#MondaysinMilan becomes #TuesdaysinMilan this week – I was stuck in Rome with no laptop and couldn’t post it until today. My apologies friends! Here is a very special post, brought to you by amazing Angie from Reasons to Dress, on the best Gluten Free Restaurants in Milan. If you’re a veggie, check our best vegetarian restaurants post!

Maybe you’ve been dreaming about coming to the EXPO2015 in Milan this year but are worried you’ll have nowhere to eat. Sadly, this is a real fear when you are living with Celiac Disease or a Gluten Sensitivity. Unless you want to spend your entire holiday cooking your own food,  you have to research and find out where to eat in advance.

I decided to put together this list and map for any English speakers who are thinking of visiting Milan during the EXPO2015. Even though there are plenty of restaurants for a perfect gluten free weekend in Milan, finding information in English isn’t that easy. This year’s EXPO2015 theme is Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, so what a perfect time to share the best gluten free restaurants in Milan with the English speaking world.

top ten gluten free restaurants in milan

So here is my list of the top ten restaurants that offer gluten free menus in Italy’s most international city – Milan!

I hope this inspires anyone out there with a gluten sensitivity or Celiac Disease to come to Milan, knowing that they will be able to enjoy one of Italy’s best offerings….the food!

1 – La Cantina Piemontese

By far my TOP recommended restaurant in the centre of Milan. They offer an extensive menu that is certified gluten free with excellent quality ingredients. Here you can enjoy traditional Milan favourites like Risotto allo Zafferano with Ossobuco and the Cotoletta alla Milanese, Milan breaded cutlet, in delicious gluten free versions.

However, if you don’t want to limit yourself to traditional Milanese dishes, La Cantina Piemontese also specialises in dishes from the Piedmont area of Italy (hence the name!) – I recommend the Risotto with Castelmagno cheese! I’ve personally eaten at La Cantina Piemontese and you can find my full review here complete with pictures of their delicious desserts and details on how to get there. The location is one of the most convenient in the city for gluten free dining, only a few minutes walk from the Duomo of Milano.

This is a fine dining restaurant perfect for a romantic date or family lunch date (high chairs are available), they also have a patio open in the summer months and booking in advance is recommended.

A basket of warm gluten free “Gnocco Fritto”!

3 & 4 – Tigella’s

With not one but TWO locations near the centre of Milan, Tigella’s is easily one of my favorite gluten free spots in the city, especially if you are visiting with children and/or have a tight budget. Absolutely yummy. That is the word I use to describe the warm tigelle (small, round shaped breads cooked on a hot plate) and gnocco fritto (see the pic above – heaven!) that are served up with large platters of cold cuts like Parma ham and salami, cheeses and traditional sauces and toppings.

Tigella’s takes its name from a famous Italian street food that is basically a flatbread traditionally made with flour, water, yeast, milk, salt and oil or lard. I live in the land of the Tigella, Modena, but it’s not easy to find a place serving up gluten free versions of it. I was so happy when I found these two restaurants in Milan!

Gnocco Fritto is a worthwhile guilty pleasure, a savoury square dough that is fried up into a big puff and stuffed with mortadella or prosciutto crudo. A flaky, buttery, crispy, crunchy must taste in Emilia Romagna, now you can have them in Milan too! Don’t miss your chance to indulge in these gluten free versions of two famous Italian street foods – perhaps it’s not so good for the waistline, but you want regret it.

Here you can find my complete review of Tigella’s with details on the menu and their complete offering. I also recommend booking in advance and going on an empty stomach!

5 – Grani e Braci

An Italian-style steakhouse focused on grilling any cut of meat you desire. They also have a full gluten free menu. The location is convenient, especially if you feel like doing some shopping at 10 Corso Como, Milan’s epicentre of cutting-edge fashion and design.

6 – Be Bop Ristorante e Pizzeria

When you are limited by a gluten free diet, restaurant options may start to become a little boring. And after all, you are in Italy, so I’m sure you’ll want to try some pizza! In Milan look no further than the Be Bop Ristorante and Pizzeria. They offer a great gluten free menu complete with pasta, second courses, pizzas and (surprisingly) many international dishes like Indian spiced chick peas, and savoury fish starters.

You can easily find something for everyone at this gluten free oasis which also offers lots of vegetarian and vegan alternatives. They have a patio, lots of seating and are family friendly. The location is perfect if you plan on a stroll or post dinner drink at the Navigli canal area of Milan, which is lovely in the summertime!

Don’t skip dessert because they offer a wide selection of gluten free cakes, like their sweet ricotta and pistachio pie. YUM!

7 – Peperino Pizza

Very close to the 10 Corso Como luxury boutique, (I highly recommend you visit!) you’ll find Peperino Pizza, offering a full gluten free menu complete with over 35 different pizza combinations. Most of the dishes are described in English on their menu, so you won’t have a hard time ordering. As I said before, no trip to Italy is complete without pizza – here you can indulge, knowing that Peperino Pizza is certified gluten free!

I recommend booking in advance, as it tends to get very busy because of its central location. If you don’t feel comfortable calling you can find an online booking form on their website.

8 – Trattoria Casa Fontana 23 Risotti

Gluten Free certified by the Italian Celiac Association, this restaurant focuses on risotti of all types as the name reveals. I recommend booking in advance, as the restaurant is really small but intimate, perfect for a romantic dinner. Many risotti require you to order a minimum of two portions.

9 – La Rosa dei Venti

With a Celiac Chef at the helm, this restaurant is filled with creative gluten free dishes and their specialty is seafood. Please remember that the gluten free menu needs to be booked in advance, so please avoid disappointment and call or email to make your booking.

Branzino from the Osteria 5 Sensi

10 – Osteria dei 5 Sensi

Located just 10 minutes from Colonne di San Lorenzo, the Osteria dei 5 Sensi is the perfect place for lunch before an afternoon of vintage shopping and exploring. The owners of this refreshing Mediterranean restaurant decided to include a gluten free menu when they found out their son was Celiac. From signature dishes such as their Tagliolini 5 Sensi to imaginative appetizers such as black rice with a squash flan, their menu has a distinctly Southern Italian Flair.

Their forte (in my opinion) are the fish dishes and the gluten free penne with sword fish and cherry tomatoes – my absolute favourites!

Notes from Angie Nardiello, author of this post:

Reasons to Dress is a lifestyle blog, and now that I find myself with my son who has a Gluten Sensitivity, finding delicious gluten free options is a part of my life!! Even if you aren’t interested in gluten free travel, please feel free to pass this along to someone who might me. And I sincerely hope that this review and series makes someone’s vacation much more positive and easy. Just because you have a gluten intolerance doesn’t mean you can’t travel and enjoy all that life has to offer.

This Fall I’ll be launching a new website dedicated to Gluten Free in Italy, in the meantime you can follow along here for updates.

    Thank you so much for including this post in your #Mondays (sometimes Tuesdays !) in Milan series. I really hope that it can help any of your Celiac readers plan a great vacation in Milan and I’m so proud to have contributed to your incredible blog!

    1000 grazie

    • Margherita

      Thank you for the contribution Angie!

    Angie & Margherita,
    We’re hopefully Italy / Milan-bound in a few months, and so this guide came at a perfect time. Awareness of Celiac disease and gluten are quite good in Italy, however, since we found it’s not always easy to find spots that have gluten-free offerings, this post should be helpful. Cantina Piemontese’s dark-chocolate dessert looks fantastic!

    • Margherita

      I’m so glad to hear this. Hope you find the post useful & enjoy your Italy trip! Thanks for your comment 🙂

  3. Bob|Gluten Free Diet

    Milan never fails people around. You have a great offer of gluten-free out there ah. Well, I’ll try that recipes when I’ll get there. I’ll take Milan on my vacation lists.

  4. Cristina

    Ciao, mi permetto di consigliarvi un fantastico ristorante “Hostaria Borromei (via Borromei 4)” , molto vicino al Duomo. Sono molto attrezzati e offrono piatti alternativi senza glutine, veramente buoni!
    Hanno pasta fresca di mais molto buona e al momento ti fanno qualsiasi piatto con i ingredienti senza glutine… come fuori di zucca con farina di ceci o cotoletta con pan grattato gluten free. Anche tortino di cioccolato senza glutine e la birra!!!

  5. Rocio / Gluten te Desafío

    Hi! My name is Rocio and I’m celiac. I was in Milan for a few days and your post really helped me! Thank you so much 🙂
    Did you already open your blog?? I want to follow it! I will visit Italy again because I really like it and it’s gluten free friendly.
    I have a blog for people that travel around the word and are intolerant to gluten. I want to share it with you: http://www.glutentedesafio.com maybe we can do something together one day. All the best!! Thanks!! Rocio 🙂

    • Margherita

      Thanks for sharing your blog Rocio! There are lots of Italy articles on my post, feel free to browse and ask me any questions! Call me if you come back, I’d love to meet you!
