Not great service here, they have gluten free pasta and sauce but no rolls. When I asked the server if the meatballs were gluten free she said they were and then said they have “a little bit of bread crumbs but that’s it” in them. Clearly the staff is not well trained on allergies.

All of the sauces are GF and they have a GF penne. Staff is knowledgeable about what is and is not GF.

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.

Our waitress was phenomenal! They offer gluten free pasta and all the sauces are gluten free so there are a ton of options. I would definitely recommend it to anyone in the mood for a great Italian meal!

Had a great experience! As soon as I told them the waiter went and got the kitchen manager to make sure nothing got lost in translation for my restrictions. Rigatoni D pasta with gluten free pasta cooked in separate pasta water. They were great!

I went to Maggiano's after seeing all the wonderful reviews. I was so excited to be able to take my husband there for his birthday since it is one of his fave's; And since finding out about my gluten intolerence 6 months ago we haven't gone out to dinner much as I've been learning what to look out for. Unfortuantley, my experience was far different than the positive reviews I read. I told the server right away about my intolerence, she seemed very non chalant about it and quickly said the sauces are free and penne, then she set the bread basket down between us. I asked her very nicely to clarify that penne was the only pasta option and she said yes. I ordered the Rigatoni D since I thought it was a good choice served with Penne. Luckily, I know my pastas because they brought me out the Rigatoni without the GF pasta! I said something to the food runner and she confirmed it was not GF and seemed confused as if it wasn't notated on my order. About 6 minutels later while my huisband sat looking at his pasta getting cold mine finally arrived.

I will give it one more shot for him just in case it was just the server who created a bad experience, but needless to say we were very disappointed. (and also, being Italian myself I really wish they had more choices than just Penne.. it would be plain wrong to eat certain sauces over penne... lol)

I wish my experience was like the one the other reviews related. my waiter had no clue about GF options beyond substituting the pasta for a gluten free pasta. When the pasta came out it was ice cold and the pasta was hard as a rock. The waiter wasn't even apologetic. There are way better choices out there!!

No GF menu, but the waiter gave me some options that could be made GF. I ordered the Chicken Marsala with mashed potatoes. Someone from the kitchen came out and explained the modifications that they were going to make to the dish to make GF. Tasted great and didn’t get sick.

Luckily I knew what the gluten free noodles looked like before, because they served me regular pasta. I asked my server and she did immediately apologize and took the food to be replaced. Thankfully I did not eat it.

Wait staff is trained to ask if there are an allergies. A chef came to the table to explain what can be altered to be gluten free (celiac safe). Pretty much all the pasta dishes can be gluten free. I ordered 2 dishes. Shrimp alfredo and shrimp fra diavolo. I got my nima sensor and tested both. Shrimp fra diavolo came back gluten free but the shrimp alfredo did not.
