Even though Olive Garden is a big Italian restaurant franchise, it doesn't cheapen the value of the food and the atmosphere. The Italian villa-inspired building construction and decor, black and white photography, and elegant music add to the quality of the dining experience. It's a good place to go to satisfy that craving for pasta; everything on the menu sounds good. I highly recommend asking for alfredo sauce to dip your breadsticks in--the bread's free, the sauce costs extra, but it's so worth it. If there aren't any authentic Italian eateries in your town, there's a good chance an Olive Garden is nearby.
