“Lunch menu”
Reviewed 15 November 2012

Ordered the capellini pomodoro from the lunch menu. It came with salad and breadsticks, which were the standard fare, nothing exceptional. The capellini,however, tasted like it had been heated up from a can. The pasta was very overdone and did not taste fresh.

“Pretty good food and service”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

The Olive Garden in Richmond IN is a fairly new addition. We went there a few weeks ago for mother's day. We went between the busy lunch period and dinner. The wait was only about 10 minutes which wasn't bad considering. I have eaten at Olive Garden restaurants throughout the midwest.
I had the Five Cheese Ziti al Forno which was the first time for me with this dish. The other person had Eggplant Parmigiana which she usually gets when we visit an Italian restaurant.
Of course they bring out the big salad with breadsticks which are the same in all Olive Gardens. I would rate those as 3.5 on this particular day.
The five cheese ziti was very good and filling. The price was $11.50 so it was worth it. The eggplant parmigiana was rated as very good too. The selection of beers was the usual with no local brews to select from.
Just because a place is part of a chain does not necessarily mean it is bland or not worth your while. I would go back to this Olive Garden which does seem to be a bit better than the other ones I have eaten at in the past few years.
