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.

They gave me a separate salad. I had GF pasta with Parmesan pesto sauce and grilled chicken. It was surprisingly good!

2 very good experiences with waiting staff responsive to multiple food allergies. My meal was tasty and excellent, alternatives were suggested by the waiters who checked with the chef on some items to ensure I was not getting into anything that might cause symptoms. Croutons were not put on my salad which happens often in other places despite announcing my sensitivities. Fortunately, I do not have Celiac.

I would give no stars but the app won't let me. Just like Dominos, Olive Garden offer GF just to say they offer it. The pasta is terrible and the "Steamed" veggies are dipped in the pasta water. Not a good place to go if you are intolerant or Celiac.

I've always enjoyed Olive Garden in the past (recently diagnosed with celiac) but their gluten free menu, as of when we tried to go there a couple of nights ago, is a gluten-sensitive menu only and does not guarantee against cross-contamination. Not suitable for celiacs yet. Very sad for me.

The staff was not knowledgeable about celiac disease at all. I was assured my food would be safe. I started eating my gluten free pasta, and I found pieces of normal pasta. I literally asked if they could make sure their wouldn’t be any CC. It took days for my body to recover. We won’t be back.

I am vegan and gf, and I needed to find something in the area. I tried Olive Garden because of the gf pasta. I just ordered a lunch portion with marinara. It was actually pretty tasty, but then I spotted a long piece of regular spaghetti mixed in. They apologized and said they’d make a new one. After waiting a very long time, I was brought another plate of gf pasta with spaghetti mixed in. It is very likely that they use the same strainer, and they are definitely not careful at all about cross-contamination. The manager offered to remake it a third time himself, and it seemed ok that time. Do not go there! There is no evidence that the kitchen staff has had any kind of training about food allergies or cross-contamination. I see this as a management/training issue. They were probably told to just make it again, rather than being shown the correct way. I know it’s not a dedicated gf restaurant, but seriously??

They had a gluten free menu and the food was really good and filling but there was a little wait but only like 15 min other than that the service was really good but I went with 4 other people and 5 minutes after we left we all had massive stomach cramps and had to poop so we went to the dicks sporting good next door

I got the salad and Zuppa Toscana. Server took care to protect me. I don’t know if I would have ventured to get other items out of concerns for cross-contamination. There were several gluten free options not marked on the menu but listed on the website. I have celiac and did not get sick. I would eat here again.
