    This place was absolutely horrendous, in terms of GF knowledge/sensitivity and service in general. Both the host and server were very rude and condescending when I asked for a GF menu for both myself and my friend. I also have a bad wheat allergy, and tried to make sure both of them knew I couldn't have bread anywhere near me. My friend ordered the house salad for an appetizer without croutons. They just picked them out, and left one behind, which I found. I had to leave the restaurant in a hurry because I hadn't brought my allergy medication inside with me, and the entire time the server and manager were trying to get me to stay and make it worse! Just because they have a GF menu doesn't mean they are willing to be understanding for your needs!

    Server gave me a GF menu and then when I ordered it she brought the regular meal. It took 45 min to get our food and our server never refilled my water. Please avoid server names Jessie.

    I had never eaten olives garden gluten free until today, it was the worst pasta ever! It was not fully cooked & it was pretty hard, barely any sauce on it. If u have to eat gluten free, id say stay away! I decided to give them 1 more chance, this time they had a few not gluten free noodles in it! Which made me really sick

    This is not recommend for celiac! Cross contamination is part of the problem here. Also, GF pasta is boiled in the same water as the wheat pasta.

    GF Menu was limited but after prompting waitress was able to order GF Pasta Marinara with Italian Sausage. The salad arrived without croutons (as ordered) with dressing on the side but without any notice that the dressing was NOT GF. I had to ask for GF dressing which took 10 minutes to get. Meal was tasty and I did not get glutenned. Special care must be taken when ordering from the unprepared wait staff.

    They are very accommodating with an electronic allergen menu. The Gluten Free pasta was good but because I am also lactose intolerant I was very limited to what it goes with. I went the basic meat sauce and it was better than nothing. Tasted better warmed over with a little basil and feta cheese added. Just don't forget to omit the crouton in the salad.

    They now have a "gluten sensitive" menu. But they have a note that anything fried or grilled has a higher chance of being contaminated....but they still list them all on the allergy menu?? The waitress didn't know or understand anything about the gluten "sensitive" items. I asked if the pasta is at least cooked in separate water from the regular pasta and she said "Probably". I asked for salad with no croutons per their menu, but asked for the to go cups of dressing because they are sealed and there's less of a chance for contamination and she acted like it was the end of the world to do such a thing and that she had to "check" to see if they even had any. Not the best experience and I most likely will NOT return .

    Normally I have a great experience here, but not tonight. I gave it 3 stars cause normally they are wonderful. I was not given my gf noodles. I asked the server to verify they were correct, because they didn't look like my usual (they were a different type) and she assured me they were. I thought they got in new pasta. I get the receipt and she didn't even ring it up gluten free. I called and talked to a manger when I started to get sick. Lots of confusion on his part on what a reaction to gluten is. I got an apology, a promise to educate the server and I get to pick up a gift card. Not worth it for how I feel!

    Amazing service. Waitress knew EXACTLY what to do for gluten free. Half hour later and no attack and my attacks always show up sooner. I feel great. Waitress definitely knew about gluten issues. Confirmed about gluten free foods instantly and knowledgely. She never offered anything with gluten in it to me and even stopped herself from asking "soup or salad" and changed it to "salad without croutons?". Said salad had no crouton crumbs or anything else. She put croutons on the side for the rest of the people at my table. There's unfortunately only a small gluten free menu, but what I had wasn't bad. I got the GF rotini pasta with chicken. Tasted very similar to regular pasta. Noodles were a little but overcooked, but it wasn't bad and understandable for cooks who aren't GF themselves. Barely a complaint because the dish really was good. I wish I knew the waitress's name because she was so great! Gah, they should wear name tags because she should handle all gluten sensitivity orders. I wish this was how all servers acted. Would make life so much easier. Definitely one of the most positive experiences I've had. Oh, and cross-contamination does not seem to be an issue! I get symptoms when it's cook in the same pot, but this definitely wasn't.

    There is a very small gluten free menu. I got the G free rotini and primavera sauce with grilled shrimp. Very tasty but the first time I broke out in hives. The second time I felt okay. I wonder if they boil pastas separately or not. I think cross contamination risk is high here.

    We told out server we needed a gluten free menu for my son. She was very nice and extremely helpful. When everyone else got breadsticks she brought him grapes. We asked her to hold the croutons and she brought them in a separate bowl, along with the dressing on the side because she wasn't sure if it was okay. The food tasted wonderful no problems with feeling sick or getting sick afterwards.

    Although they have a "gluten free" menu, it doesn't appear that the staff knows what's gluten free. Our waitress although nice, seemed very confused about gluten free items. The pasta is not very good and the shrimp was very small, basically like "seafood salad shrimp!" I was extremely disappointed and will not be back to Olive Garden again.

    HORRIBLE. We went to an Olive Garden in Sacramento a few weeks ago and it was okay. Then we went to a location in Palm Desert last night and it was awful. The non-Celiac people in the group all said their meals were NOT good, for various reasons. One of our group had ordered pasta in a cream sauce and had said it tasted like leftovers. He was up sick all night. I am Celiac and ordered the same dish I'd ordered in Sacramento (pasta primavera) from the very limited GF menu and it was disgusting. Totally over cooked noodles, the chicken was tough, and the vegetables were mushy. The waiter was vacant and entirely inattentive but very pre-occupied with his table of friends next to us. And I was sick all night and all day today so I'm pretty sure the noodles weren't GF at all. I'll never be going back to Olive Garden again.

    Olive Garden could do much better. You basically get this menu (there may be more, doubtful, but this the basic): Salad- no croutons or cheese, yes cheese! and watch your dressing. No bread, crackers or gluten free flat breads other Italian restaurants are now offering, got a hankering for bread, you're stuck on the gondola. No appetizers - everything is pre-made and cannot be altered? Yes, I asked. Only 1 gluten free pasta- sauce- add a meat- NO CHEESE! Eat up, because it falls apart when re-heated. Why cheese?? I found out that Olive Gardens dusts their cheese in flour to keep it from sticking/clumping together. AND No, I asked, they do not stock an alternative for the gluten free folk, not even a brick of parmesan, to grate fresh, from the local grocer. Grated in the can? that would work! No dessert Our server was very informative, (bless her) sympathetic and friendly, that is why OG got a 3*. No other server, we have encountered in the past, has had her knowledge concerning gluten. I won't be going back until Olive Garden expands their gluten free menu, it's just not worth the money.

    After telling our server that I was celiac she went to the back and got the manager. The manager talked with me made recommendations and I place my order for the sirloin, garlic Parmesan french fries and salad no croutons. When staff came to bring us our plates she immediately asked who is gluten-free? Then she said that they went through the whole procedure in the back to make my food. I enjoyed my food and had no reaction!

    Olive Garden has a GF menu, off which I ordered the grilled chicken caesar salad. The chicken was dry, no vegetables, just lettuce. No cheese offered. I guess Caesar salad doesn't usually come with vegetables, but when I asked for other vegetables, they were gracious and brought some.
