A weekend in Rome: gluten-free places in Rome that we tried – Part 2 –
In the first part of the article, we talked about gluten-free bakeries that we tried in Rome, now gluten-free restaurants and an ice-cream shop.
Address: Via Cardinale Marmaggi, 2 (Trastevere) – Phone 06 4566 5541
Hours: Mon-Thu 9:00 am – 11:00 pm | Fri-Sun 9:00 am – 12:00 pm | Closed on Tuesday
Organic ice-cream shop with all gluten-free flavors, including cones, and many lactose-free and vegans flavors. They also produce excellent chocolates and ice-cream cakes. The place is nice and welcoming and the two owners are friendly and passionate about their work.
They don’t use industrial preparations and you can taste that the ice-cream is made with natural and quality ingredients. We have tasted coffee, pistachio, cream and banana and I can’t say which was the best, all really good and we also liked the gluten-free cone. There are also many special flavors (such as coconut and dried figs or honey and ginger), which change continuously according to the “season”.
Very nice the idea of single-portion ice cream to “take away” in glass jars.

Another restaurant in Rome of this chain: Borgo Pio, 28 – Phone 06 835 13906 – Glusearch
Mama Eat is a chain of restaurants, present at the moment in Rome, Milan and Naples, with the possibility of having practically all the menu as gluten-free. In the restaurant of Trastevere, where we have been, they have a separate kitchen to make gluten-free dishes, which arrive at the table in transparent dishes, different from dishes with gluten, to ensure maximum certainty in the delivery of the dish.
The restaurant is very nice and welcoming and the staff very kind.
We had a very good cheese croquette (huge), and then 2 type of pasta, cheese and pepper and pasta “alla Nerano” (crunchy bacon, zucchini, and grana cheese) both really delicious. They use Rummo and Garofalo pasta, both really good brand.
We spent in total, including a bottle of water, € 39.00.
Address: Via del Forte Braschi, 82/A – Phone 06 614 2829
Hours: Mon-Sun 7:15 pm – 12:00 am
The restaurant is very large, in a single room, but furnished in such a way as to be welcoming anyway.
This restaurant has a separate kitchen for the gluten-free (the tablecloths have a plan of the restaurant printed on them, where you can see the position of the GF kitchen 🙂 ) and the dishes arrive all marked with a special flag.
We have taken two appetizers: a tomato bruschetta and potato with cheese and pepper, both excellent.
And after pizza: not exceptional, but still good.
The gluten-free dishes have a surcharge of € 1,00; in total, with water and coca cola, we spent € 23,50.
