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.

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.

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.

Staff was nice- stated they could make almost any of the pasta dishes gluten free minus the stuffed pastas. They brought us out gluten free bread to start which was awesome! I had the fettuccine Alfredo with chicken and it was good, not great. Had to add seasons. The chicken was pretty bland. They do send you home with another pasta dish on top of the one you ordered at no extra cost which is awesome!

What an experience! We had six gluten-free members in our party of 16. I had set up a menu were at least half of the dishes could be done gluten-free and they went above and beyond doing the entire menu gluten-free. We tested several of the dishes with our Nima sensor and they all came out gluten-free. Our waiter Addison was very knowledgeable about celiac disease. It was a wonderful experience for our party to be able to try so many different dishes and not get sick. Highly recommend the chop salad, spinach and artichoke dip, chicken piccata which they made a gluten-free version, the braised beef falls apart with your fork and The crème brûlée is fabulous! Highly recommend this restaurant for gluten-free and not gluten-free parties!

Ate here for a work function, all employees promised that the gluten free options were easily available and the food tasted great coming out. Unfortunately this location must have no idea what cross-contamination is because I'm suffering from my typical glutening symptoms. Ate the ceasar salad without croutons, grilled chicken and veggies, and the creme brulee. Do NOT eat here if you are celiac or have a very low gluten tolerance.

I had a really good experience here. I got gluten free baked ziti and my friend got regular ziti.

I ate it and had no issues.

I’m intolerant, don’t have CD, and I got sick here twice. I stick to a Low FODMAP diet, so perhaps it was an allium and not a gluten issue. But in either case, I did not feel the server took my food issues seriously. I live nearby and my son loves it here, but we won’t be back.

I ordered a gluten free pasta and had several regular pieces of spaghetti mixed in. The chef and manager came to the table to apologize, comped the meal, and offered gift cards to come back. The chef essentially said it was a “busy night in the kitchen and a noodle might of fallen in.” Yet there were several mixed throughout. I’m not sure if they use the same utensils or it’s pre made sauces. I thought it might be a fluke thing but apparently this has happened to almost every person who ordered GF. Do yourself a favor and avoid the pasta dishes- aka don’t eat here.

We heard this restaurant was rated the best chain for folks with allergies and I saw many great reviews on Find Me Gluten Free so we went in with high hopes. I was very disappointed by how few options I had to choose from. They do not have gluten free bread (so no bruschetta), most of their appetizers are breaded and/ or cooked in a shared fryer. They have ONE GF pasta choice (penne) that they can convert SOME of their dishes with. The pasta wasn't cooked well and was a bit rubbery. Limited dessert menu but I will say they do a great creme brulee.

Delicious gluten free food! Amazing service! The waitress notified the chef of our dietary restrictions and the chef came to our table and spoke directly to us, giving us options to choose from. After the meals were served, the chef returned to ask us how everything was. The waitress also returned a few times to ask how everything was.

Who would’ve thought Maggiano’s was able to successfully accommodate someone with Celiac?? Well they can! (At least at this location). I hadn’t been to a Maggiano’s since I was diagnosed and was a little skeptical. But they blew me away. The manager Jake personally went over the options and along with our server Katie, made sure my meal was safe. Caprese appetizer, gf pasta (ALL of their sauces are GF), and even creme brûlée dessert. Perfect meal, absolutely delicious with no reaction. Can not wait to go back!!

I’ve eaten here 2 times. The first time I ordered pasta and had no problems with it and it was delicious. The second time I ate there, I ordered the same meal and noticed the noodles were a different type than the last time. When I asked about it, I found out that they had given me non gluten free noodles. Luckily I hadn’t eaten any yet. They fixed the mistake and brought out the correct meal, which I had no problem. Staff needs to be more attentive. I won’t go back.

The first time I went here, they told me they could make chicken parm gluten free, so I ordered that. Well, what I got was an unseasoned piece of grilled chicken with an unmelted piece of cheese on top and some tomato sauce. Not good. The second time I went here, I ordered gluten free pasta. The pasta was undercooked, the sauce was watery and bland. I’ve never gotten sick from eating here, but the food is awful and I wouldn’t recommend this place.

Tonight my husband and I shared the chicken parmigiana and the grilled chicken caprese salad both were made gluten free. It was so delish. The chicken parmigiana was “breaded” in crushed potato chips and it was sooooo crispy. After I ordered everything gluten free with the waiter, the sous chef (who was preparing our meal) came out and talked with me about the food and any other allergens I needed to be careful of. The restaurant can get busy and they take reservations with a minimum of an hour before.

Ate at Maggiano’s in the Springhill Mall. We’ve had no problem with Maggiano’s anywhere else, and have always been told that sauces were gluten free with the gf pasta. At this location, we were told every sauce had gluten except for marinara. We were also told that mashed potatoes had gluten. We lost faith that the chef even knew what gluten was and decided against ordering anything for our two celiac children.
