During our vacation in Orlando, it was a MUST that we eat out at an Olive Garden! My kids totally enjoy OG's Baked Ziti dish, in all its cheese-covered glory!! I must admit that going out for pasta isn't at the top of my list, but Olive Garden does a fine job. My favorite item on their menu is the... More

This is one of the best Olive Gardens I have been. The service is great and the staff knows how to treat customers. This might be your best stop in the area.

The food and service were okay, the only reason I am not giving 5 stars is for one huge flaw: before eating I went to the bathroom and it was a real mess. The bathroom was not clean, paper towels everywhere. Unforgivable for a restaurant bathroom.

Excellent food and service. We ate here twice on our 10 day trip.They are always busy and it seems like they keep watching to keep you moving along to clear your table for the next guests, but we understand it's a busy place. At least they did it with a smile!

The food here in the Olive Garden on International drive in Orlando was very good, but I have had better. The atmosphere is quite and relaxed, But wasn't too impressed. I used my debit card, and I didn't have to use my pin code. That bothered me, but it seems there are a few places in the States where this... More

I have been trying for three years to get my GF to go to an Olive Garden at home in New York State, but I've never succeeded until now. We were visiting in Orlando and just down the road from our hotel was an Olive Garden. I suggested it again and she accepted this time. We sat at the bar... More

We had a lovely lunch here. There were some lovely options on the menu and we really enjoyed our selections. Both our entrees came with soup. We had a dense, vegetable-filled minestrone and a creamy, melt-in-your-mouth chicken with gnocchi. Our entrees were the garlic rosemary chicken and grilled chicken on alfredo linguine, tossed with butternut squash. Both delicious. I liked... More
