GF Pasta in Italy -- Via Venti in Cinque Terre

Reviewer: Travelin_baehres

I was worried that his small but highly recommended trattoria wouldn't have anything but pasta. Silly me. Not only did they serve plenty of mains as well, but they had gluten-free pasta right on the menu! I had warm seafood salad for a starter (simply sauteed fresh seafood and shellfish with a bit of olive oil), and seafood pasta for the first course. It was a delicious linguinni with clams, prawns, and squid in a garlic and olive oil sauce. The rice pasta was quite tasty too. Grilled tuna for second course, and espresso and limoncello for dessert. A friend of ours spoke Italian and was teasing the waiter for taking so long to bring our food. The waiter explained that because it was GF pasta, they had to use a clean pot, and boil fresh water to make sure there was no cross contamination. That's great news, and just what you want to hear, to feel comfortable that your meal is going to be safe.

I wanna burger!

This is American quality hamburgers, which may not sound impressive, unless you've ever eaten British hamburgers. Celiacs usually can't order burgers in England, because they usually include breadcrumbs (and in the sausages too). At Wannaburger the burgers are big and delicious, with lots of fun topping choices. A standard menu option allows you to choose to have your burger on a bed of salad instead of a bun (so you don't have to feel like a troublemaker asking for it that way). I like mine with chili and cheese. I sent them an e-mail asking about the gluten-free content of their burgers and was told that all beef and chicken burgers are GF without the bun. They also serve M&Ms with the check :)

I Love Lucy's

Reviewer: Travelin_baehres

Lucy's is one of my favorite places to eat in England, not just in the Lake District. The menu clearly marks everything that is glutenfree, and there is a lot to choose from. You'll be given gluten free bread as well. My Husband and I both love the Morrocan Tangine (I get it with rice instead of couscous), but every dish we've ordered has been delicious. For dessert, you can even get GF sticky toffee pudding! Lucy is usually there herself, stopping by to make sure everything is ok. Once, the table behind us had some trouble with the service and she made everything right and gave them free pudding. There's also an extensive wine list, at good prices (or so my savvy wine friends tell me) and decent house wine. Everyone we've sent to Lucy's so far has loved it too - GF or not!

Etna Pizzaria - Budapest

Reviewer: Travelin_baehres from Harrogate, UK

This is THE BEST GF PIZZA EVER !! There is a GF section right on their menu. THe waiters speak great English. The restaurant is working with Dr Schaars (Italian GF food company) to serve a fresh, not frozen, pizza crust that is cooked in a wood fire oven. I gave my husband a bite and he said he couldn't tell it was GF and he loved it. I haven't eaten anything so good since I was diagnosed. I ate at Etna I on the Buda side. It is definately off the tourist path, but you can get there by a bus #11 from Batthyani ter Metro stop, or it would be well worth a taxi ride. There is also an Etna II on the pest side, near the train station (I included their web site). If we had come here earlier in our trip and known it was so good, I would have eaten here repeatedly. PS - the regular non-GF calzone was great, and everything we saw folks eating looked really good as well.
