Had delicious meal and was told it was gluten free...was ill for days after from exposure. Wouldn’t recommend for celiacs.
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.
I have been to this location multiple times and have never gotten sick, the pasta has been perfectly cooked, and everything has great flavor. GF options are clearly marked and servers have at least been familiar with “celiac.” They have all happily answered my questions, asked me further questions, and went to ask the kitchen if they were unsure.
Horrible! I ordered the gluten free pasta with Alfredo sauce and told the waitress that I had celiac disease and she completely understood and put the order in. She comes back with the meals and I start eating and then I look and there’s a spaghetti noodle in my pasta! This is unacceptable and should never happen. Will not be eating at this place again.
Don’t order pasta unless you are VERY sure that your waiter has informed the kitchen. Found pieces of regular pasta mixed in, super unfortunate as they do have “gluten free” menu items.
I was curious to try their gluten free pasta. I made sure to ask if the pasta was cooked in it'ss own water, which the server assured me it was. I ordered a pasta dish with a red pepper tomato sauce and Italian sausage. Unfortunately, I still have not found a restaurant that knows how to cook gluten free pasta and it was no different here. The sauce and everything tasted great but the pasta was tough and stuck together. Thinking undercooked. But, I did not got sick and it still tasted good. The Italian salad was great, too.
Seemed knowledgeable, but... After letting my server know that I had Celiac and a dairy allergy, he acted as though he knew what to do. I had a very good GF pasta dish, but soon after I realized something was wrong. I'm sure it was cross contamination, but that doesn't help make me feel better. So for days. I'm swollen, have a migraine and the worst stomach pain you can imagine.
It was our 42nd wedding anniversary. Not only did we get a fantastic GF meal but the manager made up 2 complimentary desserts ... one for me and a chocolate one for my non celiac husband. Highly recommend this place for celiac friendly and just plain people friendly!
Knowledgeable staff and delicious GF pasta. Good proceedure, changing gloves, etc.
I would say this place is Celiac friendly. We went last night with my toddler who has celiac and we told our server, Jacob, about her allergy. He assured me the cooks would change their gloves. She had the kids spaghetti (subbed with the GF pasta option, no meatball of course) and she also had bites of my minestrone soup, chicken Marsala, and steamed broccoli (all GF options they have). She had zero reactions and thought the food was yummy :) It’s nice to have a safe place to eat while traveling.
This was a terrible experience I ordered the Jonny Rocco salad it was supposed to come with ricotta salantra cheese made with sheep milk they put ramano made with cows milk. I can’t have cows milk and I shared that with our waiter Cory. He kept saying he wasn’t responsible for what the kitchen does. I’d like to know who is because they remade the salad and turned the shrimp and scallops upside down. They were covered with cheese on the underside. What are they thinking or not. I know I’ll suffer the consequences tomorrow. I had shared all of my many allergies with Cory upon arrival. The manager never came to the table during all of this. Do not go to this Carrarabas restaurant they aim to poison you.
I like Carrabas bc it’s easy for everyone. Kids, grandparents, in laws and me especially. Everyone will be at least someone happy. Especially if I can have a cocktail :) There are a lot of GF options. The pasta feels heavy to me here. I’ve felt sick afterwards, not in a glutened type of way but more like I ate way to much food even if I didn’t. The chicken soup without pasta is delicious; love being able to order soup! There’s even a dessert option. Though it is ice cream with caramelized nuts, who am I to turn away a good dessert (it’s amazing). L Overall, it’s a well rounded menu.
Staff was friendly, service was decent, gf items are clearly labeled although they state in their menu they do not have a dedicated kitchen space. See pictures!
