Olive Garden’s Never Ending Pasta Bowls will cost $13.99 — 14% cheaper than one pasta dish at Olive Garden.

The Olive Garden Never Ending Pasta Bowl is an annual promotion at Olive Garden that gives customers the opportunity to order bowl after bowl of pasta accompanied by unlimited breadsticks and soup or salad — for $13.99. A standard bowl of pasta from Olive Garden can cost from $16.29 to $19.99.


The Never Ending Pasta Bowls will last from Sept. 25 to Nov. 19.

The pasta is never-ending, but the promotion will only last for eight weeks. The Never Ending Pasta Bowls will last from Sept. 25 to Nov. 19 — that’s a whole week longer than the promotion ran in 2022.

Members of the Olive Garden eClub will be able to gain access to the Never Ending Pasta Bowls a week before non-members on Sept. 18. Just make sure to sign up before Sept. 16 to get early access to this deal.

This pasta promotion is available during lunch and dinner. It’s the same price regardless of when you show up.


You cannot split a Never Ending Pasta Bowl with your table.

If you’re looking to cut costs by sharing a Never Ending Pasta Bowl, you’re out of luck. Sharing is not allowed; they’ll charge each person who’s sharing the pasta $13.99.

However, if you’ve got that sharing feeling at Olive Garden, you might consider getting one of the Olive Garden family meals. Your cost per person is *chef’s kiss*.



There are over 80 pasta combinations that you can get from the Never Ending Pasta Bowl.

If you want a pasta bowl-sized dish from Olive Garden take out, order when it’s lunchtime to get a “Lunch-Sized Favorites” for $9.99 to $10.99. Otherwise, a dinnertime pasta bowl will run you $16.29 to $19.99.


Soup, salad, breadsticks, and soda are all “Never Ending” at Olive Garden.

With every meal at Olive Garden, you’ll get endless breadsticks and soup or salad. That includes your order of Never Ending Pasta Bowls. If you decide to get a soft drink for $3.49, you’ll be able to grab unlimited refills for the duration of your visit.


There’s no news on when the Never Ending Pasta Pass might come back.

Rather than pay for the Never Ending Pasta Bowl every time you’re at Olive Garden, the restaurant used to offer a Never Ending Pasta Pass — which you’d present at every visit to get the unlimited food. The pass cost $100, which would be worth it if you planned to get Never Ending Pasta 10 times or more (back when the price was $10.99).

These were really popular and always sold out, but Olive Garden hasn’t made any indication that they’re bringing back the Never Ending Pasta Pass.
