Very Good, not great as was typical

The Garlic rosemary chicken and smoked mozzarella fonduta were absolutely great. Tried the stuffed meatballs, and they were good but tasted better with some of the smoked mozzarella added. What was disappointing were the breadsticks which had barely any garlic in the butter brushed on top... read more

If you are in the mood for pasta, Olive Garden would not disappoint. This restaurant is a popular neighborhood favorite so expect a long wait to be served especially during dinner time. My favorite is the salad and warm bread. As far as pasta goes, there is not a lot that can go wrong. Try the "Tour of Italy" which... More

If you like Pasta, this is the place to go. I am so in love with their salad and bread. I can eat that and nothing else. Nice family place to go.

I'll preface this review by saying that I actually really like Olive Garden. I have been to a lot of Olive Gardens, and they are generally very good and consistent. However, the Olive Garden in Laurel is flat out terrible, and I'm saying this after giving it numerous chances to not be terrible. The service is slow and wait staff... More

I always get the tour of Italy but this time they had an option to choose which items you get in the tour of Italy which made it even nicer. The food was good as always.

My sister and I went there and then a few days later, I took my granddaughter there. Between the two visits, they had new video thingys that had trivia games you could play while you wait for your meal. They don't tell you until you get your bill that they charge for these. That bothered me, because one would guess... More

The food was average for an olive garden. It was the service that was outstanding. I wish I had noted the servers Name. I was there with my mother in-law for a quick lunch. Our server was extremely friendly. She kept our drink refilled, she made great recommendations and always had a smile. It's nice to have good service. It... More

Surprised of the lack of quality of the food. Sickening levels of salt in the pasta. The soup is without flavor. The service was good, the staff is friendly. This place really is McDonald's with a table cloth. Steer clear.
