They said it would be cooked separately but I still got sick. Got gf pasta (rigatoni D’s dish w gf penne). Would not recommend for serious allergies. Food was delicious but not worth it.

We had a great experience. The waiter informed the kitchen and even had the chef come to our table (on a very busy night) and he explained lots of options and how to modify some dishes to make it gluten free.

Our waiter (William, I think) was excellent and took great care to explain options and keep my food separate among a large group order. I enjoyed my meal very much and recommend them highly!

Server was kind and willing to double check questions with kitchen, including confirmation of GF pasta prepared in fresh pasta water. Fettuccine Alfredo sauce was GF and served with gf penne (only gf noodle). Fresh non-GF bread was on the table for guests when we were seated. That was a bit hard/tempting for my daughter. Would be nice if they had a gf bread option. She tolerated the meal with no apparent exposure.

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.

The only thing better than the staff was the food. They do not have a written GF menu but, as they explained, they are a scratch kitchen and could make most of the many of the items gluten free. They do have GF corn based pasta as a substitution for pasta. The food was great and the staff made us feel that we were in good hands. From the front manager to the chef, they made sure that our food was prepared carefully and without cross contamination.

Ordered a dish with gluten free pasta (penne), but there was a small piece of spaghetti and piece of fettuccine in the dish as well. Be careful if you are very sensitive!

I will not eat here. Sat for ten minutes asking for a wait staff to confirm availability of GF and cross contamination. Unless you want to order from the on line menu and trust but not verify, don’t recommend. I left without having even a chance of talking to someone.

The food was delicious, and they claim to have a bunch of gluten-free options. But most of the food is prepared in the same area, along with cooked in the same place as other foods. I don’t have celiac, but I had a violent reaction after eating here.

My waiter was super knowledgeable on my allergy. (I’m celiac) I enjoy pasta (GF) and even had a salad to start. I would 100% go back.
