  • "My husband did a search for Gluten Free dining b/c I have celiac disease. He came across Bistango, which we'd never heard of, but the reviews were positive. We were NOT disappointed! We ate outside despite the heat. The unexpected fun was the cheers coming from the bar across the street as goals were scored in the World Cup soccer game. It was an absolutely FANTASTIC meal with great service. I never get to have bread w/ my meal but they provided WARM GF bread w/ garlic olive oil for dipping. Just about everything on the menu is GF according to the waiter. When we ordered a bottle of the featured wine, the waiter offered to bring us a sample to taste. Had eggplant ravioli. DELICIOUS! Even had GF desserts! We'll be back for sure!"

  • "Great option for people with dietary restrictions! Gluten-free and some dairy free options, and even if they didn't have it on the menu I'm sure they would accommodate you! I am definitely coming back again - new favorite place to eat!"

  • "Had dinner here with my mom and 11 year old daughter. The food was excellent. All of us really enjoyed our dinner and dessert as well. We did have a reservations and would have preferred to sit outside but the tables were full. Unfortunatley, the noise level was so bad that we actually took our dessert to go. The three of us had to yell at each other just to be heard. It was very disappointing especailly since the food and service was so good. Sitting outside would have been much better. Not sure why the acoustics were so bad. The tables are not uncomfortably close. It was just loud."

  • "Finally an Italian restaurant that accommodates the gluten free crowd. Everything from raviolis to lasagna to a warm slice of gluten free bread as an appetizer. The burrata cheese was excellent, the short ribs melted on your tongue. Great food and some reasonably priced wines (for NYC) made for a very pleasant dining experience. I will return often."

  • "My wife is not Gluten Free, but I am. We both had wonderful Italian meals. It was nice that I could pick about anything off the menu for a GF version rather than just a couple choices."

  • "The waiter paid approximately no attention to us. It took OVER AN HOUR to order our food. We had to ask the hostess to find out waiter. The food was fine, but I'll probably never go back"

  • "This hidden gem of an italian restaurant feels off the beaten track, but doesn't compromise on quality. I came for the incredible black pasta, so I was a bit disappointed on my recent visit, but my fish special was delicious. The rigatoni is a winner, too. Desserts are excellent, if you save room, and the restaurant feels cozy and welcoming. A keeper."

  • "The gluten free pasta we had was chewy and rubbery. No thanks. All else was of good quality. Frankly we expected more given the reviews this place received."

  • "I have been looking for a certified Gluten Free Italian restaurant for a long time…..& this one is a find. The food is excellent & absolutely Gluten Free with a ton of choices for Celiacs like me. It is a pleasure to dine in a place where you have choices as a Celiac & have Great Italian food as well!"

  • "I love the gluten free food and the service is first rate. It's very loud, so not intimate, but a great place to meet friends. The red velvet cake was so good, in fact, that I got scared halfway through that it wasn't gluten free. I had made sure when I ordered, and it was, but it was just. so. good. I could hardly believe it."

  • "I have celiac disease and wanted to find a restaurant that would suit both ME and my "gluten-loving" family in Kips Bay/Murray Hill. My search is over! Bistango was absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend it."

  • "Bistango is so sensitive to all kinds of food allergies and limitations. In addition to gluten, I cannot eat corn, and though it was in most of the pasta dishes and their fabulous (according to my companion) bread, I had a wonderful meal. I had a dish with rice pasta and a great salad, my friend ate a non-GF pizza but also loved the GF bread. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and the place was very quiet, which was so nice not to have to shout. I look forward to returning. "

  • "visited this restaurant on our recent trip to New York mainly because my daughter is coeliac. Everything about this place is great. Friendly welcome, lovely food ,superb ambiance, absolutely buzzing, which we love coming from London. Next time we are in New York this place is number one to come and eat. GREAT. 5/28/14"

  • "I was looking for a gluten free menu and after searching I kept seeing Bistango. They said make their own gluten free pasta and bread. So after seeing an off broadway play my daughter and I went from 50th and 8th to Bistango. We were greeted and waiter asked what our food allergies were. They brought separate GF bread for her and regular for me. I ate GF pasta which was great. Couldn't tell difference. For dessert I had planned on walking to an all GF bakery so we didn't eat dessert at restaurant. But they did offer a flourless chocolate cake. I would definitely recommend Bistango. "

  • "Wine was very good, food was good but nothing special. For the price and amount of food you get, it's a pretty good deal in NYC "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "There is a nice outdoor seating area, and when we went for lunch on a Monday, we had no problem getting a table right away. The prices are moderate and the service was good. The food was pretty much so so, but I would go back again if I wanted to dine outside somewhere in Kips Bay. "

  • "The service was great and friendly. I ordered spaghetti and meatballs and sausage. I was so disappointed because the meatballs were small, died out and like rocks! Did not want to make waves for my table so I remained silent., I would not recommend the restaurant because of this."

  • "Used a gluten free app to find restaurants near our hotel while on a trip to NYC....it was so good we returned for a second night. Good wine, wonderful food for gluten-free eaters and "regular" customers, beautiful presentation and the service was outstanding. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!"

  • "If you have a gluten intolerance then this is the restaurant for you. From pasta to pizzettes the gluten-free choices are delicious and expertly prepared. Warm fresh gluten-free (french) bread with olive oil is served when you are seated. There are delicious breads and entrees for those who do not have a gluten issue -- so everyone can be accommodated here. The service is attentive and owners/managers stop by every table to see if patrons are happy with their entrees. The only drawback is that the restaurant is small and thus it can be a little noisy. But after the first bite, the din fades away. "

  • "Bistango is always a go to for me and my friends when we don't want to venture out of the neighborhood. Love the menu options from the pastas to salads to main courses - all great! Love the artichokes too."

  • "My wife & I sought out gluten free friendly restaurants whilst in NYC and Bistango is a revelation! Pretty much faultless service and meal; the short rib in port reduction starter was rich and heavenly, cooked to perfection as was the gluten free butternut squash tortellini with sage and brown butter sauce - one of the best pasta dishes I've ever had, GF or not GF. It was so good we had to have a 3rd course - which again hit the spot brilliantly. Absolutely go check it out.....!"

  • "I love going to Bistango since they offer so many gluten-free options. I don't feel so restricted when I eat here and everything that I have tried so far, has been incredible. I've never had a disappointing meal here and I've eaten here at least four times since I've moved into the neighborhood in February. "

  • "Friendly service for locals and visitors alike. Great gluten free options and plenty of non-gluten free choices too. We had three different breads at our table (regular wheat, gluten free and gluten free/dairy free) and everyone was happy. Delicious food served with careful attention to food allergies and intolerances. "

  • "Brought my gluten-free, dairy-free, non-gmo, non-casein eating friend here. She was very happy. I couldn't taste the difference between many of her non-gluten items and the regular versions. A good experience, friendly service. Very bar/bistro like place - loud and crowded. "
