Olive Garden welcomed its first guests in 1982. Nearly 30 years later, Olive Garden remains committed to its purpose of Hospitaliano! - providing 100% guest delight through a genuine Italian dining experience.
Italy serves as the inspiration for the brand, from its menus to its award-winning wine list to the Tuscan farmhouse design of its restaurants. Most of all, Olive Garden is inspired by the warmth and genuine hospitality of the Italian people, as well as the importance of family in their culture.
