Very busy for only fair quality food

It is amazing that the Olive Garden markets themselves as an authentic Italian restaurant. The food is tasty in a generic manner but there are so many little family owned Italian restaurants that are so much better. Most of there food is prepared at another location and reheated at the restaurant... read more

The northern tour of Italy was great. I got to sample some wine while I waited for lunch. The wine was better than I expected. The service was great and I didn't have to wait long to get in. My only complaint about this establishment is the fact that I can never get in. The parking lot is always packed,... More

It was very crowded thus loud and had to fight the crowd to get to the restrooms. No parking in parking lot had to wait for such. Waitress had too many large groups and tables to serve her customers appropriately. We finally got her to get a 2nd bowl of salad but didn't arrive till after our entrees were served.... More

The hostess was very friendly and attentive. The waitress seemed a bit busy for pleasantries, but took care of everything we needed. The food was absolutely cooked to perfection. My husband and I enjoyed the visit.

We had a gift certificate so we are here. The food is overpriced and overcooked. (Must remember this is a chain) My husband had the chicken Marsala. He says it was good and a bit overdone. (Must remember this is a chain) I had chicken parm. The spaghetti to chicken ratio was off. The sauce to everything ratio was off.... More

Food was fantastic! Our server was average but management was throughout the restaurant to make sure things ran smooth. We will definitely go back again.

Our waitresses Amanda and Latoya did a fantastic job!!! Very pleasant and hospitable. The greeter/sitter was terrible and acted like we were imposing on her. My wife wanted a booth and the sitter gave her a look like what???? We have 5 cheese tortini or something like that and it was very tasty. Very good portion and got to take... More
