The food is getting worse here. Everything looks and tastes the same. Food is mediocre at best. The salad is still amazing!!!

We ordered 3 pasta dishes with soup/ salad and 1 person ordered soup and salad. 2 of us did not even finish the soup that our entrees were ready. The server did not put cheese on soup or salad or the dinner. We had to tell the other server to call her as she apparently never saw the light flashing... More

Visited in September 2016. Seems like their lunch portion of spaghetti marinara is larger than other locations I've visited throughout the years in Canada and the US. Server was a trainee so it took a little longer than normal to get the order placed and the food this time. I was staying along Ocean Beach near Golden Gate park. I... More

It was very busy so there was a 15 minute wait to be seated. The service was good and our waitress was very friendly. The free breadsticks and salad were tasty. We ordered chicken parmigiana and stuffed chicken marsala which were pretty average.

Not a very romantic place. But great for the kids and if you have a large group and you're on a budget - like break and salad. Otherwise, nothing really special. The one thing I didn't like was the a musky odor, and it just happens to be the cheese. It's a cute and nicely decorated place, but nothing special... More

So OG was a great family dinner place for our family. We made some great memories and it was once place where entire family was always game. We loved the unlimited salads, soup, and bread sticks. Loved the Egg Plant Parmesan (best is at Maggiano's Little Italy) and the non-alcoholic drinks. We always hated that the vegetarian choices were limited... More

We had dinner after the Super Bowl on 2/7/16. We arrived at the restaurant around 8:00pm and even though the restaurant was only half full, we still had to wait around 20 minutes to be seated. After we placed our orders, the salad & soup were served within 15 minutes. Our biggest complaint came when all 4 of us were... More

I had a lunch with friends. Nice service and fair price ($27 per person including soft drinks) for the type of restaurant. I tried the 'Italian Tour'. Generous portion but average taste. Nothing special. It's OK.
