Ate with friends for evening dinner and enjoyed the friendly welcome, seating, attentiveness of the server and wide variety of menu selections. Food was prepared well and delivered in a very expeditious manner--tasty lasagna!

I had the Lasagna Classico and salads D it was delicious. Breadsticks were freshly baked. Staff were friendly and courteous. It's the place to go when I crave lasagna 😊

Average Olive Garden food. But see the pictures of the tomato butt from the salad and the empty ice tea glass that took a LONG time to be asked if I wanted refilled. Not to mention the soups that the waiter just plain forgot to bring until reminded that the other in our party had FINISHED her entree. Sad...sad...sad.

Had lunch here today and really enjoyed it, had the soup and salad combo. The soup and breadsticks were delicious and nice to have a healthier vegetarian option in the valley....would recommend!

You can tell that the management here takes customer service serious. A lot of local restaurants in the valley could and SHOULD learn from Olive Garden. Excellent service, clean restaurant, fast service and delicious food. Very friendly staff as well

Authentic Italian food (a large selection of it). Our server was very friendly and welcoming and was happy to help out. The food was amazing, especially the complimentary fresh breadsticks. Nice cosy atmosphere with an authentic Italian feel.
