We had dinner here on a Tuesday night but the place was busy. The service was good but a little slow and she seemed too quick to want to clear our plates even before we were finished with our food. She never asked us if we would like to sample any wine, which made us decide not to have any.... More

Because of a problem with lactose (I can't eat it--at all!), I can have trouble finding choices on Olive Garden's menu. The soup-and-salad lunch is a go-to for me, especially since the pasta e fagioli has no risk of exposure to lactose. That makes Olive Garden a favorite stop when I'm out for lunch with a friend. On this particular... More

This restaurant is located just off of Highway 99 in southern Chico, convenient to the Oxford Suites hotel across the street where I was staying. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the food was generally good and plentiful. I liked the way they had numerous bottles of wine that they will pour you tastes of, as well and recommendations for... More

I went to Olive Garden because it was right by my hotel and my family had a little fit asking why I'd go to a chain restaurant when Chico has such amazing independently owned options. I'd agree. Although Olive Garden's food was great tasting there were definite cons to going. 1. Had to wait to get a table and they... More

We chose this restaurant because it was familiar to us. It was very tasty and the service was fine. Overall, we would return if we were in the area.

They were out of the menu items we ordered but weren't told what items were not available until after our order was placed and some of our food was missing some ingredients. I ordered the Tour of Italy dish and none of it was good. The pasta sauce was so salty I couldn't eat it and I love my food... More

We love Olive Garden. The staff is always so friendly and welcoming. My favorite dinner is the Seafood Alfredo. Just the right amount of shrimp and scallops. For lunch my favor is still soup, salad and bread sticks.

Sited just off I5 this place is so handy that I don't bother going into Chico anymore, plus I always know what I'm going to get is up to my fairly high standards for food and hygiene The menu tries to be imaginative, which is near impossible for a chain of restaurants but nonetheless they do pretty well, although the...
