“Great food but get there early”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

We always pay a visit to the Olive Garden at Fort Myers when we go on vacation to Cape Coral. Getting a table can be difficult, usually there is a wait of around 20 minutes but this does depend on the time you visit. We have been to various Olive Garden restaurants in the USA and this happens at all of them. They do not accept reservations. Love their Minestrone Soup. Staff always seem friendly. Prices are pretty reasonable too. I love Italian food and always try to find Italians restaurants wherever we travel to. I would say this is up there with the best.

“Reasonanable Prices but go early”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

We went there at 6pm on a Saturday and ended up waiting for about 35 minutes for a seating. The Olive Garden is well maintained with good service and I love the endless soup and salad offered with every meal. Next time we will go a bit earlier and see if we can cut down on the wait time.

“Great soup”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Great soup and salad, however, our waiter could have been friendlier. We've been to many Olive Gardens, and overall have had a good experience with the food and service. Fort Myers' OG is sub standard. We were going to have dessert, but our waiter didn't even ask us if we would like to order one. He came with the check. We felt rushed.

“Nice dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

We had a nice dinner at the bar. The pastas and wine were good and the service excellent. The portions were very large and could easily be split.

“Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We like that you can get a free wine sample. The food is good and a good value. We also like that it is near we live and very large parking facilities in Coconut Point Shopping Mall.
