Olive Garden is the poorest excuse for Italian food -- ever! I had a sampler platter and every item tasted the same - all seasoned alike and all were rather bland. I tried hard to eat them, but could get thru but 3 -4 bites from each item. I then set the platter aside. The waitress never asked why I did not finish (boy, I would have loved to have told her!). If you think their food is good, then I feel sorry for you (you have not lived till you have good Italian food). I was the guest of someone, and its a good thing, as i would have had a difficult time paying for what they call ""food"". Very bland flavors, and the food tasted like it came from cans.
