A chain restaurant will always act, behave, feel and taste like a chain restaurant. Olive Garden is no different. I was going to one after a long gap, but nothing much has changed. The menu is very confusing. Prices are reasonable. The crowd comes from...More

This is a new menu from Olive Garden. I just tried because I like a grilled chicken. It cooked with chicken breast and well combined with tomato. Especially, a grilled zucchini was so great. Our table server provided a great service for us.

What can I say, great service, Great food and plenty of it. Price is always a little high but owell you get what you pay for. The Spaghetti and the Alfredo sauce is be best.
