The food is amazing!! Every meal comes with complimentary salad and bread sticks which are by far the best I have ever tasted. The service is friendly and moderately fast. They do not take reservations so the seating time can be lengthy at busy times but there is a bar with tables where you can order drinks and appetizers while you wait and the entrees and desserts are definately worth the wait.
I don't think I can go wrong at Olive Garden. Every time I've been there, I have been impressed with the food. I usually get the Tour of Italy and the chicken is so tender it melts in your mouth.
When they have it, definitely go for the Never Ending Pasta Bowl. Great deal, even if you only get one bowl.
The waitresses are usually very attentive, even though my last one skimped a bit on the cheese for my meal.
Best place for salad and breadsticks.
