It's a chain restaruant, expected fresh salad: check. Expected decently prepared pasta: check. Expected fresh bread: check. Expected Italian comfort food: check.

The service was great as was the salad and fresh bread sticks. However I would certainly not recommend the lobster stuffed pasta as it was much too rich and too cheesy and I could not taste the lobster.

This is an Italian Food Chain restaurant. As far as Italian food is concerned it is average, but you won't get a bad meal here. You will always come out filled due to their unlimited bread sticks and salad. If you want great Italian food...More

We hadn’t been to an Olive Garden in many years and were very pleasantly surprised at this one. Very good food, house wine and an excellent staff. We had the chicken carbonara which was very good and plentiful.

I can't figure out what people see in this place. Their portions are small, selection of meals is weak. Food is edible but yeah, you better fill up bread .

Had a great lunch with kids. Fair price and lunch special was fantastic and filling. Andrew in the bar was friendly and patient. Four star because this is the second time I've been here and the restroom smelled strongly of urine. Gotta fix that...

Just visited an Olive Garden twice while home in NY state in August. Both times had service and food issues. I seriously don't know why I bother going anymore. I always get soup and salad but can get that most anywhere.
