    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!

    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.

Speaking of desserts- the creme brûlée was gluten free and it was outstanding, probably the best tasting I have EVER had. The food here is fresh, cooked to order, the staff is friendly, GF knowledgeable, and everything we had was so tasty. BTW they will accommodate many food allergies, ie. eggs, milk, nuts etc. Highly recommend this place even if you have to drive a little while to get there because it is so worth it.

My waiter(Abraham) was great and told me that the kitchen was prepared and knowledgeable in preparing gluten free food and had a dedicated workspace. He told me the chef would be right out to discuss my order. Eric the chef and I spoke about what I would be ordering and how it would be prepared. I ordered the Taylor Street Pasta with sausage and it was fantastic. Later on Abraham treated my table with creme brûlée (also gluten free ) for dessert. The manager, Charles was also wonderful and very attentive. Great experience. Will go back.

    The service was completely lackluster. The GM Matt came to our table and raved about how they have a full scratch kitchen and can make anything safe. My friend and I feel confident that this could be a good experience. Fast forward to dinner, my friend orders the Johnny's Carbonara with Gluten free pasta and has them add grilled chicken. It looks good, a few bites in something seems off, but he doesn't think anything of it. He is almost done and noticed there is a piece of fettuccine mixed in with his gluten free penne! Apparently someone in the kitchen wasn't paying attention when they made his meal! We had the manager come over and while they did comp our entire meal, that didn't help the fact that he spent the next several hours between the toilet and the bed. We will never be going back to any Maggiano's again. Not worth the risk!

    Another excellent visit. Enjoyed Gluten-Free pasta and sauce served in hearty portion. Chef visits your table prior to ordering to discuss menu options. Great value if you order selected pasta dishes that are two for one (one to enjoy in restaurant and one to take home, or two as take out). The dining room is always packed (be sure to make a reservation) because the food is outstanding. 3-1-2016 review: 5 stars. Great GF Italian food in restaurant or to go. GF pasta and sauces are definitely some of the best I have ever had (they are so good that even non-allergic people will eat them and say they are good). I have eaten here multiple times and have never had a reaction. Highly recommended.

    I agreed to eat here because I heard they are cautious. I asked the waitress what she suggested for someone with celiac and she assured me they could alter nearly anything to accommodate me. She even told me the chef would come out to discuss options but he never did. I ordered a simple pasta and substituted with GF. When eating my leftovers, I found about 10 stray (gluten-full) spaghetti noodles and ended up throwing it out. I was hoping they'd be careful in the kitchen like they said, but I won't be going back.

    When we said we were celiac, the chef came out himself to review the menu with us and make sure he could accommodate our needs. He helped is pick an appetizer - baked calamari instead of fried. They substitute gf penne for the pasta options. My daughter had the meat sauce and I had Shrimp Fra diavola both of which were delicious! All sauces are made in house and gluten free. We will definitely come back.
