    Phenomenal. Great prices for NYC. Gluten free baguette was complimentary, had gluten free ravioli, and gluten free tiramisu.

    First question was "any food allergies". The rest of the meal was magical. Fresh bread made in Brooklyn (oh how I want this for a sub sandwich) and ravioli that made my heart smile. Will definitely be back!

    This place is amazing! The first question the waitress asked was whether I had any allergies and she said everything on the menu could be prepared gluten free! They even have dairy free options which is so hard to find! You can even have dessert!

    We were able to call for a reservation the same day which was nice. We were seated without menus which wasn't that big a deal, but the ONE waitress for the entire restaurant was slammed with large parties and took a LONG time to get to us. We were asked about allergies as the first thing so they are very allergy/gluten aware. We finally ordered drinks, appetizers and our dinner at the same time. They brought out our drinks and fresh bread. They gave my celiac daughter gluten free bread with olive oil and garlic which she enjoyed very much and I thought it was very good too. They never brought out our appetizers, but we waited so long that we didn't care - until the appetizers showed up on our bill. I got the Pollo meal, my older daughter got the GF spinach ravioli, my celiac daughter got Caesar salad with grilled chicken and my husband got a regular rigatoni meal. The food was delicious and ALL the desserts, but the Tiramisu were gluten free - we got the cheesecake, the Apple brûlée and the Trisome. The service was horrid and slow, but the food and gluten free options made up for it. We were here between Christmas and New Years so it's possible the wait staff was just off. We would definitely try this restaurant again when in town.

    Delicious gluten free food including the best tasting gluten free bread and pasta I've ever had. I had the rigatoni bolognese which was excellent. The lentil soup was also very yummy. Friendly good service and really nice vibe overall.

    A great find in NYC. Very accommodating to eating GF (they ask at the beginning "does anyone have any food allergies?") and can make anything on the menu GF. Very wide selection of items, including pasta, flatbread and appetizers. We had GF: flatbreads, the chicken, the bread+hummus appetizer, the pasta, and cheesecake. All Delicious! Came back two more times on a short trip because they were so accommodating and we had no I food issues after each visit.

    Picked this place after I read reviews regarding GF choices. Almost the whole menu can be made GF. Had the homemade GF mushroom & ricotta ravioli with pink sauce with GF bread that is brought in from a bakery in Brooklyn. Dee-lush! Owner was very customer oriented and checked on us throughout our dining experience. What was really impressive was the dessert menu...they had 8 GF options and only 2 that were not! Had GF tiramisu which was outstanding! I highly recommend this place!!!!

    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.

    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!!

    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!

    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

    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.

    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
