I ordered 2 gluten free pasta dishes: one for me (not celiac) and one for my daughter who is celiac. I usually order mine gf too in case she wants to change with me. She didn’t get sick but only ate the salad. When I got to the bottom of my pasta dish there were a few regular pasta noodles beneath the gf noodles. I’m thankful my daughter didn’t eat her main course & would definitely not recommend this location to a celiac.
They have a gluten free pasta that can be used with a lot of their entrees. I had ordered their meatball & meat sauce with GF noodles and they immediately called to let me know the meatballs have some bread in them so they aren’t GF. They gave me extra meat sauce instead and it was so delicious! Their quality of ingredients seem so much better than Olive Garden’s exact entree and it was a bigger portion.
I have eaten here safely many times. Very safe for celiacs. Lots of gf options. One of my favorites. *EDIT- After a discussion about GF needs and accommodations, I ended up with a crouton in my salad that I didn’t see until I had eaten 2/3 of it. I had to rush home and force myself to throw up. :(
As a very sensitive Celiac, Italian food restaurants cause me the most anxiety. I have been glutened by GF pasta at restaurants, too many times to mention. I reluctantly took my chances here. So happy I did. I had absolutely no reaction to the pasta or the chicken that I chose. The taste was by far the best GF pasta that I have eaten at a restaurant. It wasn’t overcooked or mushy. There were a lot of GF options on the menu. Very pleased with my meal and will definitely return.
The staff is knowledgeable. There are a good amount of gluten free options. Food is great!
Never had a problem, food was delicious!
Easy to use menus marked with gluten free options, Pasta available. Multiple options available. Even had options for me with multiple allergies that tasted good without much hassle, server knew the ingredients in everything I ask d about.
I have eaten here twice. Each time the staff has been knowledgeable about food allergies. I have celiac as well as other food sensitivities and they went above and beyond. The manager on duty revisited with me about my food choices. They bartender visited with me about my drink choices. It’s been 12 hours and no issues. So I also believe they did there job in the kitchen regarding cross contamination. I had the salmon with gf fettuccine on the side and a salad with oil and balsamic vinegar with a yummy prickly pear margarita. Like the rest of you, eating out can be stressful. They lifted the stress away with their attention to my concerns and the delicious food. Will be back to this location.
Clearly marked gf options, great flavor (got the sirloin and mashed potatoes with house salad), decent prices for a sit down place in an airport. No gf desserts.
I love the pasta Carrara (they use gf macaroni like noodles) but the problem with these noodles is the Alfredo sauce doesn’t absorb in them so you are virtually eating a plain noodle. They do however have plenty of gf options and I have never gotten sick from eating here!
I specifically asked waitress about their gluten free menu and asked over and over if my dish was Gluten free since it looked no different from their fettucini dishes. Oh did I regret eating it. Within an hour my stomach was in pain and I was so dizzy even when laying down, I felt so sick. Don't trust the kitchen staff's judgement, they clearly do not know the difference.
The manager was super knowledgeable and took the time to stop by our table and make sure all was okay. All enjoyed the food and the gf noodles were good!
Nice selection of gluten free items listed on regular menu. Our server was very knowledgeble about food allergies and assured us of the precautions used to prevent cross contamination. Had the Chicken Bryan with sides of Cesar salad and broccoli. Great tasting food, great service and no problems afterwards.
Gave 3 stars ONLY bc Limited options for GF but was surprised at how nice their Gf pasta was. They were terrified to make me their a la vodka sauce but after talking with chef it was bc he wasn’t sure about vodka. Even though I am a celiac I do not have a problem with full distilled vodka.
This chain has taken all kinds of steps to make gluten free dining possible. I have always been a huge fan of Carrabbas and when they changed their baste for the chicken to use rice flour instead of wheat flour many years ago I was impressed. However, this location boils the GF pasta in with the regular pasta water and my dish the last several times has had fettuccine noodles in with my GF pasta. UNACCEPTABLE!! You all need to retrain kitchen staff and get your shit together!
Menu items are not marked GF but it states that GF pasta is available and waitstaff told us that the pasta sauces are GF.
I went to Carabba’s for my Aunt’s birthday because it’s her favorite restaurant. They had “gluten free items” marked on the menu. However, the server didn’t even know what gluten was, not to mention celiac disease. I ordered and off their gluten free selections and made it clear I was sensitive to cross contamination. I ended up getting very sick. The food was alright, but not anything worth getting sick over.
Gluten free menu items clearly marked on the menu. Staff seemed mostly knowledge, but couldn't be sure if the bolognese sauce was GF or not, so they advised me to stick with the pomodoro. Pasta was very good and I did not get sick, but 4 stars for the sauce selection.
Went to Carrabbas for the lunch special. Get one lunch, second one free. While waiting for my niece. The gentlemen (Chris) that helped asked what I would like to drink. I ordered water and lemon. I told him if he had a gluten free beer I would have ordered one. He did a turn and said one moment I might have what you want. Brought out a Redbridge Beer!!! Yayyy!!! So on top of having a delicious lunch and great customer service from Chris, I got a beer!!! Can’t go wrong eating here that’s for sure. Chicken Bryan is my favorite for dinner. Never have gotten sick . I do have celiac.
Ordered carry out last night. Despite specifying that I have a gluten allergy I found three pieces of normal penne pasta mixed into my dish. Their kitchen staff obviously do not take allergens seriously nor do they have proper protocol in place to accommodate celiac guests. Do not go here.
I eat at the Cape Coral location quite often and have never had an issue. I always make the staff aware I have Celiac & a wheat allergy. My reaction is respiratory so any wheat or gluten cross contamination is quickly evident.
I ordered their gf pasta with spaghetti sauce. Within 10 minutes of eating, I was starting to get itchy from having gluten. They wouldn’t confirm but I think they used the same water to boil my pasta in as regular pasta. Very disappointed!
