"We value everyone as family and friends, and that means trying to make our guests' experiences truly memorable," said Jay Spenchian, executive vice president, Olive Garden. "Through this sweepstakes, we'll offer a fortunate couple the opportunity to experience everything that Olive Garden loves about Italy: the delicious food and wine, generosity and hospitality of its people and even a little romance."

During the week, winners will travel to Florence, Renaissance epicenter and capital of Tuscany, to continue their Italian adventure. The prize will include hotel accommodations and meals to help complete the romantic retreat. Olive Garden is also offering individuals an opportunity to win a daily $25 gift card to the restaurant when they enter the sweepstakes.
