For my wife however, who is Celiac, pasta, pizza and breadsticks were not an option.
In most places this was fine due to the presence of tomato salad, prosciutto and grilled meats.

Rome treated my wife very well however, and part of the reason was that we stumbled onto Taverna Barberini.

I wish that I could tell you that you could get a gluten-free tiramisu but, to my knowledge, that is just not possible. However, given that gelato should be classified as a world treasure you're OK if you just stick with that. Just down the road from Barberini is a tiny little yogurtaria named "neyoyo". You won't find it on any of the big city guides or websites, it doesn't have a fancy facade or word of mouth buzz. What it does have is a hand-made sign and an owner who really takes his gelato seriously.
What this place does have are excellent Aperol Spritz, a nice place to eat on the sidewalk, a Google+ page and some of the best Gelato I had in Rome at reasonable prices.
When we were planning our Rome trip the wife and I were concerned that finding food for her to eat would be a problem. We were very wrong. It was easy to find several menu options at all the places we visited that allowed her to eat as well as I. Granted, we never did find gluten free pasta carbonara but we're going to work on making that at home.
