Went about 5 pm We were hot and tired after day of sightseeing. It was quiet, cool place - right across street from our hotel, Homewood Suites. We both had good meals. My eggplant parmesan was very good. Very good, friendly waitress. Tiramisu was excellent.

Good food as always, service was ok, waitress was friendly but our food took too long considering it was soup and salads. It's always good to eat at the Olive Garden.
