    About Us

    Our Story
    Italy is the inspiration behind our restaurants, from the ingredients we use to our award-winning wine list. Most of all, we are inspired by the Italian culture - warmth, genuine hospitality and the importance placed on family.

    Our passion for Italy led us to establish both the Olive Garden Culinary Institute of Tuscany, located on the grounds of the Rocca delle Macie, and the Italian Chef Council, a group of chefs based in Italy who meet and collaborate with the Olive Garden executive chefs. To further demonstrate our commitment to Italy, we send a select group of employees each year to the Culinary Institute to become immersed in the culture, gain inspiration and learn the fundamentals of Italian cooking. To date, more than 1200 Olive Garden team members have traveled to Tuscany to participate in this experience.

    Our Community Outreach

    Our restaurants throughout the U.S. and Canada serve their communities through a variety of local efforts, such as delivering meals in times of need and sponsoring a range of charity and school events.
