Nonnas Try Olive Garden for the First Time, With Mixed Results


For most, it was probably the last time too.

People of many nationalities dine in at Olive Garden.

But, ironically, you don’t often hear of Italians visiting the nationwide chain of restaurants.

Its not all bad, but the processed food, soft noodles, overly sweet sauce and endless supply of dried-out breadsticks typically don’t bode well with Italian-American palates.

These nonnas tried Olive Garden for the first time, and well, there were some mixed reactions.
