When in the U.S. and looking for pasta, sandwiches, and other Italian-style fare in a casual setting, the resto chain Olive Garden is a reliable choice. They’re the leading Italian restaurant chain in the United States, after all, and have close to 900 stores open around the globe.
Very soon that’ll include the Philippines as Olive Garden is heading to our shores this 2022, and they’re opening not just one branch, but two, right here in the Metro!
Here’s what you should know about Olive Garden:
Yup, Olive Garden is opening in two prime locations: first at the Mall of Asia in Pasay, followed by a second location at Glorietta 3 in Makati! The famed Italian restaurant chain’s arrival on our shores is all thanks to The Bistro Group, the same folks who brought us Denny’s, Hard Rock Cafe, and other well-loved global restaurants.
In case you’ve never been, some of Olive Garden’s signature eats include breadsticks, salads, soups, and pasta. They’re also known for their bestselling “Tour of Italy” platter with Chicken Parmigiana, Lasagna Classico, and Fettuccine Alfredo, and our fingers are crossed we’ll get to try that out soon!
Excited yet? The two branches of Olive Garden are expected to open “later this summer,” according to a statement from The Bistro Group.
