Olive Garden Adds New 'Giant Classics' to the Menu Including an 11-Inch Chicken Parm
Shockingly, this is not an April Fools Day joke.
If you thought Olive Garden already had generous portions, think again.
The chain’s newest promotion, the Giant Italian Classics menu, offers guests larger-than-life servings of four favorite Olive Garden dishes, each starting at $12.99. No, this is not an April Fool’s Day joke—it’s just a really great start to the month.
The four dishes being made massive for this promotion include the 12 oz. Giant Meatball with Spaghetti, which comes topped with meat sauce; the 11½ inch-long Giant Chicken Parmigiana, which is served with fettuccine alfredo; the Giant Four-Cheese Stuffed Shells, which come with marinara, alfredo and toasted breadcrumbs; and the Giant Stuffed Shells with Shrimp, which arrives smothered in alfredo sauce and chopped, seasoned tomatoes.
“Olive Garden is known for its generously-portioned, craveable Italian food at a strong value – with unlimited salad or homemade soup and breadsticks served with every meal,” Jennifer Arguello, Executive Vice President of Marketing at Olive Garden, said in a press release. “And we regularly hear how much our guests love our timeless dishes like Chicken Parmigiana and our classic meatballs. So, in the spirit of Italian generosity, we’re serving up them up BIGGER than ever before with the introduction of Giant Italian Classics.”

As if you weren’t already going to leave full enough, the $12.99 price tag on the giant dishes also includes the classic unlimited breadsticks and soup or salad, so you may never need to eat again for the rest of your life.
Hungry yet? The promotion has already begun, but it’s only on for a limited time—until May 27 to be exact. You can gather up the family and share a couple of these mega-sized meals, but no judgements if you choose to attempt crushing them all by yourself. Takeout containers were made for a reason!
