Olive Garden is a far cry from being authentic Italian cuisine. But that doesn’t mean we aren’t Italian. We’re just a new type of Italian. And despite what people say about us, they can’t deny that breaking tradition paid off. Because this stuff is delicious.
Olive Garden launches an in-restaurant experience to surprise loyal diners with the opportunity to get a commissioned renaissance style painting. We'll partner with Kehinde Wiley Studios, an artist famously known for taking traditional renaissance motifs and giving them new meaning with modern commentary . The painting will feature guests holding their favorite Olive Garden meals.
A collaboration between Olive Garden and Italian DJ Benny Benassi to remix some of the most famous songs by Italian and Italian American artists. Electronic music wasn’t around back then and isn’t really considered Italian, but it could put an exciting twist on the music anyways.
