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!!

It's hit or miss, got GF pasta, a piece if regular pasta was stuck to the bottom of the plate. They were like, oh well. I was sick.

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.

Meal was very good. When we went recently they had only gf penne to replace in dishes. I’d had the impression they had more gf pasta options so my gf’ers were disappointed initially but food was good in the end. You just have to ask what dishes can be made gf and sub the gf penne for whatever traditional pasta is in the dish

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.

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.
