We called ahead for reservations and was placed on hold twice, waiting 10 minutes to talk to someone, and then were told they didn't take reservations. We arrived at 1:30 and waited about 10 minutes for a table. We were seated and waited a very long time for our drinks. And then waited a very long time before they arrived and our food order was placed. Three people out of our group of eleven ordered steak. Thirty minutes later, our waiter showed up and informed us they had run out of steak the night before, and we would have to order something else. My soup arrived lukewarm, as did my main dish. The food was good, but the service seriously lacked.
This Olive Garden is ok. Sometimes their food isn't the best but other times they are amazing. I guess it depends on the chef
Unfair opinions for a GREAT RESTAURANT otherwise go to Olive xxxxxx 5-star. if your looking for better decor and menu. We have never been disappointed and have made this a must go to place. They always have business even in tough times, that say it all. Check their other res located in Chico 5-stars.......well?
Cool atmosphere & excellent food!
Love this place. Great food, nice people, good wine, what else do you need? You can't go wrong with Calamari, Scampi, Chicken Picatta, Veal or the Seafood Caneloni. Delish!!
Authentic,excellent Italian food.You won't get any better in Chico.
Grab a slice at the walk up window on your way home from the bars...always delicious.
Awesome food, huge portions, reasonable prices. Best Caesar salad anywhere! Only downfall for me is it's located in college town, so we generally only go when college is out- Christmas & summer.
This was our fourth time here, and it gets better every time! The calamari is to die for, the best I've ever had. Its greatto order it as an appetizer then you get to enjoy some of their other wonderful items like Prawns Scampi, Chicken Piccatta and my wifes favorite, Chicken Americana. Great wine list, wonderful service. It isn't a quick in and out kind of place, everything is made to order and worth the wait. Cozy, old world feel...the Chef even came to our table and chatted with us..made us feel special. The creekside patio is really nice & romantic, but you have to request it when you make your reservation. Save room for the warm chocolate cake for dessert...Yum!
