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!
Went there with my siblings and I told them I had Celiac's and they just rolled there eyes. after I got this gluten free pasta my sister had to basically carry me out. worse cross contamination I've ever had. will not go here again
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 ; (
The waiters at this location are rude. I ordered a gltuen free pasta with chicken and pesto sauce, they gave me 3 small pieces of chicken not even strips and the pesto sauce was oily. I won't be going back to the Bowie location, for better service go to the Waldorf MD location!
Only giving it a 1 star because I couldn't give Olive Garden a 0. They served me regular pasta after I double checked it was gluten free and then they came back after and said "Oops". I was so so sick.
I didn’t even consider Olive Garden as a choice. Both milk and wheat make me emergency room visit sick and pain for hours. It is a hypersensitivity, not allergies. I ended up there for a work lunch. I have food in my office so no big deal. They were totally awesome. The manager checked on me, the chief come out before he cooked. Please they were discreet so it didn’t make a scene.
Terrible as every review has said. I was stuck since others had chosen the location. My pasta was raw on one side of the plate and mush on the other. My chicken was llitteraly about 2 oz. , the salad was okay. I am mildly sick from it. Fortunately I ate very little of my meal. I will never go back. 2018 I went back recently. It is so much better! They made my favorite soup gf🤗 toscanna. the pasta is good too with the meat sauce and a sausage. I have been 4 or more times at coconut point in estero fl with no problems.
I have tried to eat here a few times and although they are cautious... the gluten free food was absolutely disgusting. The salmon costs $17.00 and you cannot have any spices on it. I didn't eat it and I will eat the frozen filets I cook at home just because it is good for me.... so I'm not that picky.... it is just really not good. The vegetables also were unseasoned... It is really not hard to cook Gluten Free.... and have gluten free spices on hand.... just don't pretend to have a gluten free m menu if you aren't going to make an effort to give the food some taste......
Manager says they use separate water for gf pasta, cook says they use same water, waiter says if Celiac don't order pasta there. So I took his advice, ate a salad and left. Sadly I really wanted some lovely GF pasta like I had in Victoria Olive Garden. :-( Waiter did not know what gluten was. Unaware they offered GF pasta but was willing to learn. Manager unwilling to come to my table.
No bread, but GF/DF pasta and meat sauce or chicken Parmesan minus the breading and cheese. Side salad with oil and vinegar was only DF option. No soups, even though our waitstaff one time tried to reassure me one was gf. Not been sick if I stick with the one dish.
Our server gave my husband the regular pasta instead of the gluten-free pasta. When we brought it to his attention after he’d already taken some bites he asked if we wanted to swap it out. Needless to say he got so sick he missed a flight out with my family the next day.The managers comped our meal and took down our names for insurance purposes but having my husband not be on vacation with us due to an error like that left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
I ordered the Parmesan pesto gluten free pasta and the salmon, both off of the gluten free menu provided. I kept asking every time I talked to the manager and told him my situation right as he came to our table. I got my food, asked again if it was gluten free and was reassured it was not to worry. Halfway through my meal I found regular noodles in my pasta and told him immediately and the manager came and said they have rules to avoid these situations and that the waiter must not have been trained properly. The waiter came back and said he pressed the wrong button and the meal was put in as a regular meal and not gluten free. The manager handled it properly and her reassuring about separate cooking area would be the only reason I would go back.
Friends frequently ask me to eat lunch there. Each time I have had so called gluten free entrées I have gotten sick. The restaurant does not guarantee that items are gluten free.
You have a very tiny limited menu on those crazy little iPads. And don’t have dreams of having appetizers or desserts! It’s salad or 1 kind of soup for an appetizer and no dessert but you can watch everyone else eat dessert!! Never going back. Can make better at home.
Limited items to choose from... Pasta marinara, grilled chicken parm, a fish and a steak. There is one soup you can choose (something with sausage if I remember correctly) or salad without the croutons. That's pretty much it. Like most places, no apps are GF. Not worth the money or time. I make my own Francese, Vodka, Alfredo sauces and a bolognese and experiment with sausages, meatballs, and veggies. They're an Italian restaurant, they can do better than that. I'm an amateur and can make it work. Pinterest it for ideas!
I gave it 4 stars only because there's only 1 dish really available to gluten intolerant people, the gluten free pasta with meat sauce and either sausage or chicken. I wish there was more option but the option available I've never had a reaction to and they take the allergy seriously
They have a gluten sensitive menu with a lengthy disclaimer at the bottom stating basically we will try but there is gluten everywhere. There are no prices and 3 options, one soup, and salad without croutons. The staff was very confident and seemed knowledgeable which was nice. I only had the soup and salad and got sick.
Staff is not educated on what gluten is.. Probably due to the fact that the managers don’t know, either. They have a gluten SENSITIVE menu (instead of a Gluten Free) but there’s a risk for cross contamination due to the lack of knowledge among employees in the kitchen, servers, and due to the fact the gluten free pasta is cooked with the normal pasta.
Recently ate at Olive Garden, the staff was very good and knowledgeable about my wheat allergy. From the gluten free menu I ordered the Soup and the rotini with meat sauce. The soup was even all you could eat and delicious. The rotini was really good too. I had no reactions. I will definitely eat here again.
Not celiac safe. Ordered the gluten free rotini (their only gluten free pasta) and double checked that it would be boiled in clean water. Our server was very caring and helpful and made sure the cook knew we had a child with celiac with us. But we found 2 spaghetti noodles in the dish. Thankfully we noticed before feeding it to our child. Definitely won’t be dining here again.
I got super sick from CC here.
Much better than the last time I tried it. They still need to do some work to have quality gf food, but I was able to have the Zuppa Toscana, gf pasta with pesto and chicken. My family loves OG so it was nice to be able to have dinner there with them. Plus they still have wine!
