4 of us enjoyed a family meal yesterday and we were served by Jake C. He made this experience even better with his humour, smiles and attention. The food as usual was very good as well. We wish we still had these restaurants in Canada. We will return.

We tried twice over the previous year to have dinner at Olive Garden on Cleveland Ave. in Fort Myers. The first time the service and server were absolutely awful. So bad, in fact that the manager comped our meal. On the 2nd visit, we were seated and completely ignored, so got up and walked out without anyone asking why! Someone... More

The food was excellent as was the service. I hadn't been there in a while since I was not happy last time I went but they have definitely improved. Food was delicious.

This is a big Olive Garden on a busy highway. There are a lot of servers and bus people. Mostly distracted by one another. Kind of like a high school dance. The food is typical OG. I noticed portion sizes have shrunk especially the 5 cheese fondue. Its half the size it used to be. Parking is small for a... More

We arrived at Olive Garden and even though the parking lot was full, we were immediately seated. Be sure to bring a sweater because it is quite cool in the restaurant. Our orders were taken quickly and then our salad arrived. When we were seated, we were not given any cutlery so we had to ask for same. We sat... More

Stopped for an eat-and-chat with friends before we went our separate ways, and it was perfectly satisfactory. Nothing more; nothing less. The lunch duos were filling, tasty, nicely priced and quickly served. The lasagna was especially nicely seasoned and well worth it. Service was fast, friendly and professional. IIWII - Olive Garden fits a niche and this restaurant was one... More

You know the menu and you know what to expect. But sometimes they let you down either on the food or the service or, heaven forbid, both. Especially on New Year;s Eve. Not the case here. Everything was executed quite well by the both the server and the kitchen. What was supposed to be cold was cold and what was... More

You just can't beat this place! Salad is crisp and the dressing is wonderful! The salad is unlimited as well! Entrées are very good and reasonably priced. If you want a lovely Italian dinner at a good price with great service, then this is the place to go.
