I’ve been missing Italy a lot lately since a friend of mine and her husband just came back from their holiday in Florence or Firenze in Italian and another friend is planning her trip over the summer. These both bring back great memories of traveling multiple times to Florence with close friends from university as well as from graduate school.

Kim Koeller - Ponte Vecchio Florence ItalyI also love Italian art, architecture, food and wine and became spoiled when I lived in Italy working with a manufacturing client for three months  – So it always feels like I’m going home!

For those of you longing to visit Florence or those in the process of planning a holiday vacation to Italy, here are a few of my recommendations for a very fun and tasty gluten free (or in Italian senza glutine) trip to remember.

Of course, my friends and I really savored our meals and the wine in restaurants throughout Florence. That being said, our top two favorites that I need to visit each time I visit Florence include:

  • Ristorante Ciro & Sons– has amazing gluten free pizza, pasta and ambiance (pizza senza glutine). They also offer incredible dishes that my friends without any dietary concerns really enjoyed. The restaurant is managed by four generations of the family who are extremely helpful. I can smell my pizza just writing this!  So soak up the music, food and wine and relax! – Via del Giglio, 26/28r.
  • Ristoro di Lamole – has an amazing view of vineyards and countryside as evidenced in the first photo of this post! They have great gluten free  and regular pasta and truly overall delicious dishes for an authentic Italian eating experience in Tuscany (Toscano). Just thinking about this makes my mouth water right now! They also have a great wine selection for purchase with over 300 labels in case you want to go wine shopping before or after your meal. Located outside of Florence and requires renting a car or hiring a driver -Via di Lamole, 6  50022 Greve in the Chianti Province of Florence.

A few other excellent restaurants that understood how to prepare safe gluten and dairy free meals after discussion with the restaurant staff using my translation cards include:

Check out other gluten free restaurants and bakeries in Florence and throughout Italy.

For gluten free cooking classes, also visit Chef Vary who resides in Florence in the historic center.

Believe it or not, Italy is one of the easier foreign speaking countries to visit while managing a gluten free diet. The level of awareness for celiac disease or celiachia in Italian is higher than many other places in the world.  In addition, the  Associazone Italiana Celiachia gluten free restaurants throughout Italy. The English language section of this website is currently under construction but you can still find suggested restaurants in Italian.

For those of you gluten and allergy free, always remember to purchase and print multiple copies of the restaurant translation cards for gluten free Italian and allergy free Italian dining.  Also I always carry the Multi-Lingual Phrase Passport for Travel with me which includes 300 more Italian phrases so I feel safe, prepared and confident at all times! I hope you enjoy Firenze and Italia as much as I do!

    So happy to hear that you loved this restaurant too! Since I’m celiac, I obviously loved all of the gluten free options. At the same time, you bring up an excellent point as my friends who could eat gluten loved the food too!
