Excellent value and great taste

Ordered food for nine clients and it seems they gave me enough for 19. Pastas with Chicken and Salads were great, meatballs too good!! worth every penny.

I liked the lasagna. I came here with my folks and my son. I wish the Cesar Salad was offered free with the meal instead of the house salad.

I only like their vegetable soup and bread sticks. They only have limited dressings for their salads.

This is my second time in this location after a terrible first visit with a very grumpy server. However Now we got a great server which was very very friendly. Food as expected, the Olive Garden style and I love it. Had a combo soup plus unlimited salad and a house wine (which is good value for money).

Olive Garden is always offering some sort of special promotion and you can dine there and enjoy good food without investing a fortune. Yesterday, I had the pasta special with salad and bread sticks and I could have ordered more salad, pasta or bread sticks if I was able to eat more. Service is always good.

I have eaten here before and was not very impressed with the food then and it hasn't changed. They are very skimpy on the sauces and the food is no more than average. I have had much better Italian food in other restaurants.

The soup was good, but the others dish were not too good and quite expense for a pasta dish. The service was terrible, the waitress forgot our order, dropped juice in the cellphone in the table near for us, a very bad experience. I quite sure that i will not come back again.
