I go here, but for real Italian food I drive to Alvin, believe it or not. There is an unimpressive looking cafe there called Luigi's. The guy is an Italian and Bosnian but his food is great. There's nothing wrong with the Olive Garden but it ain't really Italian. Also too noisy and crowded usually. So lots of people like it. They don't like Italian food, I guess.

Like the bread and the salad. In the past, would get the Tour of Italy, but now like the pasta filled with meat. Good pasta sauce. Can be a long wait sometimes even during the week.

Olive Garden at Willowbrook is soooo good you will wait to be seated but do not dispair. You will be glad you waited because your meal will be so good. Each menu item is prepared and served with excellence. First, I love their flavored teas-Raspberry or peach. I love the peach the best. These are by far the best flavored teas in the world. IT's worth it just going for their tea, but wait. .. The salad--Oh, my gosh, I love their salad. I could be a vegetarian and live in their salad bowl with their bread sticks.
But wait, their soups. I love the one with the potatoe chunks and green leafy things. Taste it. It is soo good you have to keep eating it and it is light. You will feel GOOD when you are finished. Not bloated.
Then, the menu items, all are good. I like their dish which had the pasta with clams or something on the noodles, in a light clear sauce ( I hate cream sauces) so this item was fabulous. It had a name -- porta -- something. Anyway that was my favorite. Then there is desert. Take your pick You will like verything. And, you will be back!!
