Olive Garden's Senior Vice President of Marketing Jaime Bunker, said per Food & Wine, “After a couple years of our guests asking for its return, we are delighted to bring back our fan-favorite Never Ending Pasta Bowl offer.

“The offer, now in its 25th year at Olive Garden, is one of the most popular in our company's history, because it reflects exactly what our loyal guests expect when they dine with us: never-ending, abundant, craveable Italian food at an everyday value. We're thrilled to celebrate this moment with them, and with pasta lovers everywhere."

This news definitely comes as a bit of a shock as Rick Cardenas, the president and CEO of Olive Garden's parent company Darden Restaurants, has previously hinted that the Bowl may only exist in our most “carb-heavy memories.”

He said during an earnings call last December that Olive Garden had decided to "reduce [...] the dependency" on the Never Ending Pasta Bowl because it was attracting plenty of customers without it.

"As we look forward, we don't know if we'll bring and when we'll bring Never Ending Pasta Bowl back because we have a never-ending abundance every day with our never-ending first course," he said.
