Wonderful end if the day surprise!

We got there just as they were closing and they welcomed us in anyway! We had been traveling all day so being welcomed and served by such friendly staff was an awesome treat! The food was very good too! The only problem I had was with another table that was there. We were seated next to a loud... read more

I'm staying in the area for business (I'm a writer, if you must know!) and this restaurant was close to the hotel so we took a chance. I'm glad I did. The flaming cheese appetizer was delicious as was the lasagna, manicotti and fetticcine alfredo. The waitress was bubbly but not in an obnoxious way, and she joked around with... More

This restaurant is at the Thornton Rd exit off I-20. MY service was outstanding and my food was good. I ordered the sampler that had fettuccine, lasagna and tortellini. Lasagna and Tortellini were very good the fettuccine,was very average. The chopped Greek salad was pretty good but I do prefer leaf salads. Bottom-line this is a good value for the... More

Avoid the marinara sauce but other than that it is great food. The marinara sauce is way too sweet. The meals are well prepared and presented. Service can be a little iffy depending on your waiter. A family of four came in after we did and received their drinks, salads and meal be fore the two of us did. During... More

I ordered the lasagna with cesar salad, mozzarella sticks, and 2 rolls. The salad was a house salad with cesar dressing, not a regular cesar. The lasagna wad very good, personally I wish it was a little bit thicker but overall was very pleased. Cheese sticks tasted like it was from the grocery store and not fresh made. Overall it... More

The wait staff was outstanding. I know food matters, but the hostess and waitress set the tone for our lunch. Yes, go with the house dressing. It is great, and they sell it for a reason! My party had everything from gyros to crab cakes to grilled fish. Everyone was happy and very pleased with the quality and quantity of... More

This place looks un-impressive from the outside, but don't judge a book by it's cover. Service was prompt and courteous, the menu is extremely varied with something for everyone. Food was served quickly and it was very good. From large salads, to baked spaghetti, to gyros, to shrimp skewers over grilled vegetables this was a great business lunch. Would definitely... More

The Olive Tree Greek and Italian Restaurant is an oasis in the food desert stretch of Lithia Springs. Among rows reanimated flash-frozen foods and chain restaurants, lays the Olive Tree Greek and Italian Restaurant. They offer friendly service and delicious made-from-scratch favorites from Lasagna, Chicken Parmesan and Souvlaki. Almost every main entree comes with a salad and the much raved... More

This is a favorite destination for my business colleagues in Lithia Springs and I've eaten here on several occasions. The service is always prompt, the restaurant is always busy, the quality is good and prices are reasonable. I ordered eggplant parmesan along with my colleague and we had an enjoyable meal. It's nice to have a locally owned restaurant option... More
