Having never visited Prague, I wasn’t sure about the restaurants and how gluten-free friendly they might be. Just as with Munich and Berlin, the two other cities we visited on our recent European family vacation, I did quite a bit of research online first to find what sounded like the best restaurants for gluten free dining. And, in fact, we may have ended up dining at the two only 100% gluten free full-scale restaurants in Prague: Alriso Risotteria Italiana and Restaurace U Agamy.

Ideally, it’s great to find a 100% gluten free establishment, especially when you don’t know the language and therefore may have a hard time asking questions and explaining the nuances of cross contamination. In this case, I did also come across reviews of places that weren’t dedicated gluten free but seemed to be very well-versed on how to keep Celiacs safe. The next step was to look at the menus online to see which would appeal most to our family, in terms of... Read more →
