This was this best meal we had on our five day visit to NYC. It is a very small restaurant, so I would highly recommend reservations. Since it is a small local restaurant, seating is tight and the atmosphere is lively and a little noisy, but just enough to make it fun. The wine we ordered was delicious and our... More

I came with my boyfriend for brunch with a Groupon. Our waiter was great very friendly. The food was very good and they have a lot of options. Not every brunch does. Will definitely be back

This is a great place for traditional italian food, where the staff are so friendly. It really is a joy to visit this restaurant. As a strict vegetarian I have only eaten the pasta dishes but they are consistently fresh tasting and remind me of the food that I have enjoyed on italian vacations.

This restaurant is absolutely AMAZING. If you're looking for a great Italian food, with awesome gluten free options, this is the place. I got the mushroom ravioli and it was unbelievable. This is my favorite restaurant in Manhattan by far.

I had a very nice caesar salad, very well done with just the right amount of dressing, croutons and hearts of romaine. well done. Main dish not so much. I ordered chicken parmigiana . Chicken breast was not pounded , would have so... More

I visited Bistango Saturday night with friends. Before we even sat down, the experience was incredible. The host was extremely polite and catered to my needs as soon as I told him I have celiac disease. Our food was perfect. The gluten free pizzette with mushrooms was delightful and tasty. My friends loved their martinis. I amean utterly obsessed with... More

Called in on the off chance during packed Sunday evening. Sat up at the bar and chose from a comprehensive gluten free menu. Amazing spinach and ricotta tortellini. Wine on point too. Friendly and quick service. Great experience.

Our waiter started by asking if there were any dietary restrictions. When I alerted him to my Celiac/GF needs, I was told "you can order anything." I was then provided with delicious toasted Italian bread + oil/fresh garlic for dipping. Had I died and gone to heaven?? Somebody pinch me! My gluten eating husband enjoyed this restaurant as much as... More

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
