    Casual Italian dining. We enjoyed our meal there very much. Can get very busy so be prepared to wait for a table.

    As Dawn says casual Italian. It isn't fancy but I have to admit that everything I have eaten there has been good.

    Don't be a twit like always fall for and munch the breadsticks and salad bowl and wonder why I struggle for the main course, recomend the dish "Tour of Italy"

    Here`s another vote for the Olive Garden.
    We have been to the one along US 192 several times and always enjoyed dinner there.

    Ok it`s not "fancy", but you won`t leave hungry that`s for sure.

    Darden restaurants get beaten up for not being authentic, however they are basic good choices with generally consistent quality regardless of where you are. We've had good meals and not so good meals at Dardens but they are the place of choice when we have family and friends visiting who prefer predictable food.

    We are not fans of the ones on 192 west as we've had problems in both the Olive Garden there and the Red Lobster, but many folks like those specific restaurants.

    Never been to the one in Orlando, but my parents absolutely love Olive Garden. So here's another positive vote.

    We really enjoy the Olive Garden :) we go a few times every visit, I always ask for some salad and dressing to go as well :D
