Service and food were impeccable! Every staff member we encountered were knowledgeable about the gluten free options and ensured every item was served correctly! What a great atmosphere with awesome food! All 5 members of our party were thankful this was our first meal of our visit!
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.
Very knowledgeable with gluten free. Had gluten free bread for the table. GF pizza was good, but a very flat crust made from chickpea flour. Quite different if you are looking for pizza with a more traditional crust. Service was very good.
My absolute FAVORITE gluten free place in Midtown. I’ve been coming here for five years, the menu changes a bit seasonally, and their gluten free menu has most of the same dishes as the regular menu. Utterly delicious and wonderful service.
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.
Gluten found in the eggplant... with all these positive reviews I was sure we were safe. Used the nima sensor once, called the manager and did it again in front of them and gluten found was displayed again. Horribly disappointing. Be safe stay away.
I ALWAYS come here when in NYC. GF focaccia bread to start is really wonderful, not just a GF piece of bread but fresh baked focaccia. Lots of GF pasta options. No gf pizza tho. All but 1 of their desserts is GF. Lovely, lovely restaurant
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! We also tried the socca - it was good, but definitely different. I haven't had any reactions, And the waiter was great - very friendly and helpful!
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.
My wife is a physician and is Celiac, along with our two children. This was the worst dining experience ever. Chickpea pizza crust was the worst gf pizza that they have ever had. My non gf pizza was mushy and not good. My wife and other daughter’s gf pasta dishes were left uneaten. We all went next door to Five Napkins Burgers. I was left behind to pay the bill. When I told the waiter that we did not want to box up our meals because the gf pizza was the worst that we have had, he got an attitude and demanded to know where I had better pizza. I told him everywhere. Frozen gf supermarket pizza is better. Who are you people that gave this place a star more than one?
i cannot say enough great things about nizza. i had dinner here in january before seeing bruce & they were phenomenal. i had a main course and dessert, which is rare bc i am gf/grain free/df/sf. my nima approved dinner as well. we came back a couple of months for sunday brunch, with no reservation after a nima fail. the gm was in this location at the door. he couldn't have been kinder. they only had bar seating but walked us over and went over my options for food. the bartender was very charming as well and never ever do you feel like you are imposing. they truly make you feel like *a regular* patron. highly highly recommend.
They have a separate GF menu with LOTS of options. I have celiac and ate there multiple times on vacation and didn’t get sick. The food was delicious and even my dad who isn’t GF really liked what I ordered and whatever he ordered. I tried several of the pasta dishes and desserts (I never tried the pizza so I can’t speak for that). The GF bread was delicious!!
This place is AMAZING. They use La Veneziane gluten free pasta imported from Italy, and even have different types of pasta to choose from! I got the gnocchi and it was to die for (and not from!) I’m also dairy free, so I couldn’t have the bread, but the server knew the bread had dairy in it right away which I really appreciated. Also, when my partner and I were looking at the gluten-free menus, the server asked us if either of us had celiac disease. I said that I did, and he said he would go alert the kitchen immediately. Everyone was extremely knowledgeable about gluten and cross-contamination. So sad that I’m from Massachusetts, but will come back every time I visit NY!
So far I just had a vegan GF personal pie (Nicoise without cheese) as a takeout order. It tasted better than it looked (see pic) and it was a good size for 1 person. If you want a traditional pizza dough then their chickpea will not do the trick for you. You can visit Don San Anontio for that. However, I found it tasty and enjoyed it. I was looking for something different since I tend to get the same lunches and this did the trick for me. I will go back to try their pasta. And most important, no negative reaction and prices not too bad for nyc and gf.
They have great bread w cheese dip/olive oil, but the food wasn’t that great. Lots of GF to choose from but pizza crust only so so. Doesn’t hold a candle to Don Antonio’s! Pasta carbonara barely has sauce. Nice atmosphere. I wouldn’t recommend.
