My husband treated me to a meal out tonight. We hadn't been to Olive Garden in quite a while and thought that it might be a nice change. We got there early, to avoid any possible rush and were shown to a table pretty quickly....More

Love this place, service was great, food was delicious and filling. Have not had a bad experience here. My two boys (15 & 11) are picky eaters - but they loved the food and gobbled up the breadsticks.
