Birthday lunch

I tried the new chicken sorrento, very lemony. Finished it off with a trio of mini desserts. Food was served very quickly and correctly for everyone in our party. Nice change of pace. Would visit again.

Terriffic place to eat . Fine food gracious hostess & waitresses. On a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday arrive before 6pm or you will have a long wait. They do get crowded. However if you don't mind waiting the food is well worth it.

we ate at the Olive Garden. Good Food and pleasant. Think I may have to say Mazellis Brick Oven and Pizza was better!

We went to dinner there ... I prefer angel hair and marinara.. It was watery, a sure sign of defrost from the microwave ... It's ok for lunch for soup, salad and breadsticks, but skip this place in Altoona for dinner and go to Lena's where everything is home made!

Went to this restaurant for dinner and enjoyed it very much. I was happy with the service by the lady who served out table. She was very efficient and saw that we had what we needed. The menu items were varied which gave each person in our party a large choice of dishes. Good value for the money. The salad... More

This is a restaurant we usually enjoy very much. The waitress was very kind and prompt. We had the soup, salad, and breadsticks which was a lunch special for $5.00. Can't complain about the price and it was excellent, as usual. The only negative today was the greeter/hostess. She was NOT friendly, and when we asked for a booth instead... More

We stopped in to have a drink and decided to have dinner or something to eat. Selected a couple of app's with a salad. The spicy shrimp was not too spicy. Bland or just "fried shrimp". The "endless" salad bowl had very fresh veggy's and was very good.

Have eaten there several times and have always had a great meal. Oh that fresh salad, can't get enough. Good service, fast. Good value. Parking is a bit congested but proves they are popular. Very busy at times. My longest wait was 35 minutes but well worth it. Highly recommend.

Service is usually pretty good. I don't usually find Olive Garden to be the most comfortable of restaurants. Personal note, I wish they would do away with those horrible breadsticks and offer bread. Think Carrabbas!
