Olive Garden’s Culinary Institute of Tuscany, located in the heart of Tuscany, Italy, in a restored 11th century village, is where Olive Garden’s chefs learn the secrets of the Italian-style cooking featured at Olive Garden restaurants. Of course, some of the main draws at the Olive Garden are the unlimited salad and bread sticks. Moving behind the basics, the pasta e fagioli soup is remarkably homemade-tasting and the grilled chicken Caesar salad is always good. Classic staples of Olive Garden dining include the uber-popular fettuccine Alfredo, eggplant parmigiana, lasagna "Classico," five-cheese ziti and, of course, spaghetti and meatballs. For something a bit off the beaten path, try the pork Milanese, Chianti-braised short ribs, or seafood Portofino.
