The food is typical Olive Garden fare - gotta love those garlic breadsticks. What made the difference at this location was the customer service. My husband and I were lucky enough to get Jessina (probably spelling her name incorrectly). From the moment we sat down to when we left the restaurant she was a very attentive but not intrusive waitress.... More

We went with a party of 10 and the service was great. Fast and efficient. The food is always very good. Just wish they would add veal Parm to the menu

I live 50 miles away from Rochester and came in to see my Doctor and visit my Daughter. We went to Olive Garden and the waiter was very slow and apparently they had been busy as there were many dirty tables. In our area there were 4 tables of 2 people.Out of the 4 tables 2 different people complained about... More

We had not gone in some time and have recently started going again. We really like the buy one take one deal as that makes it affordable. Without that deal it is a little over priced for pasta. Also they should not be pushing the wine so much as many families eat there.

We went to Olive Garden to celebrate two birthdays and they brought the birthday ladies two free desserts of their choice. There was a party of eight and everyone was happy with their meal. My son was disappointed that they didn't have seafood Alfredo on the menu anymore, so they made it special for him! We had a great time

When you drive up to the restaurant, it is in a very sad area. It looks like a place where restaurants go to die. Upon walking in, the reception area smelled of cleaning fluids/bleach...not very appetizing. The wait staff was very nice. My husband ordered rigatoni and meat sauce. After waiting quite a while after finishing his soup, they finally... More

Olive Garden is always a great choice. I did the take-out today for my son and I. He had the meatballs with spaghetti and I had the original Tour of Italy and a salad. Everything was fresh and the soft bread sticks are always a treat. We will definitely come back to dine in next time.

What a pleasant surprise for lunch. I ordered the soup from the lunch menu and it was one of the best soups I have ever eaten. The combination lunch was tasty and very filling, a nice variety. Price was just a little high for lunch. Overall.... all was good.

Ate lunch here with my whole family. It was good with only one minor issue that my tour of Italy, lasagna was crispy critter ed on the bottom. Everything else was fine. The tortellini forno was the best. Service was good and the food fresh. Restrooms were well kept and the overall cleanliness of the restaurant was very good. The... More

I knew it would be bad when the waiter had no idea what beer they had on tap and admitted it. His continued apologies throughout the meal did not make up for the fact that he got orders wrong, needed continued reminders to respond to requests and handled serving poorly. The food is expectedly mediocre. Honestly we wouldn't have been... More
