Bistango offer tasty, quality-made gluten free pastas, stuffed pastas, pizza, bread, desserts, and beer.
Bistango is gluten free heaven. Located in midtown, it offers an intimate and charming classic Italian atmosphere.
More than the atmosphere, the food blew us away. First the gluten free bread is perfect – crunchy crust with a moist inside. No one would have known it was gluten free.
The bread is good but the pasta is exceptional.
My gluten free teen almost cried when they served the homemade gluten free tortellini with roasted butternut squash, sweet potato, and sage cream with brown butter. She must have asked me three times if it was really gluten free. I even double-checked with the server. She swooned over the pasta and was mumbling how she has not had tortellini in eight years.
My other daughter had the GF spinach ravioli and declared it the best ever.
Since I also cannot have dairy, I assumed the ravioli would be out of the question for me. I was surprised to find out they have a gluten and dairy free ravioli made with eggplant. Oh my goodness! For once I felt like I was not sacrificing because of my dietary restrictions. I can’t even express the happiness this meal brought to us.
I was way too full by the time they presented the dessert menu with a wide selection of homemade gluten free desserts. The girls split a cheesecake with an almond crust.
If you visit New York, it would be a shame to miss this truly excellent restaurant. I really can’t wait to return myself.
