Gluten Free in Rome: 9 Restaurants & Bakeries

Tramezzini // A Gogo - Gluten Free

Eating gluten free in Rome is can be quite easy and super delicious. With a cuisine full of bread, pizza, and pasta, it sounds like it would be extremely difficult to eat gluten free in Italy, but it’s the contrary. Around 1% of Italians are celiac and the Italian Celiac Association (AiC) is widespread so there are many safe options even in the city of Rome. There are dedicated gluten free grocery stores, bakeries, restaurants, and separations in restaurants to prevent cross-contamination.

Still, sometimes it can be hard to find gluten free food while you’re traveling around in unfamiliar areas. Sometimes you spontaneously land somewhere and can’t find food. Other times you know exactly where you’re going and need to locate gluten free eateries.

Luckily for you, this guide provides some of the best 9 restaurants/cafes/gelaterieas to eat around the city. You can also find restaurants based on the top attrations if you hoping to locate some in the area you’re in/going.

Mama Eat Lab & Mama Eat Roma

Italian Restaurant


Lab Location: Borgo Pio, 28, 00193 Roma RM

  • Around: Vatican

Roma Location: Via di S. Cosimato, 7/9, 00153 Roma RM

  • Around: Trastevere

These two locations have the same menu filled with pizza, pastas, arranchini, fried goods, and more. If you want to cover a large range of Italian dishes as gluten free this is your spot. It tastes amazing, as if it weren’t gluten free. Both are in nice locations and the staff I’ve come across are always friendly.

GF: everything

Le Altre Farine Del Mulino


Location: Via di Porta Cavalleggeri, 151/153, 00165 Roma RM

  • Around: Vatican

Looking for a gluten free croissant or other baked goods? This bakery, located near the Vatican, is a locely place to sit and also opens fairly early if that’s what you need.

GF: everything

Voglia di Pizza – Gluten free

Italian Restaurant


Location: Via dei Giubbonari, 33, 00186 Roma RM

  • Around: Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Ponte Sisto, Palazzo Farnese

If you’re with people that don’t want gluten free this place offers both a gluten free and a regular menu. But they are specialized in gluten free and ensure no cross-contamination. This place is worth the short walk from the destinations above (Around: …) as it is located in one of those small restuarntat filled, typical Rome streets. It’s a wonderful place to sit and observe others walking by.

GF: everything can be made gluten free (safe)

A Gogo – Gluten Free

Gluten-free Restaurant

Location: Viale Giulio Cesare, 66/68, 00192 Roma RM

  • Around: Vatican

You can sit and eat here, but it’s not a particularly lovely location – fine for breakfast but probably not dinner. One of my favorite things to do here is grab tramezzini (cold sandwich) and keep it in my bag for lunch later. The benefit of them is they are conveniently already wrapped up tightly, perfect lunch, and are a traditional Italian food.

GF: everything but the croissants (held seperate from everything else)

La Soffitta Renovatio

Italian Restaurant


Location: Piazza del Risorgimento, 46/a, 00192 Roma RM

  • Around: Vatican

This is a more high end restaruant. While it’s not crazy expensive they are relativly smaller portions for the price. The plus side is you’ll get some things you may not find gluten free else where like fried baby squid or Romain-style braised Oxtail. This restaruant offers a lot of fish, meat, and other traditional Italian dishes.

New Gluten Free Food



Some locations, like the one pictured in Ponte Sisto, are not really meant to sit and eat in. So New Gluten Free Food is better if you need something for on the go or for later. You can find a large selection of sweets but also larger dishes like pizza and other savory options.

This is also a chain that has various locations around Rome, so check out where you’re headed.

Celiachiamo Lab

Grocery Store & Bakery

Location: Via Trionfale, 15, 00195 Roma RM

  • Around: Vatican

Location: Via della Magliana, 183, 00146 Roma RM

You may have read that this is a grocery store, but they also have a bakery where you can get prepared food like pizza and cannoli. I highly suggest this store if you plan on cooking since they are 100% gluten free. You can also get packaged foods to bring back home with you that you might not find anywhere else. 


Gelato Shop


  • Around: Trastevere or Villa Borghese or Ponte Sisto or Colloseum & more

Fatamorgana is a gelato chain you can find in various locations.

Apart from being completely gluten free, they carry a couple of vegan options if you’re looking for a dairy free gelato for instance. They have a large flavor selection and are clearly beloved.

GF: everything


Gelato Shop

Locations & Menu

  • Around: Piazza Navona & more

Grom is so delicious and carries unique flavors from sicilian cassata to nougat to neapolitan pastiera. There’s one right next to Piazza Navona if you’re in the area and want a wonderful location to enjoy gelato. Everything is gluten free – even the cone.

GF: everything


  • English: gluten free; Italian: senza glutine
  • Enlgish: celiac; Italian: celiaca (feminine) celiaco (masculine)
  • Sometimes restaurants will have the Italian Celiac Association logo plastered on their door, window, or menus and you can identify their safeness right away.
  • Tramezzini are easy to carry around since they’re already packaged & can be a good lunch idea if you know you won’t have options at your next location
  • Here’s an idea for if you love iced coffee (since it’s rarely available)
    • Ask for: espresso, cup of ice (ghiaccio), & milk (or bring your own from the little non-perishable packs – especially if you don’t want whole milk)
    • Then: pour espresso & milk in the cup of ice & grab a straw
    • Boom… iced latte. For iced coffee just omit the milk.
