We enjoy Olive Garden when we are on the east side of Lima. On March 27, after a fine meal with awesome salad and great breadsticks, my wife, Paula, decided I should get a bottle of salad dressing for our 17 year old daughter's Easter basket. I was walking past the manager, he picked up a bottle and we headed... More

Ok TripAdvisor family let me tell you about my very recent (just left there) trip to this Olive Garden. When we arrived we were seated immediately and handed our menu's.

Ordered from the bar. Planned on eating in but changed my mind a few minutes later after a long day of work. Bartender changed my order to go and was very pleasant and continued to pour ice water during my wait.

Food was fantastic, service not so much. Friendly but not efficient. It was New Year's Eve, but the place wasn't packed. I kept having to ask for my wine and my husband ever did receive the Coke refill he requested. We ordered an appetizer that we never received. Was going to order dessert, but figured we would still be there... More

Had not been to Olive Garden in probably 10 years. It was much better than I expected. The three of us shared 3 different meals all except spicy chicken appetizer were good. Endless garlic bread was best part.

This is a great Italian restaurant chain. Their dishes are expertly prepared. Their endless salad and bread sticks are a hit also. I have even had their pizza which is truly different than the norm.

Great place for a group lunch. The all you can eat pasta was good, but there is always a limit to how much you can actually eat. The service was very good. As for the food it more on quantity over quality.

Was in Lima with special someone and decided to go here for dinner on a Saturday about 5pm. It was slightly busy but we got seated quickly. The food was pretty good and server checked on us several times which was nice. I would go back if in the area but was just a visit.

Thank myvacationplan
