Everyone involved with our meal were great. From the hostess at the door to our waitress.

Great food for the price, of course you could spend a little by going a new Italian restaurant that is just as good but far more expensive, in a nearby town.

I know the OG gets mixed reviews, but it's always been a family favorite of ours. My husband and I ordered fried calamari to split with friends and chicken fettuccini Alfredo for our entree. He had a flavored tea and I had water. We also enjoyed the little mini desserts afterward. The limoncello was delicious! all of the food we've... More

I haven't been here for a long while, so I decided to try it one more time. I arrived at the restaurant around 3 pm so there was no one waiting. I was told there would be a 15 minute wait. The wait was actually 5 minutes. The server came promptly, and she gave me the menu. I already knew... More

My husband and I went to Olive Garden for an anniversary dinner (convenient since we were going to a nearby theater for movie afterwards). We were promptly seated and then completely ignored. The couple that were seated about 5 minutes after us were waited on and received their drinks immediately. I requested that a waiter passing by to get our... More

Lunchtime is the best time to go. Great soup and salad specials. Their breadsticks do rate as excellent. I did find my favorite wine, that was suggested by our waitress. Always friendly greetings when arriving and from the wait staff. Many times the chicken has been overcooked/dry.

Upon arrival in mid-afternoon, we were greeted by an extremely friendly host. Even for mid-afternoon, the restaurant was quite busy. The waitress was truly exceptional. She filled our drink glasses without having to be asked and provided extra bread sticks and salad. The meal itself was very good as always. What made this restaurant stand-out however was the service, and... More

Our favorite Italian place in Copperas Cove was closed on Mondays and since we were in the area we tried this Olive Garden. What a mistake. We waited about 20 minutes to be seated, which was okay (I've been told people wait up to an hour). After seating, I unwrapped my silver ware and the forks looks like they had... More

Olive Garden is my favorite, that is all. I've never had bad service, or poor food. Italian is one of my favorite cuisines, and Olive Garden is the place to get it.
