I will start by saying that my pizza was delicious, and I did not get sick. I was very concerned when they carried my pizza and a regular pizza literally on the same arm—they had them stacked overlapping, which always makes me very nervous... since it was an extended family gathering, I felt awkward not eating or complaining, so I took the risk, and thankfully was fine.
I was SO excited to try Nebo - it's been on my list for years. Their GF menu is amazing - but I got sick. My sister and I got the GF fried calamari and a GF pizza - she was fine (she's not GF) but I spent all night sick - so I had to have been glutened. What a bummer.
A wonderful spot in the Financial District with a diverse menu and knowledgeable staff. We've visited many times on special occasions and have always been treated and fed well. GF Pizzas are delicious, GF pasta is phenomenal, GF calamari is great too.
Had pizza(pepperoni) GF which tasted good. Pasta sauce smelled delicious that another had. Problem was I did not deviate from my normal eating other than this place and the next am I had lower GI issue. I don't have major reactions(though full Celiac) other than this and it was definitely something. Bummer as the other reviews look like there were no issues, possibly I was unlucky.
I have visited Nebo twice now and it is amazing. I've had the zuchini lasagna, a pasta dish, pizza and my new personal favorite the Vitello Milanese. Both times the waitresses were really knowledgeable and took the time to explain how they prepare their foods to minimize any cross contamination. Separate fryers, boiling water for pasta, and prep areas. Also explained that their GF pizza crust and pasta is their recipe, but made at a GF bakery and sealed, to ensure it is 100% GF. I don't remember the name of the first waitress, but this last time, Graziana was such a helpful, knowledgeable and courteous server. The food isn't cheap, but in this case you get what you paid for and more.
I've just eaten at their new location for the first time and I've brought my review down a star. The new spot is much nicer and the server was great, but the food (I got the zucchini lasagna, which I remember fondly from past visits) was decidedly worse. Medium hot and rather bland. Still would give it another shot but for gluten free Italian, Sportello down the road is now my first choice. Old review (five stars): Have dined here twice. Each time the food was delicious and the staff was knowledgeable. All of their fried food are gluten free so don't miss the calamari!
EXTREMELY overpriced for over cooked food. I went there because of the good reviews for celiacs, but my celiac sister and I sat there tonight while everyone else ate crostini bread and they had nothing for GF bread options. i was then told that a side order of GF pasta was $15, on top of my $22 rubbery thin chicken. The only reason I gave 1 star was that my meal was so simple, I don't know how they could have gotten me sick from gluten. Here's hoping.
Spectacular. As someone with celiac over 15 years, one of the best pizza crusts I've ever had. Calamari fried - light and delicious. Polenta and shrimp, amazing. Staff very well informed and understanding. And creative drinks great too. Can't recommend it enough. Great contemporary Italian. Loved it.
I have a dairy allergy and celiac and they were awesome! I've been there twice and haven't gotten sick at all. Waiter said they take cross contamination very seriously as soon as I said gluten allergy. The first time I got the pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe. It's certainly not "out of the box pasta". The second time I got a pizza with potatoes and bacon on it, no cheese. Both were delicious, but the pizza crust wins the title of best.
They have homemade pasta that is prepared in a desperate facility to avoid cross-contamination. My waitress had gluten intolerance and easily knew the ins and outs of Celiac. The pasta was the best gluten free pasta I have ever had. Because it has been so long since I have tasted real pasta, my Italian father tried a bite. He said he would have a hard time distinguishing it from its gluten-filled cousin. I have grown up with homemade recipes passed down through generations, so I was devastated to have such disappointing pasta options. Normally the GF pasta is grainy in texture or tastes like corn. Somehow this restaurant made their rice pasta to be able to compete with regular pasta.
Love love love Nebo. Have many here at least half a dozen times. I get the gluten free menu and the boyfriend gets the regular but we usually split a GF appetizer which I HIGHLY recommend, the timbalo di melanzana. I would give 5 stars if they had a gluten free roll/bread stick/something to start with or accompany the pasta dishes. Also, on the dedicated gluten free menu the prices are listed without the added cost for making it gluten free which to me defeats the purpose of having a solely gluten free menu.
