Limited selections, but we've had good experiences with the mizithra. Staff knowledge is hit and miss.
not a separate gluten free menu. too much trouble to order. and are rude to you when you don't understand what there is gf.
Very willing to accommodate for Gluten free with any entree and delicious food. I would love to see variety in options for appetizers and dessert :)
I am obsessed with this place. I have never gotten sick before. The only reason it gets a 4 is for not offering GF bread or a GF appetizer.
OSF has all the policies and accommodations to provide a safe dining experience for those have celiac. But when I went in, about halfway through my meal I found a piece if angel hair pasta in my gf noodles. I woke up in the middle if the night doubled over in abdominal pain. I went back the next day to talk to the manager about the careless way in which my food was prepared. She was not in the least bit apologetic. I told her that I suspected my noodles were cooked in contaminated water. She's said there was no way that could have happened and went on and on about what they do to prevent cross contamination and seemed almost unwilling to admit that it was their fault. I stated that it doesn't matter how many policies are in place if the employees don't follow them, and very obviously, one of her cooks didn't follow gf prep practice and I suffered the consequences. Her final and very insincere response was, "Well, I'm sorry you got sick but we do everything we possibly can to prevent that." needless to say, I won't go back.
I have worked at this location and have eaten there several times a week with no problems. Love the mizthra!
I eat here often. The pasta is decent, but I love their marinara sauce. No GF bread yet, but I can do without it. I'm not that sensitive, so I don't know about cross-contamination, but the meal is delicious.
They're food is tasty and we love The Old Spaghetti Factory, but they glutenize my husband EVERY time. We can't risk eating at this chain anymore, at least not in Utah. Both locations in Utah are VERY bad at contaminating my husband. We've marked them off our list for good.
This place is great! There are SP few locations where you can get gluten free pasta. Not to mention there are different sauces to pick from. the staff is very knowledgable and friendly. It's a great place to enjoy some great gluten free Italian.
I was really excited to eat here, but I got so sick from cross contamination. I ordered the chicken Alfredo off of the gluten free menu. It was so delicious & I about died over their Alfredo sauce. Maybe I just went on a bad day, but it was around 3 on a Wednesday when there was no crowd.
GF menu, I ordered the pasta with meat sauce. Pasta wasn't cooked enough and was crunchy and grainy. Meat sauce looked and tasted awful. Really disappointed. Two stars only for having GF options. Also, waiter told me that the lemon they put in drinks has gluten in it- yuck!!
Both myself and my 9 year old daughter are gluten intolerant and we found the staff knowledgeable. We did not get sick. The food was pleasant, not incredible, but pleasant. I had noodles, sauce and italian sausage. She had alfredo with chicken in it. We also had the ice cream for dessert. Overall, a nice experience and we would eat there again.
Although they have a GF menu, the meal seems incomplete without a nice crusty bread (there are many great options they could stock, especially from Mariposa Bakery). The same problem with the pasta, only corkscrew pasta, no matter the dish, which makes the clam's linguine somehow not work. Again there are multiple GF pastas available on the market that they could stock. The atmosphere is festive and the service very good, if they update to a fuller GF menu they are all set. For now, too limited and GF seems like an afterthought.
I was really disappointed by the service, the gal who seated us said I had to go to the front desk to get a gluten free menu, it is already on the menu... Then, it specifically says that cross contamination may occur. Fortunately I don't have celiac's so I just gambled that I would feel ok. So far so good. Service was terrible and I would not recommend if you have celiac's!
They don't have a lot of items to choose. The waiter was very helpful and the food was good.
I'm always afraid to have gf pasta in a restaurant because of cross-contamination possibilities, but we ate here last week anyway, and it was delicious! The menu is clearly marked and my server and the hostess were both very knowledgeable about what was gf. My server even verified the cooking process to ease my mind. I was on vacation and did not want to get sick. It was simple, but yummy food. Best of all, no sickness later. And they give you ice cream for dessert. GF of course!
We ate here for a team banquet while in town playing on the outdoor ice rink at Raley Field in Sacramento. The wait staff was very knowledgeable about gluten issues and explained how they make their GF pasta away from the other dishes. They even brought me a salad and explained that it was made without exposure to croutons. So far, no reactions. I took Glutenease before the meal, so that may have helped eliminate minor cross contamination, if there was any. Now I have another option to PF Changs when in Sacramento. Good job OSF.
I just tried this place tonight and i thought i was doing well by eating off of the gluten free menu but i guess that wasn't good enough and now i am having a bad reaction. I had the house salad with balsamic vinaigrette without croutons. And some cheesy gluten free pasta. I don't know where i went wrong or someone may have made a mistake in the kitchen. Or maybe i had a bread crumb...i don't know but i don't believe i can eat here again.
They have a gluten friendly menu, not gluten free. My server informed me. They cook the pasta and broccoli in the same water as the regular pasta. not good for someone with an allergy or celiac. I was wondering why I was getting sick and couldn't figure it out.
No complaints from a gluten perspective, but I definitely wouldn't want to eat here again given how bad and dull the food was. (I had the baked chicken.) My dining companions had soup that seemed as though it might have come out of a packet, and shouldn't the cheese on pasta be Parmesan? What it was instead was something fake tasting. Really pretty dreadful. Even BJs have better pasta (and that is not saying much: I definitely don't recommend BJs!). Sorry not to be more positive.
I had been at other locations of the Old Spaghetti Factory and was able to order items. But this location does not have enough ventilation so for a person who is allergic to wheat it is impossible to eat there. Just sitting at the table before eating I had an allergic reaction just smelling the bread products. I had to rush out in only about 2 minutes of sitting. My asthma is triggered by wheat in the air.
I really like the old spaghetti factory. They have gluten-free items on a portion of their menu. Their gluten-free pasta is pretty tasty, and I like that I can have most of the sauces. A great deal for a three course meal, with the starter salad and dessert. The Decour is dark and full of large pieces of furniture and lighting fixtures. The service is good too.
Their gluten free Pasta w/ Browned butter and Mesithra cheese is good...or get manager's favorite: half with meat sauce. My biggest disappointment is that they will no longer make the Appetiser: Broccoli with Mesithra cheese gf. I hope management at headquarters reads this.
I went with s huge group of people. I love OSF but this is the first time I'd been with gluten allergies. The server gave me info on some GF choices and they have a nice GF menu. I got the Mizithra cheese and brown butter with GF pasta. Was very yummy. I ordered a side of chicken breast that was on the GF menu. I ate it but thought it may have had a light bread batter, looked like skin though. When I got the bill it said breaded chicken so I'm not sure now. Hadn't had any problems though. Just be sure to check, especially when they are busy.
Ate here about 6 months ago. Staff was nice and seemed knowledgeable but food was mediocre and had a stomach ache after. :(
Went there last night and requested gluten free mac and cheese for my 3 year old daughter and made it very clear to the waitress that it was an allergy issue. She's been throwing up all day, so I guess they don't care or they're just not careful about contamination. Won't be going back, that's for damned sure.
The few times I have eaten here for business meetings I have been fine. The pasta they use is alright, but not something to write home about. The staff is knowledgeable and does a good job at helping out their customers. 4 stars only because it's chain restaurant Italian, but for what it is it is good.
