Excellent service. Our waiter, Lewis, was very knowledgable about gluten-free aspects on the menu. All their pasta dishes can be subbed GF pasta. Sous Chef Edson came out to personally speak with me and make sure he understood my dietary needs. A really positive experience! I had the Rigatoni Arrabbiata with GF pasta - so good. Chef Edson also made us calamari but grilled instead of fried, and it was delicious. For my birthday, Lewis brought out a complimentary dish of vanilla ice cream (nornally they do cookies for special occasions.) We definitely plan to return especially since they have GF creme brulee!

Waiter asked about allergies before taking our order. Chef came out and talked to us to cover everything. They got my order confused and piccata came out instead of marsala, but we got it all sorted out in the end.

I was very impressed with this place. The chef came out to speak to us personally after saying I had a gluten allergy. He discussed all of my options and was willing to prepare anything I wanted GF, which was incredible. Food was really, really good. LARGE portions. Not sure about how they handle cross contamination in the kitchen but I'm a sensitive celiac and I did not get sick. Definitely a great option when going out with a large group of non-celiacs.

I was very impressed. The waiter asked if we had any allergies without prompting. The chef came to the table to discuss what we could order. They could make many things gluten free. My girls had spaghetti with meat sauce. I had chix parm with grilled chix. (3 celiacs) They even had gf creme brulee. We loved it.

By far one of the best gluten free experiences we had while in Chicago! They don't have a separate gluten free menu, but they can make almost any menu item with gluten free pasta. The chef came out to our table and helped me plan my meal. It was fantastic!! We actually ate here twice, because it was that wonderful!!

Not only a great place to eat but they also have a dedicated GF area and the chef is very accommodating. They also have live entertainment several nights a week. One of the few Italian restaurants that is celiac friendly.

Awesome! Can adapt almost any pasta dish, subbing a wonderful corn ziti. Good prices and classic dishes are two for one ( one to take home). Huge potions (share) and giant creme brulee. Good for kids.

Disappointed. Only one gluten free pasta dish, penne pasta. They did say they could make some gluten free chicken dishes.

I was looking for a safe choice at the Dallas airport and was happy to see Maggiano's as an option. I've eaten at many locations and have always had a good experience. All the pasta choices can be made gluten free, except the ravioli. They have a separate prep area for pasta, and staff was well informed of preparation measures.

Our server was gluten free which was awesome. Had a Ceasar salad, the bruschetta with cucumber slices instead of bread. And penne gf noodles with vodka sauce. All sauces are gluten free

No gluten-free menu but they seem to take allergies VERY seriously. The chef comes out to take the order personally and provides GF substitutes. Many options!
