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.

Ate here twice and got sick both times. Not for people with celiac. Was told they have a gluten free menu but they cook the food on the same grill as the gluten food. DO NOT EAT HERE!!!!!

Disappointed they didn't have gf pasta. They were gf aware but I didn't feel good after dinner most likely due to the richness of the food and not a gluten reaction.

The staff was nice and friendly. They took my allergy seriously. The have a button on their ordering system that automatically makes your whole order gluten free.

I've eaten here many times and feel safe enough.

I always ask for Shavon as our server. Shavon is one of the best servers anywhere! She's worked at this Carrabbas since it opened maybe 14 years ago. She is very familiar with celiac disease and is on top of it for taking care of the customer. For example, when she rings in my food, she puts the "gluten free" note like 6 times! She will also bring us our soups herself as another precaution.

Recently they changed their type of gluten-free pasta here and it's a bowtie pasta that cooks much better than the previous pasta.

A side of alfredo sauce doesn't cost extra. I sometimes ask for this for my broccoli.

Just ate here a few days ago. Very disappointed. When my plate arrived there was hardly any pasta on the plate. Maybe a quarter cup? Not cool when the entree is $24.99 for chicken. I should have said something but we waited so long for our food I didn’t want to hold up the rest of my party. They also changed the gf pasta to bowties. The other gf pasta was much better in my opinion. In addition, we watched the cook wash off the grill with pasta water. Ugh! Not sure I want to go back.

Carrabbas was one of my favorite places to eat before my celiac diagnosis. I was so excited to find out that many items on their menu are labeled gluten free. Even my favorite menu items! They did sub in gluten free pasta with their Alfredo for me and the pasta was over cooked and pasta sauce was incredibly bland BUT honestly I have never gone there for their pasta. I lean towards their steak and chicken dishes.

The salmon and GF pasta with the Tomato-basil-garlic sauce was great! Also the steak, mashed potatoes, and veggies are all delish!
