Have You Tried Olive Garden's Four Course Festa Italiana?

If you're planning a future date night with your sweetie, why not make dinner plans for Olive Garden? Those breadsticks are just calling your name.

For a limited time, Olive Garden is offering a four course Italian meal for $12.99 a person. This is a fantastic deal for the amount of food you'll get.  Start off with unlimited soup or salad and breadsticks to delight your taste buds.  For the appetizer, choose from chicken meatballs, crispy risotto bites, or roasted garlic hummus.  If you're in the mood for fantastic pasta, you can select from 6 delicious entrees. How does asiago tortelloni with meat sauce or tri-colored penne with meat sauce sound? Don't forget about spaghetti with five cheese marinara, smoked mozzarella chicken, fettucine alfredo, or shrimp alfredo either.  Any pasta you choose will surely be delightful. 

Of course it's mandatory to end the meal with something sweet.  Make your stomach happy with dessert options like dark chocolate caramel cream, limoncello, strawberry & white chocolate, chocolate mousse, or amaretto tiramisu.  I'm drooling just thinking about the dark chocolate caramel cream!

I was able to sample the new four course menu recently.  The fresh salad and chewy breadsticks were delicious like always.  I would certainly eat my weight in breadsticks if given the opportunity.  For my appetizer, I chose the crispy risotto bites.  They were perfectly warm, crispy, and full of fantastic flavor.  The marinara sauce that accompanied the bites added an extra touch of flavor.  I was sad when I finished all of them.  

I was excited for my smoked mozzarella chicken entree with penne pasta.  When it came to the table, I knew it was time to dig in! The chicken had a nice smoked, herby flavor which I enjoyed.  There was plenty of cheese on the chicken to satisfy any cheese lover.  The chicken was perfectly cooked and tasted very fresh.  Of course I loved the penne on the side too.  It was a wonderful accompaniment to the chicken.  I couldn't have chosen a better dish if I do say so myself!

You can't leave any restaurant without dessert! It would be practically a sin to not partake.  Since it's well known that I'm a big chocolate lover, of course I chose the dark chocolate caramel cream.  The portion size was just enough to satisfy my large sweet tooth.  The dark chocolate was sweet while still having a nice bitterness to it.  I loved the chocolate combined with the caramel cream.  If you're looking for a tasty to end the night with, this one is where it's at.

Stop by Olive Garden tonight to partake in this fantastic limited time deal.  Your stomach will thank you.
