My youngest daughter and i went for never ending pasta last week. She is vegetarian and loves pasta. The food is the same as all Olive Gardens so unless you have never been, you know what to expect. The addition of grilled chicken to the never ending pasta was a plus for me as i do eat meat. Sodas are... More

Resturant was very clean and the food was excellent. Our waitress was extremely nice and right in time. Seating was a little slow with no one there. Lady seating us let us know know one knew what they was doing..

The salad here is great! The soup & salad lunch is a great price and is very tasty! The pastas that I've eaten have been great as well although a little on the expensive for a pasta style chain.

I've always loved Olive Garden but sometimes you run into those few Olive Garden restaurants that stand out more than others. This is one of them. The service was excellent. The food was great, hot, and fast. The environment was positive, upbeat, and happy with a calm vibe. I am eager to go here again!

This Olive Garden never fails to satisfy my hunger. The salads are always fresh and the staff is helpful and friendly. Even with a rush and crowd they get food served quickly.

My husband and I visited Olive Garden tonight after seeing their endless pasta bowl promotion advertised on tv. We have had poor experiences at this restaurant in the past, but wanted to give them another shot especially after seeing a commercial which states that the customer can enjoy "endless combinations of pastas, sauces and toppings". Seems pretty self explanatory right?... More

We had a great Sunday family dinner tonight. Our server was excellent, had the never ending pasta bowl and wife had tour of Italy. Both were very good and more than we could eat when combined with the bread and soup and salad. If you've never tried it try the gnocchi soup, very good. Wife and daughter finished with lemon...

Olive Garden used to be a lavish experience, but their food just tastes so basic these days. The sauce is bland and the pasta just tastes childish. The dishes do not taste professional, but like something my niece made in home ec. The Tour of Italy was so very disappointing. The chicken parmesan was tough. I couldn't tell if it... More
