The server was immediately attentive to my gluten free diet. Brought me fab bread for dipping and reviewed their most popular dishes.

Recently got diagnosed with Celiac disease (means I can't go anywhere near anything with gluten, even cross contamination from kitchens/other food etc). So it has been extremely difficult for me to eat out and not get sick. Heard that this restaurant was the best gluten free place in the city and wow did they live up to that title. This... More

Had dinner with my wife there the other night. It was a cozy place with a nice hum in the air but not so loud that you couldn't have a conversation. We had the calamari as an app. It was fresh and not battered. Pretty good. I had the cod special and vegetables and my wife had the steak. Both... More

A delightful Italian restaurant. I am not a big fan of kale but the kale salad was excellent. Our meals were excellent and the service was friendly and professional. Anthony welcomes his guests and makes you feel like you're part of the family. This clearly is a must when you are in New York.

I loved this place and if I were a local I would be here once a week. Obvious attention to detail and good food. Great service and they take special requests. Ask them for recommendations and they won't steer you wrong. Loved my pasta with short rib meat. Great atmosphere- intimate and you can carry on conversations with your table... More

Bistango is on our go-to list of restaurants whenever we visit NYC. Reservations strongly advised. It's a friendly, neighborhood place with white linens and great food. Can be noisy when busy. Our most recent visit was a Monday night at 6:30 pm, so things were somewhat quiet. We enjoyed two specials that evening, veal chops and a seafood stew. Both... More

We had an amazing dinner here! It starts off by them bringing freshly made hummus with the fresh bread (we had gluten free bread and it was soft and tasty) Our waiter was super knowledgable and tentative. We had the Eggplant parmesan and I had a halibut special which was incredible. Everything on the menu can be prepared gluten free... More

We went there for Sunday brunch and loved everything we ordered - mimosa, steak and eggs, mushroom with truffle oil flatbread, and pesto ravioli. Friendly wait staff and nice decor. Definitely will go back!

Really good modern Italian food - we had a three course meal each with different choices, and it was all excellent. Great, fresh flavours and a real attention to detail. There is an emphasis on gluten-free options (we didn't try any of these). I personally do not like a non-baked cheesecake, but the Bistango cheesecake is great!

Stumbled upon Bistango whilst out for an evening stroll, I was really excited to see it was an award winning GF restaurant as I generally struggle when eating out and hadn't been in an Italian restaurant since I was diagnosed as a coeliac almost 30 years ago! The first question the waiter asked was if either of us had any... More
