If you want fast, efficient service and friendly restaurant staff then visit Olive Garden, an Italian themed restaurant. Olive Garden is a great family restaurant.

As soon as you walk in, you are treated well. If the wait for a table is long, the workers will pass out free fresh baked garlic bread sticks to you and your family.

A waiter will take you to your table and will ask if you prefer garden fresh salad with grated cheese on top or a choice of homemade soup with warm garlic bread sticks.

Appetizers include bruschetta, lasagna fritta or you can create an Italiano sampler of two or three choices. You can choose from calamari, chicken fingers, ravioli, fried mozzarella or other great Italian appetizers.

Lunch and dinner choices include stuffed pastas like the Lasagna Rollata al Forno, which is lasagna rolls stuffed with ricotta, mozzarella, asiago, parmesan and romano cheese, topped with mozzarella and seasoned breadcrumbs, baked in five-cheese marinara. More choices range in categories of pizzas, chicken, beef and pork, and fish and seafood.

The courses are very filling, but be sure to make some room for dessert. Desserts include different varieties of cakes, cheesecakes, tiramisu, zeppolis and dolcini (which are “little dessert treats” layered with cake, mousse, pastry creams and berries).

The beverage menu includes wine, beer, specialty drinks such as margaritas and frozen drinks. Olive Garden also has a wide selection of non-alcoholic drinks from soda to coffee.

I highly recommend the Olive Garden for any occasion.
