Great service, excellent staff. Like the wine test options. Would like a pesto option. With pasta, chicken or shrimp. And a pesto sandwich on homemade bread.

I was pleasantly surprised to find Vegan and gluten--free options on the menu because I have not been able to dine out much since developing an autoimmune disorder with very specific dietary needs. The waitress was perfectly matched to discuss my needs. Our couple with a wedding anniversary was offered complimentary dessert. The wait was 15 minutes when we arrived... More

We went in and did a takeout order. I have never had a bad experience there. We have an 8 person order. Perfection, everything was there and tasted great.

It's a chain restaurant, so I don't expect much. The food is a consistently decent American version of Italian food. High-priced for the ingredients in most of the dishes. The Zuppa Toscana keeps me coming back though.

I would have given them 5 stars--however they have a shortage of parking spaces at this facility, I have ordered take-out on a number of occasions and I have been unable to find a parking spot when I go to pick up my order. All spaces in the lot are filled including spaces reserved for Take-out Customers.

Good food with a variety of options, friendly staff. Busy restaurant and parking lot though....even for a mid-afternoon late lunch the place (especially the parking lot) was packed.

Olive Garden is the most amazing place to eat in Saginaw. The food choices are wonderful, we always choose the pasta meals as they are so so good! Wonderful surrounding, friendly staff and delicious food!

Can't go wrong with a chain restaurant. Olive Garden is pretty consistent. Our waitress Anna was very nice and checked on us regularly. Thank you!
