Not as gluten-friendly as they advertise.

After seeing tv commercials saying Olive Garden has gf pasta, we decided to try it. They have 4 items on the gf menu. You can only have marinara sauce which I do not care for. Even their mashed potatoes are not gluten-free. Very disappointed. Will not return.

My husband and I have been travelling to Boardman for many years to shop and have dinner at the various restaurants. The Olive Garden has always been one of our favorite stops on these trips. However, our trip yesterday probably will be our last. The chain has been making many so-called improvements and changes over the last year or so,... More

We used to live in the Boardman Ohio area. When visiting family we sometimes stop in. We love the wedding soup, not offered in our new area. The soup is still good but sad to say the service has just gone down hill. Last year while visiting our waiter was rude. But we excused it, reasoning that he must have... More

In Youngstown Ohio we have some of the best Italian Restaurants available. Many are locally owned and I do believe in giving my dollars to our local economy by going to these establishments BUT my out of town Florida guests insisted on Olive Garden... blaaa. We ended up taking our meals to go and had cold bread sticks, wilted lettuce... More

I love Italian food and this is the place to go. LOVE the bread stick and salad. The waiters are great and they meet your every need. Hope I get gift certificates for Christmas so I could go again.

I've been to this Olive Garden location twice this summer (June and Sept) and both were very good experiences. Once the restaurant was very busy & we had a party of 6 people. The other time was just 2 of us and the place was quieter. Both times everyone enjoyed their food and the waiter was very prompt in bringing... More

Been here twice and was not overly impressed. They seem to push bar seating for parties of one or two by telling you there is a wait unless you sit at bar. Waiter at lunch visit was very forgetful and my soup was oversalted badly. Tried the salmon for dinner and it had that frozen fishy taste. Guess I need... More

Always a good choice. Old standby for great soup salad pasta. Great deal. Love it. Calamari, coffee, fettucini Alfredo never disappoint!

I love going to Olive Garden on a date! My hubby and I often pick Olive Garden because it is really good food, but you can still get a nice meal for around $25 to $30! And the service at this Olive Garden has always been great!
