I've visited many Olive Gardens but this cite by far has the best service, food, and quality! When I first walked in I was immediately welcomed by the staff, after being seated my server was very attentive. In other restaurants I've noticed the food is a bit dry and dull but this place give the food every ounce of flavor... More

Resturant was very clean and the food was excellent. Our waitress was extremely nice and right in time. Seating was a little slow with no one there. Lady seating us let us know know one knew what they was doing..

The salad here is great! The soup & salad lunch is a great price and is very tasty! The pastas that I've eaten have been great as well although a little on the expensive for a pasta style chain.
