    For an Italian restaurant, their pasta options and selections on their GF menu are very limited.

    Exactly 2 Gluten Free Pasta options, only red sauce and basically the same dish one just has basil and one has onion. No salad dressing options so I hope you like Italian.

    Worst meal ever. Pasta disgusting- overcooked and overpriced for quality. If I could give NO stars I would. Save yourself the time and money.

    I had better luck combining items from the regular menu with GF pasta, than I did with the GF menu. All they offer is over cooked GF pasta with red sauce. I could stay home for that. Overall poor understanding of GF and how cooking GF pasta isn't the same as regular pasta. This is a restaurant that makes me feel sad about all the things I can't eat.

    They do not understand how to cook gluten free pasta. I have been there twice and each time my pasta is hard as a rock and tastes disgusting. I will NEVER go back to any Olive Garden again until they are more knowledgable on how to cook gf items.

    Gluten free menu but staff seemed uninformed about cross-contamination issues. Gluten free pasta dish was brought out on the same tray as all the other dishes that contained gluten and they were practically spilling into one another. Should've stopped right there. I ate it anyway. Regretted it later.

    I'm gluten and dairy free. No matter what I get there I always end up sick. I talked to my sister who used to work at an Olive Garden, she said dairy ends up in almost everything. So don't be afraid to double check every aspect of your meal first.

    Horrible horrible horrible!!! I ordered one of their GF pasta dishes and it literally tasted like cardboard. I asked for more sauce, I added tons of salt/pepper...and nothing made it even just a little better. For my first time ever, I had to send a plate back and refuse to pay for it. The server didn't even care, and no manager ever came to address the issue. I will never eat there again. Yuck! The only good thing about it is that as a Celiac I didn't get sick from the few bites I had.

    The GF menu was limited which is understandable with a chain restaurant. I ordered the Chicken Caesar Salad. While it came in a large bowl, there was very little salad. It had too much dressing and some of the Romaine lettuce was wilted and limp. Plus the chicken was cold. I have eaten this same menu item at other Olive Garden restaurants and it was much better. The seevice was good and the waiter was knowledgeable.

    I got my order "to go" by ordering online. Although is was slightly difficult to find the gluten free menu while placing my order, once I found it it was easy. Once I got to Olive Garden to pick up my order the associate, Brenda, was very courteous and thorough going through the items making sure they were exactly what I ordered.

    I visited the Paducah KY, Olive Garden last night. I specifically asked if the gluten free pasta was cooked separately from regular pasta. I was assured that it was. After eating what was supposed to be gluten free rotini primavera I became very ill and thought I was going to have to make a trip to the ER. I understand accidents happen but I suspect that the pasta I was given was not in fact gluten free. Possibly by oversight, hopefully not intentional negligence. Beware if you eat here.

    Had a carry out pasta from here. Had some problems. Not sure why as I know there GF food is frozen and cooked separately. Perhaps when I noticed they had packed me regular bread sticks I should have been warry, but my receipt stated my carryout was gluten free.

    The pasta they use is the old rice flour type that smells bad and tastes gummy. I tried it anyway, and ended up having a strong and quick reaction. Nothing like scrambling for the Benadryl two bites in, and then being sick for days later. My best guess is that they did not guard against cross contamination, since they were extremely poorly trained for gluten/wheat allergies. For example, they made me a fresh salad when I advised them of my allergy, but covered it in croutons. I will not be back.

    I love their gluten free pasta!! I think it's cooked so well and it takes like real (non gluten) pasta! I could eat it forever! But if you want more options for being gluten free I would not choose to eat here, definitely a very limited selection of choices.

    I was severely glutened here after telling the waiters I have celiac. I had to send my plate back twice because the noodles were obviously not gluten free. After all that, they charged us exta for my meal because it was gluten free!

    The best summation I can give for the gluten free options here is "mehhhh". They only have 1 kind of gluten free pasta, a penne I believe, and it was very dry and bland. Their "gluten free menu" had nothing to write home about and only included a handful of items, such as the penne and salad.

    I would rate them a 0 if the app would process my review. The gluten free menu is extremely limited and the promotions are exclusive to those that can consume gluten. When I ordered the gluten free rotinni I noticed mid meal that their minestrone noodles had been mixed in. The manager apologized profusely and gave us a gift card but that didn't prevent me from becoming violently ill later in the night.

    Like another reviewer I was served mushy pasta which is just plain horrible. The next time I went, it took almost an hour and a half to prepare my food which they blamed on my gf needs and my desire for well-done meat. I didn't feel very welcomed here and probably will not return.

    Their gluten free pasta tastes great and they are very helpful in making arrangements for me, they bring out croutons separate from the salad, less bread sticks so it's not as tempting (lol), and most dishes can be substituted with gluten free pasta.

    Olive Garden has always been very accommodating for our gluten free needs. The servers have always been knowledgeable about ingredients and making sure we order safely. I'm not sure about the cross contamination risk, but as a sensitive celiac I've never gotten sick here when dining with my non-gluten free family.

    Has a GF menu with house salad 2 pasta options and a herb crusted salmon and steak with asparagus. I went with the house salad and asked for grilled chicken on the side (chicken was disgusting but they were nice enough to take it off our bill) and a side of asparagus since I didn't get the steak (came our dry with nothing on it which was a disappointment so I asked for olive oil and Parmesan). Not a place id go for date night/on purpose again but if a group of friends were going id be able to eat something.

    For lunch My non gf son ate soup, salad, and bread sticks bottomless for $7.99, my gf son ate a small Caesar with no croutons for $8.99 and the only three things they had on the menu for gluten intolerant (because they will not guarantee gf) were full dinner for $22. I am not sure I think that for eating less food and paying more money it was worth it! I will take my money elsewhere next time.

    The gluten Free menu consisted of gluten free rice pasta with select sauces, very disappointing. The waiter was very understanding about gluten free and did everything he knew to make it delightful (why I gave them 3 stars). But I went home feeling sick... Maybe cross-contamination. Overall it was 13.45 for a bowl of ok pasta and chicken on top. Not the bet choice. I felt sick afterwards.

    Their salad is so good! There are so many new gf pastas available now, it would be nice if OG would check them out. Their pasta was exciting and 'good' enough years ago when celiac was not well known, yet now, many markets and restaurants have ones that don't taste gf, which makes theirs taste like cardboard. There food is prepared properly, a huge concern, and so they still get five stars.
