My partner and I are probably the biggest Olive Garden fans to exist. If you have never been to Olive Garden, you are missing out on an authentic and delicious Italian experience. I am going to be sharing my favorite drinks, appetizers and entrees from the popular restaurant.

Drinks:

Non-alcoholic-

Mixed Berry Sparkling Water- A delicious and refreshing beverage to go with any meal on the menu.

Lavazza Espresso- Delicious, but strong coffee. If you are a coffee fanatic, this is the right choice for you!

Alcoholic-

Berry Sangria- This is a nice beverage for a hot day (which still somehow happen in Missouri in October).

Porta Vita Rosato (rose)- This is a perfect glass of wine to get with the ladies after a huge shopping trip.

Moscato Berry Citrus Cocktail- The perfect blend of sparkling wine, lemon, and blueberries.

Appetizers:

Lasagna Fritta- This is by far my favorite appetizer on the menu. It is perfect for a small group of people and the flavor is to die for. These are basically little lasagna rolls and they usually win over the crowd!

Fried Mozzarella- This is exactly like a mozzarella stick, but a million times better.

Tossed Salad- This comes with unlimited bread sticks (VEGAN) when you order an entree and I could eat an entire bowl myself. They even include pepperoncinis in the salad. Win!

Entrees:

Eggplant Parmigiana- It is really hard to get eggplant to fry properly, but Olive Garden has mastered it. This is one of my favorites. It can also be made vegan if you ask for no cheese. There is pasta on the side and it comes with meatless tomato sauce.

Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo- This dish is hands down the best on the menu. I can’t even fathom how something can be this good. The steak and the balsamic vinegar make this dish perfect. Somehow, balsamic vinegar and Alfredo sauce is the best combo ever.

Tour of Italy- This is literally a tour of Italy on a dish. This includes small portions of lasagna, fettuccine Alfredo, and chicken parmigiana. Yum!
