    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
