Recently had company and took them to Olive Garden for dinner. They advertised a special of salad or soup, along with a main course item and a desert for $12.95.. I was totally dismayed at how skimpy the dinner was. Pasta cannot be a very expensive product to provide and must have a major markup for profit. The desert was tasty but in a small plastic cup that held no more than tree ounces.While on ocassion I will drink a cup of coffee with dinner, I'll be damned if I will pay $2.00 form a cup.
