Maggiano's- Awesome!

Recommended Posts

I had the best experience at the Maggiano's in King of Prussia, PA. I was ordering the Shrimp Scampi '"without the linguini because I can't eat wheat'' when the waiter said, "We have gluten free pasta if you'd like" I just about fell out of my chair, because there was no mention on the menu of gluten free options. He talked to the chef, who made me a custom creation that was so tasty, and the pasta was terrific. The waiter told me ''we take allergies very seriously here''. I was so impressed by this one restaurant and how they treated me, like someone special and not a freak! Yay Maggiano's! This is the first time I've been to one, don't know if they all have gluten free pasta, but I will be writing headquarters to let them know they have won a loyal customer!

From what I can tell they all pretty much have gluten-free pasta. But sometimes they run out apparently ... so ask first. I've been to two Maggiano's in the DC area & both accommodated me. The chefs came out & we worked out what I could have. I'm vegetarian & can't have dairy, so that cuts out quite a bit. Both times the chefs came up with something new just for me.

The menu I saw last time DID mention the availability of gluten-free pasta, in small print below the listing of pastas. This was the lunch menu. My first trip to a Maggiano's was for dinner; I can't remember if I saw the mention of gluten-free pasta then or not.

We ate at Maggiano's in Denver (Pavillions) on Saturday night and had a great experience as well. We called ahead of time and made a reservation (there were only 3 of us) and told the host gluten-free. When we got there, the chef came out and took DDs order personally.

She got the corn rotini pasta w/ alfredo sauce with steak slices and broccoli. She absolutely loved it! It was her birthday yesterday and it was awesome to take her to a nice place to eat. :D

Also, when we called, they indicated they don't have gluten-free menu online, but they do have gluten-free products so if you call ahead you get super-special treatment!

I'm not sure when you went, but when I visited Maggiano's in KoP, I saw it listed on the menu. Granted it is a single line mentioning Gluten Free pasta is available, but its there.

I actually talked to the sous chef there at the time and he offered to make lasagna for me out of these little spiral corn noodles (depends on how busy they are). I also had a delicious (modified) Chicken Cacchitorie (sp).

Enquire about dessert as well! My first trip there they actually had Gluten Free cookies available! They were an orange zest chocolate chip, and rather delicious. Sometimes they have it, sometimes they don't. I definitely love going there though!

Cheers!

Just a word in favor of paranoia --

Double-check when they bring your pasta that it IS the gluten-free pasta, especially if you have anything else special about your order. My last time at Maggiano's I talked to the chef and told him I wanted gluten-free pasta. We then had a discussion about what I could have on it that would be vegetarian and dairy-free as well. What they brought to me was a vegan topping on REGULAR pasta. I realized this after eating a significant amount of it, then seeing that my husband's pasta looked like mine.

The chef HAD written down my order, but simply forgot the gluten-free part.

Better to sound paranoid than go through what I went through after that :o
