Consistently Good Italian Food

At the Olive Garden tonight meeting with friends. Ordered a couple of glasses of Chianti Classico and the risotto bites as a starter. Light, but packed with flavor. Ordered the Shrimp Alfredo as my entrée and was not disappointed. It was hot and shrimp were not over cooked. Just right. No... read more

We hadn't been to an Olive Garden in 10 years so we were wondering what improvements had been made. Not much it turns out. The house salad was excellent (huge portion with lots of stuff in it) and the minestrone was quite good. However both of our entrees left us unimpressed. We had Portobello mushroom stuffed ravioli and linguine with... More

When we can't decide where to go, we go to Olive Garden. Great salad and bread and the menu items are always fresh and good. Staff is almost always courteous and helpful

Have been to a few of these in the U.S., so it was a no brainer. Love the selection on the menu, always well presented and at a good price.

Ordered a lunch time duo of fettuccine and salad. As usual, salad is fresh, delicious and all you can eat. Breadsticks are the best, ever. My co worker ordered Chicken Scampi which she said was delicious. Another co worker ordered lasagna and said it tasted homemade. Our waitress was superb. I really like their new computer screen on each table.... More

I'm Italian- I'm picky- I prefer fancier places. But we're talking Olive Garden ! You get what you pay for, and it's Not Bad. Table Service is sometimes slow. Food is not like Mama made, BUT when no one feels like cooking, OR you're in a Hurry-- AND you just want some 'comfort food"--Olive Garden, Novi is a pretty darn... More

I like Olive Garden for the consistently good food. What made this one stand out was the amazing service. Our waiter, Ben, went above and beyond. Super friendly, attentive, quick. Always had full drinks. Offered suggestions, and was happy to accommodate members of our party. Made a good dinner, excellent. Highly recommended.

I hesitate to review a "chain restaurant" but this is a nicer Olive Garden than many we have been in across the country, and it deserves a separate review. We visited on a Sunday for lunch and were promptly seated in a small room with no other customers (there were plenty of other customers elsewhere). I was concerned that we... More
