The gluten free pasta at this Olive Garden is heated up in the same water as the regular pasta with gluten in it. I happened to ask of they use the same stirring utensil for the gluten free pasta as the regular pasta. That's when I was informed about how it it prepared. If you have celiac disease, I suggest not eating the pasta and asking how your food is prepared.

Food was great! Had the soup and salad for lunch. Delicious! Zappa Toscana was very yummy and filling. The manager was very helpful and came to our table to explained the precautions they take in preparing the gluten-free dishes. Server was also knowledgeable and helpful. Will definitely be coming back!

I love that I can still enjoy Olive Garden after being diagnosed! They switched from corn pasta to a better gluten free one now, and yum! Also, you can get the unlimited salad with no croutons which is one of my favorites!

I ordered the pasta pomodoro with chicken so I could judge for myself. Here is how they could improve it: boil it for two more minutes than you did, and stir it As You Boil. Then, it won't be partially cooked and partially under cooked. The sauce was fabulous, though. The wait staff was awesome about trying to make sure everything was perfect, though.

I originally gave them a good review, but my last experience a few months back changed that. When my GF rotini was brought out, there were other few pieces of regular pasta mixed in. When the manager came out, I questioned how it could happen with what their info says about cooking it in separate kettle. He admitted that it just comes in a bag and they microwave it. If that's what I'm going to eat, and still get cross-contaminated, I will just buy an Udi's frozen meal from the grocery and eliminate the risk. It was pretty disappointing.

They offer a decent selection of gf items. Our waiter at the time had gluten sensitivity and was super, super helpful with the whole process.

I'm surely biased as I now work at this location but I can say with confidence that all gf items automatically trigger the kitchen staff to change gloves and clean the grill (which they actually do). They take great care with all allergies and take this very seriously. All gf items are automatically flagged but other allergies require the server to flag the allergy for the kitchen.

The items marked gf on the menu are accurate but not complete. Look at the gf menu online or in the ziosk to see the other options (the zuppa Toscana and gf chicken parm are very tasty).

This place used to be really good with gluten free pasta ! But as I was eating my dinner I noticed regular pieces of pasta (spaghetti noodles AND shells) they only serve gluten free rotini so I know for a fact that the spaghetti and shells were not gluten free, (not celiac friendly) it’s a shame because the staff is very kind and friendly
