About the Olive Garden

Olive Garden was founded in 1982 in Orlando, Florida. Although it began as part of the General Mills Company, since 1995 it has been owned by the Darden Group, which also owns Red Lobster and other chain restaurants. Olive Garden is the number one full-service Italian restaurant in the United States. Not only are the dishes the company serves inspired by Italy, the company has its own cooking school in Tuscany, Italy, which is where Olive Garden employees learn to prepare authentic Italian food.

Olive Garden Menu

Olive Garden is famous for several dishes, and they continue to develop more all of the time. Their bottomless soup and salad is among the favorite dishes that bring customers back time and again. Guests can choose from a variety of soups and they can eat as much soup and salad as they desire when ordering this combination. Breadsticks are a staple and they are served almost as soon as guests are seated.
