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.

Server said they will clean the grill to ensure safe preparation of chicken Parmesan. Salad for my whole table came without Croutons. I tested my food before eating and it was gluten free. No reactions!

There is one soup on the menu that is gf. The salad is safe & the dedicated gf menu you can find online does help find a few limited options that are available (gf pasta available), but seeing as how this is an Italian restaurant, limited options are to be expected.

There are only 2 entrees on the gluten free menu pasta and chicken Parmesan. I ordered the chicken Parmesan it wasn’t real chicken, it was horrible and it’s not breaded with gf bread crumbs. You get a small portion of pasta also. I eat gf chicken Parmesan at Aurelio’s all the time, it’s breaded and delicious! I would never eat here again.
