My sons and I always take a weekday trip in the summer to Altoona for shopping and when they were younger, Lakemont Park. We always visit the Olive Garden for the all you can eat soup, salad, and breadsticks. What a deal! The trick is to order water as they really get you with the price of soda. I love the Zuppa Tuscana soup so much that I found a copycat recipe online. The kids like the wedding soup. We get our bellies full for a good priced lunch and then visit the Boyer factory for some "factory reject" Mallow cups (YUM), the Benzel factory for factory priced pretzels, Boscov's and the mall. A fun day!

A plate of pasta should never be more that $10. Unless you pour a little love into it. Good food, Good service. A little over rated.

We eat here about once a month and for this area, it's pretty good. Is there a little old Italian lady cooking in the kitchen? No, but it is tasty and pretty consistent when it comes to both their meals and drinks. If something comes out not quite right, management steps up and makes it right, no excuses or blaming the diner. Our favorite items include the stuffed mushrooms, 5 cheese Ziti, mixed grill, Bellini tea, and Berry sangria.

Extensive menu, unlimited salad and bread sticks like all Olive Gardens. Fish special was very good and wait staff was excellent.
