Need a little Italian but don't want to cook! Olive Garden is the place. Great selection...hubby had the Italian Appetizer Sample for his dinner so he had a bit of his favorites...fried calamari, stuffed mushrooms and mozarella sticks. I had the Chicken and Shrimp Carbonara. It tasted wonderful but needed more chicken and shrimp to meet my expectations unfortunately.

Never had such poor service at an Olive Garden. Waiter didn't seem to know the individual order for each guest. Food was very slow to arrive. "All You Can Eat Pasta Night" and it must have been 45 minutes to receive second helping. Something about another waitperson took our food and then a manager had to be called to rectify... More

We usually go to the Olive Garden on US-41 in Ft. Myers for their fabulous mussels, and soup and salad. After shopping at Miromar Outlets, we met friends at this Olive Garden. As usual, we ordered 2 platters of mussels to share. After trying them, we all agreed that they were not very good and in no way compared to... More

We love going to Olive Garden, especially for their salad, soup & breadsticks. We also love their other food items, like lasagna and the other Italian dishes. You'll definitely not be hungry when you leave Olive Garden!

Typical Olive Garden dining experience in an upscale shopping area close to FGCU and RSW. Nice atmosphere and good waiters.

Today the 4th of July we went for an early dinner. The service was terrible. After we were seated others came in and was served before us. The salad came and our server said they were out of bread sticks. As the tables around us were served the bread sticks. I asked the manager and the came out with him.... More

The best value at lunchtime is the meatball sandwich & salad. You receive all you can eat salad good deal and bread sticks. Pick the meatball sandwich, ask that they hold the bread and ask that the meatballs remain whole not cut in half. If you forget they will cut the balls in half and only give you three or... More

We've stopped here several times. It's very good. Service has always been top notch. Normally I get the soup and salad. Fills the hole.

Never had a bad server here, they must train very well. Server gave us ample time to finish salad and appetizer prior to bring main dish. In my opinion, the food here was a bit better than other Olive Gardens I have been to.
