“This was my first time having any type of Chinese food. The first thing out of the waitress’ mouth was ‘do you have any food allergies’? This was by far the most attentive restaurant I’ve been to for allergies. They made me feel comfortable and safe and the food was AMAZING!!!”

4. Oath Craft Pizza - Davis Square

“Aside from the pizza being fantastic, this restaurant is great when it comes to food allergies. Between making these 90 second personal pizzas, the staff always changes their gloves. Additionally, if you inform them of your allergy when you order, they will pull ingredients from separate containers to ensure that there is no cross contamination.”

"This is an awesome spot to hang out, drink coffee, get a bite, etc. It is also great with food allergies. If you inform them of your allergy while ordering, they will make sure that they run the tools used through the dishwasher, always change their gloves, ad they will prepare your food at an allergen free station."

@jzas who manages tree nut and sesame allergies

13. Martsa On Elm

"While the restaurant does have a few types of nuts on their menu, they say that they are able to remove any ingredient from a dish because they cook everything fresh. They’re very conscious about food allergies, especially for an Asian restaurant, and I would go back in a heartbeat!"

@mthomp2468 who manages a peanut allergy

"Great GF menu, lots of choices for starters, mains, and drinks. I had their grilled wings (braised in duck fat? of course!) and a burger. I ate at the bar, bartender was very aware and helpful."

"Had an amazing time here! A friend recommended this little place before visiting Boston. The atmosphere is lovely and the food is great. The menu states to let them know if you have any allergies. My sister is vegan and I am gluten free and they made two separate appetizers that both accommodated our needs."

"An amazing treat! First of all, they list everything that it does not contain very clearly. Very knowledgeable waitstaff. My son was really excited to have anything he wanted from the bakery. We also got some treats, the brownie was amazing! You couldn’t tell any of these treats were vegan or allergy free.”
