First, let's say that this is American Italian, but with perks. Absolutely love the unlimited breadsticks, salad or soup. Second, always had good service, at least my experience. Finally, what a menu! I can never make my mind up on what I want to eat. I recommend the Citrus infused chicken. Buono appetito!

The service was great. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and very cheerful.. Great food, great variety and served warm and in a timely manner. There is a lot of parking surrounding the restaurant.

Waited quite awhile at our table for a server. Someone finally figured out we had been missed and the manager came by and apologized profusely. He comped one of our selections and gave us a lunch price on my wife's soup, salad and breadsticks. The server he assigned to us (Jessica S.) went overboard to give us great service. One... More

Great service and food beyond expectations. Don't miss the opportunity if you are in the area. Right off the freeway in the southend of Tacoma. Caters to the military and its families. Wonderful food, great variety and served warm and scrumptious! Service was excellent, no waiting for anything. When you take home part of your meal you need to ask... More

we always eat here our first night out. We know we can count on the food being good and the little desert shooters are perfect

I have not eaten here in several years...so I really could taste and see the changes...portions smaller...which is fine with me...ingredients cheaper, and food taste adequate but not over the top...as the prices really went up.

We got there before the lunch time rush and service was great. Had Some moscato and it was superb. I had ordered the cheese ravioli and it was delicious as well. I couldn't finish it because I filled up on their delicious breadsticks. I do recommend Alfredo dipping sauce with their breadsticks.

During a business trip stopped information dinner a couple days. Since I was alone, I ate at the bar. Great wait staff and food was consistent with Olive Garden standards. I'd return if in the area.

Unlimited bread sticks. Yuk. And the salad, unlimited to. Just try and finally get pepper to put on this and then you also get some flavor. This is definitely the American dream of Industrial stuffs, and then let's make that unlimited salad and make it unlimited breadsticks and they will come. Beware, Italy is not far behind in knowing that... More

Some people do not like Olive Garden but I'm not one of them. This one is on a par with others I've eaten at over the years. You get a good meal, well prepared, good flavor and in a clean, noisy area. The server was very attentive and checked back several times.
