    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.

    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!

    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!

    I read below that if you call in advance they will make meatballs GF but I called and that is not the case. However we enjoyed our meal. The chef came out to talk to us about our order and pretty much let us make up what we wanted (we are also dairy free). Portions were large. Service was excellent and attentive. Pasta was broken apart, however, which happens sometimes with rice/corn pasta.

    I unfortunately have Celiac disease, so finding safe restaurants can be a challenge. Maggiano's has always prided itself on being extremely careful with cross contamination and has numerous gluten free options. Last Friday (5/25/18) I went out do dinner with my family at this location, which we have done about 10 times in the past year. I didn't finish my meal (GF ziti) so I had the server put it in a take home box. Several days later I went to eat my left overs and found a piece of regular spaghetti in it. For those who haven't eaten at Maggiano's and gotten GF pasta, they only have one type of GF pasta and it isn't spaghetti. This is the SECOND time this has happened at this location in the past 6 months. The previous time the chef and manager came out and really bent over backwards to apologize and told me it was a new employee, etc. They assured me that this would not happen again and that the problem has been corrected. Well now that this has happened again I see that the problem is now a pattern. My family and I really love this restaurant but it just isn't safe. As much as it saddens me I would highly recommend that anyone with a serious gluten allergy or someone with Celiac disease avoid eating at this particular location.

    Bland generic pasta only served in penne, gluten free pasta needs to be cooked differently and served differenu than resilient regular pasta- it completely falls apart and is flarvorless in sauce. You can do better.

    I ordered my Chicken Romano to be gluten free. The Sous chef came out and when I asked if that dish could be made gluten free he said yes. The dish came and had no Parmesan or any type of breading, just a piece of grilled chicken. Why wouldn’t the chef tell me that the chicken would be absolutely plain? I would have ordered something else!

    Chef always comes to table to ensure that you are comfortable with preparation methods. I do not recommend ordering pasta, as I do not believe they (or anyone rew) are careful enough with cross contamination between pastas on the stove. I have never had a reaction, and I am extremely sensitive to contamination.

    The first time I ate here was fine. The second time they were out of GF rolls so they asked if they could comp by sending me an additional pasta home. I thought that was great and ordered the veggie penne with GF noodles (obvs). Well they sent me home with WHEAT pasta!!!! I ate 1/4 of the dish before realizing something was wrong. The noodles looked exactly the same as the GF option except orange, and the texture was softer. I became extremely ill that night and the entire next day. My boyfriend ate the rest of the dish and confirmed it was exactly the same as what he has eaten at the restaurant (ie wheat noodles). I'm not sure if I want to eat here again. GF control is pretty good for dining in, but I'll never do take out again. The gluten free rolls are awful, imo and not worth the calories. They could buy any brand of rolls literally anywhere and they would taste better. Not sure why they haven't caught on yet... they also take FOREVER to come out even though they supposedly start them as soon as you sit down.

    I ordered a caprese salad and entree after the chef came out and spoke with me about how they could accommodate someone with celiac. The caprese salad came back cross contaminated after using my Nima gluten sensor but the entree was safe and tested gluten free. They stated the salads are prepared around other gluten ingredients and the entree was separate so my review is great for the entree and poor for my salad. I'll go again but am not totally confident it's celiac friendly so I'll bring my gluten tester to be sure. The staff seemed to really care and take interest in making the accommodations as well which made me feel comfortable.

    I didn’t get a reaction and I am a celiac. The sauces were good but the pasta was tough. Not very good. Feel like I probably could have made better at home, but maybe this was because I got it to go. Maybe it would have been better if we ate there? Staff was very nice. Knew the GF menu. All sauces and dressings GF. Priced fairly. Probably won’t return just cause I didn’t feel like it was that yummy but I’m not disappointed we went.

    I would not recommend this establishment for take-out. The person taking my order seemed unaware of gluten containing ingredients for pasta dishes (does the sausage contain gluten? I still don't know!) When we went to pick up our meals, we found that my gluten free meal was actually standard pasta- and with the wrong sauce. Without apology, they "corrected" the dish - again with standard pasta. Finally, after 45 minutes of waiting on the correct gluten free meal, we were given a bag full of (gluten containing) bread as an apology ("to apologize").

    The last 2 times I've been here, they screwed up my order and had to remake my food. The chef will come out for show and pretty much just nod if the dish can be made gluten free, but they aren't terribly diligent. Take a close look at your dish and make sure they used the GF penne (pointy and grooved) and not the wheat rigatoni (smooth and cylindrical).

    *updated* I initially had fabulous experiences here, but after eating successfully 3-4 times, I got very sick 2 times in a row. The first time I was accidentally served regular pasta and I thought it tasted too good to be gluten free but I ate it and became incredibly sick. The second time I believe it was cross contamination. Both times I called the restaurant. After the first incident, the management was incredibly apologetic. After the second, they blamed me as being too sensitive to eat out because they can't control if a waiter touches bread and then touches my water glass. I thought that was a bit far fetched and insulting. Unfortunately, I no longer feel comfortable eating here.

    Went with 8 other people, so we ordered Family Style. The waiter brought me a Gluten-Free version of the 3 of the items we ordered. The sautéed calamari was good. The Grilled Chicken Piccata was lacking flavor, it just needed a little more lemon sauce. The Braised Beef with Gluten-Free Penne instead of Pappardelle was excellent, I don’t know what brand of gluten-free pasta they used but it was the best I’ve ever had. For dessert, the waiter brought me a dish of strawberries since we ordered Cheesecake and Hit Apple Crostata. The only item I couldn’t eat was the Chef’s Italian Antipasti and I chose not to eat the Salmon.
