Intentional Foods

Location: Mesa, Arizona

“This restaurant is a dream come true! All items on the menu are free of the top 9 allergens – WHAT?!?! YES!!! My daughter was able to order anything on the menu, and it came as a meal, not a bunch of separate plates with allergy flags. And the food was delicious! Desserts are allergen-free too! This was a wonderful way to start our trip in Arizona! We were even lucky enough to meet Lisa, the owner. Wish we were local to enjoy this place all the time! Even a great place to eat if you don’t have allergies.”

@cetchason, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, milk, egg, and avocado allergies

Jewel’s Bakery & Cafe

Location: Phoenix, Arizona

“I always love getting brunch from here when I’m visiting my family in Arizona. It’s celiac-safe, since it’s 100% gluten-free, and has the best comfort food! They also have dairy-free and vegan menus. I’ve tried their classic chicken and waffles, prickly pear BBQ pork sandwich, pickle chips, and donut holes, which were all incredible! They also have great desserts and made a delicious custom engagement cake for us!”

@silverl2, who manages celiac and wheat allergies

Modern Market Eatery

Location: Phoenix, Arizona

“In Arizona, Colorado, and Texas! Extremely safe protocols and dedicated prep areas when it comes to handling gluten and cross contamination. They have a great selection of sandwiches, pizzas, salads, bowls and desserts! As well as a nutrition tool online to help find the tons of vegan and dairy, soy, gluten, egg and nut-free options on the menu. Healthy options and knowledgeable staff!”

@glutenfreeaz, who manages celiac and wheat allergies

Steak 44

Location: Phoenix, Arizona

“The most expensive steak I’ve ever had, but the best fancy date night! The servers are incredibly knowledgeable about what main course and side options are gluten-free. I had a steak with mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts. They will even talk to the chef for you. Free dessert on your birthday! Not a ton of dessert options are gluten-free, but they can always do ice cream.”

@eatglutenfreeaz, who manages celiac and milk and wheat allergies

The White Chocolate Grill

Location: Phoenix, Arizona

“Full separate gluten-free menu, including dessert.”

@pauliwho manages celiac and peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, soy, wheat, potato, barley, rye, chickpea and chocolate allergies

True Food Kitchen

Location: Scottsdale, Arizona

“All I’ll say is that if I can find great food there, you probably can too. Also, all of the desserts are free of most allergens. My favorite is the squash pie.”

@ssallergic, who manages celiac and tree nut, milk, egg, barley, rye, meat, citrus, vegetable, shellfish, and chocolate allergies



Location: Magnolia, Arkansas

“A great pizza place for someone with wheat allergies! I always get their cauliflower pizza crust. They just added gluten-free bread for their sandwiches, and they have some really tasty ice cream and coffee too!”

@eggnoodle, who manages peanut, tree nut, sesame, soy, wheat, and vegetable allergies

P.F. Chang’s

Location: Rogers, Arkansas

“They’ve improved their options! In the past I was uncomfortable here, but I recently learned they added options, so I tried again. I had good fried rice, and they also have an amazing chocolate dessert that comes with ice cream that’s gluten-free. Yay!”

@lira9497, who manages celiac and wheat allergies


Annesso Pizzeria

Location: Fresno, California

“If you are in the mood for a delicious pizza, you must try the pizza here. The food here is delicious, and they are very allergy-aware, where my allergy kids were able to eat everything! They have the best ice cream, and they made sure to open a new batch to make sure there was no chance of cross-contamination.”

@dsarsour, who manages celiac and tree nut and seed allergies

Ardi’s Organics

Location: Los Angeles, California

“A great, healthy alternative located in the food court of the Westfield Century City Mall. They make all their buns, and also offer gluten-free buns. The desserts are nut-free, and sandwiches are nut-free also. Just avoid the ranch which is made with cashews. The owner is kind and answered all our questions.”

@dsarsour, who manages celiac and tree nut and seed allergies

Asian Box

Location: Palo Alto, California

“Dedicated gluten-free fast-casual spot that makes Vietnamese street food. I always eat the Bahn Mi sandwich on a gluten-free baguette and the cookies for dessert. Their bowls are also always fresh and delicious.”

@andglutenfree, who manages celiac and an oyster allergy

Birdie G’s

Location: Santa Monica, California

“One of the best date nights I’ve had in awhile. Staff is super knowledgeable, location is beautiful. Menu is very clearly labeled. They make 14 pickle-fried chickens each night fried in a dedicated fryer, and they’re amazing. The fries and aioli are enormous and so good. We also ordered the fried mushroom caps and rice pudding for dessert. Huge patio, also incredibly dog friendly.”

@andglutenfree, who manages celiac and an oyster allergy

Café Gratitude

Location: Los Angeles, California

“Delicious vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free desserts, burgers, salads, and more!”

@shanadeurioste, who manages celiac and milk, soy, wheat, rice, barley, rye, and oat allergies

Camino Alto

Location: San Francisco, California

“This is a must-visit restaurant if you’re visiting San Francisco! It’s in the Cow Hollow area, and the concept is that the chef changes the menu every day based on ingredients that are in season and available at local farmer’s markets. The menu is always 100% gluten-free! They have usually 1-2 dishes with tree nuts (never peanuts) like hazelnuts and almonds, but our waiter was phenomenal in giving all the ingredients in each dish, checking that their pesto was nut-free (it’s made with pumpkin seeds), being super understanding of my questions, and taking my allergies very seriously! We had two amazing fruit aperitifs, the Japanese sweet potato appetizer (literally so good), and shared the pork belly and zucchini salad entrees. Everything was delicious! All their desserts are also nut-free! We finished the night with this fabulous chocolate pot de crème with homemade whipped cream. You HAVE to visit here if you’re taking a trip to San Francisco!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages celiac and peanut and tree nut allergies

El Cantaro

Location: Monterey, California

“Wonderful hole-in-the-wall vegan Mexican restaurant in Monterey! Had delicious chips and guac as an appetizer, a huge dinner, and even safe ice cream for dessert! One of the only “authentic” feeling restaurants I’ve ever eaten at. Completely vegan and very few nuts. Went back multiple times while on vacation!”

@missmeliss1895, who manages celiac and peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, and shellfish allergies

Flo’s V8 Cafe

Location: Anaheim, California

“Had a great time dining at Flo’s V8 Cafe in Car’s Land! There are no nuts on the menu, although the staff do alert that the Impossible burger is not tree-nut allergy-safe, as it contains coconut, but it is fine for me! They have gluten-free buns and a dedicated fryer just for fries, and my meal came with an allergy stick! We waited in line to order so I could explain my allergies, but there is also the option to use the allergy-friendly mobile order through the Disney app. Their milkshakes are also nut allergy-safe, but just make sure to ask for no cookie crumbles on top if you are gluten-free!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages celiac and peanut and tree nut allergies

Honey Hi

Location: Los Angeles, California

“Whenever I’m in Silver Lake, I always make a point to visit Honey Hi. Honey Hi is another dedicated gluten-free, refined sugar-free restaurant. Their menu is full of healthier options and a few not as healthy ones. If you’re looking for one of the healthier options, opt for the grain or miso bowl and add a smoothie made with almond and pumpkin seed milk. I usually grab a stack of the hazelnut and brown rice pancakes and mushroom hot chocolate to wash it down. Grab a cassava flour chocolate chip cookie on your way out to munch on while you explore this side of town.”

@andglutenfree, who manages celiac and an oyster allergy

Il Fornaio

Location: San Jose, California

“The manager was on top of it! He also gave the boys sorbet on the house. They both enjoyed delicious pasta.”

@dsarsour, who manages celiac and tree nut and seed allergies


Location: South Lake Tahoe, California

“This was one of my favorite restaurant finds of the year! It’s a Hawaiian restaurant in South Lake Tahoe (near Heavenly Ski Resort) with such delicious food! They have everything from fish to land entrees, sushi rolls, appetizers, fun drinks, and super cool desserts! There are a few things with almonds and macadamia nuts, but no peanuts, and the staff was very helpful with explaining the allergens/ingredients in each dish. There are a lot of gluten-free options, and they are all labeled on the menu. I got a California roll (their imitation crab is gluten-free), and the halibut with risotto which was so good! They also have amazing mocktails & lemonades. Highly recommend for fabulous food and a superb dining experience!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages celiac and peanut and tree nut allergies

Lemonade Restaurant

Location: Glendale, California

“The best Los Angeles dessert comes from here and it’s so random! They make a vegan, gluten-free s’mores brownie that I’ve flown cross country for (twice!!) Very consistently labeled for allergens and is a fast paced sit down restaurant!”

@holmesmeg8, who manages celiac and milk and vegetable allergies

Love Baked Wings

Location: Los Angeles, California

“Fast casual chicken wing restaurant with all gluten-free wings, rubs, sauces, and sides. The only gluten on this menu comes from their sandwich bread, but why would you order a sandwich when you can eat wings in so many flavors? My go-to order is 6 wings in their sesame ginger sauce, 6 wings in their house rub, carrot fries (even better than sweet potato fries), and fresh baked cookies for dessert. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, try the cauliflower or chickpea wings! Rumor has it the owner is/was Beyoncé’s personal chef, so you know the food is good.”

@andglutenfree, who manages celiac and an oyster allergy

Maldon’s Bistro

Location: Irvine, California

“If you are in Orange County, at Disney, or just passing by, you must stop by here. Everything is gluten-free and made in house. They can also accommodate all allergies. You can eat everything from fried chicken, to crepes, to a French dip, and amazing cookies. The owners are super friendly and welcoming. This restaurant is a dream come true for those who suffer from celiac and other allergies. They even sell their fresh baked bread loaves to take home!!!”

@dsarsour, who manages celiac and tree nut and seed allergies

Malibu Farm Pier Cafe

Location: Malibu, California

“Malibu Farm Pier Cafe is a fun and trendy spot in Malibu, California. They are super accommodating to allergies. The food is fresh and delicious. I absolutely love the shaved brussel sprout salad. The SunButter chip ice cream is also really great.”

@sarahandspices, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, wheat, soy, seed and grain allergies

Next Level Burger

Location: San Francisco, California

“I cannot speak for the main menu, but the coconut and soy soft serve were AMAZING! The coconut is made in-house, and the soy is made using the Temptation base. These are the only ice cream bases they have in the restaurant (both vanilla) and they come out of a dedicated machine—so no risk for cross-contact! Because I was not comfortable using the blenders (have had reactions to supposedly “cleaned” blenders in the past), I had a huge “unshaken” vanilla twist sundae with tons of chocolate sauce! I called the restaurant ahead of time, and they put me in touch with their chocolate sauce manufacturer—free of my allergens! This was SUCH a treat and I only hope that this chain expands beyond the West Coast!”

@missmeliss1895, who manages celiac and peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, and shellfish allergies

Oceana Coastal Kitchen

Location: San Diego, California

“This restaurant far exceeded my expectations and was such a great allergy find! There are no peanuts on the menu, and the only nut in the kitchen is almonds! The menu is clearly labeled with vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free symbols, so it was very easy to order a safe gluten-free meal! The waiter confirmed with the chef about my allergies and then came back to let me know everything was safe! I had the braised short ribs with polenta, and it was one of the best meals I’ve had! I was also safely able to have the creme brûlée! All the desserts are made in house, and there were no nuts on the menu (except almonds in one biscotti that was a topping on one dessert!) Highly recommend if you are in San Diego!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages celiac and peanut and tree nut allergies

Oceans & Earth Restaurant

Location: Yorba Linda, California

“This is a 100% dedicated gluten-free restaurant! When I inquired about my nut allergies, the chef told me they don’t use any peanuts or tree nuts in the kitchen! I was a little hesitant at first (I have never come across a restaurant free of gluten AND nuts), but our waitress was so kind and answered all my allergy questions! Everything on the menu is baked/made from scratch in house: the gluten-free brioche buns, pizza crusts, cookies, and desserts, so there is no chance of cross-contact with nuts! They even make their own ice cream! I was able to safely have any dessert on the menu, which has never happened before at a restaurant! Aside from allergies, the food is SO GOOD! Highly recommend trying the mac and cheese, the brioche bun burgers, and the berry cobbler with vanilla ice cream! After dessert, our waitress also brought us a little plate with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages celiac and peanut and tree nut allergies


Location: Los Angeles, California

“Pikunico is a fast casual Japanese kara-age (fried chicken) joint located in downtown Los Angeles. The only menu item containing gluten here is the sandwiches, so feel free to order all the chicken, salads, sides, and cookies you want. I love the classic chicken thighs that come with house made pickles and a variety of fun sauces for dipping. The fingerling fries are a nice accompaniment and the miso de leche cookies are delicious!”

@andglutenfree, who manages celiac and an oyster allergy

Pizza Antica

Location: San Jose, California

“The staff were very helpful and assured us that the boys are safe eating there. One of them had a cheese pizza and the other had the spaghetti. The dessert was also safe for both of them!”

@dsarsour, who manages celiac and tree nut and seed allergies

Pura Vita

Location: West Hollywood, California

“This vegan Italian restaurant is amazing and they even have gluten-free bread and bruschetta!!! Only one type of gluten-free pasta, but they take cross contact very seriously. They even have gluten-free cake for dessert.”

@reavey, who manages celiac

State Bird Provisions

Location: San Francisco, California

“Had a fabulous and safe meal here! This is a well known restaurant in SF with amazing dishes. We had a big group and did the prefixed menu. When we were seated our waiter checked with everyone to confirm allergies (we also emailed in advance so they prepared things ahead of time). As we went through the courses, the waiter brought me some of my own dishes and also let me know what dishes that were brought for the whole table were safe for me. I will say because there were a lot of people it felt a little overwhelming communicating with our waiter, and one dish gave me a bit of anxiety that I needed to double check (the sauce ended up being guajillo chile paste, which looks and tastes nutty). One of the main dishes had a lot cashews but I was brought a cashew-free bowl. I ate safely and loved the tahini cucumber and pork belly entrees! They also brought me a safe dessert and a specially made gluten-free state bird!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages celiac and peanut and tree nut allergies

Super Duper Burgers

Location: San Francisco, California

“100% nut-free burger chain in San Francisco! They use Straus ice cream for their shakes which is made in a nut-free facility! I’ve gotten a burger here wrapped in lettuce safely with a gluten allergy—I will say they do have a small kitchen and aren’t the most aware about gluten cross-contact, but I felt ok with telling them my allergy + asking for a lettuce wrapped burger. Their burgers are so good! Definitely a must stop in San Francisco with nut allergies!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages celiac and peanut and tree nut allergies

The Habitat Burger Grill

Location: Daly City, California

“Was running errands at the mall yesterday and wanted to try someplace new. The Habit’s nutritional/allergen menu was easy to find on their website, and was extremely clear and easy to read. There was no shellfish at all, and the only peanuts/tree nuts used are on ice cream sundaes (the ice cream and milkshakes are labeled as peanut/tree nut free). Walking in, the kitchen is open so you can see what is going on. The burger and food prep line is completely separate from the area where ice cream is handled, and the nuts for the sundaes were in a clear and closed container. There were multiple sinks, and I observed an employee washing hands after switching tasks. I felt super safe and didn’t even tell the cashier about my allergies because of how confident I felt. I had a cheeseburger with avocado and fries, and it was great! Definitely going to come back.”

@samsafeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, shellfish, and pea allergies

Tocaya Modern Mexican

Location: Burbank, California

“Really great gluten-free and vegan options! Clearly marked on their menu. Their salads are great. They also have gluten-free tortillas for their burritos and quesadillas! Lots of vegan cheese options as well. Great desserts too!”

@jbett923, who manages celiac and peanut, egg, and milk allergies

401k Food and Wine

Location: Los Angeles, California

“If you’re looking for a great dinner spot on the west side, make a reservation at dedicated 100% gluten-free 401k Food and Wine. This wine bar is owned by the same owner as Sinners and Saints Bakery two doors down. 401k has a great wine menu and an inventive and different food menu to pair. Make sure to sit on the back patio then start your meal with the buttermilk biscuits and finish it with mini corn dogs, beef sliders, or carne asada quesadilla. For dessert, grab an order of churros.”

@andglutenfree, who manages celiac and an oyster allergy


Root Down

Location: Denver, Colorado

“A clearly labeled menu with an incredibly helpful staff. They have several dinner options, dedicated fryers, and gluten-free desserts. I ordered the Lamb Sliders on their homemade gluten-free buns with sweet potato fries. For dessert, I had their gluten-free and vegan chocolate truffles.”

@eatglutenfreeaz, who manages celiac and milk and wheat allergies

Swiss Chalet Restaurant

Location: Vail, Colorado

“Such a fun restaurant with SO MANY GLUTEN FREE OPTIONS! The waiters are well-informed on how to accommodate allergies and it is one of the first questions they ask. Tons of dishes are naturally gluten-free and it’s easy to make the cheese fondue gluten-free by just replacing the baguette pieces with any of their other dipping options. There is so much to choose from on the menu so this is a restaurant that you could make multiple reservations at within one visit to Vail: one day raclette, one day fondue, one day appetizer and entree! There are also multiple safe desserts such as a hot fudge sundae, chocolate fondue with berries to dip (they do not bring the sponge cake if you mention celiac), or chocolate covered strawberries.”

@gluttenous, who manages celiac and egg allergies


Plan B Burger Bar

Location: Glastonbury, Connecticut

“Amazing burgers, clearly labeled. No fillers. Everything fried in rice flour, dedicated fryers for gluten-free. Gluten-free dessert. Never have a problem here, great service!”

@aaa, who manages celiac and almond, soy, wheat, vegetable, fruit, barley, and rye allergies



Location: Washington, District of Columbia

“An educated staff and super accommodating! If you mention allergies, they bring you a very thorough menu that is marked for gluten, egg, shellfish, dairy, and more. There are plenty of options for any allergen avoidance, and they accommodate dishes easily to gluten-free. The hummus and baba ghanoush is some of the BEST I’ve ever had, and it is a MUST ORDER. The apricot greek yogurt with apricot sorbet for dessert is SPECIAL. You cannot leave this spot without staying for dessert. This is definitely a place I will be visiting again—I LOVED IT!!”

@gluttenous, who manages celiac and egg allergies


Brine Seafood and Raw Bar

Location: Sarasota, Florida

“The staff in Florida was AMAZING with gluten-free knowledge! They let us know about desserts that were gluten-free (flourless chocolate cake) they even told us the fryer for the chips was designated gluten-free.”

@rootintootingf, who manages a celiac allergy

Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant

Location: Tampa, Florida

“They offer everything from gluten-free pasta, burgers (gluten-free buns included), chicken, seafood, beef, salads, and some amazing desserts. The S’more Budino (without the graham crumbs) is a great reason alone to make a visit there. Imagine this—caramel custard layered with Valrhona chocolate mousse and toasted marshmallow. The last time I was there, I had their Thai Lettuce Wraps and Ellie’s Chicken Piccata, which were also fantastic. I’ve had salads and other offerings on previous visits and have never been disappointed (or gotten sick). They also have wine pairings suggested with each menu item.”

@athomewithshay, who manages celiac and peanut, tree nut, egg, and milk allergies

Fresh First

Location: Fort Lauderdale, Florida

“While staying in Fort Lauderdale for a month, I was very excited to find Fresh First! It is a 100% gluten-free restaurant and safe for celiacs. I have friends who aren’t gluten-free and eat there often! The food was absolutely delicious! I had the Eggs Benedict and the chicken salad sandwich. BLT and the chocolate chip cookies every time, which are hands down some of my favorite! The cold brew coffee is a must! Check this place out if you’re in the Fort Lauderdale area!”

@gfreelee, who manages celiac and wheat allergies

Gasparilla Island Grill

Location: Orlando, Florida

“They have an allergen menu. They have gluten-free bread for the many sandwiches they are famous for, allergy-friendly mac and cheese (two different types) and a plant-based ready-to-eat dessert. Lots of prepackaged food options. This is a nice option to grab the monorail from Magic Kingdom and come here for some safe food without the long lines!”

@seelyhaislip, who manages celiac and peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, soy, fish, shellfish, grain, and legume allergies

Hollywood & Vine

Location: Orlando, Florida

“Come hungry as this place gives you so much food!! Hollywood & Vine was the best experience ever! The staff was so helpful and accommodating and the chef made the meals fit our needs or completely changed and made items from scratch! The desserts were amazing as well! The chefs and staff went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing experience! These were some of the best gluten-free rolls we’ve had! This is a sit-down, full-service experience with characters! It is a must-do if you have kids!!”

@kedbachwho manages celiac and a milk allergy

Meat Market Steakhouse

Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant

Location: Orlando, Florida

“AMAZING! I do not even have words! If you are going to Disney, you must go here! It is located inside Hollywood Studios! I had a shake for the first time in my life…and not just any shake, but a cookie shake made with Tofutti ice cream, Enjoy Life cookies, rice milk, coconut whipped cream, and house-made chocolate sauce! Chef Daniel makes everything in his own station, so no need to worry about cross-contact! In addition to the shake, I had an outstanding burger and fries! Definitely one of the best meals of my life, and the chef could not have been any kinder!!!”

@missmeliss1895, who manages celiac and peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, and shellfish allergies

The Crystal Palace

Location: Orlando, Florida

“Amazing with my EOE!! The chef went over the entire buffet with me, and brought out dairy-free butter for my bread! When we had dessert, she was able to bring me chocolate chip cookies (Enjoy Life brand!) and vanilla soy ice cream. Everything was delicious, and I was so happy!”

@elaineeannaa, who manages celiac and a milk allergy


Aqua Terra Bistro

Location: Buford, Georgia

“Using their allergen information guide, I had a safe dining experience here! I’m not sure what it’s called, but I started with a tomato dip that bread is normally dipped in. They offered cucumbers which I thought was great! I also brought my own bread and it was so good. For my main entree, I got blackened chicken with roasted asparagus. And for dessert, I had a mango lime granita! It was so good. It reminded me of something Disney World would give me for dessert.”

@samisafeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, wheat, and shellfish allergies


Hukilau Lanai

Location: Kapaʻa, Hawaii

“This place was a major find and was incredible. They have a dedicated gluten-free menu with TONS of options. They also brought gluten-free bread and even had a delicious gluten-free dessert option.”

@celiacfoodlover, who manages a celiac allergy

Lahaina Grill

Location: Lahaina, Hawaii

“I recently went to Maui and had the best meal here! Gluten-free items were indicated on the menu. The server was very attentive to my gluten-free needs and stated that the chefs take celiac and food allergies very seriously. He brought a bread basket for my non-celiac fiancé and made a point to place it on his side of the table far away from me. Everything I ordered was delicious and celiac safe. I enjoyed the bufala tomato salad topped with black Hawaiian sea salt, sautéed mahi-mahi, and flourless coffee-infused chocolate cake for dessert.”

Elephant + Vine

Location: Evanston, Illinois

“This is a new vegan restaurant that is also 100% peanut and tree nut (not including coconut) free! Aside from one restaurant in Disney World, this is the only place I’ve found milkshakes that are safe for my allergies!! The double chocolate shake was an absolute dream come true! I tried both the coffee and vanilla shakes as well, which my parents ordered! They showed me labels of the ice cream, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce, and I am just so super excited to have a new safe and delicious place!”

Glen Prairie Local Flavor Fine Food & Drink

Location: Glen Ellyn, Illinois

“I can not say enough good things about this restaurant. It is a hidden gem for gluten-free dining. From the fire cracker shrimp starter, fresh soups, fish and chips, short ribs, Amish chicken, hand crafted cocktails, locally sourced ingredients, and finish your meal with decadent desserts. The menu constantly changes as they use seasonal ingredients. The service has always been friendly and knowledgeable regarding gluten free. Additionally, the menu is clearly marked. Not only the food menu, the cocktail drink menu as well. Now that’s impressive!”

Monteverde Restaurant & Pastificio

@snorris, who manages celiac

Paulie Gee’s Logan Square

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“First deep dish pizza! Waitress was so kind and gladly took my allergen sheet to the kitchen and asked which items on the menu were safe for me. Came back and gave one option, saying it was the option easiest for them. I was so excited!! This pizza was so good, and she didn’t mind when we double checked the ingredients. The crust was so squishy for gluten-free and the cheese made my mom and brother really suspicious because of how real it tasted. Overall amazing experience! Plus I got strawberry mojito ice cream for dessert.”

@samisafeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, wheat, and shellfish allergies

RPM Italian

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“I had a great experience at RPM. My family did Easter brunch at RPM, and they have a great menu with plenty of allergy friendly options. My entire meal was gluten-free and free of my other allergens. I had the best affogato for dessert! RPM is a great allergy-friendly option & is delicious!”

The Highland Queen Drive-In

Location: La Grange, Illinois

“A little fast food joint on 55th that has great burgers and fries! I asked and they use soybean oil in the fryer. The only nuts in the kitchen are peanut toppings and peanut dip which are kept next to the other toppings/dips. However the owner assured me that everything is cleaned between each meal prep and the staff does everything in their power to eliminate cross contamination. I’ve always felt safe eating here but if you’re worried about peanuts, maybe just avoid the ice cream! Along with soft serve, they have blizzard-style ice cream which is super yummy! If you’re dairy free, there’s also a Hawaiian ice dessert.”

@reganh, who manages celiac and milk and egg allergies

Yardbird Table & Bar

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Finding gluten free fried chicken is nearly impossible, and Yardbird had a GREAT gluten-free fried chicken. Honestly didn’t even taste gluten-free. So many options were clearly marked, even delicious desserts! Staff was very aware of allergies and very accommodating for my allergy.”

@anovak14, who manages celiac and a wheat allergy

Smith & Wollensky

Location: Chicago, Illinois

Another successful birthday dinner, this time overlooking the Chicago river @smithwollensky We left dinner completely stuffed but definitely satisfied. There wasn’t a thing we ordered that we didn’t enjoy! Be warned the slices of cake on the dessert menu are HUGE & tasty, making it so hard to not finish!

Classic Burgers

Location: West Springfield, Massachusetts

“They can grill you a safe burger, and their fries are in a frier only with fries. Their fries are gluten-free. They have many homemade ice creams. They have an allergy sheet with info. Gluten-free Cake Batter ice cream! They clean their scoops when requested for allergies too. Never gotten sick.”

Location: Boston, Massachusetts

“Our go to celebration spot and a must try in Seaport! Delicious Greek food and a very educated staff, who happily suggest any modification to menu items to make allergy safe so I’m still able to try most of the menu! One of the dips on the hummus platter had wheat so they prepped the two safe ones separately for me with crudité and my partner enjoy the unsafe one with some pita. Highly recommend the coffee pork chop (the only place I’ll even eat pork it’s so good) and the scallops with risotto! Also they make a killer gluten-free bday dessert so definitely stop but on a birthday.”

Amalfi by Bobby Flay

Location: Las Vegas, Nevada

“This was such a fun experience, especially for those who love seafood. When our server was alerted of our allergies he went through our menu and pointed out everything that was safe for us. If you choose to eat fish, you walk up and and choose the fish you want. Everything was delicious, including the desserts!!”

Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak

Location: Las Vegas, Nevada

“This was our first time here and I cannot say enough good things about it. Our server, Brianne, was amazing and knew the ingredients in every dish. She told me there is gluten in only two menu items and dairy in three. Each course is prepped in its own space, and each fryer is used for one item only. Allergy foods are tagged all the way through, but she went to the kitchen to speak to them to ensure they knew about my dishes. The food was phenomenal. I couldn’t decide between two salads, so she bought me two small plates of each. She made sure all sides ordered were allergy-free in case I wanted to try them. They even have house made sorbet, so I could have dessert. If in Vegas, I highly recommend.”

Yardbird Southern Table and Bar

“This place is the best. They have a huge menu full of gluten-free options. I always opt for the fried chicken and waffles. They make it with a dedicated fryer and dedicated waffle iron. And it’s SO good. Now they have multiple desserts as well that are safe, like a cheesecake and key lime pie. The chicken will take longer than normal, but it’s worth the wait. Make a reservation.”

Location: Bloomfield, New Jersey

“They have a very extensive vegan menu in addition to a traditional menu. The waitress was very helpful, and worked with the chef to make my son a custom pizza on a vegan gluten-free crust with vegan cheese, veggies, and meats. They also have a wide selection of vegan desserts. The waitress even sent the baker a copy of his allergy card, and he was able to have two cakes—took them both to go! The traditional empanadas were delicious, but they do have a selection of vegan ones as well. We’ll definitely be back the next time we are in the area.”

Café Deux

“As someone with many food allergies, I’m so happy to be able to dine at Café Deux, and order multiple items from the menu. The entire restaurant is tree nut free! I’m dining here or taking out often. A burger on a gluten free bun is my favorite, along with tuna “noodles” (no gluten in sauce), short rib special, gluten-free pasta, salads. Being able to eat their house made “cupped” dessert is such a treat. Their dessert menu has many gluten-free and vegan options! The atmosphere is welcoming and designed comfortably that I’m not asking for the check to leave after eating, I want to stick around for an espresso martini. During the day, I’m happy to grab a delicious coffee with my favorite oat milk, Elmhurst barista blend!”

“Delicious Caribbean food! They have lots of gluten free options like getting curries over rice instead of in rotis and salad bowls. The ice cream here is also super cool as it has very exotic flavors like Pandan or Coconut (being vietnamese i was suprised they would have pandan!). Excited for next year to see what they add to the menu.”

Kesté Pizza & Vino

Location: New York, New York

“The best gluten-free pizza I’ve ever had is from Kestè in NYC. Nothing compares to how fluffy the crust was. Honestly, I couldn’t even tell it was gluten-free. They also have calzones and gluten-free dessert options. If you are also dairy free, there are not a ton of dairy-free options.”

They take food allergies very seriously and have dedicated coolers, prep areas and kitchen tools to prevent cross-contamination. After messaging the business regarding one of their frozen desserts, we received a call from the owner explaining in detail their allergen practices. FYI I believe they use coconut as the base of their delicious frozen desserts. Highly recommended!”

Location: New York, New York

“This was our second trip to a crafted hospitality restaurant this summer. Not only was this restaurant beautiful with an outdoor patio overlooking the east river, the food was great, and the staff was not only knowledgeable, but very kind as well. They ask if what you avoid is an allergy or preference because they have separate pans and utensils for food allergies and take every precaution to avoid cross-contamination. I am gluten, grain, dairy, and soy-free, including oils, I avoid legumes because of the soy issue, and do not eat red meat. Our lovely server asked the chef what I could eat, and I had a choice of at least four appetizers either off the menu or slightly modified (the watermelon carpaccio was amazing…so flavorful), and I was able to eat dessert (sorbet). I highly recommend.”

Senza Gluten

“Finally decided to check out this restaurant because of all of the hype and it definitely deserves it! The food is 100% gluten free and the pasta dishes are so good. My favorite thing is the dessert, specifically the tiramisu, because it doesn’t taste gluten free and it so delicious. I didn’t have any trouble with nuts but I had to avoid some of the desserts.”

Smokin’ Al’s

Location: Massapequa Park, New York

“Most amazing place ever. My dad’s best friend’s restaurant! My dad has celiac and everyone in my family is gluten free (except 2) and all the staff and owner (Alan) are very aware of allergies! The ribs are to die for! There is a separate gluten free menu and vegan/meatless options as well. The best dessert is Mississippi mud, a super rich and creamy flourless chocolate cake slice, but more of a fudge. It seriously is the best gluten free dessert I have ever had. Go try Smokin Al’s out!”

The Odeon

“Huge shout out to The Odeon! Great delicious menu and very educated staff! We asked about the desserts (which we normally do not bother with for fear of cross contamination) but we were given the green light to eat their housemade donuts (which were amazing)! The waitress told me once they are informed about an allergen at a table , it is flagged in the kitchen , and they are aware of anything that comes out to the table after that.”

They can even make their dessert biscuits gluten free, so get the Nutella and banana one. You have to come here!”

Mox Boarding House

Location: Portland, Oregon

“This was a magical treat of a find! I called ahead to check on whether they accommodated our allergies and they said they had several gluten-free and vegan options and the only “nuts” I think they said they have are pine nuts (which my son isn’t allergic to). Amazing menu and service- so welcoming! My son ordered the tacos for lunch and we had gluten free and vegan ‘donut holes’ for dessert but there was at least one other apple crisp with oat ice cream option (and I think others). Fun drink menu for kids and adults and you get to play games for free while you are at the table and then you get a 15% discount if you want to purchase the game. WOW.”

My son has allergies to 8 of the 9 (minus coconut and almond) and a few additional (honey and oat).There were only a handful of items off-limits to him. He was even able to have dessert (coconut ice cream with a pomegranate and date molasses), which was a first at a restaurant. All the food was delicious!”

“I may be biased because I was hungry, but this was arguably the best pizza I have ever had! No nuts in the entire restaurant!! But they told me to still tell the waiter my nut allergy, so they could write it down and alert the kitchen to change gloves. I got the gluten-free Providence Community flatbread which came with mozzarella, caramelized onions, and mushrooms and was SO GOOD! All gluten-free pizzas are cooked in and come to the table in a foil ‘pie dish’ to prevent any cross-contamination. They also have vegan cheese! Didn’t ask about dessert because I was very full, but I saw a homemade gluten free brownie on the menu and absolutely nothing with nuts! Would highly recommend!”

I ended up ordering a vegetable soup (gluten-free!) and we split had an antipasto salad. When they brought out my meal they confirmed the meal was safe from nuts. I even ordered a “classic Belgian waffle” for dessert (also gluten-free and made with rice flour and chickpea flour) Some of the other waffles contained nuts as toppings but they were able to keep these separate. Would recommend!!

The menu was labeled with items that were gluten free. I tried one of their poke bowls that use gluten free tamari sauce. Some salads looked safe as well. A couple tacos were labeled gluten free but not all of them so there may be a chance for cross contact, I didn’t ask tonight. The food was really good! They had a couple desserts labeled gluten-free as well!”

Le Potager de Charlotte

Location: Paris, France

“My son was able to eat a 3-course meal from this restaurant. He started off with the grilled romaine lettuce, then had the seasonal salad with fruit for his main, and finished with the chocolate mousse (without the pecans.) They had a menu in English on their website that includes allergen information. Initially, he had ordered the almond and rice pancake for dessert, however upon review with the chef, there was apparently peanut in the flour (which wasn’t listed on the menu.) We had Equal Eats cards translated in French, which helped a lot, even though the staff spoke English. My son felt safe eating here and even ordered a mocktail. I’m glad they caught the peanut issue with the dessert—just goes to show you can never fully trust the menu, it’s always best to inform your server of all allergies and not assume you will be safe.“

They even skipped the fryer for french fries and made delicious oven potatoes for us specifically. We were stuffed after lunch HOWEVER, the waitress took it upon herself to find two desserts that were absolutely safe for my kids. She insisted we have them! Which was a real treat because we mainly skip dessert out of an abundance of caution.”

A very calming atmosphere and overall satisfying experience!”

Al Giardinetto da Severino

Location: Venezia, Italy

“Amazing Venice restaurant that was able to make almost everything gluten-free. They are another AIC certified restaurant so they’re safe for celiacs and make sure to prepare all their gluten-free food separately. We knew this was a good place to eat because there were at least 20 gondoliers on their breaks eating here. We had bread, fresh seafood and fish, and gluten-free dessert.”

Hotel Da Giorgio Ristorante

Location: Capri, Italy

“Ristorante Da Giorgio is an absolute must when you come to Capri!! The food is delicious, authentic, and fresh with a fantastic open view of the entire island. They have gluten-free pasta and desserts available. No risk of cross contamination as they use separate cookware when alerted of a food allergy. Make sure to tell your waiter when you arrive! Overall wonderful local experience!”

Il Nuovo Faro

Location: Rome, Italy

“Our fav restaurant in Rome & on my favorite street in all of Rome! The owner is soo nice – he speaks pretty good English & has family in NYC! We chatted with him for a while before sitting down and he told me we would be totally fine with nuts. There’s nothing with peanuts & they have an extensive 100% gluten-free menu with lots of pasta, pizza, and dessert options. Some tree nuts but I’ve been fine at most restaurants sticking with pasta! They don’t have an allergy chart like most restaurants in Rome but the menu is in English which was very helpful. I had the salmon fettuccine (they get their gluten-free pasta from a local vendor that makes it fresh) and it was delicious!! One of my favorite meals in Rome for sure. My friends had steak that they also loved. Great wine & cocktails as well + free limoncello shots! Would definitely come back here!”

Klass Restaurant

Location: Rome, Italy

“Came for my birthday dinner and had the prosciutto & burrata app (so good!), the seafood pasta (they did have gluten-free spaghetti) and the cherry ricotta dessert (they kept the almonds off to make it nut-free)! Staff are so kind and made my birthday so special! Highly recommend!”

Le Botteghe Di Donatello Firenze

Location: Firenze, Italy

“This restaurant is right next to the Duomo & was one of our favorite meals in Florence and of our whole trip! They are AIC-certified (Gluten-Free) & every dish is marked for allergens. There were no peanuts listed on the menu & this was confirmed by the owner/chef (who was so nice!) and waiters were also very knowledgeable about food allergies & ingredients in dishes. The menu does note cross contamination as the dish containing that allergen (we were confused by a few nut-free, gluten-free dishes that were marked as containing tree nuts but checked in with the staff and were told which items were safe!) I had the gluten-free bruschetta (so good!) and a steak entree! They also had gluten-free pasta & pizza and everything was listed on a separate gluten-free menu in the back of the main menu. This was the first place I was able to get dessert too! We split the berry panacotta & creme caramel (both no nuts & listed on gluten-free menu) I had no allergy issues & loved our meal! Definitely recommend for gluten & nut allergies in Florence!”

Penisola Experience

Location: Vico Equense, Italy

“Arguably the best meal I’ve ever eaten—ever! I found this experience through Airbnb experiences. The head chef, Cristiano, hosts you at his family home and makes the meal with you completely from scratch. There is a slightly extra charge to cover gluten free ingredients, but it is so worth it! My entire meal was gluten free. I fried my eggplants first so there was no cross contamination in the oil and used all separate appliances for my pasta and dessert. It was truly delicious!! Absolute 10/10.”

Piazza Scammacca

Location: Catania, Italy

“This place is unlike any other. Inside you will find several different kitchens catering to different menu styles. Several offer allergen-friendly (gluten, nut, and dairy) options. One kitchen is strictly gluten-free. We were able to enjoy a traditional Sicilian appetizer of mixed fried fish. It has a rice flour based tempura and is fried in olive oil. We have visited here several times now since finding this gem. I almost forgot the best part! All desserts are gluten-free. Some desserts are diary and/or nut-free!”

Ramè Sushi Naturale Italiano

Location: Rome, Italy

“This place is 100% gluten-free and amazing. Absolutely our favorite restaurant in all of Italy. The service was impeccable. Our server curated the whole menu for us (menu is in Italian) and every dish he selected was better than the next. We had rolls with ricotta, beet chips, plantains, and more. Sushi that could feed a family of 4 (we eat a lot), gluten-free beer, and dessert for all under 100 Euros. Fish is incredible quality and so fresh. It’s a 25 minute walk from city center or 10 minute taxi but the highlight of our trip!”

Ristorante Il Geranio di Gaeta Lucio & C. Sas

Location: Capri, Italy

“Extremely helpful, especially with our nut allergy. They were great at helping us know which dishes to avoid and to notify the chef! Even brought out a separate dessert for our group just for my husband.”

Santa Maria Osteria – Ristorante Pizzeria

Location: Rome, Italy

“Fun & pretty affordable Italian spot right behind the big Rome Termini train station! We stayed at a hotel nearby and walked over for drinks & a late dinner. Overall, it was a good experience but they are not the most allergy aware. The menu is totally labeled for the top 14 allergens, which was extremely helpful. They have gluten-free pizza crust and gluten-free pasta. Gluten wise: I felt extremely comfortable and they totally got the gluten-free thing. Nut allergy wise: I attempted several times to explain to the waiter about the severity of my allergy & cross contamination but he according to my best friends was ‘not getting it.’ But, we did flag down another waiter who said I would 100% be fine with the pizza. I was not confident but did end up getting a gluten-free pizza (margarita) and drinks from the bar (mojitos). Had no allergy issues with nuts or gluten and the pizza was delicious! The first waiter also brought over a bunch of free desserts, including a mini gluten-free tiramisu all on the house which was so sweet! I did not eat because of potential cross-contact with nuts but my friends LOVED the dessert. Would definitely go back for drinks & pizza and definitely a great option for gluten-free people but do recommend a bit more caution if you do have a nut allergy!”

Vecia Cavana

Location: Venezia, Italy

“Another amazing restaurant certified by the AIC (Italy’s celiac association). Entire menu minus 1 item (gnocchi) was gluten-free including the fried foods because they use rice flour. All the servers were knowledgeable about celiac and the manager even came to speak with me. We were given gluten-free bread and crackers and even cookies with the limoncello after the meal! Ordered the fried seafood, scallops, spaghetti, and cheesecake and everything was amazing.”

The Whale Bar

Location: Vommuli Island, Maldives

“Whale Bar was a great spot to get amazing cocktails at Sunset. I highly recommend the bloody Mary, it’s gluten-free and Celiac safe. As far as food items go, I was able to find many things to eat: seafood, some appetizers, dessert.”

Cantinho da Regina

Location: Sesimbra, Portugal

“Owner is amazing. She makes gluten-free and vegan desserts and dishes. Had the most pleasant lunch. The clams were VERY good that I wanted to order another dish. I have a gluten and dairy allergy, and this spot was safe and delicious.”

@jmurphy, who manages celiac and tree nut, milksoy, wheat, vegetable, and fruit allergies


Location: Lisboa, Portugal

“Menu is nut free, and while they are not marked, they have many gluten-free options on the menu. Perfect for home cooked style meal with fresh fish, potatoes, and vegetables! Their dessert options were nut-free as well, including gluten-free chocolate mousse. This place has become very popular due to TripAdvisor rankings so best to show early for a table!!”

Gaucho Edinburgh

Location: Edinburgh, United Kingdom

“BEST MEAL EVER. I had one of the best filets I’ve ever had. Ate here with my food allergic friend who also loved her meal and got to eat a vegan brownie with ice cream for dessert! Our waiter was named Marek, and he was one of the most helpful and kindest waiters I’ve ever had! We accidentally stumbled on this restaurant but it was fate! I can’t recommend enough, especially for steak lovers.”

@reganhwho manages celiac and milk and egg allergies


Location: Edinburgh, United Kingdom

“Two location options in Edinburgh. Great place to eat if you are gluten-free or vegan! If you are allergic to nuts, be careful because they do use various nuts in their bakery, in which all gluten-free and regular breads and desserts are made.”
