Good Italian food, fairly reasonably priced

My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant roughly once a month for the past 30 years. The lunch menu includes soup and salad + bread sticks and all are bottomless. We usually ask for the bread sticks "extra brown" because we like them with a slightly browned, barely crispy outside. They have... read more

Olive Garden's food choices and quality is good, but since they refuse to take reservations, we've sopped going there as I refuse to wait for 1 hour or more, esp on weekends, for a table with inadequate seating in the lounge and open tables at which they don't seat patrons b/c the restaurant hasn't staffed the restaurant sufficiently for what...

We had good food and a nice, but somewhat inexperienced waiter. With time he should improve. He was very nice though. A plus.

Stopped for daughter's birthday dinner. Busy night there but seated quickly. Friendly and courteous service. Clean restrooms. Good food and servings sufficient. Bead sticks, salad and drinks replenished quickly. Will return soon.

We have been very pleased here over the years - both w/the food and service. In fact, the service has been expectional. Our experience last week was so disappointing - both my entree (their "special" - chicken butternut squash fettucine alfredo (or something like that) - and the service. The squash was very hard to eat - I know it... More

I love their egg plant dish, spaghetti with fettuccine alfredo! I am not an egg plant connoisseur, but Olive Garden cuts the egg plant thin & deep fries it with a crunchy batter.

I've been here a few times already and the food is always mediocre. Today we went for a family member's birthday. I ordered my pasta with rotini and the chef came out to personally tell me they were out of rotini. I respect that the chef came to tell me that but how can an Italian eatery be out of... More

We had to wait about thirty minutes on a Friday night. they had quoted us 45 so we felt happy to get in earlier. We got our drinks and food really fast and our waitress was very friendly. The restaurant was super busy and a little noisy, but we had great service.

Christina (I hope I spelled your name right) is AMAZING!!!! Kindest and most compassionate manager of any food establishment I've ever been to. I was just there picking up some soup, and was blown away by how kind and helpful you were. Thank you so much for your kindness. We all appreciate it very much. Love the restaurant as well,... More
