Pasta Night

By the time we ate here, we were in the mood for pasta. I had Chicken Parm and my girlfriend had shrimp pasta. Food was hot, plentiful, and our waitress was very friendly and right on our drink fills.

I went to Olive Garden for the 2 for $25 special. This is the third time in less than two years that I have gone to Olive Garden after seeing a commercial, checking the olive garden.com website and finally the Chico Olive Garden Menu and was told the special I read or heard about was not going on. This time... More

We hadn't set foot in O G in decades, but since this one was across from hotel, we decided to give it a try. The hostesses were very knowledgeable and convinced us to stay. Our food was actually good and waitress was the most professional we've had in a long time; incredibly attentive to water and bread, and everything, yet... More

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
