Wonderful chicken alfredo! They have penne pasta that is gluten free. The server was very knowledgeable about gluten and made sure my meal was correct!

The food was pretty good, service was very good, but I wasn’t very confident in my order being completely gluten free. I ordered my steak without the butter sauce and it came with it, so I was worried about gluten, but it turned out fine!

The steak was free because of the mistake.

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.

have celiac. I ordered the gluten free fettuccine Alfredo with chicken and let the waiter know that I have the severe gluten allergy. They brought the chef out to talk with me to ensure my safety. It was the most amazing pasta.

The menu states their pasta sauce is GF and that GF pasta can be requested. The chef came out and spoke to us and was very knowledgeable about safe protocols. I was pleasantly surprised and my Italian loving daughter with celiac enjoyed it.

I ordered a gluten free pasta and stated my allergie to the server and ended up finding a not gluten free peice of pasta in my gluten free. It is not worth risking a allergy

Maggianos Normally has gluten free pasta for no upcharge and made separate from gluten pasta. I got the spaghetti with meat sauce since their meatballs have gluten. Unfortunately they require an extra 20 minutes to cook the pasta and when my food came out it had the meatball on it. Staff were apologizing and remade the food. I was able to eat and was cross contaminated because halfway through I found gluten spaghetti noodles with my gluten free penne. Be very careful eating here and take extra precautions before eating. Staff did apologize again because they know how serious celiac disease is and compensated my meal.
