    Dears, lucky you if what you write is real! Honestly, I’m Italian and Italy is the worst place in the world to have CD because of our food is completely based on gluten.
    I think you was the right person the right moment in the right place! I meant, if you are a “normal tourist” walking in an italian city, trust me, you can die before eat something good without any problem. Have you ever try to eat something in a bar???Pizza, pizzelle, panini, rustici, souppli….what else?? The only reason for which Italy is one step forward are tickets for food to people with diagnosis (for women rougly 100euro/month) but you know why???….gf bread in Italy costs around 16 euro/Kg!!!So there is something of mafia even in gluten free affair and that’s it: il bel paese!

      Hi Marianna!

      I understand your frustration, but I don’t think you read all of my blog posts. 🙂

      It sounds like you would really enjoy reading The Gluten-Free Guide to Italy…it may list restaurants in your town. Where do you live?

      Also, in the blog post The Agony & The Ecstasy I wrote about how hard it was for me to eat gluten-free with my additional food allergies to corn and dairy. It seems all of the gf food there has corn!

      Anyhoo…read some more and I think you may be pleasantly surprised.

      Excellent restaurant in Firenze:

      Call in advance for a freshly made pizza base – expect a GF surcharge as is the case with many restaurants in Europe. They even do a GF garlic bread which was pretty tasty.

      All the best,

    Dear all, the best thingh is that Italy, is the place of the world where the celiach desease is well known. In every resstaraunt you can tell them that you need a gluten free product and they understand what it is. The celiachia (italian name for celiach desease) is known. And in the restaurant they ever try to prepare you something gf. This not happens in all the other european country, many times they dindn’t understand what you mean. So if you want to be sur, the magic words are: io ho la celiachia. They will understand or maybe they will tell you that can’t assure a gf dish.
