Traditional dishes and all -you-can-eat salad, soup and bread sticks are the draw at this upscale-casual Italian restaurant.. In Short Established in 1982, this chain gained a following for its laid-back atmosphere and generous portions. Patrons settle into comfortable booths and tables in dining rooms with plants, artwork and décor reminiscient of the villas in the Tuscan countryside. Starters include scampi, sausage or pepperoni pizza, and several soup choices, as well as a signature seafood dip (crab, shrimp, cheese and marinara). Entrees include classics like lasagna, fettuccine Alfredo and chicken parmigiana. There are also "Garden Fare" options, which promise 30 percent fewer calories.
A no frills below average italian restaurant. I would classify this as fast food style italian meals. All the mom and pop smaller restaurants are where I had the best italian meals. I am not italian but I can cook ten times better than Olive garden. If you plan on being seated right away think again. If you go here and the place is slow, you still will have a wait for whatever reason. Its not the most romantic place in the world either. Real italians laugh at this place because they know there is much better food out there.
