Got salmon and broccoli and had an attack, I assume from cross contamination.

Olive Garden was my most favorite restaurant before Celiac Disease. so saying I missed it was an understatement! I was so excited to learn they now offer gluten free pasta. I went with my husband and kids and met other family there. I didn't have to feel like a burden for not being able to eat anything! long story short, the gf pasta was hard as a rock in many places and wayyyyy overcooked! so totally ruined my meal. So I filled up on the salad without croutons and of course no bread sticks. I didn't get sick but was very worried.

I didn't get sick, and the server understood what GF options were available, but I don't think the cook had ever cooked GF pasta before. It was hard in some places and literally shredded as if it had all been stuck together then pulled apart.

while the menu is quite limited, the food was good and service was excellent! our server made sure that my meal was prepared separately and someone came to the table to talk to me about their preparation process for gluten free dishes. my dish came out first and separately, and i felt very safe. my receipt also had “allergen guest” written on it literally four times so that added to my feeling of safety here. overall a great experience :)

I only went once, shortly after this location opened, and it was a disaster. Nobody knew anything, and my meal was clearly not gluten free. It was my third attempt at an Olive Garden after it supposedly began offering gluten-free options. It was also my last.
