We are lucky that there are many Italian restaurants that will accommodate the gluten free consumer.
Recently we have even seen a surge in restaurant chains that provide an entire gluten free menu or, failing that, an allergen menu.
This makes eating out easier than ever and enables you to eat alongside your gluten eating friends without any worries.
We have mainly listed below those chains that provide a gluten-free or allergen menu - however please let us know if we have missed out any of your favourites at: firstname.lastname@example.org

We could not love Pizza Express more.
They are one of the restaurant chains that has led the way in gluten free dishes.
They have a range of gluten-free dishes on their menu, including risotto, sorbets and a pilsner.
And they've introduced gluten-free dough balls so now you can enjoy this signature dish.
They also have Classic and Piccolo pizza bases, so all of their pizza recipes can now be enjoyed, gluten-free.
In addition, any of their salads can be made gluten-free by removing dough sticks or croutons.
They've worked hard to ensure that you can be fully confident of no issues upon entering any PizzaExpress.
This includes changing processes in their kitchens – including labelling and storage, using new equipment only for gluten-free food, as well as changing the flour they use for tossing and stretching their dough to be gluten-free.
Coeliac UK have awarded them with their gluten-free accreditation due to these changes and to put your mind at rest.
While they say that they can't guarantee a 100% flour-free environment, no pizza with the gluten free logo in their menu uses any ingredient containing gluten.
The people at Rossopomodoro say that they always try to make sure to have enough gluten free pizza dough available but, at times, demand might exceed their estimates so please contact your favourite ROSSOPOMODORO restaurant to reserve your gluten free pizza.
This great chain provides an entire gluten free menu with starters, pasta, pizza, meat, fish and dessert.
