Unlimited Pasta for Seven Weeks in 2016 for $100.00

I f you enjoy eating pasta, this deal is for you: $100.00 gets you a Never Ending Pasta Pass of unlimited Never Ending Pasta Bowls which will be valid any day of the week for seven weeks at participating Olive Garden restaurants in the United States. The link to this deal will be available on Thursday, September 15, 2016 at 1:30 in the afternoon Eastern Daylight Time; and the sale starts promptly at 2:00 in the afternoon.

Last year, all 2,000 Never Ending Pasta Passes were claimed in one second — which is why you are getting this notice in advance. This year, 21,000 Never Ending Pasta Passes will be available — but the sale will only be available via the official Internet web site of this promotion for one hour at the maximum or until the Never Ending Pasta Passes sell out, whichever comes first. There is a limit of one Never Ending Pasta Pass per transaction; and you will be able to purchase a Never Ending Pasta Pass for someone else instead of yourself, if you prefer.

If you miss out on the sale, you still have a chance to procure a Never Ending Pasta Pass via a charity auction which will immediately follow the sale, as Olive Garden will be auctioning 21 Never Ending Pasta Passes — with all sales proceeds benefiting the hunger relief organization Feeding America.

Each Never Ending Pasta Bowl meal consists of pasta, sauce, and a single topping serving from the promotional Never Ending Pasta Bowl menu. All other entrées are excluded from this promotion. Each meal is for one person and may not be shared; but you and your guests seated at the same table receive complimentary Coca-Cola soft drinks — or unflavored iced tea — and refills.

Sales tax will not be applicable for Never Ending Pasta Bowl items and and soft drinks covered by the Never Ending Pasta Pass.

The Never Ending Pasta Pass — for which you must be 18 years of age or older to purchase or use — is:

  • Not a gift card
  • Not valid in Puerto Rico
  • Cannot be reloaded
  • Cannot be transferred without permission
  • Holds no value
  • Does not include gratuity, alcoholic beverages, and any other menu item not listed herein are not included in this offer,
  • Amount paid — if applicable — is cannot be refunded.

Use signifies agreement to all terms and the privacy policy of Olive Garden. Other terms and conditions may apply.


The Never Ending Pasta Bowl starts at $9.99 — which means that if you had one meal per day for seven weeks, that comes out to $2.04 per meal. You would need to eat a Never Ending Pasta Bowl at Olive Garden at least ten times to break even — and that is not counting the soda or iced tea.

This could be a good offer when traveling around the United States and you want to fill up by eating without “breaking the bank” and first thinking about where to eat; but I have more fingers on both of my hands than times at which I dined at an Olive Garden — so I most likely will not participate in this offer, which some people might find cheesy…

…but then again, what are you sup pasta do?!?

This is the end of the article; but if you are a glutton for punishment, below is my song parody of It’s Impossible — with absolutely no apologies by Perry Como — in honor of this deal.

Sauce — er…I mean Source: Olive Garden.

It’s In Pasta Bowl

It’s in pasta bowl, where spaghetti meets the sauce
It’s just in pasta bowl
It’s in pasta bowl, next to salad which is tossed
It’s just in pasta bowl

Can I order fettuccine
Or perhaps rigatoni
Split the meal — I am not permitted to do
With what’s in pasta bowl

Can the diners keep from rushing to the door
It’s just in pasta bowl
If I had meatballs, all I would want is more
It’s just in pasta bowl

And tomorrow
Should you ask me to eat at Olive Garden again
I would tell you yes, just let me know when
Don’t want to live without my
Never Ending Pasta Bowl

Asiago garlic alfredo is nice if
It’s just in pasta bowl
But five cheese marinara will suffice if
It’s just in pasta bowl

And tomorrow
Should I want more angel hair to eat, I would get it
I would eat too much and live to regret it
I just really enjoy my
Never Ending Pasta Bowl
In pasta bowl, mmm
In pasta bowl

    As an Italian, I feel very sorry for people that think Olive Garden is an Italian restaurant. They are a semi fast food restaurant that serves mediocre Americanized pre-made “Italian” dishes for people that are lazy to cook at home. If you ever eaten real Italian food you would never step on that place.

      That is the reason why you do not see Italian anywhere in the article, Santastico.

      I will go one step further: if you have ever eaten fresh homemade pasta, Olive Garden may not exactly be the best place to dine…

        I was not referring to your post. But for many Americans, Olive Garden is THE Italian place to eat. I still remember my nonna making homemade pasta from scratch every weekend. Open a can of tomato sauce?? She would slap you in the face. 🙂 Everything was simple but very fresh. Nothing processed.
