They say everything is from scratch and almost anything can be made GF. This is not true. They basically have one type of gluten free pasta that you can get with Alfredo or Marinara. This is what I ordered and I still got sick

Middle of covid & found GF chicken alfredo, baked ziti. 2nd time fornthisnon a month, no bad effects. Always hilarious when chef comes out & alfredo sauce is the big challenge. Chef is "I thought you were going to challenge me" 🤣 Nope caprise salad & chicken alfredo. Only negative is currently have only ziti noodles in GF.

This place was wonderful. The chef came out and talked with me because I have multiple allergies. I got beef medallions and potatoes that he fixed according to my allergies. The food was wonderful, waiter extremely nice and helpful.

This location does an extraordinary job ensuring that you have a safe experience at their restaurant. Chef took my order and hand delivered my salad, meal, and dessert!!! Went above and beyond to make sure I felt comfortable answering any and all questions regarding gluten free options and cross contamination....Would eat here 100 times over!!! Thank you!!!!!

Our appetizer and salad was excellent, but I was disappointed when my gf spaghetti turned out to be penne that was tough. They offered to remake but said it would be a bit tough again so we declined. They comped us for my meal and gave us a complimentary gf dessert which was excellent. We would go back but not for pasta. Our food in general was very good and staff was knowledgeable

I stopped in and ordered takeout for dinner. Had a long conversation with the takeout host about gluten free options. He was great and even checked with the kitchen on salad dressings. I got back to my hotel and my entree was regular spaghetti (easy to tell since it wasn't their GF penne shape). And there was a big hunk of bread in the bag.

Called the restaurant and they sent someone to my hotel with a GF entree 40 minutes later. I was super sick later that night. I might dine in at a different location but I'd never do take out again.

Absolutely amazing!!!! Traveled to Denver as my husband came here on business. The chef came right to my table and assisted me with ordering. He even gave me a complementary appetizer as I could not eat the rolls! Delicious gf pasta. Most if not all of the sauces are gf. One of the best experiences at a restaurant since I was diagnosed celiac 5 years ago!

went there a few weeks ago. gluten free penne substitute for most pasta dishes. was very good, replaced linguini with gluten free penne with no issue. I don't believe they have a separate kitchen or actively avoid contamination but it was good for my intolerance.

The chef came out and spoke to me about my options. I went with the gluten free Alfredo and it was delicious! No side effects.

Went her because it had high ratings on the GF app..the chef did come out and talked to me about my options but our server was completely oblivious to what Celiac Disease is...the chef made me feel like I was safe...but at 1am I was awoken by the side effects of being Glutenized...my daughter said she woke up at 2am by the side effects...I can't recommend a place that cross contaminated me...so if you read this and don't agree with my comments, please do not post that I am wrong on your post...I am a highly sensitive Celiac and have been for all my life. I am posting about my experience...which was not good! If you have ever experienced a true cross contaminated night on the bathroom floor...then you will understand what I am saying about this place...I do NOT recommend eating here and I will never go back!

I rarely eat at chain restaurants, but I had a gift card so I gave it a try...what a colossal disappointment!!! The GF noodles were dry and chewy and there was barely any sauce! The red tomato and olive oil sauces were both bland. You do get a large quantity for your money, but extremely poor quality. The staff was fairly helpful about accommodating my needs, but this place is truly a sorry excuse for an Italian restaurant. If you want high quality GF Italian food at a reasonable price, check out Abrucis and Saucy Noodle Ristorante!

This place is pretty good for a carb indulgence! Definitely worth the price as you get a plate of noodles to take home as well. Happy hour is great, tomatoes & mozzarella is always fresh and delicious.

The gluten free pasta texture could be better, it is a bit tough/cheesy.

Chef came out to talk over the GF options. We were more than happy with the meal! Chicken Marsala was yummy! We will definitely return. Bonus- our kids were thoroughly entertained by the magician (Tuesday nights only I think).

Best gluten free meal I've ever had!!! Our server, JC, and the Sous Chef, Chon Guy, gave us five star service!!! Many gluten free options in each course! They served multiple kinds of GF pasta and sauces, and their house dressing was delicious! Large portions we couldn't finish in one sitting so JC packed them up for us to go completely separated with the GF meals labeled! Very knowledgable staff! I wish we had a Maggiano's in Alaska!

Got “glutened” twice here from the salad which was supposedly prepared gluten free in a separate area.

They have removed most of their gluten free items from the menu. Now the need to do special modifications to be gluten free.

So impressed!! I was recently diagnosed with celiacs and haven’t had much eating out experience because I have been afraid of getting sick. When we told the hostess, she sent the chef out to personally assure us he could accommodate my allergy. He was so kind and my food was delicious. I will absolutely go back. Amazing experience!!

We’ve go to Maggiano’s at The Rim about once a year. This time, they had the chef come speak with me. He assured me that a steak, mashed potatoes, and broccoli were a good safe choice with very little chance of CC. Everything was super yummy, but I’m sick as a dog. In the past, the steak hasn’t had a sauce. This did. I asked if it was GF and was told it was. So either they don’t understand GF or there’s a ton of CC :-( Either way, it stinks :-( This is trying to force me to rate the GF items I tried…but they weren’t GF apparently.
