The service was excellent this time; I went following the crowd (my family) and a gift card given for Christmas time. I am sorry their food does not impress me at all. The Calamari was smushy, the stuffed mushrooms did not have any flavor, and my salmon was dried and overcooked. To make matters worse, my apple martini was not... More

The food tastes like it was simply microwaved. Heated up fancy TV diners. I doubt the kitchen actually has things like a functional stove and a fryer. The staff was nice, I guess. Will not ever return and I advise you to stay away.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for the night and they only serve breakfast, so we went to do take-out from the Olive Garden. The food was delicious and it was a also a great value as they had a Taste of Italy special (3 entree in 1 meal).. We recommend this place if you are looking for a... More

Been to many olive gardens but this one is the worst. Slow service, food is just okay, just not impressed. Given it many tries over the years and it doesn't seem to improve. Need to focus on better wait staff.

We like Olive Garden for drinks and food. We also stop here every time on our way home. Very good. I would recommend to everyone plus they have a children menu.

This Olive Garden is so welcoming and they serve delicious food. Even if you just order their soup and fresh salad, you will walk away happy!

We stopped at the Hampton Inn while on the road and the O.G. was across the street. The food was very good and the service was even better.

The Florence Olive Garden is attractive and had a very good lunch crowd. Though somewhat slow, our server did do a pretty good job getting our order to us in reasonably ok time. The food was good, but the bread sticks were not very plentiful for the 3 of us. Of course, more were brought if we asked. However, we... More
