“"italian" version of chilies or fridays or other chain restaurants. it's ok”
Review of Olive Garden

Reviewed 14 April 2017

you can go as menu-fancy as a mediterranean variety... or as simple as soup, salad and breadsticks. and the "duo" menu selections give you bottomless salad... or endless bowls of soup.

hint: "pasta e fagioli" --quite good. :)

easy in and out near north avenue from george st, with lotsa parking. waitstaff often goes out of its way to be helpful, speedy. (sometimes annoyingly out of its way with more than enough "is everything ok?" appearances ..!)

sit-in, relax. food's decent/good, overhead speakers irritatingly loud, prices reasonable, and atmosphere generally friendly. --but why, with a dozen empty tables, do they have to put new patrons at one right next to you?? (now, suppose you've got some delicate business to discuss...?) --an annoying restaurant quirk of the ages..., olive garden, et. al.

indeed. expect a casual and satisfying lunch without the hub-bub of the grab-and-go, 'fast,' plastic-food arena.

We came here on Valentines day for an early evening dinner. We were told the wait to be about 30-35 minutes we were seated in 20 with a large crowd of people. When we were waiting the staff brought out baked or fried Raviolis for guests who were waiting, a pleasant surprise. The service was excellent considering such a busy night. The food was what is expected of a typical Olive Garden restaurant. If you have eaten here before you know what you are getting. The overall experience was what was great, from the wait until dinner was served the staff was well prepared for such a busy evening. Good Job!!

Great breadsticks and meal options. Excellent alfredo dishes and delicious chicken parmesan. Nothing amazing, but they are consistent with meeting what you expect.

I go here with my family and this place has the best service. There is usually a 30 minute wait on Saturdays, it gets very busy, but it's worth it.
