Gluten Free Italian in Albuquerque,

Found this on the Gluten Free Travel Site, but with a slightly dated review. Extensive Gluten Free Menu including pizza. I had the pizza with tiramisu for dessert. The pizza had to be among the best gluten free pizza's I have had. Had plans to go again before returning but could not. Definitely a must-go if you like Italian food.

There were a few places listed as 'gluten free' on the gluten free apps I use to find restaurants when I travel, but many either had negative reviews or no mention of gluten free on their actual website (something I personally try to avoid as it is often a warning signal). Paisano's seemed like the best bet for gluten free dining near Albuquerque, but it being the only restaurant around that seemed so doesn't mean it was just sub par. In fact, it was a good experience.

The restaurant itself is a quaint and inviting little joint, although they are closed from 2:30-5pm, which meant Mike and I had to wait around for food. We were glad we did though. We ordered a New Planet Beer, Caprese, Shrimp Primavera, and Linguinne Alla Livorno without the chicken. The food was seasoned to perfection and well balanced in flavor, and the fresh ingredients were locally grown and obtained from small local farms or businesses, according to the manager who visited our table. This is a plus I always enjoy seeing in restaurants. It shows me they care about their local community as well as food quality. In addition, presentation was good (it was around Olympics time -- can you see the rings in the picture to the right!?), and all gluten free items were marked with a tooth pick. They even had gluten free bread and many desserts!

Overall, there are many gluten free options and they are well worth the reasonable price. Therefore I give this place a good 4.5 rating, only because while the food was good, it wasn't stellar or anything particularly memorable compared to other gluten free Italian experiences. Still a good place with the visit!

It's so hard to find gluten free Italian food anywhere, but this place is truly a find. Gluten free items are available throughout the menu -- appetizers, pasta dishes, pizza, lasagna, ravioli, a full line of desserts, and done to perfection, as the owner and his dad, the original owner, are both Italian Celiacs. Also gluten free beer You really can't go wrong with any gluten free item on their menu.
