Changed the menu fall of 2015, now offering gluten-free pasta that beats out Olive Garden any day. Gluten-free menu available, staff is always helpful. Unfortunately they got rid of the most delicious gluten-free dessert, and now the only option is plain ice cream, so they lost a star
Excellent gluten free pasta and they were extremely accommodating and very knowledgeable! Love it when the staff is well trained and educated and the manager comes out to check on you! Will definitely be my Italian Restaurant of choice from now on!
Ordered the gluten free pasta and told the waiter that I had a gluten allergy. He said that they would make the gluten free pasta from scratch and that it would take longer and that the entire meal would be gluten free. The pasta was delicious but I have been sick since. Not sure if it was the pasta, the sauce, the chicken or a combination. Will not be returning
We had a great GF dining experience here for lunch. The owner Monty came and reassured us that his kitchen staff is well-trained in GF cooking and described how they change gloves and cooking utensils and bowls to avoid cross-contamination. They also dedicate a section of their grill to GF grilling. After spending several minutes with the owner, we felt confident this meal would be a good one. The GF soup made for a perfect appetizer on a cold October with just a slight spicyness on the back of the throat. Our entrees were the Chicken Bryan and the Chicken Trio with steamed spinach and broccoli. The chicken was perfectly tender and the cheese was so creamy! If we weren't so stuffed, we'd have tried the dessert, which gives us something to look forward to next time! I highly recommend giving this place a try, particularly if you've had a bad experience at other Carraba's. Monty is the new owner as of a year ago and is himself a chef. He takes GF dining seriously and it shows. I suggest speaking with him if you choose to dine here, or ask to speak with Tommy Holland (manager) or TC Largay (kitchen manager).
I have eaten here safely many times. Very safe for celiacs. Lots of gf options. One of my favorites.
I have been to this location multiple times and have never gotten sick, the pasta has been perfectly cooked, and everything has great flavor. GF options are clearly marked and servers have at least been familiar with “celiac.” They have all happily answered my questions, asked me further questions, and went to ask the kitchen if they were unsure.
Horrible! I ordered the gluten free pasta with Alfredo sauce and told the waitress that I had celiac disease and she completely understood and put the order in. She comes back with the meals and I start eating and then I look and there’s a spaghetti noodle in my pasta! This is unacceptable and should never happen. Will not be eating at this place again.
Don’t order pasta unless you are VERY sure that your waiter has informed the kitchen. Found pieces of regular pasta mixed in, super unfortunate as they do have “gluten free” menu items.
I was curious to try their gluten free pasta. I made sure to ask if the pasta was cooked in it'ss own water, which the server assured me it was. I ordered a pasta dish with a red pepper tomato sauce and Italian sausage. Unfortunately, I still have not found a restaurant that knows how to cook gluten free pasta and it was no different here. The sauce and everything tasted great but the pasta was tough and stuck together. Thinking undercooked. But, I did not got sick and it still tasted good. The Italian salad was great, too.
Seemed knowledgeable, but... After letting my server know that I had Celiac and a dairy allergy, he acted as though he knew what to do. I had a very good GF pasta dish, but soon after I realized something was wrong. I'm sure it was cross contamination, but that doesn't help make me feel better. So for days. I'm swollen, have a migraine and the worst stomach pain you can imagine.
It was our 42nd wedding anniversary. Not only did we get a fantastic GF meal but the manager made up 2 complimentary desserts ... one for me and a chocolate one for my non celiac husband. Highly recommend this place for celiac friendly and just plain people friendly!
Knowledgeable staff and delicious GF pasta. Good proceedure, changing gloves, etc.
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.
This was a terrible experience I ordered the Jonny Rocco salad it was supposed to come with ricotta salantra cheese made with sheep milk they put ramano made with cows milk. I can’t have cows milk and I shared that with our waiter Cory. He kept saying he wasn’t responsible for what the kitchen does. I’d like to know who is because they remade the salad and turned the shrimp and scallops upside down. They were covered with cheese on the underside. What are they thinking or not. I know I’ll suffer the consequences tomorrow. I had shared all of my many allergies with Cory upon arrival. The manager never came to the table during all of this. Do not go to this Carrarabas restaurant they aim to poison you.
I like Carrabas bc it’s easy for everyone. Kids, grandparents, in laws and me especially. Everyone will be at least someone happy. Especially if I can have a cocktail :) There are a lot of GF options. The pasta feels heavy to me here. I’ve felt sick afterwards, not in a glutened type of way but more like I ate way to much food even if I didn’t. The chicken soup without pasta is delicious; love being able to order soup! There’s even a dessert option. Though it is ice cream with caramelized nuts, who am I to turn away a good dessert (it’s amazing). L Overall, it’s a well rounded menu.
