Nebo | North End, Boston

Nebo is my #1 pick for gluten free Italian food in Boston.

Opened in June of 2005, nebo is an upscale Italian restaurant and enoteca (wine bar) located in the heart of Boston’s North End. Born in Boston’s culturally rich North End neighborhood, chef/owners Carla and Christine Pallotta stand inspired by their mother’s and grandmother’s classic Italian recipes as well as their travels throughout Italy and other European regions. Most importantly, they offer an extensive gluten free menu that is almost identical to their regular menu.

Here’s what you can expect:
-Unprompted, the hostess will ask if anyone in your party needs a gluten free menu
-When you’re seated, your server will ask if anyone in your party has food allergies
-You will be overwhelmed by the number of gluten free options
-Your food will be delicious
-You will go home very full, and very happy

Here’s what I have eaten.. yumm yummm

piatto di formaggi- selection of italian cheeses
sale e pepe- sea salt, white peppercorn, marinated chicken wings, pepper rings
Burrata- cream filled mozzarella, proscuitto di parma, balsamic fig glaze

Cesare- romaine hearts, anchovies,  caesar dressing

pollo alla limone- sautéed chicken, capers, artichoke hearts, lemon butter sauce
cappesante- seared sea scallops, light mascarpone cream sauce

(not on the menu, but ask for it!) A flourless chocolate cake with walnuts and pistachios, topped off with ice cream.

  1. We love Nebo’s too! Carla and Christine are the ultimate Hostesses and make everyone feel like we are sitting in thier kitchen…really nice kitchen! We celebrated my daughters 16th Birthday here with a group of her friends and she never felt “different” throughout the entire dinner. Christine had an amazing cake made for her that everyone enjoyed. We have returned several times.
