If I could give this place 10 stars I would! Understanding to the GF needy, amazing food- stocca and gnocchi and more, would highly recommend.
you shall not be disappointed. went there because of the reviews. went back because they were right!! the eggplant appetizer was the bomb and the gnocchis were the best I've had. just like my italian falcone and bodio relatives used to make me from scratch when I was a non-celiac kiddo. the complimentary starter of gf herbed bread with olive oil was a fantastic, unexpected treat. loved every single bite.
Went there tonight not actually knowing they were so gf friendly. Hostess proactively asked if anyone was gf. Served gf bread. And had a full menu of Italian items including chickpea crust pizza, pastas, salads and entrees. Excellent pasta (corn) and pesto sauce. Will be back for sure.
Awesome food and great ambience.
Awesome GF food & ambiance! The gf pasta was amazing (pesto, clam sauce). GF focaccia was delicious!
Wide variety of options, and the bread is superb. Loved every part of my meal, including the cute environment of the restaurant.
One of my favorites - they even bring out gluten free bread! Try the gnocchi! Read more: http://glutenfreecarolinagirl.com/2014/10/27/gluten-free-at-nizza/
SO GOOD!! They have awesome bread, and appitizers! If I ever come back to the city, I'm eating here.
Great GF bread! Food was delicious. Maybe a little small on portion size. Great corn pasta.
The food was great! The service was great! I ordered a caprese salad and the prosciutto and mozzarella socca, gf of course, my boyfriend ordered the focaccette and the duck lasagna, not gf. The waiter noticed that I was holding the gf menu and immediately informed that the special was as well. Then the bus boy brought us both gf bread and non-gf bread for the table. I didn't even have to ask. We didn't ask about dessert though. Side note: the restaurant is tiny and when busy gets loud and hot. Sit outside, it might be cooler there.
Hot Coppa was super yummy.
Love this place! So many delicious options and very helpful staff.
I absolutely love this place. The atmosphere is fun, the wait staff is incredible. Thanks so much. Warren. The GF bread is light, fluffy and delicious. We split the steak and the pesto pasta. The steak was cooked perfectly, but my hands down favorite is the pesto pasta. You will never know its GF
Amazing GF menu for my 7 year old with celiac. We were going to the Intrepid Museum and it was very convenient. The food was awesome for our entire party of 8!!
The restaurant is allergen friendly (corn, dairy, and gluten) and the staff made sure our food was safe for us. The garbanzo based pizza crust takes a bit to get used to, but the toppings were fresh and flavorful.
so delicious and very knowledgeable. great selection, too. the gnocchi was so, so good, and I definitely don't get bread sticks often.
The first thing the waitress asked us was if anyone needed a GF menu. Great start! The staff were knowledgeable and were able to tell me their process on making sure there's no cross contamination. Dinner was delicious and I was completely fine after we ate.
Wonderful menu, with lots of choices for me! The gnocchi was great! So many options. Next time I'm in Manhattan, I'll be coming back! Tasty, tasty, tasty...
Celiac friendly! The gluten free menu almost brought me to tears because it was so diverse! The staff blew me away and so did the food! GO!
Great dedicated menu for those who are gluten free! Delicious.
very good pizza. just wish I could have been able to have more meals there because they had so many choices that looked so good.
The pesto fettuccine was phenomenal! We weren't huge fans of the socca (pizza), but that fettuccine was worth 10 stars!
The food was excellent, but there must have been some cross contamination because I became very ill after eating there with a full blown celiac reaction.
Great variety to choose from and server had celiac herself so she was attentive and knowledgable to assist. Their homemade gf bread was delicious and I had seconds. Their gf pizza was ok...the crust was kind of soggy and fell apart so we are it with a fork. The sauce was ok too. However the best part was the hazelnut gelato with espresso and a homemade gf biscotti! That was amazing and well worth the extra bite.
Amazing! The GF bread when we sat down was so good I ate the entire thing and asked for a second plate! I will certainly eat here whenever I am in the area...or go out of my way to eat here :) My husband & brother said their non GF meals were delicious, too
I had the pesto pasta, and my husband had a pizza, both were amazing! I really liked the pizza crust.. Staff were very friendly and gluten aware!
Very good authentic Italian. Loved the house made gf bread and eggplant and cheese casserole.
Separate gluten free menu, servers are knowledgeable.
Great gluten free food! They even brought out gluten free bread for me. Great service and friendly waitresses.
Nizza has done an excellent job with the gluten free menu. As someone with celiacs disease I have not had a reaction yet during my visits. It appears they take the time to not cross contaminate the meals.
Always great food and service. Has always been safe to eat with a very knowledgable staff. Extra perk is gluten free bread just like a non gf restaurant
Great service and food. Was asked if any of us required gluten free menu as we arrived. Son enjoyed the food and the bread was a bonus
I am so sorry to say this but out of four meals only one was edible. My gluten-free pizza was soggy and clearly microwaved; my dining companion's spaghetti and meatballs was blah - over cooked spaghetti - and my other dining companion's marinara was meh too. So disappointing. The waitress was lovely though.
Amazing service and food! I have celiac disease and an allergy to garlic n onion and my waitress michelle consistently asked the chef about my food order till we both were certain it was safe! I got the octopus appetizer (amazing) , margherita pizza, and my friend got pork chops w/ creamy polenta. Honestly I never go out and eat because I'm too scared but I will definitely be returning here!
I had the best Italian meal here since I was diagnosed celiac five years ago. The pizza and the pasta dishes were really great, and we tried three or four different items. Gluten free bread on the table if you ask. The pizza crust is a chickpea based bread that was really good, and much better than I expected. Great service too.
Food was delicious. First thing they ask is if you need a gluten free menu, and you even get your own bread with dipping oil!! Definitely my go-to place to eat in NYC.
our waitress was so helpful and kind, suggested a perfect meal and kept our beverages refreshed. whole menu for gfree, and had a great beer too. I would go back in a heartbeat
Best gluten free restaurant in years. Gluten free bread wonderful with cheese to start. Then shared Gnocchi Al Forno and Roast chicken breast with vegetables and devine sauce.
All around AMAZING! Was brought GF focaccia bread to start. I ordered the gnocchi as my main, which was honestly one of the best dishes I've ever had. The service was also impeccable. 5+ stars
Amazing gluten free menu. And they even bring you a basket if your own gluten free focaccia bread! The best meal I had in New York!
Vast gluten free menu with many different options for appetizers, salads, pastas, and entrees. The waitress made sure I got GF focaccia bread after I asked for the GF menu. Will definitely go back!
Incredible! Very friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. The GF pesto pasta was delicious and for the first time ever at any restaurant they brought a basket of GF focaccia bread along with the regular kind for the rest of my family.
Came across this place thanks to my FIND ME GLUTEN FREE ap. wow it did not disappoint. GF menu which had so much on it! I got fresh focaccia bread without asking!! And ate Socca for the first time . Wonderful ... And, while there, treat yourself to their signature sangria. Yum!
Excellent food and quality. Walking distance from Javitz.
Great GF biscotti!
Fantastic pizza and a few more options than most places for toppings. Staff friendly and gluten as well as food allergy conscious. Nice atmosphere. Have a patio outside.
If u like your food full of oil go here service and bread was great but I took one look at my meal and oil was drowning in it. My boyfriend who is not gf also took one bite and was disgusted by the amount of oil and butter.
The soccas are amazing! Lots of options - just wish there were more dessert and beer options.
Good gluten free menu. She even brought out gf focaccia to start. The socca is different than pizza, but still pretty good. The gnocchi was cheesy and delicious!
Not a big fan... Pasta was horrible and service was worse. Maybe I caught it on a bad night.
First time here. Had brunch before a play. Extensive GF menu, excellent food, great service. Staff was knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. Baked gnocchi with cheese was fantastic.
I had lunch here, separate GF menu with lots of options. Waiter served GF bread slices with oil before the course, and the bread was actually very good: I had salad with grilled chicken which was excellent. I would have given 5 stars if I had something other than a salad.
Delicious! Amazing Gf bread and a great gf menu. Been there twice in two weeks! Haven't gotten sick (and I'm very sensitive) I recommend the gnocchi and grilled salmon.
Nice restaurant but pizza is not a real one just cheakpea base not really a pizza. Dedicated GF menu full of choice Nice focaccia appetizer outstanding one, if they will use it for the pizza I will give a6 stars
Great location, reasonable prices (for NYC), extensive GF options, wonderful cocktails. My kids loved the Sunday pasta and gnocchi. We also enjoyed the lamb and polenta.
The Socca was amazing! The gnocchi was very cheesy... more like a Mac and cheese, but incredible. possibly a better side dish. I'd go back just for more amazing socca. My family ordered salads and they were all good. and they thought the gluten free bread was better than the regular! Amazing dinner
Oh...my! The gluten free bread before the meal was so tasty! I had a socca with mushrooms as an appetizers - yummy and rack of lamb for dinner. When I saw the GF menu with so many choices, I almost cried! It was a delicious meal with a more than reasonable price point!
The GF options are amazing. I live the Pasta Pesto and the Socca!
Wow!! Everything was AMAZING!! Gf bread with ricotta and dipping oil was delicious! Had a vegetable chickpea pancake (like a pizza) and I loved it. Must eat at this place!!
Gluten free menu had great selection. So much so that I had trouble deciding what to order. Funghi Socca (chickpea "pizza") was outstanding! Even my non-celiac husband couldn't get enough of it. Also tried Eggplant Involintini and Pasta Al Pesto. All excellent. Will definitely be back.
Awesome choice for gluten free diners or not! GF bread was delish, lots of yummy menu options, and heavenly desserts and drinks! The staff was very attentive and helpful.
It's an amazing accomplishment when my husband prefers the gf bread over his standard gluten filled choice!
GF friendly posting at curb. Hostess asked how many GF menus before we even let them know we needed one. The GF Socca (chickpea pancake), GF gnocchi and GF Eggs Benedictino were awesome. Our plain jane was accommodated with buttered bow tie pasta. Would definitely return on our next trip to NYC.
Great for everyone. GF or not. Staff very friendly.
The eggplant involtini was delicious! The socca was just okay--the crust is kind of greasy, and I didn't get the kind I requested. The lighting is very dim, great for ambiance, but bad for noticing that they gave you the wrong dish until after you've eaten some of it. Otherwise service was good, though, the manager checked on us, and the gluten-free menu was impressively large and diverse.
The food here is incredible! I highly recommend the gluten free gnocchi. Delicious!
Food was fantastic! They were unfortunately out of gluten free bread when I went but the waiter was great. They even have gluten free desserts!
Great full Gluten Free menu and great taste!!!!!
We have eaten there a couple of times. Since my husband and I also have soy, dairy, and egg intolerance as well as celiac we found our choices more limited. But it does give us another place to eat even if our choices are limited.
Had wonderful gluten free gnocchi, and they even had GF bread for a starter! I hope to go back here every time I visit the city!
Yes it's the best NYC has to offer, is that good.
Great GF bread and pizza. Friendly staff. Highly recommend.
Amazing food, ate here many times before going gf. ordered here twice via gf menu. first time had gf pizza and caprese salad, no reaction and all were great. Ordered second time this time pasta, almost immediately had reaction-first stomach then headache. Maybe kitchen mixed up strainers or pots - will order pizza again but definitely avoiding pasta in the future.
Great food. Perfectly cooked pasta. Amazing bread. Friendly service. Reasonably priced.
Excellent mushroom pizza (more like a pancake) but I am so tired of cracker like pizzas!! Nice staff and good atmosphere.
had a socca and the rose sangria. not bad. also had the gf bread. flavorful but dry. had a reaction though. broke out w/ dermatitis herpetiformis :( very disappointed after all the great reviews.
I have eaten here a number of times. I am Celiac and my daughter is a vegetarian. Wait staff is knowledgeable, menu works for both of us, and I gorge on the GF bread because it is a rare treat in a restaurant!
Extensive gf menu including dessert. Knowledgable staff.
Brilliant staff & best GF beer available (Estrella Daura). Dedicated menu & open till midnight. Must visit!
Eaten here twice and will be back. Great selection of entrees, socca and desserts.
My gf sister had a great experience here. Gf bread which was great and excellent pasta. Lots of options, highly recommended.
Excellent food. My son has celiac and they took great care if him. Gluten free bread while we waited and fettuccine for dinner. We were relaxed knowing g they were so knowledgeable.
Fantastic food! They even serve you gluten free bread while you wait for your main course. Loved it.
Large GF menu. Knowledgable staff. Restaurant designed around meeting needs if those with gluten issues.
Delicious gluten free bread!! Magnificent gluten free menu w/ lots of options! This is my new fave restaurant!
Really great gluten free menu - lots of options and they seemed very aware of the gluten issue. I would definitely recommend this place.
Totally safe as far as gf, but a lot of the dishes are mediocre.
Huge GIG sign on menu outside. Very knowledgeable and safe staff. Bread!! Before dinner bread like everyone else gets to enjoy. The bread comes with olive oil and ricotta to dip into. I had the oven roasted penne it was really amazing. So cheesy, perfectly al dente pasta (corn), and sweet marinara sauce. This was easily one of the best restaurant gf meals I've had since dx in 2010. You won't be disappointed. Please note however the restaurant is not very big but they had outside seating during my visit in the summer. Happy eating!
Very good for a sophisticated palate. Items are unique. Staff is wonderful. Love the gluten free bread. It is brought to the table hot with dipping sauce. Desserts are great.
Great service and gluten free options. Actually really liked my gluten free pizza! Will definitely be going back.
Gluten free bread before dinner. Service was great. The oven roasted ziti was to die for! I highly recommend it.
Great food, great prices, great staff. Has a gluten-free menu, must try the Soccas. Definately a restaurant to add to your try list if in NY.
knowledgeable staff. pizza is also egg free as it is chickpea based but not my fav pizza.
Good variety of gluten free foods. I really loved their GF bread :) with olive oil. This would be a regular place to go if I lived in NY
Staff is very knowledgeable about GF issues and menu is extensive. I had a GF ziti and veggies dish that was outstanding. They take reservation, and the dining room is small. Great GF garlic bread to start things off!
