Stopped here for lunch and it seems most people around our table were have the unlimited soup and salad. We did too and it is very good. When you leave you aren't stuffed and on a chilly, rainy day the soup tastes great.

We stopped here on our way to San Francisco... We were hungry. I ordered the pasta carbonara. Tasteless, oily, canned shrimp, overcooked. The waitress Nikki didn't ask when she saw my full plate if everything was okay. Will never go to an Olive Garden again. Oh...and it was way overpriced!

basic Olive Garden fare ... San Luis Obispo location is fairly new. Been there about 5 times since it opened and the service is pretty slow and sporadic ... had to wave our server down for drink refills and waited over 1/2 hour for our main dish. Many dishes very salty. BUT ... the best Italian dressing ANYWHERE !

I hadn't eaten at an Olive Garden in years and this was a very nice experience. The prices are extremely reasonable and the food was great. I had the never ending pasta and a salad. The server was also on top of our needs.

I've eaten at the San Luis Obispo Olive Garden 3 times since they opened and the food has been excellent, service excellent and friendly, and they execute very well. The wine list is very good and reasonably priced and they will offer you a tasting.

I give it 5 stars because it hits ITS mark. Really good Italian, nice atmosphere, excellent service, and priced right.
