i hadn't been to olive garden in the past 10 years. my son is a pasta lover so i thought we'd try it. all i remember from way back is that the bread sticks and salad are good.. and that is still true. i had a horrible soup that was inedible, i told the waitress, and she said ""oh sorry!"" . When my son's entree came it was barely edible. We asked for a little marinara to dip our breadsticks in, out came this giant dish with and additional $3 charge. When the bill came, my awful soup was still on there, i was so annoyed. they really don't care what you think. if you like tasteless food, with no fresh herbs, and management that doesn't care what you think, this is your place. i will never go back again, i wonder why they are always so crowded, don't people care about quality at all?
