The Olive Garden has GREAT food. But, I have been there a couple of times recently and have had food still on my salad plate. It was put through the wash and you could tell because the food was hard and dried and the plate was warm. I also had a lipstick stain on my glass. So that freaked me out...but the food was still good.
I can not say enough about the food at Frankie's. It is twice as good as the "chain" restraunts at half the price. The servings are large and the atmosphere is great. Perfect for an evening meal or after church lunch. Try the sampler platter for a little of each specialty.
I can't say enough good things about the food! I love Italian. If you love it too this is the place to go. Its' a friendly and cozy place .. it still has the small "family operated" type atmosphere. Give it a try! Unless you are weird, you are gonna LOVE IT!
