Went to Carrabba‘s for the first time and was happy to see they had a gluten-free menu. I ordered a gluten-free pasta and was so excited to try it, but what I got was different than what I ordered. I spoke to the waitress and ended up having to speak with the manager because nobody had any idea what gluten even was. They thought dairy was gluten. The manager apologized and said that they had had their training, but she didn’t remember anything about it. When I finally got what I had ordered and began enjoying the dish, I discovered a different kind of pasta, mixed in with mine. Since they only have one type of gluten-free pasta, it was obviously a regular pasta mixed in with mine. I will not be going back. If it would have been my niece, she would have been in the hospital with that type of negligent cross-contamination!

Previously the baste used on all grill items had gluten in it. So you'd have to request no grill baste and have your food next to food with lots of grill baste. Carrabbas now has a GF grill baste(they use rice flour) for all the foods. Making a meal much safer. Good work Carrabbas!!

This was a disappointment. This is an Italian grill and many of the menu items are grilled. The problem is the baste they use has gluten; they don't have a dedecated gluten-free grill, so there's a big chance for cross contamination. You should search for non-grilled items. I had Polla Rosa Maria with salad and garlic mash potatoes. I was disappointed with the meal. I expected more flavor from the lemon sauce. The chicken was over cooked...dry and somewhat tough. There aren't many choices in St Augustine, so this might be a choice for a different place to eat. My wife's nongluten-free meal was lackluster ad well.

very very good food and seemed to be very careful about celiac disease. The kitchen is open and visible. If you wanted to you could sit at the "food bar" and watch them cook.

I got gf pasta with alfredo sauce, was so good. I loved carrabbas before going gf and it’s so nice to know I can have a safe option here. They use different pans and pots for gf pasta and I would assume they could put any sauce on the gf noodles but ask first of course
