We were excited to have an Olive Garden open within three miles of our house, literally an easy bike ride, although uphill there, downhill home.
Anyway, the food has always been so-so. Pretty disappointing, but Rick is good with their spaghetti with meat sauce. I love their salad, but Rick makes much better Zuppa Toscana at home with a knock-off recipe.
They do have a chicken breast with veggies, and I can eat that meal with salad on my low-carb diet. So we go.
My favorite Italian is Dino's on West Colfax, in Lakewood, CO. But I mostly go for the homemade sausage sandwich without the bread, add a salad. I love their pizza, too, but cannot eat it anymore. Been going to that place for 50 years, since I was a little girl.
