Restaurant Review: Carrabba's Italian Grill

One of my favorite places to eat is Carrabba's Italian Grill. The quality of their food and service is always great. Although I try to navigate restaurants that do not have a specific gluten free menu sometimes, I would much rather choose my options from a restaurant that offers a designated gluten free menu. Carrabba's is part of the
Gluten Free Restaurant Program sponsored by the Gluten Intolerance Group on North America (GIG). It gives me confidence to know that the restaurant is having some oversight in the menu and in the materials for training employees.

Carrabba's offers a nice variety of chicken, steak and fish dishes. Their garlic mashed potatoes are gluten free and delicious. The gluten free menu offers suggested tips for ordering such as "ask that your salad be made in a clean bowl with no croutons" and "ask for no grill base" when ordering. You can take a look at their gluten free menu here.

The portions at Carrabba's are generous, we often share a meal like their Chicken Bryan with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and order an extra side salad. I have also used their take out to help cater a small dinner party.
