Edmonton has two Olive Garden restaurants and I visited the one closest to the West Edmonton Mall at 171 Street.

I love Italian food and was not disappointed with my experience here. I remember getting this neat gadget to let me know when our table would be ready. It took about 15 minutes to get a table at 4:45 pm in the afternoon. It is a popular spot.

They are big on wine and offer lots of great exotic drinks. The service was great too and the decor was nice as well.

Favorite Dish: My entire meal was great starting with the salad in their special dressing. The olives and hot pepper was great. The waiters put the salads together fresh there.

I will always remember the appetizer, Scilian Scampi. It was monster shrimp on bread and soaked in olive oil. I took a picture of it and uploaded it below.

Then for my main meal I had a seafood linguini in a white wine sauce: AWESOME! As far as I know they make all their pasta fresh.

I normally don't have dessert but here the menu was great and had to go for the Chocolate Mudslide Pie. It had chocolate mouse and stuff on it.

I can't beleive I ate so much but I will be going back to the Olive Garden every opportunity I get.
