I loved Pala! It's dark and cosy - I love that about a restaurant - and the food is amazing with loads of vegan options for those inclined. The service was friendly and attentive without being in the way and although we stayed a long...More

There are plenty of pizza restaurants in NYC, but to find a gluten free pizza that tastes unbelievable is another thing. The pasta dishes were equally great. We started with the delicious lamb chops and artichoke salad. The salad was the weakest part of the...More

They have excellent gluten free pizza options as well as appetizers that I would not necessarily expect to be gluten free. Great place if you want a tasty gluten free pizza in the city.

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment

Voted "Best Pizza" by Daily News readers. Pizza is taken seriously at this Lower East Side pizza restaurant. Chef/Owner Gigio Palazzo creates oblong Roman pies made with your choice of an ORGANIC MULTIGRAIN Crust or GLUTEN FREE crust. Pala is known for fresh, innovative pies such as "Zucca" pumpkin puree, pancetta and smoked scamorza cheese and "Bufala Cruda" oven melted cherry tomatoes, fresh buffalo mozzarella and whole basil leaves. Pizzas are served on long wooden "Pala's" or pizza peels and are excellent for sharing in groups. In addition to pizzas, Palazzo serves up homemade specialties like "arancini" and "fiori di zucca" not to mention an impressive list of salads, pastas and desserts. **NEW GLUTEN FREE and VEGAN menus available. Wine, beer and a full bar top off the experience at Pala.
