Viva Italia, always good food!

This restaurant always does the trick for us. Not for the romantic experience, as it gets extremely busy and sometimes a bit loud. Also be prepared to wait especially on weekends, I recommend sitting at the bar while you do. The chicken scampi is fantatstic, so is everything on the menu... read more

We were tired. Olive Garden was across the street from our motel, but in fact we've eaten here several times before, especially when our kids (now adults) were with us. We received a warm welcome and a table instantly. Friendly efficient service from a server who just wanted to do a good job (which she did), not be our new... More

After a long day on the road and being tired we headed to one of our favorites Olive Garden, our Server Alex D. was excellent and after a long day his service made us relax, great job.

The olive garden location in Bellingham is great. Very friendly wait staff. Great deals. Good portions. Unlimited salad and bread sticks with meals. It's a usual haunt for us when we are across the border.

I ate here not long ago, and had a reasonable meal, however, it is apparent to me that this restaurant is slipping fast. I was very surprised to find it looked dirty, and up entering, I thought I would have to leave because it smelled very musty. Like they had a flood or major leak and the carpet was molding.... More

While the service and ambiance is good this place has really gone down. The Lasagna should have been sent back to the kitchen and we were not asked if we wanted more salad nor were we given the soup option - this place used to offer bottomless salads or soups. Has this changed?

We dined here while traveling from Oregon to Canada, staying at a nearby hotel. It was refreshing to be out of the car and away from a hotel, in an atmosphere that was predictable, in a good way. The wait staff was outstanding. The food typical fare. One meal size was way, way too big. It felt like a waste... More

Consistent service and menus - unlimited salad remains a treat; tried the new lemon honey infused chicken - tender and tasty!

Arrived around 7:00. We were promptly greeted and had less than a 5 minute wait to get to our table. Service was very good during our meal. All parties said their selections tasted very good. Large premises sectioned off into smaller serving/seating areas.
