Was in town for a conference and so glad I ate here! Not only was it delicious, there were SO many options and our server right off the bat asked if anyone had a food allergy. He then explained what I could eat or modifications that could be made, and upon ordered my salad (the chopped starter salad - which was DELICIOUS!) and our server suggested I leave off the crispy pancetta because even though it itself is GF, it was apparently cooked in a fryer shared with the calamari so he suggested I omit it from my salad which was so appreciated! Portions were huge, food was delicious, and atmosphere was neat. Definitely book a reservation ahead of time if you can - we had one and by the looks of the line it saved us a lot of time. Definitely would return here!

I’ve been here twice now. The food is great.. but the last time, when I was almost done eating, I found a piece of fettuccini in my dish. I asked if they have any pasta other than penne that is gluten free (since most places don’t) and the waitress confirmed they do not. I pointed out the piece of fettuccini and said “so this is not gluten free?” and she said no it’s not and apologized several times. I told her I’m not celiac so cross contamination won’t hurt me but it’d be much different if it happened to someone who was. She offered to remake the dish but I declined since I was practically done anyway but asked that she please address it with the staff. The manager came out seconds later and apologized repeatedly. He said he was extremely embarrassed and he had already ripped the cooks a new one. He said they pride themselves on accommodating food allergies so he was very angry that it happened. He removed the dish from the bill, comped two desserts my friend and I ordered, as well as an extra side my friend had. His response left me confident it’s not a common occurrence and it was/would be appropriately handled. I would be hesitant to go back if I were celiac, but since I’m only gluten sensitive, I will return. I wanted to share my experience though for those with celiac since this could be a major issue for them.

No dedicated GF menu, but most dishes can be prepared GF (except lasagna. Ravioli, etc.). Chef cane out to discuss recommendations and personally cooked my meal to avoid cc. Great experience!

Best GF pasta I’ve ever had. Waiter was knowledgeable about GF options. There were so many choices! I don’t have celiac, but it seemed to be celiac friendly. I would highly recommend if you are GF by choice. If you have celiac, perhaps call ahead to confirm.

The best service I've ever had. Server was knowledgeable about GF, checked with chef on anything he didn't know, was vigilant with food brought to the table by the runner. AND GF dessert. It was lunch, but I couldn't resist having some creme brûlée. It was very good (not great, but very good).

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.

They have gluten free ziti that you can sub for most of the pasta dishes, which is nice. I ordered the vegetable primavera, and it was decent - not the best. I will try a different dish if we go back.

Both times I ordered to go and got the wrong meal. They gave me the wrong sauce and forgot to add the grilled chicken both times. The pasta was good and I had no reaction, but very very salty. Probably won't go back

Got gluten full pasta when gluten free was ordered. My son was sick all night as a result. Waitstaff seem very under trained and did not have a clear understanding of what was GF. And what was not. Staff turns over so I wanted the next celiac customer to avoid this problem.

We ate here twice while in Philly for the marathon. Both times it was fabulous and the servers very friendly. They accommodated our gluten free and dairy free request with a smile.

I've been to this location 5 times now in my two stops to Philly...always a great staff and the food is always good. These people know their stuff and actually understand what it means to be gluten-free! I have no concerns for my safety in eating here. I return every year and each time I'm never let down.

My friend and I sat and ate at the bar. I told them that I couldn't eat gluten, and they were super helpful. They double checked things with the chef, and my salad, pasta, and creme brule were delicious.

Delicious. Waiter was helpful. Great pasta choices...had baked ziti . Salads were great. Will be going again. If u order light or typical (ie spaghetti or NOT seafood) you can get out of there with a drink (not alcohol) for under 20.00 per person... Prices range from 12.00 to 22.00 with some in lower 40.00 (lobster and steaks)

Went to Maggiano's, informed the hostess of our daughter's needs, she indicated it would be no problem. Our server, Krista was fantastic and immediately ask who was GF. Spoke directly to my daughter and ask if she would like the chef to come out to speak to her. He did and was extremely pleasant. He addressed my daughter's questions. Food was incredible, ambiance fantastic, service was phenomenal. I would highly recommend.

Wait staff sat us and asked if there were any allergies at the table and I told her I was celiac. She immediately had the chef come out to reassure me that they are very careful about cross contamination, he even brought my meal out to me specifically with a lid over it to mark the gluten free dish. I’m an extremely sensitive celiac and didn’t have any reaction to my meal! Highly recommend to all celiacs!!

A very nice setting for a fancy dinner out. The gluten free pre for pasta is seperate and safe. Not many options on the menu- only penne noodles. However they will customize your pasta any way with the sauces and toss ins. We have added chicken/shrimp/mushrooms veggies to Alfredo sauce and loved it. They also let you take home a GF dish for $5! Cheap way to feed a GF family for a 2nd meal. No gf bread . We ordered mussells for an appetizer and salads!

I ate here as a reception after my small wedding. I am a very sensitive celiac and I had no problems eating here! I had chicken Francese, made grilled, with gluten free penne in a lemon herb butter sauce. I am several days out and not sick at all! I will definitely be dining here again.
