Olive Garden is a family of local restaurants focused on delighting every guest with a genuine Italian dining experience. Delicious Italian Specialities freshly-made daily to pair with a wide variety of Italian wines that will complement your meal. Olive Garden's Culinary Institute of Tuscany, located in the heart of Tuscany, Italy in a restored 11th century village, is where Olive Garden's chefs learn the secrets of great foods in Italy - like how to combine fresh ingredients - to create authentic Italian foods that you'll enjoy sharing with your family and friends.
Yesterday ,Oct 31 , was my 1st and last visit to any Olive Garden. Had the shrimp portofino. It was ok but wasn't crazy about the pasta. The chicken dumpling soup was the best part. Anyway,about 4 hours later,my stomach started churning and from last night until this morning I had diarrhea REALLY bad and 30 hours later as I write this,my stomach still doesn't feel right. I won't be back.
Our daughter has food allergies and the manager was very thorough and accomodating in our request. We called ahead and the staff was friendly and efficient. Would recommend for a family who has a child with food allergies.
i love the olive garden and i keep going back. im am italian and athought it not like my grandmothers cooking it is still one of the best places i have ever been to. i think that anyone who does not like it doesnt know what there missing. i love the olive garden and i vote it the BEST. my family and i enjoy it very more and we will keep on going back
I was definately not happy with this restaraunt. I admit the food was pretty good not excellent thou, it is definately not authentic italian food. But The waitresses were not really paying attention to there job, At the end our party of 8 had 3 checks and 1 party recieved the wrong check. They looked at the total(not what was on the check) paid their bill and walked out of the restaraunt because they had another place they had to be. They other 2 parties were waiting for their credit card transactions to be initiated. Well they would not give them the credit cards back until they called the party that left to get the balance of the money that was due on the check that they never got because the waitress gave them the wrong check. So they had to wait until the other party got back to the restaraunt before they could even get there bills paid. When they did get there reciepts they charged the other 2 bills to one of the cards and didn't charge the other card. So they had to refund the card and charge the other card well I really think that this is a major error on the waitresses part. We had a screaming baby because it was now 9:00 and we got there at 6:30 ya she is one you only can keep a baby in a seat for so long and it was 35 to 40 minutes before the bills all got straightened out. We will never go back there again.
I have been going to OG for many years and have always enjoyed it. Good food, good price, etc. I WILL NEVER GO BACK. The last time I was there I asked to be seated in the smoking section. I was told that the only place smoking was alowed was in the bar area. I had to wait for a table becasue they were all filled. While I waited I noticed people coming in and waiting for non-smoking seats in the smoking, bar area. OG made no effort to tell these people they couldn't wait there because it was the smokers eating area. Out of the 8 or 10 tables that are in the bar, 6 of those had people sitting at them just waiting for a non-smoking table. I told the seating girl she should ask those people to wait somewhere else since this was the smokers eating area. She refused. Her assistant even sided with my suggestion and was quickly yelled at for doing so. It's sad that a place that I used to very much enjoy eating at will never see me again.
Even though Olive Garden is not real Italian food, it is really good. However the prices are rather high for the fact that it is not authentic. There take out is great though, the food is always hot and ready right when you get there.
