while the menu is quite limited, the food was good and service was excellent! our server made sure that my meal was prepared separately and someone came to the table to talk to me about their preparation process for gluten free dishes. my dish came out first and separately, and i felt very safe. my receipt also had “allergen guest” written on it literally four times so that added to my feeling of safety here. overall a great experience :)

Had a wonderful experience and my newly gf 8 year old loved the rotini with meat sauce with no tummy issues. They even changed their gloves and put together a salad just for her.

There were only 4 options on the menu, and I even found real pasta in my gluten free pasta. I was very upset with the overall experience.

Pros: They have a gluten free menu.

Cons: Not very knowledgeable about gluten free. They didn't have any gluten free desserts, breadsticks, and few pasta options. Also had a bit of an attitude and simply not celiac friendly.

Pasta was okay, but not spectacular. Definitely better options out there.

A small menu which always seems to result in over cooked mushy corn pasta.

I don't trust this place in regards to gluten free. They have a small gluten free menu but nobody really seemed to have any knowledge of it. The last time I went they placed a bag of their tempting bread Sticks in my to go sack.

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!
