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).

Maggianos has recently been voted #1 for celiac friendly by AllergyEats!! They sent a chef out to talk to me when I informed them of my dietary restriction. The chef explained how they could modify dishes to make them gluten free. The staff was very knowledgeable and I felt taken care of. The food was delicious and exactly what I needed after a long day of working in an unfamiliar city.

my coworkers and I had lunch to go today. I called and ordered the chicken rustic. when I got there i doubled checked my order and the guy said that it was gluten free. I ate my lunch and afterwards I had an upset stomach with cramping. I went all day feeling horrible, needless to say this will be my last time there.

Was not impressed by this Maggiano's in Houston. The waitress did not have the chef come to my table, which has always been done at their other locations. She said they were "in a thing.". If they were in a thing, then who was cooking?! I should have left at that point but I didn't have any other options nearby, as I was on foot. Waitress was horrible. I asked twice for a straw & never got it, and the restaurant was empty! Food came out wrong and was completely bland & tasteless. Won't be going back to this location ever.

Sadly we had to give this location a one because of unfortunately being gluten'd. We have dined at another Maggiano's dozens of times with no incident and like mentioned below the chef would always come to our table. Here we had to ask and it didn't seem this is what they did, right off the bat I became nervous and sure enough I was feeling sick before we left to go home. We are new to Houston and sadly this location is a one and done for us. If you're Celiac I wouldn't recommend this location, sorry.

Fantastic chicken parm...they just used grilled chicken. We had caprese as an appetizer and it was great. Love this place. My son who has celiac had a big bowl of GF pasta and loved it...he ate every bite.

Their "to-go" staff needs some education about gluten, but I never worry about my food. They take it seriously and I have a lot of trust every time I go there.

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
