If you like Olive Garden, this one of their restaurants to visit. Service is good. Waitresses/Waiters are friendly and out going. Soup and Salad is superb.

It's been a while since we have eat here. The food, service, cleanliness & waitress was all good, but a little more expensive than before. Like everything else I guess.

The food was as expected. They had misordered one of the entrees, but fixed it quickly enough that the person was able to eat with the family. The restaurant was busy, but we had a reservation. They accommodated us within a few minutes of arriving. The best part of my experience was the waiters, Joseph and Dwight. They offered us... More

Probably my favorite place to eat in Temple. Food, service, and attitude of the waiters and waitresses have been superb each time I have visited the restaurant.

We like Olive Garden, especially the soup and salad choices. They are rather pricey and require purchase of larger portions than we often need. Their coupons are only good with multiple purchases or large quantities. We would be more prone to visit if there were coupons that we could use or at least offer a senior discount.

Have eaten here several times. Food is always good, but what i like best is the service. The waitstaff are always pleasant and attentive. Manager always comes by the table to make sure everything is ok. Would recommend.

I ordered food on two different days while staying in Temple. The staff was great and the food was very good. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. On one of my trips I had a friend with me. She had been there before and ordered food as well. She raved about this restaurant.

There are not a lot of choices in Temple, especially if you are just passing down the highway. This is a chain restaurant with decent Italian food and average prices. Staff has always been good. Have visited on multiple occasions.
