I have a wheat allergy so stepping foot in Eataly was a bad idea. Headache and fatigue about five minutes after being there. I shopped for 20 minutes and found wheat replacements for both pasta and crackers before sitting down at Osteria. By then I had worked up an appetite for pasta, only to be informed that they only serve gf pasta at one of the other restaurants. Because we were settled into a bottle, we opted to sit tight. We ordered the charcuterie plate - it was delivered beautifully, but without any explanation of what was on the board (and it wasn’t listed on the menu). I opted for the octopus and broccoli, which were both good, but not mind blowing for the price. Overall the Osteria service was blah - I haven’t left a 15% tip in a long time.

Dessert wasn’t offered - we went downstairs for gelato that was delicious and reasonably priced.

I won’t go back - wasn’t worth the physical ailments.

The most ahhmazing gluten free PIZZA🍕 It was the best pizza I've ever had, including "real" pizza before being diagnosed with celiac. Please note that the pizza is cooked in the same oven as the other pizzas, so you're taking a risk. I am SUPER sensitive to cross contamination and did not get sick.

I found they did not offer a gluten free menu. They had many options that would be considered gluten free, but I had to work hard to sort out any cross contamination issues. The area we ate in did not serve gluten free pasta, but a different area did. I find this to be totally ridiculous. As a newly diagnosed celiac I did not feel extremely comfortable eating there. I love this place so I truly hope they can figure out how to introduce a gluten free menu and gluten free pasta throughout the restaurants. Also, education of the staff would make it much easier to navigate. Maybe some gluten free bread-wow that would be amazing!

Lots of yummy gf options. I've had great pasta here, and this visit we were in a hurry so I was advised to go to the rotisserie. I had amazing prime rib with potatoes and greens. There are also several gf dessert options at the coffee bar.

Their whole fish with skin on is to die for! so many flavors of citrus and Herb with a delicious crispy skin and a light flaky interior that they will debone for you at the table. the assorted root vegetables have a delicate butter glaze that seem to have a hint of Dill . Honestly, it was beyond fabulous . Excellent presentation and as always wonderful wine pairings everywhere.

Ate here last weekend with my daughter. They are more dismissive with my concern than dutiful, but I think because they deal with it all the time. They answered all the right questions about using a separate pot, etc. They can do any of the pastas (except ravioli of course). However, I ordered off the fresh section instead of Imported, and they didn't tell me until I was finished that it was sold in a package in their store, not make by them. But it was good anyway. I had the seafood pasta with a tomato/wine sauce, and my daughter loved her Buccatini. They had a good Italian wine I enjoy at home As well. For dessert I went downstairs and had the granita. I think I could have had the gelato but didn't want to think about CC. Great service and I would come again if my family "needed" Italian.

I had gluten free pasta with Italian bacon. This is actually several testaurants or cafes and a large Italian food store owned by Mario Batali (he's a Food Network Italian chef). I had Casarecce all' Amatriciana, gluten free pasta, guanciale (Italian bacon), red onion, tomato, chili flake and pecorino Romano cheese. It was so good! I am tried some cheeses and the tartufo salami. I had the GF semifreddo (made with a rice flour sponge cake base) for dessert. I also bought some GF pasta and cookies to take home. Fun place!

The waitress seemed less than excited about having to deal with a Celiac. That should have tipped me off. I got very ill last night and felt awful today. I suspect stray non GF noodles.

Had plenty of options at the pasta restaurant. My son and I both Celiacs ate with no reaction. We finished with gf mousse desserts from La Pasticerria. Very good.

I avoided the pasta area- and simply went with the small plates, cheese and vegetables. I bought a bag of fabulous Gf potato chips to help with my cheese plate. Fantastic!

We only had a few minutes to walk around the first floor where they have a coffee bar with mini desserts. They had 4 or 5 GF options including a delicious GF tiramisu.

THE BEST GLUTEN FREE PASTA EVER. There are several places to eat here but I make my way straight to the pasta restaurant. Any pasta on the menu can be done GF except for stuffed pastas. I has no idea if there are other GF offerings in the building because I just can't eat anything else! You can buy the pasta here too.

We tried to go here for some pastries. When we called to check about cross contamination, we were told not to worry. Upon arriving, we were told everything came in contact with wheat. Save yourself time and aggravation and skip this place.

I had a delicious pasta in their pizza and pasta restaurant. There were quite a few gluten-free options in the restaurant but pizza was not GF. The pasta was cooked perfectly al dente and was delicious. The best part of the night was buying a pastry from the pastry counter- so many to choose from. I chose a classic Tiramasu and it was wonderful. I am planning my next trip to Chicago as I head to the airport so I can go back here.

Ordered their gluten free pizza and was sick for 2 days afterwards. I was skeptical when the receipt came back "gluten light." Not sure why such a thing exists, but in any event this is definitely not safe for celiacs. They do have excellent gluten free pastas and sweets available in their grocery section however.

They have gluten free penne noodles, but their gluten friendly pizza is loaded with cross contamination.

The gluten friendly pizza is amazing, I just wish they used different kitchen space to get rid of cross contamination. Their gf penne noodles and everything else naturally gf is great though.
