This gluten-free (and intolerance-friendly) pizza haven recently opened in Gràcia and is located just steps away from its well-established sibling, Messie Pizza. Messie Sin Gluten brings the outdoors indoors with astroturf flooring, terrace-style decoration and lots of natural light, thanks to the glass doors. “We’ve even painted the walls a light pink and white, the same as the street walls are painted outside, to feel as though you are sitting outside on a terrace, still part of the neighbourhood even as you dine,” owner Eric Luthringer explained. He believes that Gràcia is the most food-conscious barrio in the city, where the most experimental eateries can be found. “I wanted to open a place where gluten-frees could bring their non-gluten-free friends and all could dine together and enjoy the same great food, without there being different menus or even the risk of contamination, which is a big worry for those who suffer from intolerances.” Messie Sin Gluten offers pizza, pasta, salads and an array of beverages, including 20 gluten-free beers. And it’s not just gluten-avoiders who can enjoy eating here—Messie Sin Gluten is very accommodating to those with other allergies, including lactose and nut-free diners, with a kitchen and trained staff who are meticulous when it comes to ensuring dietary requirements are adhered to.
