“Nothing Special”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Not that I was expecting authentic Italian fare, but perhaps the preparation could have been better executed. I feel that the food here has been microwaved...It tastes a bit bland. I do enjoy the endless salad and breadsticks.

“Special Day”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Olive Garden is not a convenient stop for us, but we often go out of our way for the food! The soups, salads, and bread sticks are so good (with unlimited refills) that we tend to be full before the entrees even arrive. The entrees are delicious, and there are usually new dishes to try every time we go.

“Never expected it to be that nice”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

I had their usual salad which was made of very fresh veggies and the dressing was just fantastic! Had the spicy buffalo wings which was superb! One of the best i have tasted so far. I had it with rice which i noticed was too much carb because they served their own bread (i dont know what they call it), which pretty much goes with everything. I also tasted their pasta with white sauce (alfredo or carbonara??) which was also wonderful. I wanted to try a lot more in their menu but sadly it was just me and my sister so didn't want to order too much. The few food that i have tasted indeed were fantastic. They get to be very busy so allot time for service. The pink lemonade was yummy!
