I have been to several locations. They are all the same. The salad bowl is great. Unlimited quantity available. Average Italian food but good.

Our party of six arrived at 9:00 PM. The restaurant closes at 10:00 PM. We experienced professional and courteous service in spite of the looming closing time. Kudos to the staff working the closing shift on 26 December 2026!

Your usual Olive Garden. Nothing outstanding. Service was ok. Food okay. Rest rooms need more attention.

Wanted Italian/pasta before Half Marathon the next day, but should have tried a local non-chain restaurant (Roberto Italiano I found later to be excellent) or driven into Richmond for something special. Not bad, just busy, noisy, harried wait staff, long wait for check. Free salad was tastier than the ravioli or pasta primavera.

This restaurant has taken a turn for the worse since my last visit. Every table now has one of those ugly and filthy Ziosk terminals. Not only that, but the waitress will not accept payments and I was forced to use the stupid thing. I give an automatic one point penalty to every Ziosk equipped restaurant now.

Dinner was ok. I ordered the carbonara dish which could have been seasoned better. It was a bit tasteless. I've had this dish before in Norfolk VA and it was much better at that location. The bright point of the visit was the waitress Lauren. She was super nice, friendly, and accommodating. No I didn't mention my disappointment with the... More
