We meet two of our longest and best friends here at least every two months for lunch. We live in Carmichael, CA and they live in Magalia, CA. The food is consistently good and the service is impeccable. You will not want for anything as they check on you several times. We spend around 2 hours visiting and they do... More

I have been going to Olive Garden for years. I've had OK to poor service at this location. Chico doesn't have a lot of restaurants to choose from so this one stays busy. You will generally wait to be seated for dinner, not so much for lunch. One very bad experience with food poisoning from eating the stuffed chicken breat.... More

After moving my daughter into her apartment we went out for dinner. It was a hot day so a cold salad sounded good, until we sat a long time in the chilly restaurant waiting to order. I switched to soup. The soups were delicious but warm...not hot. It didn't take the chill off. Bread sticks are delicious and the waiter... More

This is a gold restaurant. The food there is always good. They are always busy most evenings. They have a small gluten free menu. The dish I like is the tour of Italy.

I don't expect real Italian food at Olive Garden but I normally like their food anyway. I go to their restaurants fairly often and most of the time enjoy everything from food to service. This time my lunch visit was very disappointing. I ordered a very basic dish because I was under time constraints: Spaghetti with meat sauce. The portion... More

Of course you don't go to the Olive Garden expecting authentic Italian food. But that doesn't mean that the food isn't good! On the contrary I have been to this restaurant probably over 7 times in the last 5 years and the service is always really good! The servers really, really care. They are nice people, and is some of... More

Had lunch with my family and was seated promptly. Our server was smiling, pleasant, checked on us frequently and anticipated our needs. The soups, appetizers and entrees were mostly delicious. My husband thought his soup was a tiny bit salty. One entree was just a liitle bland, nothing a little more cheese can't fix. We were seated in a quiet... More

Same menu and food quality at this Olive garden in Chico as every other Olive Garden I've ever been too. Which is to say, great soups, OK salad, nice warm breadsticks, and very good entrees. I think prices are a little high for a chain, running about $15-$19 for most entrees. But the food is consistently good.
