Description of Food Allergy Accommodations

This nation-wide chain doesn't offer a gluten free menu, however, according to their 'Guest Relations' Dept.: "At this time we are unable to provide a listing of our menu items that contain ingredients excluded from a gluten-free diet. Please advise your server of your dietary restrictions and ask to speak directly with a chef. Our chef will be happy to visit your table and then suggest and prepare a meal that will meet your dietary requirements."

General Description

This is a slightly upscale Italian chain that prepares meals as they are ordered.

Reviews

When you visit Maggiano's Little Italy the waiter has the chef come and talk to you about your food allergy and the chef tells you what he can prepare for you. The chefs are trained for example to prepare gluten free food. Unfortunately the writer has had two negative experiences eating at Maggiano's even though other experiences were successful. Despite the restaurant's efforts my hypothesis is that cross contamination can occur, so reader beware if you are gluten intolerant or have celiac disease. My two negative experiences were extreme and miserable. When the last experience was reported to the assistant manager he told me I must have had the flu.
