Olive Garden is very popular in South Burlington and there are reasons for that. Location, they take reservations, the food is excellent and the staff is friendly with great service. The menu offers lower calorie selections now which are very good and satisfying.

We went to Olive Garden for lunch on a Monday. The food this trip was very good and well proportioned: not too much food or two little. My spouse got the unlimited soup and salad and bread sticks. A nice touch, only available until 4pm. The spaghetti with meat sauce and the chicken parmegian were both very tasty. Their sauce is well spiced: just enough basil and salt. The chicken was crisp-fried, not mushy like some chicken parms at restaurants. The limitless salad for lunch is also nice, although they go overboard on the dressing--with a bit too much vinegar. The server was appropriately attentive, bringing refills of drinks without having to ask for them. And the prices were very reasonable. three of us ate, with soft drinks, for $40.

The price is right, but the food is mediocre. I was underwhelmed with the taste of the salad and the pasta.

Have been to this restaurant a few times and have always made the mistake of ordering a cheese sauce dish. This time it was scallops Alfredo. Scallops were tiny and the Alfredo sauce was bland and without taste. Salad and breadsticks were fine. Don't know why people like this place so much. Maybe dishes with red sauces are better?
