From Orlando heading to Cocoa on rush hour routing Colonial Drive? Forget about it! You will definitely want to get out from the traffic. We found a way to avoid the traffic. We had to pass the awesome neighborhood in Waterford Lakes to avoid the traffic but last week, we were so famished and it was already lunch time. Traffic was backed-up due to accident so; we decided to stop by at Olive Garden. I ordered a thirsty-quenching limonata while hubby on his usual soda.
11882 E Colonial Drive
Orlando, FL 32826
The ambiance was good. The service was great though, my limonata was served late. The server forgot about it but, she apologized. It was a busy day so; it happens. I ordered my soup which comes in the meal I selected. My favorite is Chicken and Gnocchi which is a creamy soup made with roasted chicken, traditional Italian dumplings and spinach. Now, I am craving for one.
My main order was Braised Beef and Tortelloni. First time that I ordered this and not bad at all. It is a tender sliced short ribs and portobello mushrooms tossed with asiago-filled tortelloni in a basil-marsala sauce. If you have a great appetite and famished, the portion is a bit small and you might have a room for another soup. Anyway, I will try this again in Olive Garden along Florida Mall area and I can tell the difference.
