I just revisited Agata. They just keep adding wonderful options in their prepared food area. (fully gluten free showcase) They added more fresh pasta as well. The bakery also keeps adding new items such as pastries and breakfast goodies. What a treat it’s all gluten free and delicious. I just had their Broioche French toast warmed with syrup and my son had their egg and cheese on a bun. They have stools inside and outside tables now too. Any caputo flour used is safe, they don’t exceed the legal threshold for celiac.

Today was Agata & Valentina’s grand opening for their second location (2,000 square feet of space) across the street from their store at 1513 First Avenue at 79th Street in NYC. All the prepared food at this location is FULLY gluten free! The store offers prepared foods similar to their other store, grocery items, a pizza bar, pastries, breads, coffee bar, ice cream and more. Many products from Italy. It was amazing, they have turkey meatballs chicken tenders and chicken cutlets, turkey burgers, fried zucchini, fresh homemade pizza (which we ate once we got home and it was incredibly good!), fresh pastas, homemade ciabatta and focaccia and so much more! The croissant and the cheesecake were delicious. They also offer a lot of vegan and dairy free options.

So I’m not sure if people know this but when I visited all of their prepared food was made with flour containing wheat dextrin which is still controversial to be eaten by celiacs. Something to keep in mind.

A Celiac's dream. ALL prepared foods are GF. They have no cross contamination. Valentina herself has Celiac. My 15 year-old LOVES their food. Please support this business. One note of caution, some of the packaged foods are not GF, so read carefully.

All I can is wow!!! This gourmet gluten free market has everything one with celiac can ask for with prepared foods that include breaded chicken tenders/fingers, several different types of focaccia style and regular style pizzas, and homemade pastas. Breakfast? Yup- Not only do they have muffins, croissants, and bagels, but also ready to order egg sandwiches and French toast. This is a must visit in NYC!

Amazing majority gluten free market! A few pantry and freezer items are not gf but otherwise everything else in there is safe to eat. All the food they cook and bake is prepared in a safe kitchen with no contamination. The focaccia was delicious as was the fresh ciabatta bread. I enjoyed the chocolate chip scone (the chocolate chip croissant not as good - I have yet to find a good gf croissant in the city). They also sell freshly made pasta in the refrigerated section, which was quite yummy. Lots of other goodies (pizza, etc) and prepared foods like breaded chicken. So happy they have opened!!

This place is a GF haven! It’s more of a market we they have loads of GF and/or vegan products, but they also make loads of food on-site. As far as I can tell, everything they make fresh is GF. Small pizzas, bagels, sandwiches, focaccia, muffins, cheesecake, all sorts of things. Today, I only had a blueberry muffin but it was really delish.

All of the cooked food and desserts is clearly labeled 100 percent gluten free with no cross contamination. In addition to cooked food it’s like a gluten free grocery store with a lot of gluten free options available. The reason I give it 4 stars is because they do have certain items within the refrigerator such as ice cream that contains gluten so it is not dedicated gluten free

My new favorite! My first time EVER ordering a slice of pizza as a New Yorker was this Sicilian slice. The focaccia is really incredible along with the huge selection of baked goods, including selections from local bakeries like Sans and Knead Luv. A great place to grab a quick lunch - even though it’s pricy, it’s much cheaper than most GF restaurants and high quality. All prepared food is GF, but please note that not all groceries are GF! They have a big selection of GF snacks, Schar bread, fresh pasta, etc. I’ve also heard rumors that they use wheat starch in their flour blend (which is not labeled), so those with wheat allergies should ask.
