We have eaten at this restaurant many times in the past. Food and service are consistantly good. The last time we were there my wife found a metal wing-nut in her meal after she was half-way thru eating it. The manager came to our table to comp. our meals however the thing that got us most was him saying "that could not have come from our kitchen because we don't have those kinds of items in our kitchen". Okay then maybe it came from your supplier or you loading dock but please don't make up an excuse like "we don't have things like that in our kitchen". My dinner was very good and other than the foreign metal object my wife's food was good as well however my wife refuses to eat at Olive Garden again because of her experience. Luckily she didn't bite down on it.

Breadsticks were cold. Sent back once and finally a different wait staff had some cooked fresh for us. She was great. Ours not so much.

They have fresh oysters and they're half off during happy hour. I like the DIY cocktail sauce.

Seems like all you need to do is slap some red sauce on food and it's Italian. Tomatoes aren't even native to Italy, it's from the Americas. The service is ok but the food is terrible. The meat sauce could use more herbs and less sugar.
