key lime pie, apple tart, etc.

    Best GF place hands down. Had the gf tortellini. Had to ask if both bread and tortellini were gf because they tasted so good. In the beginning the 1st thing the waitress asked was if anyone at the table had an allergy. The brought the gf bread out on a different plate other than placing it on the empty plate that was supplied at the table. Hope to come back to NYC just to be able to come back here!!

    My boyfriend and I had dinner here tonight. The food was fantastic. We really couldn't tell it was gluten free. We ordered GF beer from BELGIUM which was better than regular beer. Their gluten free bread was better than regular bread. The GF pasta dishes tasted better than regular pasta or at least you couldn't tell the difference. And I finished the meal off with their GF red velvet cake which was also delicious. Can't wait to go back again and try other dishes! This place is definitely expensive but you get really good quality/tasting food.

    One of my favorite places to go in the city for GF. They can make just about everything on the menu GF just ask. #1 GF Italian fine dining on my list.

    If you want seriously good, safely-prepared GF food, go here!!. I can't give more than 5 stars, but I would if I could.EVERYTHING can be prepared GF. The menu is extensive, the service impeccable and Anthony came out and made sure everything was perfect for us. It was.We had amazing appetizers, pastas (the wild mushroom ravioli was especially awesome) a veal dish that was succulent and the GF bread was good, too (most GF bread leaves much to be desired, IMHO but theirs was really tasty!) Salads were crisp and freshly prepared and the gelato and chocolate cake--well, what can I say? Like heaven in my grateful mouth. We loved it all so much, we went back again the second night. I have celiac and they took very good care of me and as I like to say in all my reviews: I did not get sick, so I highly recommend the place for so many reasons. Go, mangia, enjoy.

    Lets just start with making reservations. His tables were full but said he would reserve us sears at the bar and gave us directions to get there by bus if we wanted. It was such a nice day that we walked from 42nd to 29th. There were people at the bar that were waiting for more people, he politely offered them their table early because we were waiting. My son 10 yr old son has the allergy and was tired of plain chicken. They were surprised he wanted one of their spiciest dishes. He loved it and my husband and I loved the meals. You pick any dish and they will give you GF pasta on request. The entire establishment couldn't have been friendlier! Yes, they are aware that GF needs to be cooked in their own pots. They have been GF for over 10 years.

    On our trip NYC we had a wonderful meal. My daughter is a Celiac. Not only did she get bread (first) but had dessert that wasn't ice cream. Imagine - NY cheese cake. She had gluten free tortellini that was fabulous. My husband and I had the regular bolognese which was also great. The service was amazing. In line with NY pricing. It's a must go!

    Delicious gluten free ravioli, bread, and manicotti! The garlic butternut squash & broccoli side was the perfect complement to the mushroom ricotta ravioli with fra diavlo. My non gf husband said the manicotti tastes just like regular manicotti.

    This is a fabulous restaurant, the gluten free options are vast and all equally fantastic.The hospitality amazing, Anthony the owner will take good care of you. We are severely allergic, celiac all the way, my husband will react to the smallest contamination and he has never gotten sick at Bistango. We bow and are so grateful for this place and their understanding.

    Really delicious food and a very large gluten free menu. The only reason I took off a star is location. Not near any trains. Unless you live right there, you will need to cab it. They should move uptown as well.

    The absolute gold standard of gluten free restaurants in NYC. Delicious food, great gf bread, yummy desserts. And they deliver. One time, I accidentally forgot to tell them that I needed the meal to be gf and they called the delivery guy back to the restaurant and re-cooked the entire meal for me, and I didn't even ASK them to do that. They always go out of their way to accommodate. The best!

    Such an enjoyable meal! It's pleasant NOT to have to worry about food & sharing at a meal with friends, or who stuck their fork in what. Most everything is GF, but not all. The thing is that they will ask if everyone is eating GF, & if they are...they just bring the food for all...not two baskets of bread, just one that all can share...& it's good!
