“What's up with all the waiting????”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Food is okay, nothing special if you ask me, and why is there always a 45 minute to 3 hour wait? Not worth it to me.

“Awesome Italian Food ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Just had dinner at one of my most favorite Italian restaurants in Visalia..... Yes.. Olive Garden. I love the local mom and pop Italian restaurants......but Olive Garden is just GREAT too... The Visalia store is ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS busy...... If you don't mind having your lunch or dinner in the bar area.... that's your best bet! Maybe a 15 to 25 minute wait for your food... Always GREAT food.

“Typical chain”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

Yes, its popular and you know what you will get no matter what city your in, but I much prefer locally owned Italian restaurants that use homemade, fresh, and organic ingredients. I'll only go here when I'm traveling and can't find a local alternative.
