Gluten free gelato in Perugia, Italy

Reviewer: Gftraveler from South Riding, VA

This is the best gelato we've had in Italy. There are locations in all the big towns/cities in Italy. However, they make small, artisan-style batches of gelato using only the finest ingredients (nothing artificial), and ALL flavors are gluten free. In fact, I believe everything in the store is gluten free, including the cones and biscotti (which you can buy packaged to go). I love this place and have now visited many of their locations throughout Italy.

Vineyard tour and lovely light lunch with gluten free option

Reviewer: Gftraveler from South Riding, VA

We had a tour of the Di Filippo vineyards/winery, which is just outside the famous town of Assisi. We had a horse-drawn wagon ride through the vineyards, with the owner of the property, Roberto Di Filippo, telling us about the organic production of the grapes. They use animals to keep away pests, fertilize the soil, etc. Afterwards, we had the opportunity for a lovely light lunch of cured meats and cheeses, gluten free crackers (for those of us who are gluten free) and a delicious salad...along with a sampling of 5 of their wonderful wines. Like many vintners in Umbria, they specialize in Grechetto (white) and Sagrantino (red) wines, but they have other varietals as well, like Trebbiano, Sangiovese, and various white and red blends. This is a great winery to visit in you're visiting Umbria.

Gluten free store and bakery in Foligno, Italy

Reviewer: Gftraveler from South Riding, VA

This small grocery store is entirely gluten free. They have wonderful food of all types, including things in a refrigerator and freezer section. There are pizzas, meals, desserts, and more. All the good European gluten free brands on the shelves, too. And they have a small bakery section with fresh-baked gluten free cakes, cookies, biscotti, tarts, etc. All very good. If you're staying in the Foligno area and need some gluten free staples -- or just want some gluten free treats (fresh from their bakery or packaged), this is a great place to stop.

Wonderful and elegant dinner in Montefalco

This was one of the nicest restaurants we dined at on our recent trip to Umbria. It is a rather elegant restaurant, and the food was outstanding. Here, we chose the specialties of the night...and the specialties of the house. There are no gluten free markings on the menu, but like most restaurants in Italy, they understand very well what is in their food -- and how to prepare a safe meal for someone with Celiac. Here they also have gluten free pasta which can be substituted for regular pasta. As a first course, I ordered the pasta special of the day, which was pasta with Sagrantino wine sauce and mushrooms. For my main course, I ordered the house special: a T-bone steak, Florentine style. I never typically order a steak this big, but as it was the specialty of the house, I'm so glad I did. The man in charge of cooking steaks over the open fire in the front of the restaurant came to ask us if we wanted to come see our steaks before he cooked them. We did -- and stayed to watch how he prepped them for cooking. He scored the strip side and then poured a bit of olive oil on them. I ordered it cooked medium rare/medium, and it was perfect. So much flavor. When brought to the table, the server asks what type of salt or other toppings you want on it. I opted for a bit more olive oil and had various salts put on my plat to try, including the famous Sagrantino salt (salt soaked in the region's red wine) and pink Himalayan salt. Everything was perfect, along with the sides of baked potatoes and baked artichoke that a few of us ordered to share. They did have a gluten free dessert: panna cotta, but after this meal, I was too full to eat another bite!

Gluten free pizza at restaurant in Foligno, Italy

Reviewer: Gftraveler from South Riding, VA

While we did not eat at this restaurant, they very prominently displayed a sign outside advertising their gluten free pizza. I only discovered this as we were getting ready to leave the town for another restaurant elsewhere (we were with a small tour group). But if you're in Foligno, check it out. It is on the main shopping thoroughfare, which is well worth a visit. We found some of the best shopping in Umbria in this town, which is more a "locals" town of businesses, etc. than just a touristy town. It's hard to RATE this restaurant since I didn't try the pizza, but if it's anything like the other places serving gluten free pizza in Italy (good, and safe), I'm guessing it's at least worth investigating.
