    Gluten free. I don’t get sick but the pizza was gross! Not even actual pizza. Just smushed chick peas with some sauce and light cheese.

    Note: This rating is for taste, not safety. I️ did not have a reaction, but with all of the amazingly delicious gluten free food I️ have found (and cooked myself!), I️ was horrified at how one could ruin a pizza. We had an exhausting drive from MA to NYC for a work trip, and were starving and just wanted to eat. What I️ got was a “pizza” that “wasn’t cut because the crust is too fragile.” When I️ tried to cut the pizza, it literally turned to mush it was so soggy! I️ has to fold it over like a calzone, and it has prosciutto on top that made me look like an animal eating it because it was so stringy. I️ said something and she offered to replace it, but we were so exhausted and starving that I struggled through...but my ginger ale from the hotel had more taste to it than that ever could. Thought I’d warn everyone else: there’s gotta be something better around here.

    Gluten free menu is great. They brought out gluten free bread that is so good it will make you wonder if it's really gluten free! Gnocchi was amazing. Each time they brought a dish to the table, they made sure to confirm it was gluten free which made me feel very safe!

    I ordered delivery from this place and it wasn’t that great. The pasta hardly had any sauce and it was undercooked. The bread was okay. I will give it another chance but I would never do delivery again. Hard to find gluten free pasta places here.

    Very tasty pasta. Staff knows about gluten free diet and very friendly. A bit loud and noisy but thats quite normal in Manhattan I guess..

    They had a separate menu and gluten free bread for a free starter that was good. It was safe to eat, but the Gf pizza crust was not very good tasting. There were tons of other options on the menu. The tomato soup was delicious and so was the peach Bellini martini!

    The staff was extremely knowledgeable about celiac and they had a great selection of gluten free options. The gluten free bread was focaccia and it was delicious. The service was also fantastic. They gave us a complementary gf dessert of cheese cake with a gf biscotti crust. Delicious! My daughter has celiac and she had a great meal and did not have any issues.

    I specifically said I have a dairy problem and there was some hidden dairy in my food anyway. Otherwise, yummy gluten free bread for the table and delicious spaghetti. Bitter about the dairy but no gluten reaction.

    Gluten free pizza was just so-so, but it had fresh mozzarella and basil. Since this isn't what my daughter is use to with pizza I think her opinion may differ from others. She loved having gluten free bread to have while we waited and said it was very good. The service was also outstanding.

    This would have been a five star review. However, the cross contamination protections ended in the kitchen. The food runner, stacked the regular pizza plates on top of the gluten free pizzas. Celiac daughter was too nervous and afraid to eat. Food was great. Waitress was fantastic. Would ask manager to oversee order.

    The absolute best gluten free menu I could ask for in an Italian restaurant! The gf menu is huge, no worry for cross contamination and the best surprise of all is that they serve you your own gf bread! And it isnFRESH AND DELICIOUS! my boyfriend told me he liked my bread better than the "normal" bread, which we all know never happens!!!

    Very friendly staff and all very aware of GF issues. We were seated by the manager and when I asked about GF pizza he explained the process they use to make their own GF pizza crust. He also explained how careful they are to avoid cross contamination. The service was excellent. And how could I almost forget, they serve GF bread with your meal. It was delicious. I usually watch my friends eat bread when we go out, but today I had my bread to eat too! I'm so glad we tried Nizza! The pizza was good too, of course! 😊

    Let me start by saying the service at Nizza is the best we've had in NYC. Both our server and the manager couldn't have been more personable. The warm GF focaccia bread is to die for. The Carbonara and Sunday pasta were equally as amazing. My only regret is that we were so full that we didn't have room for the GF cheesecake. Yes, we will be back! 10 stars!

    Service was great. I selected this restaurant because I read many reviews saying they were Celiac-friendly. It was. We showed up 30 minutes early and they sat us right away. Tables were very cramped, but the service was great. I had,the gluten free pizza made with chickpea flour. Delicious!

    Very aware of Celiac's Disease and extremely accommodating... even gluten free bread served!! Wouldn't recommend the pizza at all though, not good and definitely not worth it for the price. However, I would definitely go back and try something else on their abundant gluten free menu!

    Everything was amazing! Nothing tasted gluten free! They give focaccia bread which was enjoyed by both gf and non-gf diners. The pesto pasta was so fresh and pasta cooked perfectly.

    I love that they serve gf bread with dipping oil before your meal. I have been here a few times, always felt fine after. I uploaded a picture of my last to go order Gnocci, it is much better when you eat at the restaurant though.

    The "pizza" isn't really pizza at all, it's more like a weird crepe that is roughly 10" wide. Bread that is brought to the table is good, but it's like 2 little pieces of their focaccia, which I guess is cool but this place really isn't worth visiting if you want gf pizza.

    you shall not be disappointed. went there because of the reviews. went back because they were right!! the eggplant appetizer was the bomb and the gnocchis were the best I've had. just like my italian falcone and bodio relatives used to make me from scratch when I was a non-celiac kiddo. the complimentary starter of gf herbed bread with olive oil was a fantastic, unexpected treat. loved every single bite.
