I chose this restaurant because it had gluten free options. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that pretty much anything, including desserts, could be made gluten free. The food was great, both regular and gluten free options, and the service was excellent. I am definitely going back.

I love good Italian food and have struggled with Celiac Disease my whole life. Bistango is the only restaurant that really "gets it." You can have any meal that is on the regular menu, prepared with GF ingredients, i.e: pasta, bread crumbs and delicious italian GF bread with dipping oil....it's the best!

As far as Gluten Free options go Bistango is AMAZING! I've never tasted Ravioli like this - fresh and so tasty. I cannot recommend this place enough to Celiac's out there looking for good (and I mean really good) gluten free pasta.
Its also a refreshing change to be welcomed with "all items on the menu can be gluten free", such a range of choice is rare and exciting - worth every cent.

Wonderful restaurant where the entire menu can be made with gluten free ingredients. The gluten free food is delicious (and I've heard the non-gluten free food is great as well). For brunch I've ordered the chocolate Belgian waffle with berries and for dinner I've gotten the ravioli (hard to find a restaurant with gluten free ravioli). They also serve gluten free Italian bread for no extra charge. Overall I highly recommend!

A déconseiller totalement.
Pour commencer un bloody mary pour lequel la barmaid avait probablement oublié que dans ce cocktail il y a de la vodka. J'ai dû commander un shot de vodka pour donner du goût. C'est rare à NYC !
Une pizza aux légumes pour la suite. Des morceaux d'aubergines de la taille de petits steaks et des bouts de poivrons noyés dans un fromage fondu sans nom.
Les steaks de la suite ne méritent pas qu'on s'y arrêtent.
Bref ... un repas raté !
Éloignez vous de cet endroit !

旅行でNYに訪れる際に日本から予約していきました(*^^*)彼のBirthday dinnerで行きましたが、どのお料理もとても美味しかったです!お洒落な老夫婦もお食事していたり、お店の雰囲気も暗めの照明で落ち着いた雰囲気でした☆小麦アレルギーを持っているので、全てのメニューがグルテンフリー対応して頂けるのも嬉しかったです☆サーモンにブッラータチーズが乗っているものが特に美味しかった♪♪またNewYorkに訪れる際には行きたいお店です(^^)

My husband and I come here often and if we don't make it in person we'll order in our pasta fix. I normally love the food and I have my go to dishes. Tonight we tried all new dishes and was disappointed with both the salmon--too bland, and the pork--too sweet. We'll be back because we love the pasta dishes, and the service is always superb.

We love this place! We are from Jersey, but every time we come to the city, we make reservations to eat here... even if it means an extra cab ride. The gluten free ravioli and pizza are seriously better than anywhere we have ever eaten.... and we've been to a LOT of places for gf choices. We will consider Bistangos a life long place for our family to meet and have dinner!

Recommended by a few friends - apps were okay but dinner and dessert were amazing!! Heaven for a gluten free celiac! A bit overpriced but it is the city so you expect such. Great drink bargains at the bar for happy hour tho! Was quiet so we were able to start at the bar and move to our reserved table after getting some lesser priced glasses of wine. Would def recommend.

Excellent fresh authentic Italian food. My son has gluten, soy and a tree nut allergy. There was a great selection for him to chose from including tiramisu. It was nice to see him be able to enjoy some regular food. The pizza and cavatelli dish were phenomenal. I would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant you will become a regular. The service was excellent also.
