There are many reasons people choose a gluten-free diet. Some people are allergic to wheat or have celiac disease while others prefer to avoid wheat products for different reasons, such as dieting or because it just makes them feel better. No matter the motivation, going gluten-free can sometimes be a scary prospect, especially if you are looking for gluten free Italian food!
Food in Italy provides the centerpiece for family, social life, and personal relationships. However, Italian food staples – pasta, pizzas, and bread – are traditionally made using a range of wheat products. Even gelato and tiramisu desserts usually contain wheat.
So what is an Italian food fan to do when it comes to avoiding wheat as an ingredient? Come to Pinocchio’s Italian Eatery! We are proud to offer many of our menu items gluten-free – and even more pleased to make these plates a delightful-tasting alternative to traditionally made Italian meals.
At Pinocchio’s we work hard to ensure our gluten free Italian food options are as fresh and delicious as any item on the menu. Anyone choosing to avoid gluten can choose from a range of dishes including
- Linguini with White Clam Sauce,
- Pinocchio Ravioli,
- Gluten-free side bread,
- homemade Chocolate Walnut Torte for dessert,
- and even gluten-free beer!

From spaghetti noodles to unique and rich homemade desserts, our gluten-free guests can enjoy an extensive array of Italian food options while dining at Pinocchio’s. Our gluten-free options are so tasty that they are often ordered – even for those not on a gluten-free diet!
