I have a special needs child and he can be a such in restaurants. They made him feel comfortable and made us feel at home. Glad we chose there to eat during our visit to the area.

Food was pretty good but I have noticed that their individual entrees are somewhat better than their "unlimited pasta bowl" and salad (I have been to this restaurant several times in the last three months because it is conveniently close to where my son and his wife live and their prices are reasonable). Their salad and their soups are good... More

Enjoyable but nothing spectacular. Waiter was pretty attentive but he had several other tables. Four out of six of us had salad so we went through it pretty quickly. I guess because our meals came out pretty quickly, server didn't inquire if we'd like more salad. My husband ordered the pasta with meat sauce that you can get refills on... More

I planned a nice surprise dinner for my husbands birthday with a couple of our closest friends. Since it was sunday they could not do reservations, but can put you in the front of the list if you call them an hour ahead. Well I called them 2 hours ahead.

This isn't authentic tasty Italian; sure the salad and breadsticks are tasty but nothing else. Everything (or most) is premade or comes frozen and they need to simply zap it... stuff I can do at home!!

This is a very good family friendly Italian Restaurant. You can depend on consistency within this chain of restaurants. Usually a place that offers good service and the food offerings are quite nice.

Favorite place to eat is Olive Garden. Love the soup/salad deals, make your own pasta, and seafood pasta options. Be ready to wait a little longer on holidays but it's worth the wait. Celebrate your next special event at Olive Garden. The workers enhance your event with a song. Enjoy!!

The only thing fresh about Olive Gardens is the salad. Everything else is prepared frozen food that they heat and serve. If you like "airplane food", this is the place for you. Better yet, why not save yourself some money, buy frozen dinners at the store, and heat and serve yourselves!?
