This is one of the few restraunts I have never had an issue with! We visit this and the Frederick restaurant often (about once a week). I have severe allergies to wheat and have celiacs. Both locations have always been accommodating and professional. If you are looking for great tasting food and a gf safe place to eat I highly recommend this restaurant. They are also kid friend! We bring out daughters with us ages (5-14)!

We were in visiting at Easter and ate here. My 13 year old daughter is GF. However, she got very sick after eating at this location!! We have eaten several times at our local restaurant in PA and she was fine.

Super friendly staff and manager, but my NIMA detected a good amount of gluten. I should have expected that from a pasta place, oh well.

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.

They have a very good GF pasta and many of there dishes can be made with it. Have never got sick after eating here. They will pile on the Romano cheese and their minestrone soup is delicious

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.

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.

Do not eat here if you have celiac disease. The wait staff has no knowledge about it or about GF items on the menu. The “gluten free” dish I ordered contained gluten.

I ordered online and a young lady brought out our food shortly after we arrived. She put on gloves to bag our GF food and bagged it separately from the other food. She was AMAZING and the minestrone was delicious.

So many options. The staff is very knowledgeable. All pasta dishes except for the ravioli can be made gluten-free delicious as-well. All the seasonings are gluten-free so the entire grill no risk of getting sick. Will go back

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!

Have gluten free options on the normal menu. Lots of choices, specific GF pasta. The waitress was knowledgeable about celiac. I was able to get Chicken Alfredo with GF noodles. The chicken was really good. Looking forward to going back and trying something else.

I would say this place is Celiac friendly. We went last night with my toddler who has celiac and we told our server, Jacob, about her allergy. He assured me the cooks would change their gloves. She had the kids spaghetti (subbed with the GF pasta option, no meatball of course) and she also had bites of my minestrone soup, chicken Marsala, and steamed broccoli (all GF options they have). She had zero reactions and thought the food was yummy :) It’s nice to have a safe place to eat while traveling. Update: We visited again and she had the GF kids grilled chicken and broccoli and she loved it and no reaction! Just thought I would share.

We went to lunch today after I checked the menu on their website and it looked very gluten free with lots of options. It looked online that there was a separate menu with gluten free options. As soon as the waitress came over I knew I was in trouble. The pasta section of the menu was very confusing and made it appear that any of the items were available with gluten free pasta. The waitress had no clue and when I started to ask questions things got very uncomfortable. I thought she would go to the kitchen to ask about the questions I had but just guessed and when I told her I could get very sick if I got something with gluten in it, I just got a blank stare. One of the items she suggested to me was pasta with meatballs and when I was concerned that they had breadcrumbs in them she acknowledged that they probably did. Again, no offer to double check. We should have gotten up and left at that point. I ended up getting the Pasta Bolognese. My biggest concern was my salad dressing. At that point I was so frustrated with her that I didn't think to ask and I ate it anyway. Here's to hoping it was gluten free. I guess my biggest problem is that if you promote gluten free meals, educate your staff so they know what they're talking about. We'll never go back.

Got glutened badly here. The food tasted amazing, they seemed knowledgeable, and they were really kind and made us feel right at home. We wanted to think it would be okay, but cross contact happened somewhere. Sad day! I'm sure this is safe if you aren't celiac, however!

Our waitress was not very knowledgeable. All items are clearly marked as GF except the pasta which you have to ask your server about. I ordered the minestrone soup as a side, which was marked GF. I received my bowl with a large crouton floating in it. When we sent it back the manager came out to reassure us that our food would be gluten-free including the soup. Her explanation was that a crouton must have fallen in it. No apologies. Her reassurance was that her husband’s best friend works there and he’s gluten-free. Definitely could use some education here. As for the three main dishes that were served to us celiacs we seem to have not suffered no ill effects.

Not only was the waitress friendly and knowledgeable but the manager came over with a bag of their GF pasta to show me what was in it. He gave us the lowdown on their preparations for GF orders. We even bought a bag of the pasta they serve. Garofalos. Very good. Will definitely recommend and return.
