  • The walls of the Olive Garden restaurant on Commercial Drive are going up, and its doors should be open to the public in August, an official with Darden Restaurants Inc. said.

    Construction on the 7,735-square-foot, Tuscan farmhouse-inspired restaurant began in March. The restaurant will seat about 245 guests, Tara Gray, manager for media and communications for Darden, said in an email.
    Approximately 180 people would be hired to work at the Olive Garden in various positions, such as “servers, hosts, bussers, bartenders and culinary staff,” Gray said. Hiring will start in early July, and those interested in a position can apply through the Olive Garden website, she said.
    A final site plan was reviewed and unanimously approved by the town’s Planning Board in January, prompting the start of construction.
    The restaurant will be located at 4636 Commercial Drive, between Metro Mattress and Moe's Southwest Grill.
