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.
They do have there gluten free food clearly marked on menu. I was a little concerned cause I ordered a salad for an appetizer and said no croutons. It came with croutons. They exchanged it with no issues but that doesn't inspire alot of confidence. After eating my food I was okay. I would try this place again.
I ordered one of their newer dishes with GF pasta. I also had the GF soup option which was really good and a sweet tea. When my pasta came out, it looked delicious. I mixed it up and took a couple bites and realized it didn't taste right. it was then my waiter came running back saying that they mixed up the pasta and that wasn't GF pasta. They did remake my meal with the GF pasta but that's not going to fix the fact that I ingested some of the regular pasta noodles. They didn't discount my meal or anything for their mix up. Don't think I'm going to risk going back even though they claim to take food allergies/sensitivities seriously. Edit: 05/02/16 I put in a complaint to the Carrabba's website and the owner promptly called me. He's going to figure out where the mix up occurred and find a way to prevent this from occuring again. He's also going to refund my meal back onto my debt card. He's also invited me back to speak directly with him or his assistant about the issue, how to prevent it, and provide a safe meal.
Gluten free menu & understanding staff- food was delicious!
I came here 3 times, and was very pleased with the service, food, and gluten awareness. On my fourth visit I found a noodle on my plate after I had already eaten half of my food. The manager comped my meal, but as a celiac, it won't make up for the misery I expect tonight and the rest of the week. They claim to take food allergies "very seriously", but this experience leads me to believe otherwise. Again, great food, but maybe think twice if you are a true celiac or very sensitive.
dedicated gf menu and very knowledgeable staff
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.
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.
Staff was friendly, service was decent, gf items are clearly labeled although they state in their menu they do not have a dedicated kitchen space. See pictures!
