Denver / Boulder diners with an appetite for unlimited soup, salad, and breadsticks and faux-Tuscan decor head to Olive Garden, where servers clad in white button-downs and ties pour glasses of chianti and pinot grigio alongside cheese-smothered dishes of bruschetta, Sicilian meatballs, chicken marsala, and parmesan-crusted steak. With more than 750 locations across the globe, the Italian-American chain was recently the recipient of a flood of free publicity when a review of its Grand Forks, North Dakota location by local food critic Marilyn Hagerty went viral in a major way; Hagerty championed the chicken Alfredo and "Tuscan farmhouse" interior, proclaiming it "the largest and most beautiful restaurant in town." Whether your neighborhood Olive Garden deserves such praise we can't say, but we know you'll find it fast on Voice Places.
