The gf options are visible in the menu. Spaghetti with meatballs was not an option so I ordered spaghetti pomodore. Could choose soup or salad as a side dish. I ordered minestrone vegetable soup. While eating it (!) I discovered meatballs in my soup. The waiter went to check with the kitchen and it turned out they served the wrong soup! They apoligized and immediately replaced it for vegetable soup, but I was scared to eat anything after this mistake. After the soup I got pasta, not spaghetti. I'm done with this place. Do yourself a favour and eat somewhere else.
The wait staff was knowledgeable about gluten and very attentive. There is a separate gluten free menu which always makes me feel more comfortable. My one criticism is that they don't carry gluten free pasta or bread.
The gluten free options for chicken are fantastic, try the chicken trio with 3 small breasts made different ways with choice of side. They now have gluten free pasta with gluten free alfredo sauce it was fantastic. For an appetizer try the mozzarella caprise, they use fantastic Burrata mozzarella which has cream and grape tomatoes, to die for. This is one of the few places with a wonderful variety of gluten free choices not the same old same old. The chicken trio may not be on the menu but if you ask they will make it for you.
We had dinner here one night as a last minute plan. I have Celiac and am extremely sensitive to cross-contamination, but had no issues here. Our waitress was very helpful and our food was delicious. It was my first trip to any Carrabas and I was skeptical about avoiding cross-contamination at a restaurant that served so much "gluten," but I was very pleasantly surprised.
lots of glutten free options including pasta. after verifying the gf pasta was prepared separately, my daughter ordered some. however it came out as regular pasta. fortunately she questioned it, and the waiter was very apologetic and got her new meal. that could have been a real disaster for us.
We haven't had any issues here (yet). It's always scary for us in these places. But, no issues with mix ups and we've never gotten sick. It's good food, too! Just a little pricey for what you get IMO, but I appreciate having a safe place close to home to go out to eat at!
They have GF items listed on the menu. Just remember to tell them that you need gf and not just ordering an item that is listed as gf to be safe! The gf pasta is really yummy. Some of the best I have had.
There was a rogue crouton tossed with my Caesar salad and under the greens so of course I didn't notice it until I had eaten half of it. Other than that I think the food was good, but I'll probably be sick later from the cross contamination of the salad so it's hard to say. I know it was an accident, but they should have a food prep station further away since they claim to be so gluten friendly. Also, the waitress kept asking me how the free bread was, so I didn't get a great overall impression of their gluten knowledge.
They were very careful with our families order and were very well trained. They understood the need to use a separate pot to boil the GF pasta and a seperate colindar. They also carried out the gf meals separately. There were a lot of options on the menu too. I only wish they had gf bread and desserts.
Almost half if not more than half of the menu if gluten free! When I ordered the gluten free pasta, the chef came to personally deliver it and let me know how seriously they take gluten allergies. He made sure to mention that they took extra precautions when cooking my food to ensure cross contamination. I was extremely impressed and had no reaction at all. Easily a place I will be going back to!
Seriously? This place claims gluten free but totally is not aware. I get it that the waitress didn't have a clue, but when the chef sends me a bowl of gluten free pasta.... with linguini in the bottom from the previously botched order. Yea I'm still sitting here and am sick already. I hope I vomit because I'll do it on the table.
Good pasta, but our waiter was terrible. I had to wait an extra 30 mins to get my food because he messed up my order. When I did finally get the food, the rest of my party had finished. He had no gluten free knowledge.
Our server had no knowledge of gluten free food. My daughter wanted pasta with sauce. suggested whole grain pasta as an option. I hopped online since the menu did not indicate what sauces were GF, but that was not accurate. After 3 or 4 trips back to the kitchen we settled on GF pasta with pomodoro which was good enough and does not seem to have made her sick.
Catherine, our server was very knowledgeable of the gluten-free options and made sure the cooks knew not cross contaminate. The Italian grilled chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and a house salad was delicious! I will definitely be back! A+ for the service!
I've eaten here twice now, and both times have been incredible! The staff is very knowledgeable about celiac and was extremely accommodating. Both times our servers have allowed me to make my own meals by mixing and matching the gluten-free items on the menu. I was assured that my meals were cooked on freshly cleaned pans, separate from gluten-containing ingredients. I'm also dairy-free, and my waitress went above and beyond to make sure no cheese or butter went on my plate. She said someone in the kitchen spilled cheese on my original dish, so she had the chef remake it AND gave me a $20 gift card for the "inconvenience." Amazing service, didn't feel sick at all after. Highly recommend!
