    As someone newly-diagnosed with celiac, I had a wonderful experience at Maggiano's. I was impressed that the servers immediately ask about food allergies. The chef came and spoke with us, then gave us his card, welcoming us to call him with any questions in the future. I was still able to order my favorite dish and found it delicious prepared GF. I was also impressed that our server offered me their GF dessert options. A great experience for someone new to all of this.

    Had a wonderful time here. Waitress and chef were highly helpful, friendly, and understanding. Had salad with no croutons dressing was naturally gluten free. As for my main meal was told by chef all sauces are naturally with out gluten the only thing they change is its cooked in a different pot with special gluten free noodles and prepared separate from all other meals in the kitchen. The meal was amazing and service great. Will be going back more often.

    We went to Maggianos this weekend, it was packed we made reservations and had to wait about 15 min, no big deal. When we sat down right away the waitress asked if we had any food allergies and I said yes in allergic to gluten, then she went on about I can have the chef come out or just order corn based noodles which was fine with me so I ordered spaghetti and I hate to say it but it was not good at all very dry and the noodles were hard :(. I've made corn based noodles many times and have had it at a few other places and had no problem, maybe next time we will try something else! On a good note they do not up charge you on having to order gf noodles, which no place should really we can't help we have Celiacs. Other then that the waitress was friendly but we waited for our drinks twice at least 10minutes but it was very busy!

    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.

They have more options for GF items than they did years ago. Although, still lacking on GF desserts, but you can always get Creme Brûlée. Who doesn't like that? The food was amazing.

    I called ahead and spoke with a chef who told me they use separate strainers, separate water to cook the pasta, separate tools when preparing the gf pasta. When we got there, I let the waiter know my daughter had celiac disease. The chef came out and he walked us through the whole menu. He made the meal himself and delivered my daughter’s meal himself. I could not have felt better about her meal and safety. No issues with getting sick. We will definitely be returning customers!

    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.

    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.
