Very knowledgeable and helpful! My pasta arrived with a gluten free flag in it. Great food and drinks!
The staff was courteous and accommodating. I had a gf ziti with a yummy pesto sauce and veggies! My food came out with a gluten free flag in it. Delicious. Taking a GF TIRAMISU home for later! So excited to try it.
I went here two days in a row, it had good reviews for celiac and it was close to my work conference. The first day I was so impressed and not sick. The second day I ordered GF again, it came out with GF flags. But I am up sick from gluten, and I usually am not sensitive to CC, so I am wondering if all of my pasta was not gf.
How can no one have posted a photo of gluten free tiramisu! Oh yum! Dinner was also fantastic
This place is exceptional. Most of the dishes can be made gluten free and they come out clearly marked. I ordered the pesto and it was delicious. They also have gluten free tiramisu! Staff is very friendly, would definitely recommend.
Best Italian food I have ever had. Very knowledgeable. I would eat this every time I come to Portland.
Lots of variety, can do almost any pasta dish GF. Marked dish with special flag to denote GF. Unfortunately no GF bread.
I got a plain, GF spaghetti dish with butter and cheese, and while I personally did not enjoy the food, the staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. - My favorite part was the little flag stating "GLUTEN FREE" they had on my food when they brought it out. 💕
I had the basil pesto on gluten free pasta and it was THE BEST gf pasta I've ever had! 2 giant scoops of vanilla gelato were delicious!
excellent food, good prices and friendly knowledge staff. I had pasta with chicken, artichoke, and peppers in a creamy pesto. ..yum! only thing that could have made it better is if they had gf bread.
This place is amazing!!! I mean, absolutely amazing! I have never had such exceptional food, especially considering it is gluten free! You MUST eat here! You won't be sorry!! I would give 20 stars if I could!
I went twice while in town for 5 days. Great pasta and great service.
Wonderful pasta! There's no up charge for gluten free noodles. My daughter and I get sick from the smallest contamination and we were fine after eating here. Knowledgable staff, very friendly, and would definitely come here again. Only thing that would make it better was if there was a replacement for the gluten filled bread.
Always great with mixed-need groups. Normal-sized portions are a plus.
Lots of options, wish portions were larger
The staff is knowledgeable & friendly. They have local & seasonal food. They now have 2 types of GF noodles. This is a win win for GF & non-GF guests in a party.
— Not at all
— No gluten-free information on the menu
It looked and tasted yummy but both my daughter (gluten intolerant) and I (celiac) got extremely sick after eating. A sign that there was significant contamination. Essentially sabotaging the rest of our evening in Bend
The pasta came out with a gluten free flag.
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
I got the gf spaghetti with pork ragu and it was very good
My sister is allergic to dairy and they were very accommodating to her as well.
Each time I’ve let the waitress know that I have celiacs and they take every precaution necessary!

Large portions and great gluten free noodles!
I have eaten here many, many times and I have only had one bad experience. I ended up with a rogue gluten noodle in my order and although I didn’t eat that noodle directly, I got moderately sick from the cross contamination. I called and politely spoke to the manager, Jeremy, and he was very apologetic and comped me a free meal. He said he couldn’t even understand how that would happen considering the procedures they have in place to prevent cross contamination.
Ate here while passing through Bend, due to good reviews. Our 13 year old son has Celiacs and was thrilled to eat good pasta here. All seemed good, server took note and dish came out with GF flag. After keeping our son GF for 5 years with no real problems he was sick for several days after eating here. Really not sure if it was the restaurant or if he happen to come down with some cold or virus coincidentally, but symptoms seemed to all be same as being glutenated - lack of energy, stomach cramps/pains, then diarrhea. Took him several days to get back to normal. Hope it wasn’t the restaurant but next time will be using our Nima.
Staff was super knowledgeable about celiac and cross contamination. Service was great and so was the food. They have a separate kitchen area where all gf food is prepared. I had the chicken piccata :)
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.
I had a great meal, and loved how much my server and the rest of the staff knew about gluten free. I had to make sure it’s known, though - the gluten free tiramisu is no more!! I’m so sad!!!! I was so excited to have tiramisu again, and was so disappointed when the server told me that it is no more.
The food was AMAZING, and the pasta is just as delicious as promised. Most things can be made GF. I had linguine piccata, which had chicken, and I did not get sick. They have two types of pasta and serve the gluten free dishes with little flags so everyone knows to be careful. The one problem is that there are no marks on the menu showing what they can do without gluten, and no gluten free menu, so deciding is a bit of a pain. But the actual service and food was excellent!
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!
My favorite place to get GF pasta, the vegan and gluten free options are amazing including the salads! They even have a gluten free tiramisu (not vegan contains dairy) but I tried it anyways and its amazing. Never gotten sick from here its definately on my safe list!
Excellent food. They can do a gluten free pasta but cross contamination could be an issue with pasta. I chose a wonderful salad and grilled veggies. It was delicious. They cooked everything in separate pans to ensure it was safe.
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.
Favorite stop for dinner with family. Nice formal setting for special dinner, but still casual. GF options are very good including potato vodkas, and they do a good job on gf pasta. And to tie it off, gf tiramisu. yum.
Great food and awesome service! I have been celiac for five years and I have never had gluten free pasta this good, plus the gluten free tiramisu was amazing! One top of that the waitress was extremely helpful, quick, and attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant!
Excellent dinner. The service was awesome and the hostess, server and kitchen staff were all very knowledgeable about carefully preparing GF meals. On a bonus...they have GF Tiramsu (it was delicious).
Excellent Italian food. Gluten free pasta was great. It would be nice if a small salad was included. Marinara sauce was delicious with sliced sausage. Good wine selection too. Gluten free tarimisu a must.
