Not only did they have tons of gluten free pasta that the chef talked personally to me about, and not only did it taste amazing, they fresh baked gluten free bread for me. Absolutely amazing, and I love coming here for anniversaries.

UPDATE: They no longer carry gluten free rolls. Said they are lookimg for a new vendor, but it's been about 6 months. Also no GF lunch specials unless you want 2 half salads w/out protein. Original Review: The first time I ate here was fine. The second time they were out of GF rolls so they asked if they could comp by sending me an additional pasta home. I thought that was great and ordered the veggie penne with GF noodles (obvs). Well they sent me home with WHEAT pasta!!!! I ate 1/4 of the dish before realizing something was wrong. The noodles looked exactly the same as the GF option except orange, and the texture was softer. I became extremely ill that night and the entire next day. My boyfriend ate the rest of the dish and confirmed it was exactly the same as what he has eaten at the restaurant (ie wheat noodles). I'm not sure if I want to eat here again. GF control is pretty good for dining in, but I'll never do take out again. The gluten free rolls are awful, imo and not worth the calories. They could buy any brand of rolls literally anywhere and they would taste better. Not sure why they haven't caught on yet... they also take FOREVER to come out even though they supposedly start them as soon as you sit down.

Wonderful experience and delicious food. The gluten free bread basket was a yummy treat (we got a refill, too!) and it was so nice to have many options to choose from. Our waitress had the manager come over and talk to us about the different options and the food was prepared separately. Everything was so good! We’re excited to return.

We’ve been frequent visitors of Maggianos for a few years now. My mom and I both have gluten and dairy allergies. Usually this is a tall order, but since the restaurant makes from scratch food in the back and the chefs are extremely knowledgeable and accommodating it’s such an amazing experience. They offer gluten and dairy free pasta and biscuits! The chef always comes out to talk with us about what we want and how he can accommodate those meals to our allergies. This gives us so many choices and it’s affordable to boot! We are there yesterday and I’m sure we’ll be back soon! I can’t say enough good things about eating at Maggianos!

Great experience here! My husband and I went for our anniversary and they were very helpful. The assistant manager came up to our table to talk to us about gluten free options and our server was great as well! I had the rigatoni D, and my husband had the beef medallions. As a bonus they also had gluten free rolls. I had no issues eating here and will definitely be back!

They used to have INCREDIBLE gluten free bread, but when I was there last month, the rolls were different; they were dry and fell apart when trying to eat them. It was still a nice experience, but I was disappointed that they down-graded their bread.

My absolute favorite in the area. Only place I know of that offers gluten free rolls! They're from a local gf bakery and are INCREDIBLY delicious! I'd go there just based on the premise that they offer gluten free rolls like they do regular ones, and at no extra charge! I've only ever had one issue there, and it was for a take out order where they accidentally didn't mark my order as GF but luckily I was familiar enough with the dish because I get the same one all the time (rigatoni D), that I could tell it wasn't the right pasta. So I called them and they had someone deliver the right order to me! So nice. And the creme brûlée is amazing as well.

I would love to give them 5 stars, but I've gotten sick after eating here more than once. There are good options, and the staff seems knowledgeable, but I'm not so sure about their cross-contamination carefulness. There have been times I've been fine and times I haven't, but I think it's time for me to give up on them.

My office bought lunch for us today and I was excited to be able to partake this time, albeit worried about becoming ill at work. The food was amazing!!! The gentleman taking the order was wonderful. The portion size is huge and to be able to eat (bread) rolls from a restaurant was so exciting. I did not become ill and will be eating there again and again and again.

Tasty. Good GF pasta. Haven't had a bad meal or gotten ill, and we've been here a lot. Most times the chef will come speak to you (if I'm just getting a classic pasta I tell them not to worry about it). They've modified many a menu item for me, even beyond their usual modification just because I have a craving. Oh, and the GF rolls are Andreas herb dinner rolls. I have to slap my non-GF husband's hand to stay away from them.

In the past I have loved Maggiano's. I'd seen on other reviews that the manager or chef comes out personally to speak with you. Granted, it was Friday night, but that did not happen. I told our waiter and he said ok. He proceeded to bring bread to the table and said nothing. I had to ask if it was regular or GF. Waiter said nothing about the menu just asked what we'd decided to order-we hadn't even ordered drinks yet. So finally I asked for some GF bread. They burned it once and the second time it came out frozen. Third try it came out after my meal. Dinner was good, a bit salty, but that's tolerable. I guess I was just a little disappointed. We'll go back, but I hope we don't have the same experience. Waiter was nice enough, just a little rushed I guess.

I have had good experiences at Maggiano's. I have never been sick afterwards, but sometimes you have to be extra careful with them. One time they brought out a red sauce with meatballs (their meatballs have bread crumbs in it) Another time they brought a salad to my sister that had bleu cheese on it (celiacs can had reactions to some types of bleu cheese). Every time they fixed it with offering to take a meal off of the ticket and offering a complimentary gf dessert. Overall good experiences but be observant.

What an experience! We had six gluten-free members in our party of 16. I had set up a menu were at least half of the dishes could be done gluten-free and they went above and beyond doing the entire menu gluten-free. We tested several of the dishes with our Nima sensor and they all came out gluten-free. Our waiter Addison was very knowledgeable about celiac disease. It was a wonderful experience for our party to be able to try so many different dishes and not get sick. Highly recommend the chop salad, spinach and artichoke dip, chicken piccata which they made a gluten-free version, the braised beef falls apart with your fork and The crème brûlée is fabulous! Highly recommend this restaurant for gluten-free and not gluten-free parties!

Ate here for a work function, all employees promised that the gluten free options were easily available and the food tasted great coming out. Unfortunately this location must have no idea what cross-contamination is because I'm suffering from my typical glutening symptoms. Ate the ceasar salad without croutons, grilled chicken and veggies, and the creme brulee. Do NOT eat here if you are celiac or have a very low gluten tolerance.

I had a really good experience here. I got gluten free baked ziti and my friend got regular ziti.

I’m intolerant, don’t have CD, and I got sick here twice. I stick to a Low FODMAP diet, so perhaps it was an allium and not a gluten issue. But in either case, I did not feel the server took my food issues seriously. I live nearby and my son loves it here, but we won’t be back.

I ordered a gluten free pasta and had several regular pieces of spaghetti mixed in. The chef and manager came to the table to apologize, comped the meal, and offered gift cards to come back. The chef essentially said it was a “busy night in the kitchen and a noodle might of fallen in.” Yet there were several mixed throughout. I’m not sure if they use the same utensils or it’s pre made sauces. I thought it might be a fluke thing but apparently this has happened to almost every person who ordered GF. Do yourself a favor and avoid the pasta dishes- aka don’t eat here.

We heard this restaurant was rated the best chain for folks with allergies and I saw many great reviews on Find Me Gluten Free so we went in with high hopes. I was very disappointed by how few options I had to choose from. They do not have gluten free bread (so no bruschetta), most of their appetizers are breaded and/ or cooked in a shared fryer. They have ONE GF pasta choice (penne) that they can convert SOME of their dishes with. The pasta wasn't cooked well and was a bit rubbery. Limited dessert menu but I will say they do a great creme brulee.

Was in town for a conference and so glad I ate here! Not only was it delicious, there were SO many options and our server right off the bat asked if anyone had a food allergy. He then explained what I could eat or modifications that could be made, and upon ordered my salad (the chopped starter salad - which was DELICIOUS!) and our server suggested I leave off the crispy pancetta because even though it itself is GF, it was apparently cooked in a fryer shared with the calamari so he suggested I omit it from my salad which was so appreciated! Portions were huge, food was delicious, and atmosphere was neat. Definitely book a reservation ahead of time if you can - we had one and by the looks of the line it saved us a lot of time. Definitely would return here!

Who would’ve thought Maggiano’s was able to successfully accommodate someone with Celiac?? Well they can! (At least at this location). I hadn’t been to a Maggiano’s since I was diagnosed and was a little skeptical. But they blew me away. The manager Jake personally went over the options and along with our server Katie, made sure my meal was safe. Caprese appetizer, gf pasta (ALL of their sauces are GF), and even creme brûlée dessert. Perfect meal, absolutely delicious with no reaction. Can not wait to go back!!

I’ve eaten here 2 times. The first time I ordered pasta and had no problems with it and it was delicious. The second time I ate there, I ordered the same meal and noticed the noodles were a different type than the last time. When I asked about it, I found out that they had given me non gluten free noodles. Luckily I hadn’t eaten any yet. They fixed the mistake and brought out the correct meal, which I had no problem. Staff needs to be more attentive. I won’t go back.

The first time I went here, they told me they could make chicken parm gluten free, so I ordered that. Well, what I got was an unseasoned piece of grilled chicken with an unmelted piece of cheese on top and some tomato sauce. Not good. The second time I went here, I ordered gluten free pasta. The pasta was undercooked, the sauce was watery and bland. I’ve never gotten sick from eating here, but the food is awful and I wouldn’t recommend this place.

Tonight my husband and I shared the chicken parmigiana and the grilled chicken caprese salad both were made gluten free. It was so delish. The chicken parmigiana was “breaded” in crushed potato chips and it was sooooo crispy. After I ordered everything gluten free with the waiter, the sous chef (who was preparing our meal) came out and talked with me about the food and any other allergens I needed to be careful of. The restaurant can get busy and they take reservations with a minimum of an hour before.

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.
