Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent restaurant for gluten free options. We enjoyed the pizza, pasta, salads and the gf bread was a treat."

  • "My daughter has celiac disease and she can not eat wheat based food items. Italian food is particularly difficult. Bistango has a great menu and the food was top notch."

  • "There are not many places that are available where such outstanding gluten free pasta dishes and desserts are served. We were with some people who did not have to be gluten free and they were also pleased with the food. Both gluten free bread and regular bread are available. Not all desserts were gluten free but many were and two that we sampled were excellent. The cheese cake and the red velvet cake were really good. The appetizers were also excellent. We especially loved the artichokes."

  • "The food at Bistango is AMAZING. I have celiac disease so eating gluten free is not a choice, I don't know what I would do without Bistango as I live close to the restaurant and frequently eat there. Anthony (owner) is such a wonderful person, and everyone at Bistango genuinely cares about you. Gluten free or not, you will enjoy the food and atmosphere at Bistango!"

  • "When you have a food allergy, eating out is so difficult. You have to put your faith in people that really may not understand how critical it is to make sure you stay safe. At Bistango Ristorante, there is no worry. I have celiac disease and it is the one place we can go where there is no difference for the enjoyment of people with food issues and those who don't. The food is just that delicious. They ask you in the beginning for any allergies at the table and after that, all is taken care of to perfection. It can get a little noisy inside so we sat outside enjoying the sights and sounds of Manhattan. It was a perfect evening. Go whether you have an allergy or not. You won't be disappointed."

  • "We have eaten dinner here twice in the last month during two separate visits to NYC. Each time the food is delicious and the service very good. Each time we've eaten outside. A great choice for a guest with Celiac Disease and a great choice for their companion. Moderately priced. Well presented entrees."

  • "This is the third time I have dined at Bistango restaurant, and it has now become one of my absolute "musts" when visiting NYC. I suffer from celiac disease, so the fact that I can have a really good restaurant experience, and be safe makes it just such a pleasure for me to eat here. I have plenty of choices and the food is incredibly well-prepared. In addition, my non-celiac friends also had a great meal, so it is easy for me to dine here with friends and everyone have a great evening."

  • "Just about everything on their menu is available gluten-free, including all of the different pasta's and bread. It was all very tasty- we had gluten free ravioli and gluten free tortelini w/ the calamari appetizer. We sat outside on a Friday evening. The hostess was very polite and offered us any of the open tables. Service was very good- waters were always refilled without having to ask and without being overbearing. We enjoyed our experience and will definitely be back!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "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. "

  • "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. "

  • "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."
