Lunch time is the best time to visit the O.G. Prices can be high, depending on what you order. The Tour of Italy can be shared among 2 people (especially 1 adult and 1 child). The Chicken and Gnocchi soup is my favorite. It comes unlimited with my entree purchase. Can't go wrong!

We got there late and the hostess tried to talk us out of staying because we had a party of 8, the place was empty and she said it would be a 30 minute wait

We travelled and were hungry. This was the place to go! Lots of options and a plateful of food. We are gluten free and even with that restriction, there were lots of choices. Close to Sight and Sound theatre and outlet shopping. Check out Fulton Steamboat across the road for your overnight stay. We did and it was fantastic.

Decided to have a sit down lunch. The service was quick and the soup and salad for lunch filled me up. Didn't get much work done the rest of the day. I will definitely be back on a slow day at work.

My friends & I went to see a show at the American Music theatre. It is not a dinner theatre so we went to Olive garden . It is not far from the theatre. The prices are very reasonable,,the food was delicious & the service was excellent.

Perhaps it was the friendliness and attentiveness of the server but we all enjoyed our meal at this Olive Garden. I usually order Spaghetti with meat balls but I choose Shrimp Mezzaluna. When I look at the portion I thought it would not be enough food but it was. However the meal was delicious. I certainly would order it again.... More

I ate at Olive Garden in Houston, Texas and fell in love. Now I'm please there are two of them in the Lancaster area. I prefer the comfort seating of the west end (Park City) Olive Garden, but the ambience in the newer restaurant at Rockvale Square (east end) makes up for it (just more crowded seating). Otherwise, the salad's... More

The Olive Garden restaurant is great whatever city you're in! You can't beat the soup and salad combo. Their soups are great and we love the salads too. WHile we don't usually order off the entree menu anymore-those choices are usually excellent also.

Great food and atmosphere. We went around 3pm, no lines, seated immediately. When leaving (about an hour later), people were waiting in line outside.
