This Olive Garden although visible from hwy 60 must be accessed from Grand Regency which runs behind the restaurant. This good basic Olive Garden can be busy during peak hours.

We of course, thanked... More

This is my favorite Olive Garden on the Tampa side of the bay. The layout is more inviting than some others and makes it so that it is not too loud even when it is crowded, it is very clean and wait staff is friendly and attentive. The food is the same as the other locations

This is what I call American Italian. The breadsticks are incredible and the soups are filling. Whether you are dining alone or a large group this place can meet your needs with something on the menu for just about everyone.

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.
