Olive Garden Rewards Early Diners With Special Deal

If you're somebody who likes to eat earlier (it's better for digestion and sleep health, right?) but also like to save money, then Olive Garden should probably be your next stop.

For a limited time, Olive Garden is offering those with an insatiable appetite earlier in the evening a special called the "Early Dinner Duos" deal.

Basically, for $8.99 (although this may vary from location to location), you'll be able to take your pick from unlimited soup or salad (and breadsticks, of course!), as well as a choice from a limited selection of entrees.

The deal is available during non-peak hours, obviously -- so you'll want to get to Olive Garden between 3 to 5 p.m. to capitalize on the deal. Additionally, it's only available on Monday through Thursday, so weekend diners will have to pay full price.

The different entrees you can choose from include:

- Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

- Fettuccine Alfredo

- Eggplant Parmigiana

- Five Cheese Ziti al Forno

- Soup & Salad (in case you want to forgo an entree and just get both)

- Lasagna Classico

- Cheese Ravioli with Marinara

- Ravioli di Portobello

- Chicken Parmigiana

- Grilled Chicken Parmigiana

- Chicken Piccata

Did you know that there are a staggering 50 different possible combinations you can make with the options available?

Soup options at Olive Garden include Minestrone, Zuppa Toscana, Pasta Fagioli, and Chicken & Gnocchi.
