I completely Agree, Edo's is our favorite Italian Style Spot, I heard the Olive Garden meals are 80% frozen and pre packaged, Can anyone back this info??

REALLY??????? I went there ONCE, the first thing that should have clued me in was the fact that it was an Italian & Greek restaurant. Seems to be the thing to do here in VA so ok, the waitress came to the table with some (what appeared to be) Store bought dinner rolls, airy and doughy. And also the interior was nice and the wait staff was polite, On the scale of 1-10 I'd give it a 4, I've had worse and maybe it's from being an Italian or growing up in the Northeast were theres alot more of us.....but that place got a long way to go to call themselves an Italian restaurant!
