Great GF food but TERRIBLE service
Had dinner there recently on a Sunday evening. Fortunately we had reservations as there was a waiting line. Great food and good prices for center city but the place is so small that the staff has to squeeze in between chairs, and the noise level was so high we could not carry on a conversation. If that doesn't bother you then go. I wish I had known this before going as I would have chosen somewhere else. I could not enjoy my food - they seem to be knowledgeable and offered gf bread when I asked. I did not have pasta since it was so busy I was afraid of some mistake in the preparation. I just ordered what would be normally gluten free. Make reservations and try to go at an off time if there is such a thing.
Many gluten free options! Excellent food! Excellent service! It's so difficult to fine gluten free Italian restaurants that serve pasta but this one does! And it's really good! It has gluten free pizza too!
Cross contamination issues everywhere! The main restaurant was full so they seated us at their more casual location on the corner which cannot accommodate gf pizzas. They use the same wooden board to slide pizzas in and out of the same oven surface in BOTH restaurants! I had to cancel my pizza
This place was adorable and had amazing food. Not to mention they had gluten free bread for before the meal. The staff was very aware of gluten free and vegan options on their menu and the kitchen makes each meal in a separate pan so there is no cross contamination. Almost everything on the menus can be made gluten free which was a nice change.
great place for gf pasta ! and gf bread !
Everything is delicious and perfect for celiacs!!!! Highly recommended!!!!
Delicious dinner. Pleasantly surprised to see that most of the menu is GF. They get their bread daily from a GF bakery in the city. Multiple pieces were brought to the table along with an individual container of oil and there was no up charge for it! Eating out is always a little scary. The waitress absolutely got the GF issue. Made us feel so much better about it. The owner stopped by a couple of times to see how we were. We will definitely be back.
AUTHENTIC ITALIAN FOOD & Unbelievable list of GF options. What can be better. The service was great and all appetizers and main entree's were fantastic. Giorgio knows ITALIAN and fully understands GF. I'll be back soon.
Exceptional! We went twice during our visit to philly. I can't say enough about the food. Great service as well , almost everything can be made gluten free. Prices are reasonable portions are large quality is fantastic everything is fresh and cooked to order.
I Got pizza and it was soggy. This is actually The first time I've ever experienced this and it was the first pizza I've ever not ate.
Outstanding! Everything we ordered was delicious and completely GF safe/friendly.
Get the pasta!!! So good. Great service and the owner checks in on you periodically. The GF bread was awesome. Bread at an Italian place that I can eat? Yay! Be prepared to leave FULL only downside it gets loud. It's very busy. Make a reservation but u still might wait a few mins. Next time I'll go on a week night early. 8:30 on a Saturday night is bustling!!!!
An extensive gluten free menu and knowledgeable and helpful staff. Brought out gluten free bread, careful to avoid cross contamination.
OMG! This place is fantastico!! Giorgio was adorable and a wonderful host to us. The menu was almost entirely gluten free. Everything we tried was delicious, right down to the dessert he insisted we have. I can't wait to come back!
LOVED Giorgio on Pine! Small space and a little loud but not too bad. Nearly the entire menu is gluten free, which is such a welcome change from most restaurants. They also offer gluten free bread (not the best I've had but good for sopping up sauce) and gluten free dessert options. I asked for the gorgonzola cream sauce that was on special to be added to gluten free penne and to add shrimp and some broccoli/spinach. They created my special request dish with no questions asked and it was wonderful! (It was so good that when I was full after eating only half, my non-GF husband finished it!) A friend had the parmesan crusted pork chop that was on special and it was amazing as well. For dessert I chose the lemoncello sorbet - gluten free and amazing! The service was very good as well. Our waiter had a thick accent so we had to listen very carefully but he was happy to repeat and explain things and not only did he remember that I'm gluten free, he remembered that my friend said she had a peanut allergy (only an issue on the desserts that contain nuts). I will definitely go back to Giorgio on Pine!
Small, loud, fun, buzzing Italian... With an entire menu to pick from! I had Parmesian Crusted Chicken, friends had salmon. delicious sides of kale and krispy potatoes. There was also a broad menu of Schar pastas prepared in their house made sauces. Schar bread delivered to the table with my own olive oil for dipping. BYOB
This place is fantastic!!! My non-GF friends I had with me very much enjoyed their non-GF dishes and I LOVED my GF dish. Our waiter actually combined two dishes just for me because I couldn't decide between two. This place is worth every penny and the walk (however far it may be) I only wish I could bring it home with me! :-)
As a NYC native I am picky about my Italian food, Giorgio's did not disappoint! My in-laws loved their non-gf dishes and were actually jealous of all the GF options we had to choose from. The owner seated us and explained that all the items on the back of their menu were GF, our waiters were also very knowledgeable and helpful. Once we informed them that my wife and I were GF they brought out special gluten free bread for the table (at no additional charge!). The GF shellfish and Brown Rice Ziti entrées were both Delicious! Each dish was large enough to share, although my Father did finish his. After stuffing our faces I insisted on ordering desert, their GF option was flourless chocolate cake, which actually tasted more like a decadent fudge, yum! Everything was fantastic and if you are in Philly you need to eat here. FYI: BYOB
Loved this restaurant! We went out for a nice dinner on our visit to Philly and I'm so glad we picked Giorgio on Pine. My son was very happy with his GF bread and pizza. The rest of us absolutely loved our dinners-ravioli, Parmesan crusted pork chops-it was all so good.
Fantastic! I even got to enjoy some bread with my dinner.... That never happens! So delicious!
Pizza was ok, not that tasteful and I did not feel welcome in the environment, very 'regulars' only feel!
For a kid-friendly meal, head to Giorgio on Pine. With gluten-free pasta, pizza, and homemade gluten-free desserts, their menu is sure to please the kids and kids at heart.
Fantastic restaurant and very attentive to your allergy! Amazing food!
This place is truly amazing. The food was amazing. I sat down and the first thing the waitress asked me (after she said hello) was if I was gluten free. I told her yes and she explained the menu to me, even though it is all clearly marked (which I appreciated). she let me look it over then came back and I swear I almost cried when they brought out the bread to start. I thought it was a mistake and almost reminded her I can't eat bread, but as she set it down she told me it was gluten free and it was so good!! I had the muscles and clams in garlic cream sauce to start and it was delicious. I then had the fussili and oh my Lord it was so delicious, it even had the texture of wheat flour pasta!! The staff was VERY friendly and once I was done i asked for a box. what made the meal even more special was that I went to the bathroom and when I came back they had given me a free piece of chocolate cake. I really had to try not to cry in the restaurant. I never thought I'd be able to go out and eat bread before my meal, go out snd eat delicious pasta and Italian food. other restaurants I feel like such a bother asking for a gf menu or discussing my allergy. I even had a potluck in my class later that night and had been dreading being surrounded by food I couldn't it, but it didn't matter because I had such a wonderful experience. it was raining all afternoon but I was beaming walking back to the train station.
My favorite GF restaurant in Philly. They give you gluten free bread and oil to start. Good pasta the pizza is just okay, and my boyfriend loves their nonGF food too. The owner and staff are very nice as well!
My boyfriend had a job interview in Philadelphia. After a long day of traveling and very little food, we wanted to grab a meal before getting on our flight home. The atmosphere won us over the minute we walked in the door. The food and the service solidified our love for this establishment. Before the word Celiac left my lips our amazing waitress brought GF bread and Olive Oil. Our appetizer of sautéed calamari, was the best either of us had ever had. Finished our meal with Margarita Pizza for me and a gluten filled ziti dish for him. As an Italian food lover, he said it was the best pasta he's ever had. We left with full stomachs and happy souls and swore to return next time we are in the city.
Food was amazing and the service was very friendly I believe servers name was Anna . Worth the walk . I recommend this to anyone with wheat issues . I will be back next time I'm in Philly for sure .
I had the best gluten free meal in a long time at this place! Gluten free bread arrived at the table, complete with my own olive oil for dipping. I had gluten free pasta with seafood, a blackened Caesar salad, and crème brulee for dessert! They had a separate menu, an entire page, and it listed the brand of gluten free pasta, and brand of gluten free pizza dough. This made it easy for looking up ingredients! They really seemed to take pride in providing an awesome dining experience - and going out of their way to cater to my dietary issues! And they were also quite nice with my son's vegetarian diet! Did I mention that they had 4 different desserts that were gluten free???
Gluten free menu full of pizza and pasta options. Waiter asked if anyone had food allergies right away. They even bring out gluten free bread and olive oil. I ordered the pizza and my gluten free friend ordered pasta both of us enjoyed our meals and did not have a reaction. Will defiantly be going back :)
GO HERE!!!! I am an extremely sensitive celiac and I full out gorged and did not get the least bit sick. I never would have tried this place without the glowing reviews here and I'm so glad I did. They assured me things are prepared separately and most are GF anyway. The chef is celiac if I heard my waiter correctly. Italian restaurants always scare me and this is the first time I have had pizza at a "regular" restaurant in over 4 years. LOVED it. Also the roasted Cesar salad and the flourless chocolate cake. Will be back when I am in Philly again!!!!
Dined here for lunch, and it was absolutely fantastic. Since I frequent Avenue for the Arts, I just found my new go to spot before performances!!
This amazing gem of an Italian bistro was not easily found on GF websites and it should be..it is a celiac's paradise! Much of the menu is gluten free (and marked as such) and they have a separate GF menu as well. Most of their pasta dishes can be made with GF pasta. They serve GF bread and also have GF dessert. My 15 yr old son was in heaven. It is a bustling, very busy place with a friendly, accommodating staff. Be prepared to wait a bit for a table or make a reservation.
Absolutely excellent food. The sauce is amazing and has a quality of homecooked deliciousness reminiscent of my grandmother's. The sweet sausage appetizer was incredible. We will absolutely come back and bring friends. Most of their dishes are naturally gluten-free, but if you weren't gf, you'd still absolutely love the food and never miss gluten (since its not supposed to be there in the first place).
Without a doubt, the best GF restaurant in Philly, perhaps my fave of any GF place I've ever eaten. 99% of the menu can be prepared GF, the staff is very knowledgeable, extremely friendly. Will be back for sure. Make reservations -- place is a gem and can be difficult to get a table without one.
Hands down the best gluten free restaurant I've ever been to! Basically everything on the menu is gluten free and the service is phenomenal! It is BYOB, has the best chocolate flour less cake I've ever had, and serves delicious gluten free bread with olive oil when you're seated! So good we went two nights in a row!
The best gluten free restaurant we have been to, yet. The service was wonderful and so warm. The food, both gluten free and regular, was fantastic. Extensive gluten free menu.
we were excited to eat here because of the reviews so I called to see if there was a long wait and the owner said to come he could get us in. when we got there after a twenty minute walk he sat us down. after giving us menus another group came in and he came and told us that his reservation came in late and we had to give up our table. I feel it was rude and humiliating to us and he handled his customers wrong. We're from out of state so needless to say we won't be coming back.
Amazing. Brought the kids and had an incredible experience. Ate GF pizza, pasta primavera & non GF ravioli. It's all delicious. They had GF bread from Taffets. Also worth a stop. Oh. And also wonderful and kind people. Love. We will be back.
I give 5 star for the selection. We had the ribeye which was very tastee and flavorful. They had gluten free French bread for me at the beginning of the meal which was a nice treat..if they toasted the bread would have been better, but I was thankful for it anyway. The pizza was just alright. Maybe we should have chosen a different pizza....we had the "white pizza" and it was ok. Not the best pizza crust (off the grain is to me) but not the worst for sure. PEOPLE ARE WONDERFUL. Almost the whole menu was GF and they had a couple deserts.
My favorite place for Authentic Italian food!
Food and service are fabulous! Staff is very attentive to special diets, particularly gluten free. Dine early and in the main dining room. A gem !
Absolutely fantastic place with great food, ambiance, and of course a very extensive gluten free menu. Pizza dough was thick but very buttery and good. They brought us out a complimentary creme brulee at the end of the meal and it was simply amazing.
After using a google search for gluten free places to eat in Philadelphia, we came across Giorgio's that just happened to be near where we were walking. It's on Pine street near the theater district, a little bit off the beaten path it seemed. We got there about 7pm on a Tuesday night. We didn't have to wait at all and they weren't busy until later around 8pm. The hostess promptly seated us and brought over the menu. Pretty much anything on the menu could be made gluten free. They use Schar's pasta but also have a brown rice pasta and gluten free pizzas. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable about gluten free. It seemed as though they were known in that area for gluten free foods. I didn't know we had to bring our own beer/wine or else I would have grabbed some on our way in. Lesson learned. They brought out regular bread and garlic/oil for my husband and a separate gluten free bread tray for mine with my own oil to prevent cross contamination. I started with the soup, a potato soup with mozzarella and bacon. It was really good but lacking the potato pieces in the soup I hoped for. I chose the brown rice pasta with the beef goulash. It was very good. The pasta was cooked perfectly, just enough sauce and the beef was tender and juicy. Extra parmesan cheese on top and I was a happy camper. I only could finish about half of it so we boxed it up and took it back to the hotel. My husband had the special with spicy sausage pasta with a light white wine sauce. He said it was amazing. Dinner for less than $50 was a pleasant surprise! I often struggle with finding places that have not only a gluten free menu but an understanding of cross contamination and safety concerns. Even if the food was horrible, they would get a great review for having such a wonderful experience for me. I highly recommend this place for those of us looking for gluten free options!!
Great gluten free options with a separate menu and everything tagged. They are very knowledgeable and aware of cross contamination issues. The gluten free pizza is great!
expensive, but adorable atmosphere with knowledgeable staff.
Simply the best!! Excellent gluten free menu, very knowledgable about cross contamination. I have eaten here many times and it never disappoints! The addition of gluten free bread at beginning of the meal is also a nice touch. Also one of the friendliest wait staffs you will find.
Excellent! I had no worries about contamination. I had the fusilli dish with the tomato cream sauce soooo good! They even have gluten free bread to bring to the table. I was very impressed with the service and knowledge about gf. I will definitely be returning here!
Pizza and pasta for me? Yes please! I've had both from here and they are delicious.
Amazing food and the personalized customer service was unbeatable!
excellent pizza! and the wait staff was all super nice. next time i want to try the pasta.
