    CELIACS BEWARE NOT SAFE!!!When I called to ask about cross contamination and they didn't know what it was and then when I explained what it was they said they would be accommodating and said there would not be an issue. Once we got there and talked to the kitchen manager who is very nice he assured me that precautions would be taken. I noticed when they brought the food out it was all on the same tray and one of the plates of the contaminated food was touching on my food. So I ended up eating in immediately after was sick definitely got cross-contamination from somewhere in that restaurant. The staff are very nice, although they are definitely not cross-contamination safe. Our food took forever to come out the table next to us who arrived 30 minutes after we were there received their food before we did. Ordered a salad without croutons and the salad came with croutons on it. So we had to send it back. They just do not take proper precautions to ensure safety. Celiacs beware you will get extremely sick eating here. At this location in Miamisburg, OH

    There is a dedicated GF menu however it has 3 things on it ; salmon, gf rotini and salad minus croutons. I got the rotini with meat sauce and the salad. It was not a horrible dinner. I was glad they had the rotini because it's nice to be able to eat pasta when at an Italian restaurant!

    I tried eating some of their gluten sensitive food, not gluten free as they don't have a dedicated part of the kitchen, and I became very ill. I'm not sure if it's because not all the elements involved, sauce, meats, etc., aren't gluten free or if there's too much cross contamination but I do not recommend eating here.

    Gluten makes me sick. They have a gluten free menu. They have the steak Alfredo on the gluten free menu but I asked if I could do the steak Gorgonzola Alfredo but gluten free. The waiter said the Alfredo sauce is NOT gluten free. He went back to check when I said it's on the gluten free menu. He checked and it most definitely is thickened with a wheat product. If gluten makes you sick, DO NOT EAT AT OLIVE GARDEN. I will never go back. Rocco's up the street has some gluten free options and seemed very allergy aware during my first visit there (after leaving Olive Garden).

    I took a chance despite some of the terrible reviews. I ordered the pasta with marinara as I figured that has the lowest potential to get screwed up. The waitress seemed knowledgeable. She knew which soups were gf, though I declined to get any. The pasta came out and clearly looked like corn pasta. It was ok tasting. Would not recommend going out of your way to go here, but if you end up here with a group, you can survive, or at least I did.

    We informed the waiter that our son had celiac disease, but as we were boxing up his supposedly gluten-free pasta, we found a wheat spaghetti noodle mixed in. We hope our experience is uncommon, but do not feel comfortable returning.

    I went there in May after seeing the website boast about gluten free accommodations. The waiter assured me what I ordered was gluten free and would be safe. My chicken tasted shrimpy. Not only did I get glutened, I got food poisoning as well. Trust me, I know the difference. When I called to complain, guess what they told me? That the chicken they fed me was BREADED but because it was pan seared you couldn’t tell. PLEASE do not eat here if you are sensitive to gluten in any way, especially if you have celiac. The only thing I would say you could confidently eat there is the house salad without croutons but even then it’s risky. Stay safe out there!!!

    I loved Olive Garden before I had to change my diet to gluten free. I went here two times after to try the gf options and I was sick both times for 1-2 days. I talked to a waitress who informed me they use the same water for multiple noodles. She said she’s seen them use the same water for gf noodles.

    Ordered their salad with no cheese (also allergic to milk fat) was told after a few bites that the dressing has parmigiana in it. Ok miscommunication. Tried them a second time for a late lunch, stressed the celiac and dairy allergy and still got sick this time obviously a gluten issue.not sure if it was a shared pan or strainer but either way I’ll never go back to another one.

    The gf options were VERY limited (only 4 choices). Ordered the gf pasta and it tasted as though it was pulled out of the freezer, thrown in the microwave, and had a pesto sauce tossed in top. The pesto sat in pools of oil and the pasta was hard on top and chewy underneath. Do yourself a favor and don’t go. (The waitress we had was phenomenal....she needs to get a new job...she was way too sweet for this place!).

    Told us to not even sit down if we had someone with Celiac's as the kitchen made zero effort to separate foods, even cooking GF foods in same water/unwashed pans that had just held wheat-containing foods. At least they were honest.

    Staff were friendly and nice, however the food wasn’t great and I had a reaction later. I’m gluten-sensitive, not celiac, so me having a reaction must mean that the pasta directly had gluten, not just cross-contamination. If I had a reaction I would not advice anyone with Celiac to eat there.

    Yikes. Do not go here. They have GF steak with fettucine on the menu, and that is a lie...they brought a plate of steak, mashed potatoes, and 100% glutenous fettucine alfredo. We were so nice about asking "hey, really, are you sure this is GF...? Cuz it looks too good to be true, and wife who can eat gluten says it tastes and feels like regular wheat fettucine...." .... waitress said it must be, since it is on GF menu.... we had her double check anyway...and of course, we were told OOPS, yeah, that is indeed regular fettucine. We tried so hard to let them gracefully make it better, but they offered to just bring an additional side of broccoli, leaving hubby the cross-contaminated steak and potatoes.... we said nah, we will just take food to go and pay for it and wife will eat it and we'll leave and call it a day if that is okay.... waitress tried to take steak and fettucine off bill and manager wouldnt let her! We were like "uh, really...? After we were so nice about this near poisoning....?" And she said manager said we had to pay for all food we were taking home...so we were like ok, then we dont have to take steak and fettucine home cuz we sure can't pay for food you mistakenly brought that wouldve made him really really ill if he had eaten it..." and waitress took that to manager, and it came off bill and we left steak&fettucine behind. We still tipped waitress on both meals bc she was nice despite being foiled repeatedlt by menu and manager. When she saw that, she came back and warmly thanked us AND OFFERED TO SEND US HOME WITH A BAG OF BREADSTICKS.... so....moral of the story: if you are on this app bc you need to eat GF, you CANNOT trust this place.

    Sometimes the wait staff isn’t knowledgeable but if you order soup or salad it’s usually okay. I have had visible cross contamination where a piece of pasta is in mixed in where it shouldn’t be. But they always immediately correct it and they’ll get you new food.
