“Can't get enough of their breadsticks and salad!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

This is a favourite of ours for family dining. The kids love the breadsticks and hot tomato sauce with salad to start. Usually we're so stuffed after free refills that we struggle to eat our main courses - tip: share a main or order a starter as a main. Staff are usually friendly and helpful too.

“Good food. Super slow.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

As usual, the food is always well prepared and tasty. Even though it was not packed, the server was slow and the kitchen was especially slow. We were in a hurry and it took well over an hour for easily prepared items.

“Old reliable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Been visiting Orlando for several years now and this is one of these safe places where you always seem to have a nice meal.
Slight changes in the menu over recent years with an emphasis on healthy options.

The star of the show yet again were the amazing bread sticks which really are superb. Nice atmosphere, good service, good food, great value.

Well done Olive Garden. See you soon!

“Amazing food, excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

We had heard good reviews about this from our rep & by looking at trip advisor. We got to the restaurant at 830pm, were given a buzzer & told there was a half hour wait for a table of two. Went to the bar & I had a Strawberry Daiquiri cocktail, this was amazing! Best Strawberry Daiquiri I've ever had! Within about twenty minutes our buzzer went off so we met the hostess to be seated. The restaurant is huge and has a great atmosphere. As soon as we were seated, we were given a basket of bread which was delicious. A huge bowl of salad was then brought over & our order taken. The bread and salad is complimentary. We had a platter to share. We had stuffed mushrooms, pork ravioli I, fried mozzeralla on ours it was lovely. I then had stuffed chicken with garlic mashed potatoes. It was huge! I had two chicken breasts on top of one another, it was gorgeous. I could not finish it, so our waitress Carey, boxed it up along with the remainder of our salad. This is very common place in America, as our waitress explained, portion sizes are so big, people take home what they can't finish. We explained in the UK this is frowned upon! She also advised us if we came to eat again, try not to fill up on bread/salad as with us, we won't be able to manage the main! This restaurant is definitely one to try if you are staying in Orlando & passing International Drive.
