During a work event I decided to give this place a try since it was so close to the hotel I was staying at. The food was just average, the salad nothing special. The service however was great.

Terrible service, poor excuse for Italian food and always a wait. I don't get it! People keep going but I never will again. I make better soup and pasta at home!

The Modesto Olive Garden is being remodeled. The food and service is top notch as always. Access has not been altered so wheelchairs will not be an issue. The new seating is still roomy but did not seem as comfortable as before. Noticed there were no more drink coasters and a paper napkin on the bread sticks instead of the... More

Olive Garden has some pretty good food but portions can be rather large. In my case I cannot eat very much for medical reasons and often order off a children's menu. But that is not allowed at Olive Garden. My server spent more than 5 minutes discussing with the manager if they could make an exception but it was not... More

We visited this restaurant as it was beside the hotel where we were staying on our tour. Signs were encouraging as my wife and son have a serious gluten allergy and a separate small gluten free menu was provided. Unfortunately our waitress hadn't a clue about what gluten free meant.When questioned about items on the main menu ,which could have... More

We ate dinner here in August 2015 and were impressed by the quality of the food (I had the "Tour of Italy" main dish which was really nice) and the fantastic service we received from our waiter, who did everything he could to make our meal enjoyable. Would definitely visit here again if I was in the area.
