Here's a photo of my first meal in Italy. I used the information below to communicate with the waiter and it worked! I have no idea what this was, some sort of beef in an amazingly delicious red sauce with capers. I also can't really tell you the name of the restaurant or the exact location due the fact that I was sleep deprived and had jet lag at the time.
Below is the Italian restaurant card I created that explains my gluten, corn, and dairy allergies. I know there are a few of you out there with the same food issues. Hope this helps!
Ho un’allergia a:
Glutine (frumento, nella segale, e nell’orzo neppure)
Soffro di un disturbo chiamato celiachia.
Per favore niente molliche di pane (bread crumbs), burro (butter), amido di granturco (corn starch). Nessun piatto con farina di frumento nella/nel: pastella (batter), brodo(bouillon), insaporitore per carne/pesce (meat/fish dusting), salsa (sauce).
Potrebbe consigliarmi dei piatti del menu adatti nonostante le mie allergies?
Grazie per la cortesia!
