I've been to this Olive Garden several times and it's always good. Even though it was Christmas Eve, our served Damian was very nice and welcoming. Our meals were great, too.

Wife, daughter, and I ate here while Christmas shopping. Waitress took our order, brought our drinks, then disappeared. Some one else served our meal and refilled our drinks but we had yet to see our original waitress close enough to request additional sauce for my spaghetti and additional bread sticks or drinks. Finally after every one was almost finished we... More

The last time my wife and I were at your restarant we had a terrible time with service ( over 2years ago) today was the exact opposite, as a retired restaurant owner I expect to see the waitress at least 4 times Amy had to be at our table at least 8 times, the floor manager was by, as well...

We always try and visit Olive Garden when we visit the USA. We have visited quite a number in various states & they are always excellent. This one is no different. Excellent food and service.

Normally, Olive Garden is not my choice to eat at as I'm totally put off with waiting for several minutes to be seated. My impression is they want you to feel it's so good, there's always a waiting line. Nothing in Altoona is worth waiting for a table, but that's my opinion. Now on this occasion I was shocked that...

My husband took me to Olive Garden, Altoona, for my birthday dinner this Saturday. We began with apps of zucchini and stuffed mushrooms. The mushrooms were good, the zucchini consisted of 5 tiny rounds of fried zucchini, very poor value for the money. The bruschetta was good as well, as was the gnocchi soup. Our pasta entrees hardly had any... More

I've been here many times and don't think I've ever had a bad meal here. The service is always good once you get seated (the wait can sometimes be ridiculous). I wish they took reservations or call ahead seating. They have excellent ranch dressing for their salads and the breadsticks are awesome. I usually get the lunch portion pasta when... More

The berry sangria was quite refreshing and had plenty of fruit. The waitress was attentive and offered suggestions. My husband enjoyed the lasagna; while I enjoyed the tri-colored pasta with Alfredo sauce. The teramasu (spelling) was delicious...even if I am experiencing a senior moment on how to spell the name of that dessert!

Wonderful food and great service. The server even let my wife sample two white wines before she made a decision. Olive Garden prices and food quality is excellent. If anything the service was too fast. We were still on the salad and appetizers when our main course arrived.
