Options are limited but the gluten free pasta and grilled chicken parm was tasty. Did not get bloated or sore stomach after eating here.

Spaghetti's good, so is the salad. I do wish they'd open up their choices, though. There's a lot they make regular that could be made GF with a few changes.

The server was knowledgeable about what sauces contain gluten. The gluten free pasta was pretty good, but I’m pretty sure that it was boiled in the same water as the regular pasta. It’s the only thing I ate today and I have a very obvious skin reaction to gluten. So that sucks. That’s happened more than once at a restaurant where I’ve gotten gluten free pasta (I’m new). I guess all you can do is stress the need for a fresh pot of water.

I really wish I could give them a zero stars. The server promised me it was completely gluten free, but I was still a bit nervous. Very little options, and even then, as soon as I ate it I knew it was not safe. It took a weeks to get over the effect and I felt so sick. I do not recommend.

Ordered GF pasta and informed server it was an allergy, and I found at least 6 regular shell noodles in the GF rotini. I am not sure if I accidentally ate some regular noodles or just had cross contamination, but I did not feel well at all that evening ☹ be very cautious and check your pasta!!!

I was told they only had one gluten free pasta & it wasn’t on the menu. Website states there is a gluten free menu, but staff was not aware of any gluten free menu.

My office catered lunch from Olive Garden. My manager specifically ordered the zuppa toscana soup ( listed as GF on their menu)and told them I had a gluten allergy; i was glutened- prob cross contamination. Will never try to eat there ever again.
