Being gluten free I thought it may be harder to navigate the menu but it turns out they have lots of options. I got one of the chicken dishes. The flavour was great but the portion was very small. I guess they really want you to fill up on the salad and breadsticks. I would come back again, especially since... More

We went to the Olive Garden last night and was served by Tammi W. When she arrived at our table, she immediately offered a wine sample which was great. She was also very good and patient with us because when I dine I like to take my time. She understood our concerns and was great. When I go back I... More

Great place to gather. We met family and were able to just sit back and relax and talk. They didn't rush us out of the restaurant.

This we all know is a chain, most of us have been to one, the food is pretty much the same, some might be better than the next. The one thing we all hope for is great service ! My husband and I went for our date night on Friday, I can not say enough about our server, Precious !... More

A great place for families to gather for a wide variety of Italian food. The salads are great. They provide table games for the children to keep busy. Friendly staff.

Proportioned, pre-made, heat up and serve poor quality food. The service was good. Prices are fairly low to attract the budget conscious people.

Very crowded, 35 minute wait. Service good but food was average, although upon starting to take the order the server stopped, said she was choking and ran off. It was jarring. Just say "excuse me" like people with sense do. My grilled salmon was overcooked and the side of brocolli was stone cold and limp. For eighteen bucks they should... More

No matter what Italian dish you are craving, chances are you will find it here. The menu diversity is great and the food is good. Just be aware not to go there at 6-7pm and expect to be seated immediately. All of the restaurants in this area get really crowded around this time.

Tonight we went here for dinner last minute, myself, my husband and our two small children. When we arrived the 3 hostesses greeted us then when we asked for a booth with a high chair they said that they do not do that and were very rude about it, not a good start. Our server was nice enough to ask... More
