since my diagnosis of celiac 4 months ago, this was hands down the most relaxed and tasty meal I've had. The other 6 people in my party ordered all gluten free appetizers and still raved about them. The bread, appetizers, meals, and even several desserts weren't just "good for being gf"; they were amazing Italian dishes prepared with care. Thank you Anthony and staff for this experience. It doesn't come often.
Wow. We visited New York for the week and had many options and tried a different as many as we could for GF lunches and dinners. Bistango by far was our best eating experience. The food was fantastic. The food was so good and wish we had visited at least twice. The staff was very knowledgeable and since I was diagnosed as a celiac 5 years ago, this was the best food I've eaten and may go so far as to say ever. If we make our way back to the city this place will be at the top of our list.
I think the other reviews say it all. A true gem. I love this place so so much. Plus one time, I was working late under a deadline and desperate for a late night gluten free dinner. The owner understood my celiac struggle and was kind enough to have the kitchen prepare something as they were closing and even threw in a free dessert!
This place is absolutely phenomenal. The entire menu can be made GF and they even have separate GF bread that can be brought to the table. Pasta was delicious and the flatbread appetizers were amazing. The staff was attentive and knowledgable, and eased any concerns that I had with ease and humor. It was a wonderful dining experience.
Great food! Awesome staff and very accommodating.
I LOVE this place! in fact, I love it so much my husband and I constantly talk about it and since we live in Virginia, we have made a special trip to NY just so we can eat here. It is that good! Being a celiac, I have never felt so accommodated in any other restaurant. They have the best gf bread hands down which they serve before your meal. Each time I've gone I've gotten the ravioli and it is so delicious! I've also had the apple crumble, carrot cake, creme Brule and vanilla gelato. All were so yummy but I dream about the apple crumble! If you are in NY you must come here!!
I had the ravioli and it was amazing!
Amazing food! Great service! Lovely restaurant! We shared a GF pizza to start which was so delicious - really good crust. I then had a GF butternut squash ravioli with the most delicious sauce! My hubby had the steak which was cooked perfectly med-rare. They also had an extensive dessert menu but we were so full! Definitely returning!
Fabulous food and very friendly staff!
Second time here, food is incredible and so many gluten free options. Bread is amazing and the ravioli and pasta are fantastic along with the key lime pie. Many drink options as well.
Amazing food & service. I would highly recommend this place. Make sure you have reservations for dinner!
Outstanding GF meal in midtown. Excellent flatbread and pasta.
Fabulous gluten free food!! Had mushroom flatbread, muscles with Gf bread for dipping and almond cake for dessert. Everything was so delicious.
I did not know gluten free food could be as delicious as the food at Bistango!
Amazing GF spinach and ravioli with ricotta and the GF bread was great as well. They were very careful and knowledgeable about their GF food on their regular and dessert menus.
Absolutely amazing for gluten sensitive. They even brought me GF bread at the same time that they brought reg bread to my friends and they even brought separate olive oil plates to avoid cross contamination. My non gluten sensitivity friend love the food and the place. The service was awesome. Will definitely come here more often
Warm, delicious GF bread for dipping. What a treat! Awesome key lime pie with an almond crust to follow the GF spinach & ricotta ravioli. A great meal with great service. You will not be disappointed.
Lovely menu, amazing GF bread. DF marked. Super careful.
An amazing meal. Staff very attentive. GF bread brought out that was warm and a light texture. Dinner was wonderful and GF carrot cake topped it off. Highly recommend.
Great service! Gluten free entrees and desserts are phenomenal!! Knowledgeable, friendly, HONEST staff!!! My daughter forgot her purse at the table. We went back 30 minutes later to find all contents and money still inside. We go here every time we're in town & will continue. Thank you Bistango!!!
Love this delicious and wonderful restaurant!
Excellent service. Very knowledgable! Behind the bar Gracie was awesome!
Probably the best gluten free dining experience I've ever had! The food was so great that we asked several times to ensure it was gluten free. Service is exceptional! Flatbread is exceptional! Bread is exceptional! Pasta! Even the Olive Oil Gelato! You MUST TRY THIS PLACE!
I keep seeing new Bistangos open, and while it fills me with glee that these guys are running a successful business, if something goes wrong and they all close, my heart will break. As far as I am concerned, this could basically be the only GF restaurant in NYC and it would be kind of okay. The filled pastas will make you feel like a member of society again.
I just ate at Bistango. They are very conscientious about their gluten free offerings. I had the mixed green salad and the butternut squash ravioli. Both were delicious. They even included gluten free French bread that was delicious. I will definitely go back.
The best GF food I have eaten! I had a ravioli dish which was impeccable!! From the apps and bread to the variety of desserts this is the BEST place in NYC for a great gluten free meal leaving you happily satisfied!
Amazing gluten free dinner. They had the best bread, flatbreads, pasta and salads. Service was very friendly and knowledgable.
We were on a weekend trip to NYC and I am gluten intolerant and it was hard finding a restaurant with a variety of options until we found Bistango on a Google search. I was nervous about trying a new place but really really glad I did. Restaurant staff is very friendly and one of the first things they ask is " does anybody have food allergies?" The food was AWESOME and there are multiple choices for meals and desert!!! Definitely worth the adventure and will be going back are next time in NYC
The best GF restaurant in NYC! The staff is very attentive and concerned about food intolerances, and the owner, Anthony, takes a lot of pride in his work. He happily greets you at the door and chats with the regulars. Most of the menu is naturally GF or can be made so. When my boyfriend and I visit, he tells our friends to try the GF options to see just how great GF food can be. And safe room for dessert because they are the best desserts in the city.
A great evening with excellent food and very friendly service. First time ever that all at the menu card could be prepared glutenfree...and actually where the glutenfree course even better than the "normal" once... if possible this restaurant should have 6 (Michelin) stars ..you must try this one out if you go to NY
Best Gluten Free restaurant I have ever gone too. Usually hard at Italian restaurants but not here. We try to go every time we travel to NYC. Reservations a must.
Everything was amazing and the service was excellent. If I could eat everything on the menu I would. My fiancé and I both got appetizers entrees and desserts, all very very good. Will go back soon!!!
AMAZING. Fabulous food, service, the works. Good gluten free Italian fare is hard to come by, and my husband and I were thoroughly impressed with both the foods and the top shelf service at Bistango. May cine back to New York just to dine here again.
Awesome food, beer selection and understanding of their menu! Order the orzo!
good place for gluten-free pizza and pasta
Really wonderful options for those of us who can't often enjoy Italian food! Not just gluten free pasta, but ravioli, lasagna, and more! Really very cool spot!
Best gluten free bread!!!! Friendly staff and fabulous food! They can make anything on the menu gluten free. I had the French toast(amazing) and the spinach ravioli(amazing). Must try!!!
Everything can be made gluten free, and it's delicious. Excellent service and killer cheesecake! Reasonably priced with comfortable atmosphere.
Delicious meal!! Also the gf bread they provide you is great. The portions are pretty small though.
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.
hands down one of the best. an absolute must try.
Celiac friendly and AWESOME! Bread, pasta dishes, salads, appetizers like calamari, all GF! And the waitstaff completely knowledgable, 2 thumbs up and divine!
Simply amazing! Best tortellini ever!! GF bread, desserts. They have it all.
Amazing food. Superb service.
Does it all correctly, staff is clearly trained and takes gluten issues seriously. And the food is yummy.
totally incredible. .95percent menu gluten free. bread available... warmed and toasted. superb.
WOW !!! First question when you sit down....does anyone have any food allergiies? GF is prime time here. Some pasta dishes only come GF. If you are in NYC you must come here but make a reservation first.
fantastic service, wonderful food! You won't be sorry for choosing this restaurant!
Most amazing Italian in nyc ~love your favorite Gluten Free tour guide!
This place is amazing ! Stuffed ravioli was to die for and the gf bread was great ! It's so refreshing to order from a restaurant and not have to worry! Love this place and will be back again !
I have owned resturaunts and coined my whole life. I've been gluten free for almost 3 years now and this is by far the best gluten free food that I have ever had. My deep Thanks to Anthony the owner!
Anthony has made being GF a non issue with his awesome restaurant. It's nice having stuffed ravioli once again! He really cares for the well being of his guests and is super friendly. We eat here whenever we are in town.
This is the best Restaurant for anyone avoiding gluten. Anthony, the owner, is so nice and a true host. We love going here and never having to worry about anything except having a great meal!
Very gluten free friendly! So nice to go out and have bread and a pasta dinner!
Great food and great staff! I don't eat out frequently because most places make me sick but when I do, I almost always go here. Bistango is amazing!
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!!
Best gluten free bread I've ever tasted! Knowledgable staff and friendly chef! Will definitely be back. Try the calamari!
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.
Food was excellent. First question was "any food allergies?"
Pretty good, but not great. Definitely accommodating to gluten free customers, but not outstanding Italian food. GF Red velvet cake was delicious.
A little Pricey but so good. Loved the bread. Just got to make sure to make reservations next time. Otherwise you sit at the bar, which actually isn't bad
Gluten free pasta was tasty, but wasn't quite as good as fresh made GF pasta
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!
From the bread to the dessert it is exceptional!! The red velvet cake is the best cake I've ever eaten.
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.
Staff takes pride in its offerings, manager is uber inviting. Visit is a must, reservations highly recommended.
Poetry in motion, the mushroom ravioli with cream sauce is unprecedented. I remember what real food tastes like - served daily at this diamond in the rough.
Fantastic to eat gluten free. Ravs were great! My wife loved the whole gluten free meal and the bread.
I am a loyal customer and the food is amazing
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!
It was an amazing experience! Had the lasagna and red velvet cake both to die for. The GF bread was great and the GF beer, "Green's", also very good. The service is extremely awsome. Thanks and kudos for Bistango!
Gluten free stuffed pasta and bread!! They can make anything on the menu gluten free
I ate ravioli! And it was a delicious butternut squash ravioli in a brown butter sage sauce. Also, they actually provide g-free bread. I don't know the last time I had bread before dinner at a restsurant. Very delicious and the owner is so kind
Bellisimo!!! First GF Restaurant I ever ate at...over 7 years ago. The food is awesome and the staff and atmosphere are wonderful!!!
Best GF place in NYC
I love Bistango more than any other Gfree place in the city. Excellent fresh bread, extremely tasty meals, great service, and after we met the owner once, he remembered us every time. A true gem.
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!
fantastic food, great selections, awesome service.
