    We can here after reading online that they were very food allergy friendly and accommodating - they are! My colleague was relieved and appreciative. All of the food and dessert was delicious and the portions were good. Service was friendly, our waiter was very nice and helpful, but it got slow towards the end of lunch as it got busier and we got back to the office later than anticipated. We will definitely be back.

    Brunch with my dad. Chose to sit outside but then no one came to take our order for quite some time. Our waiter explained that no one told him there was a table waiting outside so a bit of poor communication on the part of the restaurant. The reason I picked Bistango was because their menu can be made gluten free which I greatly appreciated because it’s hard to find places that have more than one or two options available, especially for brunch. I enjoyed my meal

    I was there for a business lunch and we both loved the service, the setting — had a quiet table in an alcove that was perfect for conversation - and the food was healthy, delicious, and beautifully presented — couldn’t ask for more.

    Food was good, good gluten free options. Nice setting and not too loud. Service was nice and accommodating BUT definitely seemed under staffed. Even so, the wait staff took it in stride and was very friendly. Hopefully just a 1 off - would go back to see if another time is similar. If just 1 off night, would recommend. If a regular occurrence, it's a good back pocket option and not a 1st choice option.

    So hard to find a GOOD Italian restaurant that offers gluten-free options - and Bistango knocks it out of the park! They offered GF/dairy-free bread, made sure they understood our needs for each dish, and were very attentive on follow-up. My husbands lasagna and my pappardelle were both amazing!

    Gluten-free flatbreads are amazing and make you wonder why other places can’t get their gluten-free dishes right. Appetizers were great too. Pastas were on the bland side.

    What a wonderful experience. My daughter is allergic to gluten, dairy, egg and soy. The waiter was so knowledgeable and made her feel totally at ease. She said it was the first time she had been made to feel ‘normal’ at a restaurant (she is 18). It helped that they are a totally soy free kitchen and have separate fryers for gluten free. Great food and couldn’t recommend highly enough.

    Very accommodating to food allergies and families with young kids. However, surprised that they don’t just have a separate menu for allergies, considering the waiters expressing how often they serve customers with food allergies. Dined without incident, which is the most important for us.

    ALL GLUTEN FREE. Truly amazing. They really do have their whole menu available gluten free. We tried multiple dishes and dessert and can’t wait to go back. I’m Italian and typically underwhelmed by restaurant pasta dishes but Bistango’s whole menu goes above and beyond.

    Unfortunately, this visit was not quite the same as in the past. The food quality seemed to have dropped off a touch, however, the atmosphere was the most noticeable change. We have always found the atmosphere to exude a relaxed, upscale environment which was inviting for those looking for a nice meal. The restaurant now plays louder 80's style music, think "Ghostbuster's Theme Song", seriously! While the hostess was willing to change the music to something slightly less forward, we walked away from our experience less than impressed. They do an exceptional job handling gluten free, to include celiac requests, and deserve continued compliments in this area.

    Gluten free options not entirely safe for a celiac. I order the chicken and potato gratin and did not feel well after my meal. There was a small issue with our order, but the waiter was kind and resolved it quickly. The menu in the restaurant seemed rather limited.

We had a slight mishap with the wrong order being put in, but they quickly took care of it and everyone was happy with their meals. And, the chocolate lava cake is to die for!
