Right from the beginning this was a great dining experience. We had a bit of a wait for a table, however we enjoyed a 1/2 price glass of wine while we waited. Nice touch. The place was packed but the service was service was really good and the food came quickly. Our server took great care of us!

The food is like most other Olive Gardens but the service is a bit better. It was teh first time I tried the stuffed Chicken Marsala. It was very good but I still like the regular chicken marsala more. Althouhg the mashed garlic parmesan cheese mashed potatos that come with the stuffed version is a better side.

Get here early as there is always a large line down the hallway from both mall entrances to the restaurant. Visited last in August 2015. Dined inside in the smaller dining area near the restroom.

However, we always recalled that the service and food were solid and good - typical of an Olive Garden. Here's the Pros: Our recent return visit... More

On a family shopping trip to the mall, we stopped in for lunch. Very convenient, located in the center of the mall. Food was good, and the soup and bread special is a great way to go for a light lunch. We had the Minestrone soup, and it was quite good!
