The Olive Garden team of five managers, lead by Darren Lindo, are ready to provide a genuine Italian dining experience in a comfortable home-like setting. The Spanish Fork Olive Garden is the newest floor plan in the Olive Garden Brand. It is a beautiful building inside and out.

One of the staffs favorite features is the exclusive ToGo entrance. Take out guests do not need to fight the lobby crowd to get to their takeout meals. When you walk into the ToGo entrance staff ready to serve you and get your order out quickly and accurately. Don’t want to walk in at all? That is fine also. Order online and request curbside. Park in one of the five dedicated parking spots and call when you arrive and a ToGo Specialist will bring it straight to your car!

Olive Garden looks forward to serving the community in more ways than one. Olive Garden gives back to the community. For example, Olive Garden has partnered with Tabitha’s way and donates food through the Harvest Program.

To celebrate the opening, the restaurant hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony with city and restaurant officials in partnership with the Spanish Fork-Salem Chamber of Commerce.

The menu at Olive Garden continues to feature Italian favorites, such as the Lasagna Classico and unlimited Soup, Salad and Breadsticks, as well as new dishes and limited-time offers year-round. The Tastes of the Mediterranean menu celebrates the flavors and cooking styles inspired by Italy’s Mediterranean coast with dishes like Shrimp Scampi and Chicken Margherita – with all entrées coming in under 600 calories. Guests can also create their own lunch combinations with Lunch Duos, or enjoy catering delivery and ToGo options.

The new restaurant will feature an updated design with new artwork, fabrics and materials, lighting, seating, countertops and flooring, as well as a display of the new “Olive Garden Italian Kitchen” logo sign. The 7,794 square-foot restaurant will accommodate more than 200 guests and will create more than 160 new jobs for the community.
