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.
— Not very
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
— Not Much
Staff was knowledgable. Pasta is completely gluten free, prepared in a separate area. Pizza is NOT gluten free, as there is cross contamination.
Staff was knowledgeable about celiac with the server asking if celiac, allergy or sensitivity.
The staff at Manzo was very knowledgeable about celiac and made us feel safe. My daughter got the pasta with bacon and it was DELICIOUS! She had gelato as well. We actually went ahead and bought 2 bags of the dried pasta to take home. You could not tell it was GF! She did not get sick!
Gf pasta available. Staff are knowledgeable and want to know if it’s allergy or dietary. Had a great experience!
While the pizza isn’t 100% celiac friendly - the bake it in the same oven with their other pizzas - if gluten free is a preference vs an allergy this is by far the BEST gluten free pizza I’ve ever had! Also they do offer true gluten free pasta dishes and they are delicious!! So good I’ve come here 2X in a row!
La Pizza La Pasta at Eataly offers both GF pizza and pasta options. They can substitute all pasta dishes (except filled pastas and spaghetto pomodoro) with the GF option. I got the Cacio E Pepe and it was delicious! Staff was very knowledgeable, told me GF Pizza is cooked in same oven as regular pizza so avoid if you have celiac, but GF pasta should be safe for all.
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.
As a place to buy supplies, it’s fine, but after getting the run around from different staff at various places, when I finally spoke to a waiter, he told me there’s risk of contamination in all of their kitchens.
I’m not sure if they recently changed their menu option but they had no gluten free pasta options. Even the steak with no sauce couldn’t be done GF safely since they use a shared flat top grill with their focaccia bread (as told by the knowledgable waiter). The only option he recommended was the chicken as that was baked. I was fine eating it but the dish was very underwhelming and not very Italian for such an Italian spot.
We ate at Eataly after going to the 9/11 memorial. I was not impressed! They had a salad and they had a pasta option. The pasta was cooked al dente which I think must be a New York thing. I personally don’t care for it. We paid $24 for a pasta with a little sauce on it and I could not eat it. It just did not taste good (to me). Dine elsewhere if you’re celiac.
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!
The pasta is incredible! It takes extra time to cook it so be prepared to wait.
My only complaint is being Eataly, the fact that they only have one style of pasta that is completely free is a little sad.
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.
EXCELLENT experience! I ended up sitting at the bar, so I was able to watch my meal be cooked from start to finish. They use a noticeably different pan to cook the GF pasta, and my meal was delicious and carefully handled. I ordered a Lumache con Salsiccia e Finocchio. Great service too!
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 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.
