This is a new building and is quite large and impressive for OG. We stopped in on a Friday evening before the rush on our way back to ATL from The Keys. Very convenient to I-75. Service was attentive and polite. Food came out in a timely manner. The manager came out to check on us and overall it was a good stop for us. We picked "Tour of Italy" to share, as we eat smaller portions than most Americans seem to consume. Combined with the salad, we were fine, although a bit disappointed with the food. Lasagna tasted strong, almost bitter and we suspect sausage is in the mix. Alfredo was best thing on the plate. The chicken parm was unseasoned and bland. It's funny, but the basic dishes seem to be the worst and the special offerings are frequently the best at OG! Perhaps it's because the line cooks handle the basics and the chefs handle the specials? I only eat in places like this when I'm on the road and now I know why!

My husband and I went there for our anniversary. I was, needless to say, not impressed. The waitress never smiled or acted like she cared about the restaurant's patrons. It took an hour to receive our food and when we did, I was not happy. I ordered spaghetti with a red sauce and I swear, the sauce was tasteless and tasted like it should have been used for calamari. My husbands chicken was overcooked and very tough and his white sauce was flavorless. We were so upset, we didn't even finish our dinner. I will never go there again.
