    Only gluten free option was salad and rotini pasta with a basic marinara or meat sauce, which I can make at home for far less than $10 a bowl.

    I am a frequent visitor here. I've felt Ill twice of all the times I've eaten there which has probably been about 10 times. Their GF options are decent. Unfortunately the pasta often times comes a bit uncooked!

    The waiter messed up my order & put bread crumbs on my meal. I was ill for days. They did give us a gift card to replace my meal but didn't have any desire to go back. Very limited selection.

    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.

    I'm never a fan of their gf pasta and menu options. It's just doesn't taste good to me. It's just okay. They have a gf menu featuring different pasta combination as well as a gf gnocchi soup. I usually just stick with salad as the gf pasta just isn't for me.

    our server was nice but not fully trained by management. ordered GF chicken and it was served on regular pasta. after taking a few bites of pasta I knew it was not GF pasta. server eventually brought the correct chicken and pasta but by then I was stressed out about eating the real pasta and I lost my appetite. no mgr ever visited our table and my dish was not taken off the check. needless to say I did not have a Plesant evening following this visit to The Olive Garden. won't be going back!

    If you have to eat out at Olive Garden with other people as a GF person it's really not bad and I had no problem wth the server understanding my needs. She made sure the salad would have no croutons, checked that the dressing was gluten free, and ensured the pasta would be made safely. Really you just can't have the breadsticks. However it is a very limited menu for GF and sometimes they run out of the pasta so maybe call ahead to check.

    *** Please write honest reviews so others have up to date information on choices*** Server claimed all gf pasta is prepared away from gluten, got half way through when I found a spaghetti noodle in my mouth. 20 minutes in the bathroom, then puked for about the same. puked until I dry heaved.

    Went there last night and requested the gluten sensitive menu. I ordered the grilled chicken Parmesan and asked that it be prepared gluten free due to my allergy. It arrived grilled but topped with breadcrumbs, when I brought it to the servers attention she said well the menu didn't say it did NOT come with breadcrumbs. They "fixed" it but it was so quick I'm pretty sure they just wiped it off since I am having a reaction.

    No one (not even management ) understood what gluten was... I was served a plate covered in breaded chicken that I ordered off the "gluten free" menu... ended up being charged 16$ for gf pasta (plain marinara) and a plain nasty piece of "grilled" (probably microwaved ) chicken... I was literally told by the manager that they didn't know how to make anything gf😳

    I've been there twice now and enjoyed both times. They have clearly marked gf options. The staff is knowledgeable of cross contamination and will let you know what can be done. They have a system in place for letting the kitchen staff know - always a good sign in my book. The pasta was cooked well (not a mushy mess). The 2nd time the waitress wasn't as familiar with gf, so she asked questions and found out answers. Again, another good sign in my book. I have a wheat intolerance, not celiac, so minute cross contamination is not a problem for me. It's now on my go to list of restaurants for ease of ordering and filling options.

    Went here for dinner tonight & ordered off the gluten free menu. I even brought a copy of it with me. I emphasized to the waiter that I had celiac disease and reinforced how bad my reaction was to gluten. He and the manager assured me my food was gluten free but I got an absolutely horrible reaction to it. Called the restaurant & talked to the manager who was putting in an insurance claim and was offered a gift certificate!! I will not go there again & highly recommend that anyone with this disease avoid this place for your health!!! If I could have rated it a 0 I would have!

    I had an awful experience here three years ago. I've always loved Olive Garden until then. When I got my pasta, it tasted like regular pasta so I made the waitress go back to check and she said it was gluten free. I couldn't even eat 1/3 of my food I was so full. About twenty minutes after we left i got sick. I was sick all night long and into the next day. I have not been back since.

    I ordered gf rotini pasta with grilled chicken and pesto sauce. I waited 30 min for my meal( curb side pickup). I received my food and paid the bill. I opened the container and tasted the pasta. OMG!!!!! 😡😡😡 the pasta was undercooked and dry with no sauce in sight. This cost me $16. with tax. I called the server back to look at my food. She called the mngr and told her twice that I didn't like my food. I was angry. I called the mngr myself and she refunded my money. I can't understand why it's so hard. to boil pasta until it's done. The whole dish was a disaster!!!.

    I appreciate that Olive Garden offers anything. for the longest time, they had two pasta options: primavera and marinara, plus steak or salmon entrees. the house salad is gluten free without the croutons, which is great. however, it's a bit acidic without any bread to go with it... but recently they've ben expanding the menu. the new pesto pasta was pretty good, though a whole dish of it is too much. next time I might ask to get half pesto, have bolognese (which is also a new offering). also, they just added the toscana soup to the GF list, which is very exciting!

    Service was great but halfway through my meal, I found tons of regular macaroni shells mixed in with my gluten free rotini! I was told that the order wasn't rung as "allergy" but I have a feeling it wouldn't have mattered. Cross contamination is one thing, but actually having gluten shells in my pasta is unacceptable. The manager was nice and gave me a refund for the meal. I will not be coming back.

I tell our server we are GF and she sticks a basket of bread in front of me. Apparently, she didn't care when I said our table is GF due to celiacs. Never again!!!!!
