I agreed to eat here because I heard they are cautious. I asked the waitress what she suggested for someone with celiac and she assured me they could alter nearly anything to accommodate me. She even told me the chef would come out to discuss options but he never did. I ordered a simple pasta and substituted with GF. When eating my leftovers, I found about 10 stray (gluten-full) spaghetti noodles and ended up throwing it out. I was hoping they'd be careful in the kitchen like they said, but I won't be going back. Not worth the risk or feeling sick.
Very accommodating. Chef comes out and discusses options and takes order. Been there twice, Chef George then Terrence. Both very helpful.
Chef George came out and personally assured me he could make me whatever I wanted and also explained the "lighter offerings" menu too. He said he could do bruschetta on zucchini, had a good pasta and he omitted croutons from salad. Everything was excellent he came back out to check on us and I truly dined with confidence.
They serve multiple pasta dishes that are gluten free. I told my waiter about my food allergies & he had the Chef come speak with me. They definitely take gluten issues seriously and are very accommodating.
Amazing gluten free pasta. They were very willing and polite when working to make entrees gluten free! I really appreciate this great place. Wish all places were like this! Will definitely come back!!!
Have gluten free pasta, but that's all. No special menu so just tell the waiter.
I was so excited when going to Maggianos for a business lunch expecting to covet my coworkers pasta and was amped when finding out they had gf pasta! the texture is pretty good and the manager said they are working on a gf bread option.
They don’t have a gluten free menu but the chef came to the table and offered to make my daughter whatever she wanted. She ordered simple pasta but she had no reaction. Staff were all very knowledgeable.
They have the ability to make many things GF and know what they’re doing. They have GF pasta too. I’ve never gotten sick and been here many times. Very tasty. They also offer “lighter take” items that have fewer calories. This is my go to Italian restaurant. Yum!
Manager takes your order. The best way to show customers your serious about taking care of them. add to original review. This add is December 27, 2017. My wife, who is Celiac, have dined here three more times. Manager takes the order. No issues.
I would not recommend this establishment for take-out. The person taking my order seemed unaware of gluten containing ingredients for pasta dishes (does the sausage contain gluten? I still don't know!) When we went to pick up our meals, we found that my gluten free meal was actually standard pasta- and with the wrong sauce. Without apology, they "corrected" the dish - again with standard pasta. Finally, after 45 minutes of waiting on the correct gluten free meal, we were given a bag full of (gluten containing) bread as an apology ("to apologize").
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.
Great food, even better waitstaff - very attentive to our dietary needs. Lots of GF options from which to choose but no separate menu. The assistant manager came over to talk to us since we were eating GF and he was also very helpful. We will be back!
The last 2 times I've been here, they screwed up my order and had to remake my food. The chef will come out for show and pretty much just nod if the dish can be made gluten free, but they aren't terribly diligent. Take a close look at your dish and make sure they used the GF penne (pointy and grooved) and not the wheat rigatoni (smooth and cylindrical).
*updated* I initially had fabulous experiences here, but after eating successfully 3-4 times, I got very sick 2 times in a row. The first time I was accidentally served regular pasta and I thought it tasted too good to be gluten free but I ate it and became incredibly sick. The second time I believe it was cross contamination. Both times I called the restaurant. After the first incident, the management was incredibly apologetic. After the second, they blamed me as being too sensitive to eat out because they can't control if a waiter touches bread and then touches my water glass. I thought that was a bit far fetched and insulting. Unfortunately, I no longer feel comfortable eating here.
Went with 8 other people, so we ordered Family Style. The waiter brought me a Gluten-Free version of the 3 of the items we ordered. The sautéed calamari was good. The Grilled Chicken Piccata was lacking flavor, it just needed a little more lemon sauce. The Braised Beef with Gluten-Free Penne instead of Pappardelle was excellent, I don’t know what brand of gluten-free pasta they used but it was the best I’ve ever had. For dessert, the waiter brought me a dish of strawberries since we ordered Cheesecake and Hit Apple Crostata. The only item I couldn’t eat was the Chef’s Italian Antipasti and I chose not to eat the Salmon.
Staff Very aware of what items have gluten. I had beef Medallions. (I'm sick of ordering it cuz only thing gf tasty on menu that isn't seafood .) But it was good. Maggianos salad has to be ordered minus prosciutto and blue cheese unfortunately. Boo that!
They will make almost anything on the menu GF! Outstanding meal!!! My family including me had a delicious meal! Highly recommended!
I called and spoke to the chef and he said they use the same serving dishes, strainers etc as regular pasta and when I pointed out cross contamination he said well they are clean to start..not Celiac safe in my opinion
I stopped in and ordered takeout for dinner. Had a long conversation with the takeout host about gluten free options. He was great and even checked with the kitchen on salad dressings. I got back to my hotel and my entree was regular spaghetti (easy to tell since it wasn't their GF penne shape). And there was a big hunk of bread in the bag. Called the restaurant and they sent someone to my hotel with a GF entree 40 minutes later. I was super sick later that night. I might dine in at a different location but I'd never do take out again.
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.
Absolutely amazing!!!! Traveled to Denver as my husband came here on business. The chef came right to my table and assisted me with ordering. He even gave me a complementary appetizer as I could not eat the rolls! Delicious gf pasta. Most if not all of the sauces are gf. One of the best experiences at a restaurant since I was diagnosed celiac 5 years ago!
Pretty much any dish can be altered if necessary to be GFree. Chef came out to check on my GFree order. Excellent cuisine. Full bar and decent wine list. Sinatra always on. Can't ask for more.
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).
They had some kind of chips for before dinner that were pretty good. I had the ziti & it was amazing! The atmosphere, the food, the people all 5 stars. I will return.
90% of the menu can be made GF. Staff was super accommodating and very knowledgable about gluten sensitivity. My sons have Celiac and the chef came to speak with us and made their meal separate to avoid any cross contamination. We had a great time!!!!
The first time I went here I had a seafood pasta which I did not enjoy. The shells were cracked all over my food and it was awful. Since then I decided to give them another chance. I explained the situation and the chef was really accommodating. I now go here regularly and the food is fab I always go for a pasta dish and tell the chef what I would like in it
Didn't get sick here! Had 2 pastas baked ziti and Alfredo sauce and ate leftovers and didn't get sick. chef came out just like everyone said. I think they only have gf penne. I like not getting sick but personally don't love the chain feel of this place.
Absolutely delicious. Chef came to table and offered to prepare 80% of the menu gluten free - not just pastas, all the main courses. Only thing couldn't modify to gluten free was desserts. Speaking of desserts- the creme brûlée was gluten free and it was outstanding, probably the best tasting I have EVER had. The food here is fresh, cooked to order, the staff is friendly, GF knowledgeable, and everything we had was so tasty. BTW they will accommodate many food allergies, ie. eggs, milk, nuts etc. Highly recommend this place even if you have to drive a little while to get there because it is so worth it.
Twice I've had normal noodles in my gf dish even after the chef came out to speak with me. The waiter and manager were very apologetic and gave my date and I free full size desserts and my meal was free. Luckily I noticed the noodles pretty early on so I was able to get them to make a new one without getting sick.
I've been to this location three times. The chef always comes out and is very helpful with celiac and allergies. I wish they had gf bread but the food is good and I haven't gotten sick.
got glutened. had the pasta with sausage
I have to say that this is probably one of the best dining experiences I have had since being diagnosed with Celiac two years ago. My waiter(Abraham) was great and told me that the kitchen was prepared and knowledgeable in preparing gluten free food and had a dedicated workspace. He told me the chef would be right out to discuss my order. Eric the chef and I spoke about what I would be ordering and how it would be prepared. I ordered the Taylor Street Pasta with sausage and it was fantastic. Later on Abraham treated my table with creme brûlée (also gluten free ) for dessert. The manager, Charles was also wonderful and very attentive. Great experience. Will go back.
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!
very knowledgeable about gluten free and very accommodating . the manager Mario and our waiter they are great.
This is my new happy place!!! GF bread and amazing pasta!
Not only the best Italian food I've eaten, the service was incredible, and the staff took exceptional care to provide safe food. The chef spoke directly to me to ensure that my meal was GF. I am so impressed with them! We will visit every time we are in Cinci!
Dont tell me the menu is completely gluten free! Calamari Fritte? Nope. Eggplant Parm? Nope. Ok lets move onto all of the gluten free pasta- Ravioli? Nope. Fettuccini? Nope. Braised beef papardelli? Nope...hmmm GF bread for the table? Nope. Ok ill have the most popular pasta dish? Rigatoni D? Sure!!! Comes out with Penne!!!! Accck!!! waiyer didnt have patience or too much knowledge and hardly spoke to me for the rest of the meal even though i was completely disappointed . Of course i was charged full price for my meal. Will not be going back.
