    Waiting for my salad, dissapointed with the menu, 4 options does not deserve to say they have a GF menu, and the 3 stappled worn out pages don't help either. Bummer.

    I appreciate that they have a dedicated gluten free menu but when I asked for it I was handed stained, stapled pieces of paper. Not much care was given. Choices were pretty skimpy but it was better than nothing. I ordered the salad without croutons and the gluten free pasta with marinara and chicken. Half way through eating the pasta I noticed a broken piece of fried breading from someone else's order (not one from my table either) obviously they have serious cross contamination issues. Since I have Hashimoto's and not Celiac I'm fortunate gluten just causes me inflammation and mental fog. No manager ever came to make sure my allergy order was good. I will not be back to this Olive Garden.

    Daughter with celiac LOVES the gluten free Mac and cheese. We checked the ingredients, and she never has a reaction, so this is a regular slot for us. We also love how the manager always comes to double check the cheese ingredients with us.

    The food is typical of Olive Garden. The gluten free menu is available on its Ziosk via an allergen menu. There aren't a ton of choices; however, what's available is decent. I ordered gluten free rotini with traditional marinara. That came with Olive Garden's unlimited salad, which I ordered without croutons. I'm also happy to report that it's delicious salad dressing is also GF. No complaints here about my meal in terms of food. What didn't impress me was my server. I was seated quickly and then greeted and my drink order taken by one server who said the server who was supposed to be taking care of my table was "a little busy." That was fine until "a little busy" turned into a 35-minute wait for food, no drink refills for my party, and a general impression of aloofness. My server did apologize when I called him out on forgetting refills he said he would get, but still...not impressed.

    The gluten free menu is two items, a house salad without croutons and a gluten free paste with the choice of a meat sauce or marina sauce. No gluten free appetizers of desserts. They have tons of pasta sauces but they only allow these two choices. They do not prepare gluten free dishes in a separate area so cross contamination is a very high risk

    I am celiac. I have eaten at this location quite often without any problem. Always get the salad and the pasta with meat sauce. They bring the salad dressing in the to-go packets to avoid cc which is nice. They seem to really understand when I question them about preparation etc. every visit I doublecheck that the pasta is cooked in its own water and has its own strainer. They never look at me funny when I ask.

    I wish I could give this place 0 stars! Apparently if a manager doesn't come to acknowledge that you have a good allergy, they didn't take you seriously. If they didn't take you seriously they use the same water and strainer = gluten pasta getting mixed in. Don't even get me started on the lack of flavor!

    It was made clear on the menu that they couldn't guarantee everything to be completely gluten-free. Our server was very good about asking what I could or couldn't eat after I ordered the gluten-free rotini. He asked if it was alright to put croutons on the salad and, when we were done, asked if it was alright to put my box with the rest of the food.

    I ate here twice on my vacation and discovered regular pasta shells in my dish both times. I did not alert anyone the first time as mistakes do happen, but when it happened a second time I alerted the manager. She was appalled and assured me they would make changes in the kitchen, alert senior management, she covered my entire bill and gave me a gift card (in hopes I'd return). I do believe they were genuine in making changes, and hopefully in the future this location will be safe for allergies.

    The waitress had no idea what GLUTEN even was. Ordered my salad with no croutons and found some. When I asked for the manager he acted like it was no big deal. He told my 10 yr old who has celiac that it's ok sweetie you will be OK. That was not OK with me. She was so miserable the rest of the night. We will not be back.

    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.
