Really yummy and I’ve never gotten sick! I always get the gf pasta with meat sauce, I would be hesitant about trying anything too iffy with contamination (they have a chicken parm that I’m not gonna try). I’ve never had any problems and the noodles are really good!

Olive Garden has always been very accommodating for our gluten free needs. The servers have always been knowledgeable about ingredients and making sure we order safely. I'm not sure about the cross contamination risk, but as a sensitive celiac I've never gotten sick here when dining with my non-gluten free family.

The gluten free penne pasta is tasty, although it fell apart easily and they only offer it for two dishes. They also have a gf menu, listing a few other non pasta options.

Let's be real about olive garden....the food is good but being a very commercial chain the food is not fantastic, authentic Italian cuisine. They do have a gluten free menu (pretty much pasta and some meat) and food always tastes good!

The gluten free pasta options are disappointing. You are better off making your own.

There was one Gluten-free pasta option. There were two gluten-free sauce options. I spoke very specifically about my celiac status. The waiter asked the kitchen a couple of questions for me regarding soup and salads. When my gluten-free pasta dish arrived, four bites in and I see a fettuccine noodle in my pasta dish. I calmly asked the waiter about it. He in turn went and asked the kitchen about it. He came back and confirmed that they cook gluten-free pasta in the standard glutinous pasta water. He assured me “if you have an allergy, they cook it otherwise “. I was astonished! Of course the manager was involved she said all the right things… Didn’t deny their poor actions....Tried very hard to give me a gift card for there a restaurant. I assured her I couldn’t possibly come back. The poor waiter was nervous… I even actually felt kind of bad for the manager… But I decided I needed to write this review. There really is no question about it… There is zero consideration for people with celiac disease in this restaurant.

My "gluten free" pasta had a regular spaghetti and a regular fettuccine noodle in it.

In addition to that, there's one gluten free pasta dish. It's literally noodles and sauce. So boring and NOT safe.
