We frequent this particular Olive Garden because the service is always good, the food is delicious, the place is clean and it's close to where we live. We decided to have dinner here last Monday evening and again, nothing disappointed. However, we would like to give a very special shout-out to our server, Elyse. Elyse was one of the most friendly and attentive servers we've ever encountered. From the moment we sat down she made us feel welcome, was informative, polite and displayed the energy of, not a server, but of a good friend. And the word "no" didn't exist in her vocabulary as everything we asked for was cheerfully afforded us and with a smile. We made sure that before we left, her manager was made aware of what a great personality she had and how comfortable she made us feel while we were in her care. Thank you, Elyse, for a very memorable evening at The Olive Garden. You're the reason we'll be coming back!

I visited Olive Garden in Centereach last Thursday, November 11, Veterans' Day with my daughter, granddaughter (An Airforce Veteran) and 3 of my 4 great grandchildren. The oldest two are a bit messy, crumbs and ravioli bites on the floor and the baby 6 months old started to cry as she was hungry. The oldest, 4 1/2 decided he wanted to sit on the floor and the 18 month old got tired of sitting in his high chair just before we were ready to leave. Out waiter, Nicholas, could not have been nicer. We grownups kept apologizing for the mess, the noise, etc. and he kept saying do not worry about it, they are children, the are perfect and so on. He made us feel VERY comfortable and at ease. He is a credit to Olive Garden and it was our pleasure to have him as our waiter. And the food was great as always.

So it may not be true Italian cuisine but it is good food. My family enjoys going here mainly for the great salad and breadsticks but their entree portions are always hot and delicious.

We do not get to Olive Garden as often as I would like, but we should because I always enjoy their restaurant, the food, service and the atmosphere.

Tonight Sam was out waitress. She is such a personable person and took awesome care of our table. Her service was spot on and fast. Timing was perfect too.

We started with the giant salad bowl (yum) and their wonderful bread sticks. We ordered appetizers, fried calamari and the Fried stuffed ziti which vane with marinara dressing and alfredo dressing. They were delicious!

For dinner, we had the shrimp scampi, fettuccine alfredo and fettuccine alfrefo with shrimp. I went with my favorite, the Tour of Italy which is a chicken parm, fettuccine alfredo and lasagna.

Everything tasted delicious, hot and the prions were plenty!!! The chicken cutlet was good but they really should put the cutlet in sauce. Topped with cheese. They just seem to ladle sauce on the top and then place cheese on top. The bottom was bare, no sauce.

Dessert we had tiramisu and a chocolate dolce somthing!! This was a mini desert. The Tira Misu was delicious.

All in all, the food was delicious, tasty, nice portions and hot. Sam was a terrific waitress, next time I'm in, I'm asking for Sam.
