Hi, I LOVE Bistango. I came back here after two years - being from Australia it is not a restaurant I am able to get to every week. Very disappointing that the people from Florida could not see the benefits of this restaurant. OUTSTANDING customer service - staff are very attentive and the first question asked when seated is, are... More

We ate there on a Tuesday night for a birthday with a large party. Be advised, they require a credit card to hold reservations for large groups. We ended up moving the reservation by 1/2 hour and adding two people. They were extremely accommodating. This is on the corner of 3rd and 29th. Not a huge place, but they did... More

The entire menu is gluten free. I had ravioli for the first time since I can't remember when! So delicious! My friend is not gluten intolerant, and, yet, could not tell the difference! Even had gf bread, roasted, and wonderful olive oil for dipping. The only not gf item is regular bread as well as gf. I hope to return!

My husband, son and I met with friends at the restaurant. The restaurant is very small and lighting is very low. The food was okay and the atmosphere was nice. Price is on the high side. Staff is attentive. Not sure if I would go back with all the restaurants in the city to choose from.

I want to start by saying I wanted to give 5 stars, but the portion size prevented me. I was with my big Italian family who are used to "family" sized dishes. I realize this is a nice Manhattan restaurant and not my grandmother's dinner table, but my portion seemed more like an appetizer. That being said, the gnocchi I... More

Friendly staff and good food. They felt attentive and serious about our allergies. Would recommend for gluten allergics any day.

Delicious gluten free ravioli and a very tasty salad. Attentive service. A great treat for gluten free and "regular" eaters!

I visited the original restaurant location on the 4th of July and I must say it was the best experience I had in NYC! Finding good gluten-free pasta is difficult, but finding STUFFED gluten-free pasta is next to impossible! I had the cheese tortelloni with spinach, peas, and artichokes, and it was AMAZING. They also served me fresh, hot bread... More

Wow, great Italian food that just happens to be Gluten free. The non gluten free food also received high reviews from my sisters family(local new yorkers). The price was very good for New york. The staff was friendly and ask the correct question about my gluten free requirements. The place is small so I recommend getting a reservation. The second... More

Bistango was a real treat for me on my recent trip to NYC. Not only do they have gluten free pasta, they have gluten free ravioli. The meal was delicious. Dessert was amazing too and the service was first rate : they even threw in a free glass of porto with my meal!
