Very nice 100 % gluten free restaurant! The food tastes good, even for non-celiac disease company. Small minor point is that you can only pay by cash or America Express. There’s an ATM in the basement but you can only withdraw 200 dollars max

It was all fine with the place - nice and sweet sitting outside with all the greens and flowers. BUT:
1. You can pay ONLY cash or Amex (what???) so we had to search for atm around.
2. I had chicken and it was way too dry.
Wine and vegetables were good.

We love this restaurant! The best gluten free I’ve ever had by far. I live in Birmingham, but when we are in NYC we make several visits to Senza Gluten. The owner and staff are the best. I think the prices have gone up a bit since I was there in December of 2018, but I don’t care. The desserts are amazing! Unfortunately I was too full to order dessert this time:( just make sure to save some room.

Everything was fine. Calamari was a bit oily. The snapper was tasty and has a smoky flavor. For dessert, the tiramisu was delicious.

I would recommend removing reservation availabilities after 10 PM if the kitchen wants to close soon. Felt rushed even though we got there at 10:15, 15 min before our reservation time and 45 min before closing time.

The food is fantastic, and being a celiac it is always great going there knowing there will be no problems with the food. My mushroom ravioli was superb. The restaurant was more crowded than before and it seemed more tables are closer together. I can understand though as the food is soo good!

Service was nice. Food was bland and flavorless. Gluten free does not mean lacking taste. Save your money. There are better gluten free options in NY. I had the lasagna; friend had the lamb chops.

We are British visitors, husband with celiac disease. It was wonderful to be able to have pasta in all forms without concern. The food was good without too much art being on display. The decor and ambience were delightful and the unusually low noise level made conversation easy. And the service was polite and attentive without being intrusive.

My husband has a gluten allergy, and we were so appreciative that the entire menu (even cocktails) are GF. No worrying about kitchen standards, no quizzing the waitstaff, no special ordering GF bread for the meal - we were able to just relax and enjoy a wonderful meal. Thank you to the Senza Gluten chef & staff for a memorable evening!

Salt. It’s this thing you put on food to make it taste good. Please season the food more. Everyone at our table was salting their food copiously and remarking at how underseasoned all the dishes were. The food is also very old fashioned Italian American style, with way too much tomato sauce on everything. The desserts are awesome though.

I heard of Senza Gluten in a Facebook celiac disease support group I’m on. It came highly recommend by many people. They were so good! It was nice to go somewhere and order food without worrying about getting sick. The server was very nice, he asked straight away if we had any other food restrictions which I thought was very considerate. I had lasagna and chocolate molten cake. My husband, who does not have celiac, had a steak sandwich and tiramisu. He said it was very good and the potatoes were the best he’s had. If you are gluten sensitive or have celiac check it out! If you can eat gluten still go that’s how good the food is!

Food was absolutely amazing!! I've tried plenty of gluten free foods before because my girlfriend has celiac and usually you can taste that its gluten-free. But at Senza Gluten, you can not taste the difference. Everything was perfect, from the breads, eggplant Parm, to the pastas. The menu/choices were plentiful. She's never been to a restaurant where she could order anything on the menu. They were even sensitive to other allergies when giving us suggestions. Usually with desserts you can really taste that it's missing something because there's no gluten. Not with Senza's bakery from down the block. It was so delicious. This will without a doubt be our go-to place going forward.

Senza Gluten is the closest place to heaven a coeliac could ever pray for. We ended up booking three times with our last meal scheduled for tonight before we long haul home to Sydney. Thank you to all your team and especially the owners for making two coeliacs so happy and well fed. Even the non coeliac said it was the best ravioli he has ever tried!!! We have stopped by your bakery most days as well and have supplies for our flight. Our only request is you open up in Sydney - Woollahra to be exact!!!! I’d happily manage a SG there!!!!!

Good food and friendly service. I’ve been there several times, and the wait staff remembers us, greets us with a friendly smile and polite conversation. I always feel welcomed and comfortable. Unlike many other restaurants, there are many food choices to accommodate my many food allergies. The choices are safe and delicious.

Last time I went through New York I went to Senza Gluten. The prospect of heading out for an Italian meal - all gluten free was brilliant. Last time it was lovely, fun waitress, food great, good - gluten free - beer. Was on my own and travelling for work so I took a book. I did the same thing again this time, but as I was on my own they stuck me in a little side alcove where you could barely swing a cat let alone seat 9+ diners. Waiter was keen to just get me through as quickly as possible. Misunderstood that I wanted two mains as a starter and a main, so brought both at the same time, and once I'd paid my bill didn't say thank you or goodbye as I walked through the door. It was a busy night, but that doesn't mean manners can disappear.

Highly surprised this has sustained over so many years. Far more understandable that this place served those who could not eat gluten twenty years ago, but with so many restaurants offering extensive gluten free options including pastas or other traditionally wheat driven dishes today that are far better than the items that make up this menu, I don't know how they continue to draw patrons.

What a great find!! For people with gluten allergies, going out to eat can be a real challenge! By the time you dissect the menu and grill the wait staff you are exhausted! Not here!! The restaurant is completely gluten free and so you can order any and everything on the menu!!! Yay Calamari!!! Yay Bruschetta!! The food was great and so was the service!! Everyone in our party of four enjoyed their meals. Great Italian food and no gluten!! We will be back!!
