On our way back home from Wells Maine, we always stop in Newington NH at the Olive Garden for a late lunch. As usual on this past weekend coming back from Maine we stopped as we stuck to our usual rountine. We have never had a bad dining experience. The food is good, the atmosphere at this Olive Garden is... More

We went to the Olive Garden Sunday afternoon. We were checking the menu and decided to order the steak dinners. The waitress asked us if we were interested in the steak dinner on the 2 dinners for $25 menu. We said sure, but didn't notice the fine print. Add $9 per person for the steak dinners. The food was very... More

After a shopping trip with my elderly mother, we headed to Olive Garden, which is her favorite restaurant. Growing up, Italian food was considered "foreign food" by my father, who was a strict meat-and-potatoes Yankee. Unfortunately, the rest of us loved lasagna, spaghetti and ravioli, which we were only allowed from the can at lunchtime when pops wasn't around! Fast... More

We loved the food--delicious, but the portion sizes are very small--very little seafood and very little pasta!! The waitress, Maggie was one of the best we've ever had in every way--it would be nice if all were like her!!!

Always reliable. Good, honest food, courteous staff, quaint ambiance; overall, always a nice dining experience. We can count on our classics such as chicken parm, scrumptious sauces, the delicious salad, hot breadsticks, etc. A consistent and pleasant experience.

The food was good with the exception of the famous unlimited bread sticks which were so crusted with salt that they were inedible. They lost our order then claimed they ran out of sauce. I think that they were trying to make up for the delay by being attentive but it was waaaaay too much. I almost felt like asking... More

We enjoy the background music, Italian atmosphere, and menu variety at the Olive Garden, in Newington! For lunch, this hot July afternoon, this was the break my husband and I needed--away from August's upcoming wedding shopping. So many delicious choices, specials, and combos! My husband chose a wonderful shrimp/antipasto salad and minestrone soup; I, the individualized pizza with cheeses, spinach,... More
