    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.

    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.

Luckily I noticed the noodles pretty early on so I was able to get them to make a new one without getting sick.

    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.

    The service was completely lackluster. The GM Matt came to our table and raved about how they have a full scratch kitchen and can make anything safe. My friend and I feel confident that this could be a good experience. Fast forward to dinner, my friend orders the Johnny's Carbonara with Gluten free pasta and has them add grilled chicken. It looks good, a few bites in something seems off, but he doesn't think anything of it. He is almost done and noticed there is a piece of fettuccine mixed in with his gluten free penne! Apparently someone in the kitchen wasn't paying attention when they made his meal! We had the manager come over and while they did comp our entire meal, that didn't help the fact that he spent the next several hours between the toilet and the bed. We will never be going back to any Maggiano's again. Not worth the risk!

    Another excellent visit. Enjoyed Gluten-Free pasta and sauce served in hearty portion. Chef visits your table prior to ordering to discuss menu options. Great value if you order selected pasta dishes that are two for one (one to enjoy in restaurant and one to take home, or two as take out). The dining room is always packed (be sure to make a reservation) because the food is outstanding. 3-1-2016 review: 5 stars. Great GF Italian food in restaurant or to go. GF pasta and sauces are definitely some of the best I have ever had (they are so good that even non-allergic people will eat them and say they are good). I have eaten here multiple times and have never had a reaction. Highly recommended.

    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.

    When we said we were celiac, the chef came out himself to review the menu with us and make sure he could accommodate our needs. He helped is pick an appetizer - baked calamari instead of fried. They substitute gf penne for the pasta options. My daughter had the meat sauce and I had Shrimp Fra diavola both of which were delicious! All sauces are made in house and gluten free.

    Amazing experience and delicious dinner! They take Celiac disease and allergies (table next to us had a nut allergy) so seriously that the manager or chef takes your order. The manager took my order and demonstrated a real understanding of Celiac. You can ask for anything off the menu and he can immediately tell you if it can be modified for gluten free, and whether it will still taste good doing so! They have a scratch kitchen, so they make everything from scratch anyway, so they are happy to modify any dish. I opted for the gnocchi and Italian sausage dish with Vodka sauce, substituting gluten free pasta for the gnocchi. It was delicious! Being newly diagnosed with Celiac, this experience took the fear out of dining out and made me feel like I can still enjoy some of the foods I love. I will definitely be going back!!!
