Rome: The eternal city is Gluten Free. Guide to restaurants, ice cream parlors, pizzerias, gluten-free shops and laboratories.
Welcome to Rome. We are Italians and Romans. Maybe there are other cities really "gluten free" as Rome. We have traveled to many Nations and we rarely found such a great chance to places where Celiacs can eat or buy gluten-free products (restaurants, Hotels, coffee shop, workshops, stores that sell only food for coeliacs). Many pharmacies and supermarket chains see products for Celiacs. You can find gluten-free products shops even in any market. The merit of this is of Italian Celiac Association (AIC) and for the city of Rome and its region "LAZIO" local structure AIC LAZIO. AIC has promoted the project "EATING OUT" for many years: In addition to the awareness raising and the promotion of gluten-free food, AIC performs constant monitoring of structures. You won't find many large chain restaurants gluten free (as in other large cities in the world): This is the quality factor [the staff changes very frequently in large food chains and there is a minor owner's direct control and therefore less attention and knowledge of cross-contamination (the big problem hidden in meals coeliacs). Other websites indicate many other gluten free restaurants in Rome as in other cities in the world: We enter to eat and indicate only the restaurants and the companies included in the lists of associations of various countries when the associations indicate a place where they recommend to eat: We have verified that the restaurants included in the lists of national associations do not follow all the security protocols even when they declare that their meals are gluten free. [This rule is valid in countries where coeliac associations have created a guide to eating out]. Then we enter to eat in Italy only in the activities recognized by AIC When these exist. We share our experience and we are only those companies ( restaurants, pastry shops, coffe shop, workshops) where we or our friends eat habitually Celiacs. This does not mean that other activities are not good: We highlight companies that we attend more often. We will also link to all other activities included in the lists by AIC in Rome. All activities have their own specialty: You should visit them all. These cooks, Maestri pastai, confectioners,Essa masters often have Celiacs or they have a relative celiac. They perform their work using the best raw materials and they are the best Italian food in their field of activity.
