Went here for lunch had the soup and salad special. I get the soup with the potatoes in it I can't remember the name but it the only soup they have that I like. It's awesome soup. Was a good lunch. I like their pastas too except for their lasagna , it's not very good . I make better lasagna.

Called ahead for seating for a large group. Still waited over 45 minutes to get in and then, took over 2 hours for our meal service once inside (yep, 3 hrs there.). Not our server's fault... She was assigned too many people with no additional help. Wanted to warn the many people waiting they might be there a while when... More

The service was prompt and friendly and the portions were huge. The salad by all reports was wonderful and my soup was delicious. They were served with garlic breadsticks which were... More

Stopped in and had lunch the other day. Martha was our server and couldn't have been better. She was pleasant and attentive without hovering. The food was great as usual and the atmosphere is always great. The hostess had a very thick accent and was very hard for us to understand. Other than that our experience was great.

We planned on stopping here after we were done shopping, we opted for soup and salad unlimited and the 2 kids ate off the children's menu, food was delicious as always. Prices are good and service was quick as always. We come back here every time we are on holidays in Lakeland.

This was my second visit to this particular Olive Garden. Both the food and the service were very good. We started with appetizers: Lasagna Fritta and Stuffed Mushrooms. The Lasagna Fritta is a family favorite that never disappoints. I did not try the Stuffed Mushrooms, but the rest of our group found them to be delicious. The Tour of Italy... More

My wife and I have horrible luck most of the time when we go out to eat, but when we went to Olive Garden, the service was top notch. The wait staff worked great helping to make sure our table was looked after. I really like it when I never have an empty drink; they never let me run dry.... More
