About as Italian as Millie's Burger's – Hello friend. If you enjoy eating at a so called Italian restaurant where there is NOTHING on the menu that is real Italian, then this is the restaurant for you. No anchovies, no sardines, no swordfish meatballs, no Risotto, absolutely nothing that is real Italian. It's entertaining to watch the large, uneducated L.D.S. population drink soda pop with their pasta but entertainment does not satisfy one's hunger. I would rather swim a river of snot then waste my time here. I recommend that you go to Millie's Burgers and take along a C.D. player with the music of Dean Martin. The effect will be the same and you won't empty your pocketbook.
Amazingly good service – I have been to plenty of Olive Gardens throughout the United States. While there doesn't seem to be any mentionable difference in the degree of food quality, in my opinion, there was, this time, a definite degree in quality of service. This particular location in downtown Salt Lake City has staff that seem to actually care about the customers. When asked, our server gave us her favorite sauces [for the "unending bowl of pasta" meal] and also stopped by the table a few times to make sure that we had everything we needed and that the food was meeting our expectations. I always love the zuppa toscana and the breadsticks. If you are concerned, however, about calories, this might not be the choice of restaurant for you. Overall, a very good eating experience.
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.
Perfection – I loved Olive Garden, the service was great. I am a teenager and I felt they didn't take advantage of me. I would recommend Olive Garden over any other place!
I lived in Italy... – I lived in Italy and the Olive Garden does a pretty good job of providing fresh authentic meals. You can't expect a major chain to be the absolute best Italian restaurant but OG does a good job.
Some of my favorite dishes are tortelloni di fizzano, the mushroom-filled ravioli, and the chicken vino bianco. The salad is really good too.
In short, you can't expect OG to be as authentic as say, La Dolce Vita or Dal Fornello (both in Provo) but it is a good place for a group of people to have some tasty Italian food. It's a lot better than Tucci's in my opinion.
Mediocre Italian – The Olive Garden is, in one word, Mediocre. It is just another chain restaurant with so so food. The salad is good....yes. Can I make salad at home? Yes. The sauces are not fresh tasting. The Capellini Pomodoro always has 1/2 ripe tomatoes, and very little flavor. Do yourself a favor and discover some of the great locally owned businesses that serve Italian. Al Forno's is my #1 recommendation. Support your local businesses and get better food than any CHAIN restaurant could provide.
BORING – I ORDERED A STEAK AND IT TOOK UNTIL EVERY ONE ELSES DESERT, THE MANAGER SAID THEY DONT MAKE GOOD STEAKS I LAUGHED AND AGREED THEY ARE HORRIBLE AND THEIR OTHER STUFF HAS GONE DOWN HILL GO SOMEWHERE NICE AND GOOD NOT HERE
Okay, If you don't think of it as Italia – What is this???? Okay, so the ambience is pretty Italian, the wine is pretty Italian, but the pasta?? Overcooked, over-sauced, and the saucves all taste pre-packaged. I can tell you what Nona would say... "Disgraccioso!"
Always good. – When you want food you know is going to be good the Olive Garden is the place to go. Their soup and salad are always the best.
