Having a group of 14 that wanted to enjoy a Sunday lunch together, it was surprisingly difficult to find a restaurant open for lunch on Sunday that would take reservations; walking in to a restaurant as a large group would most likely result in a long wait. Fortunately, we found that this Olive Garden, actually located in Fairlawn on Medina... More

This is my favorite place to have some really good Italian food. I always enjoy to order the angels hair pasta with shrimps and one of their good wine selection.

From the endless salad bowl and bread sticks, to either the spaghetti, pizzas, Italian chicken dishes and much more - the dinners and lunches arrive hot and wonderful. All dishes have been spiced and cooked so that the flavoring is pleasant for all. A full bar is available.

I took my softball team and their families (30 in all) after a softball tournament to this Olive Garden location, and the staff and managers were excellent! I called ahead a few days in advance and spoke to the restaurant manager who was absolutely wonderful!! She was so helpful and was kind enough to ensure that a section would be... More

Our family group of 10 was seated promptly with our call ahead table ready for a dinner at 5 pm on Friday. Beverage orders were taken and filled. Food was ordered and hot breadsticks and salads and soups served. Salads and soups were thoroughly liked. Pasta dishes arrived piping hot. The dishes were all properly prepared and fully eaten.

The service was responsive and courteous. The shrimp Alfredo Fettuccine was a disssapointment. Hard to believe the combination of flavors could have less taste than the individual components alone.

The Service on July 25 had was one of the worse dinner service i ever experience. When we walked into the establishment the hostess never greeted us, smiled or anything to make us feel welcome it was like they were all mad and did not care about the Guest. The female manager that seated us never smiled. The hostess Jacob... More

This is by far the worst Italian chain restaurant. On their commercial they claim they send their chief to Italy to train... well it certainly doesn't taste like it. The taste and the quality of meal is mediocre at best. And how can an Italian restaurant over cook pasta? I thought that only happens in Cafeteria. Cooking Pasta really is... More
