We dined at this restaurant in the northern part of the city on the first night we arrived. We were jet-lagged and had been walking all over the city visiting the Piazza di Spagna, Spanish Steps, and Trevi Fountain. But we decided to walk uphill via the Via Veneto to this restaurant, which is located east of the Borghese Gardens. We arrived a bit early, but they weren't open yet. I had made 7 pm reservations, and it was about 6:45. There wasn't really anywhere else to go while we waited, but soon after 7 pm, they seated us. We were initially only one of two tables of people seated in the small restaurant. Italians eat later than us Americans, so the restaurant got busier as the evening got later. This restaurant has been AiC certified (certified by the Italian Celiac Association) for many years, and anything on the menu can be made gluten free ( http://www.ristoranteilviaggio.it/en/menu.html ). In fact, everything already is gluten free, except you have the option to order regular pasta or bread. We started with homemade gluten free bread (and regular bread for those at the table that aren't gluten free). Both were very good, and we asked for olive oil to dip it in. Soon after, we were surprised with an absolutely heavenly tasting creamy carrot and onion based soup, served in small glass mugs. It was divine. When I commented to our lovely server about how good it was, she offered to bring us more. We declined, as we figured we'd better pace ourselves with the food intake! We felt very comfortable and safe eating here. Items ordered included the fettuccine with mushrooms and bacon (half portions are available, which makes a great appetizer), saffron risotto with bits of braised veal, lemon pasta with shrimp (small pieces cut up and mixed in with the pasta), spaghetti with clam sauce, and sliced beef with three sauces (on the side, so you could choose). Everything was delicious. Dessert was fantastic, too. Our boys both ordered the three chocolate semifreddo, my husband ordered the apple crumble with custard, and I thoroughly enjoyed my tiramisu (softer than most and served in a bowl). I'd highly recommend this restaurant. It's a bit off the beaten path for tourists but well worth a quick taxi ride (or good walk if you want to burn off all the calories you'll be eating!). I just noticed the restaurant offers gluten free cooking classes as well!

Best glutenfree restaurant ever -- Rome, Italy,

After two years I came back to my beloved city: Rome. And guess what? My family brought me to taste this fabulous gluten free restaurant near "The Spanish Steps" named IL VIAGGIO where everything is available gluten free, too. Everything means pasta, pizza (the best I've ever had), main courses and desserts. The owner is an award winning executive chef name Luca Casciani who dedicated his experience to gluten free and food allergies because of his son. This restaurant is considered the best in Italy by the A.I.C. (Italian gluten free association). Highly recommended for all the people who need gluten free food in Rome!

It is not easy, if impossible, to find a full gluten free restaurant in Rome, but this is the one. Recommended by the staff of our hotel, we decided to enjoy this restaurant, and it was great. Delicious gluten free pasta, pizza, and dessert . And all the staff speak English. GREAT.
