Bistango In Nyc

Recommended Posts

So a few of my friends were planning our annual holiday outing together, where we meet in the NYC area and share a meal, drinks, laughter and some gifts. Having just started the gluten free life, i had some concerns about eating out, as some of the places they were suggesting seemed a bit difficult. so i explained the situation to all of them and did a gluten free restaurant search. i found bistango in nyc. reviews were great for all meals including gluten free stuff......

soooo.... it was a great dining experience. i was very uneasy eating out for the first time since going gluten free, but they brought me out a warm, crusty piece of gluten-free italian bread and my own oil for dipping. i had the mahi mahi special for dinner with a pomodoro sauce, sliced olives and capers... and a side of gluten-free pasta tossed with olive oil and garlic. all in all it was a great meal, and the best part for me was that it didn't inconvenience my friends in any way. everyone raved about the food! they were very accommodating and i felt very safe eating there!

i just wanted to share the good news. i left with a huge smile on my face :)

My husband and I went to Bistango this summer. I am gluten free, he is not but we both ordered from the gluten-free selections so that we could share and we both thought everything was excellent.

Agreed, as far as New York is concerned this restaurant is very reasonably priced. That was something we were looking for with this group (aside from gluten free for me). It is definitely a bit cheaper than most Italian restaurants in the city. I highly recommend, and ENJOY!! I'm dying to try Risotteria also, which is supposed to be amazing. Might be somewhere else you'd like to try when you're in NYC.

Good luck and safe travels!

I lived around the corner from Bistango for about 11 years, and was delighted when they started offering Gluten Free. It was one of my favorite local spots before I discovered I was a Celiac.

The restaurant itself is inexpensive by New York City standards, but the Gluten Free Pasta dishes are maybe $3-4 higher, if I recall correctly.

But being able to dine out with non-Celiacs in a real restaurant, a good restaurant, in New York City, was truly priceless.

I love this restaurant. My parents live a block away from it. I loved it before I was gluten free and that they now cater to celiacs is just amazing. Everyone who works there is fantastic. They also have great deserts including this new bar with chocolate and cashews that is amazing. I highly reccommend it

They do have at least one gluten free pizza at Bistango..I believe it's the Margarita pizza..but they may have more than that. If you want a really great PIZZA place in NYC (gluten free) then you must try Mozzarelli's...they have amazing gluten free pizza! It's near 23rd st. between Park and Madison..They have just as many gluten free pizza options as they do regular pizza options (about 8-10 of each)..which makes it nice, b/c your non celiac friends/family can accompany you, and everyone enjoys! They also have a few gluten free dessert options as well..I had a wonderful tiramisu there :)

Hey there ! hope all is well for you.  I’ve been struggling with all sorts of tenidinitis and vertigo issues so I haven’t been on the computer much, but I would love any advice if possible. I have been on a very strict gluten free diet for 6 or 7 months. Still have low iron and just got results back. Would love your opinion. I prepare all food myself except once where I was likely glutened. I am seeing haematologist next week, but I was wondering what you think. Parasites have been eliminat
