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. I don't go out to eat to hear about the workers social life. Made for a very noisy dinner with people constantly walking right next to the table. That... More

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.

I have been to this Olive Garden twice and both times I was satisfied with my meal and the service. Salad was very good and my entree filled me up. I had a seafood pasta dish that had a creamy sauce. Would definitely recommend to anyone that is a fan of Olive Garden.

After travelling several hours to be with family, we were told it would be over an hour wait but they paged us in 20 minutes on a Sat evening. They served free cheese sticks during our wait. Nobody does that, but this Olive Garden does. The service was with a smile and checked back at great intervals. The food was... More

We enjoyed the Sunday meal with friends. What made this an ideal choice to eat? Our attentive waiter who gave us great service. The chicken piccata was cooked and seasoned to perfection. I loved the side of zucchini! Very Paleo!! The family style salad hit my hunger spot and we were even offered more along with more breadsticks, too!! Thank... More
