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.
Had a great meal here tonight! The chef came out to speak to me and was very knowledgeable and accommodating. He walked me through their kitchen procedures and was very reassuring. I would definitely eat here again! Very yummy!
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).
Very celiac friendly!
Great food, staff was concerned about my celiac options, came back several times to check with me. I highly recommend stopping by for a wonderful meal.
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
Service was great! But not to many choices for gluten free! Food was ok..
Awesome gluten free meal, actually had ravioli for the first time in three years. Even got dessert, waitress was awesome, I highly recommend.
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.
Fabulous service, food and accommodations . All sauces gluten free they have gluten free pasta and will make any dish you see gluten free if possible.
One type of pasta, good marinara sauce. Good. No salad. Have been to others in this chain that give a free gluten brownie. Not even on the menu. gypsy
Had the salmon with lemon butter sauce and spinach, super delicious!! As a side I ordered GF pasta with marinara sauce. The pasta was good but I had a reaction to the sauce. There isn't a GF menu, however their policy is that the chef will always come out to reassure you that what you ordered is truly GF
Did not have the same sparkling experience here as the other review. Yes, they can put GF penne in most pasta dishes. But our server gave me no further information about what was safe to eat, and there is no GF menu. I was not offered a visit from the chef. Basically, “we have GF penne, ready to order?” Actually, in general, the service was really bad. Disappointing and would not return to this location.
Plenty of time taken to make sure my gluten free choices come to me perfect. Staff always very helpful. Love the different choices I have. Only thing that could be added to this restaurant to make it perfect in my eyes is some gluten free bread.
Staff are knowledgeable and there were a lot of gluten free options. Not marked on the menu, but communicate with your waiter and they will help you customize your meal. Everything is made to order and it is super easy to modify dishes. The gnocchi can not be made gf because they are coated in flour, but other then that they have tons of options. They do have gf pasta and starter chips, in place of bread.
Outstanding service and flavour! Huge portions! ALL staff is very well trained in handling food allergies! I ordered an Italian tossed salad(no croutons) and their signature “rigatoni D” with gluten free penne—it was sooo good:) Gluten-free pasta or whole wheat penne available for substitution (570/690 cal) $19.75 Our Famous Rigatoni "D"® Herb-Roasted Chicken, Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, Marsala Cream Sauce (1610 cal)
Amazing!!! Best pasta ever and I didn’t react. (I am a celiac for all wondering)
Went to a private party, they were serving a family style menu. I told the server of my needs. The chef came out and discussed my needs. He let me know he would personally make my food. When they brought a course out, he brought mine separate. I had gf pasta, salad, spinach artichoke dip, all excellent, and when they were eating cake, he made me a creme Brule. Way to go!
Delicious gluten-free pasta - server made sure to clarify it was for an allergy and had chef come by our table - with lots of different options. Friendly service and good wait times for drinks and food. Love the classic pasta dinner option (take 2nd pasta home)
Well, first time writing review...but had to after eating here. My husband and I both have gluten issues(Celiac and Intolerance) ....staff was incredibly knowledgeable and they have “from scratch” kitchen, most everything on the menu can be made gluten free....GF rolls were incredible ....can’t recommend high enough!
I had a fantastic Alfredo here! A rare dish to get while eating out for celiacs. It did not disappoint! Chef came out and waiter told me about 90% of the menu could be made gluten free.
The staff was very helpful and very pleasant. When I asked the waitress if they had a gluten free menu, she stated that all dishes could be made with gluten free pasta. She then offered to have the chef to come out to our table. I had seen this on another review on here, but it really happened. The executive chef, yes one listed on their website for this location, came out and explained everything. He said all but the ravioli and lasagne could be made for me and all sauces were gluten free as well. He took my part of our order himself with notes on the ticket, then waitress came back to take remainder of party. He was very patient and respectful of my needs. Definitely would recommend this chain and location to anyone.
They have a dedicated, separate kitchen! The food is fantastic, and you can order anything on the menu and explain that it needs to be gluten-free. They take dietary issues seriously. All dishes are made from scratch and modified to be completely safe. I was extremely impressed!
We’ve been frequent visitors of Maggianos for a few years now. My mom and I both have gluten and dairy allergies. Usually this is a tall order, but since the restaurant makes from scratch food in the back and the chefs are extremely knowledgeable and accommodating it’s such an amazing experience. They offer gluten and dairy free pasta and biscuits! The chef always comes out to talk with us about what we want and how he can accommodate those meals to our allergies. This gives us so many choices and it’s affordable to boot! We are there yesterday and I’m sure we’ll be back soon! I can’t say enough good things about eating at Maggianos!
The staff was extremely kind and the chef came out to greet our table to give us confidence that our Celiac needs were being met. It was a lovely gesture. My only reason for 4 stars and not 5 was the drinks were a little slow to arrive. But we would absolutely return. All of the food, GF and not GF was delicious!
The chef came to our table and informed us about gluten-free options. They have separate space for making gluten-free food. Celiac friendly. No reaction after the meal. Really nice food!
Our appetizer and salad was excellent, but I was disappointed when my gf spaghetti turned out to be penne that was tough. They offered to remake but said it would be a bit tough again so we declined. They comped us for my meal and gave us a complimentary gf dessert which was excellent. We would go back but not for pasta. Our food in general was very good and staff was knowledgeable
Food was amazingly delicious and attention to gluten free was fantastic.
Visiting area and I had never been to one before. Waiter told me anything on menu can be made gf! I had chicken Parmigiana. It was grilled chicken with the sauce and cheese. It was excellent. I was also given a side of gf pasta. It came out hard. They made me a new one. It was cooked more but still quite ale dente so I didn’t really eat very much. The waiter offered me a free crepe brûlée for being so patient. (I didn’t mention the pasta second time). The Creme Brûlée was wonderful! I would come again but probably ask to substitute vegetables or a potato for the pasta.
I talked to the manager and chef before eating here. They assured me they can accommodate gluten free. When I got there I told the waitress I needed to order gluten free and she had the chef come out and speak with me. He told me all of my options and my pasta was amazing!
I read below that if you call in advance they will make meatballs GF but I called and that is not the case. However we enjoyed our meal. The chef came out to talk to us about our order and pretty much let us make up what we wanted (we are also dairy free). Portions were large. Service was excellent and attentive. Pasta was broken apart, however, which happens sometimes with rice/corn pasta.
I unfortunately have Celiac disease, so finding safe restaurants can be a challenge. Maggiano's has always prided itself on being extremely careful with cross contamination and has numerous gluten free options. Last Friday (5/25/18) I went out do dinner with my family at this location, which we have done about 10 times in the past year. I didn't finish my meal (GF ziti) so I had the server put it in a take home box. Several days later I went to eat my left overs and found a piece of regular spaghetti in it. For those who haven't eaten at Maggiano's and gotten GF pasta, they only have one type of GF pasta and it isn't spaghetti. This is the SECOND time this has happened at this location in the past 6 months. The previous time the chef and manager came out and really bent over backwards to apologize and told me it was a new employee, etc. They assured me that this would not happen again and that the problem has been corrected. Well now that this has happened again I see that the problem is now a pattern. My family and I really love this restaurant but it just isn't safe. As much as it saddens me I would highly recommend that anyone with a serious gluten allergy or someone with Celiac disease avoid eating at this particular location.
Bland generic pasta only served in penne, gluten free pasta needs to be cooked differently and served differenu than resilient regular pasta- it completely falls apart and is flarvorless in sauce. You can do better.
Really enjoyed the meal. Really did not enjoy the aftermath. Chef came over, seemed safe, food was good, but I was glutened.
The chef came out and discussed my options, and said he would cook my meal in a separate part of the kitchen. I am also dairy free and they could still accommodate. I’ve eaten at this location 3 times and always been fine. Definitely recommend!
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!
Great for celiac. Go here. They will send someone dedicated to Celiac appropriate food to your table to work with you and the waiter. No issues.
No gf menu but the chef comes out to discuss. Not that many options, but ok for a nice lunch. The taste of my chicken salad was excellent. No reactions.
Really nice and attentive staff, but i definitely got glutened.
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.
The staff was super knowledgeable about gluten free offerings. The chef even came out to talk to me about what the kitchen would be able to do to accommodate me. A+.
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.
I've had to stop going. One time, perfect the next something like a regular noodle mixed in to the dish.
The food is always delicious! When I let them know I need to eat gluten free, they send out the chef to personally take my order and answer any questions. Yummy gluten free rolls every time. Service is always outstanding, and I never feel like a bother for having food limitations.
