The variety and quantity of GF items on this menu is astonishing! It felt amazing to be able to have so many choices and to not worry about whether it would be celiac-friendly. The staff were friendly and made me feel confident I would be safe there. However, the prices are outrageous and I was honestly underwhelmed by the food. It was very mediocre and I’m not sure the GF-friendliness is worth the price. Definitely recommend to try at least once but I can’t say I’ll be back anytime soon.

Papazzio has an extensive gluten free menu. Most dishes can be made with gluten free spaghetti or rigatoni. The menu is clearly marked and the staff is very knowledgeable. Gluten free crackers and hummus are complementary too. I did feel that the food is overpriced - up-charge of $4.50 for gluten free is ridiculous in my opinion and I feel that I’ve had better Italian food for the price.

While they do have non-gf options, the owner and his daughter are both celiac, and their legal, dedicated certified gluten-free certification is framed and hanging on the wall in the establishment.

Forever grateful for papazizzo. They have a wide selection of gluten free options to choose from. Dominic the owner also has celiacs so he knows the risk of cross contamination.

Tonight I ate dinner at Papazzios in Bayside. First time eating out since I’ve moved back here last year because I’m nervous about contamination. It was delicious!! Everything I got was vegan AND gluten free. They give schar breadsticks (if you’re vegan you can have the regular bread, but my celiac self was thrilled) and they give bean dip as a starter at the table. Then I got pasta primavera. For us gluten free people, the owners daughter has celiac and everything is prepped separately and safely.they even bring the food out in a separate hand and at a separate time. Their pasta is corn and rice based so it’s vegan- yay! Was delicious and the waiter was INCREDIBLE! So nice and funny. My family loved it, too! Darius- you’re the best!!!

The staff was so knowledgeable about the gluten free diet and the menu had so many choices! Most of the dishes are marked gluten free or can be made that way. There are gluten free breadsticks served in lieu of bread so we could enjoy the homemade white bean dip. My husband ordered the gluten free chicken parm and I ordered the gluten free clams vongole. Both dishes were excellent! For dessert we were pleased to see just as many choices! We chose the gluten free Oreo mousse cake a la mode. It was amazing! We will definitely be back!

We have eaten here several times and are always confident that the meals will be prepared safely. The food is delicious and the staff is well educated in GF protocol. I knew the owner's daughter has Celiac, but learned here that the owner himself does too. I'm glad to find a reliable place to accommodate us for a night out!

Papazzio’s was a great experience! The owner has Celiac Disease so he is very familiar with necessary safeguards..Even better, the food is delicious!! Many GF options including ravioli. I had a GF cannoli for the first time in years. My husband raved Tiramisu was the BEST he has ever had! Staff was attentive and courteous-can’t say enough good things. Thank you for a great grad celebration dinner for our daughter Dottie B.

Went recently - Not sure if new owners but no more gluten free bread basket Instead got broken breadsticks in a cellophane bag No butter - hummus in a little bowl in an Italian restaurant. Got gluten free fried mozzarella Was 2 thick round breaded circles that were not melted & cold Ordered gluten free linguini alfredo Only had gluten free penne or spaghetti I got the spaghetti It was very yellow- like a butter sauce Not bad but not alfredo Gluten free plates had an orange sticker circle to mark them which was great Leftovers were also well packaged & marked w orange circle.
