“Standard menu, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

We don't have an Olive Garden anymore where we live, so we had to go there, just for the breadsticks alone! The menu hasn't changed much but the food was tasty and our server was very attentive and friendly. We had a comfortable, relaxing dinner.

“Lunch Special: Soup salad and bread sticks is great.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Lunch Special: Soup salad and bread sticks is great.....

Otherwise the food is alright, nothing there seems to be all that exciting either way. THE AC IS ALWAYS TOO COLD IN MOST LOCATIONS TOO!

Good place for a family meal...

“Wonderful food , fabulous restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed in Mesa Arizona for three months this year , holidaying with our Canadian friends who snowbird for 5 months during the winter . We visited many buffets , and restaurants , but after visiting the Olive Garden , we went again and again !!
The selection on the menu is fantastic , It opens around 5 pm and immediately there are queue's lining up , but it dosnt take long and they have a fantastic system in place , to ensure you are given a table as soon as possible . Once you are shown to your table you are not pressured to make a choice , but given as much time as you need & once you have made your choice a complimentary large salad bowl is given to the table with , absolutely fabulous bread sticks ( actually they resemble long thin bread roll's! ) this you can snack on until your main meal arrives , and if you have finished it , they ask you would you like another !!
The meals are substantial , and if you can't finish a container is given for you to take home !!
All in all. Great place to eat !!
The only comment I could make was that there is no outside seating & service .

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

When we arrived there was a long line of people waiting..they said about 40 minutes wait but it was only 20. no idea if you can call to reserve.

We had a delicious italian meal . The menu has few choices that are not Italian so if you want steak I don't believe they have any!

Salad or soup is included in the price of the main dish and it's good and unlimited. And for them, unlimited seems really that. As soon as our salad bowl was empty they offered more. Delicious bread sticks are also unlimited.

The service was great. No complaints there.
