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.

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!

While they don't have a gf menu, the chef came out to discuss what I would like. They have gf penne pasta but I'm also counting calories so I substituted spinach. Very good!

They have always done a wonderful job keeping our food gluten free. The chef always comes out and talked to us about what our options were. Many of the dishes that have some type of noodle can be made gluten free. Haven't ever gotten sick

Great restaurant now has serious commitment to gluten-free customers! They have made a corporate move to gluten-free as the default for most dishes; they even make four kinds of gluten-free pastas fresh in the kitchen! All of their sauces and salad readings are gluten-free and the chef comes out to make sure they take care of you. Only ore-made things like lasagna are off-limits. Finally, a restaurant that gets it!Great food, great service and good value makes this at the very least a go-to place for special occasions. Mangia!

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.

Maggianos can make most of their pastas with GF pasta! They also have GF rolls that they bring out to start which is exciting!!

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
