The only problem with this restaurant chain is that all three branches are on the East side of Manhattan. Otherwise, it is simply one of the best gluten free restaurants (including pasta, pizza, and deserts) in NYC. It doesn’t get too loud or overly crowded, so you can enjoy a romantic evening for two or a gathering of friends, along... More

Came across this restaurant since it offered various gluten free options and even had hand stuffed pasta (which is uncommon as a GF option). Once we were seated at our table we learned that EVERYTHING on the menu can be prepared gluten free and that was exciting news! We started off with the fried calamari (which I have never seen...

This is the second review we are writing on Bistango because it keeps getting better. It's a small Italian restaurant on the corner of 29th and Third that caters to people with food allergies, but we come here just because it's great food served by a really nice group of people. The owner, Anthony, always makes you feel at home.... More

Great location to host a large group for a Sunday brunch. Many choices for those with food preferences (gluten free, vegetarian, and eat everything). The bacon is especially yummy. Best part of the brunch is that the staff let us enjoy each other and did not hurry us along.

Bistango is a unique, pleasant discovery. Regardless of your dietary requirements you should be happy here. Gluten free, vegan or no restrictions, the food is amazing. We actually ordered something from all 3 categories and were pleased with them all. But especially the calamari--beautifully seasoned, tender, perfect. If you are looking for a reserved place to enjoy a quiet evening... More

This place was close to our hotel and the food was great! Very understanding about my gf needs. My husband has a non gf Bistango burger and really liked it. The servers were attentive and friend Y. We will go back!

This is my sister's favorite place. They no longer give her and her husband menus, because they know what they are going to order. The food is always fresh and inventive, without being overly trendy. They offer a number of gluten-free options. Prices are very reasonable and the staff is very welcoming.

So disappointed. I heard such good things about this place especially how exquisite the roasted squash ravioli dish was. So of coarse I ordered it. But before I talk about my dish I need to say something about my experience from the time I entered to the time I exited. First, since my friends were already seated I didn't need... More

We were seated at the bread bar to wait for a table. We liked it so much we opted to eat at the bar and watch the chef make the flatbreads. I shared the Agnello flatbread (braised lamb, feta, lemon, serrano, chiles) we give it a 7.5 out of 10. We really liked it. Our other friend had the Fettuccine... More
