My waitress was Becca. Her sister has celiac disease so she was very knowledgeable about cross contamination. Super friendly and I walked out feeling great! Had the leftovers for lunch the next day. Will definitely go back and ask for Becca!

After telling our server that I was celiac she went to the back and got the manager. The manager talked with me made recommendations and I place my order for the sirloin, garlic Parmesan french fries and salad no croutons. When staff came to bring us our plates she immediately asked who is gluten-free? Then she said that they went through the whole procedure in the back to make my food. I enjoyed my food and had no reaction!

I would not recommend this particular restaurant. We have eaten at other Olive Garden restaurants without a problem. Unfortunately, my daughter started feeling the effects of gluten before we even got home (neuropathy in her legs and upset stomach). I called the manager at the time & they were very apologetic. We believe the waitstaff was new and "took off" the croutons from the salad instead of getting a new one. It is likely a training issue & may have been fixed. My daughter refuses to eat there now for obvious reasons.

You have to be careful here. You must be diluent and ask several questions. They will serve salad witout croutons, you can get them on the side. No bread, but soup Tuscana and is gf and delicious.

I just went to Olive Garden, stated my allergy, and then ordered Gluten Free pasta option they have, if I dont remember wrong it was Gluten Free Rotini with meat sauce. I didn’t get any reaction, (I usually get respiratory and skin reaction to gluten) and it was absolutely delicious!!!

I have eaten here twice and both times it was great! The servers are knowledgeable and their menu has everything labeled well so you can see what you have to choose from! They also instantly knew and aknowledged no croutons on the salad as soon as I mentioned a gluten allergy. I do wish they had more sauce options than what was listed.

I have celiac and have never had symptoms from eating there. The selections are limited for gluten free., but are getting better. I met girl friends there for lunch once. They didn't have some of the items I asked for, so I ordered substitutions. The other girls had $5-$6 lunches while I was charged $26!.
