Had a great GF meal with my family. Went on a Monday night and enjoyed the special for $13-15 / person. Soup or salad, entree and dessert (some of the fancier ones cost $2 more). Service was quick (ask for Chase as the sever). Found 1 regular noodle in the GF pasta dish. None of the 3 of us who are GF got sick. GF minestrone soup & Gelato were also yummy! Just make you let them know you are GF bc pasta can be made both ways (reg and GF). Other family members who ordered off the regular menu left satisfied. Husband and son enjoyed the soft bread and olive oil dipping sauce.

I only discovered I was allergic to wheat and peanuts approximately two weeks ago. I have always been allergic to dairy. There has been so much of a struggle to find a restaurant that has options for me with my trifecta of allergies. A lot of gluten-free places will use gluten-free ingredients, but cook on a surface that they just made wheat-filled bread on...etc. Or they tell me to eat a salad and all of their dressings have dairy in it. I was beginning to get really depressed as it is close to the holidays and I am giving up all of my favorite things (cookies, pasta, bread) without finding that great of gluten-sensitive alternatives, especially when a lot of those alternatives substitute a peanut-base for their bonding agent. Well, I went to Carrabba's tonight, 12/18/15 and was astounded by what they offered for my allergies. My server was very attentive to my needs and as they make everything from scratch, I was able to get the Sicilian Soup without the pasta in it. I also got a salad with a dressing that didn't have dairy/peanuts/wheat in it, and was able to eat pretty much anything else on the menu I wanted (I went with the Chianti Chicken). They also recently added to their menu the option to change any pasta to gluten-free pasta so you could potentially eat anything they have there (unless you have other allergies like me). Thank you thank you thank you Carrabba's!

I have eaten here several times and have never been sick. There are some tasty options and some good specials. With one exception the service has been excellent.

Service was poor, not a lot of good options, food was bad. I ordered a salad and when they messed up and put something in it I requested not to be added bc of an allergy, they took it back and did not remake it but PICKED THAT INGREDIENT OUT. Terrible.

The waiter was really concerned and worried about my wheat allergy and went out of the way to make sure all of my food was gluten free! I had amazing GF pasta in Alfredo sauce!

I was initially impressed. There were many gluten free options that were clearly labeled on the menu. However, the children’s menu did not have any gluten free labels on it. My wheat allergic son wanted Mac and cheese (aka cheesy penne) off the kids’ menu. I explained to the server that he had an allergy and asked if the meal would be gluten free if we subbed gluten free pasta in the dish. The waiter said it could be prepared gluten free. After a few bites of his cheesy pasta, my son started having a reaction. The pasta he had wasn’t penne so I think that actually was the gluten free pasta but I’m not sure what made him sick. Also, there was a hair in his pasta. Also, the kitchen lost our appetizer order so we didn’t get that until our dinner came. On the positive side, my dairy allergic son was able to eat without an issue. Not the best experience though. Also, it does need to be noted that the menu does state that no guarantees can be made that their gluten free menu is truly gluten free and won’t be cross contaminated. This was our first Carraba’s visit and may not be typical of other locations.

I have a soy allergy, too, so they offered to clean their grill and cook a chicken breast with salt & pepper... the mashed potatoes & asparagus were safe. I left a little bloated, so there may have been some contamination, but for mild allergies, we did great & they really did do their best!
