When traveling, my wife and I tend to frequent Olive Garden restaurants because of the service and value. This Olive Garden did not disappoint. The entrees were delicious and the service was outstanding.

A reliable chain we have used in the past, but this was our first visit to an Olive Garden in several years. The service was exceptionally friendly and attentive, the food delicious and the portions extremely generous. Excellent value?

Olive Garden is a chain that is all over. It is always good. There in Dubuque I had the Ravioli di Portebello which was very good.
