Not as bad as I remember from eating at OG almost thirty years ago. The zuppa toscana wasn't half bad. Better than the pasta fagioli, which tasted like it was from a can. There wasn't even a cherry pepper in it (for shame). Don't bother with the zucchini bites... they tasted gummy, like savory Hubba-Bubba. The Chicken Marsala was good, but a little too much olive oil. The ziti my wife had was so-so. I got Alfredo fettuccine on the side; I think it came from a Knorr packet (ugh). Basically, still the Mickey D's of Italian-American food. Really good service, though, very friendly people working there.

Went to the Olive Garden for a lunch with my husband. Noted that they were busy but we waited. We were seated near tables that were dirty. Even dirty dishes were stacked between the booths. We did not see a manager walking around. When We were greeted the waitress showed us the computer devise sitting at our table. No demonstration on how to use it . Very dissatisfied with the food and cleanliness of the restaurant as a whole. Probably will not go there again for a while.

If you were to dine between 4:00 and 6:00 PM you will find a nice variety of specials at $8.99, offering a terrific value. Lunch specials are available as well. The "regular" menu is varied and cost is reasonable. Service is always good. Try the house salad pared with their pasta dishes. The wine selection is good.

After many years and visits, we have always been very satisfying with the service and especially the food. Their menu is always changing and exciting. They even have great food for children and elderly who don't eat large meals. Don't forget the unlimited salad and soup but leave room for the main couse.

We had lunch here on a Sunday, and it was busy as usual. I like Olive Garden because they have new specialty menu items occasionally, and it gives you a chance to try out different Italian dishes besides the regular choices. We enjoy the fresh, refillable, salad, and it's hard to avoid those breadsticks. Our server was very attentive to our drinks, asking us for our cheese preferences, and taking care of our take-home boxes. Nice experience, and well worth the visit.
