Restaurant Week Reveal #2
Updated: Sep 28
Welcome to Day 2 of FAL’s Restaurant Week!
Do you enjoy Italian cuisine? Who doesn’t?! Pizza, pasta, the works. Olive Garden is the place to be!
Firstly, Olive Garden staff is incredibly warm and welcoming. I feel at ease when approaching them regarding my tree nut allergies. I’m thrilled to say that most of the items on their menu are safe for nut-allergic people.
However, when I want to try something new or am unsure about a particular item the staff is always willing and happy to help me.
I recall a waiter telling me how they had been debriefed to handle allergies so they knew about preventing cross-contamination, etc. His first response when I told him about my allergies was pulling out a piece of paper from his pocket listing the allergens in each menu item.
I definitely recommend Olive Garden, not only as a restaurant with delicious food, but also as one that will make you feel safe and confident in regards to your allergies.
Still unsure? Take a look for yourself! Check out their allergy menu here: http://media.olivegarden.com/en_us/pdf/allergen_guide.pdf.
And stay tuned for tomorrow’s post – Day 3 of restaurant week on FAL at 4:00 PM EST!
