Enjoyed it!

After 3 meals, I have to say I really don't know how they could improve! The service and food has been excellent and we have not had to wait... read more

The food is great but you will have to wait for a seat and food if they are busy. It is not a place for someone with an hour lunch break. The Soup and Salads are a great choice. The style inside does not look italian to me.

My main complaint is the wait. I don't understand what takes so long when they have a ton of help. When you finally get your name called and they walk you to your seat you'll probably notice a lot of empty tables and tables that just need to be cleaned off. Like I said earlier they have a ton of... More

The interior of the restaurant is beautiful. we love the new set up. Our food wasn't very good. My father in law, my eldest son and I... More

My wife and I and two friends visited the brand new Olive Garden (rebuilt after a 2013 fire) on a cool January day. I tried the Tour of Italy and the all you can eat salad with bread sticks, while my wife had the five cheese Ziti and salad. The meal was great, the ambience was new and pleasant, and... More

We ate here Christmas eve for lunch. I did have to wait in a line even though I got there just a few minutes before 11:00 a.m. but we were seated fairly quickly. The restaurant decor is very modern, clean simple lines. The food was good but our server was overwhelmed and perhaps more wait staff was needed as he... More

Food WAS good but probably tastes like ash due to the recent fire. All in all I would recommend this restaurant if it was currently standing.
