Olive Garden is a popular restaurant in Redding in a busy shopping area. It has a lot of variety on its menu and features new items on a regular basis. The portions are large and can be taken home for another meal. The bruschetta is very good accompanied by a seafood pasta or meat dish. Non-alcoholic drink refills are free.... More

This particular Olive Garden in Redding is excellent. Went in as a tour group and they were very organized and got everything going in a very timely manner. The servers were great, and my meal, (Talapia) was excellent. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their meal also.

We visited for lunch on a Thursday afternoon. Our waitress, Amanda, started by greeting us warmly, asking us what brought us to the restaurant today, and making some small talk before taking our drink order. She also offered us a free wine sampling - up to three 1-oz pours off their wine menu, presumably to get us to order wine,... More

A lot of food - all carbs. Filling, but very poor quality. Not worth the prices. Good atmosphere inside and very polite, friendly service. Gluten free dish was very unsatisfactory. Don't recommend.
