I went to The Olive Garden in Winchester, VA and ordered a steak that was made to order. I spoke with the Assistant Manager. I told him I understood why they would have a disclaimer about the gluten free options. I asked him if he could make sure that I had a gluten free meal. His statement was that "he could not go against the disclaimer but that you 'should be alright'". It tasted great. I was violently ill the next day and for subsequent weeks afterwards. I will not be going back to Olive Garden any time soon.

VERY impressed!!! Olive Garden had their own gluten free menu, which I asked for; they let me keep it for future reference.. I had the penne pasta with garlic and basil, AND IT WAS AMAZING. I am gluten sensitive and it didn't bother my stomach one bit! Tastes normal too!

We eat there frequently. Our son is celiac and he has not had any problems there. He says the GF noodles are not very good. He has gotten some chicken dishes they made GF.

I ordered a salad with no croutons and the dressing on the side. I explained that celiac disease and that I cannot have gluten which is wheat barley or rye. I also ordered the gluten-free rotini, gluten-free marinara sauce, and the shrimp. This was the create your own pasta. My waiter had celiac disease also. So this helped me too feel confident that he was knowledgeable on what I can and cannot eat and cross contact.

They accidentally mixed up my GF noodles with the regular noodles. I got really sick, although I noticed after a few bites. I won't be able to trust them again.

I have celiac and have never had symptoms from eating there. The selections are limited for gluten free., but are getting better. I met girl friends there for lunch once. They didn't have some of the items I asked for, so I ordered substitutions. The other girls had $5-$6 lunches while I was charged $26!.
