Went yesterday and the waiter said they no longer had nutritional/allergy info available. He was also uneducated and told me a sauce was GF that was not (based on the corporate website). I had the GF pasta with pesto. It was vile. I couldn’t even pretend to eat the pasta.

2 stars because there was something for me to eat, but only 2 because it was gross and the wait staff was misleading.

I was very disappointed. Last time I came I had my choice of pasta dishes. This most recent visit I was informed that they had discontinued their GF menu. Why would a chain restaurant take such a step backwards? I basically was limited to steak, chicken or fish with no starches as a side because not even their potatoes could be made gluten free (SERIOUSLY?!?!). The manager did say they were looking into reintroducing GF pasta. I guess until then I will head to the Cheesecake Factory or Olive Garden instead.

So they only really offer a pasta substitute that is gluten free, which isn’t bad and if you have cooked gluten free pasta you know it’s temperamental, which in my case they did a great wonderful job. I was told only 2 sauces were considered gluten free which is a olive oil garlic one, & normal red sauce. I am sure both would be great but not ideal for things like fettuccine Alfredo, or other dishes. But I did opt for their garlic cream sauce since i am gluten intolerant not celiac but it’s been a hour and so far no issues. So i would just say for celiac it’s extremely limited, for gluten intolerance i would say at your own risk. But i very much enjoyed my meal, they made sure to let me know when it came out it was gluten free and if there were any issues they would take it back ASAP. Also they do offer to add sauce on the side if you want to try the sauce out before pouring it over your entire meal.

I asked the waiter about gluten free options and he said “We have pasta, but it is really bad. You don’t want it.” Then proceeded to tell me I should get the regular pasta instead. We walked out. Not gluten friendly at all!

The staff was NOT knowledgeable about gluten free. Don’t have a separate menu. I walked out because I didn’t feel certain about it at all.
