Went by metro from Porto to to this restaurant that had really great reviews from gluten intolerant people. "Best gluten free pizza ever". I guess that they have eaten gluten free there whole life and have nothing to compare with or something. I think the gluten free pizza I had in Santiago de Compostela a couple of days ago was...

Dear Beast Ankar, you say our pizza was undercoocked, therefore the one you published cannot be ours, as this presents some scorched signs at the edge, meaning that it was well cooked... the weight of our g.f. pizza is 250 grams, are hand opened and not industrially machine opened as other restaurants may find on the market frozen. It demonstrates... More

Unassuming, unpretentious, but really attractive and comfortable restaurant. You won't believe that simple straightforward Italian food can test this good. I had one of the Fungi pasta specials and though I had died and gone to heaven. Great service too and while there are less expensive places around none is as good value. If you are in this area you... More

As well as regular options. The service was fantastic. The owner, who served us, was friendly and we had a lovely chat. He was passionate about providing top... More

Authentic Italian pizza in Portugal. I had the GF crust and it was amazing! A bit outside of Porto Center; but easy to get to by public transportation and the food is worth the trip! Relaxed atmosphere and great GF selection of pizza and pasta on the menu!

We had a lovely meal of Milanese and pasta and pizza. Our son is coeliac and he had what he described as the best gluten free pizza he had ever had. Evertthing is made from scratch and they are very aware of how to avoid contamination of gluten free food with special cradles to hold the gluten free pizzas in... More

Exactly as the title says. Authentic tastes of Italy made by Chef Sergio who is from Umbria. The best part is that they have gluten free pasta and pizza!

We came here because the glutenfree pizza is famous with Celiaks, and it did not disappoint: it was amazing! Best fresh glutenfree pizza I ever had. Friendly staff and chef. Worth the trip from down-town Porto.

Authentic Italian restaurant, owned by chef Sergio Crivelli, winner of the Gluten free Pizza World Championships in 2012. In 2013 he was awarded the ''OSPITALITÁ ITALIANA'' (comparable to one Star in the Michelin Guide). We are renowned for: Homemade pasta, real Italian thin-crust Pizza, baked in a wood fired oven, risotti, gnocchi, delicate specialties as a main course such as Scaloppine, Saltimbocca, Involtini and finally for homemade typical Italian desserts like Tiramisu, Panna Cotta and Crostata. To finalise a great meal, we have the world famous Napolitan Caffé Izzo, accompanied by a limoncello, made by chef Sergio Crivelli. We are the only restaurant in Portugal specialised in Gluten free Pasta, Pizza and Lasagne. During the summer months you can eat outside.
