Dundas St is a long East-West route beginning in the Beach and running west to the city's western edge (and beyond). Can you give a cross street or approximate street number, with east or west?

My gluten-free wife and I are planning a trip to Toronto in the summer, and I found this website to be very helpful for restaurants...

Have a great trip!

Here is a link to some information from the Toronto chapter of the Canadian Celiac Association.

The Keg is a chain of steakhouses which is very accommodating. Click for the location on Church St.

Swiss Chalet has several options, and many locations around the city. The closest would be 362 Yonge Street, just north of Dundas.

Il Fornello offers gluten-free food at all locations. The closest would be the one at 491 Church St. We love their pizza.

You are within walking distance of so many places that you should have plenty of options.

Unfortunately, Outback Steakhouse has only one location in the city and it is way out by the airport.

I would not recommend Il Fornello's pizza. It is terrible and not worth the money. Kinninnick pizza crusts are way better, practically any other crust is, Il Fornello's was the worst I have ever eaten.
I think many people will be disappointed in forking out 15-20 bucks per individual pizza and that the crust is of such a poor quality. One way I can prove this is: My family has served our pizza to non celiac friends and they wouldnt know the difference, after we complained to the manager at Il Fornello he admitted he tried the pizza and would never eat it again. Restaurants should not serve what they are not willing to eat themselves.

Il Fornello is a full service licensed restaurant. Comparing their food and service to other options, I do agree that it is a rather expensive experience. Being able to go to a restaurant where the service is excellent and I don't have to worry whether they understand the gluten-free diet is a blessing to me. Obviously, there is a subjective element involving personal taste. I enjoy both the food and the atmosphere at the Bayview Village location. I have been to two of the others, and was not disappointed with the food at either one.

The gluten-free crusts used at Il Fornello are made by Quejos (click).
