We like to go to Olive Garden when we want to eat a good pasta dish. It is always so tasty and the price is not so bad.

Have eaten at this Olive Garden on many occasions and the food is well prepared and the service is great. They are especially nice to my grand daughter and make her feel special. New menu is quite good.
