On the bright side, they have a couple of options for “gluten friendly,” which is better than some places. If you are extremely sensitive, allergic, or celiac, I would avoid. The pasta option is marinara or meat sauce on rotini, or you can get chicken parm, steak, or salmon. The salad is supposedly GF without croutons, however, the dressing does have sulfites if you’re sensitive/allergic. I opted for the $12.99 “box of noodles + jar of Prego” (okay, it’s a step up) and within 20 minutes, I felt like I was being stabbed by thousands of tiny knives, and writing this maybe an hour later, I’m super itchy, so I’m going to say there’s a fair amount of cross contamination, even though the server asked questions. The server was friendly and did his best to help, and honestly, we were there as the kiddo’s bday pick (and had a gift card). Next time, I’d just enjoy the company while they eat and I just avoid food totally. ;)

For 3 meals including 1 app, 1 beer, 1 tea, was $90 for price context.

I peeked at my husband’s menu and did not see GF markings. The online ordering offers a very limited GF menu.

I’m very sensitive to cross contamination, but not celiac as far as we can tell based on a blood test only.

When asking the server for more info on the one gluten free item I could see on the menu, she told me that the steak and salmon plates were also good gf options BUT reminded me that it’s a “one stop kitchen” so cross contamination is likely. I took my chances and stuck with the “make your own pasta plate” with the gluten free pasta. Still had a reaction - not a full blown flair but enough to feel something was definitely off.

Also, there is no gluten free bread.

They were really great with celiac. The manager came out and explained everything and they made sure everyone in the kitchen knew. They made me feel really comfortable and I had no symptoms which is great for a chain restaurant! Would definitely recommend this location.

Dinner was great and now some Olive Gardens are adding GF breadsticks to their menu but unfortunately this now does not have that. :( Also if you need GF pasta you do make your own pasta and choose GF pasta.

My experience was really good! When I ordered the gluten free pasta our waiter asked if there was an allergy or if I just like gluten free pasta, once we told him I had an allergy he made sure there was no cross contamination and even had the manager come over to assure us that there was no cross contamination. It was a great experience!
