This place is great! When ordering I mentioned I'm gluten intolerant and the server let me know they have gf ziti noodles. I actually loved them over having regular fettuccine noodles. My husband got gf noodles too, so we could share our meals. I would recommend this place to everyone! We also had a delicious Caesar salad and our daughter loved the spaghetti noodles and marinara.

We ate at Pastini's for the first time a few weeks back. My daughter is celiac. They were very informed and aware of GF sensitivities and also let us now the owners have celiac in the family. My daughter had the Carbonara but we understand they can substitute GF pasta for most any of the dishes. We had a great dinner with no complications and will be back.

Good GF pasta. Almost everything can be made GF. A few vegan options as well! One of my go to spots for Italian food!

I ordered lunch and I said I was Celiac and they showed me what all I could order, what I could change to be sure was gluten free and things they were unable to change. The cooked and prepared my meal separate and in a pan rather than on the cook top because I said Celiac. Made sure I knew which order was mine from the lunch orders.

No more gluten free tiramisu 😭 obviously the reason i came (the distributor stopped selling gf lady fingers and they couldn't find them anywhere else) but the staff were all super knowledgeable and friendly. The food was pretty awesome, so i will still come back and recommend to others.

This was my second-favorite restaurant while visiting the Portland area. The service was good and the staff knowledgeable. It made me feel extra-safe that my gluten-free orders came with a little gluten-free flag, as I didn't have to double-check whether my food had been made gluten-free. The prices were on the higher end, but the deliciousness of the mac and cheese, rigatoni zuccati, and gluten-free tiramisu justified the cost. I recommend!

I have Celiac and ate lunch here. The waitress said I could eat here but about 20 min after lunch, I didn't feel well. I had the worst gluten reaction I've had since I was diagnosed 2.5 years ago. I will not eat at another Pastini again and do NOT recommend for Celiacs.

They have a lot of options for gluten free although, like most restaurants, they include a liability clause saying they can't guarantee any dish to be completely gluten free. I had the gluten free spaghetti and basil pesto which was awesone. Not the best gluten free pasta I've ever had, was a bit gummy, but the pesto was great.

I think the key with this restaurant is to be very clear about how you need your food prepared. I asked if they could cook the pasta in clean water and a pan and clean utensils and no bread and I didn't get sick. Maybe I got lucky? But I hope they open one of these in California soon.

My waitress wasn't that attentive to my son and I being GF. The pasta was good. We ordered a salad and mine came out with bread even when I specifically said GF no croutons or bread. I sent it back and they brought a new one out. But by the time a new one was out it was entree time.

I had the Chicken Marsala with Gluten Free Spaghetti. I didn't get sick but I thought the dish was bland. My fiance had the Mac and Cheese with gluten pasta and he also felt his dish was bland.

Pastini is a small family friendly restaurant with friendly staff. The GF spaghetti is delicious wherever it is used. Our waitress Mindy was knowledgeable about GF needs. They have GF Tiramisu. Yum.

After ordering one of their "gluten free" entrees, I was horrible ill. They had no idea how they made the mistake and no plan to make sure it didn't happen again. They didn't even offer to comp my meal.

They always do a wonderful job. I’m celiac and very sensitive to gluten. They have lots of gluten free options, very careful and they label the food as gluten free. I usually get the Bolognese with Gluten Free Ziti.

They have gluten free linguine and ziti, cooked in separate water. You cannot get the meatballs, but they do have other proteins available. No lasagna or baked ziti, either.

My bigger challenge was the cheese, because I’m dairy free but still strongly prefer cheeze for my Italian dishes. They did have a large selection of vegetarian offerings that could be made vegan if you hold the cheese. Our server pointed out some dishes that she said worked well for the dairy free crowd.

I settled on a broccolini ziti dish with olive oil, garlic, and hazelnuts and herbs, and added on some grilled chicken. The ziti was soggy and difficult to scoop up because it was covered in oil. The toppings were tasty. The chicken was good.

If your only challenge is gluten, this will probably be fine. I found the experience somewhere between disappointing and acceptable, and probably won’t return.

I have had one reaction there before but it wasn't severe. Today I had to leave work early due to feeling the effects of gluten. When I received the food it had the gluten free flag on it but when I received the bill, "gluten free" wasn't specified on the bill. I didn't think much of it but later felt sick. I am unsure of what gluten noodles taste like anymore so I am unsure if it was cross contamination or Ingested gluten filled noodles.
