When traveling, my wife and I tend to frequent Olive Garden restaurants because of the service and value. This Olive Garden did not disappoint. The entrees were delicious and the service was outstanding.

Olive Garden is a chain that is all over. It is always good. There in Dubuque I had the Ravioli di Portebello which was very good.
