    We went to Maggianos this weekend, it was packed we made reservations and had to wait about 15 min, no big deal. When we sat down right away the waitress asked if we had any food allergies and I said yes in allergic to gluten, then she went on about I can have the chef come out or just order corn based noodles which was fine with me so I ordered spaghetti and I hate to say it but it was not good at all very dry and the noodles were hard :(. I've made corn based noodles many times and have had it at a few other places and had no problem, maybe next time we will try something else! On a good note they do not up charge you on having to order gf noodles, which no place should really we can't help we have Celiacs. Other then that the waitress was friendly but we waited for our drinks twice at least 10minutes but it was very busy!

    just ask your server and the chef will talk to you about gf options. Most things on the menu can have gf pasta substituted. Everything is made separate so no cross contamination.

    Told waiter about celiac and he said that he could absolutely do that. I ate through a whole part of the veal thinking that the sauce was kinda thick... When I double checked with him he went back to ask the chef who apparently forgot... So... I got very sick. Please ask for manager when placing an order.

    My wife and I stopped in for a light dinner (salads), and the waiter immediately asked about allergies. Once I told him my wife was gluten intolerant, allergic to orange and chocolate, he brought the chef out. The food was good, but sitting outside you have to deal with the ignorant public who thinks it is a good idea to strike up a few cigarettes right next to where you are eating. The waiter said inside they can't smoke, but because there isn't a law in NV about public smoking they couldn't do anything. Not a knock on the restaurant, but the environment took away some points.

    Everything here is made from scratch, so they can pretty much modify any dish according to your dietary restrictions. I opted not to get the pasta, and instead ordered the chicken marsala. I told the waiter I'm gluten and dairy-free, so they prepared it accordingly and made appropriate substitutions. The waiter seemed knowledgeable, and he made sure to double check with the chef about ingredients. Overall, very accommodating and understanding.

    I am sitting at Maggianos as I write this review because they absolutely deserve it. I came to eat here mid day and the chef himself came to my table to talk to me about my options and the pasta and my mom and I both had (both gluten free but different dishes) was by far the best gluten free pasta I have ever had whether at home or I'm a restaurant. They care about allergies and made sure I was satisfied and I am leaving full with leftovers I can't wait to eat later.

    Went last night and had a horrible experience. After following their protocol and speaking to the chef, they apparently mixed up my dish with my daughter's. They looked similar so after they were served I asked if the server was sure. He said yes he double checked. But no...he mixed up the dishes and I am now paying for it. Will never eat there again.

    We used to really like this place, but then we went last week for the first time in years and were completely disappointed. For one, they got rid of their GF bread, which was delicious, but not a big deal. The real problem was they don't have a GF menu but claim to be able to make almost everything on the menu GF, which seemed like it would be ok. However, the more we asked about specific options, almost every time they said they couldn't be accommodating. Basically, it seemed like you could order anything as long as you were OK with them modifying it down to GF penne pasta with red sauce. The worst part was that it made the whole experience more about the things we *couldn't* order, rather than about the things we could order. We left completely frustrated, and we wouldn't want anyone else to experience the same thing.

    My office bought lunch for us today and I was excited to be able to partake this time, albeit worried about becoming ill at work. The food was amazing!!! The gentleman taking the order was wonderful. The portion size is huge and to be able to eat (bread) rolls from a restaurant was so exciting. I did not become ill and will be eating there again and again and again.

    I like Magginao's because it is a great option for gluten free pasta, which is penne. I do like that Maggiano's has one of its chefs come out to the table to take your order and discuss the menu with you if it is needed. This is done with any food allergies. Just make sure you make your server aware. The amount of food, especially pasta, is enough for two meals, thus left overs might normally accompany you home. One of my go to dishes is the Chef KB's Lobster Carbonara. You do get a lot of lobster with this dish. Is it the best lobster that you can every have, no, but it accompanies the pasta well. While it isn't the best GF pasta, it isn't by far the worst I've ever had.

    In town for the Blade Show with my husband. Attended a dinner at this restaurant. Contacted them in advance and was assured they take food allergies very seriously, asked for my name and said they'd make sure the chef came out to talk to me that evening. Chef did talk to me, personally took my order and brought my food out to me. My meal may have been better than everyone else's! Great experience start to finish.

    I went to Maggiano's after seeing all the wonderful reviews. I was so excited to be able to take my husband there for his birthday since it is one of his fave's; And since finding out about my gluten intolerence 6 months ago we haven't gone out to dinner much as I've been learning what to look out for. Unfortuantley, my experience was far different than the positive reviews I read. I told the server right away about my intolerence, she seemed very non chalant about it and quickly said the sauces are free and penne, then she set the bread basket down between us. I asked her very nicely to clarify that penne was the only pasta option and she said yes. I ordered the Rigatoni D since I thought it was a good choice served with Penne. Luckily, I know my pastas because they brought me out the Rigatoni without the GF pasta! I said something to the food runner and she confirmed it was not GF and seemed confused as if it wasn't notated on my order. About 6 minutels later while my huisband sat looking at his pasta getting cold mine finally arrived. I will give it one more shot for him just in case it was just the server who created a bad experience, but needless to say we were very disappointed. (and also, being Italian myself I really wish they had more choices than just Penne.. it would be plain wrong to eat certain sauces over penne... lol)

    Tasty. Good GF pasta. Haven't had a bad meal or gotten ill, and we've been here a lot. Most times the chef will come speak to you (if I'm just getting a classic pasta I tell them not to worry about it). They've modified many a menu item for me, even beyond their usual modification just because I have a craving. Oh, and the GF rolls are Andreas herb dinner rolls. I have to slap my non-GF husband's hand to stay away from them.

    Maggiano's is one of the best GF chain restaurants I've ever seen. Even though it is a chain, every restaurant feels like a local eaterie. GF menu is extensive and plenty of options. Side Caesar salad is the best GF salad I've ever had. The GF pasta and meat sauce tastes great. Chef speaks with you about the GF options and makes sure that he knows dietary concerns. A+ rating! You have to eat here!

    Was there on a busy Saturday night about a week ago. The waitress was pretty good. She intercepted the breadbasket that was headed for our table and knew for sure of at least one gf dessert option without having to check. The gf pasta was fresh and went great with the red sauce and prosciutto wrapped chicken. All of their sauces are gf so that helps a great deal with cross contamination. Wish we had gotten just a bit more personal attention, but considering how busy they were that night, I was very pleased with the meal and the service.

    Was not impressed by this Maggiano's in Houston. The waitress did not have the chef come to my table, which has always been done at their other locations. She said they were "in a thing.". If they were in a thing, then who was cooking?! I should have left at that point but I didn't have any other options nearby, as I was on foot. Waitress was horrible. I asked twice for a straw & never got it, and the restaurant was empty! Food came out wrong and was completely bland & tasteless. Won't be going back to this location ever.

When food arrived I was cautious as always ate 2 bites of my pasta and waited a bit to make certain it wasn't contaminated. When waiter came back to table I said one more time "these are gluten free right?" He said oh no those are regular noodles. So sorry let me get you the gluten free ones, I immediately started to cry.

    Called them to inquire about the gluten free capability and the were quick to inform me how accommodating they are with GF issues, the chef come out to greet you personally to discuss what your needs are and what choices you have. Great food, gluten free pasta was my choice. They need some gluten free breads but still great experience. Bad thing...the take home pasta they give, covered in cheese, not sure what they were thinking since my original order was perfect...must have just ignored the allergy ticket.
