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...

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).

    • Hello.  I was wondering what flavor the potato chips were.  Some flavors have dairy in them, like sour cream and onion, or ranch, or cheese.   Sometimes people with Celiac Disease develop an intolerance, or even an allergy, to dairy which can affect behavior, too. Some chips have flavor enhancers akin to MSG that might trigger a reaction.   Potato chips are processed with sulfites to prevent them from discoloration.  Some Celiacs develop a sensitivity to Sulfites in the diet.   And some Celiacs find it helpful to remove nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers) from their diets. Every one is different and reacts differently their own triggers.   I agree with Kareng.  You need to talk to your son.  I bet he feels embarrassed by his behavior, and is perhaps scared of not being able to control himself.  Your reassurance that he has your support can be invaluable.   You and your son might want to figure out together a plan of action if the situation arises again.  Help him learn to recognize when he's reacting and help him get through it.  Skipping rope to burn off the extra energy, puzzle books to focus the mind, soft lights and music, writing in a journal or coloring, or a clock ticking are things that may help.  But your love and support will be most important. Hope this helps.  Be encouraged.            
    • I think this site is a far better source of info and support than any of the Facebook groups I've seen. Its certainly been a great help to me. I found that too much web surfing on some other sites including Facebook just made things more difficult, there are either sites pushing commercial solutions with little real scientific grounding or there are often well meaning people with particular axes to grind offering dubious advice.  I stopped visiting those sites finally as they just added to the climate of fear and anxiety around diet and health. If your journey is any way like mine, you'll find that things get much better, both in terms of adapting to the diet and also in your general health and well being. The first weeks are hard but as you learn to read labels, know which are your safe products and make sure you are completely gluten free then your body will do the rest.  
    • Looks like this soup does contain gluten: https://www.chilis.com/docs/Chilis-Allergen-Generic.pdf The page that lists gluten free options does not show the enchilada soup as being gluten free (scroll down a few pages).  
    • Okay, you ordered it online.  What does the ingredient label say?  I did not even know they made a canned or packaged soup?  Or did you order online and picked it up at the restaurant?   Maybe there is no gluten at all.  Maybe they only use masa flour (corn) as the soup base.  
    • I ordered it online and it was an accident. The store is now closed and the internet is not offering any solutions. The customer service helpline is useless.
