We always enjoy eating here and look forward to it every chance we get when we are back in the states. The soup and salad combo is our favorite.

Our server was very good, He was very attentive and kept our soft drinks filled. The salad was good and the bread sticks were warm and fresh. We... More

Ordered lunch to go for the team, I believe chicken parm and chicken fettuccini alfredo. The chicken alfredo dish was dry, it could have used additional sauce, we actually used the alfredo dipping sauce for the breadsticks for the chicken alfredo dish. The food was hot and ready to go when we arrived, so no issue there. They supplied more... More

My mother in law had the tour of Italy which she let me try the lasagna and chicken parm. Lasagna was very good chicken was ok. My wife... More

Come to find out that it was completely INCOMPLET, I had used the order online website trusting that it was going to be easy and faster. It took two trips to Olive Garden in Brandon, on the first trip we assume... More

Just stopped by to purchase a gift card and was taken aback by the great smells. So, I decided to have a glass of wine and a sampler plater of stuffed mushrooms, cheese sticks, and broccoli. All were perfectly served and prepared to perfection. Can't wait to return…with friends!

Always a good place to visit if you are in the mood for some endless soup and salad with bread sticks. Prices the best at the lunch hours. If you leave hungry, it's your own fault. Unfortunately, parking is probably the worst thing about a visit here, however, you can park in the lots at Regency Shopping center and just... More

A very good menu. I love their soup & salad for lunch or dinner. My favorite soup is gnocchi in a white creamy soup. Love their bread sticks.
