“Best gluten free pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The menu offers quite a few gluten free options (including pizza, pasta & bread) but being in New York I decided to try the Quattro Formaggi pizza. Hands down the best gluten free pizza I have ever had! Even my (not gluten free) boyfriend couldn't believe how good it was. The place is small but has a nice atmosphere. The wait staff is friendly & knowledgeable. I would highly recommend eating here especially if you are on a gluten free diet.

“Average food, good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

Decor and service were good. Food was average. My son and I had the meatball pizza. Light on meatballs, cheese and any other topping other than tomato sauce. Y wife had the ravioli. She said it was okay. In summary, great staff, but don't go hungry.

“What a lucky find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

On our first night in NYC, staying on Lexington, we were searching around for a place to eat. We saw this place on Tripadvisor and, having a wheat intolerance, I was VERY keen to try it.

It has a great vibe, really friendly service. They are right off the bat if anyone has any allergies, and if you say yes they will prepare any of the dishes on their menu as a gluten free option. I had pizza for the first time in ages! THe wine choice was good, appetizers delicious, and main courses incredible. The Creme Brulee was also amazing. Get there early though, as it fills up very, very quickly. I'm not certain if they offer reservations, but if they do it's probably worth booking.

“What a discovery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We discovered this neighborhood gem last night. Their Monday menu is a compilation of favorites. The wine list is more than adequate to complement the great selection of dishes. Service was prompt and non-rushed. We'll be back for Brunch with friends this weekend.

“Amazing Gluten free restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

This is the restaurant to go to if you require a gluten free menu. The staff are friendly, their knowledge of gluten free food is unbelievably reassuring.

The prices are relative to any other normal restaurant in new york and the menu is extensive. I found it hard to order anything other than the quattro formaggi pizette but there is plenty to choose from.

The atmosphere is ambient and the cool jazz music makes for a haven in a bustling city. Perfect atmosphere for couples, friends and the locals love it to so be sure to call and book to avoid disappointment.
