    Marcello changed his menu when one of his clients was diagnosed as a Celiac. He had a doctor explain what he needed to do in order to keep a GFree menu. He has GFree bread, and many options. We Nima tested the raviolis and they passed. It will be our midtown spot! And reasonable!

    Went here with a party of 15 for my birthday, I was the only celiac but they are very accommodating, almost entire menu can be gluten free! I got the personal Margherita pizza which came out in a special aluminum tray to avoid any cross contamination. They even brought gluten free bread to start! To end they brought a complementary dark chocolate mousse. It is on the more expensive side but a great treat and I would recommend the restaurant to anyone looking to eat Italian food in the midtown area!

    If you are wanting pizza this is bit the place to go. However the pasta was amazing and they bring gluten free bread to dip in oil. Good atmosphere and knowledgeable staff.

    Large menu. Food was excellent. Everything marked GS on menu can be prepared GF, which is like 75% of menu. Staff is very knowledgeable and as they brought items to the table they even said “Gluten free _” instead of just “_”.

    I have eaten here twice and both times were fantastic! Tried the fettuccini Alfredo and the cheese ravioli. The cheese ravioli was probably the best I’ve ever had. They bring you gluten free bread without even having to ask. Definitely a must try!

    based on reviews we made reservations before seeing hamilton. we arrived in the city very late due to traffic. we called to make sure they could still accommodate me (gf/df/sf/grain free). they said no problem. i ordered plain salmon & grilled veggies. my nima found gluten in the fish (the first time i used it no less). the manager was nice about it but kept throwing the blame elsewhere...like to where they purchased the fish. i would definitely not recommend.

    Not a good pizza spot. I didn’t try the pasta - other reviews say that it is good and based on the slurping sounds the guy a couple tables away is making, it may be. Also, the toilet doesn’t flush.

    Amazing food and atmosphere. Make sure to reaerve a table on Open Table or they “won’t have any tables open”. They were knowledgeable on Gluten Allergies and had everything marked on their menu. Had a GF beer, Ravioli, Cesar salad and WARM brown GF bread. Can’t say enough good things. My wife who is not GF loved her food as well.

    great place, quiet Tues. evening, the warmed gf bread with OO and parm. cheese was nice treat that I've missed for 6 yrs being GF. Pollo scarpiello with gf penne was spicy and flavorful; only complaint was quantity of chicken and sausage was a little light. Not Celiac; however severe reaction when in contact or X-contam.

    Numerous GF options so choosing was hard. Had mussels appetizer, then stuffed chicken with mushrooms sauce and shared the ravioli. All excellent. Nice atmosphere and decent prices considering you’re in NYC. Hot GF roll was quite tasty.

    Such a great experience. So many choices! My husband is not celiac and he had the most amazing sea bass. When they served me gluten free brown bread I was sold! I had a penne and chicken that was delicious. My husband and I split an appetizer of mussels which was delicious as well. When they offered us dessert we had to refuse we had no room. We will go back soon.

    Staff was super nice! I had cheese ravioli with a tomato cream sauce and a daura beer---gluten free dreams were made from this meal. They also have gf pizza and spaghetti and seems like they can make almost anything gf if you ask, also had a tasty salad and whole grain gf bread.

    Food was delicious they had G.F. Bread. Menu clearly marked. I'm writing this the next day no issues. The only thing I expect it to be expensive in that location but I was a little put off they charged me for a soda refill no one charges for that.

    Solid Italian meal. Portions were modest. GF pasta was a little mushy, but the sauces were flavorful and the GF bread with the mussels was a bonus. Good option near theatre district and Rockefeller Plaza.

    Great food! Completely Celiac friendly. We found this restaurant by using findmeglutenfree app and couldn't have been happier! My son had gluten free raviolis and my daughter and I had gluten free pasta. There was SO MUCH to choose from that is gluten free. From fish to pasta, you will not be disappointed. The menu is clearly marked and the wait staff is extremely knowledgeable.

    Overpriced, touristy, terrible food. The positive reviews baffle me. We were nauseous after we ate--but not from cross-contamination. GF pasta with oily, bland Alfredo sauce and tasteless pizza. The room was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think. $22 for pasta at lunch! The staff was friendly and attentive, though.

    A little pricey but very Celiac-safe and the food was great! I had their specialty salad and chicken with penne and vodka sauce. Absolutely excellent! They have fresh gluten free bread too. They offer gluten free beer and hard cider but I had wine. $60 for one glass of wine, salad, and entre (with tip) but worth it to be safe and eat really good food. The restaurant has a really nice atmosphere and feel too.

    Wonderful! Separate cookware for everything, they serve you gluten free bread (!!!!!!!) and everything is wonderfully delightful. If I lived in NYC I would eat here far too much, it's amazing. I would suggest making a reservation to make sure you can get a table without waiting.
