Yada Yada so they say Real Italian.
I have been to the Olive Garden in Sugar House area. I am sure that there are some other Olive Gardens that provide better tasting food, but I have gone there and I don't really enjoy it.
Calamari--Probably been in pre-frozen boxes as usual.
Soup--regular everyday stuff
Some of the dishes lack a good wholesome meal.
Pastas that include seafood are not worth your money, you are paying more than if you were to make it yourself.
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.
