No GF munu, but manager took and personally delivered my order. She explained the menu what I can/cant have and the precautions they take to prevent CC.

Before going, I called and asked about how GF food was prepped and served. They told me it was cooked separately in a separate area of the kitchen and they were very careful and allergy safe.

My mom & I (both celiac) ordered 2 GF dishes. Right away, we were both super itchy. Then, we got diarrhea and stomach pain, along with hives/rash. We took Benadryl but my celiac people know that gluten can make us sick for days up to a week. Very unfortunate because they said they were allergy safe and clearly aren’t.

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!

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").

Just okay. I ordered a pasta alfredo dish and the pasta was quite limp and honestly a bit bland. I used to eat here before I went gluten free and the regular menu is much better than the GF one. Just not impressed with them.

I'm corn free as well as gluten free, so my options are even more limited. The chef comes out and talks through the menu with you. (The first chef was amazing, the second time, the chef spoke little English but understood my issues and his ingredients, so it was fine). All of their sauces are GF, so you do have lots of options. If you can eat the corn pasta, you pay the same price as normal eaters for the classic pasta dishes and get to take one home as well. This is the only restaurant I've been to in a long time that I have had no adverse effects after eating. They understand our needs and do a great job of accommodating!

horrible experience. no gluten free menu, chef comes out and talks to you but my pasta was from a box, i expected homemade, not one i could buy in the store. Chicken was ok..i can do better at home.. nothing to make me want to go back there. There are so many wonderful restuarants to choose from that i choose not to go back to one that was bad.

I have had only excellent experiences here. Always get to speak directly to the chef about my needs. Food is delicious and and I love that they have GF pasta (corn, last I checked). While I've really enjoyed everything I've had here, I would really like to see them expand their options. They only have one type of GF noodle so you can't really have things like spaghetti, angel hair, or varying types of noodles. It's always the same type of pasta, no matter what type the original dish would usually have had. Also not sure why they chose corn pasta since most GF people I know tend to prefer brown rice pasta. Oh well. All-in-all, I don't shy away from going here -- it's just not at the very top of my list since other places around have more options.

Phenomenal! Chef came out and offered gluten-free options. GF pasta us available upon request. Their second day take home option was excellent the next day. Impressed with chef's knowledge and suggestions.

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.
