The Olive Garden Pasta Pass is coming back for 9 weeks of unlimited pasta.
Last year, 24,000 Olive Garden Unlimited Pasta Passes were sold for $100.00 apiece. This year, there’ll be 23,000 available that will give you access to free pasta for nine weeks, September 23, 2019 through November 24, 2019. The cost? $100.00.
For the first time, Olive Garden will also be offering 50 Lifetime Unlimited Pasta Passes for $400.00.
This year, the Olive Garden Pasta Pass is available August 15th at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time — waiting rooms to buy the passes open at 1:55 p.m. ET.
Go five times a week and save about $400.00 on meals.
Never Ending Pasta Bowls start at $10.99, so if you visit five times a week during the nine weeks, you’ll save almost $400.00. Or, if you go every day and stock up on leftovers to freeze for future meals, you could save just under $600.00. Don’t forget that you’ll still need to pay gratuity, so that will factor in about $2.00 per plate.
If you get a Lifetime Olive Garden Never Ending Pasta Pass you’ll have to eat at Olive Garden at least 37 times to break even.
Both Olive Garden Pasta Passes can only be used for dine-in orders.
The fine print on both Olive Garden Pasta Passes states that they’re only to be used by the name printed on the pass and can’t be used for to-go or online orders.
The passes don’t include gratuity, alcohol or any other entrees besides the Never Ending Pasta Bowl meals.
The Never Ending Pasta Bowl menu is pretty impressive for the price.
You can choose from seven types of pasta, five types of sauce and six different toppings.
- Angel Hair
- Gluten-free Rotini
- Whole Grain Linguine
- Creamy Mushroom
- Traditional Marinara
- Five Cheese Marinara
- Traditional Meat Sauce
- Garden Veggies
- Italian Sausage
- Crispy Chicken Fritta
- Grilled Chicken
- Crispy Shrimp Fritta
Fill up on endless soup, salad and breadsticks and take leftover pasta home for another meal.
It pays to order another bowl of pasta if you’re on the fence about it. Eat what you can and then ask for a box to take leftovers home.
Endless breadsticks, soup and salad also come with your pasta so fill up on those if you can. Load up your to-go boxes with the rest of your meal and freeze it. (HINT: Now’s a great time to stock up on freezer meals if you have busy weeks coming up!)
Last year, Olive Garden Pasta Passes sold out in under a minute — move fast.
If you want one of the Olive Garden Unlimited Pasta Passes, be sure to set an alarm. Last year all 23,000 passes were sold in just under a minute.
Something new is coming this year and Olive Garden is dropping clues all over social media.
Olive Garden has been hinting at something new coming this year with the Unlimited Pasta Passes, but aren’t revealing whether people have guessed correctly or not. Some of these guesses include the possibility of winning a trip to Italy or introducing a family pasta pass.
