We enjoyed a recent dinner while passing through town. Michael was our server and as we requested a quick meal he was very attentive to our service. Pasta and salad was delicious.

Stopped in with my "Main Squeeze" for a quick lunch of soup and salad. Very good, bread sticks - a personal favorite on the table in quick time. Soup was very good, and was the salad.

I absolutely love a meal at Olive Garden but have had it - their dishes always have a tiny amount of marinara sauce on them. Side of pasta with sauce? If you like enough sauce for 20% of your pasta I guess it works -...More
