A la Carte Tuesday, Gluten-Free

by Keith Brunell, Dallas, TX | Written on April 26, 2011

All of the links today are about gluten-free recipes and Maggiano’s ability to create amazing gluten-free dishes. There is an executive chef in every one of our restaurants and they can customize any dish for anyone! If you have a gluten intolerance or any other food allergy, please be sure to come in, tell your server your needs and the chef will gladly come to your table to talk about all of your options! Corn fusilli can be substituted in any of our non-stuffed pasta dishes or we can create a customized meal just for you!

Here is a great post from a blogger in Arizona talking about her recent experience at our Scottsdale location. She also has recipes, products and other establishments listed that offer gluten-free options!

    Didn’t think I would ever get to eat pasta at a restaurant again! Thanks for offering this, it is a huge deal to me.

    [...] Maggiano’s can substitute corn pasta in almost every dish. It’s amazing, and the portions are more than generous. http://blog.maggianos.com/2011/04/a-la-carte-tuesday-gluten-free/ [...]

    I had always loved Maggiano’s and was so upset when my kids were diagnosed with Celiac disease – no more pasta dinners for us.   However, we heard about the gluten-free option, came in and were blown away!   Not only can we get GF pasta, but even the cream sauces can be made gluten-free!    Thank you so much for caring about your patrons who have gluten issues but still want to enjoy great pasta.

    So glad to see that you have gluten free options.  I will be entertaining a group soon for dinner for a work occasion, and they requested Italian!  So excited to have a gluten free pasta option at a restaurant!

    I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease three days ago and I’m slowly working my way through my new life style–still trying to figure it all out. On the night I was diagnosed, I spent a couple of hours mourning the loss of my favorite foods and I assumed I would no longer be able to enjoy Maggiano’s, which is my absolute favorite restaurant. I am SO happy there are gluten-free options and can’t wait to try them.

    I have Celiac Disease – visited Maggiano’s recently and became very ill for several days after.  Was sent home with regular flour pasta (buy 1 get 1 to take home pasta) and after inspecting the meal I ate at the restaurant (leftovers at home) – realized it was not corn pasta either (it was dark in the restaurant when I ordered it).  Do not recommend!!

    So do they have wheat-free pasta?

    I am so sorry to hear that. It takes a LONG time to recover. My daughter has Celiac Disease, and ordered a GF sandwich at a restaurant and the server didn’t care and served her regular bread. She ended up with an intestinal infection. Ingesting gluten is very serious. While by now you have recovered, it seems there are those who just don’t get it. A little bit can make you very sick. I was hoping this could be somewhere my daughter could eat. Will have to consider carefully, as some places don’t understand the cross-contamination issue.
    Best of luck as you search for GF options.
