There’s just one catch – you have to order at least $125 worth of food and be willing to pay a 15 percent delivery fee for orders up to $500 and a 5 percent delivery fee for every dollar thereafter.

The catering delivery service is designed to make organizing special events easier by allowing hosts to spend more time with their guests and less time preparing the menu.

Olive Garden has a special catering menu with meal combos featuring Olive Garden favorites to help make the experience as painless as possible.

Each delivery order comes with grated cheese, serving and eating utensils, table covers, plates, napkins and Olive Garden’s signature mints.

In addition to catering delivery, Olive Garden is introducing new menu items today:

  • Grilled Chicken and Grilled Vegetables Piadinas: A rich, buttery piadina filled with cheeses, fresh spinach and your choice of grilled chicken or vegetables. With roots that go back centuries, this popular Italian street fare is now part of Olive Garden’s Create Your Own Lunch Combination menu.
  • Create Your Own Tour of Italy: Guests can customize their own version of Olive Garden’s Tour of Italy, featuring the guest’s choice of three tastes on one plate.
  • Tuscan Sirloin: Grilled 11-ounce sirloin topped with garlic-herb butter and whole roasted garlic. Served with garlic-Parmesan mashed potatoes.
  • Mozzarella Fritti: An appetizer featuring golden-fried mozzarella cheese, topped with an Alfredo drizzle and served with marinara sauce.
