Olive Garden is a chain. Plain and simple. If you want inoffensive food that resembles Italian, fine. But my advice is to go for something more original. Either a locally owned, family place, or a place that uses family recipes. I prefer my food with more personality than you get at Olive Garden. It's not terrible, but it's not good.
Locally owned, fantastic food, lovely service. What more can you ask? This restaurant is owned by a man whose family can only be described as Tucson restaurant royalty (here's a hint: his last name is Scordato), and it shows.
