It is not as helpful in less touristy regions, but in areas like Tuscany or Rome you’ll find a ton of spots on their gluten free roads maps. It’ll change your travel life completely. Impromptu pizza stops are in your future.
Printable Italian Celiac Restaurant Card Print this card, laminate it and bring it with you to restaurants in Italy. Though the population is much more well versed in food allergies now, there are still many who don’t understand the full scope of foods that contain gluten (for instance many don’t understand that ALL grains are not off limits… )
Starbene Senza Glutine -this bakery has locations now all over Italy: Siena, Florence, Rome, Lucca, Modena and more. It’s a bit complicated to contact them as all the stores are run separately (like a franchise) so no store has information on any other store and if you just google Starbene you might get any one of the stores. So, best option is to type in Starbene senza glutine in Facebook plus the city where you’ll be and find the exact shop you’re looking for. There you’ll find hours, days open and phone number/address, etc. They have some of the best fresh baked gluten free breads that I’ve had in Italy (except for the tiny bio shops I stumble across that have weekly deliveries of the really good whole grain stuff)
