The Seattle area has many different restaurants, which serve delectable food and beverages. Every one of them has something special and unique. The attractive Mediterranean exterior of Olive Garden would fascinate everybody. Also the name of the restaurant is well related to Italy. “Olive” makes you think of the typical olive oil from Italy and “Garden” of fresh food. Olive Garden is a great place to relax, enjoy tasty food and be served efficiently.

The restaurant is situated in the South Center mall; there is a lot of parking.

The interior of the restaurant looks like a house. There is a fireplace in the middle of the room with many tables around it. Moreover, it features wooden details, yellowish walls decorated with couple of pictures, which increases a comfortable feeling. Also you don’t need to dress up; you can enjoy your meal in this untypical d├ęcor for dinner or for lunch with simplicity.

A great smell of food perfumes the restaurant when you enter. This Italian restaurant offers a menu with many different choices of pasta, antipasti, soups, salads, pizza, meat, fish and seafood. The salty and flavored breadsticks are well made with a tasty flavor. The combination of either soup or salads and pasta with seafood costs only $ 13.97 and you will probably like to have a glass of sparkling Italian wine as well for $ 7.99. However, some of the meals go from $6.75 for some antipasti to $ 21.75 for a more complete meal.

You can expect a friendly and warm welcome when you come in. The service is done by waitresses who are well-informed and professional. They can help and advice you about the choice of food. If you expect something fast, it might not be the good restaurant for you, because you might wait before the waitresses found a seat for you. But when you are seated the food would come pretty fast.

This restaurant is perfect if you want to savor a tasty authentic Italian cuisine; moreover, it’s a friendly and family place where you can come with your friends, family member or children.
