Menu hasn’t changed in years, so your options are the same. However, you have to specify each portion of the meal separately. I ordered the GF pasta with red meat sauce, with salad as my side. She brought out a salad with croutons on top and said mine was in there! I said no, and as I was finishing she brought me an “individual “ salad without croutons and wouldn’t refill it. She also handed me the breadsticks… as if!!!

FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE! I am Celiac and I eat regularly at Olive Garden. This location on Jonestown Rd, Harrisburg, PA, goes above and beyond! Waitress was very knowledgeable and volunteered information like, “I informed the kitchen of your Celiac and they will change gloves and use extra precautions.” Then the manager came to our table and said he had been made aware of my gluten sensitivity and he talked with kitchen. Great food with full assurance. I had my usual: Zuppa Toscana, rotini pasta with meat sauce, 2 sausages. No issues at all - I’m very sensitive!

Our waiter was well informed and gave personal recommendations on the gluten sensitive menu. The Chicken Parmigiana was delicious. The portion size was huge- it was enough for two meals.

Delicious food at reasonable prices. Gluten free options are marked on the menu. A lot of the entrees can be substituted with gf pasta, or you can build your own pasta dish.

Gluten free pasta comes at no extra cost and is really delicious.

Staff is very aware and informed. Our waitress pointed out that the salad we got as a side had been made freshly to avoid any cross-contamination. I felt very safe.
