Their minestrone and salad are da bomb! And consistently good. Can't say that for every restaurant.. Good ravioli, too.

Olive Garden uis part of a chain of Italian restaurants. If you don't have one in your ar, you probably aren't looking, but it is a good family restaurant. Not Spectacular, but solid good.

The food & service are always excellent. My one complaint is the long wait time for a table. This could be alleviated by more locations being built, especially in the 290 area.

Like most Olive Gardens I've been to, the food just isn't that great. The sauce lacks flavor and the pasta is overcooked. My husband had the spaghetti and meatballs, and the meatballs were really lacking in flavor. I might be biased because I make my italian food from scratch.I just think it is over-priced for the type of food you... More

Most of the food is pretty good, some very good. My favorite is the salad, with pasta fagoli (sp?) soup, and bread sticks. Yum!

I have eaten here twice in the last few months and each time the service is not so great. I love the salad but you almost have to beg for more.
