Their GF pasta has soy in it so I cannot have it. they will give me my own salad and I usually have the salmon which is delicious. They will clean the grill before they cook to avoid cross contamination

I was impressed on how much better the rating was vs two years ago. It has come a long way. Now if they would just make GF breadsticks. I am not anaphylaxis celiac. Fyi.

Not very good, especially for that price! My pasta is always hard--they obviously don't know how to cook GF.

Had rotini with marinara which was very good, and salad without croutons. Sad that they have such a small list of options.

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.
