Olive Garden, the Darden Restaurants Inc. chain of Italian restaurants, said it's launching a "Never Ending Classics" promotion on Monday, an extension of the popular unlimited offer. The five entrees included in the promotion are spaghetti with meat sauce, Fettucine Alfredo, Lasagna Classico, Chicken Alfredo, and chicken parmigiana. Dishes start at $11.99. Guests can mix and match among the dishes with each refill, and can also order unlimited soup, salad and breadsticks. The offer lasts through March 6. This latest promotion adds to the Olive Garden's list of "never ending" promotions, which includes the "Never Ending Pasta Bowl" and the "Never Ending Pasta Pass" that allows seven weeks of access to the brand's unlimited pasta bowl offer. Darden shares are unchanged in premarket trading and up 18.6% for the last year. The S&P 500 index is up 19.1% for past 12 months.
