People are flooding to social media conflicted after a TikToker revealed they broke Olive Garden's main endless pasta rule.
Endless pasta? Count me in. However, like all good deals which sound too good to be true, there are a few catches when it comes to munching your way through as many carbs as possible at Olive Garden Italian Restaurants in the US.
Prepare yourself for the moment a TikToker and her friends found this out the hard way:
As per the Olive Garden's website, it has a 'Never-Ending Pasta Pass' which allows a pass holder to 'enjoy the Never-Ending Pasta Bowl menu at Olive Garden as many times as they wish in-restaurant for nine weeks'.
It continues: "That's right - unlimited pasta, sauce and toppings, plus all the soup or salad and breadsticks at Olive Garden for nine weeks!"
It notes the pass is 'not available for redemption with To Go orders, but in-restaurant redemptions are unlimited with the Never-Ending Pasta Pass' and the Lifetime Pasta Pass 'offers the same benefits as the Never-Ending Pasta Pass, but for the rest of your life!'
Take note the restaurant says the never-ending pasta is available for 'pass holders'.
TikToker Ruth - who goes by the username @yuh1005 - took to the platform on Thursday (16 November) to share her experience when at the restaurant with some friends.
The video shows Ruth and her two friends sat at a table inside one of the branches of the pasta restaurant, with drinks and multiple plates of pasta.
The caption reads: "Olive Garden unlimited pasta but we got yelled at twice by the server and manager for sharing."
And it's left other TikTok users very divided.
One user said: "Server here <3: it's like a buffet, you can't go in a buffet and one person pays, only one person payed for unlimited food."
However, another added: "WHY DO THEY CARE?!!"
A third commented: "i’m an olive garden server and i personally don’t rlly care that much or enforce it but it actually is a rule."
And a fourth wrote: "It's unlimited anyways tho? who cares if I shard."
According to Olive Garden's website neither the 'Never-Ending Pasta Pass' or 'Lifetime Pasta Pass' can be shared.
It states: "[They are] only for use by the Passholder whose name is printed on the Pass. Passes are personalized and non-transferable without authorization.
"Passholders must present a photo I.D. along with Pass at time of ordering."
