This restaurant shares a parking lot with a Red Lobster Restaurant in a very busy retail area just off I-91. It is busy, good service if a bit rushed. But a happy, well fed crowd.

This is a fall to restaurant when you are looking for something on the quicker side and not high end. Good for those sweatshirt and jean evenings. It is a typical chain, food as expected, service usually very good at this location I must say, pleasant waiter the past several times. What I do really like when I come here... More

A very busy Italian reataurant at lunch and dinner time. It seems there is always a wait which speaks volumes about this reataurant. The food is almost always good! We love the endless salad, breadsticks and soup, but don't fill up on them! The choices on their menu are very Italian but extremely tasty. Their menu is always changing, so... More

This is a 'must visit' every visit to New Haven. Good Italian food. Great value for money. Unlimited soup or salad to accompany your main course. Large portions. Very popular, most often there is a 15-30 minute waiting period.

Hadn't heard anything great about Olive Garden in general, by a co-worker loves the lunch specials, so we stopped in. Sigh...here it is: Never ending salad made with iceberg lettuce. Lots of it. With a few other veggies thrown in. This is as bland as salad gets. Very salty bread sticks. Like, salt with bread on the side. Plain Jane... More

I just went there today with my mom, niece and sister. I had there spicy shrimp and their amazing salad. If you never had salad there you truly are missing something. They have a light fare menu although I didn't choose from it today I have in the past and the Rosemary Chicken is truly delicious. 575 calories nice.
