    Terribly slow service and GF noodles weren't cooked all the way! Very disappointed with a restaurant I used to like.

    Olive Garden's gf menu is practically a joke. You can get pasta (not tasty pasta mind you, but at least it's something) with some meat and seasonings. You can get pasta with some meat and some slightly different seasonings. You can get pasta with some meat and some sauce. Or you can get the grill - chicken, beef, or chicken and beef. While the grill is very tasty and filling, the pastas are pretty lacking, bland, and not filling. However, the grill grows old real fast. THIS location used to be really bad: the chef told me to my face that anyone who ordered gf, dairy free, peppers free (like I do), or any other alterations was bull$h!t and he would not make changes for them. He might say they were whatever-free, but they weren't. He said he thought it was all a load of crap and that all those people were faking it. Well, that didn't last long. I complained to the manager about it, and the chef was fired. Now, it's a great place to eat. The parking's a little hard to navigate, but the service is wonderful. The staff are mostly knowledgeable, and helpful. However, the food is just so blah.

    Disappointing. One pasta option. No gluten free breadsticks. My daughter with a gluten intolerance feels left out from options.

    There is a special gluten free menu with about 2-3 entrees. the options are great. I have been there twice and had the pasta primavera both times. It has zuchinni and rich tomato sauce over gf pasta. I get my own salad without crutons. Every one I am with enjoys their meals there and now I can as well. I detracted a star because the menu is kind of small.

    Very limited GF menu, and since I am also off processed dairy, there was only 1 choice, Salmon. it unfortunately is farm raised.

    I visited the Olive Garden and was happy to see they had a few GF options. The waitress did not seem very knowledgeable on those options as she messed up my husbands GF order. Luckily he's only sensitive so he was ok with it. I got a pasta dish with shrimp and it was absolutely disgusting. The pasta was hard and the whole dish overall had no taste to it. It turned out to be bland shrimp with marinara sauce over hard corn pasta. I did not feel the love in that dish! The salad was good, but I kept being offered breadsticks which annoyed me since she knew I could not have them. I have been to many restaurants that offer GF that actually show they care. I just wish places like Olive Garden wouldn't offer GF options until they are ready to offer good food and have their waiters/waitresses be knowledgeable on allergies.

    The waitress made a great effort to make sure that myself and my young niece with a gluten allergy were well cared for, but there was disagreement as to what we could and could not eat. The menu said that the sausage is GF and could be added to the GF rotini and vegetable marinara, but the cooks said it wasn't. She was worried, so they decided to cook the sausage separately and plate it separately so I could decide whether or not I was willing to try it... It made me uneasy as the cooks and printed menu were in disagreement. We still don't know whether or not the sausage is or is not GF, but at least they cared enough to make sure I knew there was a risk. She also took the time to make sure myself and my niece had a safe bowl of salad to ourselves. The sausage-less pasta was pretty good overall, although the noodles did fall apart rather easily. The vegetables were appropriately cooked as well. My only question is who do you believe--the printed menu or the cooks and wait staff??

    Very limited gf menu. Also very expensive for a small meal with few side options. Not even a gf soup. Why would minestrone and alfredo sauce have flour?

    I ate here last week, half way through my dish of 'gluten free noodles' I started finding fettuccini noodles all mixed in.. They were wrapped around the rotini noodles and such. I ended up getting very sick that night. I would not recommend or just check your dish before eating..

    Olive Garden can't seem to get it together for those of us who are GF. Terrible GF pasta. I've had better at a grocery store. They overcook the overpriced pasta so it's nothing but mush. Ugh.

    Horrible. They used to have a mixed grill on the menu for twice the price of regular menu items. Once that disappeared off the menu I ordered gluten free pasta with broccoli as a side. Got so sick about 4 hours later and my misery lasted all night. Couldn't pay me to eat there again.

    This was one of my favorite places to eat GF. Their staff was always very friendly and understanding and the food is AMAZING!!!! BUT I will no longer eat there... The last time I found a gluten noodle in my dish, I asked the waitress if they served this type of noodle in a GF option, she said no and took it back to have them remake it. No harm done, I understand when eating out I am taking the chance of getting CC and that is on me. The manager came over and apologized and promised me a new plate. About 90 sec later she came back with the same plate I had sent back. The chicken was cut up as I had cut up the last one (they slice it in long slices and don't mix it in the sauce and noodles and that is how they serve it). I asked the manager about it when I saw that it was the same plate and she said that she watched them cut the chicken and assured me it was a new plate. She didn't seem to have any confidence in what she was saying so after deciding there was no way they cooked a brand new plate in around 90 seconds I chose not to eat if and haven't returned. This is probably a one in a million chance so I would def give it a try! Just be careful!

    I am sitting here at midnight with my 8 year old son who just got glutened and is throwing up. What started out as hopeful with a very attentive server has become a disaster. Towards the end of the meal we noticed little bits of spaghetti mixed in with his GF pasta. it wasn't much but as we all know, it doesn't take much. You mean to tell me you can't even cook the pasta in its own water and keep it separated from other pasta for 10 minutes? Ridiculous!

    waitress wanted to be helpful, but couldn't find me a gf menu. she came out with a tablet and let me pick from that but she obviously didn't know the gf options. my salad had crouton chunks hiding in the olives, so I'm glad I picked through it first. not confidence inspiring. feeling a little ill now.

    Not good. I had to ask 3 times to get a gluten free menu. When I made my choice I emphasized "gluten free" twice. Food tasted good but good... But I was sick within 20 minutes of finishing... Obviously contaminated. This was the third and last time I will try this place. I let the manager know.

    Olive Garden was my most favorite restaurant before Celiac Disease. so saying I missed it was an understatement! I was so excited to learn they now offer gluten free pasta. I went with my husband and kids and met other family there. I didn't have to feel like a burden for not being able to eat anything! long story short, the gf pasta was hard as a rock in many places and wayyyyy overcooked! so totally ruined my meal. So I filled up on the salad without croutons and of course no bread sticks. I didn't get sick but was very worried.

    Would not suggest this place to celiacs or gluten sensitive. The waitress seemed to not know what gluten free was other than she knew they had a gf menu. After I ordered the rotini primavera, the manager came out to tell me that the pasta did not cook up to their quality standards. So I picked chicken and shrimp with veggies. It was good, but I got sick. I'll never go there again.

    They offer to substitute gluten free rotini for any pasta dish on the menu. It was excellent with the spicy marinara sauce. Even without cheese, it was delicious(I can't have dairy either). Easy to go gluten free with the salad and house dressing. Leave out the croutons. And I find the service at this location is exemplary.

    Our waiter was helpful, until he forgot and left croutons on the 2nd salad. There are only 4 options on the menu - 2 pasta sauces (both on rotini) a steak and a salmon. Fingers crossed to no cross contamination. There are a lot of better options for gluten free dining.
