Diner Reviews
  • "That's gluten-free. My wife hasn't had pasta in years and since I wanted to have Italian while visiting NYC I looked for a GF place. Everything was spectacular and the GF pasta and bread were perfectly prepared and not at all "off". I had the orzo with seafood and mascarpone which was piping hot and delicious. We all had the Bistango salad to start with apples and parm - it was very good, even my 12 year old loved it. My wife had the spinach ravioli - again excellent. Desserts were good too. We brifely talked about traveling to NYC just to have dinner there again. This is my first open table review after having used the site for the last 4 years. It's that good."

  • "LOVE this restaurant but even later in the day on weekdays, it gets pretty loud. Booths are quieter, but the bigger tables and noise level sometimes makes it hard to hear the person across from you. GF everything is to die for!"

  • "Bistango is moderately decorated with romantic lighting and red colored walls. The staff is very knowledgeable about Celiac Disease and gluten free options. They were very fast and accommodating. The whole experience made our 1 year anniversary very memorable. The Fusilli and Ricotta/Spinach gluten free ravioli, the gluten free calamari, gluten free bread, gluten free cheesecake and apple crostata were AMAZING! My husband and I cannot wait to go back again."

  • "My daughter and I found Bistango last summer when visiting NY. We were looking for a restaurant with a gluten free menu but got so much more than we bargained for! At Bistango we were able to indulge in filled pasta dishes such as ravioli and tortellini; things we hadn't had since she was diagnosed with celiac disease four years ago. The pizza was excellent, too. The dessert choices were incredible! We had a difficult time narrowing it down to two! I enjoyed our meal so much I brought my husband back the very next evening! Just last week my husband and I made a quick overnight to the city and the first thing I did was make reservations for dinner at Bistango. And it certainly didn't disappoint! Love this place!"

  • "I went here recently for dinner with a friend, and could not have left any happier. I had the GF calamari which, I could barely stand to share with my friend it was so good. She had the grilled artichokes which I sampled and enjoyed. We both had the tortellini with butternut squash, and have been talking about it ever since. To quote a recent conversation: I have been thinking about it non stop, as though it were a handsome crush who winked at me. Everything about it was perfection: the texture of the squash, the light touch of cream sauce, the al dente bite of tortellini, I am enchanted. Nothing will ever compare to that dish. The chef must retire, so that he may never recreate it for anyone else. You will not be disappointed."

  • "Bistango is always a great place for those looking for GF meals. It allows the GF diner to have all of the delicious Italian dishes (pizza and pasta) that they crave so often but cannot typically enjoy!"

  • "Been going to this place for years! I need gluten-free food and they have amazing pasta and desert. I told the owner that my fiance and I are engaged and he gave us a bottle of wine! He is an amazing man and really knows how to run a business; he is genuine and kind. Great food and great service-I wish all NYC restaurants were like this place."

  • "I recently went with my wife and two other couples to celebrate her birthday, as we had heard good things about Bistango. The staff was flexible about a last minute table change, for which we were especially grateful. But more importantly, the food was amazing -- from the burrata and scallop appetizers to all of the pastas and the desserts. Everyone in our party is looking forward to the Upper East Side location opening in the near future, so that we can try that one."

  • "I came to this restaurant because of the many gluten free options. The main course was okay, but the desserts make it worth coming back for. For fellow celiacs, its recommended to try this restaurant. I will probably be trying it again."

  • "Came here with coworkers for lunch on a Friday. Had to do an early lunch, so glad that they opened at 11:30. Food was delicious, although their portions are a bit small. However, this wasn't my first meal at Bistango and you can have a complete meal by ordering an appetizer with your entree."

  • "One of the first restaurants to begin the service with asking if there were any special food needs. Two of the four of us eat gluten free and the selections were wonderful. I had the gluten free pizzette with my choice of cheese. There is even a side of gluten free bread that was delicious. My son had a gluten free pasta dish, also delicious. My husband and daughter had the regular pizzette and pasta and chicken dish...also wonderful. The service was the best...friendly and accommodating. There was a warm atmosphere."

  • "My wife and I opted for this local gem after reading reviews online. We have been to New York Vity many times and this restaurant ranks high on our foodie list. I ordered the short rib rigatoni and my wife ordered the gluten free wild mushroom and ricotta cheese stuffed ravioli with the pink sauce-excellent choices. Wine was readonably priced. We will be back"

  • "I chose this place for their gluten free food, and I've come back for more! This time I had the shrimp, spinach, and artichoke omelette as well as the butternut squash and ricotta gluten free ravioli. SO GOOD! I'd just recommend getting the omelette with cheese. The ravioli with alfredo was amazing. After dinner, I had the red velvet gluten free cake--the cream cheese icing was PHENOMENAL! This place is a great find."

  • "This restaurant is great for people with food allergies. The first thing they did was ask about food allergies or sensitivities when we sat down. The eggplant ravioli was sensational and the apple crumb dessert hit the spot. they svn soy or almond milk to go with your coffee!"

  • "Bistango was incredible - everything from the gluten-free bread to the eggplant ravioli to the gluten-free carrot cake was phenomenal. They have a pretty considerable menu selection of gluten-free pasta. It's definitely worth the trip to come here - last time I was in NYC for two days, I went here twice in a row!"

  • "I am vegetarian by choice, gluten-free by diagnosis. We planned my birthday trip to New York around gluten-free restaurants. I had the gorgonzola and walnut ravioli with Alfredo cream sauce. First time I have had ravioli in four and half years. I will dream about it until I can return to Bistango. Thanks so much for a wonderful evening!"

  • "I chose this place for a first date with a man sensitive to gluten in wheat. They have bread, pizzas and pastas that are appropriate for the diet restriction. I had the artichokes and the scallop appetizers for my meal, and they were delicious. He had a pizzette (and was not swept away -- but he is quite strange). The meal was modest in price."

  • "let's go straight to the point(s): - staff is super friendly and asks since the beginning who had any food allergies or intolerances. - food was just amazing!!! we started with the burrata, which is a super tasty hand made mozzarella...just perfect!! I got the "carne" plate which is strip steak-like beef. it was perfectly cooked, soft, tasty and juicy. veggies were just perfectly cooked even the mashed potatoes were fluffy and tasty! my girlfriend ordered the tortellini, they were super-soft, fresh and tasty. I couldn't have told the difference between those and home-made not-guten-free ones! - dessert was a must and if I wasn't exploding I would have finished that too :) - price...well, $100 for two ppl were ok for a special occasion"

  • "We had dinner at Bistango during a recent family trip to NYC. A friend had recommended the restaurant since he knows that my daughter has a gluten allergy, It was an outstanding experience. Not only was the staff friendly and very knowledgeable about gluten, the food was delicious. Everyone in the family was raving about this dinner days afterward. Everyone enjoyed their entrees and enjoyed the red velvet cake so much that we had to order another one. The Key Lime Pie was outstanding as well. We have already recommended the restaurant to several friends (none of which have any allergies.)"

  • "My girlfriend and I went to this restaurant for valentines and we enjoyed it very much. The food was really good and the employees where very kind. The only thing I didn't like about the night was that we had to wait outside in the cold. We walked a mile and a half to get there in time for our reservation and then had to wait outside for a table to open. Other than that experience, this restaurant is great!"

  • "This was our second visit to Bistango. We were there at Christmas and loved the place so much we decided that if we are in NYC, we have to go back there. :-) The food was excellent again with quick, efficient and polite service. We got a little extra this time as well in the form of some chocolate liquor, which was very nice(especially on vanilla ice cream). The vine is very reasonably priced for a big city restaurant. We are definitely going back!"

  • "Four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals which included the filet of sole and the salmon which were done very well. The creme brûlée was probably the best I've ever had. Will definitely fine again here when back in the city."
