We didn't even eat because we sat there for over ten minutes with no server and looked at the menu that had ridiculous prices for almost everything. I can make good Gf pasta at home for $3, I'm not going to pay 13 just for pasta I can make at home and 17 for chicken and pasta!

I love their gluten free pasta!! I think it's cooked so well and it takes like real (non gluten) pasta! I could eat it forever! But if you want more options for being gluten free I would not choose to eat here, definitely a very limited selection of choices.

I was severely glutened here after telling the waiters I have celiac. I had to send my plate back twice because the noodles were obviously not gluten free. After all that, they charged us exta for my meal because it was gluten free!

The gf noodle are always dry. They were so disgusting last time I had her take it back and bring me chicken also not the best. They need to seriously get some better food. I am in love with their salad though! I could eat that all day

I also feel that for such a well renowned chain they are seriously lacking in the gf department. The gf noodles are disgusting. I actually had the waitress take it back and she removed my meal from the bill and also brought me more salad. So yes they made it right. But the salad is the only redeeming factor.

I don't believe that anyone at Olive Garden has tasted what they are feeding us GF customers. I had the penne pasta with marinara sauce and chicken. The whole thing was tasteless with no flavor anywhere. No season on the chicken, stewed tomatoes and undercooked pasta. The salad was excellent, but I won't be going back.

No prices on GF menu and what I got was pretty lack luster. I suspect GF pasta was cooked in same water as regular pasta. I had "issues" later in the evening. Wanted to treat my wife to a nice dinner out but my meal was poorly executed. Even the added chicken was just thrown on as an after thought and it was about as tasty as shoe leather.

I had the penne pasta with marinara sauce and grilled chicken. I thought the portion size was ok. It was about $15. It came with salad. I requested no croutons. It tasted good but a few of the noodles were crusty. I was really hoping they had an alfredo sauce and gluten free breadsticks would be a dream come true. So far no expansion in that area ; (

I got the steak and broccoli and had some salad sans croutons. I don’t blame the establishment necessary because I had read so much about the cross contamination and still went for it.

Every dish came back as if ordered on the typical fashion with gluten. Mistakes happen, but it was clear the kitchen and even the server had no awareness of gluten. It’s what I expected and went because a friend wanted to go so I was fine with it. I don’t get extremely ill but could tell there was cross contamination the next day.

Never had a cross contamination. The pasta is great. More gluten free options would be nice.

Horrible!!! I have celiac disease and explained that to the waiter. She explained they were great with allergies… then proceeded to bring the salad with croutons when I asked for them without. I got my pasta and while eating it I found a normal noodle in it. I was so sick last night and feel horrible today.

They cook all the noodles in the same water. Even the "gluten free" ones. The manager has no idea about gluten free allergies either. I've talked with one of the two higher managers. I would not trust it. The most recent review by “Angela” or the blond lady that give this place five stars is not celiac. Possibly gluten-intolerant, but if she had pasta, then she had noodles that are gluten free, but made in the same boiling water as every other kind of noodles that do contain gluten. If you are celiac, please do not eat here. Their menu only says “gluten-friendly” and if you don’t believe me about the noodles, then click the part on this app that shows the menu and read one of the first few numbers up at the top of the nutritional/allergen menu and see for yourself.

Horrible experience!! The waiter said they had no gluten free options. He wouldn't ask a manger my questions because he already knew it all, then he just moved on and took everyone's order and ignored me. I will not go back.
