Food was delicious as usual! No issues with cross contamination and no sickness. Only downside was the menu is quite limited for gluten free. Im a huge alfredo lover and was sad to see that it was not gluten free. I know some brands are some arent. But overall i was pleased eith the knowledge of the staff and carefulness as well. Grateful for any type of gluten free hopeful to see a larger menu in the future.

We had lunch today. There's a separate menu and are server was GF aware. My daughter ordered GF chicken breast and pasta. Unfortunately, she was served regular pasta. She asked the person who delivered the food if the pasta was GF, because it looked the same as her sister's regular pasta. She was told it was GF, but she got violently I'll about 45 minutes later. When I called the restaurant they confirmed that the spaghetti she ate contained gluten, because they do not have GF spaghetti.

Eaten here twice since the gluten free menu was available and went home to be sick both times. Both waiters had zero knowledge of what celiacs even was which is astonishing given they offer gluten free options.

Olive Garden has a separate gluten free menu that also gives the calorie count! Great selections!

Waiter was great! Very thorough with allergy. Told kitchen, and manager came out. Kitchen changed gloves, utensils and they made everything fresh to avoid cross contamination. Our server was the best with the allergy, have never seen someone so through. Changed his gloves multiple times as well when handling our food all the way down to boxing up our leftovers! Had gf pasta, salad without croutons and had soup option!

I will admit... I was sooo nervous to try this, but this is one of my families favorite places.

When the waiter came to the table I greeted and explained that I have Celiac like I always do and he was so attentive and sweet about it. (Definitely ask for Thomas if you go in)

The manager delivers your food and it always comes out separate from everyone else at the table.

I had all you can eat soup and salad with the Zuppa Tuscana soup. Everything was amazing and I didn't get sick.

I will definitely be going again.

We celebrated a birthday here yesterday with my whole family. The service was excellent and everyone liked their meals. I had gluten free rotini with spaghetti sauce with Italian sausage and their Zupa Tuscano soup. It was honestly a lot better than Maggianos. I haven’t been to Olive Garden in years but I’ll definitely be going back!
