I had a gf pasta order that had gluten pasta mixed in. It probably spilled over into the dish they served out of in the kitchen, maybe? I’ve gotten sick eating here. I definitely don’t like eating here. I have so few options and I feel unsafe after my last couple of attempts to dine here.

my fiance and I are both gf. the waiter instructed it's if we were severe (celiac) to order off the gf menu if just sensitive we could make substitutions. I'm celiac so I ordered off the suggested gf menu only to have the cooks, server and gm looking like outdoors when they unknowingly brought out the wrong dish. I took one bite and shared with fiance to make matters worse.his digestive system was messed up for a week and I was need ridden for three days. they comped our bill but it didn't matter it was too late. I will not be back because the staff and e off all the kitchen isn't trained on their own menu.

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.

Server said they will clean the grill to ensure safe preparation of chicken Parmesan. Salad for my whole table came without Croutons. I tested my food before eating and it was gluten free. No reactions!
