Terrible as every review has said. I was stuck since others had chosen the location. My pasta was raw on one side of the plate and mush on the other. My chicken was llitteraly about 2 oz. , the salad was okay. I am mildly sick from it. Fortunately I ate very little of my meal. I will never go back. 2018 I went back recently. It is so much better! They made my favorite soup gf🤗 toscanna. the pasta is good too with the meat sauce and a sausage. I have been 4 or more times at coconut point in estero fl with no problems.

Our waiter was Fantastic, not sure if he still has his job after we were there, he tried his best to serve us a gluten and dairy free experience and went so far as to question the manager (who was sitting within ear shot of us) several questions. The manager's attitude was terrible. She acted more concerned about weather or not they would be sued for serving something, than she was about meeting the needs of a client.

The meal was OK, bland as usual when there is nothing to flavor it, and I did ask why the OLIVE GARDEN only puts a couple of olives in the salad. The Order of business is only 1 Black Olive per customer at the table, no more. (that is a corporate rule, as our gracious waiter told us.)

Would I dine at this Olive Garden again, the answer is NO, the managers attitude is enough to keep me away, regardless of any changes they might make to bring more gluten and dairy free items to the table.

Worst gf meal I ever had! Pasta was as hard as a rock.. Salad had 2 olives red onion & no salad dressing. Chicken was dry over cooked. It was so pathetic I didn't even want to send it back. Why have a gf menu if it's awful

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.
