In the past, a manager told me the chef changes gloves and aprons before preparing a gf meal. I also stress to the wait staff, that I have Celiac Disease and require a gf meal. They do offer a separate gluten free menu with a variety of options. I had a delicious gf pasta, with chicken and red pepper sauce this evening. I also ordered a tasty salad with a light dressing that was served cold and fresh! We have dined here a few times a year while visiting Austin. Never any issues with my meals. They have offered a separate gf menu for years. We have moved back to Austin and will continue to dine at Brio’s.

Best GF pasta in a restaurant. Excellent food, service. Good prices. Not oversized portions. Frequently have flour-less chocolate cake on the dessert tray. Update - no separate GF menu anymore. Fewer GF dishes and hard to find. Downgrading to 4 stars.

I had their gluten free pesto pasta and it was delicious. I had no reaction. The only thing was it was pretty overcooked. They have a gluten free menu and staff had good knowledge about it.

Lots of choices on the gluten free menu. I ordered Pasta Brio and my server went to talk to the chef to ensure no risk of cross contamination. They told me I was good to go, ate over an hour ago and I feel fine! Food was delicious!!

I have been off of gluten for 8 years and only been glutened severely twice. This place was one of the two times. I got chicken with potatoes and vegetables and somehow had an allergic reaction. Avoid this place at all costs

My 8 year old Celiac son got sick from eating here. We explained to the waiter multiple times how important it was to make his food safe but he still got sick. Will never eat here again.

They had many options including salads, gluten free pasta, steak, chicken and lamb chops. No gluten free bread so I sat watching my husband eat the delicious hot bread. There’s also no gluten free dessert but, with Cheesecake Factory right there, I didn’t care. The waitress got kinda pissed when I said it but they had fresh fruit for dessert at Brio. No thank you.

There gluten free pasta wasn't good. I would say it was gluten free but I expected it to be alot nicer than it was. It was just pasta out of a box.

The gf menu is more than than adequate with options. Pastas are excellent. I had pasta with criminology mushrooms, grilled chicken and a roasted red pepper sauce. Exceptional.

We had dinner here last night. They have a gluten free menu. At first, we were concerned at the server’s casual attitude. However, my gluten free pasta and wedge salad were fantastic. Then, our server brought us a Creme Brulee (the only gf dessert on the menu) on the house. I felt fine after and today as well. Highly recommend Brio.

Great gluten free dining experience! I loved eating here! Ate here twice so far. They have a gluten free menu. The first time I tried the gluten free pasta. The pasta had a great consistency and the sauce was very flavorful and delicious. The second visit I had the grilled salmon salad. The salmon was grilled on a wood smoke grill which gave it a wonderful flavor and it was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The salad was the freshest salad I have had at a restaurant in ages. The balsamic dressing was perfect with the salad and I enjoyed my meal so much. I was with two other people, one ordered angel hair pasta with chicken and raved about how flavorful it was. The other had the regular version of the salmon salad (which came with some crispy cracker-like strips so be sure to order the gluten free version if you get the salad) and she loved it also. I want to mention the ambiance. It was bright, roomy, relaxing and nicely decorated. It reminded me of being at a Disney resort (which is a great thing for me). I will definitely be going back soon! They have one gluten free dessert, Creme Brûlée, which was very creamy and delicious.

Separate GFree menu has somewhat limited selections. GFree pasta was more chewy than expected. Full bar. Ok for a chain but not anything special. Staff aware is a plus.

Nice chain restaurant that does have a separate gluten free menu. Not extensive, but enough to give you a choice. There are items on regular menu that can be modified as well.

Enjoyed my pasta here, was clearly gluten free noodles when compared to others at my table which made me feel safe. I don’t know if separate area is used for prep but I had not negative reaction.

The menu was small but sufficient. I can not eat sea food, taking at least half of the menu out, so the choices were limited. I wasn't that impressed for the cost. But, I didn't get sick, which is always great. My meal arrived correctly, without issues (on a busy Saturday evening) and my waiter knew exactly what to expect with my questions.

While Brio has. GF menu, they seem not to understand the concept. I was there on a not-so-busy Wednesday night. I asked for the GF menu and explained to the waiter I was celiac. I asked if there was a separate prep area and if gloves were changed. He looked at me as if I was speaking Klingon. He had no idea. And his reassurance of "If I mark it gluten free, it'll be fine" was really not assuring. Once my salmon salad came out, it had fried potato strings on it. I asked if those were prepared in a GF fryer and they were not. So, I had to wait another 25 minutes for my salad. Luckily, I did not get sick, but I have no confidence in this restaurant.

They have a GF menu with GF options (salads, chicken, steak, fish, pasta). The pasta dishes are just ok and very pricey for what you get ($19). There wasn't much chicken in either of our pastas, and the sauces were excessively salty. The waiter was simply mediocre, rushing us through our meal. It's nice to have this option, but it's expensive chain restaurant food. Disappointing.

There was a fairly long gluten free menu. The server was very knowledgeable and helpful. It was also reasonably priced which is nice.

Terrible gf options. Always get sick cross contamination constantly. I don't feel like anyone cares about medical issues at this particular Brio.

Gf options but I have a secondary food allergy that was also acknowledged by the server and then ignored by the kitchen - the item showed up on my plate. Manager and server were very apologetic and remade the dish but imo if one allergy warning is missed it may not be safe to order expecting gf here either.

They handed me a gluten free menu, but after ordering a chicken dish from this menu I got very sick. Won't chance it by returning.

Had a really delicious lobster tail risotto here, the wait staff chatted with me extensively about how they would accommodate me (celiacs) and made me feel really comfortable and confident that I was eating safely. I'm fairly sensitive and had no issues whatsoever after the meal!

I've been here a couple of times. The salads were fine, but I wouldn't trust the GF pasta. Maybe the kitchen just didn't take care, but life was not pleasant afterwards.

Recently diagnosed with a severe gluten and wheat allergy. I was finally feeling better and ate from their gluten free menu, was severely sick! Diarrhea within hours, stomach pain and bloating and skin rash later that night! Very disappointed but the good was delicious.

Our server was amazing and considerate, which is not always the case when your eating in a restaurant that automatically brings complimentary bread to the table :) I was pleased with the number of options on the GF menu; even includes dessert!

They have a GF symbol next to all gluten-free menu items. I ordered their gluten- free pasta which tasted great, but made me extremely sick afterwards. Do not recommend to anyone with Celiac Disease.

The food was cold on top and hot on bottom, like it was microwaved. The food had no flavor and the salmon and pasta were both over cooked. They did have a gluten menu but all the food we ate was awful.

Gluten free menu. Grilled Salmon, roasted veggies, and mashed potatoes was very good. The lady who took my order understood my needs as she said she had a close relative with Celiac. Very nice and understanding staff member.
