We ate here on a late Sun evening. The restaurant was crowded and our waitress was pleasant, but seemed rushed. The grilled chicken flatbread was the best item ordered. The only complaint was it was too small. So, my spouse ate the majority of the whole wheat linguine w/ meat sauce. Good value for the price.

We've been to quite a few Olive Gardens in State, and a few out of state, and this one is our favorite, by far. The food is pretty consistent from one to another, but here we always seem to have a great time with the staff, who are very professional, efficient, knowledgeable, and personable, which makes for a nice time,...

We were anxious to have a quick meal and get back on the highway for the rest of our trip home. Restaurant was crowded and we were offered a table near a group of 30 or a table at the bar. We chose the table in the bar area. Our server picked up on the fact that we were not... More

Always good food which explains the wait on weekends. Hard to chose from the delicious soups or a salad. Meals and desserts always good.

I just love Olive Garden. Whatever you go is always the same standard, good and nice as usual. Prices really fair for the excellent pastas and wines.

I don't think I've ever visited Central Connecticut without eating at this Olive Garden! The service is always stellar-- the food servers really go out of their way to make sure we leave satisfied (and full). This trip I was taking some clients out to dinner, and I heard nothing but raves from them! I'm always happy with the wonderful... More

After the hair, I just couldn't go on with dinner. Unfortunately I was part of a group of 20 so I had to tough it out. Won't be back.

In the midst of a rush-hour snow storm, my son-in-law and I enjoyed a tranquil hour and a delicious meal at Olive Garden. Our server Effie was pleasant and efficient, letting us take our time over the menu and advising on menu favorites. We both thought the new pot pies seemed an odd offering for an Italian restaurant (why put... More

We each had the Tour of Italy with lasagna, chicken and eggplant parm. All were very good as was the soup and salad. Our server Stella was outstanding, seeing to our every need. I have never had a bad meal at an Olive Garden. Will return.
