I recommend the Chicken & Gnocchi soup with unlimited salad/bread sticks. The food is always great here, it is my absolute favorite. Out of the hundreds of times I have been here, I MIGHT have had 2 bad experiences. I highly recommend Olive Garden!

I've reviewed this restaurant before, and still feel the same about the food. It's not the best I've had, but it is always good. The last time I reviewed Olive Garden in Lafayette, I commented that the carpet had a sour smell. When we ate...More
