From dining at Olive Garden. I've always suspected this restaurant was shady. Their advertisements create the allure of inexpensive dining and fun conversation with friends and family.

Friday was a company birthday lunch and I had $12.50 to spend. I ordered the cheapest lunch for $6.95 unlimited bread sticks, soup and salad + water. I asked the waitress for a side dish of marinara sauce for the bread sticks and upon receipt of the bill learned it cost $3.95!!! So my total bill came out to $12.15 and because we split the lunch of the birthday person I had to fork over an additional $2.50 and borrow $2.00. I was so upset with myself for getting that stupid sauce. I would have had money left over!!!

Olive Garden - you have been put on notice!
