We have tried this Olive Garden multiple times, and are continuously disappointed! We ordered salad this time and it came with no dressing. Food was served luke warm, and had to ask for refills and silverware. Just cant recommend

The Olive Garden is a Place for the sudden Pasta Experience: This was a good Occassion to Have Italian Cuisine: The Service was great and the atmosphere was delightful: The Pasta was fresh and Authentic as is common at Olive Garden: The Complimentary wine was a bit Sour: Maybe it's because I am not a Wine Drinker: Wholesome Experience!

Our latest trip to Olive Garden found us ordering soup and salad which is usually a safe bet and the most affordable item on the menu. This time the soup was so watered down that there was no Chicken and no Grocchi to be found anywhere in two bowls for either of us. Add to that the waiter was overextended... More

Love the endless salad and breadsticks. Could eat here everyday if only for that. Did the Tour of Italy this time and it was great. Had the tortellini, brazed beef & tortillino, and the fettuccine. De-lish and I left stuffed.

Husband and I went walked over to dinner from our hotel. Loved the convenience, but my happiness stopped there. We were sat right next to the kitchen where the waiters/waitresses socialized.

We had a short wait when we got there at dinner time on a Saturday so no compaint there. Service was okay but not great. There were 3 of us dining and none of us were really pleased with the pricing. Soup and salad for $11.99 is a little high especially since the salad didn't have enough dressing on it.... More

Olive Garden has an extensive Italian menu typical of chain restaurants. Food is good. Sometimes a long wait time to be seated. Convenient to shopping areas. Springfield has some local authentic Italian restaurants in same area that I would choose over Olive Garden.
