This is the first occasion that we had to use the on-line take-out ordering, and it seemed to work really well. We knew it would be crazy busy on a Friday night, (it was) and we didn't want to pack up all the kids and fight the crowds. Ordering on line was great! If there were options with the meal,... More

Our food arrived in a timely manner and the temperature was just right. The do-it-yourself pasta is wonderful, especially the angel hair pasta, five cheese marinara and Italian sausage. Nicole did a fabulous job! :)

Like always the soup and salad did the trick. The service was good for a busy night at Olive Garden. I was looking for a healthy dinner and this was the place for me.
