NYC’s Best Gluten Free Italian Restaurants

Caity Begg

The amazing restaurants are one of my favorite parts of living in New York City. From Mexican to Italian to American and everything in between, the city always offers incredible spots to dine with friends, go on dates, and so much more.

I am gluten intolerant (and lactose intolerant) and often find it quite difficult to find really good Italian food. Over the course of my time living in New York City, I’ve established the following five restaurants as my favorite spots for gluten-free Italian Food. I’ve linked to the website for each, as well as described what the restaurant is best for (date night, delivery, etc.), my go-to order, and the location.
