Friday night eaters should prepare for a wait. But service was effective once we were seated. Chain is currently offering "A Taste of Italy" where smaller portions of several entrees are served. Plenty of soup or salad (as well as breadsticks) are offered as usual.

The Olive Garden is one of my favorite places to eat. All of their selections are well prepared and they give you plenty. I also love the salad and breadsticks. Great place to eat and reasonably priced.
