I have not been to Olive Garden for awhile since the last experience I had with GF pasta was not good as it was poorly cooked. This time I ordered a steak and chicken medallion plate with asparagus and it was awesome! Plain and simple with seasonings and no condiments needed. I brought the leftovers home for my hubby. The...

The wait staff was excellent, friendly and helpful. It was a cold and blustery night, but we were seated in a warm and comfy place. The food was great as usual, and the staff and environement were excellent.

Very much enjoyed the gluten free menu option. The Penne Rigate Pomodoro was awesome! Even my husband who does not need to be gluten free thought it was good!

We were able to have a family dinner here, and given, w/o asking a private room since our group was larger. The waiter did a fine job, and we enjoyed our visit.

Grabbed dinner to go the night before a half marathon. Ordered two items to go but when I got there to pick it up they only made the order for one. Was disappointed to have to wait to have the orders made since I wanted to get back to the hotel due to the race the next day. It was... More

There has only been one time where I was VERY unsatisfied with the service. There was a group of ladies sitting behind us and we had the same waiter as them. He was definately more concerned about getting their attention then getting me refills on my soup and salad. We sat and waited for him and he just stood there... More

I liked that I had a gift card to spend and I liked the company I was with. Otherwise, I found it to be nothing special and a poor value for the money. They are resting on their laurels and need to realise people have other options in town for Italian food such as Dino's.

We have been eating out at this restaurant for many years, and the food has always been great. However, we always order pasta and dessert. They had a wonderful chocolate strata cake, which had been my favorite dessert in town for years. However, they just discontinued it, which was disappointing. A few weeks ago, we actually ate at the restaurant,... More

Nothing special very limited menu choices for people who dont like Mushrooms or wine , the push to drink wine a little to strong there and seems if you dont order some then you suddenly get forgotten by the waitress. and your service becomes second rate but on other occasion I have dined there with friend who did order some...

my sister and I ate there last weekend and we both had the 3 course meal, for $12.95...wow!! Of course, the salad and breadsticks are always wonderful, but we both tried one of the specials, potato crusted chicken and bucatini....I could not believe how great they were..I usually always order the same thing, and now I have a new favorite....and...
