Highly recommended if you love Italian food

We drove from Dublin to have an Italian lunch upon recommendation of some local friends. The food was awesome, including the breads. We especially liked their version of Minestrone as well as Chicken & Gnocchi soups. Eggplant Parmigiana was another winner. The service was impeccable. Highly... read more

Great for lunch. Food is good and you don't leave unhappy. Just very full. If you only want soup & salad this is the place to go and affordable

It is completely hit or miss if you get a good server. I have had a couple great servers, and upon return never saw them again. I have been there more than a couple times where we were sat in a section right before a server went on break, and NO ONE ever came to get us drinks or take... More

First, this is one of the only Italian restaurants left in Fremont, so we really wanted it to be good. Been there a few times now (second and third time hoping the first was a bad night) and probably won't go back. The service was really good, but the breadsticks shouldn't be the most memorable part of the meal. The... More

Vegetarians can eat here! My cheese ravioli and salad were enough for two meals. Serving staff were really great!

We live close-by, so I eat at Olive Garden in Fremont quite a bit. It's recently turned into a more quick place to eat. I like the spaghetti with meat sauce the best. I've gone with other people who like other items from the menu. I'll stick with the spaghetti dish, thank you. I recommend that you eat at the... More

Just your average trip to Olive Garden. I was staying at the Best Western next to the location and needed a quick bite to eat. I choose to eat at the bar and had good service from the bartender. Food was hot and hit the spot for what it was.
