Ciao and Welcome!!

I am from Australia and we are thinking of going to Italy next year. Do you think it is easy to find gluten free food in Italy. Do restaurants understand what gluten free is? We have found a hotel in Cinque Terre that provides gluten free meals to its guests. Are certain regions of Italy better than others for finding gluten free food. I have heard that the north is more aware than the south. Where in Italy do you live? My mother was born in Gorizia and my father is from Lipari.

If you have to have celiac disease and be anywhere in the world, I'd say that Italy is the best place. celiac disease is becoming more and more diagnosed in Italy (common in the gene pool?) and the government actually gives food subsidies to biopsy diagnosed celiacs.

You can buy food in pharmacies (if the one you go in hasn't any ask them where the closest one is) and large grocery stores are now putting in a "gluten-free" section and the EU packaging laws require full discloser of the top 7/8 allergens.

Restaurants are also well informed. But as you would do at home, make sure you tell them!

Here is a link to the gluten-free restaurants in Liguria. I was in the Cinque Terre last year and where there was a pasta dish with seafood, I was able to have mine with rice instead. In the high season, I did book ahead and let them know at booking that I needed gluten-free.

Hope you have a great trip!

I am currently living in Italy (near Sacile, close to Aviano Air base). My son has a wheat allergy (IgG test, never did any sort of celiac testing, he's also reactive to dairy, soy, egg, malt, barley, and spelt) and I am in the process of testing myself. I know that the Coop grocery stores in the area often have a gluten free section, and the Aviano Inn restaurant has gluten free pizza (have to tell them a day ahead I think that you need gluten free~~senza glutina), beer, and gelato. I've also been told that one of the farmacias (pharmacies) in Pordenone has a good selection of gluten free items. I just haven't been there yet, we've only been here since the beginning of January. We haven't traveled yet outside of our immediate area and Venice, but I plan on keeping track of places my ds can eat. I will do my best to post back here with anything else I find.

    Hi, Thanks for your answer! Unfortunately I have to follow the MAOI diet for as long as I'm taking the MAOI, so essentially nobody's going to be inviting me round to dinner from now on… This is a bit of a shock. I don't really have any clear-cut symptoms that I would've considered worth going to the GP about. I mean I'm always tired and I have a bit of IBS and so on but generally I put that down to the other things wrong with me and the medication I have to take for them (mostly the bi
    Thanks Posterboy, that was interesting information.  I believe that I had read something elsewhere about tetracycline, at least, being used instead of, or along with, Dapsone for severe or refractory cases of DH. Unfortunately, even if I had medical insurance (which I do not), and had a regular doctor who was even willing to recognize and accept my condition for what it is, I don't know what kind of luck I would have in persuading that hypothetical doctor to give me a particular and non-sta
