Restaurant was pretty good. We had the combination soup and pasta. Which was good but the raspberry lemonade drink was horrible it tasted like they forgot the raspberry lemonade and just put water and ice. Our waitress was cool she suggested we try the peach tea which was good. Oh and the sangria was ok. Overall pretty good for a... More

While staying overnight in the area we opted to go to Olive Garden because of its reliable quality. We were not disappointed. The 3 of us were seated promptly and greeted quickly by our server. Always enjoy the breadsticks. And can't go wrong with their salad. Usually take most of entree home after filling up with Pasta e Fagioli soup... More

My wife and I went to the Olive Garden in Dover, and for the second consecutive and LAST time, we had horrible dinners. On the first of these two trips, I ordered chicken parmesan. When it came, the chicken was absolutely burnt. I don't mean slightly overcooked. It was burnt black. I told the waitress. She ordered a second one.... More

My Wife Started with the salad ,in our opinion they have the best salads period, next she... More

This restaurant is typical of a USA "Chain Restaurant". On this occasion it was on an Italian theme. Food was good but not great. Value was good but not great. Service was good but not great. Menu was good but not great. Nothing to shout about but then nothing to complain about. I would eat there again but don’t imagine... More

Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. I was with my aged father and step-mother, who were challenging at times, but our waitress accommodated them beautifully. The food was great and the breadsticks plentiful. Great dinner!
