If you have eaten at Olive Garden, you have eaten at Olive Garden and this is just like all of the rest of them. Place was clean, wait staff was attentive, and there were no surprises. It is not as good as a Cabrera's but there was no Cabrera's in Gainesville so here you are at Olive Garden.

When I first walked in I was immediately welcomed by the staff, after being seated my server was very attentive. In other restaurants I've noticed the food is a bit dry and dull but this place give the food every ounce of flavor... More

One sign of a good restaurant is the amount of people that are dining at the establishment. Another factor is the age ranges of the people. During our luncheon on the way back from shopping, we experienced a full restaurant and a varied age range. We were immediately taken to a clean table. Or waiter was pleasant and attentive.our food... More

My youngest daughter and i went for never ending pasta last week. She is vegetarian and loves pasta. The food is the same as all Olive Gardens so unless you have never been, you know what to expect. The addition of grilled chicken to the never ending pasta was a plus for me as i do eat meat. Sodas are... More
