Juliano's Pizzeria In Derry, Nh - Phenomonal!

Recommended Posts

So I finally got to check this place out today, and let me tell you it is awesome.

I had the cheese lasagna and it was pure heaven, they have chicken parm and chicken pesto as their gluten-free pasta specials this week also, didn't try those, and you can always get penne and marinara. The owner is the gluten-free cook/specialist and she makes everything from scratch, and had these small circle sized pieces of bread with garlic on top that came with the lasagna (I asked for a couple) and the bread was awesome, could never tell it was gluten-free.

I also had a canolli, she usually amkes the shells herself, but she was using ones from a local gluten-free bakery (Anello's in Portsmouth, NH) this week becuase she had been on vacation, and it was still awesome. I asked if I could do a "bake and take" gluten-free pizza, cause I really wanted to try it, but was full and everything from the lasagna, and later tonight I put it in the oven for a late dinner/snack. Let me first say I've tried at least 5-10 gluten-free pizzas now, brand names, or at restaurants, and although I've had some good ones, this one tops them all.

I don't think any dough has come nearly as close as this one as tasting rich and like REAL pizza dough yet. It's her own recipe, flour, that she has put together, and man it is remarkable. I told her I would call her and let her know how the take and bake concept went, she doesn't usually do it, so it was an experiment, so I plan on calling in the morning.

We called ahead of time to see what exactly they had there today for gluten-free, they say to call about the specials, and between my conversation on the phone and in person the owner/staff are very knowledgable and up front about cross contamination and how they do everything. She even said that there is flour with wheat on the premises (cause they do regular pizzas/pastas too) and although they prepare it all gluten-free, wanted to be honest about that always slight possibility of cc, which as we know is present just about everywhere.

I highly reccomend a trip, whether you are north of Boston, or anywhere in the Nashua/Manchester/Seacoast area of NH, it is absoutley worth the 30-45 min trip up 93, 495, etc. whatever way you are coming.

They are now going to be one of my bi weekly/once a month gluten-free trip/treats lol along with Burton's in North Andover :-)

PS: Let me also say, there was a fellow Celiac there who had been there before waiting for a pizza and of course we were sharing our war stories, but she raved about the pizza and the establishment as well. Since I don't live locally, it's not a place I had been to or can go to alot as it is, but she was saying it was great, so even before I had my food I was excited and trusting. So it seems they attract alot of the local Celiacs already.

Price wise, seems very fair. It came to about $24 for my wife to have a chicken parm sub, for me to have the lasagna, two sodas, a canoli and the take and bake pizza. It's a little eat in/delivery place in an outlet, so it's not fancy but very friendly (kid friendly as well) atmosphere so you can't really go wrong.

This is great to hear!! I've been hearing about some great places in Portsmouth, we aren't close, on the western side of the state, but I think we'll take a trip over there. Not sure where you are from but Heavenly Fodder's in Manchester is 100% gluten free.. they do not have an eat in area though, when they first started they were serving hot food to go, not sure if they do that anymore, but they have freezers where there are prepared meals, they have pancakes, cookies, muffins and whoopie pies (my daughter's favorite!) plus they do cakes. I've heard there is another place in North Conway as well. and Giorgio's in Milford has gluten free pasta's now :)

Juliano's has some desserts from Heavenly Fodder, I have heard of it and would like to get some of their take out but Manchster is a bit of a hike. I would love to try Giorgio's in Milford, I'm in Seabrook, so a bit of a hike. Annellos in Portsmouth is a great sandwhich/pizza/bakery PURE gluten free shop, theres Popover on the Square which can do gluten-free bread for sandwhiches, Weeksies up in Dover now has gluten-free pizza (including some speciality pizzas!!) and the place in N. Conway you might be thinkign of is Rafferty's Pub which rules, you can get almost anything under the sun gluten-free. They have alot gluten-free up there, including from what I hear a purely gluten-free '99...which is pretty awesome if true, haven't been there, and there is an Italian Restaurant called Bellinis that has ton of gluten-free dishes.
