Olive Garden
I've always been a fan of Olive Garden. Not only do I love Italian cuisine, I like the atmosphere in this restaurant. It is always nice and warm, and the staff has always been approachable and friendly during my visits.    I'd have to say that my favorite dish served at the Olive Garden would be their Steak Gorgonzola-Alfredo: Grilled beef medallions drizzled with balsamic glaze, served over fettuccine tossed with spinach and gorgonzola-alfredo sauce.

I'll just admit it. Before I went to Italy for the first time, I thought Olive Garden was authentic Italian food. Then I went to Florence and Pisa for a few days back in high school, and yeah...

About this restaurant


Olive Garden is a casual, Italian-style chain of restaurants owned and operated by Darden Restaurants, the same company that owns Red Lobster. The first Olive Garden was opened in 1982 in Orlando, Florida, and by 2008 there were 657 throughout much of the US and several cities in Canada.

Many critics have challenged the authenticity of Olive Garden's Italian cuisine, citing the absence of cold-cut antipasto dishes and veal from the menu, both signatures of traditional Italian meals. However, many restaurants are nonetheless decorated with a rustic Italian theme.
