Health Tips:

  • Appetizers – A breadstick contains 140 calories, two and a half grams of fat, and 460mg of sodium. Pairing the selection with marinara dipping sauce adds 90 more calories, five more grams of fat, and 480mg of sodium. For individuals unconcerned about caloric intake, the lasagna fritta offers 1,070 calories, 71 grams of fat, and 1,650mg of sodium.
  • Lunch – A simple, classic Italian dish of spaghetti with meat sauce in a mini pasta bowl contains 280 calories, nine grams of fat, and 390mg of sodium. When paired with a small Coca-Cola, daytime diners add 150 calories and 39mg of sodium. To complete meals, customers often add small, fresh-brewed ice teas, chicken and gnocchi soups, and a piece of strawberry and white chocolate cake bringing the total visit to 1,130 calories.
  • Dinner – Customers build pasta bowls with six different specialty pastas, five homemade sauces, and six types of toppings. The tri-colored vegetable pasta with five-cheese marinara and three meatballs contains 1,200 calories, 65 and a half grams of fat, and 1,675mg of sodium. Patrons often pair the meals with glasses of sparkling wine for 130 calories or a specialty beer for 220 calories more.
  • Desserts – If visitors top the meals with tiramisu desserts, the diners should expect about 470 calories, 27 grams of fat, and 120mg of sodium.
  • Kids – Cheese ravioli boasts 340 calories, 16 grams of fat, and 990mg of sodium, while chicken fingers and pasta contains 390 calories, 16 grams of fat, and 730mg of sodium. Children may select sides of grapes with 40 calories, or steamed broccoli with 20 calories.
  • Diets – Customers with gluten sensitivities entertain specific menu options like salads, entrees, and kid meals. The house salad without croutons stands as a potential selection with 110 calories and nine grams of fat. Dinners and lunches like rotini with marinara and steak toscano also remain available to such individuals. Both vegetarians and vegans receive suggestions based on fish, milk, and egg consumption or lack thereof. Vegans enjoy breadsticks, steamed broccoli, an array of pastas like bucatini and ziti, and the kid’s tomato sauce. On the other hand, vegetarians possess many more options like artichoke fritti, Mediterranean flatbread, roasted tomato caprese salad topper, eggplant parmigiana, and five-cheese ziti al forno.

    This information made me not want to eat at Olive Garden again. You have low calorie options but no low sodium options. Why would grilled salmon be 760mgs of sodium? Salads over 1700mg sodium?

  2. whitney pierce says:

    This is great but can you add the carb counts too please

  3. Carol Perry says:

    The amount of carbs in your Garden Salad seem kind of high. Could you tell me what items (that I could possibly eliminate) would lower the carb count?

  4. Donna Milovitch says:

    Why are the salads so high in calories? Can the large shared salads come without dressing? Also its time to tone down the salt. You would regain a lot of customers if you offered sodium reduced items

  5. Regina Story says:

    From a heart condition — I am now on a low sodium diet. Since Olive Garden is one of our favorite places to eat, I am horrified at all the high sodium. Why so much in your salad? Help! I don’t want to give up on Olive Garden!!!

  6. Deb says:

    I would love to see more healthy, low carb, low sodium, items offered on the menu. This would give more choices for people with Diabetes, Heart Diseases, and other health conditions. My family and I love OLIVE GARDEN, however, without more healthy options our visits are fewer now.

  7. Dorothy Suchy says:

    We like Olive Garden but your sodium content is extremely high. I guess I have to find a new place to go for lunch.

  8. Nancy Simmons says:

    I am on a restricted sodium diet and need to order accordingly when I eat out but Olive Gardens food is just too high in sodium so would it be possible for a menu for folks like me on this kind of foods. I have always enjoyed eating at Olive Gardens but may not be able to go there anymore.

  9. Gerry Slemp says:

    I am on a very low sodium diet. It really helps that you have this nutrition schedule so I can be careful when eating out. After all, that is a very big part of our American social life. People like me will not feel ostracized since we can pick and choose from your nutrition list. Thank you.
