. For the most part i do like their food, but in comparison to other Italian Restaurants or chain like Carrabbas i'd prefer the latter.

Third time to this restaurant and the story is the same. Poor service (we frequent OG's often and had to help our server). Were told it would be a 45-55 minute wait. I waited but when I needed to go to the bathroom I noticed several tables were empty. When i returned and alerted the hostess to this, she said... More

I've eaten at Olive Garden many times. I always order the salad and soup combo. Very reasonably priced and consistently decent.

Tucked away on chestnut street, the atmosphere is inviting. The bread is wonderful. Also wide pasta variety & quite good. A mid- day glass of wine is sometimes welcome. Staff friendly & helpful.

The food was great. I really enjoyed the salad and breadsticks. I also enjoyed my dumpling soup. the tour of Italy was also good. The restaurant was very dark and depressing. i could not see any light from outside. the waiters were nice but it seemed like a forced niceness

I was visiting philadelphia when I tried this good restaurant. They offer delicious food such as fried calamari rings, mozzarella sticks, and different amazing pastas such as past alfredo with schrimps and many other kinds. Besides, they do offer great dessert like chocolate mousse, pumpkin cheese cake.... I love this place!!!

The server was on top form, polite, efficient and happy. Service excellent. Extensive menu and portion sizes matched our expectations- not to big nor to small ! Prices very reasonable. Would advise patrons to go early in the evening since it does get busy.

The person serving our table was very helpful and explained the content of food considering our special diet. The food was delicious and the portion of food was more than enough for us.
