The gf focaccia was delicious, the pizza crust was amazing, and the server was knowledgeable. My gluten-eating friends were happy as well (even with the gf bread). An extensive gf menu

This restaurant was fantastic for two celiacs!They have a separate gluten free “friendly” menu that is front and back. They were more than happy to serve me, which is usually not my experience. My guest and I ate different pasta dishes and CHEESE CAKE! I was seriously so pleased and can’t wait to go back again.

Bread while waiting.
Yummy pasta
Gluten-Free Pasta at Nizza
I think this was the GF Sunday pasta (sausage was best part), and the Gnocchi. Sauce was bland overall and not enough sauce, pasta kind of dry for my liking.
GF Nicoise Pizza Pie veganized (ordered without parm cheese)
This was the special pizza of the day, fennel sausage, pickled bell peppers, tomatoes, mozzarella, Parmesan, and I think banana peppers(?).  Deeelish!
Easy to find. Has indoor and outdoor seating.

We found this place during a trip to NYC. Everyone in my family has a different dietary concern-dairy free, gluten free, keto. We all found plenty of dishes to satisfy our tastes. They handled our special requests flawlessly. The food was so delicious. The ambiance was very charming. We sat outside on a lovely evening. The wait staff were well trained and took great care of us! My GF daughter was impressed with the GF gnocchi.

They have a separate gf menu. Our server was very knowledgeable about gluten and warned me about a drink I was interested in because it was made with grain alcohol. Everyone was nice and all the food was delicious!

We went here twice on our vacation and both times the staff were very knowledgeable and aware of gluten. Saw I had the gluten free menu and asked about my severity and asked about any other allergies. Gave great recommendations on different items. No reaction and absolutely the best pasta dishes I've had!!!

Excellent house made pasta. I had the pesto with a tagliatelle style noodle which was delicious, but the star of the show was a side of warm focaccia bread with olive oil and creamy cheese. The server was attentive to the need for GF. Also perfect for the dinner break between Harry Potter parts 1&2.

At one point our server came by to ask if we wanted more of the GF bread, which we all agreed was delicious. She said 'I love the GF bread. I just can't resist grabbing a piece when I go by it in the kitchen'. This casts a lot of doubt on how well-trained the staff are. Well meaning, definitely. Well trained about cross contamination? NO.

The food and atmosphere were fine, but I am glutened now and there are no other likely causes. Proceed with caution. This review is given stars by the app and gives my review a lot of stars. Not sure why. I have no doubt that I was glutened here.

There was an extensive separate gluten free menu. The staff was informed and was very accommodating by answering all of my questions. I had a pepperoni socca which is described on the menu as a thin chickpea pancake (which is their version of a gluten free pizza). It was awesome.

The staff was very knowledgeable and I was impressed they had a separate gf menu. Our son had the gf socca, he was a little disappointed with the crust, it’s made with a chickpea pancake so it was difficult to pick up and eat like a traditional pizza. The restaurant was very nice and all the staff was friendly.

Really like this place and have been here many times. They changed the pizza crust, now it’s just a soggy chickpea pancake. Plenty of GF options but the pizza is not one of them. Sadly. Just stick with the pasta options.

They DON’T have gluten free pizza. They have an alternative “crust” made of chickpea that was soft in the middle. Plan to eat it with a fork and knife. Very bland. I would NOT recommend if you’re expecting pizza

Waiter was chill and welcoming. He payed close attention when I explained my celiac to him, he understood and ensured that my meal would be completely safe. He told me the gluten free dishes are cooked in a separate part of the kitchen which is the best news for a celiac. I ordered the spaghetti and tomato sauce which was divine. The gluten free pasta was cooked to perfection as well as the gluten free bread. Gluten free menu had many options. 100% recommend if your in the area or live in NYC!

I ordered the eggplant rollatini off the gluten free menu after explaining I have celiac. I tested it in my Nima sensor and it found gluten! When I spoke with the manager he vehemently denied that they use any gluten products in this dish and asked if the Nima is FDA certified. I said "it doesn't matter whether it is FDA certified - I'm not eating that eggplant". He seemed to already know that others found the same result when testing the dish in the Nima. They need to remove that dish from their GF menu! Thankfully they gave us entire meal for free. Nima saved me here.

I went here for pizza which I was disappointed with. The server addressed that the pizza would be a different texture because it is made out of chickpea flour. The pizza was mushy, fell apart and was lacking flavor. While I do not recommended the pizza, there were other gluten free options on the menu.

They have a gluten free menu with quite a few options and they will bring you a basket of gluten free bread to dip in olive oil. The gluten free burrata was amazing!

The food was safe with no reactions but was very bland. The complementary GF bread was the best part of the meal. The tomato sauce on the gnocchi left a lot to be desired but the texture of the gnocchi itself was good. The sausage on spaghetti saved the dish because there was hardly any sauce on the spaghetti and otherwise flavorless.

I was impressed by the options on the gluten free menu. I opted to try the “socca” -chickpea crust pizza. What a disappointment. The crust had a weird soggy consistency in the middle and tasted burnt on the edges. The only reason I gave the restaurant two stars was for the focaccia bread that came with the salad.
