Olive Garden: The Never Ending Pasta Bowl (Review & Giveaway)

A Little Bit About the Olive Garden and
The Never Ending Past Bowl....Back for a Limited Time
To help kick off the annual Never Ending Pasta Bowl promotion, Olive Garden conducted a national survey* to uncover America’s pasta passions. Additional findings included:


  • If given the choice to sit down to an Italian dinner with a special person like a relative, movie star, celebrated athlete or the President of the United States, among others, 47 percent of Americans would choose a family member.
  • Nearly one-fourth of Americans admitted that they wish a delicious meal would never end.
  • If choice was no longer an option when it came to pasta sauces, 74 percent of Americans would stick to meat sauce, Alfredo or marinara sauce for the rest of their lives.
  • When it comes to food, 35 percent of Americans associated Italian cuisine with generosity and abundance, more than any other type of food.
The Never Ending Pasta Bowl, available now through October 10th, offers endless servings of pasta and 40+ pasta-sauce combinations, including two new sauces. At only $8.95 per guest, it’s no wonder Olive Garden was just awarded #1 Best Value for Full Service Chains by Zagat! The promotion also comes with the restaurant’s unlimited garden salad, or soup, and breadsticks.

Our Experience
It's Back! We had the opportunity to experience the "Never Ending Pasta Bowl" on Tuesday night.....and let me just start by saying "absolutely delicious"! My husband looked like a kid on Christmas morning...and the kids were thrilled to enjoy a meal out in the warm inviting setting of Olive Garden (crayons, a coloring sheet, chocolate milk, and mac & cheese...all was right in their world!). DH started off with Fettuccine Alfredo (his absolute favorite), and then went on to sample the Spaghetti with 5 Cheese Marinara. That's the glory of the Never Ending Pasta Bowl at Olive Garden; you can try as many of their pasta / sauce combinations as you'd like for one low price......making it more than just a meal.....it's an experience.

I enjoyed my "usual" salad and breadsticks (really;no one does salad better than Olive Garden! I am in LOVE with their dressing!). It was a wonderful  night out; we had a great time enjoying great food and each other's company! 
Now if only we had room for these yummy desserts............
