Fantastic!! Had a wonderful experience here! The staff is very helpful, and basically told me to pick what I wanted from the menu and they would modify it to be gluten free! They have gluten free pasta, pizza, and tiramisu :) yum yum!

Stumbled upon the gluten free lasagna sign out this morning and instantly made a reservation for dinner. Did not disappoint. Very good! Solid service. Only suggestion is to dim the lights at dinner (a lot). Also had gluten free pizza and it was great. Need better Prosecco. Remove the gluten free tiramisu from the menu until it can be served cold (not microwaved and hot).

Wrote this before leaving and updating while waiting for the bill. Little turn. 9:20pm on a Saturday and they started closing around us. Pulling outdoor flowers inside and breaking down and cleaning the seafood window display next to us - with vinegar and we were the table right next to the window display they were cleaning. We had a really nice experience until this point.

Also the google listing online says - CLOSED - … yet they are very open.

Staff knowledgeable about what could be done GF. Pasta was delish! Tiramisu was clearly microwaved though- hot on the outside and cold in the middle. Still yum though and courtyard was cute

It was a fine meal but not great. My carbonara did not look like the one pictured in the reviews. The egg looked scrambled. It again tasted fine, but way below my expectations given these other reviews. No gf bread and did not stay for dessert. Maybe because we were there around 8 and they were closing? Which seems so early but there were only a few other tables there. I haven’t had a reaction yet so I think you’re safe eating here but really can’t recommend with all the other gf places around.

Wish I had better things to say as I was looking forward to this meal based on the other reviews. Hoping my experience was a fluke but truly felt like a sub-par tourist trap.

They knew exactly what I could and couldn’t have, so many options from lasagne, pizza, pasta, beer, tiramisu and more. Immediately brought my GF bread and it was unreal - nice and warm still. Food came out so quick, never had a GF lasagne out before! Staff were so friendly and nothing was too much. BEST place in Venice

Great service, very hospitable. When the waiter was not sure about a GF question he asked. Table next to us were smoking a lot and they moved us to a private courtyard. Gluten free bread and crackers. Separate side of kitchen for GF. Gluten free fried calamari. All pastas and pizza can be GF. Excellent food!!!!

They advertise gluten free food. I got the lasagna gluten free, and my friend got the regular one. Mine was clearly from a package and microwaved. Hers seemed homemade. Both lasagnas were 14 euro's, but they charged 3 euro's extra for my gluten free one, which was literally microwaved. Dont go here.

Amazing experience, great price, extremely friendly service, dedicated gluten free oven and fryer. The pizza was quite delicious and drinks were fantastic. Our server brought me out gluten free breadsticks as if he wanted to make sure I had the best dining experience he could provide me. Felt safe eating there and have had no reaction. Would 100% recommend to any celiac stressing about eating authentic Italian food while in Venice.

This restaurant is part of the hotel. It is not a dedicated gluten free facility but they do have multiple gluten free options. They also have a dedicated oven for gluten free pizzas which is why we chose this restaurant after having reactions with those without dedicated gluten free cooking spaces. We happened to arrive right at opening so that made us more confident that there would be less cross-contamination. The pizzas were delicious. My child with celiac did not have a reaction.

Told them I was celiac, got the pizza with all sorts of stuff on it like the house pizza or something. Was at the bottom of the pizza menu. Was assured it was gf. My partner and I shared squid ink pasta, again assured gf. I was straight in the toilet after. I had to rush to the air BnB after. Barely made it: proper and immediate reaction.

Service was very friendly. They can make and pizza or pasta gf. I am df so I got a pizza with no cheese and I was surprisingly let down based on past reviews. The dough tastes pre made/frozen. Maybe because this is the end our Italy trip but it’s the worst gf pizza dough so far. Very average.

We order a pasta and pizza dish, tested it with the NIMA and both came out smiley. It seems like the pizza could’ve been bad, since well, it’s pizza. However though, it seems that the separate ovens provided enough safety and protection to keep it gluten free.

So incredibly accommodating! We had an excellent meal here. They really went above and beyond to explain that they have a separate area of their oven (the top) for GF pizza only. They also explained they needed extra time to boil fresh water for the GF pasta. Would definitely recommend and wish we were here longer, so we could go back.

We found this place and ordered a pizza to go. We asked the waiter if we could get it "senza glutine,". He said yes. A different waiter delivered the pizza box to us. Again we asked if it was "senza glutine." Again, yes. Got back to our apartment and ate the pizza already n'y with a salad (that we made). Thereafter I took a walk around Venice. I can assure you the pizza was not gluten free. I had to run the entire way back to the apartment. These people were not careful. I hate them and feel betrayed.

Ive gone to Venice and a lot of people say gluten free etc easy to come by. I'm sorry it's not unless you like fish or salad which as a Coeliac is gluten free, but my point of view is lazy. I'm in Italy I want pizza and pasta. ok pasta is easier to come by but 95% is just out of packet. After 4 hrs I came across this bar san Miguel gluten free lager which is wonderful because Italians don't know what cider is and gluten free lager is gold dust, especially in a bar. they did pizza and puddings and is really quaint restaurant, friendly staff it's of beaten track from all visitors but worth it about 10 min walk from St Marks square. give it a go
