“Good but long waiting time”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We went there without any pre-booking and didn't know that it will take 30 minutes before we can table. This place is so crowded and certainly for a reason (Good food, service & ambiance)...

“Lovely ambiance”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Great food with free wine tasting.
Friendly server.
The ambiance is very lovely.
Sometimes you get good deals from them which gets a dinner for 2 within $25 that includes soup/salad, 2 entee and a desert :)

“Olive Garden, Milipitas, Great Mall”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

This was the first time I have ever been to an Olive Garden, I've been told I HAD to go for a long time but never had the opportunity until this time. I am SOOOO glad we went!

The service was out of this world fantastic, super friendly and attentive.

The food was great; we had a few appetizers to start on top of the delicious fresh out of the oven breadsticks and salad which comes with the meal. I had their egg plant dish and it was phenomenal! They did it perfectly.

If I ever get the chance to go to an Olive Garden again it will be my first choice!

“Nice surprise eating in a restaurant franchise”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

I did not expect this from a franchise chain: nice atmosphere, good food (not as great as in Italy, but acceptable), friendly for the budget too.

“americanized italian kitchen”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

its like a diner that speaks italian. or is it the other way around?
for me the combination does not suit very well. it is not an italien restaurant but they try to cook italian food, which is not bad. but italien food is just fast food, if you take it away and eat it right away. otherwise you take time in a nice ambiente.
but you should try yourself because its part of the american culture. i just did not like it.
