I just discovered the Olive Garden Restaurant in Mid Valley mall. I was drawn inside by the waiter who informed us that any main dish can get free unlimited soup or House Salad. Everything is served together with grated cheese. 

I ordered the Five Cheese Ziti Pasta (RM 29.90) which is very cheesy with tiny minced meat sprinkled on top with grated cheese. The pasta is simple yet quite good. 

With this al dente pasta, we could get a free soup that comes together with soft bread. The bread is even better than the one at Dominos and Pizza Hut. The best part is also the bread is not oily. 

We could have a choice of 3 soups but of course me being the food reviewer, I tried all of them that are Pasta e Fagioli, Alfredo Chicken and Gnocchi and also Minestrone. If not for this promotion, each soup would have cost RM 11.80 per soup. The Pasta e Fagioli is a tad too salty for me with beans, onions, beef, tomato and pasta. 

Alfredo Chicken and Gnocchi soup is just normal with a bit too much cream. There are pieces of chicken and carrot inside with cream. 

The Minestrone is so delicious with no cream. There are shell type pasta inside together with capsicum, carrot, carrot. The soup is not as salty as the first one. 

I thought that every Italian place has great coffee so I ordered the Cappuccino (RM 8.90) but it turned out to be terrible that I could not even finish it. There was simply too much foam and bubbles inside and not taste of coffee at all. 

The other main dish I ordered is the Shrimp Aglio Olio (RM 28.90) which was done al dente and not even oily. There are cooked it together with capcicum cubes and has 4 big prawns. 

With this main dish, we could order the unlimited House Salad which comes served in enormous glass bowl. The salad contains fresh green salad vegetables and croutons, shredded carrots and purple cabbage. 

The Hot Chocolate looks tasty but I was not sure about the taste because I have no chance to try it. The Lipton Iced Tea (RM 9.90) was too sweet.

An atmosphere of openness,

spontaneity and generosity are genially felt as exuded by its casual yet

stylish dining experience, accentuated by artistic wall paintings gracefully

depicting the everyday life of an Italian. Awww, now it makes me wanna fly

to the city of Rom right away (=

Also do remember to sample

the homey soup made from scratch every morning, or the salubrious

house salad, comes free flow with each entrée ordered. Isn’t that a steal? Of

course, you could also go for ala carte for those of you who are currently on

diet.

A special mention to this

soup of the soul- conspicuously enticing with house recipe which comes

tantalizingly palatable but yet not overly creamy, as might be fooled by its

milky consistency. Double thumbs up!

SMOKED MOZZARELLA FONDUTA

(MYR 29.90)

Oven-baked smoked

mozzarella, provolone and parmesan cheese, served with Tuscan bread.

Coming up next to whet

your palate further is the inhouse freshly baked flatbread pizza, or more

traditionally known as Piadina.

SICILIAN PINEAPPLE (MYR

A fluffy dough base

lusciously spreaded with chicken ham, roasted red peppers and parmesan on

It appears to us that the

lasagna is tad different from what we used to see usually- slightly flatter and

toppled down. And then we were told by the helpful crew- Tony, that the lasagna

layers are freshly made hot from the stove, hence explained the softer texture

of it. True enough, “Food tastes best at its freshest”. I find myself liking

every spoon of the velvety homemade pasta together with the light chunky bites

of the minced meat, which I don’t often succumb much to it. What a delightful

nuance I must say!LASAGNA PRIMAVERA WITH

GRILLED CHICKEN (MYR 38.90)

Hand-folded lasagana

filled with spinach, bell pepper and Italian cheeses topped with a tomato-basil

sauce, grilled chicken and a creamy parmesan sauce.

Let's round up the epicurean affair with some unique blend of sweet tooth craving!

chocolate and Amaretto liquers blended with ice cream

CHOCOLATE ALMOND AMORE

(MYR 29.50)

Bailey’s Irish cream,

are unimpeachably served up, staying true to their roots of making American’s

favourite Italian restaurant, and soon to be for Malaysian too. Highly

recommended for their slurp-worhty pasta dishes as well as their pollo and

pesce selections, not forgetting their carne specialties too.

Living up to modern

American Italian carte du jours, I foresee that it’s not gonna be too long

before I return for its other inviting dishes with my enthusiastic bon vivants

too. So are you ready to be onboard yet? Me, for one, are definitely looking

forward to it and eager for more sumptuous and quality delights of Olive Garden,

especially after previous gastronomic dining at its culinary paisano too, Michelangelo’s.

“AMERICA’S FAVOURITE ITALIAN RESTAURANT WHERE OUR WARM HOSPITALITY MAKES

EVERYONE FEELS LIKE ‘WE’RE ALL FAMILY HERE’”

for now and Carpe Diem! ❤ℒℴѵℯ❤

Italian Cuisine is my favourite. I happen to came across from friend that Olive Garden just landed in Malaysia recently at Mid Valley. It seems that is originated from US. 
Anyhow, Im here for dinner tonight. Simple yet cosy ambience interior. Without exploring much about the interior, lets pay more attention to food menu, look-up for "Chef recommendation" and specialty.


If you are coming for Italian food, pizza and spaghetti are the must-eat foods. As such, I have placed order from appetizer, main course, dessert to beverages. Just waiting to be served on my dining tables. 
First, here comes the long breadstick which on complimentary for all the diners. The breaksticks are soft and warm, it goes well with balsamic vinegar and oliver oil which will be served upon request.

Tour in Italy (RM59.90), I like the name of this dish. This is a 3 in 1 combo consist of Fettucine Carborana, Lagsana and Deep fried breaded chicken chop with tomota sauce on top. Such as special conbination whereby you get to taste all three different cooking in one dish.

Italian Foods indeed cannot without pizza. Here I ordered the Mediterranean Pizza, this is because I like the Pesto Sauce, topping comprises of Capsicum, garlic, onion of cause baked with Mozzarella Cheese. It is such as good conbination of the above ingredient, this is something you can find else where at other Italian Restaurant.

Among the 3 flavour, I opted Dark Chocolate Caramel Cream. The first layer is Caramel cream, which is lighlty salted, you tougue will linger between sweet and saltyness. A twitch of the taste. Really good! It never dissappoint me!

To summarize the overall foods Olive Garden, it is an authentic Italian Food that fits into Malaysia flavours and please remember to order their dessert to complete your food journey!
