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

The pasta and chicken is my favorite dish. Always perfect! Service is always good and the setting is nice.

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.

We come here specifically for the soup and salad. The Minestrone is our favorite, but there are several more choices. The salad is always fresh, with condiments you want. The Italian dressing is outstanding. We will return again as you should too.

We came here because we crave the salad/bread stick and pasta. OG is my go to place for lunch and i have taken customers here for years as of 5 years ago. This restaurant has gone down hill ever since. We were there at 5PM and promptly seated after 2 minute wait. Server did not show up for about 10... More
