Gluten-free Dining in Newport, RI

The Brick Alley Pub in Newport, RI

If you have ever traveled to Newport, RI then you know there are plenty of great restaurants to choose from. But if you have celiac disease or a gluten-intolerance then you know that dining out in an unfamiliar city is very difficult. Luckily, Newport has many gluten-free friendly restaurants that can easily be found if you know about them. I have comprised a list of celiac friendly restaurants in this scenic, colonial city. These restaurants have responded to a survey that was sent to over 100 restaurants and bakeries in Newport. All of the places listed have also stated that they are familiar with the necessary precautions that come with preparing gluten-free food such as avoiding cross-contamination. I have attempted to verify the accuracy of the statements provided by the restaurants to the best of my ability. If you are a tourist or local, I hope this list can help in keeping your gluten-free lifestyle.

Thanks for this! There are some restaurants on here that I did not know are gluten free friendly.

To add to your list: Salvation Cafe, Perro Salado, The Fifth Element, and Pour Judgement all have been very accommodating and aware of the needs of a gluten free diet. These restaurants are some of my favorites and my go-tos.

Thanks for the info!!

Diego's now has a special gluten-free menu that is quite extensive. I had the gluten-free fish tacos, and they were delicious - and didn't make me sick so i know they really were gluten-free.

Just got back from Newport, Diego's is wonderful they are very knowledgeable and know all ingredients in there food. Eva Ruth's makes the best fresh bakery item I've ever had (try the biscotti, pumpkin muffins and cookies).
Also accommodating restaurants to try Red Parrot and Benjamin's. Thanks for the article it was a huge help.

I live in Newport so these are recommendations from my experience. My 2 favorite restaurants who have dedicated GF menus & in my experience are careful with Celiacs: 1) Diego's ( - they have a separate frialator for GF even though they change the regular one every day. (Diego's restaurant opened Diego's Bodega ( for take-out and though I've never had a reaction I feel they are less careful/knowledgeable than the main restaurant) 2) The Fifth Element ( - have the BEST GF pizza and they are even careful about blue-cheese last time I went! Others with GF menu's or accommodate GF (in no particular order) The Mooring, 22 Bowen's, the Smokehouse, and probably all of the other Newport Restaurant Group restaurants Salvation Cafe (amazing GF french toast & pad thai!) Pour Judgement fancy places like Castle Hill, Bouchard's, The White Horse Tavern, Ocean Cliff, Spiced Pear Raw Power Juice ( - falafel, wraps, salads & smoothies A-Market - grocery store with prepared foods & hot soups. List all ingredients and Gluten-free is marked bold. Keenwah - breakfast & lunch. affiliated with A-Market (311 Broadway, Newport, RI. does not have website, visit on Facebook) Lucia's Italian Restaurant - GF pasta Sardellas - GF pasta Tavern on Broadway Caleb & Broad Gas Lamp Grille (GF menu, but bar-food level) Brix - part of Newport Vineyards in Middletown ( These places have permanently closed (so sad because they were all fantastic!!): Eva Ruth's Yesterday's and the Place Tallulah on Thames - but check out the freshest authentic GF tacos at Tallulah Tacos at the Shack in Jamestown

I am more stressed about what sales will be out on cyber Monday and black Friday then the actual thanksgiving holidays lol. Cooking is just cooking, I do it daily, just doing more and some special dishes. NOW once a year sales on products I use daily like supplements, spices, foods, flours, etc..... Starbuck's also had wrap sandwiches in London and this was the company they used. Warburton's bread and wraps put everything in the US to shame. The wraps are moist, delicious and do not SPLIT!

Why wouldn't it be gluten-free? whiskey is gluten-free. Wine is gluten-free.

Have you been tested for a stomach ulcer? That's what the pain sounds like to me. You can also get pain in your stomach from too much gas. Another possibility is GERD.

Well, you can always trial the gluten-free diet, but do it for at least six months. Act exactly as if you had celiac disease. Worry about cross contamination and learn to read labels. My own hubby did this per the very poor advice from two medical doctors 16 years ago (and we had good in...
