sans de ble rome
Pastries at Sans de Blé in San Paolo.

In spite of Rome’s reputation as an epicenter of gluten consumption, the Italian capital is actually very in tune to celiac needs and a growing number of businesses are dedicated to providing gluten free food and beverages. A handful of gelato shops (including all Fatamorgana locations) are certified gluten free and there is plenty of gluten free pasta, pizza, beer and pastries to be found if you know where to look.

The Lazio branch of the Italian Celiac Association has created this map, which is regularly updated and lists gluten free venues, from restaurants and gelato shops to hotels and highway rest stops. Additionally, all pharmacies and many supermarket and grocery chains (including Conad, Carrefour, SMA, Coop, Auchan, Castroni, and La Capra Rampante) sell gluten free food and ingredients.
