Review


When I asked my server for the salad off the designated gluten sensitive menu they asked me if it was okay if they served the dressing with the salad. I asked if it’s on the GF menu does that not mean I can eat it as it is listed and they replied with we don’t know. They asked the manager about it and was told it was safe to consume. I have no idea if my server listed my GF meals as preference or allergy even though I specifically stated it was for celiacs and it is not preference. The meal I got made me quite ill. I likely will not go back as it seems their staff is not properly trained on how to handle allergens. There may be a disconnect between the servers and the kitchen when it comes to allergens.

Surprisingly competent and professional. I was throughly impressed with the handling of my allergy, and it actually tasted good. Color me shocked!!! I’d recommend it.

They have a limited gluten free menu, however after reading reviews from other Olive Gardens, I wouldn’t trust the pasta. I just opted for a steak and broccoli and made them aware I was gluten free. They did try to put fettuccine Alfredo on the plate with it even though that’s not a gluten free option on their menu, so be aware. In other reviews I was seeing gluten sensors indicating gluten and people finding different types of pasta in with the gluten free rotini they ordered

I strictly stay with soup (Zuppa Toscana only) and salad (no croutons) and i have yet to have a problem. I’m not sure if i would trust them to make an actual dish.

Be vigilant. On two different visits they brought the wrong food. Yesterday the food looked alright till I started to eat underneath the gf noodles was regular spaghetti which I think means they cooked in same water as regular spaghetti , so the that rigatoni that came with my meal was contaminated so I had gluten reaction next day.
