This visit I just wanted soup and salad. I tried 3 soups because they are not spicy but the fourth one with Italain sausage is too spicy for me but my daughter loved it. I ate salad and bread sticks until I couldn't move. The...More

While the waitress was available and attentive, mix-ups with order and billing were frustrating. The meal presentation and taste were not on par with what is generally expected from Olive Garden.

Giovanni's is a staple in South Lorain !! Excellent pizza with plenty of additional items on it. I have never had a bad pizza from here. Value is good for what you receive.... guarantee once you order it you will be a return customer

They had a buy one pasta dinner and receive one to take home. The first order was a nice amount but the second order was a little small, but free. We also got a fresh salad to take home.

Olive Garden was much better than most . The food didn't have the usual yanked out of the freezer presentation. Our waitress was a darling college student. She made our "on the road" stop special!

You get your bang for your buck at this Olivegarden. Had an excellent server by the name of Jack. I would highly recommend asking for her.

We stopped here passing through for dinner. Not many plaves between Sandusky and Cleveland along I-90. This town has a dozen or so options. Our waitress was excellent and friendly, so was the rest of the staff. Just like any other olive garden.

Don't bother ordering soup, salad and breadsticks alone because they come with most of the meals. Early dinner (3-5 PM) special Mon-Thur not honored on holidays. Waitress very good. Chicken and gnocchi soup very good.
