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.

So grateful for Carraba's! My experience today was awesome, especially it being my first time here! Our server was very knowledgeable about gluten and Celiac. The menu is clear on what is GF and the options are endless.

Any pasta dish that they have can be made into a gluten free dish, since they offer gluten free noodles. Even the alfredo since they thicken their sauce with rice flour! You can also have the caesar salad, hold the crutons. This has easily become my new favorite Italian restaurant.

Love the new menu! The pork medallions were amazing! Do wish I could have enjoyed some bread with my family, an option for a pasta side would have made it a solid 5 stars.

Server was knowledgeable and had the kitchen clean and change gloves before food prep. No contamination for this celiac.

Third time eating here in 8 months. Every time I make it VERY CLEAR that I am allergic to dairy and gluten (yes I know the correct word is gluten “intolerant”). Today I was told all the meat sauces have gluten in the form of bread crumbs. Makes zero sense. Why have gluten free pasta if all I can have is plain tomato sauce? And it explains why I had a reaction the last two times I ate there, which I chalked up to something else. I am done with Carabbas since they obviously don’t take allergies as seriously as they say.

This chain had never been on our ‘celiac’ radar, but we’ve been missing out!! They are super knowledgeable, and almost everything ‘noodle’ on their menu can be made GF (I didn’t ask about the other things as we weren’t eating a non-noodle dish). My daughter got ‘fettuccine’ Alfredo with GF noodles and she said it was amazing! They don’t have GF bread for the oils, but maybe you can bring your own 🤷🏻‍♀
