“Great salad bowl to share”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We visit often, love the salad and the pasta oops did I forget the bread sticks and well priced wine? Try not to go when they have a coupon special .....just to much clammer and noise from large groups

“Good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Olive Garden is not my first choice for Italian food in the area but it is decent food. The service has always been good and it's reasonably priced.

“What Happened?????”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

We have been here in he past but the pasta sauce made Ragu look like a reaaly good dinner. the meatballs were good.
The mixed grill steak was order medium but the knife did not want to cut the steak dry and left uneaten.
Not ever going back over price and under quality BYE

“Better Italian Places”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

The food is always good here, but really....there are much better Italian restaurants in the Chicago area (around Arlington Heights, go to Armand's, Francesca's, Joe & Guiseppe).

“Great Food - Long Wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

Is the Wait worth the food? Is the food worth the wait? yes and yes. We went on a Friday night and so did everyone else in the NW suburbs of Chicago. The wait was about an hour - but after we were seated - it was a normal sequence. Food is great and worth the wait. Wait at the bar and have a couple of drinks and wind down from the week
