    I just went there today, their minestrone is vegetarian so I asked if it had dairy. They said it didn’t.

    • veganeatingout

      The minestrone soup is made with unsalted butter. The ingredients are listed on the Olive Garden e-mail page (reach it by clicking the link on the bottom of the side panel at the top of this page). Additionally, I confirmed with Olive Garden who had this to say:

      Tomato sauce is free of dairy.
      Marinara sauce does have butter in it.
      Minestrone does contain butter in the mushroom base.

      Unfortunately servers are often mistaken about ingredients. That’s one reason why Vegan Eating Out exists.

        Where did it say butter? I missed that I guess.

        I really hate it when places (not saying Olive Garden but another place we went to here for ITalian) say it fine for vegetarians and then they talk to you later and say that it has chicken brother in it… GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. Also hate it when people say they are vegetarian and then say their protein source is fish… that’s not vegetarian, at most it is Pescetarian. Why put a separate name for people who eat a different type of animal?

  • veganeatingout

    The ingredients for the minestrone soup are listed on Olive Garden’s e-mail page. It does not contain chicken broth.

    probably because of the butter

  • Hey all, just a question, probably pretty dumb one, but I’m just beginning so cut me some slack. I work at the Olive Garden. Yesterday I studied our allergen guide really closely, trying to find something I could eat. I eventually gave up, until I found this site and was able to order pasta and tomato sauce. Phew, thanks. However, on the allergen guide it states that the breadsticks are dairy and egg free??? I didn’t believe it, so I didn’t eat them. I would assume the butter on the breadsticks is dairy. Could the allergen guide have been only reporting a dry breadstick?? Why else would it have reported it to have no dairy or egg??

    • James Birmingham

      My guess is the frozen breadstick before they do anything to it.

  • Juanita

    I looked at the allergen information on the Olive Garden website, which is listed as valid from 1/20/14-2/24/14. The breadsticks are listed as containing soy and wheat, but not dairy or eggs. Do you know what would make them not vegan, or is it possible they were made vegan after the time of Vegan Eating Out’s initial contact with Olive Garden? Would it be possible to double check the ingredients?

    • Jenny

      To my understanding, the breadsticks are vegan. However, after they are baked, butter and salt are added. You can ask them to bring you breadsticks that do not have butter on them. I am not aware if the recipe for the breadsticks has changed since I got that information.

    I was just at Olive Garden last night in California, with family. They had gift cards they needed to use up, or we would not have gone there. Our server was very nice and guided me through my choices. I had a decent plate of pasta (I had the bucatini, but according to their allergen guide all of the pastas on their new special “make your own pasta dish” menu are vegan) with the tomato sauce (NOT pomodoro or marinara sauce, which are both dairy). He also had the cook throw in some veggies – spinach, mushrooms, onions, and roasted garlic. It was not bad. It came with salad, which I had without croutons and with oil and vinegar. Not a great meal, but better than I expected.

    I recently came here and I asked the waitress about the breadsticks. She told me they were coated with vegetable oil, so it was vegan. It does vary, so don’t be afraid to ask.
