Olive Garden is a family of local restaurants focused on delighting every guest with a genuine Italian dining experience. They are proud to serve fresh, simple, delicious Italian food, complemented by a great glass of wine served in a comfortable, home like Italian setting where everyone is welcomed as family and friends. At Olive Garden, they want to offer you the experience of warmth and caring to extend beyond their restaurant walls and into every community where they live and serve. It is how they demonstrate their purpose.
Investing in their communities is one of the best investments you can make and one with an impact that will last for generations. Olive Garden restaurants in the U.S. and Canada serve their community through a variety of local efforts, such as delivering meals in times of need and sponsoring a range of charity and school events; as well as company wide programs, such as Olive Garden’s Pasta For Pennies, Pasta Tales, and Labor Day. The company has established the Darden Foundation with a mission to maintain a spirit of volunteerism, philanthropy and ethical business practices. These values were inspired by our founder Bill Darden whose vision drives all we do, within and beyond their restaurants.
Welcome to Carrabba’s Italian Grill. The legacy of founders Johnny Carrabba and Damian Mandola, along with their parents and grandparents who have created the recipes now prepared by chefs and enjoyed by a legion of fans that fill the restaurants nightly.
There is an almost imperceptible hum that comes from the methodical chopping of just delivered fresh herbs and produces used in the day’s sauces, soups and daily specials. Echoed by the soft cadence of swift steps back and forth from stove and cutting board. At Carrabba’s, there is a passion, respect and love for food prepared from scratch from recipes handed down over the generations that inspires those who love to cook and those who love to eat. This is a spirit and way of life passed down in a family who share an appreciation for wonderful food. It goes back to tradition and the pleasure of sharing a meal with family and friends.
