Traditional dishes and all -you-can-eat salad, soup and bread sticks are the draw at this upscale-casual Italian restaurant. – In Short
Established in 1982, this chain gained a following for its laid-back atmosphere and generous portions. Patrons settle into comfortable booths and tables in dining rooms with plants, artwork and décor reminiscient of the villas in the Tuscan countryside. Starters include scampi, sausage or pepperoni pizza, and several soup choices, as well as a signature seafood dip (crab, shrimp, cheese and marinara). Entrees include classics like lasagna, fettuccine Alfredo and chicken parmigiana. There are also "Garden Fare" options, which promise 30 percent fewer calories.
Not the only option – I used to think Olive Garden was the place to go for Italian. The last time I was there I had the chicken marsala and was very disapointed. That's when I started trying other places and found out I had better options when it came to Italian.
Addictive – Olive Garden food is wonderful. I usually eat the soup and salad. I love the zuppa tuscana potato soup. I actually crave it. i have to go 2 or 3 times a week. I never get tired of it. My husband also likes it. He may eat different plates each time. He likes to try everything. It is all good. We never have to wait long for our food and even if there is a line when we get there it's not long before we can get in. You can always find parking close in mall parking lot if restaurant lot is full.
