I ordered the gluten free pasta and they waited to tell me that they did not have any gluten free pasta as they were bringing out everyone else's food. Most of the staff seems irritated to make sure food is gluten free.

Several times ordered gluten free rotini and other noodles were mixed in. We brought it to the managers attention and he said need to always indicate for celiac disease because if you don’t they might cook the noodles with the wheat noodles. Well we did that and it happened again. Goodbye Olive Garden at this location. Tired of getting sick.

Great service, food was also very good. Didn’t get sick from food. Sad that only a couple sauces are gluten free wish that they had more, and they only offer one type of gluten free noodle, but none of their other non gluten dishes use a noodle that’s shaped like the gluten free one, which makes it easy to tell if you’ve been given gluten instead of the gluten free. The have one gluten free soup, and when ordering the salads just make sure to ask for no croutons. So, other than the limited sauce options, it was overall a great experience.

A server checked and the gluten free pasta does not come into contact with gluten. The chef came to our table and informed me that the food I chose it breaded, but can be grilled in a pan will olive instead of butter since I have eat gluten free and dairy free. He assured me every precaution would be made to ensure my food was GF and DF. While this was a new experience for our server, he was interested 8n learning and kept assuring us that each item he brought out was carefully prepared.

They cook all the noodles in the same water. Even the "gluten free" ones. The manager has no idea about gluten free allergies either. I've talked with one of the two higher managers. I would not trust it. The most recent review by “Angela” or the blond lady that give this place five stars is not celiac. Possibly gluten-intolerant, but if she had pasta, then she had noodles that are gluten free, but made in the same boiling water as every other kind of noodles that do contain gluten. If you are celiac, please do not eat here. Their menu only says “gluten-friendly” and if you don’t believe me about the noodles, then click the part on this app that shows the menu and read one of the first few numbers up at the top of the nutritional/allergen menu and see for yourself.

They have a gluten-free menu, but it's pretty depressing; there's only 4 or 5 options. I ordered the salmon and got a plain piece of grilled fish with plain broccoli. No sauce, no seasoning, nothing... not at all what's advertised on the menu. We got the big salad for the table (without croutons), but they didn't offer cheese and put dressing on the side.

Apparently they try to deal with gluten free by making the food as boring as possible. I didn't have a reaction, but you've got much better options in the area.

When the office gets Olive Garden catered they always order a gluten free something for me and it’s always so good! I usually get the rotini with meat sauce I have gotten it with chicken parmigiana as well. Love the salad too! So far I have not gotten sick!

Horrible experience. Based on their menu, their gf procedures, and the person I spoke to over the phone, I thought I could trust them. But they mixed up my (gf) order and my mom's (gluten) order. They put her sausages on my gf pasta, so we thought the pasta without sausages was mine. Turns out someone in the kitchen mixed up the order. We didn't realize this until I ate a few bites and realized something was off. I was so angry and upset. I won't try them again for a while,and if I EVER go back, I'll demand that a manager or head cook watch my meal every step of the way and bring it out to me themselves.

There was maybe one or two options for celiac, and that was just plain noodles with marinara sauce. Salad can be made without croutons but I still wouldn’t trust it to have no cross contamination. Staff wasn’t very knowledgeable

I had eaten at this location many times without any reactions. However, tonight I found regular pasta in my gluten free pasta once I was home with my to go order. I had already eaten most of it and when I found one regular noodle I looked and found a couple more cross contaminated. I did have a reaction and I’m very disappointed. I’m assuming they use the same pasta water to boil gf pasta. Be very cautious if celiac.

Very limited GF options. However, I asked the waitress if the gluten free rotini was at risk for cross contamination. She told me that they take extra measures to prevent it if you specifically have allergies. Let your waiter know that you need the GF pasta cooked separately due to allergy reasons. I got the pasta with the meat sauce and sauteed shrimp and I was fine after. It was cooked well and I enjoyed the meal.

Ordered the GF chicken Parmesan. Started eating like normal, and food tasted great. Then noticed a regular spaghetti noodle mixed in with the GF pasta. I alerted the waiter, who then said he’d speak with the manager. He ended up bringing the chef over who apologized, took the entire plate off the ticket, offered to remake the meal & assured me that they were not supposed to boil the GF pasta in the same pot as regular. But, with allergies, I was done and wasn’t taking any chances especially after already exposing myself to some cross contamination already. They did the right thing afterwords, but beforehand, it wasn’t correct.

Olive Garden only has rotini pasta that is gluten free, so when I found a fettuccine noodle in my GF rotini pasta, they told me to “just pick it out”. This is after I explained to them cross contamination from having celiac disease. I will never eat here again.

The staff was not knowledgeable about celiac disease at all. I was assured my food would be safe. When I started eating my gluten free pasta, and I found pieces of normal pasta. I literally asked if they could make sure their wouldn’t be any CC. It took days for my body to recover. We won’t be back.

They don’t have much since they took the chicken cutlet and mashed potatoes with spinach off the menu. They have gluten free pasta and you can get marinara or meat sauce and that’s it! They will serve you salad without croutons. I still go but am sad when I literally have to eat the same thing every time.

I had checked on their website and found they had some gluten-free options but just to be safe I called the restaurant beforehand. I was told they had some gluten free options which could be found on their website and if I needed extra assistance once at the restaurant regarding the proper care of my meal, that would be provided. Regardless, I came in mentally prepared to have a hard time with the waiter (which I did). As I was given the menu I noticed that the gluten free options were not listed. I kindly showed the waiter the gluten free option I wanted from my phone and asked if I was able to get that. The waiter did not seem informed on gluten intolerance at all. After a lot of back and forth, I was told that the only thing gluten free was the actual pasta, thus none of the sauce and possibly toppings were gluten free. So I was offered plain pasta and that's all! As someone with Celiac Disease, I found this extremely disrespectful. Please don't lie and say you have options for those with allergies when you really don't. Although I know gluten intolerance and celiac disease are not common, it is not proper to give false advertisement of your food.

The food is good, and you can get a gluten free meal here, but there is really only one option for that. They don’t offer a gluten free soup, and only have one choice of pasta/sauce that is gluten free. Even though I specified I was gluten free, and asked for no croutons, they did bring the salad out with croutons. They don’t have a GF dessert on the menu, but you can order vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce.

Kitchen cuts corners. Had a to-go order last night, and upon opening the container labeled gluten free (which looked like a kids portion) I found shells and spaghetti noodles mixed in with the rotini pasta. They only do rotini for GF. Apparently to save time, they just cooked it in the same water as all the other pastas they serve.

Reckless only scratches the surface.

The manager was apologetic, refunded my portion of the meal, and offered to make me a new one... which would have been fair if I was still there, but driving back while my family enjoyed their dinner, and then eating by myself after didn’t seem worth the mediocre portion of “noodles with sauce”.

I could do that at home, in the same amount of time, and feel 200% more confident in the final product.

Request Rachel (server) and John (manager). Ask them to make you my signature dish (if you can have butter & cheese) gf rotini, grilled chicken, broccoli, cheese and garlic butter. It was delicious!! It should be on the menu and named the "Celiac Jen Special" 😁 I would order Alfredo sauce if it were gf.

I ordered GF pasta with marinara, which wasn’t the best GF pasta I’ve tasted. I also enjoyed the Zuppa Toscana, which was delicious. It was take-out during the pandemic, and the take out organization was top notch. My food was very well labeled, and I did not get sick. The rest of my party also said the pasta was mushy (with gluten), so maybe pasta just doesn’t travel well.

I used to go here before being diagnosed, the food was great. Although, I went back recently and there were very few gf options. I can’t remember what I had but I did NOT get sick which was good. The staff was nice but it was sad not being able to have the typical dishes. You can get a really basic chicken and pasta dish. You’re better off making something at home!

I dined here yesterday and specified I had a gluten allergy. The waitress suggested I look at the allergen info on the Ziosk to confirm what u could order. I ended up getting the GF rotini with meat sauce and meatballs. The zuppa toscana is also GF, so that was my soup. Their breadsticks contain gluten, as does 90% of the menu.

I could tell there was not any gluten at all in my meal, and our food was served hot and fresh. I do wish they had more GF pastas available than rotini. I believe their salmon dish is also a GF option, as well as zucchini noodles.

Another suggestion I would make to the Olive Garden chain is to offer a few GF desserts. All of their dessert menu contains gluten.

NOT CELIAC SAFE - ordered a curbside pickup order off the gluten free menu, and marked the name on the order as “GLUTEN FREE/ALLERGY” to be extra safe. Got all the way home and looked and food (was not marked separately) and was not gluten free. Luckily I have eaten at other Olive Gardens and already knew which type of noodles were GF and which weren’t, otherwise I would have had no idea. Called the store & they were apologetic and offered to remake it correctly, bummer is now I have to drive another 20 minutes each way to pick up my food (again).

There is ONE gluten free dish, it is gross and tastes metallic. I do not recommend for celiacs!

Not celiac safe. I was glutened few days ago after ordering the GF noodles. and after sharing my experience with fb celiac support group a lot commented that OG shares pots and water. I don’t know if this is true but makes sense because within 10 mins I was sick.

Pasta tastes great but I was glutened after eating it. Not celiac friendly.

Olive Garden currently has not had any of its gluten free options in the last 4 months due to COVID. Not currently a gluten free establishment.

When the waiter asks "What's gluten?" it's time to start worrying. It went downhill from there. The first salad came with croutons and chicken parmesan came with pasta that was not gluten free.

Celiac friendly?

Asked for a gluten free chicken Parmigian over gf rotini and it was amazing. Sad that can't offer a gluten free salad.
