When the waiter asks "What's gluten?" it's time to start worrying. It went downhill from there. The first salad came with croutons and chicken parmesan came with pasta that was not gluten free.

I had chicken Parmesan grilled which was good but the pasta that came with it was over cooked and he sauce tasted like a can of hunts tomatoes but I didn’t have a reaction so I’d still say it’s safe

This was a terrible experience!!! The waiter went out of his way with my salads and he was fantastic. The problem was the pasta. I did a Nima text on it and it tested positive for gluten. I brought it up to the manager and they offered to bring me another plate. I turned it down as I was scared to eat at this point and they assured me I was wrong and it was gluten free. That’s just not the case.

I ordered the GF Pasta, the waiter asked me if it was an allergy or preference. I told him explicitly that is was a severe allergy with very quick reaction time. He told me he would relay it to the kitchen. When my plate came my GF Pasta was mixed with regular pasta shells. (They only offer 1 type of pasta GF so I know the other types of noodles were not GF). Unfortunately I did not see this until I had eaten part of it. I will not go to Olive Garden anymore. This was too close of a call.

Gluten free rotini with marinara sauce and shrimp was delicious. However, the gluten free menu was quite limited.

Horrible experience. Asked two people for a gluten free menu. They had barely any clue and pointed me to the table top kiosk. It was hard to navigate so I just used my phone. They have a clearly listed gf menu on their website but staff is completely clueless. I order the steak and broccoli. First they brought me out steak with pasta noodles and Alfredo. They had to take it back. I received my order when everyone else was done. The steak was basically raw and the broccoli was too. I barely ate 5 bites as the food was very gross. No effort was made to compensate or remove even a small amount of my bill for the horrible experience. Definitely do not recommend as a safe place to eat.
