Come HUNGRY!!

I recently was in Aberdeen for business with one of my colleagues and we were told to visit this restaurant for a nice Italian dinner and Sangria. It was a great choice! The salad and breadsticks were excellent and the portions were very large. Our waitress was extremely nice and attentive.

I've been to this restaurant three times only because of convenience, however every time we're more disappointed. The service was lousy and the food was mediocre at best. I won't be going back.

We arrived at this restaurant at 5:30 on a Thursday night. We were greeted by the hostess and led to our seats. Unfortunately, in a three-quarters empty restaurant, the seats offered were among the worst in the house (right in the middle of all kitchen traffic). We requested and were led to another location and we were provided with menus.... More

I love this restaurant. This is way better than Olive Garden. I recently visited Olive Garden while on vacation and took one bite of the bread stick and said never again. My company uses all the time for holiday parties. I also have used the catering service for a personal party. The lunch menu is great and very reasonably price... More

My mouth was watering when I saw boneless ribs on the menu together with coconut shrimp and chicken alfredo. Unfortunately the ribs were dry and tasleless unlike the seasoned, tender meat I had envisioned and the chicken was dry and served with thick starchy fettuccine. Not a dish I would order again and not a restaurant I would seek out.

We needed to eat somewhere since we got in the night of Easter for work and the front desk at our hotel said Olive Tree was the only place open. We stopped at a few other places to be sure, but that was the only place open on Easter night. It was not very busy, so we just went to... More

This restaurant was wonderful. The salad and breadsticks were so good ( even better than Olive Garden). I ordered the stuffed shells, my daughter ordered chicken parmesan and my mom ordered Alfredo. they were all delicious and HUGE portions. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. The only thing that I don't like is that there is not one near... More
