Touted as a traditional Italian family restaurant, Olive Garden gave East Side Mario’s some stiff competition in the 1990s when the American chain set up shop in Canada. No one seemed to care or notice, however, that the menu was amiss of many traditional Italian dishes, including veal. No matter, the décor of fake grape vines and stucco walls more than made up for their less-than-authentic dishes. Very few Olive Garden’s remain open in Canada today.
