“Overpriced for skimpy portions”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

Once in a while I get a hankering for Italian food and then I go to Olive Garden. Not because it is the best but because it is the ONLY Italian place around! In general I find the portions skimpy ( particularly sauces on pasta -- pasta is always dry and under-sauced). I like the fact that you can sample wines for a small fee but I think the food is for the most part unremarkable and I really don't see why this place is so crowded -- but it always is!

The employees are always very friendly. The food is always excellent. I may be a bit prejudice since my favorite cuisine is Italian.
