We go here for Birthdays and special occasions and we have never been disappointed. Their potato soup is best part of the meal and their grilled Italian sausage is perfect.

On a recent business trip, we stopped by Olive Garden for dinner. I ordered Ravioli di Portobello. Delicious sauce, great tasting soup, and good salad. Overall a good filling dinner.
