Menu had multiple choices and everything was clearly marked on the menu. They fully accommodated the children's menu to substitute for gf pasta. My 6 yr old daughter loved it! I'm not celiac but I ordered off the gf menu so she could try more things. I had the gf minestrone which was delicious and the pork tenderloin which was also great. She especially loved the mashed potatoes! I would definitely recommend this place.

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!

Ordered online, part of the order was mama’s Sicilian chicken soup (ordered without noodles), soup contained a single noodle. When I called to talk to a manager they stated I needed to call when I place my order to properly express that I need gluten-free. I don’t know why putting it in the special instructions on the online order was not sufficient. Deduced that they do not take allergies seriously.
