    There appears to be a mistake in the italian phrase you gave. It should start with an “i” not an “L” — it’s “io sono celiaco”. This is pronounced “EE-oh SO-no chay-lee-AH-co”. Fortunatley you can actually skip the “io” part and just say “Sono celiaco”.

    The problem is, the capital letter “i” looks like a lower-case “L” — I vs. L. And I think that’s where the problem stems from.

    I live in Rome and have Celiac Disease. I was eating at a restaurant called Casa Coppelle near the Pantheon. They had prosciutto and melon, caprese salad, and they made me gluten free pasta. It was so delicious and relatively inexpensive. I had prosciutto and melon and pasta for about 20 euro.

    Just returned from Rome 8/29/11. Casa Bleve is closed. Seemed to be either the heath department or past due taxes. Ate at La Terrazza with my family. While the views and service were great, it is very expensive. Lunch for four was over 150 Euros. We had absolutely the cheapest food on the menu and ate in the bar(ie-cheaper side). My daughter enjoyed the gluten free bread sticks, rolls and sliced bread. She said it the best gluten free bread she ever had. It was nice to see the smile on her face.
