this was our first visit to Olive Garden since the landmark breadsticks & wine edict, the management report which faulted the chain for serving too many breadsticks and not pushing wine sales hard enough... we had plenty of breadsticks, though, and took a couple home, and our pitched the win like a Cy Young Award winner... got some just to...

Sadly we don't have the Olive Garden in Ontario (or not that I know of anyway)...so when we're cross-boarder for the day or a get-a-way shopping weekend, Olive Garden is a MUST! This particular restaurant in Amherst is very unusual greeters...a family of ducks like to hang out at the front door. Last year there was one duck and at... More

My husband and I went here and had a quick lunch. The new menu had alot of interesting choices. I chose a new low calorie chicken dish and it was delicious. The waiter suggested their new house wine direct from Italy and it was the equivalent of the best white zinfandel that I have ever had. And of course I... More

Meals come with unlimited breadsticks and either unlimited soup or salad. The Zuppa Tuscano soup (sliced potatoes, italian sausage and kale in a thin creamy... More

Stopped in for lunch and was quite satisfied with the offering and the price was right, too. The bean soup was quite hearty and the bread sticks are addicting

The dinners have always been tasty and served hot. The dinner menu has changed over time and it seems that there are fewer choices now. During our mosr recent... More

Why does one go to a chain restaurant such as Olive Garden? Well, for me, it is the comfort of getting what I expect--every time. I have not eaten in a lot of Olive Garden locations, but I do occasionally dine in this location, which is my local branch of the chain. My wife and I go there mainly for... More
