Calling all Olive Garden fans! It’s that time of year again. Time to talk about the Never Ending Pasta Pass.
But this year there’s a twist.
Olive Garden is removing the limits on “never ending” this year with the return of its Never Ending Pasta Pass and the introduction of the first-of-its-kind Lifetime Pasta Pass, according to a news release.
“Olive Garden has always been known for Italian Generosity and making everyone feel like family, which is why we introduced our Pasta Pass five years ago,” said Jennifer Arguello, executive vice president of marketing for Olive Garden, said in the release. “With the introduction of our new Lifetime Pasta Pass, we’re excited to be a part of our biggest fans’ memories around the table for years to come.”
You’ll have to act fast. There will only be 24,000 Never Ending Pasta Passes sold for $100 (plus tax). The first 50 guests to complete their transaction can opt-in for a Lifetime Pasta Pass for an additional $400 ($500 total, plus tax).
Set an alert.
Pasta Passes will go on sale at 2 p.m. Aug. 15 at www.PastaPass.com for 30 minutes or until they are sold out. The online waiting room will open at 1:55 p.m. ET.
