Stopped by for dinner on the way through Sac. Had possible the best waiter I have ever been served by. If Steve is working as a waiter when you are there, ask for him.

Mom and I had their $6.99 lunch special which included soup or salad and breadsticks. It was very tasty and just the right portion for me while my mom had some left-over. Our server, Natalie, was very attentive. The wait time, during lunch on this particular Thursday was minimal. After many years, we are still happy to patronize this restaurant.... More

This is definitely my favorite Italian restaurant. The portions are great as well as the soup/sald and break sticks. We went during the buy and take one special and it was over the top. The tast of many items is always spot-on.

Don't be thirsty when you go here they never come back to refill your drinks... was a busy lunch but doesn't excuse them not coming back. When grabbed any waitress to just ask for a box and she said 'ok' and never came back....... so guess you have to be loud to make sure you have a returning waitress/waiter if... More

That's what we always order when we eat at Olive Garden.... Soup, Salad & Breadsticks just $7.95/lunch. It'll cost you more on the dinner menu. You just can't go wrong eating here.

We ate here with a party of four and found the food to be very average, kind of bland, but filling. The pasta was a bit on the dry side and lacking in flavor and our salads were fairly good. Service was enthusiastic and our server was just fine but she had nothing to do with the product from the... More
