The GF butternut squash ravioli was delicious. I loved that you could have anything Gluten Free as well. It’s very nice (but uncommon) to go to a restaurant and be able to have anything gluten free! Greatly appreciated!

New Year’s Eve dinner with family. Had their tagliata steak with roasted rosemary potatoes. Steak was dripping with oil which made it difficult to enjoy the flavor. There was absolutely no seasonings whatsoever on my potatoes. My wife had the fish, which she stated was also flavorless. Son had a flatbread pizza(margarita) which had prosciutto under the cheese. My son is a vegetarian so this dish was ignored by him. He was adamant that I didn’t complain or ask the server to correct it so $14 down the drain.

Our server, Milan, was great as was the staff busing the table. Overall, a decent experience, but once was enough.

I have celiac disease so finding a good safe Italian place can be hard. Our family had lasagna, butternut squash ravioli (made gf so I could have some as well) and pizza (always made gluten free). All the food was amazing. You couldn’t tell anything was gluten free. Our servers were very knowledgeable and accommodating. I highly recommend this place if you are gluten free or if you’re not! The food was just awesome. We did get a lava cake and it came with caramel gelato. The gelato I do have to say was in a category of its own, just absolutely amazing.

Food was ok - service was ok - switched staff in the middle of meal. 3pm so very slow. Only mediocre meal we had in nyc. Had to go find someone to pay the bill. At $125 for two at lunch very disappointing.

We chose Bistango because we were with a friend who has celiac. She was able to have a full delicious, safe meal: bread, entree (chicken parmagiana), & dessert! We all enjoyed our food and the service was excellent! We will be back.

Nice setting off of hotel lobby but food was very mediocre at best. Pappardelle had weird flavor, linguini with clams was dry and tasteless. We noticed that the tables around us also commented on food being just ok. Bread brought to some tables after meal began, waiter came to take order then not seen again until the check. He asked how things were & we were kind but honest so he just looked perplexed and walked away.
Many great places in NY to eat & this isn’t one of them.

This dining experience was fantastic. My girlfriend has a gluten allergy and everything on the menu is available gluten-free. I jokingly said that I was going to order all my food gluten free so that I could suffer with her. How wrong I was! I ordered everything gluten-free and it was all phenomenal. Even the chocolate lava cake at the end was gluten free and was breathtakingly delicious. My one and only complaint was that my reservation was at 7:30 and I didn't get a table until 8:10. However, my original reservation was for 7pm and they changed it to 7:30 at my request, so I can understand why it might have taken them a little bit longer to get me seated given that they had already accommodated a reservation change for me. The noise level was slightly higher than I would have liked because I had a large family party of around six adults and a few children, but after they finish their meal and left it quieted drastically. I very much enjoyed this restaurant, and although I don't live in Manhattan I plan on making the trip frequently. It's a less than 10 minute walk from Grand Central station. Absolutely phenomenal. Well done Bistango!

Booked here because my friend could only have gluten free food. She was impressed that they could make anything on that menu gluten-free and they had so many options. They did not disappoint the food and desert was excellent. The service was Great, not too noisy, and location great as well. What a true find.

Had another fantastic meal at Bistango this past weekend! I love that I can eat gluten free safely and comfortably, and still have a meal that tastes fantastic. My husband and son (who do not need to eat gluten free) always have great meals there as well. Already looking forward to eating there again on our next trip to the city.

Very disappointing experience. Thanksgiving is only a thanksgiving menu which was not adequately conveyed. Food for Thanksgiving was mediocre - gnocchi and stuffing were good, everything else was just ok. We were given a horrible table with a draft as it was in front of the door and they refused to move us (small party of 3)
Will not be back

A LOT of food, and all gluten free, for our Thanksgiving meal. However, the food was rather pedestrian. The turkey was quite dry, the brussels were over cooked. I just expected something a bit more refined.

Thanksgiving meal. One member in our group has severe Celiac and we decided this restaurant may meet those needs. It was so delicious and everyone was shocked that the entire meal was GF. Each member in the party had a favorite part of the meal. Great food, value, quantity, service, and ambiance!

As an individual with celiac and a good home cook, Bistango is my only choice for a delicious gluten-free meal in Manhattan.
