Intentional Foods

Location: Mesa, Arizona

“This restaurant is a dedicated TOP 8 FREE restaurant located in Mesa, Arizona. It is run by a couple who has a daughter with life threatening peanut and tree nut allergies. They understand that it is a place where families and friends can eat together and everyone is included! They have breakfast, lunch, dinner, and DESSERT options! Some of my favorite desserts are apple and churro donuts and snickerdoodle cupcakes! My favorite items on the menu are the Hacienda Hash Bowl and the Mediterranean bowl. Mama Lisa’s Spaghetti and Meatballs are also a hit! They also have a market full of their favorite top 8 free snacks and goodies. Check them out, you’ll be in for a treat!”

Jewel’s Bakery & Cafe

Location: Phoenix, Arizona

“The absolute best!! Chicken and waffles are bomb! I’ve never had a bad meal or dessert there. I only wished they moved to the east coast when I moved.”

@celiacwifey, who manages celiac and a tree nut allergy

Roka Akor – Scottsdale

Location: Scottsdale, Arizona

“This is one of our absolute favorite restaurants. On top of having outstanding food with the most amazing ingredients, they also have limited nuts on the menu. Only a couple main menu items contain nuts, both of which can be modified to omit them completely. The desserts are the same, and they are super comfortable dealing with nut allergies. Impeccable service and protocol surrounding allergies!”

@lbedwell, who manages peanut and tree nut 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

Benny’s Tacos & Rotisserie Chicken in Westchester

Location: Los Angeles, California

“My absolute favorite taco and burrito place. They do discounts for LMU students!! California burrito is the best (fries inside), and I don’t think they have any nuts in the whole place. I can even have their cream filled churros! Let them know about your allergies, and they’ll take care of you. Delicious and affordable for college kids!”

@kqwright5, who manages peanut, tree nut, sesame, and plantain allergies

Blue Star Lounge

Location: Palm Desert, California

“We came here for dessert. It shares a kitchen with the Rock Wood Grill. The server wasn’t knowledgeable about whether our order contained nuts or sesame. BUT, he was willing to go to the kitchen to ask – and he did! He went to the kitchen to get the answer to our question and then came back to us with the answer. That helped reassure us. We had the baked Alaska and the chocolate sensation. The chocolate sensation comes in this white chocolate shell and they drizzle hot chocolate syrup on it so that the shell melts to reveal more yummy goodness!!”

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!”

Catch LA

Location: Los Angeles, California

“I got a delicious sushi roll here, and my friends and I shared one of the chocolate cake desserts. For the sushi, I told them about my sesame allergy, and they were able to make sure they made it completely safe. They said the dessert we got was nut-free as well.”

@allergyanj, who manages peanut, tree nut, shrimp, sesame, and legume allergies


Location: West Hollywood, California

“This place was AMAZING! Very used to food allergies of all kinds, they said. The dessert menu noted any items with nuts. We don’t have egg or milk allergies, but both the main menu and the dessert menu had tons of vegan options!”

@susie, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Crust Pizzeria

Location: Carlsbad, California

“Crust is our #1 favorite family restaurant. We eat there regularly with our peanut and tree nut allergic son, who usually gets the spaghetti and meatballs or meatball sub. The pizzas have also been safe for him, and he always gets a Caesar salad. Bonus–the ‘road rash’ dessert (like a large fried donut) is also safe! The staff is so friendly, so knowledgeable about the allergens and confirms each time we go. Wonderful family restaurant.”

@jfstacklewho manages peanut, tree nut and seed allergies


Location: San Francisco, California

“I had an amazing experience here! The staff printed a personalized menu for me to show me everything that I could eat. I was able to order a specialty drink, appetizer, main dish, and dessert despite a long list of allergies. The waitstaff was incredibly accommodating and did not make me feel like I was causing any inconvenience. I HIGHLY recommend coming here, even if it is out of the way! Amazing experience.”

@ad123, who manages peanut, tree nut, shellfish, milk, and poppy seed 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

Esin Restaurant & Bar

Location: Danville, California

“We recently ate here and had a wonderful time. They make almost everything in-house, including the breads and desserts. So they knew exactly what the ingredients were for everything. It is rare that my son will eat all the dishes on the table because usually there are one to two dishes we order that may not be safe for him. He ate his dish and everyone else’s, plus bread and desserts. He could not look up from the table to tell the host and server the food was good. Haha. We had a bunch of small plates and split entrees. Burrata, French onion soup, pear flatbread, shrimp & scallops, pot roast, chocolate raspberry cake, mango sorbet, and bread.”

@jrbruin, who manages peanut, tree nut, sesame and agave allergies


Location: Manhattan Beach, California

“When I notified our server of allergies, she immediately notified the kitchen and checked in with me multiple times. My family loves this place, especially their fish tacos and dessert options!”

@treatpeoplewithkindness, who manages tree nut, milk, soy, sesame, vegetable, fruit, meat, chickpea, and chocolate allergies


Location: San Francisco, California

“Had an amazing Valentine’s Day dinner here and will definitely be back! We didn’t know when booking the reservation but showed up and were told it is a 100% nut-free kitchen!! The whole menu is labeled with gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian symbols, and most of the menu can be adjusted to accommodate other allergies. We got the roasted broccoli, gluten-free chicken wings, beef roast with polenta, and finished with the pineapple mochi cake (gluten-free)! Everything was amazing!! There were so many gluten-free options, and I felt super safe enjoying anything on the menu. Such a find—highly recommend for anyone looking for a great meal in San Francisco!”

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

Koi Palace

Location: Daly City, California

“Long-time and loyal customers. We have safely eaten here millions of times and love their dim sum options, as well as their dinners. I really like their durian puffs (lunch dessert) and their bean sprouts, whisk steamed fish, sweet and sour anything!, coffee ribs, and soy sauce chicken, which comes with really delicious sweet soybeans underneath. Great safe Cantonese spot.”

@nutfreefun, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Monster Phở

Location: Oakland, California

“Fantastic peanut-free authentic Vietnamese food! Our children finally got to try pho and the broth was delicious and flavorful. We had a large party of 10 and the waitstaff were attentive and very knowledgeable of their menu items. We ordered beef pho, pho ga, the chicken rice platter as well as the fried tofu, fresh shrimp rolls, chicken wings and potstickers. All were authentically prepared and served with a side of dô chua (pickled carrot and diakon) as well as their dipping sauces. All beautifully plated and freshly prepared. The desserts were great: we tried the coffee flan, the deep fried banana and ice cream but the ultimate standout was the pandan waffle with ice cream! You can truly taste the wonderful fragrant pandan flavor!”

@jbeez, who manages peanut, tree nut, and shellfish allergies

Noble Bird Rotisserie

Location: Long Beach, California

“We loved this place! The chicken was fantastic and it was so cool to be able to have a safe dessert with our lunch. In such a cute area too.”

@vkotz, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Nobu Los Angeles

Location: Los Angeles, California

“The best food allergy dining experience ever! Nobu’s food is unreal- absolutely perfect…but what was truly amazing was the waiters knowledge of every ingredient in the food! Nuts were a no brainer for them, but when I mentioned mustard, the waiter immediately knew that a few menu items contained mustard. We told him what we wanted, and he was confident nothing that we were considering had any allergens in it. Also, when the food came to the table from another server, they also mentioned that all of our food was free from our list of allergens. The dessert was made fresh and was safe for us. Great experience from start to finish!”

@stephsorkinwho manages tree nut, shrimp, seed, and canola oil 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

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

Rare Society

Location: Solana Beach, California

“Amazing allergy protocols, steak was outstanding and we were even able to get the ice cream cake dessert!”

@jbass12who manages peanut, tree nut, and shellfish allergies

River Belle Terrace

Location: Anaheim, California

“We had dinner reservations and noted our allergy on the reservation. It was confirmed by the hostess and our waiter. We were given an allergen menu. The meal was delivered and confirmed to be the allergen friendly meal. A delicious strawberry sorbet was offered for dessert. Would eat here again.”

@skyarrish, who manages a peanut allergy

Ruth’s Chris Steak House

Location: Palm Desert, California

“I was happy with my experience here as I was able to eat delicious food safely. The waitress was ok in her approach to my food allergies. She wrote down my allergens and advised she checked with the kitchen staff to make sure I was able to eat the items I was planning on ordering. If you eat here, make sure to be adamant that these are ALLERGIES and it’s not just a matter of, “getting sick,” as I did feel as though the waitress was not very educated on allergies in general and possible reactions. However, I appreciated the waitress’ proactiveness and that she went back to the kitchen to make sure I could eat safely. I got the 11oz filet mignon (medium rare) with mashed potatoes. I also was able to get the flourless chocolate sin cake and oh my word…absolutely delicious! FYI, their steaks are not heavily seasoned—they use some salt and pepper and then add real butter. That is what we were told by our waitress.”

@smuldowney, who manages peanut, tree nut, soy, grain, sesame, vegetable, fruit, and legume allergies

State Bird Provisions

Location: San Francisco, California

“Had a fabulous and safe meal here! This is a well-known restaurant in San Francisco 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

True Food Kitchen

Location: Walnut Creek, California

“No peanuts in restaurant and lots of GF options. All GF, We got a kids burger on GF bun, gf Chicken Sausage pizza, Poke Bowl and Lasagna Bolognese. Tons of GF desserts too. Online allergen menu shows CC for most all items but after good reviews and a friend making a reservation we called before and decided there would be safe options. Waiter was educated and happy to check with kitchen. We will be back!”

@cali, who manages celiac and a peanut allergy

The Good Plow

Location: Carpinteria, California

“Now that both kids are back in school, my husband and I enjoyed a lunch date @thegoodplow – I found out that their fryer is dedicated gluten-free! When asking questions about the fried cauliflower tacos, I found out that the corn tortillas are warmed on the same surface as the bread and they do not have a pan that they can warm them in instead. We ended up sharing the Buddha Bowl, Kale Caesar, and Crispy Brussels. My favorite item was the Brussels, which were prepared with a balsamic maple reduction and topped with dates and green onions. I also enjoyed the Buddha Bowl but could have added fried tofu to make it more filling. For dessert, I had soft-serve froyo. The cones are not gluten-free, but it was great in a cup! I did not find out how nut and sesame-free friendly they were since my daughter wasn’t with me. However, they have items with peanuts and tahini on the menu.”

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

The Waterfront Restaurant

Location: San Francisco, California

“We come here every holiday season. Sitting on the patio with the holiday decorations all around and the bay lights in the background can’t be beat for dinner time. During prior visits, my son wasn’t able to have the fried items. But it seems this visit he was able to enjoy. I asked if there was cross contamination in the fryer with nuts or sesame and they said no. They checked his whole order and it was safe. So he had fried calamari, French fries, sautéed broccolini, and pasta with butter and cheese. He also had the mixed seafood grill. He ended with crème brûlée—which was the only safe dessert if I recall correctly. He didn’t order all this to eat on his own. We all shared.”

@jrbruin, who manages peanut, tree nut, sesame and agave 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

Yosemite Ranch

Location: Fresno, California

“They are wonderful. They made sure everything that went into my children’s mouth, including the amazing chocolate cake, was safe for them to eat. Deen has the cheeseburger and fries and Adam has the New York steak!! Both were nut and sesame free!!”

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


Casa Tua

Location: Aspen, Colorado

“Another good experience. Was able to have the bread (made in house) and lemon sorbet for dessert so a win for this meal. Waiter did a good job steering us away from items that may have cross contamination.”

@eem, who manages peanut, tree nut, fish, sesame, and pea allergies

Salt & Lime

Location: Steamboat Springs, Colorado

“I had a bison taco and a fish taco. Both delicious. We had chips and guacamole for apps and churros for dessert. It was super busy, but the waitstaff was still very clear they understood the importance of my allergy.”

@natalie, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

So Radish

Location: Arvada, Colorado

“Vegan eats. My son had an impossible burger and fries. He was also able to have a special dessert. It was a bit on the dry side but safe for dairy and nut allergy.”

@alohabailey, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, and sesame allergies

801 Chophouse

Location: Denver, Colorado

“Very safe for nut and peanut sufferers. Wait staff is incredible and goes above and beyond!! Safe dessert options along with seafood steak, soup and alcoholic beverages.”

@vieve, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Le Penguin

Location: Greenwich, Connecticut

“Steak frites and French fries were a great safe option! Creme caramel was even a safe dessert. Bread is not made in house so that was not an option. Overall atmosphere and food were good too!”

@eem, who manages peanut, tree nut, fish, sesame, and pea allergies


Boma – Flavors of Africa

Location: Orlando, Florida

“Chef Pamela walked us through every food in the buffet safe for kids, and created meals in a safe part of kitchen if we expressed any concern. For desserts, there were none with nuts, but she still created a massive platter of deserts herself. Food was amazing too”

@amalfi2017, who manages peanut, tree nut, and shellfish allergies

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

Chanticleer Eatery

“The staff were wonderful and were able to accommodate for almost every menu item. Desserts were even an option with my tree nut allergy!”

Chef Mickey’s

Location: Orlando, Florida

“This is my go-to brunch character dining in Walt Disney World on Magic Kingdom or Epcot days! Make sure you request to speak to a chef if you have multiple food allergies. They do use Bob Red Mill products for their allergy waffles, but if requested, will use Namaste. Their focaccia bread is also dairy-free and nut-free and is out of this world! The best part though is the allergy-friendly cupcake (top 8 free) that they offer. You have to request them, but they come complete with Enjoy Life chocolate brownie cookie ‘ears’, Mickey sprinkles, and pixie dust.”

@tpgordon, who manages peanut, tree nut, and milk allergies

Chroma Modern Bar + Kitchen

Location: Orlando, Florida

“Chroma is a tapas restaurant in Orlando, only about 20 minutes from Disney World. I had an amazing experience here. The manager came out to speak with me as per protocol (I did not need to request for him to) and safely, confidently made me everything, even dessert! He even checked one of the dessert ingredients with me to be extra safe. I found everyone from the waitresses to the manager to be extremely knowledgeable about cross-contamination. I can’t wait to return here next time we’re in Orlando.”

@samisophia13, who manages tree nut allergies

Citrus Club

Location: Orlando, Florida

“I was here for a work luncheon, and the staff took extra care of me to ensure that I had safe food and dessert! They even brought out a special dessert that was different than everyone else’s. (My colleagues said my dessert looked better than theirs! – They were definitely jealous). My whole meal was peanut-free, and they cook in only vegetable oil. It was such a great experience and one I will never forget.”

Echo Palm Beach

“The manger, Dan, is amazingly accommodating and always helps to ensure that our daughter is safe. She eats like a queen here with her steak, avocado, rice, and homemade safe sorbet for dessert. Couldn’t ask for anything more than a safe, special meal.”

@allergymission, who manages peanut, tree nut, egg, milk, sesame, and shellfish allergies

Emeril’s Coastal Italian

Location: Miramar Beach, Florida

“We dined here several times and had wonderful experiences with delicious and flavorful foods. The staff is knowledgeable about food allergies and communicate directly with the chef to ensure the modifications. They gave my daughter several options of modified menu items but also said they could make her a meal by mixing and matching different items in the menu, since everything is made fresh to order. They also made fresh cotton candy for her for dessert!”

@scl, who manages tree nut, milk, and sesame allergies

Epic Eats

Location: Orlando, Florida

“This is located in Hollywood Studios next to Indiana Jones. They sell funnel cakes and soft serve ice cream. My daughter safely got the cutest dessert: it was a funnel cake topped with soft serve ice cream, an Oreo topping and two Oreos to make it look like Mickey ears. The staff showed my husband the allergy binder, and there were no nuts in anything at the stand. It was absolutely delicious, and my daughter couldn’t believe such an over-the-top dessert was safe for her — she kept asking me if I was SURE it was safe. This was such a moment of Disney magic for my daughter!”

@lattelauren, who manages peanut and tree nut 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, wheat, grain, and legume allergies

Liberty Tree Tavern

Mia’s Italian Kitchen

Location: Orlando, Florida

“I ate there for my 21st birthday and I have no complaints whatsoever. They were able to ensure that my food was not near any peanut products and took every precaution necessary. The food is absolutely delicious, I recommend the cacio de Pepe for an entree, zucchini fries for an appetizer and tiramisu for dessert. The red sangria is one of the best!”

@amandapayo1219, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Millie’s Restaurant & Catering

Location: Daytona Beach, Florida

“We have been to Millie’s many times and always bring guests. The waitress checked with the chef to verify she could have the food she ordered. The chef personally delivered the appetizer and let my daughter know he was aware of the allergies and hoped she wouldn’t worry. That additional kindness and reassurance will be remembered. I wanted my daughter to taste my meal and asked the waitress if it would, too, be safe. She remembered the allergens and checked quickly again. She was even able to share dessert. Lovely, stress-free evening.”

@memachado1who manages tree nut, fish and seed allergies

Surfing Deer

Location: Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

“We were greeted upon arrival and the hostess reconfirmed the allergies I provided when making our reservation. Our waiter asked about the allergies right away and was happy to check with the kitchen. Our two girls (one dairy, one egg+tree nut) were able to have the grilled chicken tenders, fries and fruit. The bread they brought out to start the meal was also safe. There was a vegan (also nut free) dessert we could have gotten but we were too full from our meal. This felt like a special place (fancier but still kid friendly) and we felt well taken care of… we will be back.”

@cbuckley, who manages tree nut, milk, egg, and avocado allergies

The French Brasserie Rustique

Location: Naples, Florida

“This restaurant was unbelievable with food allergies. I’m tree nut free but have started also avoiding gluten. I informed the waitstaff of my allergies and they were on top of all of the ingredients on the menu. They assured me what i ordered was safe and i was able to even order dessert (which I never feel safe doing so!!). The dessert menu listed which items had nuts and when I asked about gluten, the waiter was able to list the items that were made with rice flour instead. HIGHLY recommend!! The food was delicious on top of it all.”

“My family loved Waxins so much that we visited twice in one week! It is almost a nut-free menu (with only one or two pine nut dishes, as far as I can recall) and a completely nut and sesame free dessert menu as well! The waitstaff was very proactive and helpful, and made us feel comfortable. Aside from allergies, the food was absolutely delicious and the general outdoor atmosphere was lovely! Highly recommend to anyone in the area!”

26 Sushi & Tapas

Location: Surfside, Florida

“Amazing experience!! Our waiter, Melfin, was the best! Extremely knowledgeable and accommodating to our needs. There is no shellfish in house. My daughter lives sushi but is allergic to sesame seeds. They prepped her sushi separately. Some of our entrees we topped with sesame seeds and or nuts, he made sure to tell the chef not to add them just in case our kids wanted to taste our food. The food was delicious. The desserts were even better! All nut free!”

50’s Prime Time Café

Location: Kissimmee, Florida

“This is by far one of my favorite restaurants on Disney’s property. It’s very rare that I’m able to get fried chicken as most are fried in buttermilk. Highly recommend the allergen friendly brownie for dessert!”

@tpgordon, who manages peanut, tree nut, and milk allergies


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 (thanks Schar!) 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.”

Peace Love and Pizza – Towne Lake

Location: Woodstock, Georgia

“I heard about Peace Love and Pizza from a friend and have been going back multiple times a week! Their pizza is yummy, and they have great dessert pizza that CLEARLY outlines the ingredients, which is extremely helpful for allergy sufferers! I definitely recommend this restaurant. They even cater to gluten-free customers as well as vegetarians!”

Lava Lava Beach Club

Location: Waikoloa Village, Hawaii

“This restaurant is such a gem. It’s located on the beach and the views are gorgeous. We love that this restaurant is about a 10 min walk from the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort (which is the hotel we stay at during our stay in Hawaii). The walk to this restaurant is always beautiful and enjoyable. This restaurant is our go-to dessert place. We always order the yummy and refreshing sorbet for my daughter. Even though safe food options are limited at this restaurant we still enjoyed dining here because of the experience. The view is amazing and my littles ones would enjoy the beach while waiting for our dessert to come out since this restaurant allows you to wear your swimsuit. It’s a must to check out this restaurant.”

Roy’s Ko Olina

Location: Kapolei, Hawaii

“I mentioned our allergies when booking our reservation and the waitress was prepared for us when we arrived. We had two children and one adult with food allergies (milk) (egg+tree nut) (shellfish) in our party of 9. Our waitress immediately started writing out a list of appropriate appetizers and entrees for the kids to choose from and she knew exactly which dishes could be adjusted to be safe. They prepared everything we asked for, the way we asked for it and they were extremely cautious and communicative. Bonus points for a vegan dessert option which my daughter loved! Top notch service and delicious food, this restaurant is nice for a special occasion but still very family friendly.”

Andros Taverna

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Wow!! We had wanted to go her for a while and it was hard to get a reservation but we came on a Sunday and OMG it lived up to the hype! We were celebrating our daughter’s college decision and ordered like half the menu. First it’s 100% peanut free and second there are some tree nuts but mainly I saw pistachios (which my daughter is VERY allergic to) but our server was very confident and nice and said they have customers with food allergies all the time. Our server brought us dessert because we were celebrating which always makes me panic but it was perfect, a frozen Greek yogurt with honey- I saw someone else eating something similar that looked like it had something crunchy on it so if it was nuts, very impressed and appreciative we didn’t get with nuts. HIGHLY recommend and can’t wait to go back and sit outside.”

“Amazing experience at Cindy’s Rooftop! Their standard menu is labeled for nut free, gluten free, and vegan dining options. Our waiter used a paper menu to clearly label what was and wasn’t safe for my allergies. Safely enjoyed cocktails + chocolate chip cookies and banana pudding for dessert! Amazing views, incredible ambiance. Want to come back for brunch!”

Chicago Diner

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Mostly tree nut free kitchen. The staff were very well educated on the menu and allergens. Additionally, there is a comprehensive book they refer to in order to verify ingredients. My daughter safely enjoyed not only her meal but also a milk shake and dessert which is usually not safe outside the house. One of the best experiences yet!”

Coda di Volpe

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Very impressed! We ordered here for the first time for pickup and loved that we could talk to someone live. They were so knowledgeable and even asked if my daughter was allergic to all tree nuts! They were able to tell me if anything we wanted had nuts and made sure the “no nuts” would apply to the entire order. I heard the chef has a wife with Celiac and he created gluten-free focaccia which I never heard of!! They use that to make gluten-free pizza on the focaccia and it was amazing! We also had a salad, grilled broccoli and butterscotch pudding for dessert. I could also see the words tree nut allergy on the receipt next to each item. Everything was great and they have a super cute outside right off a great shopping street in Chicago! Definitely recommend!”

DeSalvo’s Pizza

Location: Evanston, Illinois

“Native New Yorker here and this is our favorite tasting pizza on the North Shore. Dairy and Egg free crust— they happily made my daughter a red pizza (no cheese) and it was delicious. Limited tree nuts on the menu but they made note of all our allergies and the staff was so nice and patient and answered all of our questions. The absolute best part is they have an Oatly machine! My girls were able to have soft serve cones for the first time. Safe dinner and dessert in one spot is so rare for our family— such a win. There is also a park/playground for littles right next door (with picnic tables) if you want to eat outside!”

Le Colonial Chicago

“Wow. I’m blown away at our experience at this restaurant. We made a reservation for my husband’s birthday and while my daughter was home from college and I forgot that when we ate here (it was their original location) that our daughter wasn’t with us. I checked the menu online and saw a number of dishes with peanuts. I called ahead to ask if they could accommodate a nut allergy and they immediately said yes and ever shared several ways the isolate preparation of nuts. The menu in the restaurant did have a big N for any dishes with nuts which I rarely see and our server was fantastic! We ordered several small and large plates. We also had dessert including crème brûlée and chocolate cake (which had almonds but my daughter isn’t allergic to).”

“We had an amazing meal here on Christmas Eve! Our first time at this location and with our food allergic daughter. They were incredibly educated and helpful. The food was truly phenomenal and they had a DJ with really great music – great vibe. The food is family style and we ordered a lot including: the oyster trio, crispy rice with spicy tuna, baby artichoke salad, black cod butter lettuce, eggplant with spicy miso, Nobu tacos (lobster, crab, ribeye + wagyu, salmon + avocado roll, wagyu dumpling, rock shrimp tempura and we also had for dessert the bento box (a chocolate molten cake with matcha ice cream) and mochi (their flavors change). My daughter had a spicy lemonade too. Definitely a special occasion spot. The service level is very high and based on having eaten at a few Nobu restaurants I would absolutely seek it out in other cities!”

“The Gallery updates the menu every few weeks to reflect the art showcased. Before arriving for dinner, I spoke to the restaurant and they checked with the chef directly to let us know which items were safe for our daughter. They even put aside a piece of fish especially for her not in the marinade that was prepared with sesame. The staff were all aware of her allergies and she felt safe the entire evening. Bonus—she almost always skips dessert to err on the side of caution but they assured us there were a couple safe items and she picked the chocolate rosemary pot de créme which she loved.”

Wildfire Glenview

Location: Glenview, Illinois

“I feel incredibly safe eating here! They make many of their desserts in house (and understand how to avoid cross-contamination), so I have been able to safely eat their triple layer fudge chocolate cake for years! The kitchen is trained on proper preparation to avoid cross contamination. The wait staff is very thorough and will review every ingredient in your order (including sauces and dressings) and check with the kitchen. For example, I am allergic to beans, and before placing the order they almost always come back to my table to confirm and clarify that I can have soybeans (confirm it is soy and not a bean)—the waitstaff is not afraid to ask clarifying questions regarding allergies which always make me feel more comfortable, knowing how thorough and careful they are being!”

“After using MyTealTicket, the manager came over, and showed me all their protocols. He introduced me to their own allergy tickets, which were bright yellow. I then got a kitchen tour, where he explained that all staff members are thoroughly educated about food allergies. They use separate platforms for allergies, and even have nut-free desserts! I highly recommend 3 Arts Café!”

“When we inform the waitstaff and orders are taken, a manager comes to the table to inform us that gloves are changed frequently and that they are aware of our allergies. If ordering dessert, they will open new toppings in a clean area to minimize cross-contamination. And they will sing for a birthday even, if it’s only a bowl of whipped cream or just strawberry topping! It made me so happy to have my kids get to partake in a birthday tradition.”

“While they aren’t certified allergen free, I have eaten here many times and they even make their desserts in house so I’ve had desserts off the menu! I am PN only and I’ve never heard of them using peanuts, the chef and staff are very transparent and up front about ingredients. The food is delicious & upscale, we’ve had our wedding rehearsal dinner here and anniversaries and birthdays here. I always email with them before going and they’re lovely to work with!”

“I had THE most amazing experience here tonight. Initially I felt a little stressed out by the menu because it lists each dish with very little detail. However, our waiter came right over and after asking if we wanted sparkling or still asked if there were any allergies at the table. I gave him my allergies and he came back a few minutes later after talking with the chefs and basically went through each menu option and told me how they could make it safe for me. I got the Branzino and we got the grilled mushrooms, rosemary potatoes and the garlic broccoli for the table. Everything I had was delicious. Best part? They had an AMAZING strawberry sorbet for dessert- dairy free desserts are hard to come by. I’d go back to contessa in a heart beat and am already planning my trip to their Miami location in March!!”

“This is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. They are incredible with allergies and can modify most dishes to accommodate your dietary restrictions. My typical go to is the wedge salad, bone in filet, roasted potatoes, and sautéed onions. For dessert, I usually get their house made raspberry sorbet. This is a great spot for date night or an anniversary!”

Alcona Brew Haus

“This is a gem of a restaurant. The waitstaff was helpful and the owner came out to share her own story as a parent of a food allergic child. They do not have nuts or sesame at the restaurant and have a clear allergen protocol that features purple plates and utensils to offer added focus. While we didn’t try it, they have ability to make vegan pizza, too and based on the care they put in to our meal today, I’d feel safe trying it. They even had desserts from Sweet Annie Mae’s cafe – and others- that were safe for us. I only wish we lived closer!”

The Melting Pot

“I was able to eat all three courses here! The bread and veggies are safe in the cheese course, and the meat course was all fine too. For the dessert course, they brought out a plate with waffles, rice crispy treats, marshmallows, strawberries and bananas which were all safe for me. The rest of my family had all of those items, plus brownies, bloodies, and pound cake, plus they had a spoon so the chocolate wasn’t contaminated. The menu is clearly labeled for gluten free items too! Overall a great experience!”

She even told us which desserts had a cross-contamination facility for the dessert they bought! She wrote down our allergens, made sure the kitchen staff knew, and overall, just checked everything for us to make sure. I felt so heard and taken care of. Would 100% return.”

“The whole menu is labeled with items that are vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free (or things that can be made that way) and my waitress was incredibly helpful. I ordered a vegan pizza and mentioned my nut allergy and she came back to ask if coconut in the vegan sausage was okay or if she should leave it off. For dessert we had the maple glazed cinnamon knots which were vegan.”

We came here trying to get gluten-free, dairy-free donuts for a brunch graduation party. My son loved the cinnamon donuts. We also loved the biscuits and gravy. This is a hidden gem in the Arts District of Columbia. Most items here do contain coconut, flax. The owner went above and beyond trying to help us with substitutions. Highly recommend this spot.”

When it came time for dessert, I believe the churros we ordered came with Nutella and Dulce de Leche sauces on the side but we asked for just the Dulce de Leche and got them to go. They were so good! I’d recommend the chips and salsa and the churros! I’d go back just for those alone.”

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.”

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.”

The waitstaff is extremely proactive. They wrote down my allergies for me and checked with the kitchen as soon as we placed our order.

“One of my fav NYC spots!!! Great food great vibe! Amazing with allergies. Burger buns have sesame sadly but lots of other safe foods (I usually share steak frites and shrimp cocktail mac and cheese) Always feel super safe eating here, even though they use sesame burger buns!!! They also make all their desserts in house and told me they don’t use nuts for their dessert! I was able to enjoy a vanilla ice cream puff with chocolate sauce.”

Location: Scarsdale, New York

“Popojito is an excellent Med-Mex restaurant with such delicious food, and everything is gluten-free! Even the deserts! Trust me, I triple checked because the strawberry swirl cheesecake felt too good to be true! Definitely a must try if you are in the area and are looking for something knew to try! Staff was extremely helpful and educated!”

Rangoon – Chelsea

Location: New York, New York

“Great Burmese food that is safe for many allergies. Only nuts are peanuts in a salad, which is nice, and the menu is marked with gluten-free and dairy-free options. No dedicated fryer though, so onion fritters are not safe. Dessert options are also safe, which is rare.”

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

Senza Gluten

Location: New York, New York

“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 is so delicious. I didn’t have any trouble with nuts, but I had to avoid some of the desserts.”

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

Small Batch

Location: Garden City, New York

“The waitress was very serious about making sure there wasn’t any cross-contamination or tree nuts in my meal. I got the Small Batch Smash Burger which was good, and for dessert, we had the special, which was mini French Madeleines. I felt very safe here.”

Sushi Lab Rooftop

Location: New York, New York

“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 house made 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.”

We tried the BBQ nachos, smash burger, and pineapple upside down cake, and everything was superb! The entire restaurant is 100% vegan and peanut-free, so we were able to enjoy our meal without any worries! Definitely recommend making a reservation if you ever happen to be in the area!”

“Nice restaurant with very nice staffs, they do have options but some were no go because of the shared fryer. The food is more on the fancy side, and my kids did have options, but they say it’s just okay. Surprised that they offer a safe dessert of crème brûlée. It is made with coconut. I love it, but my kids don’t like the taste.”

Stable Cafe

Location: Asheville, North Carolina

“We were SO pleasantly surprised by our experience at the Stable Cafe after our tour of the Biltmore. After notifying the staff of my allergy, they did a wonderful job accommodating!! I had a plain hamburger cooked on a clean area of the grill with onions, lettuce, pickles, and chips on the side!! They did have Udi’s gluten-free buns on hand and our server was so kind to bring out the ingredients, but I went without due to the buns containing egg. I also had a wonderful dairy/nut-free vegan sorbet for dessert! The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was as well! Our dining experiences made for a great end to a great day at the Biltmore!!”

“1887 Bistro has a great variety of small plates, lunch, and dinner options on campus. I personally enjoy the ceasar salad and arugula margherita flatbread. The chocolate chunk cookie sundae is a great late-night dessert! I recommend viewing the online menu, as each menu item is labeled with containing allergens.”

White Oaks Restaurant

Location: Westlake, Ohio

“It was such a great experience eating here! Before I even ordered, I talked to the waitress, and she told me to narrow my choices down to a couple so she could check with the kitchen. She told me the options I chose should be okay and then she came back and let me know both would be fine with no cross-contamination risk! I ended up getting the atlantic salmon that was on some rice and some veggies on the side. It was super yummy! I was even able to have dessert too! I went simple and got a sundae with vanilla ice cream and butterscotch drizzled on top with whipped cream. Such a good experience here! I felt very reassured and safe eating 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.”

@cstrickland, who manages celiac and tree nut, milk, and egg allergies

Sugarpine Drive-In

Location: Troutdale, Oregon

“Great spot for sandwiches and soft serve sundaes! I always get the waffle grilled cheese with tomato soup and a soft serve for dessert. Although not a nut-free kitchen, nuts are kept separately in a designated area. Each ice cream topping has their own serving utensil to avoid any cross-contamination. When preparing soft serve for someone with allergies, they use gloves and designated allergy prep areas.”

@hmweinstein, who manages a peanut allergy

Zach’s Bistro

Location: Newport, Oregon

“Plan your Oregon coast trip around a reservation at Zach’s Bistro. The chef plans out the menu himself each week, and is explicitly welcoming of dietary needs. The food was delicious. We especially enjoyed the lamb riblets with a ginger turmeric honey soy glaze. We also had the crab cake and the lamb hash. The prickly pear sorbet for dessert was soft, sweet, and a toddler favorite. The chef even proactively obtained bread from a top 9-free bakery so we could enjoy a bite while waiting for our first course. We visited this restaurant with our food-allergic toddler, with restrictions on dairy, egg, peanut, sesame, coconut, cashew, and pistachio at the time of our visit.”

Mandy’s Pizza

Location: Pittsburg, Pennsylvania

“The owner is very knowledgeable about cross-contamination. We actually did not eat there, due to timing, but did pick up dessert. They carry Brandon’s Best, which is free of the top 8 allergens. The cookies, donuts, and brownies were all delicious.”

@tgaudiosi, who manages a tree nut allergies


Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

“Ate at Parc for the first time this weekend, and they were great with my allergies. I called in advance and they, without my prompting, mentioned their protocol for cross-contamination in the kitchen (separate pans), the oil the use to fry (I think it is canola, definitely not peanut oil), and how they would advise me to stay away from the bread basket because it includes a walnut bread. I felt super comfortable eating there, and they were even able to serve creme brûlée as a dessert for my birthday! Definitely going back.”

“Amazing attention to my son’s allergies. I noted his allergies when I booked, which the host proactively confirmed upon arrival. When seated, a manager handed our server with a post-it note with his allergens on it. Our server even brought up cross-contamination in the fryer, which our guy is okay with. He enjoyed fries and steak and even dessert (sorbet)!!”

“Definitely a hidden gem! This cute neighborhood restaurant has incredible food, a unique menu, and delicious dessert. Best of all, my egg, soy and nut-free toddler could eat the pizza and have a scoop of ice cream for dessert. And did you know, every kids meal comes with a cookie or scoop of cream?! Can’t get much better than that! Plus, I love any place that has roasted brussels sprouts on pizza. We will be back!”

Celestial Cafe

Flatbread Company

Location: Providence, Rhode Island

“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!”

Cinnamon Bear Country Store

Ombra Cucina Italiana

“I was able to have penne pasta here! I had it with mariana sauce, sausage, and arugula. I was so so happy to find a restaurant that had gluten-free pasta that was also egg-free. The owner has celiac and I think a son with a peanut allergy. I even had a safe dessert —peach sorbet INSIDE a peach. I hadn’t even researched desserts, so I was really surprised!”

“Super cool vegan restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee! Everything from dinner to dessert was great! Since it is a vegan restaurant, my dairy and egg allergies were not a concern and neither was my peanut allergy. They were helpful when we asked about the peanuts and ensured my order was safe. I believe the menu has changed a bit since I’ve been, but I had a spaghetti dish that was wonderful with pie and ice cream for dessert! Super tasty!”

“Eating at Mangia is a gluten-free and nut-free experience! They currently only offer food on the weekends for their Weekend Feast (10-course dinner). Everything on the menu can be made gluten-free, and I mean everything! The focaccia, the risotto cakes, the pasta, and even the zeppole (Italian donuts!). There are no nuts on the menu, and the staff is fantastic, mentioning that something doesn’t have gluten or just as they set down the food. This is something you have to experience if you are gluten-free and nut-free!”

This vegan restaurant had some AWESOME menu items and great service! They have lots of gluten-free and soy-free options as well, and a note at the bottom of the menu encourages you to talk to your server about any allergies, as they are able to accommodate. I got some nachos to share and a sandwich (both of which were great!) and a piece of cheesecake for dessert! Such a cool restaurant! I’d definitely go again!!”

Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ

Location: Arlington, Virginia

“This is one of my favorite restaurants! I love the food they serve, and the feeling of being able to control how your food is cooked. For those who don’t know, Guy-Kaku is a yakiniku (roughly translated as ‘cooked meat’) Japanese restaurant that serves you marinated raw meat and vegetables which you cook yourself on a grill that is built into the table. It is surprisingly easy to cook the food, and it’s so delicious! We always get the yakishabu, as well as the fried pork gyoza (dumplings), fried bacon pieces, spicy addicting cucumber (for those who can tolerate spice) and edamame. They also have amazing garlic fried rice. If we’re ever hungry enough to eat dessert (which we almost never are, the food is so good I never want to stop eating it), the mochi ice cream is amazing, particularly the passion fruit flavor. For the allergy side of things, you always know what you’re getting and there’s no surprises. I’m not entirely sure if they fry in peanut oil (as I’m not allergic to that), but I’ve never had a problem with any of their food.”

Hardly any nuts on the menu and excellent food! We had hush puppies, calamari, crab soup, lobster roll with fries, surf and turf with loaded mash potatoes and asparagus, key lime pie, chocolate cake, and Italian crème lemon cake with raspberry syrup. It was delicious!”

Ghostfish Brewing Company

Location: Seattle, Washington

“100% gluten-free brewery and restaurant in the Seattle industrial district! I went in not knowing anything about nuts, but was super happy to find out they only had one nut in the kitchen – cashew cream that goes on the vegan tacos and is completely separate in the kitchen! I sampled some of their gluten-free beer (loved the cranberry one!) and also split their fish and chips and bacon mac and cheese with my boyfriend! The fried fish is amazing here! They have a wide variety of lunch and dinner options, including tacos, burgers, appetizers, and fried food, and everything looked delicious! All of their desserts are also nut-free! You have to try the gluten-free churros!”

“Awesome tapas restaurant! I messaged them on social media and they connected with the chef who was on top of it saying there are no peanuts/peanut oil on site. They mentioned that they do have walnuts/almonds that may have cross-contact with peanuts at processing facilities, but that’s it. Very aware and knowledgeable! When we arrived they asked if anyone had allergies and talked directly to me to make sure nothing they brought contained my allergens (nuts/other legumes). Food was amazing and can’t wait to go back! Safely had the churros too (no chocolate) and typically never am able to have dessert!”

“Omg SOOOO GOOD!! Came to DC with my daughter and made a beeline to this Spokin Verified Restaurant! The restaurant is nut-free (I think they have coconut) so she could eat ANYTHING in the menu. It was such an amazing feeling – and we did basically try everything haha we had a bunch of tacos: sweet potato, mushroom, kale potato, black bean + egg and a mushroom quesadilla (my fave!!) My daughter had kombucha. And we had an absurdly good cinnamon cookie for dessert – I made my daughter go back and buy more, we could no longer share haha. If this restaurant was in Chicago our hometown, I would eat there every week – we loved it!! And the vibe is so airy, it felt like we were in Cali. We need a Spokin party there!!!”

Le Diplomate

“We had a fantastic meal here! I had heard about it so many times that I was afraid it would be too touristy but it was perfect on all accounts and I would highly recommend. It feels very much like a French bistro and the energy is so fun. We never saw peanuts on the menu and only a few tree nuts. We came here the night before we dropped my daughter off at college so ordered a lot – they were very helpful with making sure there were not nuts in what we ordered. I felt they were appropriately cautious. There is a big stand right when you walk in with loaves of bread being sliced for the bread baskets that they bring to the table and one kind did contain walnuts. My daughter is no longer allergic to walnuts, but we asked for ours without. For appetizers we ordered shrimp, oysters and a mushroom tart. My daughter and I split steak frites. For dessert, we had vanilla crème brûlée and chocolate pot de crème which had some small chocolate candy balls that they put on the side just in case we weren’t comfortable. Overall such a fun night and highly recommend.”

We found out that the owner also manages food allergies, which is always so comforting, and the staff not only asked us if anyone had food allergies but was also very educated on all items on the menu. There are no peanuts on the menu or peanut oil. We had a whipped ricotta appetizer on bread that we are still taking about, risotto balls that they are famous for, and my daughter and I split the spaghetti with yellow tomatoes (so good) and the off-menu Cacio e pepe. We were also celebrating a birthday, and they brought us an off-menu cookie and creme mini cake that was made in house and nut-free! Loved this cozy spot!”

This cafe is known to create allergy-friendly food and has the aim of creating a place where everyone can come together to enjoy eating delicious food, so of course I had to try! All of the food was delicious, and I felt so safe eating out here. Knowing the menu was dairy-free, egg-free, seafood-free, and mostly nut-free was so reassuring. The staff were so knowledgeable about allergies and also extremely kind and helpful with all of my questions. I have never had an iced donut before, so this was definitely a stand-out for me.

I ended up ordering a vegetable soup (gluten-free!), and we split 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!”

There was absolutely no issue, and a note was made in the reservation about my food allergies. On arrival at the restaurant, the hostess mentioned my allergies prior to seating us. I mentioned my peanut and tree nut allergies to the waiter. He was already aware. I ordered pan seared steelhead salmon with roasted fingerling potatoes, ratatouille, and chimichurri. The meal was absolutely delicious! I was even able to order dessert! I haven’t had dessert in a restaurant in years. The Crème Brûlée was wonderful!

The staff made sure to bring out alternatives for me that were extremely similar to the original dish itself! It was such a good, filling meal!”

Le Consulat Restaurant

Location: Paris, France

“French fries are fried in sunflower oil. Waitstaff were attentive to our cross-contamination concerns, limited nuts on menu. My tree nut allergic daughter ate the steak for kids (hamburger patty) and fries and enjoyed a creme brûlée for dessert (made on premise).”

Le Montebello

Location: Paris, France

“I have a severe allergy to peanuts and tree nuts, and this place was excellent in assuring me they did not use nuts in any of the dishes I ordered. I even got to try escargot and nut-free pesto pasta, as well as dessert. They were very helpful and reassured me and my worries.”

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.“

Migomis Piano Restaurant

Location: Agios Nikolaos, Greece

“Stunning restaurant in Crete has an unbelievable views and sits above a square of restaurants and stores that surround a lake – hard to describe but it’s so picturesque! It’s definitely on the fancy side as far as the menu goes, but it felt very special. My daughter had bread for start and then a burrata appetizer that came with almond skin but we asked for without, I don’t know why since my daughter isn’t allergic to almonds haha and tagliatelle with a beef ragu. She also had crème brûlée for dessert. Highly recommend!”

“We had lunch at this lovely restaurant located at the Amirandes hotel we were staying at. The waitress was VERY helpful and took the allergies very seriously. 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.”

Location: Mumbai, India

“Excellent Indian food. Our server was very helpful and made appetizers from scratch to ensure they were peanut and tree nut-free. We ordered the chicken tikka, hara bara kabab, potato and tomato curry with Jeera rice and butter naan for my son. He was also able to eat malai kulfi for dessert which, was delicious and nut-free! Will definitely visit again!”

“I am an adult with a tree nut and sesame allergy. This was hands down the best meal I’ve had in Ireland. The waitstaff took time to listen to me, double checked everything, and made an allergen-free dessert.”

StockHouse Restaurant

Location: Trim, Ireland

“This restaurant has a large menu and the staff was well aware of cross-contamination risks and said they don’t have any nuts to worry about. The kids got a burger and pasta and even had a brownie with ice cream for dessert. Def some cross-contamination risk, but that’s okay for us. I was pleased with how allergy aware the staff was.”

Antico Martini

Location: Venezia, Italy

“We stumbled upon this place trying to go to another allergy-friendly restaurant. We came through the back door thinking it was closed. Thinking we were at that other restaurant, we gave our allergy cards to a server, and they said they could accommodate my son’s food allergies. We say down and then realized that we were not where we thought we were going to be. Turns out the two restaurants are next door to each other and share hallways. My son and I shared a plate of veggies, steak with black truffles, and a side of rice. The staff assured me everything would be safe for him. It was delicious! Then the kicker was that the desserts were safe for my son! We had been in Europe the last two weeks and desserts and been mostly a miss for him. The server walked through the dessert menu with my son and showed him what he could or could not order. My son ordered a fruit tart and was so happy!”

BBQ Chianina station Montepulciano

Location: Montepulciano, Italy

“Food was amazing. The ribs are fall off the bone tender. The oil they use is sunflower seed oil. Staff was nice and told me there are no nuts in the place. Dessert was even safe. The menu is online, and I did not see any allergen warnings. They speak decent English as well.”

Hotel Da Giorgio

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!”

Klass Restaurant

Location: Rome, Italy

“Came for my birthday dinner and had the prosciutto and burrata appetizer (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!”

La Buchetta Food & Wine Restaurant

Location: Florence, Italy

“We got this reservation last minute, and it was AMAZING. We did not expect to love it the way we did!! The waiters are amazing and spoke perfect English. They knew every ingredient in every dish and take great caution with allergies. When our waiter wasn’t positive, he would always ask the chef and come back to discuss with us. The angels and demon gnocchi and cheese wheel pasta are a MUST. If you love cheese, this is the place for you! Our waiter told us that on the cheesecake there was a biscoff cookie, and even though it didn’t say may contain nuts, he didn’t feel comfortable serving me something that wasn’t made in house. Instead, we got the apple pie and it was amazing! Such an amazing spot, and I highly recommend!!”

La Giostra

Location: Florence, Italy

“I went here almost once a week when I lived in Florence. At the time, I only managed a peanut, tree nut, and coconut allergy, but they were awesome. They even made a special appetizer plate for me, since the one they usually send out had nuts. Highly recommend the burrata and osso bucco. The chocolate cake was also safe, although was very fruity tasting.”

@tpgordon, who manages peanut, tree nut, and milk allergies

Le Botteghe Di Donatello Firenze

Location: Firenze, Italy

“This restaurant is right next to the Duomo and was one of our favorite meals in Florence during our whole trip! They are AIC-certified (gluten-free), and every dish is marked for allergens. There were no peanuts listed on the menu, and this was confirmed by the owner/chef (who was so nice!) The waiters were also very knowledgeable about food allergies and 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 and 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 and créme caramel (both no nuts and listed on the gluten-free menu). I had no allergy issues and loved our meal! Definitely recommend for gluten & nut allergies in Florence!”

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 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 dairy and/or nut-free!”

Pico’s Taqueria & American Grill

Location: Rome, Italy

“I have been here twice now and the first time was a 10/10 experience. Everything very well labeled and nothing containing peanuts. Told the waiter anyways, and he said he would check with the kitchen. Came back and said I would be totally safe, even had the churros for dessert, which was a treat! AMAZING tacos. Kind of on the pricier side but very good food and drinks!”

Pizza e Cucina da Linda

Location: Montepulciano, Italy

“Great food and great service. The menu had an allergy list and listed the numbers next to items that have or may contain the allergen that related to the number. Menu was in both Italian and English. Staff spoke English fairly well and understood my allergy. Relayed the message to the chefs. Had a margarita pizza then when he offered dessert, he told me the tiramisu would be safe, but the cheesecake had cross-contamination. Enjoyed my experience here and will be back again.”

@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 a 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!!”

Yakuza by Olivier, Algarve

Location: Albufeira, Portugal

“This restaurant was one my favorites in all the places I visited in Portugal. The food was delicious, and the staff was very attentive in our allergies. We kept double checking because sushi does have a lot of seafood, nuts, and cross-contamination, so we had to be extra cautious. All of the rolls we ordered were nut-free, and they made sure of it. The only thing was that the dessert we ordered had nuts on the side when we specified to take the nuts out. Just be sure to always check the dish before eating. Overall, great food and helpful staff.”

“If you are ever in Puerto Rico and want a fancy restaurant, go here! It’s a five-course menu, and I was nervous at first, but the waitstaff and chef were sooo accommodating. They made me a new dessert and modified so many of my dishes to fit my allergies. Also, the chef came out at the end and was so kind! HIGHLY recommend for a special occasion.”

Fu Hua Soya Bean

Location: Singapore

“This is a hawker center stall in Singapore that serves desserts made from soft soya bean curd (aka tofu!). It’s something I always like to have when I’m in Singapore because I can’t really find it anywhere else. I always order the set with sweet red bean, taro, mochi-like balls, tapioca pearls, and attap seeds. It’s topped with soy milk and a sweet syrup. Sometimes, I have this for breakfast too! It’s naturally vegan, gluten-free, and nut-free. There is a designated spoon for each topping, so I wasn’t too worried about cross-contamination.”

The Food Place by Food Junction

Location: Singapore, Singapore

“My family loves to get dessert in this food court in Raffles City because the window seats have a great view of Raffles Hotel and some other famous spots! Ice kacang is our favorite one to get—just without the sweet corn (contains dairy). Most of the Singaporean desserts like ice kacang, cendol, pulut hitam, etc. are gluten-free, nut-free, and vegan (only thing that wouldn’t be is the sweet corn topping on cendol and ice kacang). I definitely recommend trying some of the local treats!”

Côte Brasserie – Cambridge

Location: Cambridge, England, United Kingdom

“I love cote! Been going since I was 17! They are always so attentive. I talk to the manager every time, they run through everything. The menu is all the food I love. Some dishes contain or may contain my allergens but they know their ingredients and the chefs take care. My meals come out first and I have a starter, main and dessert. (Sometimes two mains and bread). Every time I go here I feel safe and taken care of, plus the food is incredible, which choices!”

Dishoom Covent Garden

Location: London, England, United Kingdom

“While you wait to be seated masala chia is served which was really nice on a cold spring day in London. Very allergy friendly restaurant. The staff can customize dishes based on your needs. We started with the Murg tikka, house chaat and Dishoom chicken tikka. I believe they altered the recipe for my kids for the Murg tikka, since it can get a little spicy. For our main course, we ordered naan with chicken ruby and Maatar paneer. My son also had some basmati rice. For dessert, they enjoyed the kulfi. Would definitely go back again.”

Ego Mediterranean Restaurant & Bar, Stockton Heath

Location: Stockton Heath, Warrington, United Kingdom

“Detailed allergen matrix online, and the ability to add allergies to the online booking system. Informed waitstaff on arrival, who made the kitchen staff aware of the allergy on the order. There were also a few desserts that we could have! We both had the crème brûlée. It was lovely!”
