Food is very tasty. I went 3 -4 times for dinner during my 1 month stay at Mankato. I generally ordered Chicken dishes. But there is no vegeterian food

We'd always enjoyed Olive Gardens and were looking forward to lunch. The service was disappointing, the food was standard fare, but nothing to have justified our anticipation. We tried a different dessert, but it was more appealing in the photos than it was on the...More

Lasagna fritta as an appetizer was very good. Main entrees were delicious. Steak Gorgonzola is always a go-to. Tour of Italy had a little something for everyone. And the missing match Unlimited most delicious as well. The lemon cake for dessert was just what you...More

Olive Garden never fails me. Unlimited breadsticks, unlimited salad. Always great. I got the fettuccine Alfredo. Some of the noodles weren't fully cooked but other then that it was delicious.

The food is extremely good however way too salty. The price is too high, on it's just noodles and sauce! The salad is very good I just wish they had more of a selection of the salad dressing. But I have grown to like it.

I think Olive Garden has went down hill. Flavor of food was bland. The food came fast but was not hot, Luke warm at best. Usually the food is good,maybe it was an off night.

The staff was great, but I just wasn't very impressed with the food. I ordered the cheese ravioli and it was just kind of bland. Just not a whole lot of taste to it. My son ordered pizza and he didn't like it. I tried...More

This Olive Garden is very similar to all of the restaurants in the chain. Food was consistent to what's we've had at other Olive Gardens. Prices have gone up. Most entrees were $15 or more.
