Wait staff is trained to ask if there are an allergies. A chef came to the table to explain what can be altered to be gluten free (celiac safe). Pretty much all the pasta dishes can be gluten free. I ordered 2 dishes. Shrimp alfredo and shrimp fra diavolo. I got my nima sensor and tested both. Shrimp fra diavolo came back gluten free but the shrimp alfredo did not.

They can substitute gluten free pasta, but there are so many other parts of the dish and some contain gluten. The menu doesn't provide any clarity and the staff was not helpful, and why should they have to recite the menu to me? Just indicate in the menu was can be gf with the substitution.

That said, the steak I got was not that great.

They do in fact have gluten-free choices, and when you say that you have a gluten allergy, they have the actual chef that prepares your food come tableside. Excellent for the celiac. We visited there today and I had a dish called chicken français. Well done meal!!! All of their sauces are gluten-free except for one, and they do in fact have gluten-free pastas as well.

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!!

I had been kind of worried about going to a Maggiano's because of the reviews but our usual Italian place lost power so we decided to try it. I felt really good about the fact that the staff knew the protocol, from the hostess to the waiter and chef. To be safe I went for a non pasta dish and ordered the filet and risotto which was delicious! I didn't have any issues and I can usually tell pretty quickly after starting to eat. I had a good experience.

I've had to stop going. One time, perfect the next something like a regular noodle mixed in to the dish.

They made a good effort. The chef came out to recommend gluten free options and understood the importance to those with celiac. I was very impressed. But that soon turned to disappointment when I had eaten a few bites of my main dish and realized that they had put the wrong sauce on it. By then it was already too late. Just not good enough.

Best place to eat with food allergies, wonderful food and large portions. They make everything from scratch and the chef checks with you to make sure everything is correct as ordered.

I've eaten here three times this last time they were just as careful taking my order.

It was really good, but I noticed I was having a reaction.

There was a piece of regular pasta stuck to the bottom of my plate. It looked like they didn't clean the plate very well.

They didn't charge me, but it took for ever to get everyone their check and by then I was miserable.

Amazing food and excellent service! They do not have a separate GF menu, but they have GF penne to substitute with any dish! When you let your waiter know you have an allergy, the Chef personally comes to your table for you to place your order! Creme Brûlée is also GF (but not dairy-free), you can eat here without any worry of getting sick! Definitely worth a visit!

Chef will come to your table to discuss GF options. No designated dishes. Taste is ok. Maybe if they made special dishes besides a plate of GF pasta with sauce, I would enjoy it more. For GF Italian food go to Biaggis. Huge GF menu with GF bread.

No GF menu, but the waiter gave me some options that could be made GF. I ordered the Chicken Marsala with mashed potatoes. Someone from the kitchen came out and explained the modifications that they were going to make to the dish to make GF. Tasted great and didn’t get sick.

Luckily I knew what the gluten free noodles looked like before, because they served me regular pasta. I asked my server and she did immediately apologize and took the food to be replaced. Thankfully I did not eat it.

Beautiful Italian restaurant. My server was very kind and knowledgeable about the Gluten Free options. They don’t have a separate menu or any indications of any dishes being GF on the menu so you rely on your server. She suggested I get the GF Taylor Street Baked Ziti and it was delicious! Definitely coming back here when I get the chance.
