Anyone Love The Olive Garden (Resturaunt)

Thu Aug 03, 2006 12:51 am

Whilst in tampa last friday, Myself and a group of friends after we'd been to Busch Gardens decided to visit the Olive Garden for dinner.

I must say, it was some of the best italian food i've ever eaten. Their bread sticks & salad ROCKS!

I also had Shrimp Pasta (Forgotten the italian name) which was delicious...

Who else eats there? What do you normally order?

I highly reccomend it..!

The Olive Garden is to Italian food what Paris Hilton is to music.

A gross travesty.

It is pretty good, but in Cleveland, there is better food at this little place called Mama Santa's... Really cheap and really good. Nothing can match their pizza!

I know their a chain, but have you been to a Bucca di Beppo (Lakewood or Strongsville)? Romano's Macaroni Grill is good, too.

Last time I dined at the local Olive Garden (2 years ago) there was a porn producer negotiating with a Madam for girls to use in his film. "All my girls are clean!"...she says. The salad is delicious says I!

Let's be realistic, you get what you pay for. For around $12 a plate Olive Garden has great Italian food for that price, and if you want something more authentic and 'better' then be ready to fork out some more money.

To answer the question you originally asked Kaddyuk - after eating at Olive Garden last night and ordering the sald and breadsticks, stuffed mushrooms, and the stuffed chicken marsale I would say that it was great. Mind you after living in Europe for two years and having the true Itilian experience I'm partial to the real thing but for what you pay for it's a great meal.

I just read your profile, so I know you have a sense of humor.

I must assume that this post was made in jest.

I have eaten things off the floor that taste better than the food that they serve in the Olive Garden. I thought I knew Italian food because I had gone to "really good" Italian restaraunts. Then I met my future wife, Ms. Damiano, and sat down at a dinner table to eat a meal prepared by her Mother and Aunt.

Good God, the food is so incredible it makes you want to hurt yourself.

Agreed. My wife refuses to eat there so I've never had the 'pleasure'. I think spending time growing up in Italy makes you realise how shite places like Olive Garden are....

Kaddyuk, did you realise the food isn't actually cooked on site. One of my wife's cousins used to work at one in PA and said the food arrived on a truck having been made and then frozen in a factory. Not quite wholesome cuisine now is it?   I believe Red Lobster (owned by the same company as Olive Garden) and another big crappy chain place creates their food in a similar manner. My wife even get's grossed out at the TV adverts from these places  biggrin 

I have been to Carrabba's Italian Grill and have been to Romano's Macaroni Grill a couple of times and it wasn't too bad. Although probably not authentic Italian cuisine by a long stretch it certainly wasn't the completely faux authentic Italian, cooked and frozen in Kentucky then shipped 700 miles experience of Olive Garden.

Frankly, I don't give a sh*t if the food is authentic or not. If I like it, then I like it. I tend to usually get the chicken parm at the Olive Garden (though I don't go there very often).

Buca di Beppo is also very good. Great place to go with like 10 people.

Of course, I also like to actually try authentic ethnic food.

I've gotta get into the North End in Boston one of these days and sample some of the restaurants.

I really dislike the food at the Olive Garden. It tastes fairly bad and is ridiculously overpriced. Even if I wasn't paying, I'd rather go to Fazolis any day, and it's not like they're a gourmet outfit either!

Macaroni Grill isn't too bad, seems to be about the same price as Olive Garden and the food is considerably better (although still nothing to brag about).

The ads showing a group of multi-racial beautiful yuppies natter on about what culinary creation they're about to devour at the Olive Garden makes me hurl.

You're a lot better off just grabbing a slice of Pizza or a calzone from any one of 500 New York street corner pizza parlors, where the pizza (and the calzone) are as real as they get (this does not, however, include Pizza Hut, Dominos, or other similar places that sully the culinary perfection that is the pizza).

There are places in the US where you can get 'more authentic' Italian food for about the same price, if not less, than what you pay at Olive Garden. Don't forget, you have to pay for a lot of corporate overhead in your food when you go to chain restaurants. This overhead doesn't exists in small establishments.

I'll go to the Garden if I'm strapped for cash, simply because you can load up on the breadsticks and salad. Beyond that the food is mediocre...

Olive Garden rocks... they obviously mix cocaine into their salad and breadsticks because man, you just can't get enough!

The Italian Feast is the best dish... 3 choices... mmm chicken parm... *drool*

They need another location in Calgary... one restaurant for 1,000,000 people means waiting for 60-90 minutes before you're seated... pretty much every night. It has been like that for 6 years in Calgary too... you'd think they actually open another location!

Eww olive garden, I'll pass !

You came to the land of many restaurants and some pretty fantastic food and even from your other thread (the I hate Orlando one, you had breakfast at dennys !) you ate at some shitty places. Shame.

A good Italian near Orlando; good bigger chain is Brio ! You'll find one at the Mall At Millenia off I-4 on Conroy. Quite busy at lunch times and more than likely dinner times as well.

Something a bit smaller I'd say perhaps Antonio's in Celebration, simply superb.

I wouldn't say I LOVE to eat there, but I do enjoy Manicotti and it's one of the only places around me that I know of that serves it.

Plus, I got an ex that works at the one 4 miles away so I'm always getting hooked up on stuff.

Can't beat the $5.95 soup/salad/breadstick lunch either.

This is so incredibly dead on true!

As one other person has mentioned, Romano's is much better for chain Italian. I generally avoid chains for any kind of ethnic food although I have to admit that I really like Johnny Carino's. Unlike Olive Garden they are not afraid to lay some spice on you - family style service as an option is more fun and economical for large groups as well.

The North End is pretty lousy nowadays. Good Italian food has gone mainstream and moved out of the North End, and most of the restaurants left there are of the bad marinara sauce and over-cooked ziti variety. Even the Canollis are bad (probably made in China and shipped over).

But here in DC, we have an amazing little Italian place in Adams Morgan called Pasta Mia. It seats only about 40, and the line is round the block to get in at about 5:30 pm. Its run by an Italian Grandma who shuts shop every summer and goes back to the old country, but when she's here, she cooks up pasta and sauces that are addictive. She's a mean ol' coot, but the food is spectacular.

Olive Garden and "Italian Restaurant" are not synonymous regardless of what their sign says. One evening last year I was in the mood for an Italian dinner. Having never been to an Olive Garden, I took their claim to be an Italian restaurant as fact and headed to the one located in Orange (CA). I should tell you I grew up on Italian food...real Italian food. Both my parents were born in Italy and came over when they were in their teens. I would wake up to the smell of spaghetti sauce simmering on a Sunday morning at 8am. The meal at Olive Garden was mediocre at best (how hard is it to get linguini and white clam sauce right?). However, the final straw was when it came time to order dessert. Everyone else in our party (there were 6 of us) was too full to have dessert but I had had my heart set on having a cannoli and a cup of coffee. But when I asked the waiter for a cannoli, I got a blank look. "A what?", he asked. Thinking he just hadn't heard me, I repeated, "A cannoli". Another blank stare followed by, "I don't know what that is....I don't think we have that". I thought he was joking and said, "C'mon". This time, with a hint of indignation, he said "Sir, I really don't know what that is and I know we don't offer it. Can I bring you something else"? I told him to never mind and asked him to bring the check. A short time later, the manager came over with our check. He said he had heard that I had requested a "special dessert" that they didn't carry and he wanted to, not only apologize, but to let me know he was deducting 10% off our bill. He then asked what exactly I had requested so that perhaps steps could be taken so they could provide it in the future. "Oh, it wasn't anything special, I just wanted a cannoli" I responded, thinking maybe they were out of them or didn't have any made or something along those lines. He said, "A cannoli? I've never heard of that. What is it"? I explained that it was an Italian pastry and gave him a brief description and he had no idea what I was talking about. Needless to say, there haven't been any trips back to, "The Olive Garden, An Italian Restaurant" since. And I just checked their website and they still don't offer cannoli's for dessert.
