Great food, and our server was really helpful. They have a gluten free menu but almost anything can be made gf, even deserts. I had some really good chicken with roasted potatoes, and it was delicious. Also, the Lucy’s cookies and the gelato are delicious.
My first review after six months of using this app- was diagnosed in October, this is definitely my first time being glutened. Ordered a breaded veal chop, double checked because didn’t know it would come out with bread crumbs, was assured it was fine. Left feeling more terrible by the second, ended up throwing up before getting back to my house. Have been sick for day and a half now. The other one star reviews confirm that the kitchen isn’t safe- read those for more evidence.
We were on a quick trip to New York and ate here twice because we loved it so much!!! We had the same waitress both times and she was so kind and welcoming. There were so many gluten free choices that it was hard to make a decision. I had the gluten free chicken Parmesan and it was fantastic! I have not had chicken Parmesan since I had to go gluten free over 4 years ago. It was so good that I had the same thing on my second visit. Also, the garlic bread and bruschetta (Our waitress brought us some to try)were excellent! My son and husband were raving about their pizza and pasta (not gf). We met the manager on our second visit and she was also so hospitable and even brought us out some gluten free cookies to take home! Can’t wait to go back one day!Fabulous food and service.....a must if you are in the area!!
I ordered the mushroom pasta, which failed the Nima test. Even though it failed, I’m always fine with the restaurant remaking the meal, but the waitress had an attitude about it. Manager came over and I ordered simple tomato’s and cheese but I couldn’t retest because I ran out of testers.
Excellent gluten free and non gf Italian food. If you are looking for a traditional NYC neighborhood Italian restaurant with an extensive gluten free menu then this place is for you. Rarely can a Celiac diner choose from a full 2 page menu - everything from garlic bread, appetizers, pizza, pastas, and a variety of parmigiana and beef, chicken and seafood entrees. Oh...and half a dozen dessert choices as well. But even better than the quality of the food was feeling we could really enjoy our meal because the kitchen and wait staff understood our gluten free needs. This is my new favorite restaurant! Make reservations because they get very busy and rightly so. Oh and a fabulous bar as well.
So sad to do this- I’ve loved this restaurant so much but last night my gluten free pasta had a normal angel hair gluten piece in it. I didn’t see it till several bites in. Luckily I did not get sick, but this is obviously not okay. The GM was super apologetic and they swore they do boil the pasta in separate water, but said they plate them next to each other so a piece of regular pasta got into my gluten free dish. So, unfortunately, eat at your own risk. They also offered me a Benadryl... so the understanding of what Celiac Disease is may not be high. It was an extremely busy night and I’ve never had an issue here on slower nights.
Told waiter about celiac, ordered GF, they brought out GF appetizers, but brought out normal wheat crust pizza for entrees. If I hadn't asked if it was GF (to double check) it would have been a disaster. Our experience indicates that they do not have sufficient process controls for this location to be safe for persons with celiac disease. They apologized and comped us the meal, but the trust damage was already done. Nice people, just not careful enough for celiac folks.
My only gripe is that for all the wonderful choices of sauce, they only have one gf pasta shape available - corkscrew! Their pasta and gf bread are Schar. My pasta was deliciously enjoyable aside from the fact that I couldn’t twirl it around my fork.
Great dinner! Very accommodating and we got our food within 10 minutes of ordering. Garlic bread and pasta were delicious! Had a gluten free menu with many choices. We had Jose as a waiter and we could not have asked for a better experience. He recommends the flourless chocolate torte if you leave room for dessert.
Awesome g-f menu! Safe for celiacs...waiter told me not to eat my husband's g-f bread. My order of g-f garlic bread was so tasty. The flourless chocolate cake is a must for dessert. I had the g-f pizza and it was one of the best I've had and I've been celiac-diagnosed for 5 years. Wait staff was very attentive and nice. Very highly recommend!!!
Be sure to ask for the gf menu when you're seated, it's separate from the regular menu. Big menu, lots of choices. The bread they use is the ciabatta roll from Schar, which is fine, at least you know it's safe. Easy walk from Museum of Natural History and they were not too crowded for lunch on a Saturday, we were seated right away.
A wonderful NYC experience for my Celiac daughter. The waiter was knowledgeable and the food delicious! She had pasta Alfredo with sautéed mushrooms and GF garlic bread, yes, garlic bread! And I had an equally tasty GF pizza. We sat on the outside patio and felt like "normal" diners. Perfect all around.
