Cannot go wrong with the Olive Garden. Always a great place to relax and have some great food. We had ten in our party and we never had any problems with service. The servers were great and we had a wonderful time.

I met some friends in Florence for lunch not long ago. We arrived from different directions about 3 1/2 hours away. I was impressed with the way the hostess knew exactly who I was looking for when I arrived and showed me where my friends were. The service was outstanding from start to finish. We didn't feel rushed. The food... More

Wow! My husband and I went here for lunch yesterday and we were so impressed we took our son for dinner last night. We had a professional pleasant waitress savannah at lunchtime and then Victoria in the evening. Both of which were wonderful. Not too invasive and yet knowledgable and available. If we were here another night no doubt we... More

Our Waiter was fantastic, there right when you needed him. Very courteous and friendly and helpful. But, alas, the food was terrible. I ordered the Tour of Italy and it was yucky (to... More

Olive Garden normally does a great job. But here? No way... A bartender that looked us in the eye maybe 10 times before even asking us if we wanted a drink, ignored our requests for a refill. Then when we got our table was available, our server was every bit as aloof! Asking for a napkin to wipe up the... More

It was what you would expect from an Olive Garden the only thing that sets Olive gardens apart is the chef and the waiters. And the food part was everything I could ask for but the service was way below average especially for the level of restaurant Olive Garden is.

This particular restaurant is very dependable in terms of food quality and service. Always friendly servers, generally fairly fast. This time they gave our poor server three new tables at once... so started a bit slow, but that wasn't his fault - it was the hostess' fault! Very friendly and helpful once he was able to get to us.
