Although Olive Garden is a chain restaurant, I find some of them to be very good. I love their endless salad and breadsticks, and their entrees are served hot and generous portions. I had the Steak Gorgonzola over pasta. The beef was tender and had good flavor. The oversize stuffed rigatoni were very good, but they are basically manicotti shells... More

If you are looking for a good meal at a reasonable price, this is a place to go. The salad and bread was excellent and my meal was very good. While not high end Italian was an excellent meal at a good price.

Each meal starts with a choice of (4) soups or their well known salad. The salad comes family style and it is dished onto a chilled plate. It seemed especially good and I love their salad dressing. We had chicken & shrimp carbonara over linguine, and stuffed rigatoni in a meat sauce. Very generous portions. The choice of wine was... More

Went there on a Saturday night with my mother. My mother had the shrimp with angel hair pasta. I had the trio with lasagna, fettucine alfredo, and chicken parmagiana. I also had a nice chicken soup. The service was great and the food was excellent. The food tasted homemade. It was very good.
