“Better than your average chain restaurant”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

This place was packed when we lemmingly like followed a crowd in, but it was a cold, dark and windy night and the thought of soup and pasta lured us in.
We were seated fairly quickly (actually ate in the bar, that may have made a difference). Server kindly offered samples of wine, what a great way to get diners to buy more.
We ordered the suggested wine, salad and soup to start. The salad is good, house dresiing is tasty. Minestrone is really salty, no refills on that one thank you.
The 3 selection Italian sampler dish was nice- chicken parm, lasagne and fettucine alfredo. Pasta cooked al dente, sauces tasty and not overly oily, chicken was crisp, cooked nicely.
Took much of this home, will most likely consider Olive Garden again if one presents itself.
Service was a little rough, but the place was packed. Food delivered hot and reasonably quick. Prices are nice on the wallet.

“Good food, portions enough for 2 meals”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Enjoyed our recent visit to Olive Garden. The atmosphere was nice and we enjoyed a complimentary wine sample. Food selection was good including some healthier options. We each ordered a meal and had enough left overs for another meal. The endless salad and bread sticks are wonderful. Waitress was friendly and very attentive. We will go back.
