I am 60 years old ...... and don't mind being carded or asked, but at Olive Garden they want to take your ID to 'the back' to scan !!! Never encountered this ... I will not give my ID (and later my credit card) to be scanned for buying a beer !! Who knows what's going on 'in the back'? Too much fraud going on in this world... My wife and I stood up and left and went to the restaurant next door .... No problems there ... Watch out, this may be a scan scam !!
This is by far my favorite restaurant by far, if you're an Italian food lover like me! Just be sure to NOT sit near the bar because it's way to noisy! Ask for a booth. If you're not sure what to have, go with the "Tour of Italy"! It's a little pricey, but worth every dime!
