The temptation is too eat too much as they offer close to unlimited pasta and salad. The 3-pasta dish is too much (won't get to third one). Gorgonzola pasta was too cloying. One also can fill up on breadsticks and garlic bread, so no need for appetizer. The seats are nice as roll back so easier to get up after... More

Rich and scrumptious sauces, meats, pastas, cheeses. One could come to dinner for a month and not try all their selections! There are the heavier sauces from the southern part of Italy and the lighter creamy sauces from the north. Their salads are large and fresh and there are always bread sticks buttery and garlicky! The ambiance is welcoming and... More

The wine tasting at the beginning of your visit makes you feel a lot like, regardless of your attire, you're fine dining. This always get two thumbs up from me! The wines taste so good, the potato soup and the bread to accent it, "Absolutely outstanding when it comes to taste!" I love the wait staff, never cease to amaze... More

The soups were freshly prepared and the taste was fantastic. Tuscan and the one with the chicken were the best. I didn't get the exact names I just ask what they have in them. The service was good. They were very on it when it came to all of your orders. There were 8 of us and they were on... More

This is a typical chain quality. Nothing special to mention comparing it to other olive garden in Bay area. This is a convenient place for lunch where you do not have to think much about what to order. bread sticks and salads are good.

We both have always been fans of this chain restaurant. We had another terrific meal here which was complimented with great service by our Middle Eastern waiter. This particular restaurant/site quickly seated us--thank God because we were starving.

Great bread, soup and salad. Always fresh and more than you can eat. Plus the entrees are plentiful and very tasty
