This is not my first time in Olive Garden restaurant chain, more or less the same standard everywhere, Florence one is also good. Portions are quite big, I have tasted papardelle pescatore, seafood ingredients were generously used. Tasty but not a real italian dish quality, no black pepper mill for example. I have checked the menu, altgough it contains enough... More

Food at the Olive Garden is certainly adequate. Service was efficient. Bread is great and the salad was very good. Specials were reasonably priced.

we stopped at the Olive Garden on the way to our hotel and were impressed. The food was very good- soup, salad and a Eggplant Parm and the Lasagna we're very good! We are Italians and while this is not fine Italian dining, the portions were large, the food was tasty, and the prices were reasonable. We don't usual dine... More

We stopped there for lunch while touring the town. It is near Memorial Park so we decided to stop and have lunch. It was quite tasty we had the all you can eat soup and salad and bread sticks. No one walked away hungry. Definitely would stop there again for lunch.

Being from Florence, one can only expect mediocrity from any given place around town. Our experience was well from the taste of our food and service. Brighton made excellent suggestions for appetizers and wine not to mention prompt service. Our dinner was as expected for the price we paid and are very happy

While the food was good, it wasn't the best service and the food came out cold. Maybe just an off night.

My wife and I stopped here as we traveled through South Carolina. We were greeted with a friendly face and seated right away. Our server was working several tables and was pretty distracted in her duties. We ordered an entre that was no longer on the menu and the server said it was no problem and even returned to the...
