My first time at one of the OG places was almost 15 years ago at Kansas City and I like it. I use to visit Chulavista's quite often. Good menu, nice atmosphere and excellent attention. Just one suggestion: remove the carpets, is difficult to keep them clean and there is a smell in the place. Ceramic tiles are much cleaner... More

It is hared to even describe behavior of the staff and management on the night when our family walked into the restaurant after grieving our mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother at the local Chula Vista Mortuary. It was 10 pm when we walked in, in a sombre atmosphere, about 20 members of the family, including kids and adults ranging from 10... More

This location is much pricier than we're used to because...well, it's in California, and everything costs more than we're used to. But the entire staff was concerned about our wait times, and they were great about our daughter's birthday (which was the reason for our visit). The food was good, and our family's vegetarians and omnivores were all happy with... More

It is a cut above many places in food Quality and there is The endless pasta bowl specials every once in awhile that make the Olive Garden worth every Penny! The service is always fast and efficient, they have those flashing hockey pucks to let you know... More

May not be the cheapest place but the food is excellent. What I always feel when I go there is that the lobby has a strange smell maybe because it has restrooms on both sides. The service is fast and the server take the time to explain the dishes if you need. We ordered the Chicken & Gnocchi soup, Chicken... More

The food is good, but it is a little expensive for noodle dishes. It's a nice place for a romantic dinner---but it is much too expensive place for a family with children.

This is a good average place to take the family for italian american food. Their all you can eat salad is a cheap bargain and their bread is good, the rest of the menu is average good and reasonably priced, always well attended and the service is consistently good.
